Inspiration Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations....

Good morning everyone and welcome!  We are getting closer to having frost on the pumpkin here in East Tennessee and I'm really looking forward to it.  We are at the middle of October and the weather is forecasting "cold" by the end of the month.  After the heat of this summer, this old girl is longing for "cold". 

I'm here this morning to share another card I have made using the Buttons and Blooms collection from Heartfelt Creations.  This is such a versatile collection and works up into pure heaven when you make a card or tag.  I hope you have purchased your set and are well on your way to creating some gorgeous projects!

Also glue one of the buttons to the pocket on the card front.
Using blue ink stamp the pattern pieces onto pieces of the paper collection. Cut out using the coordinating dies. Using dimensional tape adhere the piece that looks like ric rac to the top of the card. Also use dimensional tape to adhere the three other pattern pieces to the card front. Using the coordinating die cut out a ticket from the paper collection and adhere to the top using dimensional tape.
Decide on placement of flowers and leaves along the bottom of the card and using hot glue, glue them down. The card is now ready!

Glue this white cardstock behind the frame. Stamp the sentiment onto a white piece of cardstock using Danube Blue ink and mat this onto a piece of blue cardstock. Use dimensional tape to adhere to the frame piece and then add dimensional tape to the frame piece and adhere it to the card front.
Using Olive Green ink stamp the leaves and color using Bamboo Leaves ink. Cut out with coordinating die and the place inside the mold and run that through the die cutting machine. Lay the leaves aside to dry. Stamp flower petals using Danube Blue, Majestic Violet and Vibrant Fuchisa inks and use coordinating dies to cut out. Shape the flower petals using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit and set aside to dry. Add Prills to the centers of the flowers and set aside to dry. Once all the elements are dry, decide on placement and glue them down.

Vellum Flowers and Butterfly....

Good morning everyone and surprise!  I most never post here except for Wednesdays, but I have a card I want to share with you this morning.  I made this using products from Heartfelt Creations as I followed along with one of Emma Lou's online classes:  How to Create Vellum Flowers and Mini Album Class.  Pay close attention to the Butterfly as there are many layers and lots of movement.


I used the Fluttering Butterfly stamps and dies and the Sweet Peony Stamps and Dies for the flowers; all from Heartfelt Creations of course!  I'm thinking the next time I use vellum I might try some glitter.  Just feels like this needs glitter, but then again I do love me some glitter!

Have a happy Monday and be creative in whatever you do today!

Stamp the flower cluster and berries twice. Using Majestic Violet Archival Ink and the Dove Blender Pen to color the berries. Use a dauber and Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink to color the leaves.

Instructions: My card size is 5 x 7". Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection. Using the largest Album Tag, cut out a piece of white cardstock. Now using the smaller die, cut a piece of purple and glue them together. Cut out the Ornamental Tags Die pieces to make the sign and then cut out the wording and glue it down. I cut the base using white then a piece of purple cardstock was used for the layering piece then the words were cut out of white. I used dimensional tape to adhere this to the Large Album Tag.
Next cut out a scallop lace piece using another of the dies from the Album Tags and Accents Die. I used white cardstock for this piece. Glue it to the bottom of the large Album Tag and then use dimensional tape to adhere the Large Album Tag to the card front.
Stamp the blossoms onto white cardstock using Majestic Violet ink and then color the centers with some of the Grape Jelly Memento Ink. Use Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink to color the leaves. Using the coordinating die cut out the blossoms and leaves. Lay the blossoms and leaves onto the 3D Mold and spritz with water and run through the Sizzix Vagabond 2. Lay out the pieces to dry. Once dry add glitter and Prills and leave to dry. Layer the blossoms and make the flowers. Decide where you want the flowers and leaves and glue them down.
Using Majestic Violet ink, stamp the butterfly onto white cardstock. Use Grape Jelly and Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink to color. Add glitter and Prills and allow to dry. Glue the butterfly down onto the card front.

Instructions: My Album is 5 x 7. I was totally inspired by Kathy Clement's video for her Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley Tri-Fold Folio and followed along to make the album. See the video here.  Once I had the basic album made out of white cardstock I used Scor-Tape to adhere white ribbon on the front and back page of the album to make a closure. I covered the pages with pieces of the paper collection. I also covered the 1/2" space between the pages with the paper collection.
Stamp the flowers with Rouge and Majestic Violet ink onto white cardstock and color the centers with Rose Bud for the pink and Grape Jelly ink for the purple flowers. Stamp the leaves with StazOn Olive Green ink and color with the Bamboo Leaves Memento ink. Use coordinating dies to cut out the flowers and leaves and place them into the mold and run through the Vagabond. Lay them out to dry. Once dry add prills to the centers of the flowers and allow to dry. Add glitter to the flower petals and allow to dry.
Stamp the cottage with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink onto white cardstock. Cut out using the coordinating die and color with Memento Inks, the daubers and the Dove Blender Pen. Add glitter to the piece and set aside to dry. I cut out extra sets, so I could use dimensional tape to adhere to the cottage to give it more dimension. Adhere this piece to the album front and add flowers and leaves and glue down.
The first page on the inside of the album is a waterfall for adding photos and I used pieces from the Flip Fold Inserts packet. I used Scor-Tape to glue the flaps down then cut out card fronts from the paper collection to fit on these flaps. Next, I cut out two pieces of the long die out of the Ticket and Tags Die and covered them with pieces of the paper collection. This was the time when I glued down the magnets to make a closure for the waterfall. I glued a flower to the top flap just to give a bit of decoration to this piece.
The center piece of the inside of the album has a pocket on it. I just used Scor-Tape to glue 3 sides of a piece of white cardstock to the bottom of the page. Next cut out a piece of coordinating paper and adhere to the white cardstock pocket. Cut out 4 of the corner pieces from the Album Tags and Accents Die using white cardstock. Glue these pieces to the corners of the pocket. Add a flower and leaves to the pocket as well. Next using the tags die, I made tags to fit in the pocket. I used white ribbon to tie in the hole of the tags for interest.
For the back page of the album I just wanted a medallion saying Happy Birthday. Out of white cardstock I cut out one of the Accent pieces and then I cut another out of the paper collection. Using Grape Jelly Memento Ink, I stamped the sentiment from the Special Birthday Sentiments Cling Stamps. Glue the two pieces together to make a medallion and use dimensional tape to adhere to the back page.
