Can you believe that in just a few more days we will begin a new year! I have loved working with all the Heartfelt Creations new stamp collections and dies that have come out this year. It is time for the last blog hop of the year for the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team. If you came from Olga's blog, you started at the beginning. Be sure to leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate.
The Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies I used today are: Carnation Florals 2 Precut Set (HCPC 3438); matching Spellbinder "Carnation Creation Shapeabilities"; Layered Elegant Swirl Die (HCD 716); Bella Rose Die (HCD 712). I decided to design a very feminine birthday card today. My base card is 5x7". The beautiful "Layered Elegant Swirl Die" was die cut using white card stock and layered over a pink background. The frame below was created by embossing a piece of white card using the Cuttlebug "Love Language" embossing folder. A frame was die cut using the Cheery Lynn Sweetheart Frame and it was layered over the embossed background.
A variety of flowers were stamped using the Heartfelt Creations "Carnation Florals" stamp set and they were cut out with the matching dies. They were stamped using VersaMark ink and white embossed. A light pink ink was used to add color to the flowers. A punch was used to create the stamens in all the flowers. The pretty Bella Rose Die was used to die cut the green leaves and flourish. The leaves were sponged prior to taking them out of the die. The flourish was attached inside the frame then the flowers were glued around it. Two die cut butterflies (Cheery Lynn Mini Butterflies), were added. The sentiment is from JustRite. Martha Stewart punched branches and a few Kaiser Craft white pearls were added to complete the card. The punched border behind the card was created using the Martha Stewart "Double Arches" punch.
The next stop on this blog hop is Carla. Be sure to go over to see her beautiful card.
One lucky person will win a $25 gift certificate to Heartfelt Creations. All you have to do is leave a comment on each blog in this hop before midnight Friday, Dec 30th. A random winner will be chosen from all these comments. The winner will be posted on Dec 31 by noon.
