Introducing Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fleur Collection

We are pleased to introduce the Sun Kissed Fleur Collection from Heartfelt Creations. This collection includes 2 dies: the Gift Ensemble die (yes, you can make a fancy box with this die!) and the Sun Kissed Fleur die which cuts out 10 different flowers at a time. How's that for value?
The paper collection, called Sun Kissed Collection, comes in vibrant aquas and oranges and fades to light greens and yellows. The paper pack comes with 24 12 x 12 papers that have designs on both sides and are acid & lignen free. There are 2 sheets per design; some are dramatic; others are subdued.
You also have a wonderful selection of floral stamps to choose from: fancy tags, an overflowing basket, beautiful patterned backgrounds, borders and corners.

Leave a comment on the Heartfelt Creations blog by May 14th and you will be eligible to win the entire release valued at $180.91

I really, really love this collection, and I know you will too! So here is my card showcasing the new collection -

You're the Best 6 x 6 card
Cut a card base from the Gold Luster Glossy Cardstock, and set aside.  Take a 5 3/4" square of patterned paper and stamp the images from the Sun Kissed Fleur Swirls directly onto the patterned papers. Add Lime Twist Smooch Glitz to the leaf and vine areas of the image.  Stamp and die cut the Sun Kissed Fluers from patterned papers and the Striped Sun Kissed Fleurs from the Gold Metallic Vellum. Add some color to the petals using the Dried Marigold ink. Shape the flowers,  add  Smooch Glitz Goldrush to the centers, and finish with a pearl.  Glue to match up with the stamped images on the base paper. Die cut the vines from the Gift Ensemble Die, and add to the flower clusters.  Use the small flower die in that set to die cut and stamp the tiny flowers.  Add them to the vines and finish with pearl centers. Stamp the tag, fussy cut, and cut away the right side, so that it can be nestled behind the flowers. Stamp the sentiment and adhere with foam adhesives.  Add stamped/cut flowers to the tag. Finish with ribbon bow.

Dream with Hampton Art and Authentique

I was so excited to see Hampton Art pairing up with Authentique to bring you some fabulous stamps.  I found these were really easy to incorporate into a fun layout.


On the yellow panel, I added some texture stamping using the Art Warehouse PS0712 wooden stamp.  This just added a little bit more depth.

I stamped elements from the Authentique set – Keep Me Posted  IC0231, and fussy cut them and used to layer around the photos using foam adhesives.

You're Simply Sweet with WorldWin Papers

When I saw these WorldWin  -  Original ColorMates papers together, the first thing that came to mind was Neapolitan ice cream! So hopefully, you will see my inspiration as well.

 In this one simple card, you can see how great the paper is for die-cutting, embossing, stamping and paper piecing.

Hip Hip Hooray

Hi! I hope you had a nice weekend.  It did not stop raining all weekend long here - so I thought a bright, cheerful card might do the trick to add a little sunshine.
