Hello Friends! Hope you are having a great week. I am very excited to introduce to you the beautiful and unique Peacock Paisley Collection from Heartfelt Creations! Brighten your world with the sparkling colors and mesmerizing motifs of Peacock Paisley, the exquisite spring release from Heartfelt Creations. This lush collection sparkles with jewel tones of topaz, sapphire, amber, emerald and turquoise. The artistic flair of exotic peacocks, intricate paisleys, frilled feathers and delightful daisies will captivate your imagination and energize your creativity. Six sumptuous sets of intricately designed, deeply etched red rubber stamps are the perfect companions to a vibrant paper collection that is overflowing with card fronts, cut apart pages, vivid artwork, pre-designed layouts and beautifully layered backgrounds. The Delightful Daisy Die cuts 7 perfect floral layers with one pass through your cutting system. Whether you want to preserve life's most beautiful moments, create with mixed media techniques or design keepsake cards, you'll be proud as a peacock to present the sophisticated elegance of Peacock Paisley. Here is my first project .... Here are a few close-ups.....

Now you will fold the top part of this little scalloped circle in half (this creates the easel for each card) Adhere the bottoms of the three scalloped circles together to form your card.

Hello Friends! I am so excited to share with you that I have been invited to join the design team for Pink Ink Stamps! Peggy Jo Ackley is the owner/illustrator of Pink Ink Stamps. Pink Ink Stamps acquired the wonderful designs of Karen Lockhart, too. These stamps are wood mounted, red rubber stamps and they are such wonderful quality. Here is my first project showcasing Pink Ink Stamps...... I stamped the Folk Art Flowers image 3 times using Espresso Truffle Memento Ink onto white cardstock and colored them with my copic markers. Using a Tonic Layering Square die, I die cut them out and mounted them onto a matching Tonic Scalloped Layering square die. I stamped the sentiment Saying Prayers onto white cardstock and hand cut the banner. I used an EK Success edge punch on the yellow cardstock layer and added the yellow gingham bow to finish the card! Here is a close-up This was a fun and relaxing card to create! I hope that who ever I send this card too will feel happy and bright, just like my card! Hope you will check out Pink Ink Stamps!

I layered a strip of white cardstock that I used a scalloped edge punch on across the card and tied the ribbon around that portion. I added the sentiment and stamped the little paw onto a circle of white cardstock to complete the card. Here is a different view...... Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hello friends! Happy Friday! Hope you have something fun planned for this weekend. I really don't have too many plans but one of my daughters is coming home from college for the weekend and I am praying the weather doesn't get bad like the weather men are saying. Of course, I don't believe the weather people very much but you just never know, do you? Well I have a pretty and simple card to share with you today using another stamp from the newest release from Heartfelt Creations. This stamp is called the Birds and Blooms Collage and it's really pretty! This was pretty simple to make.....just stamp the collage stamp 2 times onto white cardstock using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink. The one you use on the card, just fussy cut around everything and then using a sponge, ink the edges with brown ink. The second image you color the birdie and butterflies then fussy cut just those out. Adhere them onto the card using 3d foam squares to give them some pop and add some stickles for glitter! Super easy, right? I think this is so pretty! I just love that cute little birdie, too! Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a great weekend! Continue reading

Hello Friends! Hope you had a great week! The weather here has been just awesome and we have been enjoying a few days of sunshine and warmer temps! It is great! Hope you have been experiencing the same but I know those of you that are on the east coast are really getting some nasty weather. Please stay safe and warm! Today I want to share with you a fun and easy card I created using Heartfelt Creations newest release Birds and Blooms Collection. I needed a fun card for a friend so using a cardfront from the Birds and Blooms Paper Collection, I created this card. Using a Circle die, I cut out the middle of one of these cards fronts. Then using the other cardfront, I mounted the circle using some 3d foam squares. In each paper collection, there are two sheets of the same design! I also fussy cut the flowers and leaves out of one of the cardfronts and popped those up using foam squares, too. I added crystal stickles for some glitter and that was it! Here are the sheets of paper I used from the collection...... I really love how you can create quick and easy cards and other projects using the card fronts that are included in each Heartfelt Creations Paper Collections! Also I wanted to remind you that the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge for January is still going on! Be sure to check it out! It's a really fun challenge! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend! Continue reading
