It is time for another Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop. We have a lot of participants this month. We enjoy designing with Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies and hope we give you a lot of inspiration. If you started at the beginning of the hop, you came from Dina's blog. You have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Heartfelt Creations. All you have to do is visit each blog in this design team hop and leave a comment; maybe you will be the lucky winner. This hop ends Friday, December 2nd at midnight and the winner will be announced Saturday at noon.
My card was created with the Heartfelt Creations "Holiday Poinsettia Candle PreCut Set" (HCPC 3419) and the "Petite Poinsettia Precut Set" (HCPC 3415). The design paper is from the Basic Gray "Sweet Threads" paper pack I received from my friends, Dianna and Marsha, that came to visit and stamp. The wreath was created using the Cheery Lynn Pine Branches (B146).
The beautiful Heartfelt Creations candle was stamped with VersaMark Ink and gold embossed. Extra flowers, from the Petite Poinsettia stamp set were also stamped and gold embossed. These flower match the Spellbinders Poinsettia dies. The candle image was cut out using scissors. The flowers were shaped using tools from the Flower Tool Kit and a gold flat backed bead was added to the center of the flowers. The pinecones were created by using the Sizzix "Tattered Pinecone" die. Bright gold glitter was added to some of the poinsettia leaves and the edges of the pinecones.
The wreath was created by die cutting a lot of pine branches and were shaped by gluing them on a round, open center, doily (Cheery Lynn Nautical Wheeler Doily). The pine branch die comes with two dies in the set, so it made it faster to die cut them. Gold round beads were added around the wreath and gold glitter added to some of the branches. The Candle arrangement was placed on top of the wreath. A pinecone was added to each side of the flowers and a gold cord bow added. A piece of gold trim was added along the bottom of the card.`
