Hidden Pocket Cards

These cards were sort of copied from cards I saw on the Heartfelt Creations Facebook page.

This first one is using their Wild Roses paper, which I think may be my all time favorite of their papers! Also, it is extremely difficult to mess up on making the Wild Rose.

The second card is using their Calla Lily paper…….I just love the swans! I’m not so enamored of Calla Lilies, but the artwork is just beautiful.

Each of these has a hidden little pocket for a gift card, the best part!

I hope you enjoy, and feel inspired to duplicate this on your own!

Steampunk Mini-Album

It’s been quite a while since I made a Mini-Album, not sure if this was due to some depression from the Pandemic, because I have several Mini-Album already (gathering dust, instead of photographs, lol!) or if it was simply because I hadn’t come across any new paper that just “spoke” to me. This is an album I plan on keeping, and plan on filling with photos of my family demonstrating their “daring do”.

I have a need inside myself, to not be remembered as some old lady who sat in a chair crocheting baby blankets, but rather as a person who took life by the horns, and lived! So this album will be full of those kind of photos, and not just of me, but of my husband and kids, and some of our adventures.

I hope you enjoy this mini-album, and are inspired to make not only your own album, but to have adventures, and experience the joys of this life!

Valentines Card

A Valentines card for my Sweetie using Heartfelt Creations new “gateway” dies, a few blossom, and swans from their Calla Lily paper collection. I added a bit of glitter to the swans on the front, probably overdid it!

Here are the close ups:

Probably too much glitter on the front swans, and it is very red, but I hope you like it!

Thinking of You Card

Today is the anniversary of my fathers death 4 years ago. It’s still hard on all of us, despite our getting to keep him for 80 years. I made this little card for my mom, who lives 12 hours away from me, alone with her 2 cats, and German Shepherd.

I used Mintay’s “Dreamer” paper, and dressed it up with some flowers I created this morning, the “Roses” are just made using an old Martha Stewart punch, the little tiny lavender flowers from a generic punch as well, and the leaves are from a G45 die. The silver oval is an Heartfelt Creations die cut that I trimmed a little bit to show more of the pretty paper.

If you prop it just so, it is an easel card as well. I hope you like it!

This Card is so Extra!

Using a mix of papers from Heartfelt Creations, I’ve created a very special card, for a very special someone. This card has tags, and room for a Special photo, (or two) as well!

These little birdies are just so stinkin’ cute!! Also I’m in love with all the decorative Lacey dies, and you can see I incorporated several in this card. Here is a little video for you to see.

Shabby Chic cards

Just a couple of designs, mixing it up, and trying for the Shabby chic look.

I used several doily type die cuts, gossamer ribbon, and Vellum flowers on one of them, the other has a standard paper flowers in the center and vellum for the others, all handmade, using the Heartfelt Creations dies, of course!

I just love this lacy die (white piece)

I even used vellum for the butterflies!

Paper is some Tim Holz I found at Tuesday Morning, it’s about 5”x 8” and has a fabric feel to it – very interesting and fun to work with.

Beautiful Asters on a Lacy Card

Heartfelt Creations came out with some beautiful and ornate dies at Thanksgiving last year, they are called “Gateway” dies.

Using two different selections, paper from my stash, and previously made Asters, I played around a little bit this morning.

No ribbons on this card. The blossom are made from wired “posies” that you can pull off in about 5 minutes.

The inside sentiment

Finish off with a sentiment, and your card is done!

Merry Christmas Card

Merry Christmas everybody! This is my final card of the season, I have a lot of company coming this week, and really must clean off my desk!

This is an easel card, using a retired Heartfelt Creations paper collection – I am really upset with myself for not buying more of it before they retired it! I just love the cardinals, especially since our yard is full of them!

There are a couple of photos here to show more detail, enjoy!
