A Beary Fun Retreat Picnic

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Today sees the release of the very cute Beary Retreat Collection from Heartfelt Creations.

Long days filled with sunshine begin to fade and the crisp evening breezes begin to call for cozy wool knit sweaters as the fall season slowly ushers out the lazy days of summer! Along with the falling leaves and a last surge of floral blossoms, autumn brings with it a more relaxed and reflective way of life and a reminder that winter will soon be around the corner. Autumn also brings with it a fun that only autumn can bring…playing in crisp piles of fallen leaves, picnics with warm beverages, cozy evenings spent around the campfire and exploring fields filled with rows and rows of sunflowers bowing their heads giving way to the season! Even the animals of the forest recognize and celebrate the subtle arrival of autumn, spending their last few days before hibernation playing and making preparations for the arrival of the upcoming winter season. Come along with us and join in our fall festivities as we go on one final fun filled retreat with the Beary Fun Retreat Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Filled with delightful and captivating illustrations of adorable bears, this autumn themed collection is sure to appeal to all ages! Perfect for celebrating an array of occasions, this fun loving assembling of stamps, dies and decorative papers will bring a whimsical and lighthearted touch to all of your paper crafting creations. The dynamic paper collection boasts a color palette filled with beautiful tones of burnt oranges, rusty reds, midnight blues, along with leaf like greens and golden yellows all mixed with checkered plaids, decorative stripes and gorgeous imagery of blooming sunflowers and falling leaves. Three sets of detailed cling stamps with coordinating dies allow you to join in the fall themed fun of a charismatic bear family enjoying their last retreat before winter sets in. Whether sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows near an adorable treehouse, enjoying songs strummed out quietly on guitar, or filling up on delightful meals of honey, these cute images are ideal for embellishing all of your fall themed cards and scrapbook layouts! So throw on a cozy sweater, grab a cup of hot cocoa and join in the fun as we enjoy one last “beary” fun filled autumn retreat!

For my project I have used one of the new shadow boxes and created a picnic scene.  I must admit it did seem strange to be doing autumn colours when we are in winter here and just going into spring, but I loved using these colours.  They are so warm and cosy!

Pink Sunrise Lilies

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Today I am featuring something a little different from my usual cards.  I have been inspired by John Lockwood and his amazing creations.  Please visit his website here for the instructions on how to make this hexagonal frame here: http://johnnextdoor.blogspot.co.nz/2014/05/what-difference-year-makes.html?spref=pi

I have made the lilies using the Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily stamps and dies on foamiran.  I was happy with how the flowers turned out but foamiran is still a work in progress for me.

For the base of this I have used Sizzix hexagonal dies rather than measuring out the hexagons as John as done.  I embossed the smaller die and then cut the hexagon with the larger die.  I have still cut the tabs etc the same as what John has done but I thought this was a quicker and easier way of doing the base and it worked perfectly for me.  However, it is really important when cutting out the larger die size to measure with your ruler to make sure the edges are even to allow the base to sit evenly.

Have a good week – don’t forget to check in on Wednesday for the exciting release of the new Beary Fun Retreat Collection from Heartfelt Creations!
