Heartfelt Creations Cards using the 'Raindrops on Roses Collection'...Wednesday DT Reveal


Dear Bloggers,
Here are some cards I created using the 'Raindrops on Roses Collection'
I especially love the Raindrops on Rosettes PreCut Set of stamps.  The floral spray is so beautiful and it stamps with such fine attention to detail that it has become one of my favourites.  I used it to create the background in the wedding LO and here it adds some lovely detail and texture to the frame.

Wednesday DT Reveal for Heartfelt Creations - Raindrops on Roses


Dear Bloggers,
Here is the Wednesday DT reveal from Heartfelt creations Design team.  This is a special LO as my daughters best friend had a very unexpected pregnancy and she did not find out until quite late on.  Everyone was very unsure and lots of big changes followed.  The outcome was a beautiful baby boy and as you can see from the total look of love on his father's face ...it was all meant to be.    Little Jax is safe in his father's arm and the world is good.

Cutting out and colouring Daisy Patch Flowers by Heartfelt Creations

Dear Bloggers,
This morning I had a little session making Daisy Patch Flowers. (They are just gorgeous).  I stamped the images by Heartfelt Creations with 'timber brown' Staz On' and cut them out with the coordinating dies.  Colouring them with my water colour crayons was so easy and effective.  The Neo-color 2 are so creamy and beautiful to use.  Initially I scribbled them onto an acrylic block, added water and used a brush to pick up the watery colours. Later I added the crayons directly to the paper and then washed over with a watery brush to blend the colours.


 


The Daisy Patch Flowers look beautiful when you shape them.  I spritzed the flowers lightly with water and on my moulding mat I used my stylus and gently rolled it inwards starting from the outside of the petal.  I tried to photograph this action but I had to hold the camera in my right hand and demonstrate with my left so it looks a little wonky.


 

Here are some of the dried and shaped flowers.
 

and some more
 
 and even more.


I went on to stack the flowers and use them in cards and layouts but you will have to wait until the March Release at Heartfelt Creations to see that!!!!

Thanks so much for calling by.
