Heartfelt Creations Wednesday...Introducing the Winter's Eve Collection!

Celebrate the more simple side of the holiday season, and add a touch of nostalgia and wonder to all of your holiday themed greeting cards, scrapbook layouts and altered art pieces with the new Winter’s Eve Collection by Heartfelt Creations. Reminisce Christmas blessings from years gone by with a tranquil collection featuring an array of illustrations bringing back memories of silent nights by candlelight, choir voices resonating from the little church in the wildwood, woodland creatures foraging for food beneath the glistening snow, windows illuminated with the soft glow of a warming fireplace, and beautifully decorated Christmas trees ready to engage the imagination and excitement of little boys and girls eager to see what lies beneath them on Christmas morning! A charming and peaceful paper collection delivering a color palette of icy blues, pine greens, poinsettia pinks, berry reds and frosty whites filled with decorative elements including delicate swirls, subtle checks, bold stripes, dainty florals and lace like accents will whisk you away to a peaceful winter wonderland overwhelming your heart with the comfort and joy of the season! Three wintry themed cling stamp sets along with coordinating dies bring a further touch of simplicity to the season with bouquets of petite flowers and foliage, an old fashioned sled and a window frame with dimensional box ideal for creating warm and inviting scenes featuring a beautifully illustrated candle arrangement, Christmas tree or glowing fireplace. Three intricate and ornamental dies lend themselves beautifully to creating breathtaking decorative die cuts for accenting all of your winter wishes. Come along with us as we set the scene for a tranquil winter’s eve and a happy holiday season!

Instructions:  My card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2.  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection.  I edged it with red ink.  Next stamp cutout and decorate the window and assemble and glue together (I used Toffee Crunch Ink).  Next I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it then glued it behind the window.  Stamp in Toffee Crunch, color, cut out and shape the flowers. Add glitter, Prills and Frosting Powder to highlight these.  When these are dry, glue inside the window box.  Attach the window to the card front and your card is finished.

Other Supplies:  Red and White Cardstock, Dimensional Tape, Angel Pink London Fog and Dandelion Memento Inks, Vintage Photo, Tumbled Glass and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks, Cotton Ball, ColorBox Mixed Media Ink in White

Instructions: My card size is 5 X 7.  Make card base out of white cardstock and set aside.  Cut a piece of red cardstock to be the next layer.  I used an embossing folder called Bricked and ran the red cardstock through my machine.  Next I took a sponge and added the white ink here and there on the red embossed area to make the brick look a bit worn.  Stamp and  cut out the window frame and the candle element.  I used Memento inks and the Dove Blender pen to color the candle and greenery then I used dimensional tape to adhere it to the base of the window.  Next I stamped and colored the angel and tree and colored them using various inks and the Dove Blender Pen.  I cut it out to make it fit behind the window frame and then I used my cotton ball and Tumbled Glass ink to lightly add color to the white cardstock around the image.  I just wanted it to have a bit of color and not be a stark white.  Now cut out the decorative piece to go over the window top and glue it behind the window.  Now you are ready to glue the window to the front of the card.  Next stamp, color and cut out the sled and use dimensional tape to adhere it to the card front.  Now just find a sentiment on the paper and cut it out to go on the card front.  I rounded the corners and used some ink to distress the edges.  Used some more dimensional tape and adhere the sentiment to the card front.

Glenda, your cards are so beautiful as they always are! I love the window box looking into the house, looks like a cozy setting and your little girl card is so sweet!

Leslie Miller said...

Wow, a new collection already and it looks so pretty judging by your cards. You have a way with these Heartfelt stamps. You were made for each other. Love the window idea in this collection. The stamps dress up the outside of the window and the window gives a peek at the pretty scenes inside. I really like the die cut above the window of the second card. I see lots more fabulous Christmas cards in your future!

I always wish I had a flower box that looked that good. Just beautiful. No way could I do any Christmas cards...but that tiny little angel is precious.
