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

Evening Nikki, really enjoyed your shows as always, lovely design set but I've had to resist this time, however I'm well on my way to finishing my Christmas cards using the Heartfelt papers and the lovely candle and flourish stamps I'm really pleased with them. Love the colours on today's card.

  11. Hi Nikki

  12. Hi Nikki and co.
    This is a dark card but the contrasting paper and beautiful shade of glitter 'wakes' it up and gives it the wow factor.
    Im not a grungy or steam punky kinda lass but the way you put what is predominatly male subjects together is so clever and can immediatly turn it into a lovely female kind of card. Do I make sence ?
    Have a good weekend Kim n Co.
