Welcome back and I am finally able to share a card that I made for my son’s 3oth birthday last year using the new Courtyard Elegance die that has just been launched. My son loves the sea and the Sea Breeze collection was just perfect for him. And the new gold luxe card from Heartfelt Creations paired perfectly with the papers. He was very happy with his card.
Welcome back and thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Today I have another custom card I have made for a 40th Birthday using Arianna Blooms. The brief was for maroon and pink so I did Arianna Blooms in Plum ink and the Wildwood Florals in pink and the customer was very happy.
Heartfelt Creations – Arianna Blooms stamp and die set, Wildwood Florals stamp and die set, Rainboots and Blossoms stamp and die set, Leafy Accents stamp and die set with coordinating mold,
Today I have a quick post showing a card I have just completed for a custom order. I have just received the new Becca Feeken range of Spellbinders dies and I just had to have a play with the Victoriana Crest and it is just gorgeous! It paired beautifully with the Flowering Dogwood paper and flowers from Heartfelt Creations of course!
I also took a photo of the difference Rajni Chawla’s Frosting Powder and Crystal Clear makes to the finish of a card.

Die cut the stamens from the green cardstock and roll up and adhere to the centre of the larger flowers. Using Dries Clear glue adhere the prills to the centres of the stamens and the smaller flowers. Adhere to the card as shown.
