Spring Beauty

Happy Monday, everyone! What a dreary weekend we had here in Southwestern Ontario. However, it was a good weekend to do some scrapbooking. I made up this kit called "Spring Beauty" using the Heartfelt Creations Die and Stamp set called "Birds and Blooms". Sheila has brought in a lot of the Dies and Stamps from this company and I love working with them. I also bought the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to help make the cut-outs more realistic. There are some wonderful tutorials on using these and other sets on the Heartfelt Creations site. Here are the ones that I used:

This is the kit that I am working on. I still want to add little bling. I thought this kit would be perfect to showcase your Spring Flowers.

Have a great week, everyone!

Sun Kissed Fleur Swirls

Good Morning Everyone,

 Today I want to share with you one my cards for my up coming class. Keep checking the website for dates and times. I used the stamp set from Heartfelt Creations called Sun Kissed Fleur Swirls and the coordinating die, Sun Kissed Fleur.

To colour the flowers I used one of the new ink pads from Hero arts called Ombre. The colour I used was Dark Peach. Love the look of going light from dark. I inked the edges of the flowers with Tim Holtz distress ink called gathered twigs. I then used my punch bunch tool to shape the flowers. Heartfelt Creation has a great flower shaping tool. I coloured the leaves with the green Wink Stella Brush. It just gives a little shine. In the top corner I used liquid pearls called dark chocolate to make the pearls. Oh yeah, the back ground paper is from Carta Bella called Rustic Elegance.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

June Brides

I'm not sure if this holds true anymore, but June used to be one of the most popular months for weddings. I know many people who celebrate their Wedding Anniversaries in June.
I've been having fun playing with my dies lately and have a whole bunch of fun cards to share with you.  For this card, I used the following Dies:

Wedding Cake (for the trim on her dress and the Rose)
 and finally,

I loved building this pretty scene on the white embossed background! Fun~

Sheila may not have all these dies in stock, however she will be glad to order any of them for you~

I decided that I didn't want to waste the negative of the Congrats die and decided to use it in conjunction with the  Border Duo 1 die. There are so many fun things that you can do with the remnants of a die, including sponging or painting through to make a fun back ground, or just using it as a focal point on your card! 

Happy Stamping,

Kids' Camp Part 2

Happy Monday, everyone! Today, I wanted to show you the second part of a craft that I will do for a Kids' Camp in July. Last week, I showed you a canvas that could be used in a Boy's Room and this week I am showing you a canvas that could be used to decorate a Girl's Room. In this class, we will be using a Tim Holtz stencil and a stamp from Tim Holtz, a Cheery Lynn Die that can be used for the child's name, some wooden butterflies and a Clear Wink of Stella pen, and we will be using some Inktense pencils to colour the skin and hair of the Prima Doll. Watch for the July Calendar to see the date for the class.
Hope you have a great week!
