Heartfelt Creations Inspiration by Tesa Broman & Giovana Smith!

One of my lovely coworkers here at Simon Says Stamp, Liz, has recently adopted Heartfelt Creations as one of her brands. She is truly a great brand-mother and is always searching for neat inspiration and up-to-date info on the brands she manages.

Recently, she showed me some inspiration from the Heartfelt Creations blog by Tesa Broman and Giovana Smith and with their permission, we decided we've got to pass it on to you too!!

By Giovana Smith:
Instructions for this elegant card:

Make card base from Ivory Cardstock. 5" square Card. Cut a 4.75" square piece of Cardstock, emboss it and ink all edges. Tie on Ivory ribbon. Die-cut Leafy Spray from HCD 712 Bella Rose Die (soon to come to Simon Says Stamp!) from Ivory CS, ink all edges and glue it to card. Stamp sentiment on Ivory Cardstock in Vintage Photo Ink, Die-cut, emboss and distress it. Adhere it to card with foam dots. Adhere Star Dust Stickles to leaves and set to dry.

How to make these lovely tags:

Tag 1: Cut tag out of cardstock. Aprox 2x5. Glue down torn book paper pieces and cover with a thin layer of gesso. Stamp birdhouse and mask it with post it note paper. Spray pink glimmer mist. Let dry. Ink the edges with chalk. Stamp butterfly on scrap paper and adhere on bookmark. Die cut swirls and cut small pieces of it and ad to the "tails" of the buterflies. Tie a bow and adhere on bookmark with a button.

Tag 2: Make tag out of cardstock and stamp the birdhouse. Mask the birdhouse with post it note papers and stamp the Vintage word background with misty blue ink. Spray with blue glimmer mist and let dry. Stamp the bee twice and heat emboss. Color and cut out. Stamp the birdhouse on water color paper, paint the front rose and cut out. Adhere rose and bees on bookmark. Add glitter glam to the wings and add a ribbon and a button on top of the tag.

Thanks so much to Tesa and Giovana for sharing your work with us!

Have fun!
