Sweet Magnolia Series Part III *Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop*

Welcome to my post for the

Alumni Blog Hop!

Be sure to leave a comment on all the participating blogs. The hop closes on Monday, August 1st. The winner will be announced on the HC blog and on FB on Wednesday, Aug 3. Be sure to email
Heartfelt Creations at with
"Winner of the July Alumni Hop" in the subject line.

I have a process these days that once I cut in a paper collection, I go nuts. Therefore, I created a "series" of Sweet Magnolia. Here, we have two cards.  

These papers are from the Sweet Magnolia Paper Collection. The tags here were cut from Album Tags and Accents DieTicket and Tags Die, and Ornamental Tags Die.

The white, lacey piece is cut from Eyelet Lace Frames Die.

The flowers are stamped from Clematis Cling Stamp Set and cut from Clematis Die.

The little, fat birdie was stamped from Clematis Birdhouse and Trellis Cling Stamp Set and cut from Clematis Birdhouse and Trellis Die. I colored the birdie with Distress inks.

The flowers and leaves are stamped and cut from Flowering Dogwood Stamps and Dies. The pink, lacey piece and the tag piece with the butterfly is from Ornamental Tags Die. The eyelet circle is from Decorative Circle Frames Die.

The birdhouse, birds, and trellis were stamped from Clematis Birdhouse and Trellis Cling Stamp Set and cut from Clematis Birdhouse and Trellis Die. I colored the all of the pieces with Distress inks and a water pen. I love the whimsy and lightness of watercolors!

Heartfelt Creations birds are always so cute. Enjoyed the birdhouse and all its occupants. But the Butterfly card is so pretty and you did a fabulous job of layering all your cohesive elements. Of course the color choices are my favorite and just enhanced my enjoyment of your projects! Thanks for all your hard work.

Love the white lace piece inside #1, the front of #2 and those 3 cute birds on #3. You've been a bust card maker!!!
