Blue Roses for Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!

It’s the last Tuesday in the month, so it’s time for the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop.  You should be coming here from Sara Miller’s lovely blog, and if so you are right on track. This is my first time hopping along with my fellow alumni, and I have a beautiful blue roses card made with papers, stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations.

Kathy by Design for Heartfelt Creations









This 5″ x 7″ card uses a rich color palette of blue, grey, cream and gold.  I embossed the edges of the blue swirls paper in the Countryside Evening Paper Collection (retired) with gold embossing powder.   Using Versamark and the Large Elegant Words Background Stamp, I embossed the text in gold. I stamped the Bella Rose leaves directly onto the designer paper and then die cut them with the matching Bella Rose die.

Margie Engagement card 03Next, I stamped several Botanical Roses onto designer paper and embossed them in gold.  After die cutting with the matching Botanical Wings Die, the layers were shaped with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and glued together. The centers were filled with Czech beads.

Margie Engagement card 05I also used Spellbinders Spiral Blossoms and Bitty Blossoms to make some rolled roses.  My focal image is a vellum stamp that I found in my stash. Prima lovebirds were the perfect extra “topping.”

    Loved the way the elements on the card drew you to the blue in the woman’s shirt! Amazing

    I had a hard time getting to your page as some of the inks took me to the main page of your site instead but so glad I kept trying different ones. Your work is just gorgeous. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Just love your Bella Roses project and the pallette you chose to create your project was perfect!

  5. Sharon Salerno

    Gorgeous! I love the card and wish I was good at making a vintage card, mine never come out good.

    Lovely color combination Kathy. You’re right those love birds really add that something extra to the card. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Your card is glorious and the flowers are stunning! I’m so glad you could be part of the hop this month! I’m wondering who the lovely couple is who are on your card front?

    That blue and gold color scheme is spectacular and oh so striking! The dimension from the flowers and layering make this a real showpiece. You always go above and beyond Kathy! I also love how you staged this for the photo with those yellow roses picking up the gold touches!

  9. Gloria Stengel

    Oh my. Those flowers are to die for! When you told me a while ago about a blue and gold scheme, I was like…meh….but oh my word! You pulled it off and then some! This is just stunning! I love the gold writing and the edging, the flowers and….well…astounding work, my friend!

    Wow!! This card is unbelievable. Those rolled roses are so beautiful and the touches of gold embossing make the blues even more elegant.
