More Heartfelt Creations creations lol

So I've spent a few dollars online with Heartfelt Creations, and I have to say, it was money well spent.  I'm feeling all kinds of mojo flowing again.  Their style it quite a ways outside my usual style, and I think that all that stretching is good for me!

To start things off, I got their Flowering Dogwood card kit, just for some ideas and to see how I'd like the designs.  Well, of course I loved them!  Here are the card kit cards, created just as the instructions said:




Pretty huh?  And not nearly so difficult as I imagined they would be.  Now these cards did take a bit more time than my usual, but I really enjoyed it.

Now my first foray into the Flowering Dogwood Collection on my own:




Not too bad for a girl missing her mojo, huh.  I think this card will go to my pastor.

Supplies used:

HC Flowering Dogwood Collection stamps, dies, and paper
HC Hope in the Lord stamp set
HC Fleur Border Basics die set
HC 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded card

Thanks for looking.  And go have a look at the HC website!  They have such pretty, pretty things.

Froggy Went A-Courtin

I am sooo in love with these cute little frogs in Heartfelt Creations' Winking Frog collection!  They just make me smile.

So here is my latest card, which will be going to a dear friend for Valentine's day:


The flowers around the top right corner are because I was silly and forgot to leave room for the foam adhesive when I die cut the oval, so they cover the excess adhesive.  But I think they make a very nice addition.  The water lilies in the bottom left are actually the same flowers, just shaped and layered.  What do you think?

Supplies used:

HC Winking Frog collection papers, stamps and dies
HC Seas The Day prills
Copic markers
Spellbinders ornate oval die
SU! Basic Black and Basic Grey inks
SU! Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizazz card stocks
Tombow Mono Multi glue
3M foam tape
Spectrum Noir sparkle pen

Thanks for looking!

Heartfelt Creations Haul

So a few months back, I went to a rubber stamp show and picked up a couple of Heartfelt Creations' Winking Frog stamps and the matching die.  Well they are so stinkin cute, I went and ordered the rest of the collection Sunday evening online.  Do you know it was here for me to play with already tonight?!? That's what I call customer service!  Fast, fast, fast.  And I have to tell you these are beautiful designs, and top quality red rubber stamps on cling mount.  The dies cut like butter too!  So anyhoo, this is my first Heartfelt Creations card with all my new toys:


This is my very first try at flower shaping, too.  The above 6x6 card was made with one sheet of double-sided paper, plus some SU! Whisper White and Blushing Bride for the flowers.  I kind of wish I hadn't covered so much of my sentiment, but you get the idea.  So there you go.

Supplies used:

SU! Whisper White cs
SU! Blushing Bride cs
SU! Basic Grey ink
Memento Tuxedo black ink
Festive Berries distress ink
Copic markers
Heartfelt Creations paper, stamps and dies from the Winking Frog Collection
Heartfelt Creations Decorative Lace Border die
Matte Multi-medium glue
3M foam adhesive tape
Wink of Stella marker

Thanks for looking!

Fourteen Valentines, card 7

Halfway there!  This card is a little mix of Stampin' Up! card stock and DSP with a Hot Off the Press die.

Here's the card:


The heart and the background are cut from the same DSP- it gradates from bottom to top in intensity, leaving a beautiful soft bokeh effect at the top.

Anyhoo.  Thinking about bedtime soon, may make more cards tomorrow after church.  Have a great night!

Fourteen Valentines, card 6

Whew!  I'm getting a lot done today.  Well, except for housework.  But that will keep, amiright?

Here's card 6:


Another masculin-ish card.  I think so anyway.  Mainly because it has no pastels or froofy stuff on it.

Here's what I used to make it:

Fourteen Valentines, card 5

Here is my card:


I was going for something that could be given to a man and was not too mushy, but still had a valentine-y feel.  I think I hit the mark, what do you think?

I kind of like how the scallop design in the paper mimics the scallops on the circles.  It makes my OCD happy.

Fourteen Valentines, card 4

Here's my fourth valentine for the homebound:


I still love those hedgies!  I am thinking I should have put a little red border on the whisper white rectangle, though... maybe next time.
