Heartfelt Creations Inspiration

Don't you just love Heartfelt Creations' new Season of Joy Collection?!!! I'm sure there are going to be quite a few people squealing when they get a gorgeous Christmas card made with this collection.  I always love shiny things - but especially at Christmas - so of course I had to made an ultra glittery card to share with you .

Use watermark ink to stamp the Script Background onto vellum, and heat emboss with silver powder. Cut a piece of metallic coated paper 5 x 7", and cut the Large Label from the center, then using the basketweave embossing folder, dry emboss the metallic paper.  Mount the stamped vellum to the back side.  Adhere to a light blue printed paper.  Roll the corners of the patterned paper towards the center.  Cut two decorative pieces from the Ornamental Add On set, and glue to the center.  Cut the two snowflake pieces from the Banner and Trees set, glue together and add a Sparklet to the center.  Use foam adhesives to add to the center cluster.  Use the dries clear adhesive to run a line of glue around the inner and outer borders of the embossed silver paper, and sprinkle the Shaved Ice embellishment over (You could substitute glitter or Flower Soft for this step).  Add Sparklets to the corners and finish with a bow.

Kromekote Papers from WorldWin

 Today I have a card to share with you using the new Kromekote papers from WorldWin.  In real life, these papers are so shiny and pretty - and no matter how I tried, I really could not capture this finish in my photo.
It really does remind me of shiny nail polish!  I used a mother of pearl and a deep red and combined them with the Elan Metallics for a very elegant card.  The sentiment was from Inspired by Stamping and was heat embossed with a black embossing powder.  The dies are all from Spellbinders.

I will have more Kromekote projects over the next several weeks, so be sure to stop back by.
