Create & Craft Sneak Peek

Hello everyone...I bet you thought that I had left you all? My sincere apologies for not being around over the last week....I have been really busy, not just prepping for the Create & Craft release on Friday (7pm) but I have also lot's of things that I am working on at the moment which I hope to share with you all very soon:)
So anyway I hope you are all well and thank you for continuing to support me even though I have been absent.

All Geared Up Sneak Peek 

Today I would like to share a sneak peek for the brand new Heartfelt Creations collection called All Geared Up.  You may have seen a sneak peek over on the Heartfelt blog last week.
This collection is a more masculine collection however the dies a really versatile allowing you to make gorgeous flowers from them.

My first thoughts on this collection was....not girly enough for me and although we all have to make masculine cards I always struggle with them, but this collection is stunning, from the papers to the really is a fantastic collection for the men in your life, but also by using more feminine colours you can easily create a girly card:)
 The items that I have used to create this card are:
  • Heartfelt Creation products: HCPC 3632 - Plates & Gears Precut Set, HCPC 3635 - Shifting Gears Precut Set, All Geared Up Die set and the All Geared up paper collection.  I have also Used the Cut Mat Create dies which compliment this collection beautifully.
  • To add the vintage feel to the card I have used some Stampendous Frantage and also used Viva Decor 3D Stamp Paint.
I am hoping that I may have time to demo this card on Friday.  The first show is on Friday 3rd at 7pm (a late one) and then the next show is on the Saturday at 11am. 

Just a quick post tonight, but I will be back soon to share another All Geared up creation:)

Take care everyone:) x


  1. Hi Nikki this set looks interesting and your card is really unusual. I think I will have to watch it on your show to see all the colours . X

  2. Hi Nikki
    I was just thinking this morning that I would email you to see if tou were all right. It had been a while since you had posted anything. Glad you are ok and that it is just hard work. Hard work does no harm if you remember to breathe that is LOL!

    Lovely card but after the last two collectiins which I just had to buy I am relieved this is one that I can maybe just choose an element or two.

    Your card is lovely christmassy in fact can't wait to see your programmes!

  4. Hi Nikki
    I was beginning to wonder where you were. Now we know you were prepping for your shows.. Will set the hard drive to record these.
    Another stunning creation today from the new die release. Can't wait to hear your news.

  5. Morning Nikki, I love this card !! to me, it is quite 'steampunky' but with a 'girlie' twist, love the colours and love everything you have done on this card, it is gorgeous. I never like doing male cards either, but always put 'gears' etc for embellies.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  6. Beautiful card Nikki, there is so much detail, it must have taken ages to put together. Really looking forward to the shows and the future Heartfelt releases. Hugs Fern x

  7. This looks amazing Nikki. Good Luck with the shows I am looking forward to seeing your demos.

    Love & Hugs
