Pretty and Delicate

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I want to share a card featuring the gorgeous Eyelet Lace die from Heartfelt Creations.  This is a very pretty and delicate card suitable for birthdays and weddings and the vellum Oakberry Lanes are the perfect touch to finish the card.

I have die cut four decorative dies and adhere two dies together for more strength.  I have also shaped the vellum flowers in the Oakberry Lane Blossoms mold and they came out well.

I hope that you get some inspiration to try this for yourself.

A Little Bit Pink, Blingy and Glittery!

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I am sharing a card that I made for my daughter’s friend’s birthday.  The brief was that it had to be pink and lots of glitter and bling.  Of course Heartfelt Creations helped me meet the brief easily.

I love how you can mix and match collections and I have used papers from the Purr-fect Posies and Burst of Spring collections to make this card.  I was inspired by how Rajni Chawla makes cards using lots of layers and foam tape and I hope that I have given it justice.

Roses for Mother’s Day

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I would like to share another Mother’s Day card that I have made with Heartfelt Creations Classic Roses and some Spellbinders dies.

I was inspired by Sabrina from Aspiring to Creativity for the lacy background but of course I had to add some Classic Roses.  I was really happy with how it turned out with all the texture and the combination of gold and ivory which makes the flowers and leaves to pop.

Happy Crafting
