A Heartfelt Wednesday Post

A couple of cards today that I made using Heartfelt Creations stamps.   The first card is made using the Posey Patch Swirls set and my recently acquired Spellbinders Labels 17 dies.  I think I like those dies as much as I like the Labels 4 dies.   To make the card I simply created a regular A2 size card with the fold at the top and then positioned the largest die from the set so a portion of it extended off the card base to allow for the "hinge". Probably should have taken photos or something...   The swirl image was stamped on cream cardstock using Memento Bamboo Leaves.  All the flowers were stamped using Memento Dandelion and then die cut using the matching Posey Patch dies.  Some Diamond Stickles were added to the center of each flower and I was done. 



The second card was made using Semper Augustus Tulips set and the matching Springtime Medley dies.  I stamped the image on cardstock and then colored the image with Copic markers.   The image was stamped again, the tulips colored and then die cut using the small tulip die from the Springtime Medley die set.  What a time saver to have the matching dies!  I die cut the main image using a Spellbinder Oval die and then die cut theCameo Coral cardstock using the Decorative Oval Window Die.   The two pieces were adhered as shown and the tulips adhered using foam dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock with Cameo Coral ink and then die cut with a Labels 11 die.  The card base was covered with the patterned paper and then the ribbon was tied around the card.  The focal image was adhered to the card front and the tag added.


Thanks for taking a peek....
