Heartfelt Beautiful You Asters ~

Good morning! It is Heartfelt Wednesday!!! Today, I have a 12x12 layout for you using the flower pot die that was released this month! This die has so many options for cards, layouts and gift packaging ideas...check out the DT blog and view the possibilities. My layout features my  youngest daughter who is currently serving with YWAM. We miss her so much.
In other news, today is my last post as a Heartfelt Design Team member...It was a huge blessing to be part of this company in a small way. I congratulate the incoming DT and will miss all the talented ladies I had the privilege of working alongside.
Here is a closeup view of the details on the layout. I paired this with the tattered blosssoms.

My card features the delicate asters...Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Blog and see what the others have created for you today. There's also a sneak peek of the upcoming releases!

Have a wonderful Day!

SNSS Wildflowers Encouragement Tote ~


Good Morning everyone! I have a quick and easy project for you today.  I was at the Heirloom show last weekend and at the Sweet'nSassy make and take table, we made two styles of very pretty silhouette cards and I must say, I am addicted! I love how each one turns out unique and so pretty! Each one makes me think of myself - an artist.

So, I created 3x3 notecards with a matching tote. You can find directions for these adorable totes right here. I created mine from the youtube video at the bottom of the toot. I discovered I learn better that way. Seeing and hearing, You know, multi-tasking. lol.
These little beauties are Super Easy Peasy to create. So is the tote. Just ask the talented people on SCS.
 
First, I masked the section that I wanted to sponge using post it notes and sponged my choice of colours using Rangers applicators. Once I achieve the colour I like, I peeled off the masks and then stamped the wildflowers in versafine black. Wow, the euphoria...A masterpiece! 

If you get any crafting done and you use any of Sweet'nSassy stamps please be sure to let us know on SNSS' Facebook page or Splitcoaststampers member forum. We love to see what you create! 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Materials Used: 
Inks: Ranger Distressed Inks - Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick, Pine Needles, Versafine Black
Paper: SU Crumb Cake
Accessories: CTMH Brad

Be sure to visit the store to see all the images, beautiful dies and papers included in this collection. This collection makes you want to kick back, relax, breathe in the air and enjoy the scenery. My first card uses the Adirondack chair along the seashore surrounded by shells, sand and reeds...can you smell the salt sea air? All the details on this card are on the Heartfelt Blog. Be sure to visit what the other DT have created.

This card uses more of the images perfect for a masculine card! The small anchor is from one of the new dies sets in the collection. I love when a simple card packs a punch. I will create more of these cards.
