Thanks for joining our blog hop!  I know you will find lots of inspiration.  I created the background for my card using the Large Elegant Word Background stamp.  I inked an embossing folder with Victorian Velvet distress ink and embossed the panel.  I then swiped my Delicata Gold ink pad over the raised design.  I stamped the center design and colored with Victorian Velvet.  I added some Stampendous Shabby White Embossing Enamel and some rhinestones.  The sentiment was embossed with gold embossing powder.

Heartfelt Creations June Alumni Blog Hop

Hello friends! It's that time again when we are hosting the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop. As always, you will have the chance to win a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.   All you have to do is comment on each blog that is participating in the hop. Hop starts 8am EST on Tuesday June 28 and closes Friday July 1st at midnight.

Today I used the Farmers Market paper collection to make my card.  I used one of the card fronts for the base.  'In the garden' panel is a cut out from the paper collection and I adhered it with foam tape.  The ticket and sentiment are also cut outs from the collection and are also on foam tape.  I then stamped and die cut the leaf clusters and colored with Prismacolor pencils.  A sweet little upside down bow adds the finishing touch.

Thank You


There is a very sweet, simple sketch at 'From The Heart' sketch challenge this week.  The twist is to create a gratitude card. 

 I used one of my favorite images, Lil Birdie.  She has been colored with Prismacolor pencils.  The panel was matted and adhered with foam tape.  The sentiment was created in Photoshop Elements and I added some rhinestones for some sparkle.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!

Sprinkled With Love

This is a card I created for the progressive challenge at 'from the heart stamps'.  I recolored the sentiment (which comes with the image) in Photoshop Elements and then printed it directly on the card.  The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils.


To create the shaker embellishment, I used a very large wiggly eye.  I removed the back and then printed the image and adhered it to the back of the plastic.  This has become my favorite way of making shakers.

Challenges
From the Heart Stamps: use ice cream image
Crafty Gals Corner: summertime fun 
Sisterhood of Crafters: summer fun
The Crafty Addicts: anything goes/summertime
Through The Craft Room Door: anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting and have a blessed day!

Life's A Wave


It looks as if summer might finally be here, yay!  And what better way to celebrate than catching a wave!  This is one of the new images from 'from the heart stamps'.  The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and I used some Stampendous Shabby White embossing enamel for the waves.  I followed the sketch at 'from the heart stamps sketch challenge'.  

  At least, I hope it qualifies.  I'm never sure how much I can manipulate a sketch.  But the twist was to make a circular card so I made a circular easel card. 

Challenges
from the heart sketch challenge
Coffee, Chocolate, & cards:  use a die cut
Crafting with Friends:  anything goes

You Are Toadally Awesome!


Today I have another card share with an image from 'from the heart stamps'.  I am thoroughly enjoying these images; they just make me smile!  There is a single image of the fly and so I duplicated it and then printed it on some DP and then cut the banner.  The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils.

I used their sketch and the twist.
Hope you are having an awesome day!  Thanks for visiting!

Flamingos and Hot Chicks


This adorable flamingo image is a digital stamp from 'from the heart stamps'.  I duplicated the image and then flipped it.  The sketch is this weeks 'from the heart' sketch challenge and the twist was to fussy cut the image so I did that and placed them on pop dots.  The sentiment is part of the collection.
