Heartfelt Creations Love

Now that Christmas is past we can start to look for other reasons to create, how about Valentine's Day. Heartfelt Creations Timeless Amour Collection lets you do just that. Here is a bold colorful tag that I made.

The rainbow of colors brings thoughts of sunshine in the winter.

You can see the Lattice Heart behind the Posy and Daisy
The Ornate Heart Die makes an excellent topper to any tag.
By using the  Sticky Tape Sheets it makes it easy to cut an intricate die and apply glitter

 Another close up of the detail. There are endless possibilities with Heartfelt Creations PreCut Stamps and Coordinating Dies. Here I used the leaf form the Delicate Asters because I thought that it looked so close to the leaves of a Daisy. I hope that this has inspired you to create your own Valentine.

Today I have for  you a warm and cozy Heartfelt Creations  card. Notice the quilt made with the  hexagon pattern.  This card may look fussy but it is not hard to put together. With the holidays and  children around the house, let each one have a crank at your die cut machine. Helps to get the hexagons cut really quick.

I used the rose flourish stamp  for my quilt pieces, just stamp, color and cut with the  hexagon die.

 I made the stick pin to match my  card. The ribbon was dyed to match the roses.
