Farewell To Heartfelt Creations

Hello bloggers!  I have a Heartfelt Creations card for you today which will be one of the last that you will see from me using this range.  We have decided not to carry this line any longer as we feel that the direction we would like to take the Creative Expressions range lies in a different direction to Heartfelt Creations.  Nikki Payne has also left our team and has chosen to do the shows directly for Heartfelt Creations on Create and Craft.  I know that many of you wait to see just what I will do given a specific stamp or die set from Heartfelt Creations, but after I post through the last few samples from my January show, there will be no more samples of Heartfelt Creations put up on the blog.
I started this card by stamping the Majestic Blooms on to silver card using a Clear Perfect Medium pad.  I heat embossed the stamped image with Silver shine embossing powder for a tone on tone look.  Rather than cutting out the flowers, I decided to use the stamped piece as a background for my card.  I added a scored strip in white to the bottom of the card.  I cut a border from an older set called Lace Doily Accents which I added to the join between the two pieces.  I tied a messy bow out of white seam binding and spritzed it with water and crumpled it for a shabby chic look.  I added it to the side of my card and made a flower to add to the centre of it.  The Bella Rose Swirl was added as an accent to it.  The focal element started with the Raindrops on Roses die cut in white.  I cut it in half and taped it so it showed behind the silver oval.  I stamped my sentiment and embossed it in silver then cut it out with the Fancy Tags Two die and mounted it in the centre.  I made a few more flowers from another stamping of the Majestic Blooms and added them to the upper corner of my focal element.  I finished the card with a double white pierced mat layer.  Finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Best wishes.

Hi sue. A very pretty and elegant card the colours are beautiful. Its nice to see you use some of the older dies on your card. Shame about heartfelt but if its time to move on to new projects then it has to be done and as you say nicky will still bring them to the shows. Now all we can do is wait to see what you are going to inspire us with next. Hopefully we will not have to wait to long. Good Luck.
Best Wishes

Hi Sue. What a beautiful card. Love the majestic blooms and they look gorgeous as single flowers and as a background. If things didn't change at all you wouldn't have created your own die range! Where would we be then? Have a good weekend. Take care.

Absolutely love every single element of this card, Sue, to me it's a masterpiece! Wonder where your new directions at CE will take us? Have never bought a Heartfelt Creations item but always enjoyed the cards you have shown.

'P' in Wales
Thanks to Karen, Norah, Steph, Lynda for more kind words re Molly and pet loss. Just a last word about her - she always used to sit on the newspaper (right hand side of course so you couldn't turn the page without shifting her!) when I read it at the table. Now there is a vacancy and it seems that Toppi, a little shy ex-feral tortie, has grabbed her chance. Molly was so protective of her place on my lap that no-one else got a look-in - actually she was a bit of a bossy-boots. Now, well, it seems to be turn for turn. Gosh how I miss her, but we thankfully have others to love as much.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Shame about Heartfelt Creations as I really do like them! However, we will still be able to get them and I can't wait to see what Creative Expressions come up with. Today's card is very elegant, love the majestic blooms .

Morning Sue, Oh no !! it is 'Sad Friday' for me, I am so upset that you won't be showing us anymore Heartfelt Creations, I absolutely love their dies and stamps, and I have loved that you showed us lots of different ways of using them.
I am now wondering what 'path' CE will be taking, oh !! teaser, Sue.
I am so loving this card, the silver colour is stunning, and I'm loving how you have used the flowers stamp as your background, that is really beautiful.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good morning Sue
Although I love Heartfelt Creations I know Creative Expressions will bring us something new and exciting and can't wait to see what's in store for us. Today's card is fabulous and it is so nice to see one of your 'old' dies getting used. Funnily enough it was the one I used yesterday and was the set of dies that I used for my stepson's wedding stationary.

GM Sue - how intruiging! HC is a lovely range - I really like the rain drops on roses and the majestic blooms - that has become a fave flower of mine. I await with great expectation what is to come from CE - I am sure we wont be disappointed as you always come up trumps.

