Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop

Goof morning!  Happy Tuesday!  It's the last Tuesday of the month and that means it's time for another Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog hop.  Every month, a group of former Heartfelt Creations designers gets together to share projects made with some of our favorite Heartfelt Creations products.  If you arrived here from Selma's blog, then you are in the right place.  If not, you'll want to head over to Olga's blog and start from the beginning, so you don't miss any of the team's gorgeous creations!

Here is my card for the hop:


I started with a card base of GKD Innocent Pink and layered with a Cheery Lynn Lattice #2 Frame diecut.  My next layer is a  Cheery Lynn Polynesian Sails Oval.  On top of the that, I layered two Spellbinders Petite Ovals in Innocent Pink and Layering Weight White.  The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3319 Simple Filler Stems set.  I next added a Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish diecut.  I created my flowers roughly  following my former HC teammate, Glenda's, tutorial here.  Briefly, I stamped three sets of flowers from HCPC 3406 Botanical Floral 1 and HCPC 3407 Botanical Florals 2 with SU Pink Pirouette onto Innocent Pink CS and cut them out with Spellbinders Rose Creations Shapeabilities.  I sponged them all lightly with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose Distress Ink.  After burnishing and shaping the petals with a stylus, I assembled them with Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue and arranged them around the sentiment panel to finish my card.

Your next stop on the hop is Marsha's wonderful blog.  Be sure to leave a comment on every blog as you are hopping, because one comment will be chosen at random from all the blogs and the lucky commenter will win a $25 gift certificate to the Heartfelt Creations store!  Your chance to comment closes at midnight, Friday, March 2 EST and the winner will be announced on Saturday, March 3 at Noon EST.

In case you get lost, here is the full line-up:
Olga Jewell
Selma Stevenson
Carla Suto (you are here)
Marsha Sanderlin
Clare Curcio
Linda Payne

I am also entering my card in the following challenges: Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge (lots of layers, pink and white, a rectangle and an oval shape, dimensional flowers), Our Creative Corner Challenge (use element(s) that extends outside the edges of card) and Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge #17 (lots of layers).

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a fantastic day!
