Cream and gold fence

I am having a wonderful time creating Christmas cards with the new Heartfelt Creations Christmas stamps and dies and papers.  This is actually a cream linen paper so the old paper distressed ink worked perfect for the fence. I just sponged some of the old paper on the fence and colored in the latch with a copic marker.  The holy and berries were colored with memento markers and stickles added to the berries.  I added some white Flower Soft along the bottom for the snow.  The sentiment is a peel off sticker. 

Violet Rose

I have a new granddaughter names Violet Rose.  I used one of the newest inserts from Heartfelt Creations and the classic rose papers to make this mini album for them.  These papers are gorgeous and I love that you can use this insert as a separate album.

Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose in Pinks

I just received my Classic Rose order from Heartfelt Creations and decided to play some today.  I used one of their beautiful 6x6 squares as the base for this card, cut out the smaller two sizes of roses and colored them with a copic RV69, it really does match the darker shade on the paper in real life.  I used glue and glitter to highlight the roses and leaves after watch the video that Emma Lou did on this collection.  I added just a fine peel off gold border around the light green and some stickles to accent things.  This collection is gorgeous and the dies line up so easily.  Not sure who I'm sending this card to so will add a sentiment later.

May Flowers by Power Poppy

Power Poppy's challenge for May is May Flowers.  I love this tulip image and printed it out on cryogen white paper and colored it with copic markers. I used a Cheery Lynn stitched oval die to cut it out and trimmed it in a gold pen.  I added a tulip cuttlebug embossing to the background in pale yellow and attached it to a 5x7 lavender card.  The saying is from Power Poppy's  clear stamp set blooming wonderful.   I used a Sue Wilson die for the saying.  Be sure to check out the gorgeous flower images at Power Poppy.   I used the feather and pearls to cover up where my hand moved and I got some gold on the front of the oval while I was edging it in the gold. You can always find a way to cover a boo boo.!!!!

Another Switch up Your Shades for Power Poppy

I'm entering this in the Power Poppy Switch up your shades challenge.  I used the vase of Azaleas stamp for this card and embossed it in detail gold and colored it with Twinkling H2O's. I fussy cut it out and attached it to the Spellbinders circles.  The border is a Sue Wilson border and I edged all the dies in a gold pen.  The flourish is a Cheery Lynn and the flowers are from Michaels and I colored them with a copic marker.  These last two card are thank you cards for my sister's memorial fund. She lost her battle with cancer a couple of weeks ago.

Switch up your shades

Power Poppy's challenge for this month is to change up your coloring medium.  I stamped the pretty Azaleas stamp set, embossed it in gold and used my old twinkling H2O's to color it.  I used a Sue Wilson Herald Square die set and edged it in spun sugar distress ink.  I added some pretty pink flowers on top of the Cheery Lynn flourish and pearls to finish the card.
