Welcome back.  I don’t know about you but I feel that I have been coming out of hibernation after being in lockdown for so long.  Here in New Zealand we are in the fortunate position of very few new cases and a country opening up again but I am still very wary of going out and meeting people.

Today I want to share a card showcasing the gorgeous new decorative dies from Heartfelt Creations and the lovely pansy image from the Burst of Spring collection.  I have recently done an online course on how to use Zig Clean Colour Brush markers with Rajni Chawla (please contact her on Facebook for more information) and my colouring has improved immensely.  I love how the image pops out against the gorgeous dies.  I have also used some pearlised vellum from Lawn Fawn for a contrast with the white cardstock.  The photos doe not do this card just with all the glitter and contrast.

Products Used:

Heartfelt Creations Decorative Circle Frames Die

Heartfelt Creations Burst of Spring Stamp & Die set

White cardstock

Iris Cardstock

Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers

Lawn Fawn Pearlised Vellum

Pearls

Please stay safe and well.  Kia Kaha – stay strong.

Believing in Love

Welcome back and today I thought I would share a card made with Dress My Craft products.  I really enjoy making flowers with the Soft Floral Oriental paper and I have paired them with some gorgeous background dies and papers from Dress My Craft.

I like to make more flowers and leaves than I need so I have extra flowers to make a quick card.

I have a video on how I have made these flowers here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=He75MRZZZdk&t=28s

Please visit the Dress My Craft website here.  However, India is under Lockdown so it may be a while until everything gets back to a new normal.

Happy Crafting
