Wintery Inspiration from Heartfelt Creations

Hi bloggers. Seems almost hateful to think about winter coming, but it always does, like it or not. But if I must think about winter then I guess I rather be working on a Heartfelt Creations project more than anything else! My card today is another part of this wonderful mix of images from the
 Snow Kissed Collection. I mean who doesn't love a sleigh ride, right? And the trees........well I think they are to absolutely die for!  So enjoy my card for today, and maybe along the way you'll stir up a little wintery inspiration for yourself.

Here's a close-up of the sweet little scene I placed on the inside of my card and used the snowflake for a cut out to give my card that diorama feel.

Thanks for stopping in to visit with me for a while today and come back again. You can find complete instructions for my card and so much more at the Heartfelt Creations Blog.

Dramatic Inspiration from Heartfelt Creations

Hi bloggers, how's your summer going? Mine is flashing before my eyes, yikes!  Most people today try to avoid  all the drama that can happen at a moments notice, but...... I decided to embrace it, in a different way! I love the dramatic look of black, white and gold. So classy and elegant in my opinion. Absolutely LOVE it! This was created from the Festive Gate stamp & matching die from the Celebrate the Season Collection at Heartfelt Creations. I hope you enjoy my little creation today as much as I do.

Heartfelt Christmas Inspiration Wednesday

Hi bloggers! Hope your having a great day so far. Our weather here in the Mid-West has been really hot, but I love it. All too soon the dreaded "W" word will be here and then every thing pretty much goes into hibernation, including me! I have a card for you today using the Celebrate the Season collection from Heartfelt Creations. I've used the paper and presents from it, and added some Poinsettias from last years release, Sparkling Poinsettia. I used a verse from the page of verses in the paper pad for the inside of my card, but added a cut-out with acetate so it shows through to the front.
I hope you enjoy it.

Remember you can find complete printable instructions for this card and all my teammates beautiful work over on the HC Blog.

Thanks for stopping in today and I hope you have time to do some happy holiday crafting!
Hugs, Maureen

Thinking of You Orchid Inspiration

Hello bloggers. How was your 4th of July. Mine was quiet, mowed lawn all afternoon. I mow about 2 1/2 acres so it consumes most of the day. My sister came out on Saturday and we had our celebration then & power washed the deck, yay! So Sunday was rest day, & then back at it on Monday. I like to mow late in the day because when you have Lupus as I do, the sweet sun is NOT your best friend!
My card today is made with the beautiful Botanic Orchid Collection from Heartfelt Creations, of course, and it's a little different. I wanted to try my hand at neutrals instead of pink, white, or another pastel for this shaker card. I love this look. I think it's dramatic and the pops of gold mirror paper add a tad bit of elegance. I hope you'll give these colors a try.

You can find complete instructions for this card and lots of other beautiful projects on the
 Heartfelt Creations Blog, so be sure to stop in there and take a peek!
