Hi everyone!  Welcome to Wednesday and Heartfelt Creations New Release – Celebrate the Season!

The time has come to once again “Celebrate the Season” with Heartfelt Creations!  Non-traditional in color, this new holiday themed collection showcases an assortment of exceptional winter hues…shades of teals, pinks, greens and violets resembling the northern lights, whites as crisp as freshly fallen snow and ice blues mimicking frozen ponds beneath the blades of gently gliding ice skates.  Four fanciful cling stamp sets filled with old fashioned themed illustrations of ornate sleighs, wooden gates, gifts, skates, mittens, and simple wreaths filled with poinsettias and greenery, along with an assortment of charming sentiments will bring feelings of nostalgia from Christmas past to all of your crafty creations while being paired with the contemporary color palette of Christmas present.  Three coordinating sets of dies will have you creating your very own dimensional embellishments perfect for holiday cards, layouts and altered art pieces.  Join us as we “Celebrate the Season” and get an early start to all of our holiday themed creating.

Instructions:

Start by making your bendi fold card out of White card stock and layering it with a piece of designer paper cut from the Celebrate the Season Paper Collection.  For a tutorial on how to make a bendi fold card click here.

Now it’s time to decorate the card!  Starting with the 2 front panels, the Festive Gate Cling Stamp Set was stamped twice on White cardstock with Archival Ink Watering Can and cut with the matching die.  After they were die cut they were colored with Teal Zeal and Vintage Photo before accenting with a combination of Sparkle Shimmer Spritz and Frantage Shaved Ice.  Finally for a layered look, the fence for the front panel was trimmed to make it a little shorter before attaching them as shown.  The Botanic Window Die was cut several times in White Card Stock for strength before topping it with a die cut using paper from the Celebrate the Season Paper Collection and attaching it to the back panel as shown.  The Wreath and Garland were stamped on White cardstock with Archival Ink Watering Can and cut with the matching die.  After they were die cut they were colored with Distressed Markers before attaching them as shown.  The Poinsettia flowers were stamped on White cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with white Embossing Powder and cut with the matching die.  The poinsettia flowers were colored with Dusty Concord ink before shaping the flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and finishing with Silver Micro Beads and attached as shown.  To finish off the card stamp the sentiment on White Card Stock using Archival Ink Watering Can and cut with the Cut Mat Create 1B Die and colored with Teal Zeal.

Thanks so much for your visit.  Have a wonderful day!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
