Having Fun with Heartfelt Creations Ariana Blooms

December 27, 2015

Welcome back

I hope you all had a good Christmas and got lots of new craft supplies.  I have just received the Heartfelt Creations Ariana stamp and die set and I just love these stamps.  It is strange using the rubber stamps again but these stamps had good adhesion to my acrylic blocks and gave a nice crisp image.  It is also great to have a matching die to save my hands for fussy cutting.  I have had some fun with using different inks and finishes and here are my first efforts.

I have used a combination of Le Vie En Rose papers and Black and Pomegranate cardstock from CTMH for my first card.  I love the combination of the gold embossing on the flowers and the gold Peelcraft edging and corners and the black of the Heartfelt Creations eyelet oval die.  I have cut two sets of flowers to create these flowers.  I haven’t put a sentiment on the front as it blocked the beautiful paper.  I am waiting for some beautiful Spellbinders dies and will look at doing something inside the card instead.  However, I do find that some people like to have blank cards for different purposes.

Here is a close up of the flowers.  The photos really do not show the vibrancy of the colours.

I have stayed with a very elegant cream and gold combination for my second card. I have used Peelcraft stickers for the corners, edging and the tag and sentiment.

Finally here is a little fun 4″ x 4″ card I have made with this single layer flower and the Raindrops on Roses die from Heartfelt Creations.  I have sponged the centre with Buttercup ink and the edges of the petals with Pomegranate ink.
