Decorated Birdcage and Butterfly Card with Heartfelt Creations

Hi everyone!  Today I have two projects to share with you that hopefully will remind you that Spring is around the corner.  My first project is a Decorated Birdcage that I created from a mini birdcage I purchased at Michaels and a glass candle holder I found at a thrift store.  


I decorated it with mostly flower stamps and dies from the Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley Collection and the Birds and Blooms Collection.  I also used the Arianna Blooms Cling Stamp Set and Die and the Open Leaf Cling Stamp Set and  Classic Leaf Die.  I also placed a birds nest in the birdcage and stamped, colored a bird with Copics and die cut it with the coordinating die from the Birds and Blooms Collection and put the sweet little blue bird on the nest.


My second project is a Beautiful Butterfly Card featuring Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3655 - Dream in Beauty Cling Stamp Set.


I made the large butterfly 3D with the stamps and dies from the Butterfly Medley Collection and also added some flowers to complete the card.

Happy Valentines Day!

Today I am sharing a special card that I created for The Robin's Nest that would be perfect for Valentine's Day! I matted the The Robin's Nest Black Fluer-de-li on White Glitter Cardstock on a piece of Silver Roses Glitter Cardstock and adhered it on a 6" x 6" black card base.  I then wrapped some red ribbon around the center of the card front and added a bow.



Using a Spellbinders Classic Oval die, I die cut the "I Love Us" sentiment from the Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock and then matted it on Very Black Glitter Chipboard that had been die cut with the Spellbinders Floral Oval die.  I added Silver Bell Dew Drops and Regency Mini Dew Drops to the edges before I added to the card front with pop dots.  Finally, I added Ace of Diamond Dew Drops to the bottom right corner of the card.


This made a simple, but beautiful card for that special someone!

Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley Collection


Heartfelt Creations is pleased to release its Butterfly Medley Collection.  This is what Heartfelt Creations has to say about its newest release:

"Are you longing for springtime...dreaming of sunny hours spent in a lavish flower garden where butterflies flit lazily from blossom to blossom?  Heartfelt Creations invites you to revel in the beauty of springtime with the release of the Butterfly Medley Collection of stamps, dies, and papers.  This uplifting collection is bursting with bountiful botanical roses and a kaleidoscope of fanciful butterflies.  Soft shades of pastel peach, lilac, sage, lemon, teal and pink are the perfect counterpoint for the bleak, grey days of mid-winter.  Beautifully landscaped backgrounds include pastel plaids, cheery polka-dots, flowing script, classic stripes, elegant flourishes, seed packets, garden themed sentiments and images.  Six hand drawn stamp sets featuring botanical roses and butterflies can be paired with two sets of dies, allowing you to stamp and die cut a host of embellishments with a single pass through your die cutting machine.  You'll dream in beauty, plant seeds of encouragement and reap a harvest of creativity when you design with the Butterfly Medley Collection from Heartfelt Creations."

This week I designed a Birthday card featuring the beautiful Butterfly Medley Paper Collection and the Botanical Rose Cling Stamp Set and the coordinating Botanical Wings Die.


I embossed the flowers with purple embossing powder and added Spring Bling Prills to the flower centers.

Quick Quotes and Want2Scrap Bling

Today on the Want2Scrap Blog I am sharing a card that features Quick Quotes products and Want2Scrap Bling. The 6" x 6 3/4" card uses paper, die cut stickers and chipboard die cuts from the Quick Quotes Sheer Joy Collection.



To create this fancy fold card begin with a 6 3/4" x 12" piece of kraft cardstock and then score on the 2 1/4", 3 3/4", 8 1/4" and 9 3/4" marks and fold.  Cut two pieces of the orange paper from Quick Quotes Sheer Joy paper to 2 1/4" x 6 3/4" and adhere to both sides of the card and then add Brackets Fancy - Silver Rhinestones LRG Pair - Self Adhesive to each side of the card.



Next cut a gray piece of Quick Quotes Sheer Joy design paper to 4 1/2" x 6 3/4" for the center of the card.  At the top of the card I cut the scalloped border to fit from the Quick Quotes Sheer Joy Chipboard Die Cuts.  The sentiment is from Quick Quotes Bundle - Sentiments.  I used Caribbean Blue PowderPuff Chalking Inks on the edge of the Sentiment before matting it onto several layers of Quick Quotes Sheer Joy paper.  Above the sentiment I used Heartfelt Bling Brackets by Nina Brackett.  At the bottom of the card front I used  Quick Quotes Sheer Joy Die Cut Stickers and I added a Gun Metal Pearl to each sticker.



Have a great day!
