Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop

It is time for the March Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop.  If you have come from Carla Suto's blog you are going in order.  There are 8 designers participating in the hop this month.  You will want to visit each blog and leave a comment.  Someone will be picked randomly from one of the designer blogs and win a $25 Gift Certificate from Heartfelt Creations.

My card was designed using the Heartfelt Creations Autumn Corsage stamp (1229G).  This stamp has berries under the flower but I wanted to use it as a Spring flower because it reminds me of flowers on a rose bush I have, so I cut the berries off.  The image was stamped three times.  The whole image, minus the berries was cut out; just the flower; then the center portion of the flower.    Each layer was colored using Koh-I-Noor pencils and OMS, then the three layers attached using pop dots.  Before layering, each level was shaped using the Flower Tool Kit to give it dimension.


In this picture you can see the dimension of the flower.  The background is a piece of the Cosmo Cricket "Tea for Two" Mini Deck.  The lace under the flower is the Heartfelt Creations "Decorative Lace Border" (HCD 713).  The flower was attached with dimensional dots.  The small pink flowers were stamped using the Heartfelt Creations "Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set" (HCPC 3303) and cut out with the matching dies (HCD 701).  They were also colored using the Koh-I-Noor pencils and oms.  Yellow Flower Soft was added to the center of all the flowers.  The border along the top of the card is the Memory Box "Pepita Border" (98256).  The tag is one of the Spellbinders "Ribbon Banners" and the sentiment is from the Heartfelt Creations "Springtime Cardinal Collection" sentiment set.  

Remember to leave a comment below then your next stop will be to Clare's blog.  Enjoy to blog hop and we hope we have given you lots of inspiration along the way.  

All the products I use can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
