HEARTFELT CREATIONS - MAY 9, 2012

I am so excited about the new Heartfelt Creations release.  I love all Heartfelt Creations products, but it can't get any better than teacups and flowers - some of my all time favorite things!  This is what HC has to say about the new release:

"We are delighted to present the Old English Garden Collection. Come have a cup of tea with us in our Old English Garden. With flower blooms as fresh as the morning dew and cracked walls as old as the dirt beneath it, this set offers a rustic flavor. The typography flows as smoothly as a calm spring breeze. Be sure to grab the custom die for maximum creative versatility and fun 3D depth! There are 6 new PreCut Stamp Sets and one beautiful new exclusive Spellbinders die designed for Heartfelt Creations. Leave a comment on the HC blog by May 15th and you will be eligible to win the entire release valued at $141.99."

For my project this week I used metallic vellum paper and the new HC Tattered Blossoms Stamps and Dies plus several other HC flowers and leaves stamps and dies to decorate a lace fan.  What a beautiful and fun project this turned out to be!
