A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.

Hi Everyone

Back to my old bad habits of posting late!!!  Sorry :-(

It has been a day of wedding work today but come this evening I just had to have a little play.

Ever since I did the double printing with my Pink Petticoat papers I have wanted to go one stage further and instead of double printing .. ..have a go at triple printing.  

So here we are:

This used:

Backing Papers:  Pink Petticoat using
For backing paper:
Twas the Night Script (printed in Lilac Bloom)
Large Nordic Snowflakes (printed in Winter Pansy)
Dotty Random Snowflakes (printed in Raspberry Coulis)
For sentiment backing:
Pinstripe (printed in Raspberry Coulis)
Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat "Traditional Christmas Sentiments"
Cuttlebug Snowflake Die
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Clear Embossing Powder
Metallic Cord, Button and Gem

Tee hee!!  Well that's three patterns printed on the same piece of card.  Wonder if I will ever manage any more than that.

Well that is me for today .. .. very, very late.

Catch you again tomorrow (hopefully earlier).

This is gorgeous Jules. I love the layered pattern that you have created and the colour scheme is so pretty. The snowflake with the button and metallic cord looks wonderful

hugs Sue

Really like the repeat printing of the papers and the script one makes a perfect base for the other prints. A gorgeous card being the result.
I FINALLY got round to ordering my Hot Fix wand and some nail heads this morning - really wanted them in time for some Crimbo cards.

Hi Jules, lovely card and such a simple idea. I adore the Pink Petticoat papers. Don't know how many of the CDs I have as well as the downloaded ones. Taking a break from studying to browse blogland for a while... got an exam on Friday afternoon.
Take care, hugs, Pauline xx

This is fab Jules, just think of how many colour/pattern combinations you could have. I don't think it will be long before we see at lease four together!
