A Heartfelt Creation with Creative Embellishments

H bloggers! Hope you are having a great week so far. Things here in the mid-west are winding down. The days are shorter and the nights are a bit colder as we inch closer to the dreaded "W" word. Oh I am so NOT ready for it, and I mean that literally! I am hanging on to fall as long as I can. My project today, made with Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose and Blushing Rose collections is rich in fall colors and I have added these great embellishments from Creative Embellishments! I used the chipboard word and wooden fall leaves for my project. You can head over to their blog to some beautiful layouts , card, and altered projects. I think they have one of the very best collections of chipboard and wood laser cut embellishments I have ever seen. The intricate detail in the pieces is spectacular!! The prices are great as well, oh and I almost forgot, they are having a Design Team Call right now which closes on Nov. 14th. Check it out girls and guys. I say, jump right in and get you feet wet! Enjoy!

Remember to head over to the Heartfelt Creations Blog for complete instructions for my window, and check out all the lovely pieces accented with this great companies pieces.
Thanks for stopping in today.

Heartfelt Clean and Simple

Hello bloggers. I am trying my hand at clean and simple this week. I have never been very good at it, but every now and again I give it a try. I thought the Blushing Rose Collection image called 
Blushing Rose Swirls was so pretty I didn't want to take away from it.  I colored it with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, what a zinger of a name, huh! They are wonderful to work with and there are quite a few tutorials out there for them. I am loving them so far! I stamped the image with Versamark and used white embossing powder. Something new for me with water coloring and I think the look is fantastic.

I hope you enjoyed my card today and you can find complete instructions on the
 Heartfelt Creations Blog, along with tons of inspiration from my teammates.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Heartfelt Creations Blushing Rose Release

Hello bloggers, how are you today? This release is an addition to last months Classic Rose and it is called Blushing Rose Collection from Heartfelt Creations of course! I love this one and once again our monthly author divine, Tracey, has written an exquisite description for this one. I truly think this girl should write a book or at least some poetry. Every month her words thrill us all. Aren't we lucky?

Imagine a pristinely decorated, old fashioned parlor filled with charming antiques, vintage wallpaper and the finest assembling of handsome rose patterned china offering up delectable treats and deliciously fragrant tea!  Amidst the refreshments, and scattered throughout the quarters you are drawn to lavish rose bouquets in every color imaginable, plucked from the pristine rose garden just outside the elegantly draped garden doors. As you glance around it is clear that this exquisite sitting room has been adorned for a very special occasion!  Heartfelt Creations invites you to sit, relax and indulge as they unveil the new Blushing Rose Collection!  Soft in hues and striking in patterns, this newest rose themed release will have you reminiscing of old fine bone china, lace tablecloths, and elegantly wallpapered sitting rooms.  Delicate images of swirling roses, fluttering butterflies and vintage scripted postcards nestled among old fashioned wallpaper like stripes, beautiful brocades and decorative lace accents have been gently set against calming tones of pale yellows, mixed blends of greenish blues, and soft lilacs.  The delicate, illustrations of rose clusters and single stemmed roses found within the cling stamp sets will bring back memories of the ravishing patterns on Grandma’s finest tableware that were kept behind glass and only made an appearance for the grandest of occasions.  Paired together with the coordinating stamps, the ornate dies in this collection will allow you to create enamoring rose motif die cuts perfect for all of your paper crafting needs.  A large focal background stamp, along with a full assembling of all occasion sentiments are the perfect window dressings to complete your soft and romantic vintage style rose themed creations. We invite you to enjoy the finest in paper crafting as we present the Blushing Rose Collection!

So here you go, my inspiration gathered from this bounty of gorgeous stamps and dies. Enjoy!

Here's a close-up of this wonderful image, oooh, ahhhhh, sigh.......

Thanks for joining me today and remember to fly on over to the HC Blog for all the rosy goodness and complete instructions for each and every project.

Heartfelt Happy Anniversary

Hello bloggers! Hope you're off to a great start today. It's been so beautiful here the past few days I can hardly believe it's fall. I am hoping this isn't what they call "Indian Summer", way too early for that. Whatever it is I'll take it! I used the Chameleon markers for this image, love the violet colors. Anything that is even closely related to purple sets my heart all aflutter! I hope you enjoy my creation for today, made with the Classic Rose Collection from Heartfelt Creations.

Thanks for stopping in today and remember you can find complete instructions for my cards, plus a lots of my teammates wonderful work on the HC Blog.
Come back soon
Hugs, Maureen
