Heartfelt Creations Alumni Designers Blog Hop



It is time to see more beautiful cards designed by the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team.  I am first in the Blog Hop this month and the next designer's blog to visit is Dina Kowal.   As in the past, if you visit each designer's blog and leave a comment, you will have a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.  There are 6 designers participating in this hop.

 For my card this month I used a combination of the Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch stamps and dies with the new design paper from the 'Sweet Serenity' collection.  As I have said before, I love collecting stamps from Heartfelt Creations because they continue to release additional new stamps and design papers that match/coordinate together with older stamp sets. 

I used the Heartfelt Creations "Hydrangea/Posy Branch PreCut Set" for the large flower on top of the design paper.  A lot of the smallest Posy Patch flowers from the 'Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set' were stamped in different shades of purple card stock then die cut with the matching Posy Patch dies.  These little flowers were glued to the 'Hydrangea/Posy Branch.  In the center of most of the little posy flowers, I added some purple Stickles.  

The background is a piece of black card stock, layered on top of it is a piece of purple card stock that was distressed with the Zutter Distress It.  The design paper was attached on top and some of the flowers were darkened using Copic markers.  The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Creations 'Script Aster Background preCut Set'.  A purple silk bow and black Kaiser Craft pearls were added to complete the card.

Be sure to visit all the blogs in this hop, and leave a comment, for a chance to win that $25 Gift Certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.

I love HC stamps as well. Yes, it is nice how they still coordinate newer releases with the older dies. I love what you have done with this stamp set. I have this set and you've inspired me to try to do it justice like you have.
