YAY it's pink. If you love peonies and pink the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony Collection is for you. I've already started working with the collection and my fave is the Peony Bud and Blossoms Stamp Set. I was hoping Heartfelt would release a nice large flower stamp and this one is perfect. They always make my wishes come true. I started coloring these guys in as soon as I received them. They are just beautiful.
I colored this beautiful blossom in with the Arteza Brush Pen Markers. Watch for an upcoming video with a review of these markers and you'll be able to see snippets of me coloring them. In the meantime, if you would like to see a close up of the entire collection watch the video below. Stay warm everyone. Spring is coming!!!
Wow! This collection is truly gorgeous. I love the beautiful pastel colors. The cottage like garden scenes on the papers are a perfect match with the bird cage die and the lovely umbrella stamp spilling over with blossoms would make any shower invite a hit with the invitee's. I just had to create a card right away. This double fold card was easy to make using the papers from the pad for the background. The die that pops out a plentiful number of the little lilac blossoms combined with the new floral mold allowed me to quickly and easily create lots of three dimensional flowers.
I couldn't wait to die cut the bird cage and emboss it with a pretty sparkling turquoise powder. The cage was then glued to just one of the card panels. All that was left to do was to add the blossoms. In no time flat an elegant card to gift on a special occasion was complete.
Watch the video below to see the entire collection up close.
Find the entire collection in the "Newest Heartfelt" category in the store or search for the individual components in the papers, dies, or stamp sections. Think spring and be well to all.
I had so much fun coloring the boots and flowers from the Heartfelt Creations Singing in the Rain Collection. I just had to create some cute little cards with them. I used Dr. PH Martins inks and a small paint brush for the coloring. This was the first time that I had tried these inks on stamped images. I just loved working with the vivid colors. Although it takes a steady hand to paint the stamped images with a brush, I think it would be worth the time and effort when you are looking to create a strong presence of color.
If you would like to find the same colors that I used (which are from ink set #2), feel free to jump over to my affiliate store which leads to an amazon link page with the exact same ink set. The Heartfelt Creations Stamps and Dies are right here in the HuckleberryHerbs.com store. I used both the Rain Boots and Blossoms Stamp Set and the Raindrop Sentiments Stamp Set.
The video below does not show the coloring but instead the process of putting the cards together. In it I show you how to cut the little boots so that you can place your flowers into the top of the boot. I hope you enjoy the video.
I have been very busy with the Heartfelt Creations Singing in the Rain Collection. I just love the little boots and the rainbow with musical notes on it. I will be uploading a video using the stamps with Dr. PH Martin's Inks in the near future. See the close up of the collection in the video below.

Check out this video to watch me create beautiful carnations using one of the new Heartfelt Creations Floral Molds.
As promised, here is the tutorial on how to turn your New Heartfelt Creations Journal Pads into your new journal/planner for the upcoming year. I so enjoyed being able to create this book with the journal pads. I have tried to include Heartfelt Creations in my previous years planners but these pads made it so simple to do. With pages created just for this purpose, I could dig right in and start decorating and adding special sections. It would have been too time consuming and expensive to create this book using only the 12 x 12 pads. Now I can just place the journals into the binder and use my 12 x 12's for embellishments.
I am so glad that Heartfelt Creations decided to join in on Journaling which is so popular. Finally we Heartfelt lovers will be able to journal on our favorite papers. I've been busy with my journal creating calendars to add to my binder which fits the new pages perfectly. I have so many plans for these beautiful new pages. They come with samples from many different collections so every collector has something that matches the pages which are filled with inspiring sentiments and images. So fun.
The picture below is a sneak peek into an upcoming video sharing some of my ideas on what can be done with these new journals. For right now, check out the close up video below. In it you can see the journals, papers, and the new flower shaping molds. I'll be creating some videos showing everyone how they work to help you create lots of beautifully shaped flowers with ease. So many exciting new products from Heartfelt Creations.
Oh I've waited for this for a long time. I wanted a stamp platform to make stamping easier and so that I could re-stamp an image that came out poorly. But...I didn't want to overpay for one. I wanted to be able to use any sized paper that I chose to. I wanted to be able to use rubber and acrylic stamps both without having to purchase multiple tools. I wanted something that was versatile and made with sound construction. Was I asking for too much? Not according to Tim Holtz and Tonic Studio. I finally have it all in one wonderful stamp platform.
I'm looking forward to being able to mass produce cards with ease. I also want to try out some of that new (or maybe not so new because I'm a little slow sometimes:) layering stamping that's been all the rage. Masking will be a breeze. This is going to be so fun.
In this video I introduce the new Stamp Platform by Tim Holtz. You will see the unboxing and I even demonstrate a quick anniversary card using the Heartfelt Creations Wedding Collection Stamps. I hope you like this as much as I do. Enjoy!
The distress Oxide Re-Inkers are in the store. I am so excited about these. Not only can we keep our new favorite ink pads juicy, but with direct from the bottle techniques we'll have an excuse to use our new favorite inks even more.
