A Simple Thank you Card

This card is a true example of simplicity – the image is a preprinted 4×6” card front from the Heartfelt Creations “Cottage Garden” (Hydrangeas) collection, that has a little scalloped edge around the center & some glittery accent sprinkled in it. The sentiment was easily stamped in, and then I just added some blue flowers and leaves on top of where they were in the image to give dimension.

Now go make your own! (Easy peasy!)

A Blue Thank You Card

I was looking at some of my cards, and realized that nearly all of them seem to be pink and/or purple shades! Granted these are my favorite colors to work with, but I love blues and turquoise too.

So I decided that I would hunt in my paper stash and find some blues…this paper comes from Heartfelt Creations Cottage Garden. I don’t actually have the Hydrangea flower dies, so I used my Dogwood stamps and dies instead! They turned out very similar, I think!

I also used the Rustic Sunflower to make the turquoise flowers (with the green prills for the centers). The light blue is he Classic Rose.

The sentiment of course is from Creative Embellishments. I have a few other elements for variety, as well.

I had to turn the card around so you could see the other flowers!
Here is a peek at the inside!

Hello Sunshine!

This is a conglomeration of several things in my stash. Of course I hand shaped the Peonies this afternoon, using Heartfelt Creations dies. I also used some of the Peony leaves, but I also had some leaves from my Graphic 45 set of dies (came with that really long tag) and of course the sentiment is from Creative Expressions. The paper is seriously just some from my stash – no name brand.

The metal elements are from Tim Holtz and G45 (the little clock). I needed to include the key for a challenge from “A Place to Start” April ‘22 DT inspiration, so that inspired me to add the little wreath and clock – I love doing things in 3’s, 5’s and 7s – gives it symmetry I suppose.

I mixed in a little tulle, some thin gold strings, and stuffed a lot of stamens in the flower centers.

I had a lot of fun creating this card – probably should’ve been doing housework or something, but this was way more fun!

Slimline Sweet Magnolias

This is an 8×4” slimline card using Heartfelt Creations Sweet Magnolia paper collection, and also some elements from Butterfly Dreams (the stamped sentiment, and the the lacy diecuts). I cut the square one 3 times and used lots of glue to stiffen it up.

I just love dimensional cards!
The bird way up top – fussy cut from a pack from Little Birdie Crafts.

The white flower is the large Ariana Blooms flower, and the Magnolias use two each of the large and medium petals.

The butterfly near the bottom is a Spellbinders die which I cut one of gold and one of white, and layered together.

The inside is die cut from the paper pack as well, and I used some glossy accents on it to make it stiffer. The sentiment is from a sticker pack I picked up at a local craft store.

I love adding details to the inside of my cards, as well as creating the lovely card front.

Wild Rose Happy Birthday Card

This is a shaped card, they are so fun to make and receive! This uses almost exclusively Heartfelt Creations products, with the exception of the sentiment, which is from Creative Expressions – I have several of their dies, and they are perfect for people like me who have messy handwriting!!

The paper is from HFC Sweet Peonies paper, and the die to create the shaped card is called the Fancy Classic Oval. Flowers and leaves are hand made, using the HFC dies, with a little ribbon tucked in for eye appeal.

I love the little fern like die there – it came in the most recent HFC Christmas collection, and I had no idea I’d use it so often when I first got it, but I seem to find a place for it all the time!!

I even used coordinating shaped paper for the inside, and I have to say, I love the way it turned out!!
