...and here's my first project with this stunning collection...
 

I just thought this would be perfect for a pretty, feminine Mother's Day card.
I know Mother's Day only happens here in May in Canada...but one can never get inspiration too early, right?

I stamped the corset image onto smooth mixed media paper as I was wanting to do some coloring with my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers. They work beautifully for giving an image that water colored look! I've been practicing...and while it's not perfect, I'm happy with how this image turned out!

Now, I have to say, that the petite floral blossoms in this collection are absolutely darling!
They are just the most adorable size...and are so very easy to shape with the coordinating shaping mold! Whether you create double blossoms in different sizes, or opt to leave them as single accents blooms...they are just plain perfect!

...and here's a close up of those fantastic Petite Florals...


Of course, the glitter and Nuvo Drops were the icing on the cake!
You can't have a card without glitter, can you?
It just totally adds to the elegance!

I do hope you've enjoyed what I've shared with you today!

A Quilted Christmas...

Welcome!
How are you doing this fine day?

It's another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, and I have a unique Christmas card design to share with you today!

I decided I wanted to challenge myself to create a holiday card using the Patchwork Daisy Collection this week! I just thought the Snowy Pine Village from the Merry & Bright Collection would look fantastic nestled in and among some cozy patchwork and bring to mind old fashioned memories of sleigh rides where you are bundled in warm quilts! I hope you'll feel that I accomplished the look and will enjoy my unique share this week!

...here's a peek at how the design turned out...

I've used several collection in this creation...the village scene and the panel it has been stamped on  comes from the Merry & Bright Collection, the small patches have been stamped onto paper from within the Buttons and Blooms Collection, and the rest of the decorative paper has been pulled from the Patchwork Daisy Collection.

I've stamped with small poinsettias and the holly clusters onto decorative papers from the Merry & Bright Collection so that coloring would be kept to a minimum on this project. I've stamped the daisy images onto white card stock using black ink and have colored them using the Stack and Store Daubers and the colors listed in the instructions below.

...here's a closer look at the daisy border...


I've glittered all of the flower petals with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive and Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear. It provides the perfect sparkle for all of your holiday creations!
Of course, those pretty fabric like patterned flowers needed real button centers...and the mini poinsettias some prills.

I do hope you've enjoyed the project I've shared with you today!
Do hop on over to the Heartfelt Creations blog to take in the rest of the amazing projects the design team have come up with for your creative inspiration!
