Heartfelt Creations - Celebrating You

Afternoon everyone:) I hope you are all having a good weekend....we have sunshine here in Peterborough which makes a change from the wind and rain we have had during the week.  

Today I want to show you how I have created a girly card using the All Geared Up collection.  The more I get to use this collection the more I am loving it. Although I am now working on the next collection which will be on Create and Craft in a few weeks:)  I will update you on times when I have had them confirmed.

 I love the way that the artist has created a window scene.

  • To create this card I have used some pink card and matted some of the paler card from the paper collection onto it.
  • I stamped the All Geared Up Background stamp - HCPC 3637onto cream card and have used distress inks and a blender pen to colour it in. 
  • I have then matted the image onto some of pink card and matted this onto the main card.
  • Next I have stamped the Nuts and Bolts precut stamp - HCPC 3633 again onto some cream card and coloured it in.  I have cut it out and adhered it to the right hand corner of the image. To give it some dimension I have curled the ends of the flower and only added some glue in the centre.
  • I have made a triple pale pink bow and added this to the nut and bolt flower.
  • I have used some Hobby House bead spacers for the centre of some of the cogs and also on the window. I have used a larger one and a pearl brad on the bow.
  • Next I cut the sentiment from the paper collection and added it to the top of the image.
  • By adding some decorative pearls on string and some Stickles glitter I have made this card really girly.
I hope I have inspired you today :)

Take care and have a wonderful weekend whatever your plans x
