Cottage Garden Flower Patch

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I am excited to share my projects in two blog posts for the debut of the stunning Cottage Garden collection from Heartfelt Creations.  The papers are just beautiful and of course the hydrangea flowers are a must have for your craft collection.

My first blog post features a card made using my favourite decorative die – the Regal Frame die.  It frames the hydrangea flowers perfectly.

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.

Hydrangea Lawns Easel Card

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back to my second Design Team post for Dress My Craft.

I am still having so much fun with the Hydrangea Lawns paper and motifs and I really love using the Soft Floral Oriental paper for making flowers.  This paper is so easy to shape using the Golf Tools and the foam mat and the flower shaping possibilities are endless.  For today I have made an easel card using the circle nesting dies which are so versatile.

 

These little birds are just so cute, and I love the little sentiments that can be customized from the Motif Sheets.  They add some punch to your projects yet do not detract from your artwork.

Watch how I have made this easel card here:
