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 of our favorite Heartfelt Creations products.  If you arrived here from Olga's fantastic blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you'll want to head back and hop from there since Olga is the first stop on the hop and you definitely won't want to miss her gorgeous creation!

Here is my card for the hop:


I started with a card base of SU Not Quite Navy and layered with patterned paper from the Kaisercraft Miss Nelly 6.5 x 6.5 pad.  I cut the ornate window frame from Cryogen White with HCD 708 Decorative Window Scene Die.  I stamped the cardinal and rose image from HCPC 3382 Magnificent Cardinal Rose set with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White.  I also stamped another large cardinal from HCPC 3353 Cardinal Family set.  I colored all the images with Copic markers.  I cut out the single cardinal with a HCD 706 Cardinal Family Die and popped it up on foam tape over the base image.  I popped the whole thing up on the Window Scene frame.  I added the sentiment from the HCPC 3353 Cardinal Posy Branch set and that was it.

Thanks for stopping by!  Your next stop on the hop is Tesa's wonderful blog.  Be sure to leave a comment on every blog as you hop because one comment will be chosen at random from one of the blogs and the lucky commenter will win a $25 gift certificate for the Heartfelt Creations store!  You have until Friday, April 27 at midnight EDT to add your comment.  The winner will be announced on our blogs by noon on Saturday, April 28.

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