Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop

Today a few of us Alumni from the Heartfelt Creations design team are bringing to you a quick and festive blog hop.  If you are following the blog hop, you will have arrived here from Carla's website, and the next stop along the way is at Tesa's.  There are only 6 stops, and a chance for one of you leaving a comment on one of our blogs to win a $25 gift certificate to Heartfelt Creations.  I hope you'll follow along :-)


I had a ton of fun making this tag, using a variety of images from Heartfelt Creations.  I started by stamping the Shepherd Scene in the bottom of the card, using Black Soot Distress Ink.  Then I masked it, and stamped the Town of Bethlehem music image overtop, using Vintage Sepia Versafine.  Then I sprayed the whole thing with Tattered Angels glimmer mist in a Walnut Gold, and heat set.  Next, I used my Stamping Up watercolour crayons to add a bit of colour to the Shepherd Scene.  I followed that by stamping on the Elegant Holly Swirls, in Espresso Adirondak ink, and then colouring the leaves and berry's with copics, and adding glitter to the swirls with a Spica pen, and white centres to the berry's with a white gel pen.  The sentiment Peace on Earth was from another HC set and stamped in Black Soot, and then overlaid with Spica glitter pen.  Dazzling Diamonds Stickles was added to the star, and Galaxy Gold Brilliance and Gingerbread Versamagic as applied to the edges with a sponge.

Then I added some ribbon, a bell (recycled from a chocolate bunny's neck!) and some foliage and Berry's made out of Robins Nest Dew Drops.

Hopefully this gives you some ideas and inspiration of a fun holiday project, you could even start now to get ready for next year!

Back to the blog hop details, as a recap, below is a list of the blog hop participants.  Visit each one and leave a comment to increase your chance to win the $25 gift certificate to Heartfelt Creations.  Good luck!!
