Today is the last Tuesday of the month and that means it is time for Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Monthly Blog Hop.  You should have arrived here from Alissa Wells Blog.
I am pleased to share with you a masculine Birthday card I created using the mallard duck stamp from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3530 - Waters Edge PreCut Set and the paper is from Heartfelt Creations HCDP1 232 - Balmy Breeze Paper Collection. 

I colored the image with Copics  and added some Earth Flower Soft to the cattails.  I also stamped the seaweed image on the Balmy Breeze paper with Watermark Ink and then added Wow Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter and heat set it to add a little sparkle to the paper.
I stamped the cattails on a separate piece of Cryogen White Paper, colored them and cut them out and attached them with a pop dot for added dimension.
The designers participating this month are:

I distressed the flower pieces with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet to make my wreath pink.  Can you tell my favorite color is pink!   For added dimension I shaped each flower with a McGill Paper Blossom Tool Kit and Molding Mat.  For some added glitz I used Ranger Icicle Stickles, Tim Holtz Distress Stickles - Clear Rock Candy and Tim Holtz Distress Stickles - Clear Rock Candy Dry Glitter.  I also added a couple Want2Scrap LeCreme Pearls to the flower centers.

I am excited to announce that I have been asked to join the Craftwork Cards CANDi USA Design Team.  I actually have been using CANDi for a long time and being part of this team is a perfect fit for me!  If you are not familiar with Craftwork Cards, they are a company in the UK that manufacturers these wonderful little "legless" brads called CANDi that you adhere with mini foam dots called CANDi Fix.  They come in so many yummy colors and they are the perfect accent to all of your papercrafting projects.  I am looking forward to sharing my creations using CANDi with you!
Today I want to share with you a card I made using Damask - Afternoon Tea Candi and Silver Shadow Candi as embellishments.

The stamped image, sentiment and design paper is from Heartfelt Creations. I colored the image with Copics and die cut it with Spellbinders Labels One and then matted it on blue cardstock die cut with Spellbinders Decorative Labels One.

To coordinate the perfect Candi to my projects I love to mix and match Candi from different packages.  So on this card I used a blue Candi from the Damask - Afternoon Tea Candi package and a couple dark gray Candi from the Silver Shadow Candi Package.

Damask - Afternoon Tea Candi
Silver Shadow - Candi

I will be sharing more of my projects using Candi on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each Month. Have a great day!
