I was first introduced to the company Heartfelt Creations when they were a vendor at the Big E Heirloom Rubberstamp Festival in June. Last weekend, I again visited their booth at the Scrapbook Expo for another demonstration and had no problem dropping $160 on some of their amazing products. Yikes! Even my friend Ginny from Maxam Made Studio witnessed said cash handover and gasped. When I say their cards, scrapbook pages and framed art pieces are stunning and elegant, this is an understatement. You have to look, touch and view these creations for yourself to see just how breathtaking they truly are. I'm talking layers upon layers of glitter, bling and "prills" (their version of small seed beads). The flowers are 3-dimensional and even "hanging" in the case of bleeding heart or literally blooming like the quilled mums. It takes cardmaking to a whole other professional level.
So, you are looking at my first two cards made using the Heartfelt Creations products. I definitely have a lot of practice before I get to a "designer" stage, but, I was mostly pleased (except for the HUGE mess created by sponging ink, glue and glitter!) It was nothing short of bad. . . It will be a while before my anxiety level is decreased enough to where I'm willing to try again! For both cards I used the Botanic Rose stamp and coordinating die, along with with gold prills. You can see how vastly different they are when shown in two separate color schemes. Do you have a favorite?
These cards will also be entered into the "Just Add Glitter" theme at Just Add Ink this week, because they qualify as Vegas shiny!
