Good morning everyone!  Welcome to a windy and rainy East Tennessee.  We have had so much rain here in the Tennessee Valley that we are building a boat.  We have only had one little bit of snow and then just rain and more rain.  I declare I think my toes are beginning to web!

Other Products: White Cardstock, Dimensional Tape, Spectrum Noir Marker PL4, Crafter's Companion Gemini, Vagabond
For more tips on creating with the Burst of Spring collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/_8WJPTKIUlQ.
Instructions: My card is 5 X 7". Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection. I also covered the inside of the card with the same paper but you could use a coordinating color of the paper. Use the Eyelet Border Basic Die and cut a wavy edge down the 7" side of the card front. Take a piece of white cardstock and using the Eyelet Border Basic Die and the Fleur Border Basics Die and cut a scalloped piece to glue down the front of the card base. Once this piece is glued down, glitter the white edge of the card front and set aside to dry.
Using Jet Black Archival Ink stamp the frame and using the coordinating die cut it out. Color the frame using the marker and color the leaves and buds with the Dove Blender Pen and inks. Use the dimensional tape to pop up the frame a bit from the card front to give it more dimension. Now set the card aside while we work on the flowers.
Stamp the flowers with Archival Deep Purple and Memento Lulu Lavender inks. Color them with the same colors of inks. Next run the flower petals through the mold and the Vagabond 2 and then set aside to dry. Glue Prills to the center of the flowers and then glitter the edges and set aside to dry. Once the flowers are dry glue them to the frame on the front of the card.

Let's face it friends, we are all just a bit tired of winter and all the cold and snow and brown and mud so let's celebrate the highly anticipated arrival of the upcoming spring season with the new Burst of Spring Collection from Heartfelt Creations! A favorite among flower enthusiasts, the delicate pansy flower is often one of the first florets to be added to the freshly worked soil as the glorious garden season arrives. The soft, velvety petals of these cheerful blossoms always invite a quick caress while being transplanted near the front of the garden bed, where they are sure to be admired by all! Awaken your senses dulled from the winter season with an enchanting and deeply hued decorative paper collection filled with sweet and amiable pansy flowers, along with whimsical fluttering butterflies! Beautiful blues, happy yellows and deep purples set the tone for charming pansy clusters and bouquets encompassed in finely illustrated details from lace like accents to intricate brocades! A wonderful compilation of beautifully detailed cling stamp sets and coordinating dies bring an assortment of sprightly pansy floral sprays, perky arrangements, as well as elegant pansy frames, perfect for adding a cheerful springtime feel to all of your handmade greeting cards, layouts and altered art pieces. The coordinating pansy flower stamp, die, and flower shaping mold come together to create several differing sized pansy flowers ideal for creating your very own dimensional pansy bouquets as realistic as those found in the flower bed! So, join together with us in craft rooms everywhere…before the frost is out of the ground and gardening season arrives…as we anticipate and create our very own version of the appearance of spring with the Burst of Spring Collection!

For more tips on creating with the Burst of Spring collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/_8WJPTKIUlQ.
Instructions: My tag size is 4 x 6". Using the Album Tags and Accents Dies, cut out two of the larger tags from black cardstock. Glue these together. It makes for a very sturdy tag and it will stand up to adding a lot of weight and it will be harder to damage the tag in transit. Now cut out a smaller die from this set using the paper collection and glue it to the base tag. I punched a hole in the top of the tag and threaded a piece of purple ribbon through. Next, I cut out the medallion using white cardstock and then I also cut out the shadow piece using purple cardstock. Glue these two pieces together and set aside.
Now let's work on the flowers. Using Deep Purple Archival ink and Lulu Lavender Memento ink, stamp the flower petals onto white cardstock. Stamp the leaves using the Olive Green Stazon ink. Color using different ink colors to suit your taste. Using the coordinating die, cut out the petals and leaves and place them onto the3D Shaping Mold and spritz with water then run through the Vagabond machine. Lay out to dry. Once dry, add Prills to the centers and glitter and again, allow to dry.
Stamp the Pansy Spray using Jet Black Archival Ink and color in with the daubers and the Dove Blender Pen. Add the flowers to the spray and then using dimensional tape, adhere to the medallion. Glue the medallion onto the bottom of the tag creating a pocket.
Find one of the tags on the paper collection and cut out using the Ticket and Tags Die. Punch a hole in the tag and thread some of the purple ribbon through the small tag. Stamp the sentiment onto the tag and then place it into the pocket.
My Second project for this morning is a card:

Color using different ink colors to suit your taste. Using the coordinating die, cut out the petals and leaves and place them onto the3D Shaping Mold and spritz with water then run through the Vagabond machine. Lay out to dry. Once dry, add Prills to the centers and glitter and again, allow to dry.
Stamp the floral image using Jet Black Archival Ink onto white cardstock and color using various inks and the Dove Blender Pen as well as the Stack and Store Daubers. Layer molded leaves over the image and glue down. Add the flowers to the image and add dimensional Tape to the back Set aside while you prepare the base for the medallion.
Die cut the Medallion from a piece of the paper collection. Find another piece of coordinating paper and cut out the layering piece. Glue them together. Add dimensional tape to the back and adhere to the card front. Next adhere the floral piece to the medallion and your card is ready to go.

Debuting the Lacy Diamond Dies with Heartfelt Creations.....

Good morning friends and welcome to a cold and snowy East Tennessee morning!  The temps have dipped to 16 with a wind chill of 7 this morning and we have about an inch of snow on the ground here.  We don't receive a lot of snow in these parts anymore so an inch or two brings on great excitement but the big news here is the cold!  We have had some moderating temps up until now and a lot of my friends have reported that early Spring bulbs were beginning to sprout. I'm sure they will be late in blooming now because of the cold on the tender plants.  So I have some tulips to share with you that the cold won't hurt.  They are displayed against the new Lacy Diamond Dies from Heartfelt Creations and I feel like these dies are the perfect backdrop for a lovely bunch of flowers!  They have gone the extra mile with these dies and I can see these being displayed on my cards for a long time!  Can you tell I just love them?  

Also if you visit the Heartfelt Creations site you will notice there is a Design Team Call going on now until Feb. 27.  If you have an interest in this just follow this link and read all about it! Heartfelt Creations

Good morning everyone!  It's been a cold few days here in East Tennessee but we are beginning to moderate a bit.  We haven't had much snow to speak of and I long for some beautiful white stuff.  I love looking out my craft room window to see it snow and watching the birds at my feeder.  It just makes me a happy girl.  

Now down to the business at hand!  We are talking about tulips in the house!  They definitely scream Spring and Heartfelt Creations Tulip Time Collection  has made it easy to create a lovely card for someone special!
