November Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop...

Good morning friends! I'm here this morning to share a card and invite you to follow along with our monthly Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop!  Each month we get together and share things we have made with you and offer up a huge amount of inspiration.  I'm always happy to see what the girls have made and I'm always totally inspired by their creativity!

Since we are entering the Christmas season, I thought what better way to start the season than with a bright and cheerful Christmas card!  I love the look of the pale poinsettia and the bright ribbon together.  All this set against a white background with a pop of gold in the center.  Happy Christmas to everyone!

There is a $25 gift certificate to be given away to one lucky person so you must visit as many of the participating designers as you can and leave a comment on each blog because we never know from which blog the winner will be chosen.

If you arrived here from: Emilia van den Heuvel's blog you are right on track and your next stop will be:  Kathy Clement's blog.

You have until Midnight,November 27th. to leave a comment on as many of our blogs as you can.  The winner of the $25 gift certificate will be announced on Saturday, November 28th.  Good luck to everyone!

Tis the Season....

Three more days until Thanksgiving and then it's a headlong dash into Christmas!  Everyone is so busy but it's a lovely time of year!
This morning I want to share another window card I made this past week.

I used my window die(Grand Madison from Poppy Stamps) and cut out this frame.  Then I stamped a Heartfelt Creations tree onto a white piece of cardstock and once the ink set, I used a cotton ball with a bit of Ranger Distress Ink on it and lightly colored in around the tree, giving my little room a nice warm glow.  I added lace behind my window frame to look like curtains for my room and then added the window frame to my card front.  Next I punched some branches with my Martha Stewart punch (Sorry I cannot remember the name) added some berries and a little bow and the window just suited me and I stopped there.

Hope you enjoy my card as much as I loved making it.  Be sure and come back tomorrow as it is the monthly Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop.  We always have so much fun and there is always so much inspiration to be found among the ladies on this team!  See you then!

Window Christmas Card

This is looking out a Christmas window to a decorated door of a shed with a sled resting against the wall.  This is my attempt at a masculine card for the Christmas Holidays.  I struggle with this type of  card and Heartfelt Creations, as always, has come through for me again!  I used some of their beautiful papers added snow to the card board, die cut some pretty snowflakes from Sue Wilson, add a couple of gold pearls,a pop of lace and you are out the door.  This one does not have to mail, but if it did, the little rose sits up just enough to cause a problem.

We are just getting ready to go slipping right into another weekend.  I hope you have some fun planned and as always "Breathe"!

WOYWW #337

Good morning friends.  Here we are again at another Wednesday and another post about What's on Your Workdesk?  Wednesday # 337   .  If you are a little curious and think you might like to join us or would just love to peep into everyone's lives and spaces, then just head over to Julia's blog and have a good look around. This time of year you find all kinds of different posts about holiday decorating and storage as well.  There is always lots to see when you just follow the links and look around.

As you can see my desk is quite busy this morning.  I'm in "tree decorations" mode and have been for about a week.  I've made ornaments for my own tree and some for my family and some for neighbors.  This morning I am working on bird houses and the one in the background has glitter drying on the roof.  I will add some branches and other pretties to the front and maybe some snow to the roof. There are two pairs of scissors, some jingle bells and a hole punch in the foreground with glue, paint, lace and ink in the background.  I think I might be using the "push back" method again!  Are you into "Holiday" mode yet?

OK, I'm off to visit.  Have a great day!

Blessings of the Season.....

I have been working on some Christmas cards lately...after all it is the season...right?  I purchased this Angel die from Crafter's Companion and it has quickly become my very favorite for this season.  You can back it with all kinds of beautiful colors or just use white on white with a pop of color in the sentiment. Whatever your heart desires.  I decided I would cut out the wings and fold the card so my angel looks like she is ready to fly.  It also gave me space to showcase my sentiment and a pretty little snowflake.  Even with the fold, this card will be flat enough for mailing.  Perfect for sending to friends and family.

I embossed the halo with silver embossing powder and used silver cardstock for the snowflake and the backing of the sentiment.  It looks very festive and I am very happy with the way this came out.  This die is also beautiful just cut out and backed on pretty colored paper.  The possibilities are numerous.
