Semifinalists for Heartfelt Creations


Oh my goodness...

I just received notice that Heartfelt Creations has chosen me as one of their semifinalists for their 2017 design team call. I submitted 3 projects along with step by step instructions and the top 20 were just announced on the Heartfelt Creations Blog.

I am super EXCITED and HONORED to even be considered. I am constantly looking for ways to grow as an artist and I know that working with Heartfelt Creations would allow me to grow even more. Thank you Heartfelt for allowing me to move forward in this journey.

What's the next step you ask??? To make it to the finals all I need for you all to do is VOTE. They are asking for YOU to choose your top 5 choices to move to the finals. So please look over everyone's projects and vote for your top 5 favorite artists.  To view all the semifinalists visit the Heartfelt Creations blog. To vote please click HERE. You must vote for 5 different people to enter.

Here are the first of my three submitted projects.
 

With this card I have used the  Flowering Dogwood Collection for the stamping, Paper and the floral parts of my card. I also used the Botanical Window Die Set and the Fleur Borders and Pockets Die Set. For the coloring medium on the chapel I used Copic Markers.

 Here is a close up to show the details to the flowers.

For my second entry...


Fairystampland would not be complete without me using the Wildwood Cottage Collection. Coloring this project with my Copic markers was such a joy. The cottage itself is from the actual paper collection but I hand colored all the windows, doors, sign,  fence, flowers and the fairy and have them attached with foam tape to add dimension. This sweet little fairy scene was by far my favorite project to create. It is truly magical. See below for more photos.




For my third submission project...


I have combined the two collections (Flowering Dogwood Collection as well as the Wildwood Collection) to create this stunning card. The flowers are from the Flowering Dogwood Collection and they are all hand shaped, colored, and glittered. The stamped fairy is from the Wildwood Collection and is colored with Copic Markers. The Eyelet Oval Die set was used for the multi layer backdrop for this lovely floral fantasy. 


Thank you for stopping by and for considering me for your vote. I am blessed just to be a part of this process.
