Here are two calendar pages I did using Heartfelt Creations stamps. These two months use flowers that are limited edition stamps and will only be available until Dec. 31st. So be sure you get them before they have run out. You can order from Heartfelt Creations or we also have some in our store for you to purchase! This calender stand is from Zutter and I used 6" square pages. With the calendar itself, I used clear photo corners so that you can replace the month year after year. I will be showing more pages every week, so be sure to keep looking! Also...check out what the talented designers have done with more of these limited edition stamps on the Heartfelt Creations blog!

This card uses the new Artistic Gatefold dies from Heartfelt Creations. This is the Elegant Swirl die and it is very versatile! Here I made the Gatefold card. I cut the paper 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored it with the ScorBuddy. If you place the card onto the ScorBuddy, you will score at the dots, which measure 2 1/8" and 6 3/8". January 5th and January 24th, I will be having classes on doing a card similar to this one as well as two other cards that uses these same dies. You can see some ideas of what else you can do with these dies!

I love the Heartfelt Creations poinsettia flowers. These make great accents to cards and scrapbook pages! I stamped the poinsettias and colored them with the Copic Markers. I like the R46 and R59 for the deep red color. I colored the entire flowers with the R46. I wasn't careful to stay in the line, because I was just going to cut them out with the die anyway. Then starting from the outside edge I colored half way with the R59 Copic using a feathering stroke. Go back and blend with the original color. I formed the petals of each layer, then popped them on to of each other. Then I finished each with the gold Viva Decor Pearl Pen. Be sure to check out the beautiful projects that the Design Team created!

New from Tsukineko is the Fireworks Sprays! They are very glitzy!! They come in several color and they can be used to add glittery color to ribbon, twill, flowers, paper and more. I use three techniques on this card using the Fireworks sprays. First I sprayed some of the Danube Blue and the Lulu Lavender onto a craft sheet, letting the colors blend together a little. Then I inked the butterfly stamp from Penny Black and stamped it on white cardstock. There was still lots of ink on the craft sheet, so next I rolled over the ink with my brayer. Then brayered over a 4" x 5 1/4" light purple cardstock until the entire paper is covered. The background is now sparkly with color. Stamp a design over the paper with a background stamp and VersaFine black ink. The third technique, I stamped my sentiment onto paper and cut out with the Spellbinders Petite oval die. After I cut out the oval, I left the die over the paper and sprayed over the sentiment with the Lulu Lavender fireworks spray. Remove the die and you have a glittery sentiment. I used black cardstock for the card and accents to really make the glitz sparkle! I'm not sure how much sparkle you can see from the picture, but you can see the real card at the store. Thanks for looking!

I used some of the Cosmo Cricket decorator paper. It had a tapestry look to it that I felt went with the vintage fabric theme. I added some faux stitches to it. I pleated the paper on the end of one flap that went through a small slit. Then I mad a 3-D flower to pop up on the shoe. For the back, I add the lacy edge from the rectangle window die. The heel has a gold band that I created with the Gold Inka-Gold cream and two gold pearls as accents. Now step on over to Carla's blog to see some more fun and fancy shoes. We hope you enjoy each step of this journey!

Here is the new wedding dove from Heartfelt Creations! The lacy accent is from their Lacy Border Die. It can be cut apart. You are then able to use different parts to create beautiful lacy borders or use the die as one piece. The possibilities are endless! The Dove was colored with Copic Markers, and then cut out and placed on a stenciled Nestabilities Circle. The Decorator paper is from Memory Box. The neat thing about these papers are the many designs on one sheet. Then you can use the part that best fits your card. Once I laid the lace border across the center of the card, it appears almost as two different papers! Be sure to hop over to the Heartfelt Creations blog and see the great cards that the other Design Team Members came up with this week! Congratulations goes to Candy S. for winning this months entire new release from Heartfelt Creations!

Here is another card using one of Heartfelt Creations Springtime Cardinal Stamps. I stamped another smaller cardinal on a separate piece of cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. Then I cut it out with the matching Cardinal Family die. I popped the "baby" cardinal on the branch with the "mommy" cardinal. Now...a perfect Mother's Day card! I used the Fancy Tags Three die to mat the sentiment "Mom...You mean so much to me." Decorator paper is by Memory Box. Be sure to check out the other cards from this Collection as well as a sneak peak for the new stamps that will be released next week! Wishing you all a Happy Mother's Day!
