Birds and Blooms Inspiration

Wishing you all a very good Sunday afternoon :)  It is a beautiful Spring like day here in makes such a difference when the sun is shining don't you think? 

I am busy working on the next collection which I will be bringing to Create and Craft on 26th February with a One Day Wonder....shush though as I don't think I am supposed to tell you hehe :)

Today I have decided to share a few cards with you using the Birds and Blooms Collection as I have so many and I haven't blogged only one of them.  So I won't be adding a tutorial as I usually do as it would be a very long post.  However if any of you have any questions on them please add it in the comments and I will get back to you:)

Isn't this a pretty collection :)  I love the dies and matching stamps as these are ones that I know I will use on many of my cards not just on cards/projects that I make with this collection.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :)

Birds and Blooms Inspiration and Blog Candy Winners

Hello everyone xxx 
Yes I know....what a surprise for you all to see that I have finally blogged again:)
Without going into to much detail I decided to take a break from blogging due to lots of family commitments.
I am back though and am looking forward to sharing lots of creations with you:)
Thank you all so much for sticking by me and waiting patiently for me to come means so much to me :) X

As you all know I have had a very busy few months.... the most amazing few months in fact:)  Spending the week with my Heartfelt Creations family over in California at CHA was just the best time ever and many of you may of seen the pictures that I posted over on Facebook.
What do you think to the new packaging?  I think it is just gorgeous:)....of course I love the colour pink so that helps.
I have also been doing lots of USA shows some which have been pre recorded and some that have gone out live which has been a great experience and feels so unreal when we receive emails from our fellow crafters over in America:) 

My next UK shows are this Sunday the 8th Feb at 10am and 5pm.  The shows will consist of the Birds and Blooms collection and also the Butterfly Medley collection.....I am loving these collections as who can resist birds and butterflies :)

Blog Candy Winner
It may seem a while ago but I launched a blog candy on my last post and I apologize for taking so long to announce the winner.  As it has been so long and I have decided to announce 2 winners:)
The 1st winner is Stephanie Cunningham....Congratulations xxx
The 2nd winner is Kathy Rackley....Congratulations xxx
If you email me your details I will send you both a beautiful Heartfelt Creations paper pad, a stamp and also some gorgeous Hobby House goodies :)

I have used the gorgeous Birds and Blooms collection for this card.....this is one of my favourite stamp images from the collection:)

  • I have used a 6 1/2" square card base and one of the decorative panels from the paper collection.
  • I stamped the Bird Bath image and coloured it in using Chameleon pens.
  • I cut the image out using a Spellbinder oval die.
  • I stamped 6 individual Hydrangeas and fussy cut them out. I also stamped some blossoms, leaves, branches and fluffy birds die cut them out. I coloured them to match the main image.
  • I added the image to the left of the card using foam pads and added all the elements to frame the bottom half of it.
  • I cut the sentiment from the paper pad and adhered it to the bottom right of card using foam pads.
  • I have made a double bow with some pale pink organza ribbon and added this to the top right of the image.
  • Finally I have added some Stickles glitter to finish.

That's all from me today.... It is nice to be back and I promise I will be back very soon :)
Take Care X
