Today I am posting another card from the beautiful new Heartfelt Creations "Countryside Evening Collection. I have used stamps from three different stamps sets in this collection. The pretty fence is from the "Weathered Fence Post PreCut Set". It was colored using the following Distress Reinkers and the Ranger Waterbrush. Here are the colors used: Fence - Pumice Stone; Leaves - Old Paper and Bundled Sage; Flowers - Weather Wood; Small Leaves and Grass - Bundled Sage Distress Marker. The image was stamped on a piece of 5.5" square of water color paper.
It does not show up well in the photo, but I used the Ranger Blending Tool and Weathered Wood Distress Ink over the entire card. To give this card a little dimension, I used the Zutter Distrezz-it-All tool to distress around it. Additional Weathered Wood Distress was added over the edges. The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Creations "Antique Lantern PreCut Set". I wanted to add the green bow and that left the lower corner a little plain, so I stamped the smallest flourish from the Heartfelt Creations "Petite Floral Swirls PreCut Set on a scrap piece of water color paper, then colored it with matching Distress Inks. It was cut out with scissors and added to the corner. A small butterfly from my stash was added.
There are so many beautiful stamps and design papers in this collection. The 12x12 design paper is beautiful and you can use it for either scrapbooking layouts or cut it in smaller pieces, which are so pretty with even just a stamped sentiment or maybe a few dimensional flowers made with the Heartfelt Creations "Posy Patch" stamps and dies (which match the flowers in this collection). Another thing I love is that when you are wanting ideas on how to color some of the stamped images, you can get great ideas from the designs in the design paper.
You can order this new Heartfelt Creations "Countryside Evening Collection" and all the other products I used from Joan's Gardens. Don't forget you can purchase the whole Countryside Evening Collection at a great discount if you order the "I Want It All" package. Here is the direct link to the Heartfelt Creations post at Joan's Gardens showing everything in this collection plus the I Want It All special price.
I have been a little slow in getting a lot of cards posted but hope to start doing more soon. I did get a bad whiplash in the auto accident my daughter and I had out on the highway. We just found out her car was totaled out because there was so much damage to it. I think, because she was driving, that her injuries are worse than mine. We are just thankful we weren't hurt much worse. You never know what is going to happen when the roads are covered in ice, even when you are being super careful!!!!!!
