Heartfelt Wednesdays...

Hey stamping friends,

I have a few NEW projects that I worked on for Heartfelt Creations this weekend and I wanted to share them today.  Make sure you head over to the Heartfelt Creations Blog to check out the fabulous creations my fellow Design team sisters have posted this week.  I know you'll find at least one FAVORITE!  

Here's my first card for the week.  I think it has to be one of my most favorite cards in a long time.  I love the "artsy" look and the spritzing, for sure.  I'm kinda on a Kraft kick lately...Not much patterned paper...Yes, I have TONS and I guess I'm hoarding that too, but I like my plain cardstock that I can stamp all over!  LOL...
Isn't it pretty?  I love how it just all came together.  I'm glad I still have that heart Cuttlebug folder...It works perfectly with this design.  
I think the little black tag looks kinda like a tag on some clothes, what do you think???
Here are the DEETS:


Cuttlebug Hearts Embossing Folder
Kraft, Black, Currant Cardstock
My Minds Eye Patterned Paper (A Happy Heart 6x6 pad)
Sparkly ribbon from Michaels
Silver flatback bling (colored with Dark red Copic)
Tsukeniko Fireworks glittery spray:  Black
Black India Ink
Ranger Distress Ink:  Worn Lipstick, Pink, Vintage Photo
Gold Glitter Embossing Powder (Stampendous
Black Machine thread
Pop Dots

Now for my second card:

I love it when I have dreams about certain projects and this is one of the projects I dreamed of making the other day!  I stamped the carnations onto kraft cardstock then colored with watercolor pencils, then after that, I used some Heartfelt Creations sticky tape and added microfine glitter all over the image.  It's a pretty simple card, and before it was glitzed up, it was quite bold with the coloring...I love how the glitter tones down the colors and just makes them peek through.  
I've been saving those little metal flower brads FOREVER.  I don't know why I buy stuff and let it just sit forever without using it...I guess, I just LOVE the stuff TOO much and can't let go of it.  This time, I tried using the brads and the flowers broke off two of them before I got one brad to work.  I guess the soldiering isn't the greatest, and they just pop off!  Ugghhh...
Here's a closer peek at the coloring.  I used yellows, pinks, and oranges on some of the carnations and greens and blues on others. I also tied some new pink/white twine I got from the Twinery!  Nope, that was a new purchase, and WAS Used right proud of myself!
Here are the DEETS:

"Pretty Carnations"

India Ink
Staedtler Watercolor Pencils, watercolor brush
White Ribbed Cardstock base
Kraft Cardstock, colored cardstock
Pink Ribbon (Michaels)

  1. I love both of these projects but I think the first is my favorite! I just love the layout and design elements on that one.

  2. i think the saving of things comes with the hobby. i don't know how many things i've bought then never use cause i don't want to run out!! great cards!

  3. Both cards are great!! You do CAS so well. I'm lovin' the kraft you've been using... goes so well with that shade of red!

  4. Wonderful, earthy colors and beautiful accents, Kerry...both of these cards are gorgeous!
