Belated Christmas Wishes!

Good Evening All!
A slightly different post today as I wanted to share with you all what my daughter made at school this year for Christmas, she is 7 1/2.  I had wanted to post this on Christmas Day, but with cooking for 15, there unfortunately wasn't a spare minute!  I was so impressed with this make! It is simply made out of clay and then painted.

Wishing you all a wonderful New Year's Eve!
Thank you all for reading my blog this year and leaving such lovely comments.  Looking forward to more crafting and inspiration from you all in 2014!

Heartfelt Creations - Keys To Destiny

Hi Everyone, hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and are now counting down to the New Year!
We have had some lovely days spent with family and friends and eating a little too much!

My card today is very CAS, but I like it very much!  It would make a lovely New Home or Bon Voyage card, would you agree?

Card Size: 12cm x 12cm.
Cut down a floral piece of paper from the collection to cover the card front.  Stamp the Burnished Keys onto white card using gold ink and heat emboss using clear embossing powder.  Die cut using the matching key die.  Select 3 keys and thread though the twine.  Create a triple bow then wrap around the card twice securing from behind using double sided tape.

Thanks for visiting me today,

I would like to enter my card into the following challenge:

Heartfelt Creations - Floral Key Collection - Encircled Keys

Hi Everyone, hope you are all nearly ready for Christmas which is getting very, very close now! Thank you also for the lovely Birthday messages I received last week, I had a lovely day!

Heartfelt Creations recently launched The Floral Key Collection which has a neutral, vintage colour palette.  The collection includes key and lock stamps along with the Burnished Key Die which enables you to cut all 17 images at once!  I have made a pink and girly card which could be used for many occasions.

Card Size: 12cm x 12cm.
Stamp the focal image onto pink card using black ink and heat emboss using clear powder.  Die cut using a circle die from the standard circles large(number 5 die, counting the smallest as number 1).  Also die cut a black circle using die number 6 from the same set and a white circle using die number 6, using standard circles small.  Layer these three together using foam pads. Die cut the Filigree Delight frame using brown, grey and cream patterned paper from the Floral Key Paper Collection.  Then cut this piece in half, form into a square and adhere together using glue. (Mine measured 10cm x 10cm).  Cut a square from black glossy card to measure 11cm x 11cm and a square from pink card to measure 10 1/2cm x 10 1/2cm.  Layer these onto the main card using double sided tape.  Adhere the main image to the centre.  Stamp the two matching keys using the Burnished Key Stamp and heat emboss with clear embossing powder, die cut using the matching die.  Create a triple bow from pink organza ribbon. Thread the keys onto the silver cord, tie around the centre of the bow and then into a bow.  Add to the main card using a hot glue gun to complete.
