Heartfelt Creations Poinsettia Ornament

Good morning friends, here we are, another wonderful Wednesday, and with Wednesday comes a project featuring the beautiful images from Heartfelt Creations.  Today I have an ornament I made with some of the new images from the "Christmas Cheer" Collection released last week.  I used the image from the "Poinsettia Ornament 1" set, stamped twice and heat embossed with fine detail gold embossing powder.  This photo shows the front of the ornament. 
And here is the back of the ornament.  I didn't want it to be completely flat, so I placed some pop dots in the center of the ornament and adhered them together.
I love the embossed background design, after I embossed the gold I covered the white area with iridescent medium, it added a real pretty sparkle to the white areas.
I stamped three of the "Petite Poinsettia" images on watercolor paper, heat embossed and colored with watercolor paints, cut with the coordinating dies and shaped slightly with embossing tools.
My final touch, some pretty and sparkly beads and gold findings for a little dangle.
Well, that's it for today, hope you liked my project, please make sure to stop by the HFC Blog, you will love all the inspiration there.  Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.

  6. I saw this on the Heartfelt blog and just had to visit you. This ornament is lovely. I definitely plan to case it. I fell in love with the stamp set and it is on the top of my list. Can't wait until November and the stamp show in Mesa, AZ.

    Well done.
