Thoughtful Greetings

Wow! It's Wednesday again. I don't know where June has gone, but we are fast approaching July. I used the scene from Heartfelt Creations on this card. I colored the image with Copic Markers and cut out the scene with the Spellbinders oval die. I then cut out the Decorative Rectangle Window Die and cut it in half, so I could frame the oval. It seemed that it still needed something, so I stamped the posy clusters and 3-D some of the flowers to add some embellishments. Then I attached a sentiment and some Cream Pearls...of course!! Be sure to check out the great cards on the Heartfelt Creation blog too!

Shoe Hop with Heartfelt Creations

It's time for Heartfelt Creations Wednesday. I used more of their new stamps from the wedding collection for this card along with some of the Silver Inka-Gold from Viva Decor to make silver embossed paper for this 25th wedding anniversary card. You can find more detailed instruction on the Heartfelt Creations blog. We also are doing a "shoe hop" this week! How fun is that?! This was something that was out of my comfort zone, but I had fun with it! So on this creative journey, if you came from Tesa's blog you are on the right track. If you're lost, head back to the Heartfelt Creations blog to head in the right direction. Here is a picture of my vintage shoe:
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!

It's your birthday...again?!

We've been busy drawing more images! Here is a card we did as a make and take at our latest Stamp Convention. Sir Knight is colored with Copic Markers. The decorative edge was using one of the On the edge dies by Tim Holtz. Then we faux stitched with the ScorBuddy and ScorBug. The Silver tin-like piece, was made with the Silver Inka-Gold made by Viva Decor. Spread the Inka-Gold over white cardstock, then run this through the cuttlebug with the fleur de lis embossing folder. Remove from the folder and rub with a kleenex to buff to a more bright metallic sheen. After I stamped the sentiment, I cut it out with the spellbinders labels and used the Viva Decor silver Pearl Pen to add pearls for more embellishments. The second part of the sentiment "It's your birthday...Again?!" was stamped on the inside of the card.

Wedding Dove

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!

Sorry it has taken so long for me to blog...again! I have been busy drawing more images as well as trying to keep up with my kids and their busy schedules. Here is a card that I made with the Bella Rosa Collection from Heartfelt Creations. I used the background stamp and colored it with Copic Markers. Then cut a piece of ScorTape the same size as the background. Remove the liner and then sprinkle over the tape with Warm Highlight Microfine Glitter from Elizabeth Craft. Stamp, Color and Cut out the images that you want to "pop". Place them over the background. Stamp the sentiment on cream cardstock and then cut out with Nestabilities.
