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.

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Today sees the release of the gorgeous Sweet Peony collection from Heartfelt Creations.

Sweetly fragranced, and delicately airy, the graceful peony flower is a breathtaking and dreamy blossom that calls a quiet attention to itself! Lush foliage filled plants bursting forth with tightly wound flower buds among softly ruffled blossoms bring with them a hint of old fashioned romance and delight! Join Heartfelt Creations as we stroll through beautiful peony filled gardens in the new Sweet Peony Collection! Pause, linger and refresh your soul as you amble through a paper collection filled with delightful peony flowers in happy hues of angelic pinks and dark burgundies, set among a refreshing array of leafy greens, sky blues, and sunshine yellows! Soft swirls, gorgeous stripes, and dainty lace like accents come together to create pleasing backdrops for bold peony blossoms, chipping birds and divine window scenes! Three coordinating cling stamp set and die combinations bring the luscious peony flower to the forefront of this gorgeous collection. An assortment of varying sized peony petals and foliage die cut pieces work together to create dimensional and dynamic peony blossoms ready to captivate and take center stage on card fronts, scrapbook layouts and altered art pieces! So, breathe deep, drink in the sweetness of the peony blossoms, and feel free to linger awhile as we take in the gentle beauty of the Sweet Peony Collection!

Celebrating Your Special Day with the Flowering Dogwood Collection.

Kia Ora and Welcome

Just a quick post to show a card that I made just before Easter.  This card was made for a friend’s mother for Mother’s Day using the beautiful Flowering Dogwood Collection from Heartfelt Creations.

Jackie was so thrilled with the card that she wrote this for me:

I absolutely love the design, quality of materials and exceptional workmanship Patrica used when creating a handmade card for my Mum. It was a pleasure to have someone turn my vague ideas into a beautiful piece of art my Mum proudly displays in her home. I know exactly where I am coming back to see when I need more handcrafted cards – Patrica at Gift Hutt!

I enjoy the challenge of making custom designs for customers.  And it always gives me pleasure when eyes light up when they see what I have made for them.  I have also had some recipients of my cards come and see me to say thank you and that the cards are always on display because they love the cards so much.  That means so much to me knowing that my artwork is being loved and appreciated.

I couldn’t do this without the gorgeous products from Heartfelt Creations and I am so grateful that I have their beautiful products to work with to bring light and love to people’s lives.
