Just a note.. Thank you

I had my first experience with Heartfelt Creations stamps a couple of weeks ago at a craft retreat. Although I am not going to run out and buy any sets just yet I did love the way they stamped.

I took advantage of having access to the stamps and made a couple of backgrounds.

I used my Misti to line the stamps up to get a good impression then I used a stamp block for the small corner placements. I used Versamark ink with some clear embossing powder. I added a layer of black cardstock for a frame.

I stamped the sentiment then added a layer of black cardstock to that as well then popped it up with foam tape.

I still might add a little something like sequins to jazz it up a bit.

Supplies: White, black and kraft cardstock, Heartfelt Creations - Peony Bud and Blossom Cling, Penny black

Keeping Christmas - Feb 2019 - Merry and Bright

Welcome back for the February edition of the Keeping Christmas Series.
For this card, I used a simple layout that would be easy to reproduce or make multiple cards.

I started with a grey panel then added two smaller panels of designer paper, in this case, it was a double-sided sheet which makes it easy to match. I leave a small strip of cardstock visible between the two panels for an added element.

I heat embossed the sentiment and layered it with more grey cardstock then popped it up with foam tape. I finished the card with some white Nuvo drops.

Supplies: White and grey cardstock, Designer Paper Authentique, Hero Art - Poster Christmas Carol, Nuvo Drops.
