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.

Triple Easel Wedding Card Featuring Heartfelt Creations Flowers

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back.  Today I have a triple easel wedding card.  I had just sold a card on Trade Me and the one I had in the shop was not something I could send out.!  So I made another one using Lush Lilacs and Classic Roses and a different embossing folder to the previous ones I had done before.   Here is the link to my previous post and there is a link for instructions on how to make this card.  They are a lot easier than they look as it is just three different easel cards joined together.  Next time I will be placing the easels closer together but I was in a rush today.

These are so easy to make and I hope that I have inspired you to try one for yourself.

Happy Crafting
