Heartfelt Creations Wednesday Roses




Hi bloggers. Well now that fall is officially here and the dredded"W" word is around the corner, I needed to mark something bright and cheerful. This Classic Rose collection from Heartfelt Creations is certainly the way to cheer myself up! I adore the color range in this paper pad this month, it has something for everyone. I chose to color my roses this time with the Chameleon markers I was gifted and went with pretty peach tones. Still in the fall color family, but not quite the full blown maple and oak leaves, acorns, cranberries, pumpkins, squash, etc. I love all those things, don't get me wrong, just can't wrap my head around the fact that summer is over (sad face). I hope you enjoy my card today, no fall and all! Oh yeah, I forgot, I threw a butterfly in there for good measure.


You can find complete instructions for this card on the HC Blog and lots of wonderful inspiration from my teammates, so be sure to check them out.

Hugs, Maureen

Heartfelt Wednesday Inspiration




Hello bloggers. I have another sample from the Classic Rose Collection from Heartfelt Creations.
This time I've gone with traditional red roses. My Mother loves roses and had gorgeous ones in California, but never to get them to grow beautifully after moving to Wisconsin. Bless her heart, she never gave up. So I am hoping she can see the ones I make from paper in her honor. I hope you enjoy my rose inspiration for you today.


Make sure to stop over to the Heartfelt Creations Blog today for a ton more projects to inspire you.

Thanks so much for stopping in today.

I'm mean who doesn't love a rose! These are a new and improved version of the vintage rose of a few years back with tons more petals and super ease of die cutting. Announcing the
 Classic Rose Collection from Heartfelt Creations.
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.   

Our resident descriptive writer extradonaire, Tracey, has gone and given you a little trip to paradise with her words, oh how I love that girl!!
I have a bit of a change-up with my coloring. This month I will be featuring Chameleon markers for all my colored images. We are having a cross promotion this month and I was one of those who were gifted a set to try. Just love presents! Let me know what you think of my yellow roses colored with these markers.


Here's a close-up of the rose stamp, it's sooooo pretty!

Heartfelt Christmas Tag




Hi bloggers, did you all have a great long weekend? I was canning Salsa! Absolutely nothing like homemade, yummy. Today I have a tag for you that uses the Snow Kissed Collection from
 Heartfelt Creations, but I tweaked it a little to look vintage. I taught a Copic class some time ago that had three different ways to color snow, blue gray, & vintage, which is what I colored this little guy. I made a wreath from the little branch that comes in the Gift Box and Mini Snowflakes Die. I thought it sort of reminded me of Mistletoe. I used one of the Creative Embellishments chipboard words to add to the center of it, after coating it with Gesso & then some Distressed rock candy glitter.
I hope you enjoy my tag & you can get the complete instructions on the HC Blog.


Here's a close-up of the wreath, love it!


Thanks for stopping by today and come back next week for our new release!

Heartfelt Wednesday Inspiration




Hello bloggers! Hope this day finds you well and happy. I've dipped my hands in to the world of clean and simple, or better yet, my version of it. Actually this was made out of necessity more than any thing else. I was so busy working on a secret project that I forgot to make something to post for today..........bad me! Once again I can't say enough about Heartfelt Creations paper collections. If you need a card in a hurry, all you have to do is pluck a scene from the pre-colored images of the paper pad, cut, glue, embellish a little, and you are in business my friend. I hope you enjoy my card today I just love how it turned out and hope you do too.


Be sure to stop in at the HC Blog and check out all the wonderful bits of inspiration from my teammates.

Hugs, Maureen

Hello bloggers. I have a cute little treat box for you today Featuring Heartfelt Creations 
Treat Box Die along with the pretty new large snowflake & one of the trees in this Snow Kissed Collection. I have decided they would be so cute to set at each guests place at the holiday table, maybe filled with after dinner mints & they would have a keepsake to take home!


Here's a closeup of the Poinsettia I added to the handle of my little treat box.

Wintery Inspiration from Heartfelt Creations




Hi bloggers. Seems almost hateful to think about winter coming, but it always does, like it or not. But if I must think about winter then I guess I rather be working on a Heartfelt Creations project more than anything else! My card today is another part of this wonderful mix of images from the
 Snow Kissed Collection. I mean who doesn't love a sleigh ride, right? And the trees........well I think they are to absolutely die for!  So enjoy my card for today, and maybe along the way you'll stir up a little wintery inspiration for yourself.


Here's a close-up of the sweet little scene I placed on the inside of my card and used the snowflake for a cut out to give my card that diorama feel.


Thanks for stopping in to visit with me for a while today and come back again. You can find complete instructions for my card and so much more at the Heartfelt Creations Blog.
