Fairies Fairies Fairies!

Last one I swear – just kidding, I have a whole pack of G45’s Fairy Wings paper that my sweetie gave me for Christmas, and I plan on using every last sheet of it, one way or another!!

This is another combination of G45 products and Heartfelt Creations – by this time, you have already figured out the HFC flower dies are what I use almost exclusively for my flowers, and these are the Sweet Magnolias and Cherry Blossoms. The other HFC element is the light blue circle around the fairies – it is actually the “waste” from one of the Centerpiece dies – which I cut out of heavy white cardstock, AND some shiny blue paper to give dimension to it, and frame the fairies.

Just a close up of the fairies and flowers.

Aaaand the inside. G45 often will have a “collectors pack” or “deluxe pack” with their papers that includes bonus stickers which are fun little things – sometimes I pop them up on some chip board for dimension, sometimes not.

Thanks for stopping by!

Playing Around with Christmas Gifts

I was gifted with Graphic 45’s Fairy Wings paper, and two cute “Centerpiece” dies from Heartfelt Creations for Christmas this year – just had to have a go!

This first one actually has some paper from Fairy Dust, but he image is from the Fairy Wings. That white lacy piece is one of he dies from HFC. Flowers are by “moi” – lovingly hand shaped using HFC wild rose dies, and small clematis dies.

Here’s the inside.

This next card is 99% Heartfelt Creations, using their Peonies paper collection. I just had to add a bow, lol! Very very similar, but sometimes to post on certain FB pages, 90% of the project has to be using their products.

Here’s the inside.
Isn’t she a beauty? I really like how the color turned out on this rose.

Rustic Sunflowers the Easy Way

This beautiful card was created using what one might call “minimal skill level” – of course it does help to have purchased the divine dies from Heartfelt Creations, but then, all one must do, is locate the flowers in the paper pad, cut, and gently curl the petals, then glue into place! No stamping, ink or coloring required – perfect every time!

I’m truly in love with the Arched Gateway dies, and I just felt like kraft (brown) cardstock went so well with the Fall theme. And bows! Gotta have me a pretty bow in the corner, almost every time!

Rustic Sunflowers (and Daisies)

A beautiful way to celebrate the fall, yellow, blue, and white, with some greenery mixed in!
This card was super simple, just make a couple of lacey borders with the …………die, cut and color your sunflowers and daisies (I actually used the Wild Aster die to make my daisies), add some leaves and glue them on! Presto, a beautiful card that is sure to impress.

Another sure winner from the Heartfelt Creations artists!

One Last Christmas Card

Last one this year, I promise! Using G45’s “Christmas Time “ paper, and handmade flowers and a die from Heartfelt Creations.

I know there isn’t a poinsettia here, but the pale pink Magnolias and deep red Rose go together well, I think. Here’s the inside:

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Graphic 45 “Time for Christmas” – A Few Cards

I fell in love with this paper – I am in love with Steampunk, and adding Santa with poinsettias to the mix, was just too much to pass up!

The above card is my absolute favorite one, not sure why, maybe I liked the flowers I made a little better, not sure, but I sure had fun! I grabbed some “floral picks” up from Hobby Lobby to fill in the foliage around the flowers, they came with large berries and tiny pinecone, that added just the right touch!

This card (above and below) is fun because it is something to interact with – you kind of twist the top part, and it props itself up (see right at “tis the Season” – mounted on a bit thicker cardstock), but also opens up even beyond this for a message or sentiment page.

Loads of fun, a little fiddly – I really like the cardstock clock on this as well. Absolutely gorgeous paper!

Winter Wonderland Christmas Cards

I love my Heartfelt Creations Papers! This particular paper pad is being discontinued after this year, so sad, because these penguins are just too cute!!

I’m also in love with the little polar bear!
Here’s the inside!

I have another little card I made from this collection, it’s got quite a bit more folds to it, but is super cute:

Hurry on over to the Heartfelt Creations website, and you might be able to score yourself some of this cute paper before they run out!!

So Glad We’re Friends

https://thefourseasonschallenge.blogspot.com/2021/11/november-anything-goes-fall.html

This is my entry for the “Anything Goes” Fall (November) Four Seasons Challenge. I had to interrupt my Christmas Card production, but was itching for an excuse to make some of my “Rustic Sunflowers” again, as I just recently got the cool Redlands Elements “prills” to use for their centers!

I actually went to Hobby Lobby and found some pumpkin stickers, which I mounted on white cardstock to add some dimension to them, and then fussy cut them out.

The paper is from Heartfelt creations “Dazzling Dahlia”, and the dies are HFC as well as the flowers. I love to stiffen and gloss my flowers with “Diamond Glaze” – another Hobby Lobby find, that makes the paper much less resistant to losing its shape. The sentiment die was found on “Dies Are Us” website, sorry I don’t remember the artist – perhaps Sue Wilson.

Thanks for dropping by!

More Christmas Cards

I’m having trouble getting in the mood to make. Christmas cards this year, because it’s nice and warm here if Florida! Not that I’m complaining!! I’m basically just using Graphic 45 papers this year, although I have to admit 99% of the flowers a made using Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies.

That being said, this is one of my more recent cards using “Joy to the World” by G-45.

First Santa Card (ever, for me)!

This is my favorite card so far this Christmas Season. It’s also my very first Santa themed card. This is a retired paper pad from Graphic 45, and unfortunately I could only find one 8” x 8” paper pad.

This involved a lot of “cut and paste” in an attempt to conserve paper. Luckily, I know how to make flowers and bows, so they covered up where some of the paper joins are.

Cute little striped ribbon, purchased locally, it’s wired to help it hold its shape!

So I made 6 little “wild roses” – the white ones, 2 red rosebuds, and then the full rose – all from Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose dies. Didn’t even bother to stamp them, but I did gloss them up a bit.

Plenty of room to add a Heartfelt message for your recipient.

This is the inside of the card – the paper pad has two entire sheets of these little “stamps”, and the stamp was found at a local craft store several years ago.

Thanks for stopping by….it’s almost the weekend, so I’ve gotta get back to the craft desk!
