Heartfelt Wednesday

Hi all! Hope you are having a good week so far. Wednesdays are Heartfelt Creations posting time and I continue playing with the fabulous November release Timeless Amour. This week I teamed it up with stamps from other collections as well. Like on the first card, I totally adore these  Tattered Blossoms, they have this gorgeous vintage look that goes so well with the new stamps and papers.

I can’t get enough of this heart die! Told you you’d see a lot of it… :) And this background stamp with a beautiful vintage text is also a very versatile stamp that will be used over and over again. I stamped it with Walnut stain on patterned paper so it gives a really soft and nice look, but to make it a tid bit more visible, I went over it with a glitter pen, so in the right light it will glitter some.

I used loads of stickles on the flowers and leafs too, so with the glitter accents on the background and the gems in the flowers, this brownish card really sparkles.
