HEARTFELT CREATIONS - MAY 30, 2012

It's Heartfelt Creations Wednesday again!  I hope you had a good Memorial Day Weekend.  Ours was pretty quiet and we had a nice time spent with family and friends.

This week I created two projects for Heartfelt Creations using the Old English Garden Collection Stamps. The first card I made I used Earth Flower Soft as the dirt in the broken terracotta pot as a fun accent.

TERRACOTTA POTS CARD


For my second project I found these Mini Envelopes & Tags by Melissa Frances that are 3" x 3".  They are a really fun size to work with and embellish.

HEARTFELT CREATIONS - MAY 28, 2012

Happy Memorial Day!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  It has been very hot here in Indiana - in the 90s which is a little unusual for May.

I guess I was having such a busy week last week creating and working on some future projects for Heartfelt Creations that I forgot to post my Wednesday, May 23 entry. 

The card I made last week has a summer look and feel.  The scene I colored with Copics is from the HCPC 3444 - Scenic Vistas PreCut Set and I used HCD 718 - Chateau Gate Die to frame the colored scene.

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!

HEARTFELT CREATIONS - MAY 2, 2012

I hope you are having a good week.  It is suppose to warm up here and be in the upper 80s by the end of the week.  Hopefully it will quit raining and I will be able to work in my flower beds later this week.  I have been thinking about the outdoors a lot, so this week I created two scenic cards.  The first card is a picture of a relaxing lake and my second card I started with a blank sheet of paper and used Heartfelt Creations stamps to build a complete country scene.

Make sure you check out all the other great projects the other HC Design Team members created this week on the Heartfelt Creations blog.
