Heartfelt Creations: Butterflies, Birds and Swirls...

Hello! Today I have a couple of Heartfelt Creations cards to share with you!  The new Garden Romance collection is so beautiful.  I have had fun creating many different styles of cards with this collection.  My first card I used some sponging for color, but let the stamps do the talking.  Instructions and supplies are as follows:

HCD 723 Garden Romance Die
HCPC 3479-Wings Of Hop PreCut Set
HCPC 3480-Brookside Manor PreCut Set
HCPC 3354-Classic Message PreCut Set
other product: white, black cardstock; Licorice ink-Clearsnap; Bordering Blue, Pacific Point, Night of Navy inks by SU; Stampendous snow glitter, glossy accents, sponges
Fold white card base so that it measures 4.25" x 5.5". Cut black cardstock panel to measure 5.5" x 2.25". Cut white cardstock panel to measure 5.5" x 2".  Stamp butterfly swirl image in black onto white panel two times so that the swirl looks continuous. Next using blue inks (start with lightest) sponge inks around swirls as desired. I like to have the lightest shade toward the middle of the panel and then work my darker inks around the edges.
Next stamp one large and three small butteflies from the Brookside Manor set. Using matching dies to cut. Add glossy accents and glitter to wings and then adhere over matching images on image panel.  Mat image panel with black panel and adhere towards left side of base. Stamp sentiment in lower right corner.

 This next card could be given for a man or woman's birthday.  The birds soften it a bit, but I love the look of the wood on the "on".  Supplies and instructions are below:

HCD 723 Garden Romance die
HCPC 3479-Wings Of Hope set
HCPC 3480-Brookside Manor
HCPC 3481-Add On Sentiments
other products:  Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Ranger Antique Linen distress ink; Versamark ink, kraft and white cardstock; Crate Paper designer paper Farmhouse collection; copic markers-E57, E35, C-1; black baker's twine
Fold kraft card base to measure 4.25" x 5.5".  Using Versamark ink, stamp bird swirl image over entire cardbase.  Cut wood ruler image from designer paper and adhere towards left side of card base.  Cut white cardstock panel to measure 4.25" x 2.5". Sponge Antique Linen distress ink around edges.  Stamp larger and small sentiment onto white panel and color "on" with copic markers as stated above.  Stamp the two doves from Brookside Manor set onto white cardstock and use coordinating die to cut.
