Good morning friends and welcome to my world. This post is going to be another long one as I have two cards to post. So bear with me and enjoy. You can get lots of inspiration by going to the Heartfelt Creations Blog.
My first card is Starry Night Festive Poinsettia and you can see it here in the Heartfelt Creations Gallery.
My finished card size is 6 X 6. Make card base using Deluxe Flower Shaping paper; it is just the right weight for this use. Cover the card base using Sheet 8B of the Home for the Holidays Paper Collection.
Using white cardstock cut two of the Starry Night decorative die. Glue together and then glue to the card front. Set this aside while we work on the flowers.
Using Deluxe Flower Shaping paper and Archival Fern Green ink, stamp the Holly Berry Spray, Poinsettia and Holly leaves. Color the leaves with Archival Leaf Green and cut out with coordinating dies. Color the flower petals with Archival Leaf Green and Memento Lady Bug ink. The stamen is colored with leaf green. Die cut everything with coordinating dies. Lay onto coordinating mold, spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Turn out onto the desk to dry. Once dry, I used the sponges to add Dries Clear Adhesive to the petals and sprinkled with Crystal Clear Glitter. Allow to dry then glue petals and stamen together. Decide on placement of flowers and leaves and use hot glue to adhere to card front.
Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock using Fern Green ink. Edge the piece with Fern Green ink also. Measure and cut a piece of Sheet 8B of the paper collection to fit behind the white piece of cardstock and edge this with Fern Green Ink as well. Glue to the card front and the card is finished.
My second card is a slimline card called Rosy Birthday Wishes and can be found here in the Heartfelt Creations Gallery.

Good morning everyone! Well here is something you don't often see...me posting on Saturday. We have been trying to play catch up with this wonderful new collection The Festive Poinsettia from Heartfelt Creations. This morning the blog is bursting at the seams with so many beautiful projects. You can use the link above to have a look around. I have two projects to share so my post is rather lengthy but I love both of these projects so I want you to see them both.
You can see my first project in the Heartfelt Creations Gallery.
My Folio finished size is 5 1/2” X 7 1/2" with a 1/2” spine. Make Folio base by cutting two pieces of white cardstock 8” X 5 1/2" and scoring on the 8” side at 1/2". Glue the two 1/2" scored cardstock together and allow to dry. I covered the front and the spine with a piece of the paper cofllection. I used sheet 6A. Die cut the Regal Lattice Gateway Die once with white cardstock and once with the Luxe Gold cardstock. Offset the two die cuts so the gold is showing a bit underneath the white and glue together. Adhere to the card front.
I stamped the flower petals with Sap Green ink and colored with Ladybug and Leaf Green ink. Die cut with coordinating dies and lay onto the coordinating molds and spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Turn out onto the desk top and allow to dry. When dry I used the hot glue gun to glue two petals together and then the stamen in the center. Put a bit of hot glue in the center of the flowers and then dump Heart of Gold Prills into the glue. Using a sponge and Dries clear adhesive, add Crystal Clear Glitter to the flower petals then allow to dry.
Stamp the Holly leaves and Holly Berry Spray using Leaf Green ink and then color with Leaf Green ink. Cut out with coordinating dies and then add some olive ink to the edges of the greenery. Run the pieces that have coordinating molds, through the die cut machine and turn out onto the desk to dry. For the Holly Berry Spray pieces I just shaped a little with my fingers. Now that all the elements are ready to go, decide on placement and hot glue down.
For the inside top of the folio, I covered the page with a piece of the paper collection; I used Sheet 3B. Take one of the Gateway Fold cards and cut the back fold off so that you just have the front and back of the fold. I’m using magnets as a closure so decide on placement for the Scalloped Flourish Gateway die and glue down. Cut a piece of Sheet 1B of the paper collection and glued that to the inside of the foldout. Using white cardstock and Luxe Gold Cardstock die cut the Elegant Swirl Gateway die and glue the gold piece down. Now cut a piece of Sheet 11A for behind the white part of the die cut. Glue everything onto the piece of gold and allow to dry. I used a piece of Sheet 5B to cover the back part of the foldout. Make a pocket using a piece of white cardstock and Sheet 10A and using score-Tape adhere to the back portion of the foldout. I cut out some of the stamped tickets from the paper collection and I had an extra piece of gold die cut from the Regal Lattice die and I backed it in white cardstock and made a tag out of it. I added pieces of seam binding to the pull tabs for the tags and inserted them into the pocket. Glue the fold out onto the top inside page and allow to dry.
Cover the inside bottom portion of the folio using Sheet 2B of the paper collection and allow the glue to dry. Make a pocket using a piece of white cardstock covered with a piece left over paper and use Scor-Tape to adhere to the fold. Add a poinsettia and some greenery left over from what I made for the front cover and glue it down using hot glue. Cut out a tag from some left over paper use some of the seam binding to tie as a pull tab. I took a tea bag of herbal tea and covered the front section with a leftover piece of the paper collection so that it matches everything else. I tied a piece of the seam binding into a bow and adhered it with Scor-Tape and Dries Clear Adhesive. I cut a piece of the left over paper and made a flag for the top of the honey stick and insert it into the pocket.
The seam binding was a left over piece that I had dyed red with some ink. I’m sorry but I don’t remember which ink but it matched perfectly. It saved a lot of time since I didn’t have to start dying ribbon.
My second project is: Christmas Medallion and you can see it here in the Heartfelt Creations Gallery.
My finished card size is 6 1/2" X 6 1/2”. Cut a piece of 6 1/2" X 6 3/4" of the Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper and score at 1/4” on the 6 3/4” side to make a flap. Cut a piece of 6 1/2” square cardstock and then glue one side to the 1/4" flap. Now you have a 6 1/2" x 6 1/2” card base. Cover this card with a piece of the paper collection. I used Sheet 2B. Set this aside while we do some die cutting.
Using white cardstock die cut the Swirley Accents dies. Cut two of the larger dies and 4 of the smaller corner pieces of these dies. Glue them down onto the card front. Next cut the scalloped piece of the Eyelet Oval & Basics Die out of white cardstock, then using a piece of the red Sheet 2B cut the plain oval to fit inside the scalloped piece. Use dimensional tape to adhere the scalloped oval to the card front and then use the dimensional tape to adhere the red oval. This gives this center piece a medallion look.
Stamp the Large Poinsettia petals using Sap Green ink. Color with Lady Bug and Leaf Green ink and then cut out using the coordinating dies. Lay onto the mold, spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Lay out onto the desk to dry. Stamp the Holly Berry Spray and the Holy piece from the Small Festive Poinsettia Poinsettia stamp set using Leaf Green ink. Color with leaf green ink, cut out with coordinating dies. Put the holly piece onto the mold, spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Edge all the pieces with Olive ink. I finger shaped the pieces from the Holly Berry Spray. All these pieces were stamped and cut out of the Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper.
Glue two petals of the Poinsettia together using hot glue gun. Also glue down the stamen. Using a sponge and Designer Dries Clear Adhesive add Crystal Clear glitter to the flower. Set it aside to dry. Once dry, decide on placement of the flower and all the greenery and use the hot glue gun to glue it all down. The card is finished.
