Heartfelt Creations Design Team


Is it a Trick or is it a Treat?   On this Hallows Eve it is most definitely a Treat for me. WOO HOO, YIPPEE, HURRAY!  I made the Heartfelt Creations Design Team.  They have incredible  stamps, and matching dies not to mention life like flowers. The stamps and matching dies are as easy as one, two, three to use. Stamp, line it up, cut. Perfection! I want to thank everyone who inspires me.

Autumn is in the air and it is time to give Thanks!

It is a grey day today in Michigan, where I live. The wind is shaking the  last golden leaves that remained on the trees branches.  As I glance out the window and watch  the changes  that appear I  think of the many people, places and things I am thankful for.

I had stamped this image from The Stampsmith on a piece of glossy card stock many moons ago. Last night I added color to it with distress inks via a q-tip. I had Pheasant feathers on my table. I have wanted to use these for awhile.  Growing up in the 60's we had  an abundance of Pheasants  in Michigan. Now it is rare that I see one. They have beautiful feathers.  I have many fond memories of Autumn days and my brothers hunting and the Pheasants they would bring home.  I made a few Mums using Heartfelt Creations  Delicate Asters stamp and matching die.  I added  a flourish and mats using Spellbinders dies. I made a couple of stick pins with beads I had. I dyed some seam binding  using the distress inks dried it and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls.   I sprayed Perfect Pearls on my flowers and leaves. When everything was good and dry I put it all together. 
I am thankful that my Good Lord as  given me  the direction to express my individuality.

Bridal Shower Card

My BFF's son is getting married.  I was invited to a lovely Bridal Shower in Northern Michigan. The  trees were at their peak so it was a great color show.  Here is the card I made. The colors for the wedding are navy blue and yellow.

 I used the CTMH cricut cartridge to cut the roses, then I sponged them with  distress ink and rolled and shaped them. The leaves and vine are a Cheery Lynn die. I used 5 different Spellbinders dies. My bow was made with my Craft-Dee BowZ tool and PTI ribbon.  The colored paper is from PTI and the pattern paper is Kate and Company.  The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread. I added a little crystal effects and  bling and she was done.
