HC Christmas Cheer collection

Today is the release of the new Heartfelt Creations Christmas Cheer collection.  It is absolutely fabulous, I'll be making christmas cards with these images for weeks (and surely years) to come!  I made many cards with it this past week, and today I'll share with you three of them.  To see more ideas check out the HC Blog.

Here's a vintage one with a beautiful angel:

Products Used on This Project 
Other Products used: Cuttlebug embossing folder "Holly Ribbons", Gold Encore Ink, Spica pens, Glossy accents, Stickles, Ribbon, Versafine ink. Spellbinders Lacey Ovals Spellbinders Ovals
Card size is 5.75 x 5.75 Emboss brown background layer, then rub gold ink on it, tie ribbon around it, and attach to card base.  Stamp background stamp on sahara sand rectangle layer, and then stamp swirly holly leaves over it (masking away the Holy Night sentiment), and then distress with scissors and ink, and then adhere to card.  Cut out lacey oval, add dots of red stickler between each scallop and set aside to dry.  Stamp angel on sahara sand card stock, use glitter pen to add accents, and then also add stickler.  Adhere to lacey oval with pop up dots, and then attach that to the card using more pop up dots.  Stamp the sentiment, cut out, colour the words with a red glitter pen, and then distress with ink and scissors.  Adhere overlapping ribbon using glue dots.


Here's a silver and blue one with embossing featuring a christmas dove - one of my DH's favourites:

Stamp background stamp using versamark on dark blue card stock and emboss with silver embossing powder.  Add white craft ink along edges.  Tie white ribbon around with bow.  Glue on dew drops using Zip Dry.  Adhere this layer to a base.  Stamp the nest in versamark on white card stock and emboss with silver embossing powder, cut out and adhere to card with pop up dots.  Use grey Copic pen to add some shading.  Stamp dove image on white card stock with black ink and cut out with coordinating die cut.  Add accents with yellow and blue copies, then cover the whole dove with versamark, and then emboss with clear embossing powder that has sprinkles in it.  Adhere this above the nest with another layer of pop up dots.
