Create and Craft Shows Tomorrow and some Cut Mat Create Inspiration

Evening fellow bloggers!  I hope things are good:)....rain and more rain here in East Anglia:(

I just wanted to hop on and give you all a heads up on 2 Create and Craft shows I will be doing tomorrow...with some great offers on some of the last few months Heartfelt Creations collections, including Celebrate the Journey, Sweet Lullaby, Arianna Blooms and last weeks Cut Mat Create!
I only got asked today to do the shows so have just packed my Christmas collection up for a few days so that I can prep some fabulous demo's..... So I know most have you have probably seen the other shows, but this time I will be demoing different cards to give you all lot's of inspiration (that's the plan)!

It is of course the official release for the Cut Mat Create collection so you will find lot's of inspiration over on the Heartfelt Creations blog. I have added a new card using this collection just  below the older collections pictures!

Although you have probably seen these cards before I thought I would share a few tonight to remind you of the collections:) 
Celebrate the Journey Collection

 Sweet Lullaby

Arianna Blooms Collection

And of course the new release - Cut Mat Create

  • For this card I have used the Summer Song pre cut stamp and coloured it in using water colour pencils, distress inks and Versa magic ink.
  • I have used one of the decorative panels from the papers and cut the centre out with the Cut Mat Create dies.
  • I have layered the image onto a mat again using the Cut Mat Create dies.
  • Next I have die cut a selection of the decorative vines and lace border dies.
  • The flower is from the Sweet Lullaby die collection.
  • I have adhered all the elements onto the card using some pearls on string and adhesive pearls to embellish........sorry for the quick run down tutorial today:(

Also on the show I will have some gorgeous Creative Expressions products including to name just a few glitter, pearls, embossing powders, and ribbon  so a perfect opportunity for you to stock up:)

Now back to my prepping:)
