Two Cards from the Weekend

Work has been so crazy lately, I forget to post my photos! I craft all weekend (like a crazy woman!) so I have two to share with you today – insides too. I found some VERY large shaker box kits from Creative Embellishments and was trying to figure out a way to use them.

The first card is from Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peonies paper – my all time favorite (so far! have you seen the sneak peak of the Elegant Rose? woah!)

I fussy cut this from one of the 12×12 sheets – such gorgeous artwork!!
I didn’t add a sentiment, because I’m not sure what this card will be used for.

and the second card uses their Rustic Sunflower from last fall.

Thanks for looking!

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!

Thanks for stopping by!

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!

So Glad We’re Friends

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. It also will bring the color of your ink out more too, if you want a deeper color. The sentiment die is from Creative Expressions, I believe Sue Wilson is the artist – she is frankly amazing, just like Linda Bontrager at Heartfelt Creations.

Thanks for dropping by!
