Summer Roses

Welcome Back

Roses are my favourite flowers and I can’t get enough of the Heartfelt Classic Rose stamp and die set.  The flowers are the most realistic roses I have been able to make so far.  I have played around with lots of different colours and shapes and love them all.  Today’s card features blue roses on beautiful green papers from the Sweet Lullaby Paper Collection to make a stunning card.  I have used the lovely Spellbinders die Amazing Grace to

To make the roses I have stamped the images on white cardstock with Versamark ink and then embossed with Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing Powder.  Before I have die cut them I have coloured in the centres with Memento summer Sky ink.  20161021_173253

After die cutting I first misted the die cuts lightly with water and then I shaped them using my Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Shaping Kit to make these roses.

For the leaves I have coloured with Memento Bamboo Ink and then went over the top with Viva Decor Stamp Paint Green – which gave them a lovely shimmer.

I have added some glitter on behind the Decorative Oval die cut by using Jac paper on the die cut and then putting the Decorative oval on top and then putting glitter over it.

Christmas is Coming

Welcome back

Christmas is not far away and I have been busy making Christmas cards and kits to sell at Gift Hutt, and this week I wanted to show a card that I have made using a combination of the Heartfelt Creations Sparkling Poinsettias stamp and dies combined with the Celebrate the Season paper collection.  I love working with vellum and the Sparkling Poinsettias are just perfect to use with vellum.

For the flowers I have embossed with versamark ink and white Ranger embossing powder.  Before die cutting the flowers I have sponge Memento Summer Sky ink on the back.  After die cutting I have shaped the flowers using the Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Shaping set and finished off applying prisma glitter from my stash on the petals with Art Glitter Dries Clear glue.  The colour was just perfect with the Celebrate the Season paper collection.

The snow has been created using the Art Glitter Dries White glue and sprinkling prisma glitter on top.

Here is the front of the card:

Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose

Welcome back

I have finally got hold of the Classic Rose stamp and die set from Heartfelt Creations.  They sold out so quickly that I had to put another order in and save a set for myself.

Here is a card that I have made using the rose set as well as the Classic Rose Vine set.  To find out how I have made my roses click here for the Heartfelt Creations video.  I have coloured in the background images using the Dove blender pen and Memento inks.  The Classic Rose paper collection is stunning and make gorgeous backgrounds for the flowers.  The bride and groom are from the Sue Wilson Happy Couple die.  It is hard to see on the photos, but I have used Wink of Stella on the Classic Rose Vine images and added glitter to the roses for a touch of sparkle.20161009_181752_001

I did muck up a little inside the card and next time I will do things differently with lining up the outside paper, card base and inside paper together before die cutting the aperture.  I managed to save it a little with putting some flowers over the edge.
