I was super excited to see that I won one of the monthly contests by Heartfelt Creations! Funny enough, on my FB post, I said that I already felt like a winner, because working on the flowers and playing with the beautiful paper helped me get out of a crafting slump!
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 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.
I made some cards for friends that we’ve been separated from during the pandemic & social distancing. Sometimes we can see our friends for lunch (outside seating!), sometimes not! So many people are going through a lot these days, so I’ve tried to give cards and a small treat to my friends, at least once a month. These are the ones I’ve made for them this week. (Plus some cupcakes!)
All of these use the Heartfelt Creations Regal Frames & Accents die, and the background paper is from my stash. The first one here has some yellow roses.
My second one is pink, with Double Petunias (I just love petunias!)
And the last one here is the Wild Aster. Asters are such a joy to make!
And now to make some cupcakes without eating them!
Playing with the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony paper, I’ve made several cards, and one little booklet. This is just beautiful paper, and I love making the peonies, they are a little bit easier than the rose. I’ve used a Graphic 45 large square tag just below.
The little card actually has what I like to call Azaleas for the flowers.
Below is Tag Folio – meaning that I took three long tags, folded up the bottoms to make pockets, and then created a little booklet or folio out of the,. The little folio has a peony, a rose, and several small blossoms that I made. I just love creating paper flowers! And the HFC die cuts make it so easy! I used lots of ribbon and some charms to doll it up. Isn’t it adorable? Slip a treat into one of the pockets, and it a sweet gift, as well.
