HC Alumni DT July Bloghop ~

Good morning! We are hoppin' today with the Heartfelt Alumni DT for July! The fun that comes with that is you get a chance to win a gift certificate to use in the store! Here's to winning at Heartfelt Creations!!!

My card features a retired set from Heartfelt. It was the first set I ever owned. Flora Grande 2 caught my attention at a stamp show some years back and I  bought the matching dies. I combined this flower with the Delicate Asters paper collection and adhered my shaped flower atop the preprinted aster. I added stickles to the flowers to give them some dazzle. I stamped sentiments from the Beautiful You precut set to the tags from the flower pot die set and finished it off with the silk ribbon. 

Be sure to visit each Alumni DT member and leave your comment before it closes on Fri. Aug. 2nd at midnight. The winner will be announced on participating blogs at noon on Sat. Aug. 3rd.

Today is a New Day ~

Good morning! I love the simplicity of the sentiment on this card, it sums up the new mercies we have daily. I used the newly released Celebrate Today to create this card.

The background is created by masking off portions with postit notes and applying colour with distress inks. I used three colours. I reversed the masks and stamped the flower in black ink within the blocks. I peeled off the masks and my card was finished. I added the newly released doily border dies to finish off the edges. To give some embellishment I added a bow and very few rhinestones to accent the blue.  Hope you like it! 

Materials used: 
Stamps: Celebrate Today
Inks: Ranger distressed inks - barn red, crushed olive, peacock feathers, Versafine black
Paper: SU very vanilla, black
Accessories: SNSS doily border dies, ribbon, rhinestones

With Sympathy ~

Good morning! I want to share a card from Flower Blocks2 and a "delightful sneak peek" that creates the background. The flower was stamped in versafine black ink and coloured using copics. The background is stamped using regular dye inks and "coloured" with a sponge using ranger distress inks. The dp is coloured by adding the same colour to match the colours in the background. I stamped the sentiment on bazzill cs and trimmed to create a fishtail banner. The die is one that is part of tonight's full reveal.