Hi Sue sad day really as I love the HC dies and stamps especially Raindrops on Roses. I am sure Creative Expressions will continue to thrill us with lots of products and your new range is stunning. Thank you for sharing and for all your inspiration. X

Sue Dunn said...

Good morning Sue. The silver and white is lovely. Never thought to use the stamp only and not cut them out. I'm sorry to hear that you won't be using heartfelt creations in future. I do love their sets. I also loved to get inspiration from you in how to use them. I look forward to seeing creative expressions progress too, but would hVe liked to be able to experience both side by side. Still one can't stand still and change makes the world go round. Have a great weekend. Xx

Good Morning Sue, I love everything about today's stunning offering. Colour and content is fantastic.
For one moment I thought Heartfelt Creations had ceased trading!!!!! I love and have loads of their Dies, stamps & papers. I am very interested in what Creative Expressions have to offer ........ you are teasing us again!!!. Fantastic I am sure and with you there we will all be headed in the right direction.
Have a great weekend

Lovely card, as usual. Sorry to hear that you won't be demonstrating heart felt creations any more, you have introduced me to a few of my favourites, but as you have so many of your new products to show us, we will not be totally bereft of projects.
Good luck to all, present and past, on the design teams

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
A beautiful card made with a beautiful set of stamps and dies. I love how you have used the flower stamp that you would normally cut out as a background. As everyone else has said i will miss your inspirational touch on the Heartfelt Creations little pieces of wonder that they bring out, but you must follow your heart and do what is right for you. If you hadn't taken that leap of faith in the first place, we wouldn't have a wonderful and inspirational friend to talk to each day. Now, what i wonder lies ahead for us in inspiration because i don't think that you took this decision lightly and there must be a very good reason which we will find out in the fullness of time. Good luck to Nikki thou with HC.
Oh i hope it is a lovely morning where you all are because those pesky clouds are nabbing my hills again today. I'm saying clouds but it is one big massive cloud up here with not a bit of blue sky to be seen.
"P" in wales, i am glad that someone else is taking the chance to be loved that wee bit more. Another will never take the place of Molly as they all have their own wee character, but you have love to give in abundance and a little one needs that and clap and cuddle. A house is just that without a 4 legged friend to come home to, it takes love to make it a home. So Toppi, enjoy your new found spot, as your mummy needs that little piece of warmth on her knee and someone to clap. Tina, i hope you are starting to get back some of your sparkle. It can be a long road, but keep Berkeley live in your heart and mind and she will never be far away. I wish i could say something profound that would take your grief away, but i can't as i am not that clever but you are in my thoughts flower.
Well i hope everyone has a lovely weekend, Cameeli enjoy your allotment as you wouldn't believe just how much your body tones up over a short space in time doing all that bending. As an ex green bowler (for obvious reasons it's ex) i could drop 2 dress sizes in the first few weeks of the season just because of all the bending and walking(21 ends), so have fun Cameeli. Steph hoping you are a bit better since test day and are giving those pesky flakes and micro beads a leathering from your tongue so that they are beaten into submission.
See you all tomorrow my lovely friends,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Anne Crawford said...

A suitable card to end with ,going out with a glorious flourish, you did them proud in every way , I am sad you won't be demoing their products anymore as I do like them but as others have said I'm sure you'll have more exciting projects ahead with Creative Expressions so we will all look forward to those.( you will be a hard act for Nikki to follow)! So All The Best for your next chapter.xo

yorkielass said...

