Heartfelt Creations DT Alumni Hop

(Note: I have no idea what is going on with Blogger; he seems to have taken it into his head to change the color and spacing all willie, nillie and won't let me change it?!)   

It's time for the Heartfelt Creations Design Team Alumni monthly blog hop...and this month I have the privilege of being a part of the hop.  We've chosen the last Tuesday of each month to share a project featuring Heartfelt Creations' stamps when we can, just for fun.  If you'd like a chance at winning a prize, be sure to leave a comment on every blog along the hop by Friday - there is a $25 gift certificate up for grabs for one random commenter!  How cool is that?!  I am at the top of the hop list today, so if you're ready to hop, you are in the right place!

For today I am sharing a rather rustic Christmas card, which is a different style for me.  I stamped the Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set onto vintage music paper with Cherry Red ink and then embossed with clear EP.  I used Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia die and then inked everything  with Walnut Stain.  I added Star Dust Stickles to the flower and leaves and then added some red rhinestones.

The hop will close Friday November 30th at midnight EST, so hop along and leave comments with each of the ladies between now and then for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.  The winner will be announced on Saturday December 1st.


So now you're ready to hop on to your next stop which is Kristina Andersen http://reflectionsofahappycrafter.blogspot.ca/
