Thank You Dogwood Foldout

Hello bloggers. I have a foldout card for you today featuring the Flowering Dogwood Collection which debuted last week. This collection is so beautiful and the flowers are a dream to make! I think the foldout cards that Heartfelt Creations are fabulous to work with. The collection of border dies that coordinate with them can really make your projects look professional. I LOVE working with them. So here is my pretty for today, I hope you enjoy it.

Showing sentiments within card and "Thank You" border die-cut.

Flowering Dogwood Release

Hello there bloggers. I am delighted to show you this new release today, Flowering Dogwood, it is stunning! I will use this collection for many occasions, Easter, sympathy, baptism, conformation, the possibilities are endless. Our sweet author Tracey has written up the most beautiful description for you all to enjoy!  

Heartfelt Creations invites you to usher in the spring season with the new Flowering Dogwood Collection!  Immerse yourself in this newest springtime assembling of designer papers, divinely detailed cling stamps and coordinating dies steeped with beautiful meanings and symbolism perfect for the Easter Season!  The dogwood tree is surrounded by a mesmerizing legend within the Christian faith…once the size of a mighty oak tree it was chosen to be used to construct the cross on which Jesus was to be crucified.  The tree became unhappy with its purpose and would never again grow large enough to ever build another cross.  Its branches would become narrow and crooked and no longer suitable for construction.  The delicate dogwood flower itself is a wonderful symbol of the Easter season…four petals that resemble the shape of a cross, the center laid as a crown of thorns, at the tip of each petal an indent resembling nail punctures, and a reddish hue around those indents resembling the blood of Jesus.  Soft and pastel in coloring, this newest paper collection reveals beautiful springtime shades of pinks, peaches, and greens which set stunning backdrops for scripted lettering and graceful swirls, while darker hints of blues and blacks bring out the gorgeous detail and coloring of the showy dogwood
florals.  Bountiful blossom filled branches, peaceful white doves and hillside chapels are just a few of the beautiful illustrations found within the cling stamp sets!  Assemble the perfect dimensional dogwood flower using the varying sized petals within the Flowering Dogwood Cling Stamps Set and die cut using the coordinating dies.  The ideal collection to send out springtime and Easter wishes to friends and family!

I hope you enjoy my card today it was such wonderful release to work with. I chose to create an Easter card, as it's will be here before we know it.

Here's a close-up of my pretty vellum Dogwood flowers.

Wildwood Wednesday from Heartfelt Creations

Hi bloggers, how are we doing today? Did any of you get to see the live broadcasts from CHA on the Heartfelt Creations Facebook page? They were really fun to watch and a sneak peek of the new collection for February & new daubers coming soon.  I believe they are still up on the page so you can still watch them. I have a tag to share with you today, featuring the Wildwood Cottage Collection. I purchased the trim from Create and Craft and now I'm kicking myself for not ordering more of it. Well I guess you live and learn. LOL

 Thanks for stopping in today and head on over to the HC Blog for complete instructions for this tag and lots of other beautiful works of art from my teammates.

Mid-west Winter from Heartfelt Creations

Hello bloggers! Greetings from the frigid mid-west. My diorama today is how I wish winter could truly be, and that's just plain old wishful thinking. I did a project similar to this for the debut of the Woodsy Wonderland from Heartfelt Creations which appeared in the video for it's release and also on the Create and Craft television show. But of course I forgot to take a picture of it, and didn't write down the directions, therefore it never appeared on the HC Blog. Sooooo now I am posting a "make-up" project just in case someone wondered why they couldn't find it, or how to construct one.  This one is not exactly the same, but very similar. I hope you enjoy it.

Here's a close-up of the deer and trees.

You can find complete instructions for this project HERE on the Heartfelt Creations Blog, along with some extraordinary work from my teammates!
