warm and cozy *Heartfelt Creations* and *SOUS*

I love this lamp post! Papers are from Wassail by Basic Grey.

The sentiment is from the Yuletide Sentiments PreCut Set. The metal pin is by Tim Holtz and the ribbon is from Michael's.

I used Versamark ink and P.K. Glitz embossing powder with the Holiday Haven flourish stamp.

I was inspired by fellow DT member Marisa for coloring this light.

I used Loew-Cornell pencils to color this lamp. I still love the raw look of these pencils!

Vintage Flower Pot *Heartfelt Creations*

The Vintage Floret release is a beautiful collection of ancient luxury. This month’s paper release is similar to the wallpaper of a quaint Parisian cafĂ©. The textured flower stamps add a quiet delicacy to every project. The typography is a delightful combination of botanical growth and grandmother’s old typewriter stored away in the attic.
There are 5 new PreCut Stamp Sets, one 12x12 Paper Collection, and one beautiful new exclusive Spellbinders die designed for Heartfelt Creations. Leave a comment on the HC blog by 
October 16th and you will be eligible to 
win the entire release 
valued at $134.93. 

I love flower pots! I only wish my yard was full of flower pots. But, until I grow a green thumb, I will have to be satisfied with coloring them. 

I colored this image with Prismacolor pencils and blended with the Prismacolor Colorless Blender. The corners of the image piece is stamped with Tattered Collage. I used Versamark ink and topped with brown shimmer chalk by Pebbles.

I used Archival black ink to stamp these flowers. After die cutting, I sprayed them with Creme de Rouge Glimmer mist and inked the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
