Blog Candy Winner

A very good evening everyone!  I hope you have all had a very good week and for those of you that have the weekend free I hope you have a good one:)  You have probably guessed what I am going to be doing.....making up more kits! I have been absolutely astonished at the response and I just hope it lives up to your expectations....I have made it as easy as possible so that even a pretty new crafter will be able to make it:)

Blog Candy Winner

It's time to announce another winner:)  So the lucky winner of 2 Heartfelt Creations stamps of your choice is..............................SHEILA GINGER....Congratulations!!!!!! If you email me your details and your chosen stamps then I will get your candy to you! Decisions! Decisions!:)

  Show Dates

I have had the date confirmed for the July shows:
3rd July
14th July
I will  update you all with the times once I have had confirmation.

 Arianna Birthday

Now for todays cards....Again it is from the gorgeous Arianna collection, but this card is so different than the other cards that I have posted using this collection using only cream card and no patterned papers!


  • I have used cream card on all the layers on this card using a Sue Wilson embossing folder on the top one.
  • I have used the Arianna Birthday stamp which I have stamped with plum ink.
  • I stamped and die cut a set of the Arianna flowers and used the smallest 3. Finishing off the flower with a Hobby House pearl button.
  • Next I added a flourish each side which I die cut from the Arianna Lace die set.
  • To finish off the card I have added 2 strips of the Hobby House pearls on string.
I love these clean and elegant cards and they are so quick to make....honest:)
Enjoy the rest of your evening:) x

  12. Hi Nikki. Beautiful, really pretty. I like using same coloured card for the matts and layers, esp white for weddings, christenings and confirmations because then you can either dress down for the 'classic' look or add explosions of colour for the 'wow' factor : )
    Yaaaay! Well done Sheila Ginger you lucky lucky lady, some Friday 13th nothing but luck for you today : ) the only difficult part of winning is deciding what stamps you'd like Nikki to add with the rest of your candy bag. Enjoy it all. I wouldnt mind having that predicament though : )
    Have a good weekend all.

  13. Hi Nikki
    What a stunning card you have created. Love the happy birthday stamp and the flowers. The little finishing touches from hobby house are gorgeous as well. Congratulations to Sheila on her win.

  14. Beautiful classic design Nikki. I have that embossing folder and the oval die and the Arianna Happy Birthday stamp is on order so I will be having a go at this. Would be lovely for my granddaughter's 21st. Pat x

  15. Pretty card, really like this stamp, might have to buy it, look forward to your next shows,x

  16. Lovely card as always. Beautiful sentiment stamp and the single flower is just right. The pearls on a string are gorgeous. I love the pretty papers you use, but now and again it's great to play with textures.


I hope I have inspired you with my creations :)
