CardMaker and Heartfelt Creations Blog Hop

It's time for another blog hop with CardMaker Magazine...and today we are hopping with one of my all time favorite companies, Heartfelt Creations! I know you will be so inspired by the gorgeous creations along the way.  I chose to work with one of their newest collection, Farmer's Market.  I love how delicate the die cuts around the berries.

Heartfelt Creations Alumni DT Hop for October

 Welcome, to the October Edition of the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog hop! The hop runs now through Friday night - at midnight.  And one lucky commenter, chosen from one of the stops on the blog hop, will win a $25 gift certificate to HC.  How great is that?  You get to hop around and see some wonderful projects, plus have the chance to win some goodies of your own!  The winner will be announced on Saturday, October 31, and will have 72 hours to claim their prize.

 I was really lucky to visit the Heartfelt Creations booth at the Smokey Mountain Rubberstamp and Scrapbook show in Tennessee a couple of weekends ago. It is always so amazing to see such an overwhelming collection of projects using these gorgeous stamps and dies! So I was inspired to come home and pull out some of my favorite supplies and start creating!

Santa's Coming with Joy Clair

Oh, is this not the cutest Christmas scene?!!!! I love this stamp set from Joy Clair - it made creating this vignette so easy.  For the sky, I inked the background with a brayer, and then heat embossed Santa with black powder.  I punched a 1" circle and inked it to look like the moon. The sentiment was heat embossed with silver. The houses were stamped, but then decorated with a little snowy glitter, and then they were nestled behind a snowy hill die cut.


Merry Christmas Angel

Good morning! Over on the Technique Junkies Blog, we are celebrating 30 Days of Christmas Cards! And this is my first creation for the event. I love kraft and gold together, and thought that the Folk Art Angel would be great to use with this color scheme. I dry embossed the background and heat embossed the angel. The sentiment, Merry Christmas 2, was stamped on the kraft paper.  And what is Christmas without a big festive bow?
