Wednesday at Heartfelt Creations - New Springtime Cardinal Collection

Good morning!  I am so excited to be sharing a couple of cards I made for my first week as a Design Team Member for Heartfelt Creations!  Today they are releasing the beautiful new Springtime Cardinal Collection.  This Collection features 8 new PreCut Sets. These new sets coordinate with existing exclusive Heartfelt Creations dies manufactured by Spellbinders. The images in this collection are very classic and elegant, perfect for coloring with your Copic markers and you will love the fact that they coordinate with some of the existing Heartfelt Creation dies - an added value for some of the dies you might already own.  To see the complete release, click here.

Here is my first card:


I made a 5 1/2 " square card started with a card base of Ivory CS. The patterned paper is from the Webster's Pages Country Estate Petite Papers.  I stamped the main image from the Heartfelt Creations Magnificent Cardinal Rose set with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White Iridescent and colored with Copic Markers.  I stamped and colored another single cardinal from the Heartfelt Creations Cardinal Family set.  This single cardinal was cut with the corresponding Heartfelt Creations Cardinal Family die and layered on the main image with foam tape.  The image is framed by a Spellbinders Lacey Square.  The sentiment is also from the  new Magnificent Cardinal Rose set.  It is cut with a Spellbinders Labels Four Small die. A bit of wrinkled seam binding finished my card.

Here is another card I made:


I started with a card base of SU Bordering Blue and made a standard A2 size card.  The patterned paper is from the K & Co. Julianne pad.  The main image is from the new Heartfelt Creations Spring Birdies and Roses.  It is stamped with Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  I stamped and colored a single corresponding cardinal from the Heartfelt Creations Cardinal Family set.  The single cardinal was cut with a Heartfelt Creations Cardinal Family die and popped up on foam tape.  The main image was framed with a Spellbinders Lacey Circle.  The sentiment is from the new set, Sentiments For Mom. It was cut out with Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio. Some wrinkled silk ribbon finished this one. 

One additional note: I used this week's Card Patterns Sketch #110 for my layout.

Be sure to stop by the Heartfelt Creations blog to see all the gorgeous creations from the other Design Team Members!  Leave a comment on my blog or on the Heartfelt Creations blog by April 19 and one lucky person will win the entire release valued at $119.92.
