i have some more peeks for you today!
first up is the adorable Heartfelt


please click on the image to enlarge it

isn't she just the cutest? & she is SO fun to color!! my mom crocheted me so many wonderful hats like this when i was little! i made an easel card so i could stand it up on my desk & see her all the time until i mail her ;) -she makes me super happy!

i cut up my daughter's outgrown, red, corduroy dress to use with my Hearts A Plenty, button quartet and little open scallop strip dienamics on this project. the thick, heavy fabric needed to be shimmed and i ran it through the cuttlebug several times, but the dies cut it beautifully! Here's a tutorial to create an easel card by the fabulous Beate! i love standing cards!

i CASEd some design and elements from this masterpiece by Susan Liles. i was also inspired by the dozens of amazing sentiment cards that the entire MFT Design Team have been creating. i've been dying to try a card like this for a long time, and i'm thrilled with the results! you so NEED this set!!

i embossed the heart on MFT creme paper panels- their weight gives the embossing extra depth and richness-it looks amazing in person. my sentiment (1 of 2 in the set) is stamped on vellum and put on top of a sponged nestie shape. the cherubs are stamped on vellum and popped up. The gorgeous faux crochet border dienamic and MFT's swarovski pearls were a perfect finish!
