Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!!!!

"I'm dreaming of a white Christmas,
 Just like the ones I used to know
 Where tree tops glisten
 And children listen
 To hear sleigh bells in the snow..."
~ Irving Berlin

This week at Heartfelt Creations we are working with our beautiful exclusive Limited Edition Stamp Sets. There are so many beautiful sets to choose from and many of them will be retiring. If you have been putting off grabbing these now would be the time! You wouldn't want to miss out on adding them to your collection.

I worked with the elegant Regal Poinsettia Collections I & II for this layout. I absolutely loved them!
To achieve the flexibility I wanted on these flowers I cut the under leaves off. I wanted to be able to shape each petal. I used a white embossing powder to create a raised effect with my stamping. I then covered the flowers in Pearl Glimmer Mist. This is my favorite mist. Although I adore all the actual colors the pearl adds a gorgeous shimmer without changing the color off your project.


I cut the holly leaves from the set too and embossed them with silver embossing powder, again using Pearl Glimmer Mist for shimmer!
I could do without using the new Artistic Gatefold Collection Die cut. The ones I used on this layout are the Layered Elegant Swirl Die and the Layered Elegant Posy Die. Just Beautiful!
I used a snowflake punch to create the centers of my flowers. Topping it off with pearls and rhinestones. Let's not forget my newest Martha Stewart punch---- Skyland Snowflake!

Make sure you stop by the Heartfelt Creations blog today. The designers have done so many inspirational and beautiful projects with the stamps this week.
