Heartfelt Creations tag you are it.

Today I have a tag for you. It is really easy for me to create with Heartfelt Creations stamps and coordinating dies.  I  used the Vintage Watering Can on this tag to show you  where the watering can sits at my place. It sits near my hanging flower baskets.  This hanging flower basket was made using the  Decorative Metal Fixtures Die a perfect weathered wrought iron basket and hanging pole. The background was made by sponging on Viva Decor 3D Stamp Paint  it has texture and a shimmer. I even sponged it on the Vintage Watering Can and the flowers show through so that I could color with markers. You can get the Viva Decor3D Stamp Paint at Heartfelt Creations along with your stamps and dies and that is as good as it gets.

For unbelievable inspiration from the HC designers stop at the Heartfelt Creations blog

Thank you so very much for stopping by.

Heartfelt Creations Swans

Today I have for you a beautiful  Golden 50th Anniversary card. I  used  the die and stamps from Heartfelt Creations  newly released Sweet Serenity Collection and the Open Vintage Floret and coordinating die.
When I glanced at the Swans the very first thought that ran through my mind is that Swans mate for life. I thought that they would make a gorgeous 50th Anniversary card.

This close up is to show you the versatility of the Vintage Floret Precut  stamp and coordinating die. Both the vintage rose and the blossom are made from the Vintage Floret stamp and die. You can see that they are two very different looking  flowers from the same stamp and die and that is one of the many reasons that I am so passionate about my Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies. I really appreciate the fact that there is more then one way to use the stamps and dies.

Please stop by the Heartfelt Creations blog for more inspiration.

Heartfelt Wednesday Trifecta

Today I have for you a trifecta.  I have mixed and matched old and new PreCut  stamp sets and  their coordinating dies from Heartfelt Creations.

My first card is a Sympathy Card. I love the background I used  HCPC 3510 Petite Flora Swirls. Can you name the other stamp sets and coordinating dies  that I used from Heartfelt Creations? There are three other stamp sets with coordinating dies that accompany the Petite Flora Swirls.  The answer can be found here at Heartfelt Creations Blog , find this card and you will have them.

In this card I used HCPC 3512  Antique Lantern and the DP is from HCDP1 Countryside Evening Paper Collection. I made a  really sharp frame with the DP and a gold leaf pen.

For this card I used  three stamp sets  plus a sentiment set. I mixed the old with the new and you should too. The stamp sets that I used  for my main image  are  HCPC 3517 Busy Bee , HCPC 3516 Antique Essentials and HCPC 3463 Western Elements the sentiment set is HCPC 3354 Classic Message

 For detailed instructions  please visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog or Gallery where you can view my creations and all the other designers. Did you know that you can print the recipes/instructions for each project in the galleries ( Cards, Scrapbook Layouts and Altered Art) and save them for when you need a little motivation or to jump start your creative mojo.

Have a wonderful week and I will see you next Wednesday.