Hello Sue, This card is so pretty and elegant, would not have though to use the stamp as a background. I love the Heartfelt dies and stamps but change is a good thing and can't wait to see what CE will bring us in the future.
P in Wales Molly will be in your heart forever, she sounds as though she was a little character, Toppi will make your hurt less painful and your lap less empty.
Love and hugs to Tina.
Take care everyone.
Hugs June xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes. An amazing card today Sue, I just adore how you make it all work together. I have always loved HC dies and stamps, but never ever got round to buying any, and im not sure why !
Life is a constant round of changes and new beginnings, up's and down's, so although you and your team will no longer working with HC's Im sure both you and your loyall Wilsonettes have an awful lot to look forward to : )
Spoke to Tina last night and she is going through all the natural grieving process as I am so we are talking it through knowing exactly how each other is feeling. It takes time to want to get involved with 'life' again, but Im sure that in Tina's own time we shall see her make the odd comment, but she is SO grateful to you Sue and everyone here that care about how we are.
Sending Friday love n Hugs to you all (even though I was adament it was Sunday when I woke) !!!

Hi Sue, Life takes many different changes of direction. You all have to be on the same path to make it work. If not, then you have to part. Everything happens for a reason. Heartfelt have had CE to showcase their products to the world. Not all companies have that chance. Now we wait to see what exciting things, CE and yourself, are going to bring us. Lovely card this morning too! Hugs, Carol S.xx

Hi Sue. Another beautiful card today. I love everything about it !! It is such a shame that you will no longer be demoing products for Heartfelt Creations.

Hello Sue, I am wondering if you could help me. I am trying to find reversible ribbon like the one you used in your Best Birthday Wishes card that you posted on 5th July 2013. I know that this is a long time ago in the world of crafting but I need to get some for a card that has been ordered and I can't seem to find it anywhere so thought I'd ask you where you got yours from. Thank you for taking the time to read this

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue
Another stunning card today and have always loved heartfelt creations stamps and dies. However, I look forward to seeing what CE has in store for us in place of them. We will still be able top see what is coming up on their blog and on Nikki's as well.
You do like to tease us Sue. Julia today has used your quilted flower embossing folder, and I know you have some new ones coming out. BUT WHEN SUE?. I must go and see if I can find any reference to them somewhere. Good luck with CE's new adventure and whatever you bring us will be absolutely fantastic as usual.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Another drop dead gorgeous card for us today - I love everything about it.
It's a shame that we won't be seeing your creations with HFC dies/stamps but I am more excited about your stamps and dies, they can't be on the market soon enough for my liking. And I'm looking forward to whatever CE will bring to us in future.
And like Tres, I would like to see more cards with your dies and stamps. And for Tres, there's an excellent tutorial already on how to make Roses - certainly one with the stamped blossoms and you just apply that principle to the roses dies. But somewhere in the back of my mind there's also a recent video where that technique is included..........
To all the Wilsonettes, have a beautiful day.
Hugs 2 u, Sue

Hi Sue, love today's card. Looking forward to seeing what the "different direction" brings. I'm guessing/ hoping that your own new die range is part of it, I do hope so as they're stunning. As for CE all good things must come to an end.

Good morning Sue
A truly beautiful card today love the colours and the elegant way you have added everything to make yet another Wilson masterpiece. So sorry to hear the news about Heartfelt Creations but as they say as one door closes another door opens, looking forward to what will come.
So pleased that P in Wales is able to remember fond memories and is not just focusing on what has gone. As our vet told me smile with love, fondness and thanks because you had your corgi, rather than the loss of him. This said as she wiped a tear away as she was very fond of him.
Sending warm wishes and hugs to those in need of them.
Enjoy your gardening Cameeli this weekend and anyone else, hope the sun is out!

Sam Smithard said...

