It's Your Special Day Heartfelt Creations card

Hello everyone.  Another week almost over and I just can't believe we only have a couple of weeks and most of us will be putting our Christmas decorations up....I love Christmas and always like mine up for the 1st of December :) A little early for some I know, but I really do love to make the most of them:)

I am busy prepping for the CHA which I am very pleased that I will be attending again in January :) I can't wait to meet everyone from Heartfelt Creations and work alongside them on the booth.... exciting times ahead:)  I am not sure if I will be on Create and Craft before Christmas, but I will let you know if I get any dates.

I hope you are all well and would like to thank you all for emailing in the shows.  It is a shame that they only read a few out, but I did recognise some of the names although I don't always get a chance to say hi:)

Today I would like to share a card using the All Geared Up collection.

  • For this card I have used the All Geared Up die set, the Nuts and Bolts precut stamp set and one of the panels from the paper collection.
  • I stamped the image onto some black card using some specialist glue and used some Cosmic Shimmer glitter.  Very effective and no colouring involved.
  • I adhered the panel onto the card which measures approximately 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" .  
  • I have ran some Cosmic shimmer glue down the edges of the card and added some of the glitter.
  • I die cut some of the cogs and sprockets in  a selection of silver, and black card and layered them up to create a flower.
  • I have also used one of the leave flourishes from the Cut Mat Create die set.
  • To finish off the card I have cut the sentiment from the paper collection and adhered it to the bottom right of the card with foam pads.
  • To finish off the card I have added some glitter to the sentiment and the flowers.
I will be back soon sharing some more gorgeous Heartfelt Creations collections, but until then take care everyone :) X

Romantique Sneak Peek

Hello everyone. I hope you are all well :) 
As promised I have another sneak peek of the new collection, Romantique which I will be launching on Create and Craft on Saturday at 11am.

  • I have used papers from the Romantique paper collection, the very sweet swan stamps which are in the Romantique Swans precut set which also have co-ordinating dies in the die set, the Bleeding Heart flowers from the Hearthrob precut stamp set that again come with co-ordinating dies.  I have also used the beautiful Heart flourish die which comes in two halves and when put together make a heart.
  • The decorative border is from the Cut Mat Create die set 2A.
  • I have used the Tim Holtz distress tool  around the edges of the papers and main card to create a little shabby vintage style to the card. Also adding some Tea Dye Distress ink to the edges.
  • I have used a grey copic pen to add a little shading to the swans and also added some Stickles glitter.
  •  To finish off the card I have added some lace and pearls.

Sorry for the very short post tonight.  I hope to be able to get to share another card with you all tomorrow.
Take care :) x

Romantique Collection Sneak Peek

A very good afternoon everyone.  It has been a while again since  I last blogged....I have been busy crafting from dawn until late prepping for this weekends shows.
Create & Craft Update
The dates and times have changed again, so I won't be on until Saturday now.  
The times are: Saturday 11am and Sunday 9am and 5pm.  As always these will also be repeated on the Craft Extra channel.

So I am thinking that you would all like to see a sneak peek of this once again gorgeous collection?
You are going to love it.  It has a very romantic feel about it as the name suggests:) The papers are in shades of beautiful pinks and greens. As always the papers are stunning and all co-ordinate beautifully with the 6 stamp sets. Also in the collection is a die set which includes a decorative heart, which is totally different than you may have seen before and also 2 cute swans which when sat together create a heart.....perfect for those Valentine, wedding, engagement and just because I love you cards and projects:) 
I am really looking forward to these know how much  I love anything girly and pink :)

The card that I am sharing today has been created using the Love Hangout precut stamp - HCPC 3639

  • This is a pretty quick card to make.
  • I have coloured the image in with chalk inks and distress markers and used some of the paper from the collection.
  • I die cut the image out with Spellbinders Classic Circle die.
  • The pretty daisy flourish is form the Cut Mat Create die set - 2A
  • The Sentiment is from one of the older Heartfelt Creations collections - HCPC Hydranga/Posy Branch prcut set which I die cut out with a Spellbinder die set.
  • To finish off the card I have added some decorative pearls around the image and some tiny pink pearls in the centre of the flowers.
This is just one of the beautiful stamps so I will be back tomorrow with another sneak peek:)

Take Care :) x
