How Time Flies

Happy Wednesday everyone! Half way through the week already..... how time flies!!!....Sorry I just couldn't help it:)...But it is time for Heartfelt Creations Design team to share more inspiring cards and projects using the Once Upon a Time Collection over on the Heartfelt Creations blog HERE
This week you will not see my creation posted on the main Heartfelt blog as I didn't get chance to post it on there in time:(
Today I thought I would share the clock that I decorated using the papers and elements from the Once Upon a Time Collection.

This was a really fun project to make and was relatively easy.
  • The centre clock face is from the paper collection which I cut out. I matted it onto the small/medium die from the Spellbinder Grand Decorative Circle die set.
  • I adhered all of my paper to the MDF parts before gluing the clock together.....the clock came in 3 parts and the actual clock workings are sold separately.
  • I stamped the Floral Clocks image randomly all over the clock.
  • I used some Gesso on the bird...which I think is a cuckoo but mine looks more like a dove lol. I then sponged over with some pale dusky pink, blue and grey acrylic paint. I added a pearl for the eye.
  • I die cut and stamped  the Majestic Morning flowers, Open Leaves and the leave flourishes from the Gift Ensemble die set.
  • I fussy cut some of the tags and sentiments from the papers.
  • The clocks are: Time Sentiments, Numeral sentiments and Timeless sentiments. I always like to stamp and die cut a selection of sentiments and this type of element and keep them in a plastic tub, then I always have some to go to when I am making a project.
  • I added some lace and pearls which are from The Hobby House.
  • I adhered a vintage metal clock in the centre of the open heart.
  • I die cut the trellis hearts from the Timeless Amour die set in the teal paper from the collection and adhered these to the hearts on the clocks.
  • I adhered the flowers and leaves etc. I added some pearls in the centre of each flower and on the trellis hearts.
  • Finally I added some Stickles Glitter - Diamond
I purchased the MDF clock and workings online at Cuddly

Now I am off  to work on some samples for my next Heartfelt Creations show which is on April 14th.....times to be confirmed.
Enjoy the rest of your day:)

  10. Hi Nikki
    What a stunning creation you have made with this set. The clock looks fabulous. Look forward to recording and watching your next show.

  11. Hi Nikki
    This clock is stunning, I have ordered the die and stamps but I think I need the papers too

  12. What a fun and fabulous project! You did such a great job of decorating this, Nikki!

  13. Hi Nikki
    I thought this clock really stood out on the show. it's beautiful and looks very pretty, love it x

  14. Hi, this is a work of art, pleased it was on the show, its just so beautiful, xx

  15. I don't know if anyone has realised but, I am just starting a clock project and oh my goodness what a disappointment !!! The click in the heartfelt book only 10 points on it!!!!
    So I can't make my clock from this!!! What a shame I can't have a clock that won't tell the time properly. I will contact heartfelt about this because such attention to detail must be important to them and I can't understand how this can be!!! Oh well that's my project having to be re thought

  16. Thank you Bernadette for bring this to my attention....I made mine in a bit of a rush as I wanted to get it finished for the show and I can't believe I hadn't picked it up:( I did think the numerals were a little out but just didn't really think much of it as I just wanted to get it finished lol.....I have emailed you with a solution though:) x


I hope I have inspired you with my creations :)
Thank you for visiting my blog & please call back soon :)
