The Human Heart

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design - The Human Heart and Spellbinders Baby Buntings, Spellbinders Elegant Ovals,  Spellbinders Captivating Squares, Spellbinders Adorning Accents -
Good morning y’all!  Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback on my big change!   I just wanted to let you know that I’m always listening, and wanted an original, unique design that puts everything at your fingertips and answers your questions before you ask.  Still some tweaks to go but in the coming days I’ll do a post on how to best use the new features.  In the meantime let’s get back to making some cards.  I have a card to share today that uses a beautiful Quietfire Design sentiment.  I set it up as the focal point on Spellbinders Baby Buntings to put the sentiment front and center.  To soften things up a little bit I mounted Spellbinders Elegant Ovals on top of the bunting. Spellbinders Captivating Squares tops off my square panel for a second function as a border and finally Spellbinders Adorning Accents adds texture to the oval behind the bow.

This is my kind of clean and simple – add a lace and a bow and voila!

So the other day I started replying to all the comments left the other day only to realize that it doesn’t automatically send back an email.  Ugh!  I’ll figure it out – I’m still loving that there is the ability to reply directly underneath a comment.  It’s the little things.  Hoping you have a great weekend planned!

    Love this card. Love your new flowers by your signature. I just picked huge pink peonies that remind me of your flower. If it rains this afternoon and if I get a few hours, I want to try make a few cards and pull out the old lace I found at a second hand store a few months ago. :) I always learn from you and love your ideas. Wish I could carve out more hours in my day. Blessings to you.ReplyCancel

      Maria forgive my interruption but i just had to say what a beautiful way with words you have. I also feel the same about this new site but couldnt have put it anywhere nearly as eloquently as you. You are right it is such a quiet place to come and sit awhile.

    I keep going back to your gorgeous blog and enjoy reviewing your cards in the gallery. Such beauties! I have also tried to find “Becca Bows”, but so far have had no luck. Did you decide not to include this segment? If so, please reconsider, as I found your instructions were so very easy to follow when tying all the various bows you came up with. Again, I congratulate you on your new site. It is by far the lovliest one I follow.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca
    Such a beautiful card. I have been following your site for many years now but very rarely do I comment. I think your new site is very classy and so easy to navigate. The first time I went on to the site, it clearly hadn’t uploaded fully and I was quite disappointed but now it’s fully functional and I think it’s one of the best – if not THE best!!
    Best wishes for your continued success

    Oh Becca! I have been away from the blog for awhile – traveling, adjusting to and training a new dog, working on a volunteer project and a bunch of other busy stuff so I missed the launch of your new site! :-(. Just let me say, if is WONDERFUL! You have outdone yourself with this one! It is so elegant and I am looking forward to more and more as you roll out the new site. BTW, the card is lovely as always and has me wanting a new die or two! Again, congrats on the new website!

    Love and Best Wishes,
