You're Special

Checking in today with a card for the My Favorite Things Sketch.


My card today was made with the new MFT Woodland Friends stamp and die sets, as well as a couple MFT background stamps and die-namics.

The images were colored with copic markers and popped up with foam tape.

All the Best


The SCS sketch challenge is a fun one today, its to make a long card.


For the challenge, I created my own designer paper with the new Stampin Up First Frost stamps, the images were stamped in Crisp Canteloupe, Bermuda Bay, Highland Heather, and Granny Apple Green. A bouquet was created on top with the same stamps and dies.  The twine and small label die are by MFT. 
The wood grain panel was created with the SU Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  Basic Gray and Crisp Cantaloupe ink pads were dragged across white card stock and then embossed with the folder, afterwords the Basic Gray was rubbed across the paper to bring out the wood highlights.


The SU Corrugated Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder is definitely my new favorite, it gives such amazing texture!  I used dark gray card stock with it, and also for my mat.

Such a fun card to make!

DJ

Squirrel Friends

Howdy Friends!
It's that time of the week for the Heartfelt Creations Inspiration Blog! Please join us today, the blog is full on wonderful inspiration!


As with last week, I'm playing around with the wonderful squirrels from the Furry-tailed Frolic Stamp and Die sets.  I colored these, as well as the acorn from the Oakberry Cottage & Sentiments set with Zig Markers.  The background papers are from the Oakberry Lane Paper Collection, and I created a scene using the trees from the Woodsy Treescape set and the wildflowers from the Backyard Blossoms set, the trees were sponged with Bamboo Leaves and the wildflowers with Cactus Flower.


The new Oakberry Lane Blossoms were stamped in Stazon Iris and sponged with Lulu Lavender and Bamboo Leaves,  all the flowers and leaves were sculpted with the 3d Blossoms Shaping Mold,  prills added to the centers, and Crystal Clear glitter added for lots of sparkle.


The lace trim was created with the Sweetheart Borders Die, just the edge is peaking out.  The scalloped oval frame was created with the Eyelet Oval & Basics Large and Small Dies.

Swinging By

Greetings Friends!
It's that wonderful time of the week when we celebrate inspiration and the wonderful release of the Oakberry Lane Collection on the Heartfelt Creations Blog.


The new release is filled with the cutest squirrels, this is my favorite, in his little tire swing, colored with Zig markers.  Also in the new release, are these gorgeous flowers and leaves from the Oakberry Lane Blossoms Cling Stamps and Dies.  I stamped and sponged mine with Memento Lulu Lavender and Archival Forget-Me-Not (the centers were sponged with Bamboo Leaves), and sculpted them with the 3D Blossoms Shaping Mold, also available in the new release.  The leaves were stamped in Bamboo Leaves and sponged with Bamboo Leaves and Lulu Lavender. Lots of Crystal Clear glitter was added to the flowers for sparkle.


All of the designer paper you see here is from the Oakberry Lane Paper Collection.


So fun to mix the whimsical image of this sweet squirrel with the elegant flowers!



This adorable sentiment and scalloped circle die also come with the Furry-tailed Frolic Cling Stamp and Die sets.
