Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop


It is time for the May Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop. We have 11 designers participating this month and I hope we give you a lot of inspiration for working with your Heartfelt Creations stamps, dies, and design paper.  Be sure to visit each of the blogs, and leave a comment on each, so you will have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Heartfelt Creations.  Here are the 11 designers participating:
Again this month I wanted to come up with a different type of project.  I decided to use the design paper from the Heartfelt Creations "Countryside Evening Collection" and create a paper sculpture.  I love how it turned out.  I started out by cutting the design paper in fourths and using the corner with the floral design.  There are two sheets of each design in this pad, so I cut this design from both sheets.  From one of the sheets, I cut out all the little leaves and flowers, and shaped each one, then glued them over the design in the other piece to give the design dimension.  Yes, it was a little time consuming, but I think well worth it.  Next, I used the bird stamp from the "Melodious Songbird PreCut Set" to add to this sculpted design.  I cut away part of the stamped design so it would look good added to the design in the paper.  The bird was colored with chalk pencils and the leaves with a Copic marker.  I forgot to mention that I stamped the bird on the part of the design paper where I was cutting off the leaves and flowers.  It gave the bird great shading; it was attached with dimensional tape.


Here is a closeup so I hope you can see the dimension on the design.  In the center of each of the flowers I added a tiny dot of Viva "Sunny Yellow" Paper Pen.  For the sentiment I used one of the designs from another page in the "Countryside Evening Collection" pad, and backed it with a piece of black card stock.

I hope you enjoy our blog hop and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win the $25 gift certificate from Heartfelt Creations.  The winner will be announced at noon, Saturday, June 1.

Your next stop will be to Nataliya's beautiful project.
