Heartfelt Creations Alumni DT July Bloghop~

Good morning Heartfelt Creations fans and friends! Can it be July already? I am certain the Alumni DT has an amazing lineup of projects to share with you again. Be sure to leave a comment on each blog and remember to do so before it closes on Fri. August 1st at midnight. What is a bloghop without a prize?? The winner will receive $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations and will need to email Emma Lou with "Winner of July Alumni Hop" on subject line. And here we go! 

My project uses the lovely blooms from the sun kissed fleurs, sun kissed fleur die  and combined with the leaves and swirls from the decorative flower pot die. First I covered the wooden frame with the lovely Floral key Collection. The edges of the frame are sponged using 3D paint. The flowers were stamped in black onto regular vanilla cardstock, die cut with the matching dies and coloured using Viva Decors' 3D stamp paints. After which I shaped each flower using the paper blossoms tool kit and molding mat. After selecting and layering the petals to my liking, I layered them onto crisp white Raindrops on Roses die and adhered to frame using my dries clear glue. To finish my frame, I added green prills to the centres of each fleur.

SNSS You are Special ~

Good Morning Sweet'nSassy Fans!  Recently I had tea with a friend and the amazing detail of decor, sweet little vases filled with flowers and leaves, home baked scones, lemon curd and devonshire cream....I could go on! The most touching was that she did all this for me. Just because. 

My card uses Diane Z's illustration Special Blend. I coloured the image with copics and layered the handcut image (silly me, I forgot I had the die!) onto Cheery Lynn's french pastry doily. It is laughable what I can do or not do for that matter. You can use the matching special blend die if you remember. Next, I tied the silky ribbon directly through the doily. The sentiment is from Gloria Stengle's  Birthday Word Art set.

Materials used:
Stamps: Special Blend, Birthday Word Art
Inks: SU Calypso Coral, Memento black, copics
paper: SU
Accessories: Cheery Lynn Die, Ribbon, dimensionals

SNSS Peace and Joy ~

Happy Saturday morning! My card uses one of the new stamps from yesterday's Christmas in July release, the  Christmas Innies. These stamps are perfect as card fronts as well as messages for the inside of your cards...I love the versatility! 

The sentiment on my card is stamped directly on the card base. I created fishtail banners by hand and embellished it with ricrac trim and paper rosette. Rhinestones were added to the lower right hand corner for balance. 

Materials Used:
Stamps: Christmas Innies
Paper: Kraft CS, MME 
Ink: SU Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Rhinestones, ricrac trim, rosette
