Heartfelt Creations Wednesday Inspirations...."Make new friends but keep the old one is silver and the other gold"

It is that time of year when Heartfelt Creations has to select a few of their stamp sets and dies and move them to **Limited Edition** status.  These stamps, dies and paper collection will be available  thru 12/31/13.  Look over the **Limited Edition** selections and put the ones you can not  do with out on your wish list.   I have a few that are on  mine too. Today I used the HCPC 3486 Organic Fillers PreCut Set and HCPC 3485 Ornamental Raspberries PreCut Set along with the coordinating die HCD724 Classic Editions Die which is not a Limited Edition Die.

Heartfelt Creations  stamp set HCPC 3486 Organic Fillers PreCut Set is so versatile. The Berry Cluster could be an orange bittersweet, goose berries, currants and other berries with your imagination.  The Pomegranate could be a rose hip, goose berry or start of a tree fruit. The Stem Spray is a great filler green to any arrangement.  Also included in the set is a nice plump Raspberry which could be a blackberry, salmon berry or yellow raspberry. 

I just feel so good when I can get more then one use out of a stamp and that happens when I just take  the time to look  into the beauty of nature that surrounds me.

When I looked at the lace tree die it reminded me of my Grandmothers tatting. I incorporated the lace and holly behind  the sugary candy canes and set a glistening poinsettia on top. A slightly vintage look here.
 


The Frosty Blanket Paper Collection worked excellent for the mat and the holly leaves.
