Decorative Basket collection

I've got another card to share with you today using a stamp from the new Decorative Basket collection that Heartfelt Creations recently released, plus two other cards for you (I'm enjoying a bit more time back in my craft room!)

Here's my favourite one I've done lately:

Products Used on This Project 
Other products used: Gold stickles, pop up dots, red ribbon from my stash, SU fine tip black marker, floral DP Copics used:  Y08, R35, R37, G85, G24, V15, V17, E43, E41, E40
Card size is 6.5x4.78 To create tiles cut out squares of DP, and then slightly larger squares of cardstock, adhere together, then glue to the base card stock leaving space in between.  Stamp main image, cut out with die cut, use die cut as stencil and use fine tip marker to add faux stitching along edge.  Colour image and then adhere to card using pop up dots.  Make a bow with ribbon, add a flower pearl centre to it, then adhere that to the card with a pop up dot as shown in the photo.

Next, is one I made featuring a wishing well stamp, I think this could be used for so many different things:

  1. So glad to see you're able to take some time for yourself! Love the blocked background on the first one! I think my favourite is the last one though. Like how you used the florals to frame the sentiment.

    Do let me know if you want to get together to play!

  2. Wow, what a beautiful collection of cards! I love all the squares for the background on the top card, the lace is so elegant on your center card and that wedding card just pops! I haven't popped by in a while, so it was nice to see what you've been working on :)

  3. yay nice to see you again!

    Love these cards, the squares on the first is great! and love that beautiful bouquet!

    I really love that wishing well!

    and lovely die and sentiment on the wedding card!

    Admire these a lot!

  4. all 3 are gorgeous, I love the last one, very clever!

  5. All your cards are gorgeous! Love the added dimension n the last one.
