HEARTFELT CREATIONS alumni designers AUGUST blog hop

hello HEARTFELT CREATIONS friends! 

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

i decided to go purple this months and here is what i've prepared for you:


i stamped the HCPC 3323 large elegant word background with versamark ink on green cardstock and heat emboss the set using SNS gold detail embossing powder [EP168]. after the embossing powder has cooled down, i ruffled the edges of the cardstock using TIM HOLTZ distressing tool and adhered it to the card base with mounting foam tape.


to create the oval layers for my card i used SPELLBINDERS floral ovals die and nestabilities ovals small die. i heat embossed the inner part of the second layer using HCPC 3323 large elegant word background stamp and SNS gold detail embossing powder [EP168]

for the sentiment banner i used HCPC3321 believe precut set with golden embossing powder.


to create the cardinal bird i used one of HEARTFELT CREATIONS vintage precut stamp set - HCPC3353 cardinla family. i stamped the image on creme coloured cardstock using RANGER brown archival ink and coloured it with PANPASTELS.

i created the branch, using HCPC3490 holiday mail precut set. i stamped the image on green cardstock and fussy cut the small details.


to create my card i used the following HC products:
