Thank You

Hi Bloggers.

I forgot to re-draw the 1000 followers Giveaway on Monday - sorry! So, as it hasn't been claimed the new winner is .........


Please email me at with your address and I'll pop your prize in the post.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I inked through the Elegance Border Mask with Faded Jeans Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I did this 3 times across the card. I then popped it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Extra Flint Embossing Folder.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Natures Sentiments Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Lake Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Stately Circles and inked through the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

I stamped the Heartfelt Creations Striped Sunkissed Fleur using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut out using the Sunkissed Fleur Die. I did this a couple of times so I had plenty of flowers to choose from. I coloured a selection of flowers in using Milled Lavender and Tumbled Glass Distress Markers roughly following the stripes in the design. I shaped the flowers, stacked them up and added some White Pearls to the centres.

I cut some leaves out of Cobalt Card (no stamping on these) using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown, adding some more white pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Don't forget to check out the Sunkissed Fleur projects and videos in the archive section on the Heartfelt Creations Blog.

Thanks for stopping by.

  11. Hi Julia. This is my first comment on your blog. I have only just found your blog thus week and that us because I caught your show with Nigel May on C & C at the weekend. What a laugh. I love today's card, but then I also like blue. X

  12. Hi Julia. Another great card. As always, I love blue and white and those flowers sre fab. Take care.

  13. Good morning Julia today's card is gorgeous. I am very tempted to by the stamps and die sets but I promised myself I would be good - what a dilemma. Have a good day. Jackie

  14. Good morning Julia,
    I like the narrower contrast borders that you have made on today's card, as it makes it look more stylised. I have fallen in love with this stamp and die set as it is so true to like done in the right colours it could be garzinias( i think thats the right flower). its lovely how you have put them around the stately circles die. All in all a lovely card that could be adapted in any colour to make it softer in pastel shades or bright in your face.
    Thank you JUlia,
    Love and crafty hugs
