Heartfelt Creations blog, Linda and Emma Lou will be sharing some of the projects made by the new design team members, as well as the remaining team members. I am so anxious to get to see these projects and I know they are going to be a feast for our eyes. So plan to go over and check it out!
My card this morning features a classic Christmas Bell with a Heartfelt Creations twist! I just love the beautiful poinsettia flowers on this bell!
Heartfelt Creations Products Used: HCPC 3422 Poinsettia Cheer Bells PreCut Set
Other Supplies: Spellbinders Grand Labels 4 and Parisian Accents dies, Grand Calibur, sewing machine, cream card stock, turquoise card stock, Canson watercolor paper, Prisma pencils, Copic marker, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, blending stumps, gamsol, Scor-Tape, glue
Instructions: My card size is 5 X 7. Make card base out of watercolor paper. Some of you have asked why I use so much watercolor paper on my cards even though parts are not water colored. The reason for this is I love the stability I achieve with the heavy watercolor paper. A card base made of this can stand up to almost anything you can load onto it. I cut my layers 1/4" smaller than the base and stitched around the edges, then attached to card base. Stamp image onto cream card stock and color with Prisma pencils and then I used gamsol and a blending stump to help with the blending and shading. Cut out with the die and then I used the same die, placed it onto a different piece of card stock and traced around the outside edges of the die. I cut it out and used it for a layering piece for the image. Attach this to the card. Cut out the accent pieces and glue to the card front. There you have it!
