Let Love Bloom for Heartfelt Creations Wednesday
I am pinching myself. I cannot believe this is the last Wednesday in January already. But it is, and that means it’s time for another peek at what I’ve been creating with stamps, dies and papers from Heartfelt Creations. This week, I’m using cheery images from the Majestic Morning Collection. Working with these vibrant hues and fabulous flowers has really warmed up this brutal winter for me, and I hope it has done the same for you! I have 2 projects to share with you this week. A card, and an altered mini cheeseboard. Let’s start with this “Let Love Bloom” card, shall we?
These gorgeous blooms are a huge reason that I enjoy working with this collection as much as I do. The flowers can be shaped in many different ways. Sometimes they look like petunias, sometimes like dahlias, sometimes like roses, or zinnias, or azaleas, or daisies….It just depends on the way you choose to shape them. If you haven’t watched it yet, Heartfelt Creations has two videos that show you how to work with these fabulous stamps and dies. You can view them here.
This is a 6″ x 6″ card with a top fold. I stamped, shaped and die cut the flowers and then simply added a doily , leaves, tag and bow. I love using the card fronts from the paper collection for quick and easy card making. And the little sentiment tags are huge time savers as well.
I used another card front on the inside, and then left blank space for writing a personal note. It’s always good to have a general “all-purpose” card in one’s stash!
This fun little cheese board was hand made by a North Carolinian who used to sell them at our state fair. When my next door neighbor downsized to a retirement community, she gave me this beautiful walnut piece. I’ve been saving it for something special. I decided to alter it using the Majestic Morning papers. It only measured about 3 1/4″ wide x about 5″ tall, including the handle. I did a little sanding, distressing and painting around the edges and then layered stamped images, flowers and artwork onto the main surface. The pink feathers were a last minute thought. I’m glad the idea occurred to me because they lend a really festive feel to the whole piece.
I also love the little crown and key that I tapped with Distress Paint.
I used my Bow It All Tool to tie this flirty orange bow. It just kind of “finished” the piece. What do you think?
That’s it for me today, friends. Be sure to pop by the Heartfelt Creations blog where you will find a complete supply list and detailed directions for making these two projects. You’ll also find loads of inspiration from the rest of the team. I hope you find time to do something creative on this last Wednesday in January. Do you have a special project you are working on? I’d love to hear about it! Your comments make me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers!
