wednesday...Heartfelt Creations

Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations post. Today I want to share a card that I made using the new The Chateau Gate Collection stamps.

(dimensions: 4.25”x5.5”)
Heartfelt Creations:

Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Antique Linen, Vintage Photo), Ranger Liquid Peals (White opal), StazOn Archival Ink (Timber Brown, Jet Black), Prismacolors Pencils, Mona Lisa OMS, Kaisercraft Rhinestones (Gold), crystal glitter, sewing machine, pop dots

I colored my stamped images with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I left the card little more plain than normal so you can see my coloring. These stamps are amazing and perfect for coloring. I just enjoyed myself coloring like I used to do back in high school!

Here's a close up of the open gate:

and here's a close up of the inside of the card:

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Stamp the Chateau Gateway Precut Set twice on cream cardstock. Color them in using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress inks, and Prismacolor pencils with OMS to blend the colors. Distress the edges of the first image and adhere to a 4.25”x5.5” cream colored card base. Cut out the gate from the second image and cut open the door. Stamp the Doorway Trimmings Precut Set scene on cream cardstock and color with Prismacolor pencils and OMS to blend the colors. Cut out and place this image between the first and second gateway images. Use pop dots to raise the cut out gate and layer on top of the colored scene image. Die cut a few vines from the Decorative Chateau Gate Die. Stamp and cut out a few red flowers from the Flirty Fleurs Precut Set and place the vines and flowers around the gate. Stamp the sentiment and add to the top left side of the card. Add 3 rhinestones on the bottom left side of the sentiment.

Stamp directly onto the card base the Flirty Fleurs Precut Set image twice without reinking the stamp on the corner of the card. On red cardstock, stamp the sentiment and glue onto an upside down brown Decorative Chateau Gate Die window die cut. Adhere this to the left side of the card.
