Inspiration...

You know how sometimes you see something and you are totally inspired?  Well Emma Lou did a Heartfelt Creations Facebook live on September 15 using some discontinued products and I have to admit I am totally inspired!  





 I watched her video and immediately whipped out two cards to add to my Christmas stash!  Thank you Emma Lou and Heartfelt Creations!  These came together so quickly and I think they are beautiful!  
I used HCD1-7144 Decorative Medallion Die, HCD1-7199 Noel Ornament Die,  and HCPC 3834 Noel Sentiments Cling Stamps.  These are on the Limited Edition List so if they are still available hurry and get yours now!

I have totally enjoyed seeing all the inspirational videos from Heartfelt Creations during this Covid isolation.  I have learned so much and hope these keep coming even after we are able to resume our lives!

For more ideas on creating with the Decorative Royale Square & Circle Dies, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/tqmtn_TiVVw.

Instructions: My finished card size is 6" x 6". I cut a piece of the flower shaping paper 6" x 12" and scored at 6". Fold to make card base. Using Sheet 8B of the paper collection use the scalloped edge die to cut a piece to add color to the card front. Glue down.

Next, using white cardstock, I cut out the decorative pieces of the dies leaving the center square in place to hold the sentiment. Glue this piece to the green layer and set aside. I glued the pearls next and left to dry. Stamp the sentiment using Vibrant Fuchsia ink and cut out using the square center.

Stamp the leaves with Fern Green Archival Ink and color using Leaf Green. Cut out using the coordinating die. Lay on the mold, spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Turn out to dry. While the leaves are drying, stamp the flower petals using Rich Cocoa ink then color using various inks. Here is where you can select what color you like. Cut out the petals using coordinating dies. Lay onto the mold, spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. As you turn the petals out use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to add a bit more dimension to them. Allow to dry. Layer up several petals and glue together. The more dimension the better. Next add prills to the center and allow to dry. This is the time to apply glitter with glue and the sponge. Once everything is dry, decide on placement and hot glue in place. The card is finished.

Debuting the Summer's Garden Collection with Heartfelt Creations...

Good morning my friends; I hope you are well.  This morning we are here to share a brand new collection from Heartfelt Creations...The Summer's Garden Collection is here!  This collection brings back many childhood memories of my Mom.  She grew these along our back porch and I loved to see them blooming with their beautiful colors!  




Other Products: White Cardstock, Die Cut Machine, Hot Glue Gun, Memento Dandelion Ink Pad


For more tips on creating with the Summer's Garden Collection watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/kYiP8qJZ4rE.

For more ideas on creating with the 5 x 7 Decorative Frame Dies, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/qdBFA5VpmSo.

Instructions: My finished card size is 5" x 7". I used the Flower Shaping Paper and made a 5" x 7" card base. Using the Royal Elegance Frame die, tape it down so that it hangs over the fold in the paper. Run through the die cut machine. Using the same die, cut a a shaped die using Sheet 10B in the paper collection; glue to the card base. Next, cut the next smaller size of the Royal Elegance die using white cardstock and glue it down. I used Sheet 5A of the paper collection and cut the next size of the die. I distressed it with Morocco ink and glued it down.

I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock and then used the oval piece of the die to cut it out. I used Morocco ink to color the edges of the white oval then I used foam dots to add some dimension.

Using Memento Rich Cocoa Ink, stamp the flower petals and color using different colors of Memento Ink. Cut out the petals using coordinating dies, spritz with water and then shape using the molds. When the petals come out of the mold use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to add a bit more dimension to the petals and set aside to dry. Once dry glue several layers of the petals together to make the flower. The more layers, the more dimension. Add the Prills to the centers and allow to dry. Once dry, add glitter and set aside to dry.

Stamp the leaves using Archival Fern Green and then using the stack and store daubers, color with Leaf Green Archival Ink. Using the coordinating die, cut out the leaves, spritz with water and run through the die cut in the mold. Allow to dry and then add glitter and lay out to dry again.

Decide where you want the elements to be and glue down onto the card front. Don't forget the little ladybug; I used Memento Lady Bug Ink and colored then run through the mold to shape. When dry, just glue to one of the leaves and your card is finished.

Inspiration Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations....Elegant Envelope Box Card...

Good morning my friends.  I'm here this morning to share another Heartfelt Creations project with you! 


The following photo is the card opened up,  There is a place for you to write a short message to the recipient. I love using the paper collection for this as it will do all the heavy lifting for you.


