Heartfelt Creations Design Team Alumni Blog Hop

Good morning!  Happy Tuesday!  It's the last Tuesday of the month which means it's time for another Heartfelt Creations Design Team Alumni blog hop!  Each month, several former Heartfelt Creations designers get together and share projects made with some our our favorite Heartfelt Creations products.  If you arrived here from Olga's blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you should head over and hop from there, because Olga is the first stop on the hop and you wouldn't want to miss her gorgeous creation.

Here is my card for the hop:


I kept my design simple so I could showcase the beautiful iris.  I started with a card base of SU Eggplant Envy and layered with a panel of Cryogen White Iridescent that was embossed with a Sizzix Ornate Frames embossing folder.  I stamped the oval-framed iris from HCPC 3371 Dutch Iris Oval PreCut Set onto Cryogen White with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic markers.  I stamped the single iris from HCPC 3373 Dutch Iris Medley and also colored it with Copics.  I cut out and matted the oval with Spellbinders Petite Oval dies.  I cut out the single iris with HCD 7011 Decorative Dutch Iris Die and popped it up over the base iris.  I added a bit of Stickles to the flower center.  The sentiment is from HCPC 3389 Sentiments For Mom PreCut set.

Thanks for stopping by!  Your next stop on the hop is Selma'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 of the blogs and the lucky commenter will win a $25 gift certificate for the Heartfelt Creations store!  Your chance to comment ends on Friday, March 30 at midnight EDT and the winner will be announced on our blogs by noon EDT on Saturday, March 31.

If you get lost along the way, here is the whole line-up for the hop:
