Introducing Oakberry Lane

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and I am excited to share with you the new Oakberry Lane collection from Heartfelt Creations.

Come along as we head deep into the woodlands to explore the world of Oakberry Lane…the newest collection from Heartfelt Creations! Filled with delightful illustrations of lively, high spirited and lovable squirrels, this collection is one to capture your heart and creative imagination, and will appeal to both the young and the young at heart! Create irresistible outdoor themed scrapbook layouts preserving those precious moments experienced in the great outdoors, as well as charming handmade greeting cards ready to deliver well wishes and sentimental thoughts to friends and loved ones! Darling illustrations of squirrels at play on teeter totters and tire swings, gathering nuts, and bounding about in beautiful floral gardens with their tails held high, remind us that taking time to play, enjoying the company of others and banding together to make light work of the tasks at hand are important to a well balanced life! A stunning autumn themed color palette of acorn browns, woodland greens, sunset oranges, autumn leaf reds, along with deep plums and dark pinks, lay the foundation for decorative papers displaying delicate lace like patterns, vintage style barn wood patchwork backgrounds, as well as fascinating outdoor garden settings! Create your very own Oakberry Lane scenes with three cute and entertaining cling stamp sets and coordinating dies featuring a substantially sized acorn homestead, an assembling of lovable squirrels at play, and of course Oakberry Lane’s own signature wildflower blossom ready to be stamped, colored and assembled into a realistic 3D floral embellishment to accent all of your Oakberry Lane creations!

I have a shaped easel card using the Oakberry Cottage stamp and die set.

Cut a piece of the pink cardstock 12´x 6”, score at 6” and fold in half.  Place the outer cutting die slightly over the edge of the fold and cut to create a folded card.  Score half way of the top to create the easel card.  Die cut the outer edge of the acorn die from the blush pink cardstock and adhere to the bottom half of the top of the easel card.  Die cut two outer pieces of the acorn out of patterned paper and slightly trimming one at the top adhere to the bottom of the easel.  Adhere the other die cut paper to the top of the card.  Stamp the acorn image from the HCPC-3840 Oakberry Cottage & Sentiments Stamp set in Coffee ink on white cardstock and die cut with the coordinating dies.  Colour the acorn with Coffee ink, the caterpillar with Vivid Chartreuse ink and the butterfly with Majestic Violet ink.  Die cut the windows out and colour with vermillion.  Colour the squirrel with Bisque, Coffee Brown and Sepia ink.  Using a Dove Blender pen colour the pies with Peanut Brittle ink and the apron with Majestic Violet ink.  Adhere the coloured images to the base patterned paper and adhere to the top of the card.

Stamp the squirrel from the HCPC-3839 Furry-Tailed Frolic stamp set holding out the nut in Coffee Brown ink on white cardstock.  Colour in with Bisque, Coffee and Sepia ink, shape lightly and adhere to the right front of the top.

Stamp the leaves from the HCPC-3842 Oakberry Lane Blossoms stamp set in Library Green ink on flower shaping cardstock, colour in with Fern Green, Leaf Green inks and Majestic Violet inks before die cutting with the coordinating die.  Shape using the coordinating mold and assemble when dry and add Crystal Clear glitter with Dries Clear glue and adhere at the top of the acorn and on the bottom of the easel to create a shelf for the top of the easel to sit against.

Stamp the flowers from the HCPC-3842 Oakberry Lane Blossoms stamp set in Majestic Violet ink on white flower making cardstock and die cut with the coordinating dies.  Sponge the outer edges with Majestic Violet ink and the middle of the flowers with Vivid Chartreuse ink and shape using the coordinating mold.  Assemble when dry and add Crystal Clear glitter to the flowers and the Lettuce Entertain You Prills to the centres.  Adhere to the top of the acorn and on the base of the easel over the leaves.

Stamp the acorns from the HCPC-3840 Oakberry Cottage & Sentiments Stamp set in Coffee ink on white cardstock and colour with Coffee ink.  Die cut with the coordinating die, shape and adhere among the leaves and flowers as shown.

This collection is such a lot of fun and there are some amazing designs on the Heartfelt Creations blog here:
