Be Joyful

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7

These are verses I memorized years ago and they are written on my heart. There are times when I still need to remember not to be anxious, but I eventually listen to my heart saying these verses. I didn't really understand what the "peace of God" was until I experienced it. It's having peace inside you, even when you're going through heartbreaking situations and trials. It does "surpass ALL understanding" and you know it comes from GOD alone. Praise the Lord for His wonderful promises!


I love, love, love what I do. I am passionate about the things I create and the talents God has placed in me. I SO appreciate the time you take to look at my things and the comments you all leave me!

Blessings to you!

Pink Classic Rose Thank You


Happy Wednesday!

It's that time of the month for Heartfelt Creations' new collection to be released! This month we have the Classic Rose Collection! I LOVE roses, so this one is one of my favorites to date!

Beautiful in color, exquisite in fragrance, and ever so dignified, the rose is one of the most coveted flowers found in chic bouquets, or carefully tended flower gardens.  Breathtaking in bud form, as a blossom gently opening, or in full bloom, it is a flower that calls attention to itself and beckons you to pause and quietly reflect upon its elegance.  Heartfelt Creations invites you to stop, fall quiet and immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the new Classic Rose Collection!  Filled with delicate illustrations of roses ranging from buds, to full blossoms, rose wreaths and flower filled vines, the three cling stamp sets and coordinating dies included in this assembling will have you building gorgeous rose gardens filled with varying sizes of dimensional flowers as realistic as those found in nature themselves.  The captivating decorative paper collection will whisk you away to perfectly manicured rose filled grounds, serene meadows where brooks babble and wild roses hold their heads high, and alluring views from charming old world buildings clad in weathered brick and vining florals.  The handsome color palette of regal purples, deep brick like reds, rich corals and leafy greens filled with delicate swirls, stunning brickwork and floral patterns, along with tender handwritten script are among just a few of the magnificent elements found within this graceful paper assembling. So join us as we slow down, enjoy the view and take some time to linger and smell the roses.

Here is my first creation with this beautiful collection!




I used the Classic Rose Cling and Classic Vines Cling Sets for the flowers and leaves creating various size flowers. These were done using Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel on Natural White cardstock and coloring with chalk inks and make-up applicators. The Eyelet Oval Die was used for the scalloped edge oval and the solid center oval. I heat embossed the sentiment on the solid oval using Gold Embossing Powder and edged the oval with a Gold Leafing Pen. The background mat behind the oval is from the Classic Rose Paper Collection.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week using this gorgeous collection!

Snowman Waving Hello


Happy Wednesday!

This week I have another Christmas/Winter card for you using the Snow Kissed Collection from Heartfelt Creations! This time I'm using the other snowman image from the Frolicking Frosty Set. Last week I used the skating snowman, this week I'm using the waving snowman.




This little guy is so cute! I colored him and the ornaments with pencils and mineral spirits. The image was stamped twice so I could add a second snowman over the image to "pop" it over the first. There is a matching die for the snowman.

The snowflakes were stamped with Nautical Blue Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I also added a little color to some areas of the snowflakes using a Dove Blender Pen and the blue ink. These all have matching dies so you can easily cut them out and add to your card. I used foam tape to add them giving them a little depth.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to what the talented ladies have come up with for you!

The images were colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps. The background is embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder from Stampin Up.

Birthday Owl Swinging


Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a little inspiration with Heartfelt Creations!

This week I decided to use the Sugar Hollow Collection from a couple of months ago. I love these cute little owls!




The owl, swing and tree are all from the same set, Sugar Hollow Hangout. They all have matching dies to go with them which makes it fun piecing them together! I colored all the images with pencils and mineral spirits and used chalks for the owl belly and eyes.

The flowers are the Berry Blossoms from the Berry Cafe Collection. These also have a matching die so they are easy to cut out and shape. Not sure how realistic the flowers are with the tree, but I liked they way they looked together:)

The birthday sentiment is from the Sunrise Lily Flute Set. Three collections all in one card!

Here is a picture of the inside of the card. I used the little floral corner from the Berry Blossoms Set for this.

Merry Christmas Sleigh


Happy Wednesday!

I'm finally back with a post! So sorry to be absent lately! I've been on vacation and also busy working for Heartfelt Creations behind the scenes...keeping me busy:)

My card this week is from the new Celebrate the Season Collection released July 13th. I love the colors in this collection! There is something so calming about the teal and lavender colors together and I love that it's a little different from the typical red and green for Christmas.




I used the Celebrate the Season Paper Collection for the background mat and to cut the pre-printed sleigh. The other pieces, flowers, presents and mittens, were stamped on white cardstock and colored with Prismacolor Pencils and mineral spirits. All of these pieces, including the sleigh, have matching dies to cut them with which makes things so much easier!

Here's a little close up of the flowers for you.




Emma Lou has a wonderful video for you here to show you how to shape the poinsettia flowers and holly. She also shows you some great tips and techniques along with a complete look at the collection.

Happy Wednesday!

I'm back with another card using the Botanic Orchid Collection of stamps and matching dies! This time I'm using the beautiful Botanic Window Die with the orchids and hummingbirds!

Botanic Orchid Hummingbird


Happy Wednesday!

It's time for another Heartfelt Creations project, once again using the  new Botanic Orchid Collection released last week.  This time I have a very clean and simple card using the Botanic Orchid Bouquet Cling.




Both the image and sentiment are from the same set. The hummingbird and floral image also has a matching die, the Botanic Orchid Bouquet Die, that I used here to "pop" it onto the card.

The image was colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps. The flower center has Heart of Gold Prills added with glue.
