Heartfelt Creations Wednesday....

Good morning everyone and welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday.  We have once again come to the middle of the week and I feel like the camel in the insurance commercial that keeps asking everyone "Do you know what day it is?"  Well folks it's hump day of the most special kind.....Heartfelt Creations!

So here is my creation to share with you this morning.

I almost feel like I could take a big lick of these candy canes!  This stamp just says Christmas to me!  I remember as a child getting candy canes in my stocking and what a treat they were.

Heartfelt Creations Products Used:
HCPC 3558 Striped Candy Cane PreCut Set
HCPC 3557 Christmas Poinsettia PreCut Set
HCPC 3561 Christmas Sentiment Circles PreCut Set
HCDP1 225 Frosty Blanket Paper Collection
HCD 734 Sun Kissed Fleur Die

Other Supplies:  Spellbinders (Radiant Rectangles, Labels 8, Standard Circles Large and Small, Mix & Match Ornaments) Memento ink, colored pencils, mineral spirits, white card stock, green card stock, glue, glitter, dimensional tape, half pearls, seam binding, Pro Marker

Instructions:
Using white card stock, cut out the Radiant Rectangle, Ornament, and a Labels 8.  Stamp the image on the Labels 8 and use colored pencils to color the image.  Then on the white areas of the candy canes I used glitter.  Next I stamped and colored the flower petals with the Pro Marker, then I applied glitter all over the petals.  Once dry I used dimensional tape to pop the petals and put a half pearl in the center of the flower.  I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of the paper collection then I matted it in green and applied to the ornament.  Punch a hole in the top of the Labels 8 and apply it to the rectangle with dimensional tape.  Tie the seam binding in the hole of the tag and the tag is ready to go.

Now why don't you go on over to the HC blog and have a look around.  There are so many wonderful creations I just know you will find something to inspire you!  If you would like to visit the designers individual blogs just click on their names on my side bar.  Go and leave them a comment.  We all love hearing from you.

Hi Glenda,

Oh, I love candy canes! I also remember getting them in my stocking. What great memories of childhood.
