From the Heart Stamps blog hop; the theme for September is For the Bird(brains). As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog as one random commenter will be selected from each stop on the blog hop to win an image of choice from the FTHS store. Plus one commenter on the From the Heart Stamps blog will be selected to win a $15 gift voucher to the store!
And that's not all! Have you ever had a great idea for a Birdbrain image? Well, this is your chance! One lucky winner randomly selected from all the comments left on the FTHS blog will be selected to work with Faith to design a Birdbrain image!
As you hop from blog to blog, if you like the look of the tutorial you can recreate it and don't forget to use a FTHS and your favourite Birdbrain image - just link your blog up with the InLinkz code at the bottom of each blog post as a random link will be picked to win my creation!
I've made a simple Tee-Pee card using one of my favourite FTHS images - Birdbrain Balloon - and coloured it with Promarkers and then cut it out.
Next, I printed Sassy Designs - Primary onto some thick cardstock - you will need three 11cm square peices. Sign up to the newsletter on the website as you'll get to hear of the fantastic sales where the digi paper packs are reduced to 99cents!
Score diagnally across each of the three squares to create a valley fold on the non-printed side. I've also inked all the edges with a brown Whispers inkpad (cheap and cheerful!)
To construct the Tee-Pee, lay the three squares as shown - overlapping each one. Double check that it will all fold together before you glue it, just in case (you can always trim the edges if needed to make it fold flat)
Stand the card up and embellish as desired with your favourite FTHS image! I've also added glossy accents to the balloon and eyes. And I've replaced the balloon string with an offcut of bakers twine. To keep the card shape when its stood up, I've added a button which has a foam pad underneath so that the flap rests on it and keeps it all closed. Alternatively, you can add a brad.
