Classic Christmas Collection by Heartfelt Creations

Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday and Heartfelt Creations.  I want to share with you the beautiful new collection from Heartfelt Creations releasing today, the Classic Christmas Collection, features 6 new precut stamp sets that coordinate with the Heirloom Ornaments 2011 and the Labels Seven Spellbinders dies. The classic images in this collection are perfect "not only" for your Christmas projects but very versatile and you will find yourself using them throughout the entire year! 

Leave a comment on the Heartfelt Creations blog by October 18 for a chance to win the entire release valued at $89.99.

For my card I used this beautiful image from the "Nativity Scene" set, I stamped the image on watercolor paper with brown StazOn and colored with the walnut stain distress re-inker.  I went ahead and changed the background patterned papers just a bit, I took the music sheet image from the "Book Frame 1" set and stamped it all over the paper with brown StazOn ink.  I also used the beautiful "Lace Border" die to add more detail to the design.
Here is a closeup of the image, I added a touch of Stickles to the star.  The sentiment is from the "Shepherd Scene" set.
The poinsettia I made with the small stamp from the "Petite Poinsettia" set and cut with the coordinating die from the "Layered Poinsettia" die set.  For the leaves I used one of the small dies from "Holly/Snowflake" die set.
Make sure to stop by the HFC Blog and take a peek at all the gorgeous projects by the DT.  Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
