Heartfelt Creation new release: Berry Cafe.

Today there is  a brand new release on the Heartfelt Creations blog.

Warm breezes blow, busy bees buzz from blossom to blossom, and perfectly shaped, ripe berries beckon you as you catch a glimpse of them through the vines winding their way up the rickety old picket fence in the picture perfect garden patch.  Bring back fond memories of strawberry picking while the early morning dew still lingered on the vines with the new release by Heartfelt Creations.  The Berry Cafe Collection will have you reminiscing of filling pails until overflowing while playing the game of "two for me" and "one for the pail", which always led to the task taking a tad longer. Travel back in time to the days of your childhood where you shared your first strawberry milkshake, or float at the local ice cream parlor with that special someone you so adored. Filled with sweet illustrations of vining strawberries, adorable children, elegant blossoms, old fashioned strawberry stands as well as delicately patterned papers featuring eyelet prints, soft checks, ornate borders and delicious clusters of strawberries nestled among flowers, you are certain to find yourself warming in the berry patch and hankering for a cold strawberry treat. Happy hues of pinks, reds, yellows, blues and greens create a cheerful color palette that is sure to make your heart sing the songs of summer.  Five extraordinary cling stamp sets allow you to recreate all of the memories of strawberry picking and enjoying the fruit from the vine.  Color and shape your way to a lush and productive garden plot where blossoms and fruit abound, being careful to avoid the ever busy bees.  After all of the toiling and care, reap your rewards, head on over to the fruit stand where anxious passerby’s will be ready to invest in your delicious crop...and once the day is done, grab a friend and treat yourselves to that special strawberry flavored treat with a generous helping of whipped topping! We present to you the ideal collection to welcome summer!

This is such a pretty and sweet collection with a vintage twist, and features one of my summery favourite colour schemes. It also comes with a sweet little blossom set, that will be so versatile for all kinds of collections.

I have started with a fairly simple card using die cut images from the pre-printed images that come with the paper collection. I am so glad that Heartfelt started doing this. It makes making simple cards so quick and simple, and is a less intimidating option for those people who are either new to colouring or are just not that into it. 

Over on the blog you can see a new video from Emma Lou, with some tips on hand colouring your stamped images. Of course you can also see lots of card samples up close both on the blog and in the video, including this one of mine.
