Welcome to the New Life Collection!

Today there is a fabulous new collection being released by Heartfelt Creations, just in time for us to start work on our Easter projects.  Here are a couple of my creations, I hope you'll check out the Heartfelt Creations Blog and see what the rest of the design team has made.

Here is the candle.  For both this and the Spring Up card below I used tutorials found in the resources section at Splitcoast Stampers.

Instruction for Candle:
Stamp 3 images of cross on tissue paper using black StazOn ink.  Allow to dry, then use gold coloured glitter pen to accent.  Cut around each one and lightly adhere the tissue paper to the candle.  Wrap ribbon around bottom.  Wrap wax paper all around the outside of the candle on top of the items adhered to it, then use heat gun all around until the tissue paper has been soaked in.  Remove wax paper.

Instructions for card:
Prepare Spring Up Card base using tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers.   Stamp image of cross on white cardstock that has been precut to fit on to face of Spring Up Card.  Use VersaMark ink and gold embossing powder and heat set.  Distress edges and add light amounts of ink using sponge around the edges.  Adhere to base card.
Stamp small coordinating posy stamp on velum cardstock several times using VersaMark ink and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.  Cut out using coordinating die.  Add one in the centre of the cross overtop of the flower there, using a pop up dot, and add a pearl over top.  Stamp sentiment on white card stock using black ink and cut out, then adhere with pop up dots on base as shown in photo.  Use the extra die cut velum flowers to decorate as shown in photo.

I think this pair would make a great Easter gift!
