Heartfelt Creations - Thoughtful Juliet

Hi Everyone and apologies for my absence.  I had two very busy weeks, but back today with my Heartfelt Creations post.  This card was made only using the Sweet Juliet Collection,  I took my colour inspiration from the background paper and continued from there.  A simple card in lovely rich colours!

Card Size: 12cm x 12cm.
Cut down a floral piece of paper from the collection to measure 11 1/2cm x 11 1/2cm.  Add the red ink around the edges and heat emboss.  Cut down some dark red card to measure 11 3/4cm x 11 3/4cm, adhere this to the main card blank using double sided tape.  Then adhere the floral paper over the top.  Die cut 3 flowers using the Juliet dies, 2 large ( 1 from dark red card and 1 from grey card) and 1 small using dark red card.  Form the flowers and secure using brads.  Create 3 holes through the card and attach the flowers using the brads to the card.  Die cut 3 vines, 1 from dark red card, 1 from grey card and 1 from dark red felt.  Cut them down, arrange around the flowers and adhere with glue.  Cut a strip of the Thinking Of You sentiment from the paper collection, cut down and adhere in place creating a dome effect.   Complete by adding the silver pearls.

The products used can be found on the Heartfelt Creations blog, along with more ideas and inspiration from the design team this week!  There is also a preview of the Floral Key Collection which releases on November 29th!

Heartfelt Creations - Tattered Fall Postcard

Good Evening to you all!
Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last post and also for all your support and votes that helped me continue on the Heartfelt Creations Design Team!
This is my card that was featured on the Heartfelt Creations blog yesterday.  A small, autumnal coloured card using the postcard stamp along with some felt, twine and a button!

Card Size: 4 1/8" x 3 3/8".
Using your Grand Calibur, cut two rectangles from cream card, using the 3rd and 5th dies from matting Basics A(counting the smallest as the 1st die).  Using a piece of low tack adhesive place the smaller die cut on top of the larger( this is only to keep it in place whilst stamping). Using the Kaleidacolor ink pad, ink up the postcard stamp and stamp directly onto these pieces firmly.  Separate the pieces and gently blend distress ink around the edges.  Using Matting Basics B, use the 4th die to cut a rectangle from dark brown card.  Use the 6th die to create your card blank.  Adhere the smallest two die cuts together and adhere the larger stamped image onto the card front.  Die cut the vine from brown card and orange felt.  Cut down and adhere to the front.  Wrap twine around the smaller image, create a triple bow and add a button.  Adhere to the card front using foam pads.
