Journey of a Lifetime

A very good evening to you all! I hope you all had a good weekend:) x
First I would like to apologise for the lack of posts over the last week and the coming week.
I am busy beavering away in my craft room trying to get lots of samples made for my next Heartfelt Creations show.
My next show is Sunday May 11th......a 2 hour show from 9am - 11am!!! Ooohhh I couldn't believe that Create and Craft trust me to do a 2 hour show lol! I am very excited:)....have you seen the sneaky peek over on the Heartfelt Creations Facebook page?.....I didn't make it, but 'Wow' it is a stunning creations! You are going to love the new collection:)
I am also going away on Thursday to our friends villa in Spain.....we will be back on Monday, but am really looking forward to some quality time with my hubby and my 2 youngest children:).....Of course my Copics and water colour pens will be coming along with me as I have some gorgeous images to colour  up:)
My card that I would like to share with you today is similar to one that I shared a few days of my favourite cards that I have made using the Celebrate the Journey collection! Here is the link to the other card - Time for a Getaway
For this card though I have chosen a lush pink combo. It just goes to show that using similar elements, but choosing different colours you can completely change the style of a card.

  • For this card I have used lot's of elements from the Celebrate the Journey collection.
  • I have die cut 2 of the Suitcases and stamped one with the co-ordinating stamp.
  • I stamped the map onto some white paper. I tore the paper into 3 and have used some Tea Dye, Walnut Stain distress inks and also some VersaMark ink - Pink Petunia.....scrunching and folding the paper whilst inking it up. I rolled 2 up and tied with some twine and added the other as to make it look like it is coming out of the suitcase.
  • I have made a small rose using the Vintage Floret dies and stamps.
  • After adding the elements to the card I added some stickles glitter - Pink Taffeta.
  • To finish I added a twine bow, pearl brad and a vintage 'journey' charm.
That's all from me this evening.
Take care x

  15. Hi Nikki
    Late today as my hubby has been on Skype to his brother in Bournemouth. I love how you have made this card. Mind you I love all the cards you have made so far. Completely forgot to look on the HC website. So must do so tomorrow to see what's in the new collection. My bank manager won't be pleased. look forward to seeing your shows, but might be away for that week. So will record as usual to watch later. I hope you have a fantastic few days away in Spain with your family and a good rest after all your hard work.

  16. love the suitcase and how it all looks like it is being emptied out of all those tags, fabulous Nikki.

  17. Hiya Nikki. Oooooooooo. Boootiful. Pink luggage : )
    Its a cert now, I HAVE to get some of these elements, how fab this set would be to make a honeymoon card for our daughter and future hubby to leave at the breakfast table following their wedding, yep my mind is made up. Talking of luggage Nikki, so as you have a complete rest Im only too happy to carry your bags to and from the airports lol. Just ask and I'll be there lol.
    Looking forward to your shows.

    Enjoy your trip. Have a good day to you all.
