Friendship in Bloom

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have another card for you from Heartfelt Creations.  I am very sad to see the Classic Petunia paper collection being retired as the papers are just so gorgeous!  However,  there are some amazing products waiting to be released over the next year and room needs to be made for them.

 

The petunias were so quick and easy to shape using the 3D Basic Flower Shaping Mold.

Be in quick to get your papers before it is too late.

Christmas Bells are Coming For Christmas

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I am sharing three cards made with the beautiful Christmas Bells paper, motifs and dies from Dress My Craft.

I am really loving the Christmas Bells collection from Dress My Craft for making Christmas cards.  The papers are just stunning with a wide range of different colours and patterns for all Christmas card makers.  I have used gold accents to highlight the gorgeous reds, pinks and greens.

 

My first card is a shaker card which is complemented by the absolutely stunning Christmas Hangings bells and baubles die.  This comes with a decorative die and a background die but I only used the decorative die in gold card to make a statement.  This paired really well with the circle dies in gold.  I have used Micro Sparkling Dust, Ice Cubes, Snow White Flower Pearls and Frosted Sugar Powder for the shaker elements to create the effort of snow.

 

My second card is festooned with poinsettias and lilies that frames baubles, garlands  and the very cute images from the motif sheet.

My final card is a non-traditional pink and gold card featuring red and gold poinsettias on a pink and gold combination.
