Heartfelt Creations May Alumni Hop

I was so impressed with this month's graphic! I can't believe this is paper!

Okay, so this month is a completely out-of-the-box HFC card.  It so doesn't look like even what I make - let alone any other designer out there [that uses HFC products]. All that said, I was thrilled with how my card turned out!  

First of all, I used the Summer Wreath Accents Cling Stamps - I just stamped them, and colored in with Copics. Then, I stamped a sentiment from Just For You Sentiments on vellum, and attached it to the panel.

I felt it needed a little something so I used [the new to me] trick of using dies to cut out images from the designer papers HFC makes.  Seriously, I have been with HFC for YEARS! YEARS, I tell ya - and I never knew this about the paper with coordinating dies! [Good grief - but awesome I learned it!] I love the look of the branches from the Seasonal Wreath Paper Collection, and the matching dies are from the Summer Wreath Accents Dies!  So, the out-of-the-box status?  No flowers, no layers - not elaborate.  But still, I adore this card :)

This card is lovely! Bees are very popular right now. I'm not a fan of vellum, but I like it on this particular card.

This is so much fun! First, I adore the circle of hearts! The warm color scheme with the little, fat bees takes me right to summer. Your card is the perfect inspiration for me to get crafting this morning. Lovely work, Vicki!

I love stepping out of the box also! YOU did a FANTASTIC job of it! This came out beautifully! Sometimes it is nice just to do something "different" to get your mojo moving in a total different direction! Love it again!

Such a "happy" card with these fabulous bees, hearts and that it is clever to make them around a wreath! You are so imaginative and clever to create so much beauty!
