A Gift of Love

A very happy Wednesday to you all:)
So firstly an update on the Journey album kit.  I have filmed half of the tutorial and plan on finishing this off you may well have guessed it is quite a long one.
I am estimating that this kit will be available from next Wednesday and as I said in yesterdays post the cost is £15 and payable through paypal.
I understand that albums are not everyone's thing so my next kit will be a criss cross card with a tag.
This kit should be available within the next 2 weeks.
Now onto the card that I would like to share is of course Heartfelt Creations Wednesday:)
This card isn't on the Heartfelt Creations blog this week....due to the fact that I have so much crafting going on  ( I of course have to share myself with the family too) I am able to opt out of doing a full tutorial and loading my card/project up on there blog each week. So you will find that I probably will only post on there a few times a month....sorry:( Having said that please hop on over and take a peek at the gorgeous makes that the rest of the DT have created HERE

A Gift of Love


  • I have of course used the latest collection - Sweet Lullaby:)
  • I matted a soft sage green card onto my card base which measures 7" square and chose some patterned paper measuring 6 1/2" square from the collection and matted this onto it.
  • I die cut out the Spellbinder die Reflective Moment which is one of the new ones. I inked the edges a little with some pink chalk ink and added this to my card with foam pads...I put the left hand side pads slightly more away from the edge as I have a removable decorative tag which I thought would be nice to add the birth time, date and name of the baby and maybe even add a gift card to the back!
  • I chose one of the panels from the paper collection and adhered this to the Spellbinder die.
  • I die cut out the pram and 2 wheels.  Before adhering the pram I have threaded some lace through the pram hood. I adhered the pram just at the edges and adhered it to the card giving it a slight curve. I added the wheels with tiny foam pads.
  • Next I have added a pink band of ribbon and lace across the card and also a pink bow...To allow the tag to slide under the ribbon, don't add any glue/tape here.
  • I have added a pink flower which is in the die collection and placed it in the centre of the bow.
  • I have cut a tag out from the papers and added this to the bottom of the bow.
  • The final element that I have added is the sentiment which I have also cut out from the papers.
  • To finish off the card I have added some pearls and yes! a little Stickles glitter. 
When I started this post I decided not to do a full tutorial, but I just can't help myself lol......I hope you have enjoyed my post today:)
I will be back soon take care x

  6. Hello Nikki
    I think most new parents would be thrilled to receive todays card. It is very pretty indeed. You seem to be taking so much on in a very short time you mind you don't over do things; pace yourself it doesn't all have to be done at once :) Remember that HC's blog is an amazing shop front for your work and for promoting yourself.

  7. Hi Nikki, this is such a Stunning Card, I must admit when I first saw the collection I thought not for me with being for Children, Having No Children and No Family or Friends with Children, but seeing some of your Awesome Samples where you've turned it into a Umbrella, (I'd never think of that) I Love the Card Stock and what I really love about your Cards is your Embellishments, Nikki thank you for sharing and the breakdown of the card.
    Take Great Care
    Love and Hugs
