Heartfelt Creations Inspiration Wednesday

Hello, friends!  Today we have a very special new release for you from Heartfelt Creations. It's Christmas in July!

Celebrate and create inspirational Christmas greetings that spread the true meaning of the holiday season with the O Holy Night Collection from Heartfelt Creations! Immerse yourself in the Christmas story right alongside the angels who announced the Savior’s birth, the shepherds who received the good news, as well as the loving family who welcomed the holy babe in Bethlehem so many years ago! Swaddled in a traditional color palette of reds and greens mingled with hues of midnight blues, golden starlight yellows and snowy whites, this festive paper collection has been beautifully wrapped with tender lace like details, charming plaids, flowing swirls, and elegant brocades all nestled among pretty poinsettias, delicate snowflakes, fanciful Christmas ornaments and gentle images depicting that holy night when Christ was born! Three exquisite cling stamp sets along with coordinating dies provide wonderful options for creating dimensional nativity scenes, holiday themed accents such as an old fashioned scroll, a pinecone with greenery, as well as an assortment of beautifully scripted Christmas sentiments in a variety of styles perfect for all of your holiday card making! The substantially sized and intricately detailed ornament die is magnificent for creating wonderful focal point images on card fronts, stunning accents on scrapbook layouts, or for creating ornament shaped cards ready to deliver your Christmas greetings to friends and loved ones! So pause, reflect and spread the message of God’s love given that holy night so many thousands of years ago as you create and send off holiday wishes with the O Holy Night Collection.

Aren't these shepherds adorable!?  In the O Holy Night paper collection you'll find a card panel with the shepherds. I cut out the center and adhered it to the card front. Then I added some acetate behind the center opening and added it to the card with pop dots. I stamped the shepherds, colored and die cut them and added them to the acetate, off setting slightly. The pine cones are also included in the collection and add a fun element to the card.

Heartfelt Creations Inspiration Wednesday

Happy July 4th!   It's Heartfelt Creations Inspiration Wednesday.
Today I am sharing a little 6 x 6" canvas made with the Sweet as Honey collection. I used Nuvo Crystal Drops, Sugared Almond, to create the drops of honey. The word 'honey' was stamped with the sentiment from the Sweet as Honey cling stamp set, fussy cut, and then I added glossy accents. The honey pots, bee maiden, bee and honey stick were all colored with Prismacolor pencils. There are quite a few scripture verses or inspirational quotes that could be used with this collection. I hope this gives you a little inspiration.