The next photo is just a close-up of the roses from Heartfelt Creations.  I really loved how they turned out don't you.  




Other Products: Die Cut Machine, White Cardstock, Hot Glue Gun, Crinkled and Glittered Tissue Paper

For more tips on creating with the Classic Rose collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/Z8P070kC3oo.

For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/FSdPL7nXvQE.

Instructions: My finished project size is 5 3/4" x 8 1/2". There are numerous YouTube videos for making one of these envelope box cards so I chose one and followed along with the measurements for making this project. The video I chose was this one. She gave more details about measurements and instruction. Once you have finished making the box it is time to decorate. I used some of the beautiful Sweet Peony Paper Collection to decorate.

Stamp the rose petals using Ranger Archival Ink in Magenta Hue, then I colored the centers using Ranger Archival Ink in Sap Green and Memento New Sprout ink. Then I lightly did the edges of the petals and then I used the coordinating die to cut out. Next stamp the leaves in Fern Green and use Magenta Hue and Leaf green to finish coloring the leaves. Die cut the leaves. Add the leaves and Rose petals to the mold, spritz with a little water and run through the die cut machine to shape. I used the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to add a bit more shaping to the rose petals and then set them aside to dry. Once the leaves and roses are dry, layer the rose petals and glue with hot glue to form the flowers. Add glitter to the leaves and the roses and allow to dry.

While everything is drying, cut pieces of the tissue paper so that there are several points then color with Ranger Archival Ink in Magenta Hue. I placed these points into the envelope box part of the card and used some hot glue to help hold them in place.

Find a sentiment on the paper and cut out and glue to the inside of the card. I also cut one of the small tag pieces so there is some room for a personal message. I really love how this turned out and hope you love it too!

Inspiration Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations...

 Good Wednesday Morning everyone and welcome to Inspiration Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations.  This morning I have two projects to share with you so bear with me, this will be a long post.

Ranger Archival Ink Pad - Vivid ChartreuseRACP531
Ranger Archival Ink Pad - Red GeraniumRACP993
Power Outage PrillsANC845
Ribbit PrillsANC825

Other Products: White Cardstock, White Seam Binding, Hot Glue Gun

For more tips on creating with the tags & sentiments, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/eAfLuNkRda4.

Instructions: Using the Album Tag Die, die cut two tags from white cardstock. Die cut the Swirly Accent Spray Die out of white cardstock. Glue the Swirly Accent Die cut between the two tag die cuts. This makes the base tag good and sturdy. Pick a piece of the paper collection and die cut it to fit the front of the tag. Using a sponge and Designer Dries Clear Adhesive add glitter to the Swirly Accent die cut. Set aside to dry.

Stamp the flowers onto the Deluxe Flower Shaping paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Using the coordinating die, cut out the petals. Use Red Geranium ink and the daubers to color. Spritz the petals with water and use the Flower Shaping Kit to shape. I also hand pleated the ends of the petals and set them aside to dry. When dry, glue two petals the same size together, staggering so the flower looks full. Let this dry. Now is the time to spread out the petals. I added a ring of Power Outage Prills and allowed this to dry. I went back in and added the Ribbit Prills to the very center of the flowers. This gives the flowers a bit more interest. Allow this to dry. I used a sponge with glue on the tip and dabbed this onto the flower petals then sprinkle the Crystal Clear over the flowers. Allow this to dry.

Stamp the leaves with Archival Fern Green ink and color using Memento Bamboo Leaves. I went back with the Fern Green to add a bit more color to the edges.

I picked a ticket from the paper collection and die cut it. I added Double Dots to the back of it and glued it to the front of the tag.

Wet a length of the seam binding and color with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink. Scrunch it and allow to dry. Tie a bow and use hot glue to adhere to the front of the tag.

Decide where you want the flowers and leaves and using hot glue, adhere to the tag front. Your tag is finished and becomes a gift on its own.

Cut another piece of cardstock to glue over the partial die cut and then cover with a piece of the paper collection. Using another piece of white cardstock cut out the decorative cage and glue over the card front.

Stamp the elements with Majestic Violet ink and color with various ink colors and the Stack and Store Daubers. This is a quick and easy way to color. Using coordinating dies, cut out all the elements. Spritz with water and shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit; set aside to dry. Glue two flower petals together to make flower and add Prills to the center. Allow to dry.

Decide on placement of the elements and hot glue them onto the shaped card front. Add glitter and the card is ready to go.
