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 Marsha's wonderful blog, you are in the right place. If not, you'll want to go Olga's blog and hop from there since Olga is the first stop on the hop and you definitely won't want to miss any of the team's gorgeous creations!


Here is my card for this month's hop:




I started with a card base of SU Chocolate Chip and layered with patterned paper from the Kaisercraft The Lake House 8x8 pad.  I really love the colors and patterns in these beautiful papers!  I went back to one of my favorite older Heartfelt Creations sets, HCPC 572 Clematis/Cottage PreCut Set.   I think this set is retired now, but you can check out all the gorgeous new collections at the Heartfelt Creations site here.  I stamped the image on Cryogen White and colored it with my Copics. I added a bit of Diamond Stickles to the flower centers for a little shimmer.  The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations Mini Messages Cursive, which may also be retired now.  Sorry about that.  A May Arts silk bow and a few adhesive pearls from my stash finished my card.


Thanks for stopping by! Your next stop on the hop is Tesa's fantastic 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, August 3rd at midnight EDT to add your comment.  The winner will be announced on our blogs by noon on Saturday, August 4th.


If you get lost along the way, here is the whole line-up for the hop:
Olga  
Kerry 
Lisa 
Marsha 
Carla (you are here)
Tesa  
Linda

Have a great day and see you soon!
