February Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop

Good morning everyone and welcome to the February Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop! The hop runs from today until Friday, February 26 at midnight.  There will be a $25 gift certificate to Heartfelt Creations given away so take this time to leave a comment on as many blogs as you can.   You never know which blog will have the winning comment!  We will announce the winner at Noon on Saturday, February 27.


I love tags so I decided to make one using the Once Upon a Time paper collection.  These gorgeous papers do most of the heavy lifting for me!  I cut out the tag and die cut one of the Ornate Borders and Pockets dies at the top.  I think it gives such an over the top look and it's quite elegant.  It really looks like you went the extra mile making this but it is a quick and easy addition.  All I had to do was decide which die to use and then take all the credit!  My flower is made using the Arianna Blooms stamps and die.  I stamped and die cut the flower petals then I used distress inks to color. Bundled Sage in the center and Victorian Velvet for the outer edges of the petals. The center is Gold Gala Glitz.  I sprayed water on the back side of the petals and then shaped my petals and once dry I stacked them to form this flower.  A little tip about the coloring process:  When using distress inks (they are water based) spray on the back side to keep water away from color.  Also the inks don't run as much if they are dry before you spray the water.  You can use a heat gun to dry the ink and then continue shaping your petals.  Next be sure to color your ribbon or seam binding to match your flower and tie a pretty bow!
The sentiment is just a piece of the paper cut out and matted on cardstock.  How thoughtful of Heartfelt Creations to include that for me!
