I hope everyone is having a good week!  I am so ready for Spring so this week I made a butterfly door hanger for my project for Heartfelt Creations.  I just bought a plain light colored wood door hanger at Wal-Mart and painted it with Viva Decor Walnut Brown Stamp Paint.  This was the first time I had used this product and I loved it.  It dries really quick to a beautiful metallic sparkle.  I embossed the "Life is Good" sentiment with Wow Embossing Glitter and I stamped the Heartfelt Creations butterfly and flower images on Cryogen White Paper, colored them with Copics and then detail cut them out and adhered them with Dries Clear Glue.  Really the picture here does not do this project justice!

This isn't a very good quality picture, but this is how it looks hanging on the door.  Definitely adds a Spring look to the house!


Well it is that time again for Heartfelt Creations to pick a new Design Team and you can participate in who joins the HC Design Team by voting for your favorite Semifinalist and who will continue from the current Design Team by voting for your favorite Designers.  So if you would like to see me continue on the HC Design Team please vote for me in the "favorite Designers" section.

  1. Beautiful door hanger!! Love the butterfly!

  2. Candy, a beautiful project! So glad I could click on the images to enlarge them as the details are beautiful! And all that fussy cutting! Whew! so the paint has texture, but still lets you stamp on it? That's great. I have not tried it yet. The shading, glitters and EP look very pretty. hugs, de
