Vining Fuchsias and Ariana Blooms

Welcome back

I am a day late for my post but better late than never.  I haven’t had much chance to do much crafting lately as my house is on the market and I haven’t been too well either.  So I will show a card that I made some time ago.  I am discovering all sorts of products on the market place and it has been enjoyable playing with some new ones that I have purchased.

Gift Hutt-1-187

For this card I have used a combination of Heartfelt Creations dies and stamps for a colourful card.  There is a lot of layering involved with the different dies and stamps.  I have cut two of the Raindrops on Roses die in White Daisy cardstock and then one oval using the inner oval with the pattern from the Elegant Ovals die also in White Daisy.  I then cut a plain oval out of the Pomegranate cardstock to place underneath the patterned oval.  I then stamped the Vining Fuchsia stamp on some White Daisy cardstock.  I coloured the flowers and leaves with copic markers.  I then partially cut the image out using the plain oval die and then fussy cut around the flowers to create a look of cascading flowers over the patterned oval.  I then stamped and die cut the Ariana blooms and coloured them in with copic markers.  These colours work perfectly with the Pomegranate cardstock.  I shaped the flowers and then finished off with the Gold Bling gems from CTMH.  I haven’t put a sentiment on as yet and may not do so.  It can then be used for a number of different occasions.

Having Fun with Heartfelt Creations Ariana Blooms

Welcome back

I hope you all had a good Christmas and got lots of new craft supplies.  I have just received the Heartfelt Creations Ariana stamp and die set and I just love these stamps.  It is strange using the rubber stamps again but these stamps had good adhesion to my acrylic blocks and gave a nice crisp image.  It is also great to have a matching die to save my hands for fussy cutting.  I have had some fun with using different inks and finishes and here are my first efforts.

I have used a combination of Le Vie En Rose papers and Black and Pomegranate cardstock from CTMH for my first card.  I love the combination of the gold embossing on the flowers and the gold Peelcraft edging and corners and the black of the Heartfelt Creations eyelet oval die.  I have cut two sets of flowers to create these flowers.  I haven’t put a sentiment on the front as it blocked the beautiful paper.  I am waiting for some beautiful Spellbinders dies and will look at doing something inside the card instead.  However, I do find that some people like to have blank cards for different purposes.

Here is a close up of the flowers.  The photos really do not show the vibrancy of the colours.

I have stayed with a very elegant cream and gold combination for my second card. I have used Peelcraft stickers for the corners, edging and the tag and sentiment.

Finally here is a little fun 4″ x 4″ card I have made with this single layer flower and the Raindrops on Roses die from Heartfelt Creations.  I have sponged the centre with Buttercup ink and the edges of the petals with Pomegranate ink.
