Heartfelt Creations - Cascading Fuchsia Card

Hello Friends,
Heartfelt Creations invites you to join us for a stroll through a quaint cottage garden where your cares will melt away and your creative energy will be refreshed and renewed.  The Cascading Fuchsia Collection of stamps, dies and papers is bursting with lush greenery and exquisite beauty.  Here, you'll find pendant shaped clusters of show-stopping pink, purple and magenta blossoms that are also called "Angel's Earrings."  Graceful vines, lacy patterns, flitting butterflies, shady bowers and delicate latticework come together and form this restful haven.  It's a celebration of the simple things that fill this moment in time with wonder and spontaneous joy.  Cascading Fuchsia: It's a flawless garden of peerless delight and a creative sanctuary for the artist in you.

I had so much fun making this card. The Fuchsia flowers are so easy to make. You can watch a video on how to create the Cascading Fuchsia flowers HERE.

  12. Another beautiful creation with flowers!
    Always a delight to view your blog Marisa,

  13. Queste campanelle sono bellissime mia cara Marisa...un vero capolavoro...un abbraccio Ada

  14. What a beautifully designed card! I love the way the fuchsias are suspended from the aperture, and the inside of the card is as lovely as the outside. Outstanding, my friend!

  15. This card is amazingly beautiful, Marisa. I'd be afraid to post it, though. It would be a shame for all of your hard work to get squished. The fuchsias look so difficult to create.

  16. Marisa, this card is just beyond amazing! I love how the flowers just hang in the beautiful opening in the card! Fantastic design!

  17. Wow this is stunning !!! Love how you made this! Hugs

  18. What a stunning card Marisa! I just love your flowers and how they hang in the opening! Blessings! Kathy

  19. wow! This is absolutely stunning!

  20. This is stunning and the fuchsias are so realistic - I didn't realise the aperture was on both sides of the card until I zoomed in - how different - love it xx GailT xx

  21. Marisa, I almost fell off my chair when I saw your incredible card. Beyond beautiful. A true work of art. Thank you for you directions, but I was wondering, for the oval opening are you cutting the oval once? Thru several layers of card stock? I'm sorry if I'm missing something, but I wanted to be sure. Thanks for sharing your artistry!

  22. Hi Karen! Thanks for your sweet comment! The ovals were die cut one at a time, make sure you mark with a pencil first so the ovals line up.

  23. WOW. I can't find the right words for this cute card. It warms my heart. Such a great card with my favourite flower. Big hug from Germany :-)
