Heartfelt Creations - Shining Star and Oh Christmas Tree

Today I want to show you a couple of cards I made for Heartfelt Creations.  You can visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to get the full instructions on how to make these cards, as well as see some of the other gorgeous work done by the Design Team.  Also, at the end of this post is a special announcement that you are going to want to see!

This first card uses the Shepherd Scene stamp set which is so beautiful.  I wanted to keep it simple and highlight the scene so I stamped the image in brown ink.  I embossed the sentiment in gold and for the flourishes on at either end of the tag, I painted with a gold paint pen.  I also used the paint pen and a straight edge to go around the edges of my card.  I wanted to highlight the star so I added glitter and a bit of bling.  I also added glitter to the path leading to the Bethlehem.  You will be able to see this if you click on the picture to the left.

This second card uses one of my favorite stamp sets.  As you can see, I used the same sentiment but you get a completely different feel with this card.

To achieve the winter wood look, I ran Kraft cardstock though the cuttlebug with the Woodgrain impression plate from PTI and then lightly sponged white pigment ink over it.  After I stamped the tree, I added glitter to it which was very hard to photograph.  You may be able to see it better if you enlarge my close-up.

I have one more to show you using this same stamp set.  This time, I was playing around with the concept of depth perception so I stamped a portion of the large tree from this set off the left side of my cardstock and then stamped the trio so that it looks further away.  Again, I added glitter to the trees and I also used my Sakura clear glitter gel pen to outline the nestabilities frame.

I entered this card into the Winter Scene challenge for the Winter Wonderland VSN on Splitcoast this past weekend.
