Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

Good morning everyone!
It's Wednesday!!!! Which means another Heartfelt Creations project:)
I have used the papers from the Floral Key Collection to create my card today, along with  the Tattered Blossom Die and co-ordinating stamps to create a beautiful cluster of flowers in creams and brown tones and finished with a organza bow!

I have stamped the Tattered Blossom onto cream card with Coffee Archival ink and coloured them with Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Ink - Pearl Shine.

Shimmer gold card, Brown card, Cream card,
Instructions: Begin with a 7 ½” x  7 ½” cream card base. Cut a piece of brown card 7”x7” and adhere to the card base.  Die cut 2 Detailed Scallop rectangles, cut one of them so that when put together it measures 7” square, and adhere this to the card (the joins will be covered with the bow and the flowers).Choose some patterned paper from the paper collection, cut to 6”x6”and adhere this on top of the now square Detailed Scallops.  Choose a rectangle panel from the paper collection and adhere this to the card, just of centre towards the left.
Die cut and stamp the Classic leaves 4 times. Die cut and stamp the Tattered Blossom flowers, enough to make 3 larger flowers and 2 small flowers. Paint the flowers with the Acrylic Drawing ink.
Die cut the tag from the Detailed Scallops die set in cream card. Choose a sentiment from the Paper Collection and adhere to the tag. Adhere the tag/sentiment to the right hand side of the panel on the card. Adhere the flowers and leaves in a pleasing cluster to the right hand side of the card.
Die cut and stamp the heart from the Burnished key stamp and co-ordinating die in cream card and a small key in gold shimmer card. Make a bow and adhere to the bottom left of the card and add the key and heart to the centre. To finish the card add some Platinum Stickles glitter.

Don't forget to have a look over on the Heartfelt Creations blog for more inspiration from the Design Team!
I will be back tomorrow with another card from my debut show on Create and Craft.
Enjoy the rest of your day:) x


  1. Morning Nikki, I watched your shows with Julia on Sunday, fabulous, fabulous demo's, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching you and your cards were stunning. I have fallen in love 'again' with Stickles after seeing your cards, they look so effective.
    I absolutely adore this card, the colours are gorgeous and the compilation is fabulous.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  6. Awww very pretty indeed. But it looks over fussy for me but I love it

    Love Tracy from killie

  7. gorgeous |!!! love the flowers I wondered about not colouring them totally !!! Yum ! hugs xx

  8. A very pretty card Nikki, love the colours, Carole Z X

  9. Sooooooo lovely, Nikki! The wreath of flowers around the focal image is so effective here. And that brown bow....scrumptious!

  10. Hi Nikki and Nikkets everywhere. Love the card today, particularly the colour, but too much going on for me Im afraid, I usually think less is more when I do my cards, that is NO way a critism by any means, and is a card Id enjoy receiving and keeping up longer than ANY shop bought card I receive ! Its just that I wouldn't put so much on my projects (oooo, Im having a de-ja-vue moment) dont like those : /

    Have a happy day everyone.
