Good Times Card

Today I am sharing another fun card from Heartfelt Creations' Young at Heart Collection.  My Good Times Card shows how the Young at Heart Paper Collection pairs nicely with stamps and dies from some previous collections.


Just add the flowers and palm tree from the Palm Tree and Monkeys Cling Stamp Set and the coconut from the Monkey Antics Cling Stamp Set and die cut with their coordinating dies and you have a fun beach themed card.

      Beach Umbrella Chipboard

      It is hard to believe Summer is over, but it is always great to remember the fun in the sun!  I designed my I Love Summer Card featuring the Beach Umbrella Chipboard Shape from Want2Scrap.  I created this A2 sized card with paper and ephemera from Echo Park.



      I painted the Beach Umbrella Chipboard Shape with gesso and then added Silver Viva Decor 3D Stamp Paint to the umbrella's pole and Apricot Viva Decor Ink Gold to the umbrella.  I adhered to the umbrella to the card front with pop dots and using Art Glitter Dries White Glue added Sand Opaque Glitter at the base of the umbrella.



      I sponged the edges of the I Love Summer ephemera with Splash ColorBox Chalk Ink and adhered a Red Bling Heart on top of the heart on the design paper.  Finally, in the upper right corner I added a couple Iridescent Rhinestones and an Orange Rhinestone.



      I hope you are loving your Summer!

      Want2Scrap Chipboard Butterfly Card

      Today I am sharing my Summers Forever Card featuring the Butterfly Chipboard ShapeSilver Rhinestone Inspire SwirlsEndless Waves Beautiful Bling Borders and Enamel Dots.  I created this 6" x 6" sized card with paper and ephemera from Echo Park.  I sponged the edges of the ephemera and yellow paper with Scattered Straw Tim Holtz Distress Ink and the design paper with Toffee Crunch Memento Ink.  For some extra sparkle I added Ranger Diamond Stickles to the flowers on the design paper and ephemera. 


      Using a craft sponge on the Butterfly Chipboard Shape I added Nuvo Mousse in Peony Pink to the wings and Nuvo Mousse in Cosmic Brown to the butterfly's body/antennas.  It takes about 2 - 3 coats to cover the chipboard completely, but since the Nuvo Mousse basically dries instantly this takes no time at all to achieve the desired results.  I then gently bent the chipboard wings upward slightly and adhered the butterfly's body with adhesive.  I then adhered the Beautiful Bling Borders - Endless Waves! by Nina Brackett near the antennas and the Inspire Swirls by Nina Brackett in Silver Rhinestones at the bottom of the chipboard butterfly, cutting both to fit as needed.  I added Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss in Carnation Pink and Dandelion Yellow to the wings.


      Finally, I added Enamel Dots 8mm Stone Size - Yellow and Enamel Dots 8mm Stone Size - Hot Pink, to the corners as shown.


      Have a great day!

      Petunias in a Watering Can

      Today I am sharing one of my favorite projects, My Petunias in a Watering Can.  I love petunias and almost every year I buy hot pink petunias and put them in pots on my front porch.  I have already even put them in an old metal maple syrup bucket that belonged to my Grandpa.  So when I saw this little tin watering can at the thrift store I knew it would be perfect to put my Heartfelt Creations Petunias in them.


      I even designed it so a sweet little hummingbird paid a visit to the pretty petunias!



      Have a great day!

      Beautiful Day Card

      Heartfelt Creations is pleased to release its Beary Fun Retreat Collection today and I am sharing the my Beautiful Day Card featuring the collection.  This is what Heartfelt Creations has to say about its newest release:

      "Long days filled with sunshine begin to fade and the crisp evening breezes begin to call for cozy wool knit sweaters as the fall season slowly ushers out the lazy days of summer! Along with the falling leaves and a last surge of floral blossoms, autumn brings with it a more relaxed and reflective way of life and a reminder that winter will soon be around the corner. Autumn also brings with it a fun that only autumn can bring…playing in crisp piles of fallen leaves, picnics with warm beverages, cozy evenings spent around the campfire and exploring fields filled with rows and rows of sunflowers bowing their heads giving way to the season! Even the animals of the forest recognize and celebrate the subtle arrival of autumn, spending their last few days before hibernation playing and making preparations for the arrival of the upcoming winter season. Come along with us and join in our fall festivities as we go on one final fun filled retreat with the Beary Fun Retreat Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Filled with delightful and captivating illustrations of adorable bears, this autumn themed collection is sure to appeal to all ages! Perfect for celebrating an array of occasions, this fun loving assembling of stamps, dies and decorative papers will bring a whimsical and lighthearted touch to all of your paper crafting creations. The dynamic paper collection boasts a color palette filled with beautiful tones of burnt oranges, rusty reds, midnight blues, along with leaf like greens and golden yellows all mixed with checkered plaids, decorative stripes and gorgeous imagery of blooming sunflowers and falling leaves. Three sets of detailed cling stamps with coordinating dies allow you to join in the fall themed fun of a charismatic bear family enjoying their last retreat before winter sets in. Whether sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows near an adorable treehouse, enjoying songs strummed out quietly on guitar, or filling up on delightful meals of honey, these cute images are ideal for embellishing all of your fall themed cards and scrapbook layouts! So throw on a cozy sweater, grab a cup of hot cocoa and join in the fun as we enjoy one last “beary” fun filled autumn retreat!"
