Thank you.

Thought I'd do a quick post and share these 
Thank you cards I made yesterday! 

I had lots of inky fun colouring the card!
As I was making them I thought that this stamp and die  
would make great coffee morning invites!
Just change the sentiment!

I used the Heartfelt Creations Coffee Talk collection to make the card,

Yesterday was one of those days I didn't expect to craft on!
You know those days where your plans dramatically change in an instant?
Lol that was us! Still there is always a silver lining!

Birthday Flowers

Here is a card I made for Crafter's Companion!
I really am loving making shaped cards at the moment!
This design would make a great wedding card too all you would need 
to do is change the sentiment! 

Lol I used papers behind the diecut front and in side the card, I guess
I could have used Kraft card tho as it gives the same effect!
I do so love Pink, white and kraft as a colour combo! 

Have lots of crafty fun!

To make the card I used:

Dies'ire Cut In Create-a-Card - Floral Garden die
Sara Signature English Country Garden - Lazy Daisy Die
Sara Signature English Country Garden - Floral Duo die

Other items: Gems, pearls, Distress Inks, glitter glue

Hats off!

For my card this week for Heartfelt Creations I was inspired
by London Fashion week! 

I just love hats, how I wish they would become popular again! 
Some of the vintage hats from the 1920's are amazing! 

Oh the colours of the Classic Rose Collection......
I had a hard time deciding what colour to make this! 
The papers are all so pretty! 
I am always drawn to purples they remind me of my Grandma,
She would have loved this! Infact she wold have had
me decorating a real hat for her with these!!!! Bess her.

Have you stopped by the Heartfelt Blog? 
Oh my there are some stunning projects! 
You can see them HERE

To make the card I used the following:
HCST1-401 Flower Shaping Kit
HCD1-7111 Classic Rose Vines Die
HCD1-7110 Classic Rose Die
HCPC-3753 Classic Rose Vines Cling Stamp
HCPC-3752 Classic Rose Cling Stamp
HCDP1-270 Classic Rose Paper Pad

Other Products Used : White card, glue, glitter glue, 3D foam pads, Peeled Paint and Dusty Cncord
Distress Inks, String pearl gems, Hat pins.

Watch this video HERE to see how to shape the Classic Rose flowers.

Using white card create a hat card using the template HERE
I enlarged the template to create a larger hat by printing it at a larger scale. 
Draw around the template on paper from the paper pad and adhere to the inner of the card.
Repeat for the front of the card. I used a piece where the base of the hat looked different
to the top. Adhere to the card front and ink the inner and front edges of the hat. Cut a strip
of the darker paper from the pad 1" x 4 1/4" and adhere to the card as the hat band with 3D foam.
Cut a strip of paper 7/16" x 4/1/4" and adhere to the top of the darker strip. Glitter the patterns
on the paper for the hat front and adhere pearl string along the hat band. Stamp, cut, colour and
shape the leaves and the flowers. Glitter the flower petals. Adhere the leaves and flowers to the card
and your project is complete.

Happy Crafting!

Thought I would share this card I made the other day for my friend!
I know I have been missing from here and I'm sorry!
I am working on getting some posts up! 

Of course I made this with Heartfelt Creations papers, stamps and dies!
It's an eclectic mix as there are a few collections here! 

I was sorting through my papers the other day and I just had to 
use this card front from the Celebrate the Journey paper pad.
I had no idea what else I was going to do just I wanted to use the paper!
Lol ever have that happen too? I bet there are lots of you that do! 

Lol A few years ago everything I made was pink and there was no blue!
I just looked up at my shelf of recent makes and thy are all blues!!!

Shoes and a shoe box!

Oh my goodness I am so excited to share this project with you!
I just had the urge to create a pair of shoes!
And then I thought .......... Mmm they need a box too! lol!

I had such fun making these I really hope you LOVE them too!

Of course I had to decorate the back too! 

Oh how I would LOVE a real pair of these.... Jimmy ........ lol! 

Here is a close up of the corner of the shoe box.
 I just decorated the one corner as it was designed for the shoes to sit on it!

The lid is all glittered on each butterfly, the camera didn't pick it up very well .....
Also all the flowers and leaves are sprayed with Irridescent Spray and Sparkle! 

I made the shoes and the shoe box with the Sara Signature English Country Garden 
collection from Crafter's Companion.
