Blog Candy Winner and another Heartfelt Creations Card

Good evening everyone! I hope you are all well and had a good weekend:)
I would like to thank you all for watching my first Heartfelt creations show yesterday.
It was a very successful show and the full bundle including all the stamps and paper pad and also the paper pads on their own sold out which is why the repeat shows were cancelled:)
Wow! that is amazing.....and I really didn't expect to sell out in just one hour!

Now I am looking forward to playing....ummm I mean creating with the collection that is due for release in April:) I even had the May collection delivered this morning and ohhhhh they just keep getting better! Every time a new release comes out us girls on the design team say 'how on earth can Heartfelt better this?' However they just keep on bringing us these gorgeous collections:) I really am honoured to be part of it:)


Oh and have you all noticed that you can now pin my images straight to your Pinterest board! Just click on the image that you require:)

I am glad you all liked the samples and over the next few days I will share some close up photos and also some tutorials on how I created them.

Blog Candy Winner

Almost forgot to announce the blog winner............................Congratulations!............................Rachel - Rach83......well done!  If you drop me an email with your details and I will get your goodies posted off to you:) x
So for my card today: Birthday Time


  • This card is 8"x8".
  • I have used one of the panels from the Once Upon a Time Collection. I fussy cut the alarm clock out from the papers, even though there is an alarm clock stamp in the collection...but this one is bigger and I thought it looked better on this size card. I inked over the clock to with a little faded Jeans Distress ink. I have also cut out the tag from the papers.
  • I have stamped and die cut the Time Sentiments.
  • I stamped the numeral stamp and heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer white detail embossing powder. I used Stormy Sky and a little Faded Jeans Distress inks and wiped away the excess from the embossed area. I then matted this onto some navy card stock.
  • I made up the card as in picture adding some lace and some decorative pearls from The Hobby House to embellish my card.
That's it from me today....rather a long post:)
I will be back tomorrow sometime....I just need to photograph all my other cards!

  12. I do not know why the reply is deleted - will try again

  13. Lovely card Nikki, Congrats to Rachel also x
    Just had to mention the beautiful album on the show too, gorgeous!

  14. Lucky Rachel! Your card is BEAUTIFUL Nikki - a work of art if ever I saw one! The colours go so well with the vintage feel. The Once Upon a Time Collection is superb. I make most of my cards in 8 x 8 it seems such a 'comfortable' size.

  15. Great card - brought back memories as my Dad had one of those clocks. He used to put it on an enamelled plate for extra loud rings. He said it was much more efficient than electric alarm clocks. Congrats to the winner.

  16. Love this card, Nikki! So fun to see that vintage clock paired up with pearls! I watched the taped did a great job! xoxo

  17. A lovely card Nikki
