Heartfelt Creations Wednesday Inspirations more than just a card....

Happy  Heartfelt Creations Wednesday everyone. It is finally Spring like here in  Southeast Michigan and with Spring we get green grass and with green grass we get the cows in the pastures and that makes me think of my childhood days on the farm. Nothing is better then fresh ice cold milk from the milk can and warm cookies. That is the thought behind this card.  I thought that this would be nice to give with a plate of cookies or the cookie in the jar mixes or perhaps a box of chocolates.

I stamped the  Milk Can from  HCPC 3517 Busy Bee PreCut stamp set three times and colored it in then I made a few  HCPC 3303 Posy Patch Flowers. I used card stock and  I used the versatile Sunny Day Paper Collection to make both  my flowers and my leaves. The leaves were made from  HCPC 3410 Decorative Basket PreCut. The leaves and posy were cut with the coordinating dies found at Heartfelt Creations.

For the complete printable instructions visit the Heartfelt Creations blog.

This card would be great for upcoming Mothers Day. The flowers remind me of Zinnias. What do they remind you of?

For this card I used Kraft Paper and HCDP1 232 Balmy Breeze Paper Collection. I find it so nice not to have to decide on color combinations. With Heartfelt Creations paper collections the hard part is done. If  you desire to change up the colors then  customize the paper with your color pallet.

Heartfelt Creations Wednesday Inspiration

I think that spring is here. Today the sun was out and the birds were chirping great inspiration for this Heartfelt Creations .

This beautiful bird and branch  is from the the precut stamp set  HCPC 3523 Feathered Friends all I  did was perch the bird in front of the window. I turned  HCPC 3443 Palace Entry into a window on a stucco wall. Then I added a few HCPC 3502 Mini Vintage Floret and cut them with their matching die. This just makes me glad that it is spring.

Heartfelt Creations Endless Inspirations

The days are getting longer and the nights are getting shorter a sure sign of Spring.  I really enjoy getting home from work when it is still day light. I get re-energized like when I eat an apple.

  Heartfelt Creations has  stamp sets that you can mix and match and you know I like that. I filled this bucket from HCPC 3516 Antique Essentials PreCut set with apples from HCPC 3487 Classic Additions PreCut set then added the fence from HCPC 3465 Palisade Farmstead  PreCut set then put some ponies in the  pasture from HCPC 3456 Western Bronco PreCut set and found the perfect sentiment from HCPC 3458  Western Collage PeCut set.  I made the perfect masculine burlap layer from HCPC 3515 Burlap Background PreCut set.  I am trying to get the horses to come up to the fence.  We can all have an apple it is a real pick me up.

Please stop by the Heartfelt Creations blog to see the designers delightful combinations.

Thanks a bunch for stopping by here is a card  I made to express myself.

Detailed instructions can be found at the Heartfelt Creations blog.

Have a wonderful week!
