Heartfelt Creations Gateway To The Seasons New Release

Hello and welcome here!! This week Heartfelt Creations has a New Release called Gateway To The Seasons!!  Here is the information from HC on Gateway To The Seasons:

 We are pleased to introduce the Gateway To The Seasons Collection.  The Ornate Gate Die is adorned with a flourishing design and a large, exotic accent piece.  Lace, gazebos, birdhouses, gardens, backyards, a fall scene, a winter home and sentiment stamps will add joy to your cards and a smile to your face.  These scenes and sentiments will complete your stamp collection.  The Daphne paper pack is loaded with lacy Victorian patterns in soft pink, cream and greens accented with red, green and brown.  Classic Heartfelt Creations images combined with stripes, diamonds and vintage type, tags and journaling blocks create a collection you will treasure forever!  Leave a comment on the Heartfelt Creations blog by June 18th and you will be eligible to win the entire release valued a $150.00.

I made 2 cards to showcase this New Release so be sure to scroll all the way down to view both creations.

Card Size:  4.5" x 6"
I used the beautiful Ornate Gateway Die, and I used a the center portion of the flourish accent piece for my corners.  The soft pink patterned paper is from the Daphne 12x12 Collection.  I didn't want to take away from the gate so I kept my card fairly simple.

The gate pieces open to reveal the All Seasons Gazebo stamp that I coloured with Copic Markers.

 Copics Used:
Gazebo - N7, C0, C1
Roof - N5, N7
Trees - G82, G85, E23
Big Leaf Plant on left - G20, G21
Low Bushes with blue flower - YG13, B93
Hostas - YG03, YG17
Grass - G20, G21
Pink Flowers - RV11, R56
Purple Flowers - RV63, YG11
Striped Plants on right - Y32, G82, G85
Sky - BG0000

I love decorating the inside of my cards, I used the Spring Season stamp and stamped it with Tattered Rose Distress Ink, I then stamped the bucket of flowers with Black Memento ink onto a separate piece of white CS, I coloured it with Copics Markers, fussy cut it and attached it to the inside of my card.  I also used the All Seasons Sentiments to add the word 'Blessings', also stamped on a separate piece of white CS and fussy cut.  Copics Used:  W1, W3, W5, R01, G20, G21, YG67, E33.

 I totally lifted this awesome stained glass window idea from the lovely Dina over at Mama Dini's Stamperia.  I didn't have plans to do stained glass until I saw the awesome HC Ornate Gateway Die.

I used HC Clear CS and Copic Markers to achieve the stained glass look. I attached the clear CS to the back of the gates, and then coloured on the back of the clear CS with Copics...I sort of dabbed the colour on, rather than coloured it on, to achieve the textured glass look.

 Copics Used:
RV13, RV66, R35, BG57, B37

The All Seasons Gazebo stamp comes with a beautiful lace stamp and I used that for the inside of my card.

Recipe:  HC Die-Ornate Gateway, HC SS-All Seasons Gazebo Precut Set, HC Clear CS, Spellbinders Fancy Lattice, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Lagoon, Rhinestones, Foam Squares, Celebrate It 3/8" White Grosgrain Ribbon, Copic Markers.

Your coloring is just so beautiful...I feel as though I could just walk through that gate and sit down to drink in all the beauty. I love seeing the details here. Wonderful bow treatment, too!

So, so beautiful. It's one of those special cards we receive and end up displaying for months and months because it's a beautiful piece of art that we don't get tired of looking at. Thanks for sharing your talent. :-) -B
