Hummingbird Cards

Over the past few months, I've seen and admired cards created with the Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies, so I finally signed up for a class at Personal Scrapbook and created three gorgeous cards.

These cards use several stamps and dies. All the pieces for each card were in a kit. The instructor did not tell us which sets the pieces came from, but I know we definitely used the Hummingbird stamps and dies. We also used several inks and daubers to color in the stamped images.

I learned how to use the Heartfelt Creations Flower Shaping Kit to shape the flowers, which adds beautiful dimension.

It was FUN to assemble these cards!

We even added bits & pieces inside the cards.

Have you tried any of the Heartfelt Creations products?

I used the Heartfelt Creation products when I was on a design team, but my style now is so CAS that most of the stamps don't seem to work well for me. I do love your layered and colorful cards!

No, I've not heard of Heartfelt Creation before. These are so pretty and intricate - glad you took the plunge and decided to take the class.

No, I'm another one who hasn't heard of them. But maybe that's because I don't have a die cutting machine. Your cards are so beautifully intricate and detailed