Hi Sue, What a truly beautiful Card you have brought us today, I Just Love The Awesome Background, and the use of the Raindrops on Roses Die which I have, I don't utilise my Dies as much as I should, and those Beautiful Elegant, Classy Flowers just Stunning, a Truly Beautiful Card just love it!
I like everyone love Heartfelt Creations, But I know for sure you'll be bringing exciting items to us, you bring Stunning Awesome JustRite Stamps to us that I just Love, You have now your Own Elegant Range of Dies, and you've been designing Stamps with the support of an Artist for quite sometime, recently you've brought us "Taylored Expression". I can remember following You in the very beginning you had some Stamps from Creative Expressions and they were off a Indian Chief and You took them onto Create and Craft! to show "Out Of The Box Technique" with basic Spellbinder Dies, such a long time ago, so everything You share with us has been a great experience and I know the Future will be no different, you've brought us the Awesome Video's which are
extremely professionally made and we all just love them, so Sue thank you for sharing Heartfelt Stamps and Dies with us Good Luck to Nikki!
Take Care Sue Love and Hugs from Sam x
To All a The Wonderful Wilsonettes, I truly hope your well this, believe it or not FINE SUNNY DAY! yes I'm in shock it was really raining at 6:00 a.m. but now very different so I hope it's the same for you wonderful ladies.
Take Care My Friends Hugs from Sam x

Brenda Lello said...

Hello Sue,
A really beautiful card today, I love the tone on tone embossing - it just works, be it silver, white, gold - any colour, tone on tone is really classy. Another thing I really like about today's card is this design could be interpreted with lots of other dies /stamps we have in our stash.
My very best wishes to you and Creative Expressions for the future, I know we the blog family will not miss out, as you both always bring us the best. Thank You.
Take care, love Brenda xxx

Lacelady said...

I think it's a really girly, pretty card Sue. I am a fan of heartfelt dies, but can't really afford them, which has always been a shame.

Which every direction you go, you are so artistic, and will be able to make cards with whatever you are given to work with. I love your own designs too, so perhaps you are planning more?

Morning Sue
This is a lovely card. The colours are unusual but work very well together.
Shame about Heartfelt products but I'm enjoying your new dies and look forward to see your creations using them.
Have a lovely weekend

Hi Sue stunning card,love the colours,I am sure it could be changed around to use other Dies?
Good luck in your new path an I know we still will have stunning cards on your blog every day.

Suebak said...

.............. just noticed - no more Heartfelt from you Sue. I do love Heartfelt, however, you are now mounting singles. I love some of the A5 stamp sheets you bring but do not purchase simply because they are unmounted. I choose to not faff around with unmounted sheets when there are so many on the market that are already mounted in addition to polymer stamps. You pay more for Heartfelt but they are ready to go.

Hi Sue,
Hi Everyone,
Lovely card once again! You really do create something stunning each day! The colours may not always be to everyone's taste but we learn vast amounts. I'm sure
that whatever the future may hold for us you will continue to inspire us and lead onward and upward!
I confess to being a little excited about what may be around the corner as you wouldn't take decisions like this one lightly! I'm sure the best is yet to come!
See what faith we have in you!
Have a lovely weekend everyone! We're even promised good weather next week!
Love Myra

CraftyJo said...

This card immediately made me think of an elderly relatives front parlour! You remember the type? Cleaned once a week and used only for 'best' - all frilly and with dark wallpapers above a dado rail and wood panelling below :)

Planetsusie said...

Hi Sue - this is such a beautiful card and I love those shades. Sorry about Heartfelt but onwards and upwards as always. Looking forward to more of your creations.

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

Hi Sue, I like that you have used the Lace Doily border ( one of my favourites ) on this beautiful card.

Lesley Griffiths said...

What an elegant card. I really like the bella rose dies and stamps.
It's a pity you are parting ways with Heartfelt Creations but, hey, situations change, as do we all and when it's time to take on new challenges it's time to move on. You can't stock everyone's products.

Gillian xXx said...

Beautiful card as usual.Love all Creative Expressions products so looking forward to the future.

Hello Sue

Pearl said...

Hi Sue, lovely card today.

Surprised and saddened by the news about Heartfelt Creations as I think that you have used the products to great advantage and the cards you have made using them have been such a delight.

Can't stop progess, but no doubt you will give us delightful cards no matter what products you use.

You do have your own range now so will have something to continue with anyway.

Craftihappiness to you all, love from Pearl

Tracy Stitt said...

