Here's my 6'x6" wedding card for our friends who got married earlier this month:


Since our friends' wedding was outdoor and English themed (think tea and tea cups), I wanted to make an elegant but causal card. I settled with pinks, browns and silver/grey and I love how it turned out!


I made some pretty pink blooms and silver leaves and arranged these embellies around 2 hearts, one of which holds the sentiment.


I also made a matching envelope too!


Of course, being a wedding card I couldn't just leave it blank inside so I stamped a pretty swirl inside as well!

NOTE: Both sentiments used, paper collection and butterfly stamps/dies are now discontinued.

tuesday...Heartfelt Creations November Alumni Hop

Welcome everyone to my blog for the Heartfelt Creations November Alumni Blog Hop!

Be sure to leave a comment on all the participating blogs. One participant will be chosen to receive a $25 Gift Certificate. The more you comment the more entries you get into the random draw! Be sure the check the Winner Announcement on Sat, November 29. If you win, please send an email to Emma Lou and write "Winner of November Alumni Hop" in the subject line.

Hop ends on Friday, November 28th at midnight.

Here's my 4.25"x5.5" card:

The background of this card is made from scraps! I trimmed the strips to 4" and just added them to a scrap 4"x5.25" paper to hold them all together. I then machine stitched around the edge and randomly in between the strips.

I made a few vintage flowers and added some foliage and butterflies. Also, even though it looks elegant and big it is still standard A2 size and fits in a regular envelope for shipping. It's a win win!

sunday...OWH love/valentine cards

Happy Sunday! Today I want to quickly share some Love themed cards that I made for Operation Write Home!


I had so much fun playing with pink and reds since these are not colors I use often. Most of the papers are scraps (they were just too pretty to throw away!) so I made good use of them!

Here are some close ups:

This card is loosely based on Sketch #242.


This one is for the ODBD November Challenge (use hearts!). I like how simple but elegant it came out!


This one was a lot of fun to make! I saw the idea on pinterest and had to try it! I did include a few butterfly among the flowers and I love how it adds a little bit extra to the heart!


I was definitely thinking Spring with this "Thinking of you" card! Notice the boy and girl bird? (*heart*)

This one is based on Sketch #241 and is one of my fav!

Last but not least, this layered card uses bold patterns and colors but everything comes together because I used the black cardstock (and ink and faux stitching) to bring it together. I love that butterfly!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and have a great week!

thursday...snowflake challenge card OWH

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you are looking for the heartfelt Creations October Blog Hop,

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I want to share my non-Christmas card for OWH October ODBD Challenge!

I wanted to make a layered but clean and simple card (is that even possible?) so I just used Heartfelt Creations snowflakes dies (the only ones I have since in FL I don't need many snowflakes for my pictures!) and a few punched snowflakes that I made with my mother in law's punch (she lives in Seattle!) and added a simple sentiment to the larger layered snowflake. I embossed the background and machine stitched it to a blue snowflake paper. I love how simple but elegant it looks and because of the sentiment I used it can be used for pretty much anything and anyone!

He's a side view of the card:

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day! :)
