CHEERY CARDS WITH BUTTERFLIES AND FLOWERS

I can't believe August is over already and we are moving into September.  I just wanted to share a couple more cards that were featured on The Robin's Nest Blog during the month of August.  The first card uses the Spring Flowers Glitter Cardstock and I added the coordinating Butterfly Stickers.


I created the 3D flowers using Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fleur Die and Admiral Daisy Glitter Linen Cardstock.    I added Hydrangea Dew Drops and  Hyacinth Dew Drops to the flower centers on the design paper and the 3D flowers.  I matted the sentiment on Peach Glitter Cardstock.


Finally, I added the strip of flower stickers from the Butterfly Stickers to the side of the card front cutting to fit and the cute little bee sticker.  I added Dew Drops to the flower centers on the flower stickers also.


For my next card I used the front ivy and the back striped side of the Ivy Trim Cardstock.  The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations.  I used the sun sticker from the Butterfly Stickers set and added Dew Drops from Grapes & Leaves Dew Drops and Sun Showers Tear Drops to the upper right corner.


Finally, on this card I added this cute Butterfly Little Friend embellishment.


I hope you enjoyed my bright cheery cards featuring The Robin's Nest  Floral Collection.  Have a great day!

THE ROBIN'S NEST FLORAL COLLECTION

Today I am sharing a card that was featured on the The Robin's Nest Blog this week.  This month the design team is featuring their floral paper and I figured what better way to showcase the beautiful Floral Collection than to use some flower stamps and dies to create paper flowers out of the beautiful Robin's Nest floral paper.  I created the 6" x 6" card front using the Loves Me Cardstock and Edelweiss Specialty Paper.


To create the flowers and leaves I used stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations and Spellbinders with The Robin's Nest Purple Flowers Glitter Cardstock, Daisy Blue Cardstock, Pink Glitter CardstockSour Apple Glitter Cardstock, and Flower Vellum design paper.  I added Grapes and Leaves Dew Drops to the flower centers.



The sentiment is from Viva Rub-Ons and I added Grapes and Leaves Dew Drops to the upper right corner.



Have a great day!

AUGUST HEARTFELT CREATIONS ALUMNI DESIGN TEAM BLOG HOP

Today is the last Tuesday of the month and that means it is time for the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Monthly Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Giovana Smith Blog.

This month I used the design paper, die and stamp set from the Raindrop on Roses Collection.  



I colored the Vintage Closet Collage PreCut Set with Copics and distressed the edges with a distress tool and Antique Linen Distress Ink before adhering it to the card front.


I created the flowers by stamping the Majestic Morning Background Set on Cryogen White Paper, coloring them with Copics and die cutting them with the Majestic Blooms Die.  The leaves are die cut from the Raindrops on Roses Paper Collection and the leaf die from the Cut Mat Create 2A Die.  I added Rock n' Roll Prills to the flower centers for a final touch.



The Designers participating this month are:
