Heartfelt Stamps, Dies, and Wishes for 2011!

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope the new year brings you all the very best of everything!
I made these thank-you cards after Christmas but waited to post them until the recipients received them. I actually won these Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies from Scrap-Mart's first blog hop and I was thrilled to say the least! These were the first Heartfelt Creations items to be added to my fun collection of stamps and dies! I think I made these cards the same afternoon the prize package arrived in the mail! LOL I used a Sissix embossing folder and some SU! oval punches for the sentiments. Each was done using scraps of cardstock and the centers were embossed with silver or gold embossing powder. A little bow made of gold or silver cording was the finishing touch.
Again, a heartfelt Happy New Year wish for all of my readers and friends in 2011. May it be your best year ever!

What beautiful thank-you cards and that was really a great win from Scrap-Mart's blog hop. You made very good use of the stamps and dies.
I am certainly needing that Sizzix embossing makes such a wonderful background. Happy 2011, Carol!!!

Beautiful cards! I just love that embossing folder. When I used the panels you gave me, I had a few people ask me where they could get it, too.
