Farewell to Heartfelt Creations

I can't write all the things I'd like to say here today or we'll all be crying in our coffee, so I'll get right to my Heartfelt Creations post instead.


I chose to play with embossing powder on this card image. I sprinkled embossing powders like I was baking since I combined several different colours and brands.


Initially, I used shabby blue embossing enamel and then I did the same with chestnut embossing powder by Zing!.


It makes the Wisemen look like they are traveling through mist. Love that look!


I heat set the powders by heating from underneath so the big, white pieces of enamel didn't get blown off course. I really love what the combined powders looks like with the star!


The left over mixed up powders were used on the little ornament so there was minimal waste. I really get bothered by waste. The final look of these 2 powders together really is quite spectacular.

I will miss the Heartfelt Creations design team and am sad to see it go. It's been a joy!

stamps; poinsettia ornament 2, wisemen ornament (heartfelt creations)
paper; turquoise hills (riddersholm designs), java, walnut creme (bazzill), splash pearlized paper (paper accents)
ink; versamark (tsukineko)
accessories; heirloom ornament 2011 (spellbinders), getaway dew drops (the robin's nest), ivory satin ribbons (offray), shabby blue embossing enamel (stampendous!), zing! chestnut embossing powder (american crafts), clear rhinestone (heidi swapp)
