A Rainbow Wedding

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have another wedding card. This is a card I have made for my daughter’s friend who got married yesterday. She loves rainbows and the Singing in the Rain Collection was perfect for the rainbow. Of course I had to add some colourful handmade flowers to match the rainbow.

Best Wishes With Bursts of Spring

Kia Ora Koutou

I am so excited with the release of the new Bursts of Spring with gorgeous papers and pansies.

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!
