Hello Blogger's,

Here in Sydney we're enjoying some beautiful sunshine......It's amazing how good it makes you feel!

I've a couple more cards to share made with Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies.  The first is a little shaped easel using one of the smaller images and coloured with Prisma's and OMS.

4.25 inches.

1.     Stamp the Poinsettia Bells & Bows image to white card using tuxedo black ink.  Cut using the 2nd largest circle die from Spellbinders Large circles. Colour with Prisma’s and OMS. Add the tiny red gems with Dries Clear adhesive. 
2.     Die cut the scalloped circle from red card then add the coloured image to the front with foam dots.
3.     Die cut one large blossom (Spellbinders Blossom 3) from the shabby green gingham card.  Cut one more from the same card but this time fold the card so you are cutting two shapes that are connected at the top. The top shape is folded forward ready for the completed card front to be added.
4.     Using distress ink peeled paint die a length of seam binding. When this is dry wrap it round the bottom half of the single blossom shape. Tie in a bow to the left side.
5.     Using Zip Dry glue add the coloured image and red scalloped card to the front of the single blossom die.  The completed card front is now glued to the folded forward section of the easel.
6.     Punch a scalloped circle and stamp the sentiment in tuxedo black ink. Sponge the edges with scattered straw distress ink and add a tiny red gem to each scallop.
7.     From red card die cut and emboss the round fancy tag from Fleur De Lis Accents.  Pop the sentiment to the centre of the tag using foam dots.
8.     Use Zip Dry glue to add the fancy tag to the base of the easel. The popped up sentiment holds the easel open.
