HEARTFELT CREATIONS alumni designers JUNE blog hop

hello HEARTFELT CREATIONS friends! 

and WELCOME to the HEARTFELT CREATIONS alumni designers JUNE blog hop! 

here is a little bit of inspiration from me:



here is a list of some of the products i used on this project:


and here is a short tutorial on how i did it:

step 1: using the corner from HC rye grass flourish set  stamp on the blue base {10 x15 cm} for your card.


step 2: get a 10 x 15 cm piece of cardstock and begin altering it with different stamps. i used the harlequin background from HC tattered background set with blue ink and the crackled background {HC broken cinder blocks set} and the script {HC vintage life background set} with brown ink.


step 3: stamp the images you would like to use with brown ink and color them with FABER-CASTELL design memory craft GELATOS. for the bird i used 5 different colors: butterscotch, red cherry, tangerine, gold and snow cone for the eyes.

for the branch i used two shades of green: lime and spearmint.


step 4: give some extra colour to your background using the gold and blue GELATO. die cut the gears using a die cutting machine, SPELLBINDERS "sprightly sprockets" die and brown and white cardstock. begin arranging your elements on the card. i cut the large gear in two to fit better my design. 




to finish off my card i added blue pearls and brads.

i hope you enjoyed my creation today!

Love your card!!! those gears are perfect for masculine themed cards. great colour combo!

nclark said...

The metalic hardware with gears makes this masculine, but the blue pearls work well with it. Normally I would think of those to add a feminine touch. Great job!
