A few cards...

Still enjoying cards with my Heartfelt Creations dies. The one below is for Paula (and I'm sorry I completely forgot your birthday!)  The sentiment is one of  Lin Brown's new plates over at PaperArtsy and the paper is ancient from my stash so probably not available any more.


I've been using spray adhesive to attach the glitter recently... it works quite well.  The centres of the flowers are smaller versions of the same die moulded with a ball tool. There are lots of videos on the HFC blog and their YouTube channel if you're interested.


And of course it was Mothering Sunday yesterday.  These papers are from a Teresa Collins paper pack and I've used a Spellbinders trellis die (perfect size for a 5 x 7" card)


Here's a close up . The flower centres are resin - I think they came from The Range.

My card is gorgeous. You have to actually hold it in good light to really appreciate how these flowers glimmer. Beautiful. :-)

Beautiful cards Carol. I love that trellis die and your treatment of the flowers gives them something extra.

we were forbidden from using spray adhesive at Uni.....the cleaners hated trying to clean it up!! I hope you had a lovely mothers day Carol.

Gorgeous cards, Carol. Love the colours on the first card and the trellis on the second.

I have the HFC dies and stamps but they're still in their packages...
