Winter Snowman.....

Good morning friends!  I hope you are keeping safe and well!  This morning I'm here to share with you my very first Christmas card for 2021!  I know I can't believe it myself.  I'm hoping to keep making them along and when December comes maybe, just maybe I will be ready!  



I used the sweet snowman and gifts  from the Countryside Cottage Collection from Heartfelt Creations and the sentiment is from my stash.  When Heartfelt Creations created this collection they made so many of us so happy.  It has something for every season.  Everything was watercolored with Zig Colored Markers and a water brush.  Super easy and lots of fun!

Just For You Sunflowers....

Good morning everyone from a very chilly East Tennessee!  I'm here to share with you another card I made using the Heartfelt Creations Countryside Garden Collection and inspired by Tracey Fehr.  Thank you Tracey, you have me started making these cards and I love that I can mail with just one stamp! This is just another way to use the Countryside Garden Collection for quick and easy cards!


I stamped the image with Memento Rich Cocoa onto watercolor paper and colored with my Zig markers and a water brush.  The sentiment is stamped with Archival Jet Black ink and the sunflowers have Express-O Yourself Prills in the center!

Inspiration Wednesday With Heartfelt Creations...Chilly Winter Evening...

Good Wednesday morning everyone!  Hope you are well.  This morning I'm here to share another card made using the Heartfelt Creations Countryside Cottage Collection.  This collection is so useful for creating for all seasons and it will be kept handy for my reach so I can use it over and over again!

 

Other Products: Die Cut Machine, Prismacolor pencils (PC912, PC941, PC930, PC904, PC735 1/2, PC1023, PC938, PC1063, PC906, PC935, PC918) Crayola Tan, Blending Stumps, Gamsol, White Cardstock

Instructions: My finished card size is 5" x 7". Make card base and cover front with a piece of the paper collection. I used 12B - red. Cut out the opening in card front using a die from Cut Mat Create dies. Also cut a piece of the paper 5A - blue and glue down inside the card so that when the card front is closed the blue piece fits the opening.

Stamp the cottage, snowman, snow covered shrubs, fence, birds and the red berries using Archival Jet Black ink. I colored everything with colored pencils and then using coordinating dies, cut out everything. Using Designer Dries White Glue, add snow to the fence and set aside to dry. Decide on the placement of everything and glue everything down. I cut out one of the tags from the paper collection and stamped the sentiment onto that and used the coordinating die to cut out. Adhere it to the card front. The card is finished.

Flat Card Suitable for Mailing....

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I'm here to share a card I made using stamps and dies from the Heartfelt Creations Countryside Cottage Collection.  I watched a video by Tracey Fehr and was so inspired and so I began stamping and watercoloring the images.  



I adore this sweet mailbox and you will be seeing more of it in the near future.  This card can mail using 1 first class stamp and I'm such a happy camper because of this.  Now I can send a little card to just let someone know I'm thinking of them and it doesn't have to cost $4 to get it there!  I don't send as many cards as I would like to because of the cost.  So this card goes into my box and may be showing up in your mailbox one day soon!

Inspiration Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations...

Good morning friends!  I'm here to share another card I have made using the Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilac Collection.  These flowers remind me of my grandmother...she had a huge Lilac bush in her yard and that was the one flower we were allowed to pick.  When it bloomed it had such a sweet smell and we would pick blooms and carry them to our Mom and she would have vases everywhere filled with them! When Heartfelt Creations released this collection my heart was filled with such joy and I continue to re-visit the collection often! I hope you enjoy my creation as much as I enjoyed making it!

Inspiration Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations....

Good morning friends and welcome to my last post of this crazy year!   I'm here to share another card with you featuring the Garden Zinnia flower from the Summer's Garden Collection!  My mother grew these flowers along the edge of our back porch when I was a child so they hold a place dear to my heart.  I can almost smell them when I remember her tiny garden.  Heartfelt Creations has truly captured these lovely flowers and I'm pleased to share another card with you!

For more tips on creating with the Summer's Garden Collection watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/-dYnAWXIH3E.

Instructions: My card size is 5" x 7". Make card base and pick a piece of the paper collection and cover the card front leaving just a small margin of white around the edges. Diecut the Regal Frame from white cardstock and adhere to the card front.

Stamp the flower petals in Cactus Flower and Buttercup then color with Majestic Violet, Cactus Flower and Buttercup. Make sure to color the backs of the flower petals and the leaves. Lay on the molds, spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Lay out onto the desk mat to dry. I stamped the leaves with Fern Green then colored with Leaf Green. Lay onto the mold, spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Lay out onto the desk mat to dry.

Make the flowers and add prills to the centers and allow to dry. You can use a bit of hot glue and drop prills onto that to add a more dimensional flower center. I did this with some of the flowers and some I just did the traditional way using Dries Clear Glue.

Decide on the placement of your flowers and leaves and glue down using hot glue. The card is finished.
