Heartfelt Creations Magnificent Spruce Trees

Welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday. This is my first post as a Design Team member and I can't tell you how much fun I am having working with their dies and stamps. I feel so blessed to have been chosen for the team. A big thanks to my friend Cheryl Walker for encouraging me to apply!

Be sure to mark your calendar for Black Friday when Heartfelt Creation will be revealing their new release. It is awesome, you don't want to miss it.

This nice wide lacy die is awesome. I have no problem using my cuttlebug to cut this with. I just use a sheet of wax paper and the die slips off the paper like butter. I stamped the Magnificent Spruce Tree (the large tree stamp) three times to make my image with Peel Paint Distress ink and then applied stickles to the branches by tracing them with the tip of the bottle. I have been pulling out some older punches that haven't gotten any love and have used them. I forgot how beautiful the corner adorner can look. So who knows what else I'll pull out I haven't used in a while. It's fun to use your stuff!!! lol

For a list of supplies and directions on how to make this card, please visit the Heartfelt Creations blog where you can get all that information and see what all the other Design Team members have created for you this week.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow when I will post my Heartfelt Creations altered project. You don't want to miss it.

Be still, my heart. :) This is so exciting, being your first post as an HC DT member! I heard from Andrea what kind of goodies you all received, and I am just living vicariously through you both. :)

Your card is just so, so serene and lovely. It really takes my breath away! (but not in an asthma kind of way ;)