Hi sue and gang.
Such a shame about HC however as long as you keep goin with wonderful creations to keep us goin then that's fab! Loving your card.
I bought this set and fell in love with it as its so versatile to use. Although u guys seem to make the flowers easy to do. It tools me hours to make mine ready for Mother's Day cards! Lol
Love Tracy from killie xx

Crisco said...

Gorgeous card - amazing how there is a reflection of red on the flowers - I had to look twice before I realised what was going on!

nannapat said...

Love today's card Sue. I think HC designs are lovely but we can always visit their blog for inspiration. I know that everything you bring us in the future will be absolutely stunning, whatever products you are using. Pat x

Jill Liddle said...

Lindsay Martin said...

What a lovely card today, I will miss your heartfelt creations inspiration, but with all your new dies we shall not have a big hole left! Finally the weather looks like it is turning, I will be putting some of the ponies out 24/7 in the next day or so, I need the stables for the foals, will send you a picture of some when they arrive, still finding hard without my riding pony but I'm having to look to the future xxx

Theresa Pace said...

i think it is a pity that you will no longer do heartfelt creastions. this is so lovely and an interesting idea of using the flower stamp. shame but never mind. i wonder what will be next? well you should do your own line really xx

sharon said...

Good afternoon Sue
I love how you've focussed on using silver card - in my craft room I have an excess of silver as I always use the gold card up first. The backround detail is wonderfully subtle but still noticeable. But most of all, I've fallen for your beautiful flowers - they're stunning!
Hugs

heather harrison said...

Hi Sue. What a beautiful card. Sorry to hear about heartfelt as I have just started using them. Well sometimes you have to move on. Will still love to see what you do next. All the very best. Xx

Jackie Durrant said...

Hi Sue, what a lovely card. It's nice to see you bringing out an older set as the lace border is one I use quite often. We all resist change and having just bought my first Heartfelt Creations it seems a shame you are discontinuing the association but it really means we will have an extra "dimension" with whatever path Creative Expressions follows so I will look forward to all the new ideas. Have a relaxing weekend, they say the weather is going to be nice, love from Jackie D

Jacquie said...

Hi Sue,

Beautiful card, love the colours and dies.

Sorry to hear you are no longer with Heartfelt Creations, I thought they were part of the same company (Creative Expressions), one US the other UK but hey that's me!!! Still, looking forward to seeing what you come up with in the future and hopefully we will still see Heartfelt Creations on the TV.

Love & Hugs

Hi Sue, a beautiful card. Sorry to hear that CE has parted company with Heartfelt Creations as I really like their stamps. Looking forward to seeing whats next!

Barbara said...

Beautiful card Sue, the flowers are lovely.
You have probably increased Heartfelt Creations sales by 100% in this country with your demoing of them. You now have your own stamp and die range so why sell someone elses range. Creative Expressions are a fantastic brand with gorgeous products and need to sell their own brand.
The only complaint I have with CE is that we cannot buy direct as you used to do years ago but then we have Julia and Sams websites.
I cant wait to see what the next year brings and what surprises you have in store for us all!!!!

Julie Bee said...

Hi Sue

Love today's offering, shame about the split, but we move on.

Hi Sue, this is a very classy card today. If you have decided to cease with Heartfelt Creations I am sure it is the right thing to do, and I bet they are new goodies in the pipeline. Have a great weekend, Edwina

Heather said...

Lovely card and it's a shame you are not going to be featuring any Heartfelt Creations anymore as I love them but you can't do everything. You have featured some fabulous new stamps and dies recently so I'm sure you will continue to give us some great inspriation and tempt us to spend our money on other things!!

Chris Curry said...

I have these stamps and dies and love them. You have done some great demos with them Sue, thank you. looking forward to your new stuff. Xx

Hi sue

I will be sad to see heartfeltcreations go but what ever you decide I'm sure will benifit us and I'm sure no matter what products u use your cards will be full of inspiration.good luck sue x

Alice G said...

