HEARTFELT CREATIONS alumni designers NOVEMBER blog hop


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

as CHRISTMAS is approaching fast all i can think of is poinsettias, CHRISTMAS trees and presents! and of course what is better than a hand-made card full with sparkles and glitter!!!

today's inspiration is from me is a vintage CHRSTMAS card created with my all time favourite HEARTFELT CREATIONS' release - SPARKLING POINSETTIA collection -

HCPC3684 sparkling poinsettia notes cling stamp set
HCPC3681 sparkling poinsettia candle cling stamp set
HCPC3683 joy to the world 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

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.

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.

the greenish leafy swirls i stamped with HCPC3683 joy to the world 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 my sentiment i used HCPC3681 sparkling poinsettia candle cling stamp set with gold embossing powder. i gave a bit of colour to the white cardstock using TIM HOLTZ old paper distress ink.

i hope you enjoyed my project today!
