HEARTFELT CREATIONS ALUMNI DESIGN TEAM - MAY BLOG HOP

Today is the last Tuesday of the month and that means it is time for Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Monthly Blog Hop.   I am excited to share with you  a card I created using the covered bridge image from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3526 - Natural Beauty PreCut Set that I colored with Copics.  I created a gatefold card and used Heartfelt Creations HCDP1 231 - Posy Patch Paper Collection.

I added  Art Glitter Elements in Spinich to the tree and  Robin's Nest Dewdrops in Mocha Trail for embellishments.  The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3524 - Butterfly and Bunny PreCut Set.

Candy Slabaugh  (that's me!)

MOUNTAIN SCENE CARD

Today I want to share with you a easel card that features a beautiful mountain scene from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3526 - Natural Beauty PreCut Set that I colored with Copics. 
 
MOUNTAIN SCENE CARD
To capture the reflection of the mountains in the water, I then turned the image upside down and colored the mountains identically only in a shade lighter of Copics and then after it was completely dry, I took my B10 (Note:  make sure your B10 is very wet) and with the broad end I took long single strokes over the scene to make it look like water.   I then went back and added a few highlights on the trees and mountains in the reflection where needed.  I was very happy with how this technique turned out.
 

I matted the scene on Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval Window Die and used Psalm 19:1 from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3312 - Uplifting Scriptures PreCut Set matted on Bazzill paper die cut with Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles.  To finish the card I added The Robin's Nest Dew Drops in Goldenberry.
 
Have a good Memorial Day weekend!

HC GARDEN POTS CARD

Today I want to share a card I made that represents what I have been doing all week -- working in my flower garden and filling my patio pots.  My oldest daughter Malinda graduates from high school in a few short weeks and I am busy getting the yard and patio ready for her Open House party.  We have had beautiful weather, so I have been taking advantage of the lovely warm Spring days and getting ready for the party. 
 
I used Heartfelt Creations Broken Cinder Blocks image colored with Copics and then I used the Tattered Blossoms flowers stamp, which I then diecut with the Tattered Blossoms Die to create 3D flowers.  Also I used Art Glitter Tailings Elements for the flower centers and Art Glitter Redland Elements for the dirt in the flower pot.
