Chateau Gate Collection Release

Welcome everyone to our January release with Heartfelt Creations.  Wait until you see what we got for you today.
The Chateau Gate Collection is "magnificent" and the intricate detail in each of the designs is absolutely beautiful. This collection is very versatile and you will be able to create projects for the men in your life, invites, graduations, love, congrats and so many more!  This collection features 9 PreCut Stamp Sets and one beautiful new exclusive Spellbinders die designed for Heartfelt Creations.

Leave a comment on the HC blog by January 17 to be eligible to win the entire release valued at $174.90. The winner will be announced on January 18 on the HC Blog.

Here is the card I made using some of these gorgeous new stamps and coordinating die.  I stamped all my images on watercolor paper and colored everything with watercolor and Inktense pencils.
For the doorway I wanted lots of dimension, so I stamped the image 3 times, cut  all the different pieces for each layer and adhered with pop dots.  For the doors I  stamped the image on clear cardstock with black StazOn ink.
Here is another close up of the door, you can see the dimension better here.
And here is a diagram of the 3 images I stamped, the red areas on each image represent the area I cut out and did not need for each layer.
If you find your self with some extra time, hop over to the HC Blog and take a peak at all the gorgeous projects the rest of the DT has created this week.  Thank you so much for stopping by and don't forget to comment for a chance to win the complete collection.  Good Luck!!!!
