Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop

Hi all!
It’s the last Tuesday of the month so it’s time for the July Heartfelt Creations alumni blog hop. We have seven participating blogs and to win the prize of a $25 Gift Certificate from Heartfelt Creations  you want to visit them all and leave comments. One winner will be drawn from one of the blogs randomly. The hop is open until Friday August 3rd and the winner will be announced on Saturday 4th.
Here is the blog hop list
Tesa – that’s me!

And here are my cards. :)
First up is an encouragement card with amazing Decorative Layered Basket Die as main focus! 

To Encourage You
 
The flowers are from the Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set and cut out with the coordinated Posy Patch Die. The sentiment is from Inspire Me Sentiments PreCut Set. All papers are beautiful MME, Miss Caroline. 

When I had my scrap block a while back I got some really good advise about how to get over it. One was a lift challenge from Nick. So, when I got home from our vacation I sat down, did some serious shopping and lifted THIS lovely card and the block was over. Thank you!!! 

Next up is an all white. I did it for the DTGD festivities over at SCS. 

Vitt heartfelt 1

I painted the background with white gesso and clear embossed the Large Elegant Word Background PreCut Set. Then I added the flourish from the Bella Rose Die with pop dots. Finally I made the flower by layering clear embossed flowers from the Flora Grande 2 PreCut Set cut out with the Blossoms 3 Nestabilities.

To finish the hop continue to amazing LINDA who will have something beautiful in store for you!

Thanks for playing with us!