Can I just say that I'm sure you will be a huge loss to heartfelt creations as you have been a fabulous ambassador for their products and have done an amazing job of showing them off through your wonderful creations. I may be biased but in my opinion, nobody does it like Sue! I do hope this means we get to see more of your own gorgeous designs though!

Truth is we follow your blog because of your creativity and your ability to show any product off in all it's glory and today's card is just another example of that. Thank you Sue for all you do.

Hugs Alice xx

Jane said...

Beautiful card shame about the stamps but i'm sure you have lots of new things to inspire us with, looking forwards to more inspiration.

Jan Sharp said...

A lovely card, again! As a relative newcomer to the scene, I've always been a bit confused about what was Heartfelt Creations and what was Creative Expressions!! I'm intrigued now, to see how Creative Expressions develops. If your new dies and stamps are anything to go on, I'm going to love what happens!!!
Have a good weekend all and thank you for your good wishes and friendship.
Thanks, Jan x

TimeOut2Create said...

Happy Friday Sue and all,
Stunning card sue, so elegant, love the embellishment a lot. Sad to hear that you're parting way with Heartfelt creations but I can understand you need to now grow your own label. I hope it continue to grow from strength to strength!

If I don't come back tomorrow, I pay tribute to you all strong Women of the world! Happy International women's day, may we continue to rule the world!! :-)

Beautiful and stylish card. Silver and white is a lovely combination and the flowers add a feminine touch. Shame about Heartfelt Creations, but you did them proud!

Maureen Bleay said...

What is left to be said
Sue. Yes you have done a fabulous job for Heartfelt creations and with them but it's time to develop and see what the future brings eh? Looks as if creative expressions is going to be a winner judging by what we have already seen. Good luck and I know you will succeed because well, that is you. All your creations are absolutely fab. and we llok forward to future successes. Great bring it on, the future of creativity in craft work is safe in your hands. Thanks for all that you do Hugs Maureen

Anne O said...

Hi Sue
You introduced me to HC and I now follow their blog and samples. And the card today uses their dies to great effect - beautiful card. Your new die sets amply demonstrate that your direction lies in your own dies, stamps and embossing folders. So while I will miss your take on HC, I've been enjoying your recent products equally, if not more!
Best wishes

magpie said...

Helloooo Sue and all the Wilsonettes! What can I say but another beautiful card Sue. I don't know about anyone else but the flowers have a lovely tint of red, lime green and pale blue on my laptop. I've no doubt it could be the camera flash but it looks really nice! I, like Jaqui, thought Creative Expressions was the same as Heartfelt Expressions but then this is my brain....! Just go with your heart Sue and I have no doubt our wonderful Wilsonettes will be right behind you in whatever you do. We should call ourselves the Old Wilsonette Faithfuls.....there again less of the old, we still have young hearts! Good luck Nikki too! Cameeli, Norah is right. It's a good workout that there gardening. I lost half a stone in two weeks! You will ache a bit though but then no pain, no gain they say! Hello to Christine, good to see you again! 'P' in Wales, so Toppi has taken over from Molly by sitting on the newspaper? I'm sure that Molly is close by watching..... Toppi must have been given permission to do so first I'm sure.....She will always be around you, as Berkeley will with you Tina. So so glad that you are helping each other through both your griefs. Sending love and hugs to both of you and also to Lyndsey too. Take care Sue and everyone xx Love Karen xx

Wendys Little Nest Crafts said...

Hi Sue, another lovely card..... Sorry to hear that you will no longer demoing for Heart Felt Creations but will look forward to your new inspirations as change although sometimes hard, it is always for the good. Good luck to all concerned with the move and hope it goes smoothly.

Hello Sue. Well, it will be sad to say farewell to Heartfelt Creations but I shall look forward to seeing them with Nikki. What will Creative Expression be bringing us next? Their blossoms are lovely and I shall continue to enjoy using them. Will just have to come up with my own ideas - heaven forbid. xx Maggie (better without a bow)
