HEARTFELT CREATIONS alumni designers SEPTEMBER blog hop


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

i finally got my set of one of my favourite HEARTFELT CREATIONS recent releases - SPARKLING POINSETTIA collection and i couldn't wait to start creating. for today, i've prepared a fancy CHRISTMAS card with sparkling poinsettias and a hand made push pin -

HCPC3684 sparkling poinsettia notes cling stamp set
HCPC3682 sparkling poinsettia swirl cling stamp set
HCPC3680 sparkling poinsettia cling stamp set
HCD1-766 sparkling poinsettia die
HCST1-401 deluxe flower shaping kit
double dots 100pc. -3D foam squares

and here are some close ups of my project:

for my background i used white cardstock, which i stamped with HCPC3684 sparkling poinsettia notes cling stamp set and embossing ink. then i heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder and coloured the cardstock with a mix of TIM HOLTZ distress ink TEA DYE and OLD PAPER.

the greenish leafy swirls i stamped with HCPC3682 sparkling poinsettia swirl cling stamp set and embossing ink, heat embossed with gold embossing powder and fussy cut the swirls. then i coloured them with TIM HOLTZ peeled paint distress ink.

for the poinsettias i used HCPC3680 sparkling poinsettia cling stamp set and HCD1-766 sparkling poinsettia die. to shape them i had the best helper ever - HEARTFELT CREATIONS' deluxe flower shaping kit. once i was satisfied with the result, i coloured the poinsettias with WORN LIPSTICK, FIRED BRICK and SQUEEZED LEMONADE distress ink pads and adhered a few gold pearls in the middle of the flowers.

i added a ribbon bow...

... and a hand-made push pin.

i hope you enjoyed my project today!
