Let’s Celebrate

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I am sharing a card made using some gorgeous dies and flowers from Heartfelt Creations.

I have mixed the new Rounded Lattice Dies from the Black Friday 2019 release with the Swirly Border and Accents die for a lovely wedding card or for any celebration.  I have added a Flowering Dogwood with some Oakberry Lane Blossoms to finish this card.

I hope that I have inspired you to use your dies more creatively.

Pearls and Roses

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I want to share a card that I have made recently.  I have been wanting to make this card for several years and finally got round to doing one.  It is not perfect but I now have the measurements to do it again.  For instructions on how to make the basic card please visit YouTube here.

I have cut the base card 5 1/2″ x 8″ as the original measurements were for a different Heartfelt Creations die which is no longer available.  I have used the corner die from the Heartfelt Creations Create A Frame Leafy Border set.  The stitch border is from the Heartfelt Creations Ornate Pocket Accents Die and I have used a Crafter’s Companion embossing folder – Rambling Rose.

The flowers are:

Heartfelt Creations – Classic Rose and Flowering Dogwood.

The Flowering Dogwoods have been made from vellum and I have coloured with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Platinum and I have shaped them using the Oakberry Lane shaping mold.

Happy Crafting

Winning with Papercraft Essentials!!

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Today I am so excited to finally announce that I have won a cardmaking competition in England!!!

I saw a call on Facebook for people to make a card featuring the Apple Blossom collection of embossing folders (All Occasions Folders) and thought about it and then when the deadline for postage came up I decided to actually enter it.  I made one card but it didn’t look right so I made another card right at the last minute which I was much happier with.  I was up early in the morning to complete it and then posted it that afternoon to England.

I couldn’t believe it when I got an email from the publisher of Papercraft Essentials to say that I had won.  In fact I had to read the email several times before it sunk in!!!  And here is the winning card:

You never know what you can achieve unless you try!
