New Collection! Classic Rose

 Hi Friends!

A wonderful new collection has been released by Heartfelt Creations and it debuts today!  It's brimming with roses, rose buds, rose images, everything's coming up roses!! (Sorry, that was pretty bad LOL!).  And get ready - it's called "Classic Rose Collection!"  Ta Da!!  :)

The step by step instructions for the card I created are posted on the HC Blog this week!  I was going for the "rose gold" color with my roses using a pink-coral cardstock and gold embossing powder and Gold 3D stamp paint.  They came out a little more rosy than gold I think.

So, do pop on over to the HC Blog and you will be blown away by the amazing projects the Design Team has prepared with this beautiful collection!!  Those gals know their way around a rose!! Seriously!!  And, bonus, there's a "How To" video with Emma Lou to walk you through creating amazing 3-D roses!!  

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a blessed week everyone!!

Snow Kissed Card in a Box

Hello Again,

I have the pleasure of showcasing the newest release from Heartfelt Creations today, "Snow Kissed"! A perfect companion to last month's Celebrate the Season -- more dies, more stamps and a whole new color palette!
Bring out the softer side of old man winter in all of your projects with the new “Snow Kissed” Collection by Heartfelt Creations.  An exquisite blending of classic winter scenes depicting gentle snowfalls, candle lit windows, countryside sleigh rides mixed with a sprinkling of fun filled images of frosty snowmen delivers the perfect compilation of winter themed imagery for all of your holiday and chilly season creations.  This newest collection features three cling stamp sets revealing illustrations of towering pine trees and frosty snowmen ideal for creating spectacular winter scenes, a large gift tag perfect for adding that special handmade touch to all of your beautifully wrapped gifts, as well as a wide variety of snowflakes which when paired with the coordinating dies will allow you to build one of a kind dimensional flakes as realistic and individual as those in a gentle snowfall.  The charming paper collection showcases beautiful hues of cozy blues and rich pine greens accented with deep burgundies creating exquisite backdrops to showcase patterns of elegant snowflakes, windswept swirls, playful polka dots and beautiful brocades resembling those found on a cozy handmade quilt.  And, this unique collection brings with it a special surprise…a small gift box die ready to be cut, assembled and embellished, making packaging smaller gifts quick and easy during the busiest time of the year!  So, grab your quilt, cozy on up in your craft room and join us as we bring just a kiss of snow to your craft table….we promise no shoveling required!

The card I made features the Spruce Trees die and some decorative, natural foliage to create a winter scene in a box! I stamped each of the trees twice onto dark green patterned paper from the Snow Kissed Paper Collection and die cut them with their coordinating dies.  I then covered them with a thin coat of Dries Clear Gue and crystal glitter.

After assembling all my pieces, I inserted the card into a clear Heartfelt Creations box and added more die cuts and embellishments to the outside. 
All the step by step details for this gift box are on the Heartfelt Creations Blog today!  Head on over to check it out along with some fantastic cards and projects made by my incredibly talented Design Team Members!!

Christmas Card in a Box

 Hello Friends!

I made several of these "card in a box" cards with a couple different Heartfelt Creations collections -- the one I'm sharing today is with the Celebrate the Season collection.  Just a wonderful color palette and of course Poinsettias, so what's not to love??

Here's a closeups of what's inside:

The main thing to remember is to create the card first, then insert it into the clear box, and then add the frame or additional embellishments to the outside of the box so you can see how they align with your card.  Here's the card that is inside the box:
See what I mean, jelly bean?  :)

Step by step instructions are on the HC Blog today!  Check it out and you'll find lots more inspiring creations by the amazing Design Team!!

Heartfelt Celebrates the Season

Hi Friends!

July reminds us that Christmas is only six months away!!  And to get a fun jump-start on making your cards this year, like you always say you're going to do "next year" (lol!), Heartfelt Creations is releasing "Celebrate the Season" collection today!!
"The time has come to once again “Celebrate the Season” with Heartfelt Creations!  Non-traditional in color, this new holiday themed collection showcases an assortment of exceptional winter hues…shades of teals, pinks, greens and violets resembling the northern lights, whites as crisp as freshly fallen snow and ice blues mimicking frozen ponds beneath the blades of gently gliding ice skates.  Four fanciful cling stamp sets filled with old fashioned themed illustrations of ornate sleighs, wooden gates, gifts, skates, mittens, and simple wreaths filled with poinsettias and greenery, along with an assortment of charming sentiments will bring feelings of nostalgia from Christmas past to all of your crafty creations while being paired with the contemporary color palette of Christmas present.  Three coordinating sets of dies will have you creating your very own dimensional embellishments perfect for holiday cards, layouts and altered art pieces.  Join us as we “Celebrate the Season” and get an early start to all of our holiday themed creating."
The color palette for this holiday collection is wonderful! I love the non-traditional pastels that are featured. They're cheerful and feel "cool", and here in Texas, that's just about perfect timing right now!

I went for a little more of a vintage feel for my first card from the collection.  Just because the images seemed more from a days-gone-by era.  Good times... The collection has some mini poinsettias to die cut and color, so it was fun going for an unconventional lavender color for my poinsettias.

There's lots of fun winter-y images that you can stamp and die cut to add to your projects, or you can diecut pre-colored ones that come with the papers collection like I did here.  I distressed them with Ranger Tea Dye ink to coordinate with the rest of the card. 

Be sure to check out the Heartfelt Creations Blog this week! Step by step instructions and a list of products I used are posted there. Plus lots of fun samples and beautiful inspiration using the new collection!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a blessed week!

Hummingbirds in Flight

Hello Friends!

Wishing all of you a very happy Wednesday!!  Today I'm posting another card made from the Botanical Orchid Collection.  I love the hummingbirds from this set - they come in all sizes and you even have the option to use pre-colored images for those of us that run out of productive hours way too soon everyday!!

I created the orchids using the coordinating Botanical Orchid stamp and die set and die cut pre-colored hummingbirds right from the paper collection.  Easy peasy to do and the results make me happy!

Be sure to take a moment to see all the amazing works of art on the Heartfelt Creations Blog today!  I just have to say WOW to all my fellow Design Team members, their work is amazing!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a blessed week!
