Hello bloggers. Time for another piece created from the Heartfelt Creations Peacock Paisley Collection. I wanted to do something a little different this time making a pink peacock. Are there pink peacocks you say? Well in my mind they are everywhere! I was so inspired by my Teammate Olga's monochromatic card last week that I wanted to try my hand at it and this is the result.
You can find complete instructions for my card at the Heartfelt Creations Blog, along with lots of inspiration from my fellow DT members. so be sure to stop in and check it out! here a close-up of my Peacock and you can find the list of Copic markers I used on the HC blog.

Heartfelt Wednesday Inspiration

Hi bloggers. Time for a little inspiration from Heartfelt Creations. My FAV-OR-ITE company! My project isn't a card today. I was so enthused my the warm weather we are having I wanted to do a spring looking wreath. Daisies always remind me of spring, haven't a clue why. It should be tulips, daffodils & such, but I have always marched to a different drummer, so why change now!
I have used the Delightful Daisy stamps & matching die to construct my wreath along with the Peacock Paisley paper pad. The Peacock feathers are from the Feathery Peacock stamp set. These are products from the new release for March. You can find the complete detailed instructions for this project HERE
Here's a close up of my sweeter than sweet daisies!
Thanks so much for stopping in today and be sure to stop in at the Heartfelt Blog and checkout all the gorgeous work from my Teammates!

Heartfelt Inspiration

Hi bloggers. Time for some inspiration from delightful Heartfelt Creations. Actually we are a day early, something about our fearless leader & jet lag, LOL. Thats OK by me, there's not a one of us that's perfect! The time flies so quickly for me with each collection. This will be my last post for the Butterfly Medley collection, but thank goodness we will be able to incorporate some of the elements from it into the upcoming collections from Heartfelt. Each new collection has a smidgen of previous themes, which I think is awesome! You can mix and match as you go along adding to your Heartfelt products. My card today can be seen on the Heartfelt Blog along with the complete instructions. My teammates have created a bevy of wonderful projects as well, so be sure to check them out!
My card today used two of the amazing butterflies from the Butterfly Medley. There are a total of ten, yes I said ten, butterflies to choose from in this release. I liked the way these looked with my scrolls, curly tails & all, LOL
Here a close-up of the Gala Glitz centers of my flowers. I just tried a container of it, which you can find HERE & I LOVE it! I see more colors of it in the future for me. :-)
Thanks for joining me today & come back soon. Next week will be the Peacock Paisley Collection release with all it's jewel toned splendor! Hope to see you then.
Hugs, Maureen
