An Exciting Announcement...

 Hello and Welcome my Friends!

I have some exciting news to share with you today! It's a little secret I've been sitting on for a few weeks...and I'm so happy to finally be able to announce that I've been asked to join the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Design Team!

I have been an admirer of Becca Feeken's work for many many years...her beautiful stamps, dies, and creations are absolutely amazing and make putting together elegant cards so quick and easy! 

I've been busy playing in the craft room with some new APG dies, and I can't wait to share my first projects with you shortly!

Until next time...

Debuting the NEW Rustic Sunflower Collection from Heartfelt Creations

 Hello and Welcome!

I'm so glad you're able to join me today!

It's been a crazy week with my daughter starting her fulltime job (it's still crazy to think that she graduated just a few months ago), and Grade 11 starting for our son! It's been super quiet in the house with everyone gone!

It's also been a new release week with Heartfelt Creations! Wednesday marked the unveiling of the NEW Rustic Sunflower Collection, and today I did a new release live on the Heartfelt Creations FB Page featuring this newest flower!

Now, if you know me, you know that I love love love sunflowers! When I applied for the HC design team, it was actually the Classic Sunflower Collection that I was sent to work with! I'm super excited to see another sunflower collection since the Classic Sunflower has since been retired!

The color palette in this newest paper collection is absolutely amazing....and I knew that I wanted to use that gorgeous teal colored patterned paper with some bright yellow sunflowers! 

I thought I'd keep it simple and just cluster some dimensional flowers onto some of the gorgeous stamped sunflower accents to build two lovely clusters! 

I've stamped these sunflowers in Ranger Archival Ink - Coffee to give them a softer appearance. I've colored them with a selection of Archival Inks ...Buttercup, Sunflower and Monarch Orange. The leaves have been colored with a blending of Ranger Archival - Leaf Green and Olive! I love how they turned out! For the centers I wanted something rustic looking so I've used the Redland Elements! I've used one of the accent flowers from the Wild Aster Spray Cling Stamp Set to give my clusters a bit of a light and airy feeling! I love how these floral clusters turned out! Don't you?

You'll notice that I've kept the background of the card super simple...just two different colors for background mats and then a pretty oval center that has been framed with a pretty decorative die cut from the Royale Elegance Frames Die! I've opted to not add a sentiment to this card as that way I can give it as is, or add a sentiment for the occasion for which I'll be gifting the card!

I do hope you've enjoyed today's share! 

Feel free to leave me a comment! I'd love to know what you think of today's creation!

And, just in case you missed today's livestream and are wondering how to recreate this card, you can find it here!

Until next time...
