I really love their stamps & thanks again to Emma for allowing me to be a part of their Design team! This first card was made using "Christmas Joy" 1298B and "Poinsettia & Berry Cluster" 1020C
The full directions will be posted at the Heartfelt Creations Blog
I reeealllly love Christmas, every single thing about it! I love decorating for it & I love every style from the shiny & sparkly to the antique & rustic (and every thing in between) which makes it hard to pick just one! At least with cards I can make some of every style! I love hearing your comments! Oh....and so far no one has guessed the exact amount I charged for the matts in the last post~
Saturday, October 24, 2009
Both of these matts fit an 8X10 frame, and would accommodate a 5X7 photo. All flowers are made out of cardstock using punches. I really didn't calculate exactly how long they took to make, but it took a while! The hardest part of this custom order was knowing how much to charge. Lets play a game...how much do you think I should have charged? No fair if you all ready know ~because I quoted the price at the time the order was placed. If you guess the actual amount I charged I will send you a prize!
I would love to hear your comments on these even if you don't want to make a guess!

This image is from Heartfelt Creations and I love it because it is so detailed! I used brighter lighting in the photo below so it would hopefully pick up the detail. I used Marvy LePlume markers and stamped on to watercolor paper. I used a #1 watercolor brush to paint in using the inks from the markers. Afterwards I color dusted the entire image with Antique Linen distress inks. I used nestabilities circles & Labels 3, to cut shapes. All pieces are distressed & sponged with Tea Dye distress inks. The patterned paper is by K&Co. The finished card is 5 X 5.
Thanks for stopping by! I am working on sooo many projects right now, that I hope to finish up & get posted to show you! I appreciate your comments!

The image and layer were cut using Nestabilities Labels 1. The flowers are made with cardstock punched from the small impatiens leaf & the leaves are the large holly leaves. The designer paper is from K&CO and I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the solid pink layer. The stamped sentiment is an "oldie but goodie" (meaning that it was long ago retired) from Stampin'Up.
I have a couple more vintage style things to show you in the next few days...so stay tuned! I would love to hear your thoughts on how this one turned out!

I have a monochromatic sepia toned card to share with you today. I wish my picture showed this better, but you can click on it for a larger view.The Santa stamp is from a set I bought last year by Inkadinkado. The snowflake background paper is by Graphic 45 and is double sided, the strip with the stripes (that's a mouth full) is the on the other side. I used nestabilities to cut out the shapes & the snowflakes added to the bow are from punches.
The little sentiment is by Papertrey Ink. I have to say that I recently bought my first Papertrey stamps and have fallen head over heels in love with them! They are excellent quality & a great value! I highly recommend them!

I ironed "wonder under fuseable webb" to the back of the fabric & cut out my little panel. Then ironed it right on to my cardstock. I machine stitched the edges for effect. Having it fused to the cardstock keeps in perfect place while stitching (I learned this the hard way)

I created the bag from a 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 envelope. It's called a "Bag-a-lope" If you need instructions let me know...it's so easy! This one might contain a single serving of hot chocolate, or some specialty tea bags and maybe even a gift card! The stamped image is from imaginisce (I love them cuz they are about $1.00 each)I watercolored it to match with the "eskimo kisses" papers by Basic Grey. I used scalloped square Nestabilities to cut out, & added some ribbon....Easy peasy!

I still have several Christmas cards that I made on Sat.(WCMD) so check back in with me soon!

The striped designer paper is by "Black Market Paper Society" the flowers is made using the Lilly Petals punch and Mega single Holly punch. I sponged the petals & leaves with inks and used stickles on the stamens in the center of the flower. I used a CB embossing folder for the layered square.
The finished card is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2. I would love to know what you think of this one & how many cards you made yesterday. I bet you made more than me!
