Debuting the Sweet Magnolia Collection from Heartfelt Creations

Good morning my friends.  We have been having some wonderful Spring weather here in East Tennessee and everything is beginning to bloom!  This brand new collection from Heartfelt Creations reminds me of how grateful I am to live where I do.  I have a Magnolia tree in my yard and when it blooms it makes my heart sing.

Other Products: Hot Glue Gun, Dimensional Tape, Die Cut Machine, White Cardstock

Instructions: My finished card size is 6" x 6". I used the Flower Shaping Paper to make the card base. Cover with one of the card fronts from page 2A of the paper collection. Using the circle die cut three pieces of heavy white cardstock and glue together to pop up the center then cover with a piece of page 12B of the paper. Glue this circle to the other three. Using a dauber and Magenta Hue Ink, color the edges of this dimensional circle. Add glitter to this pink center circle and allow to dry. Adhere to the card front.

Stamp the flower petals with New Sprout ink and cut out using the coordinating dies. Stamp the leaves with Fern Green and color using Leaf Green and Magenta Hue then cut out using the coordinating dies. Lay the leaves and flowers onto the 3D mold and spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Turn them out onto your desk to dry. Using the Flower Shaping Kit add a bit more shaping to the flower petals. Layer the petals together and glue using hot glue. I twisted the smallest flower petals and cut off the bottom of them then glued to the flower centers. I added a bit of Toffee Crunch to give a more realistic look. I glittered the flowers and set them aside to dry. Now go over the edges of the leaves with Fern Green ink to give a bit more dimension and set aside to dry. Arrange the flowers and petals around the center circle and glue down using the hot glue gun.

Stamp the sentiment onto one of the tags from the paper collection using Tuxedo Black ink. Adhere to the circle using dimensional tape. The card is now finished.

Inspiration Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations...

Good morning friends!  Wednesday has once again rolled around and it is time for Inspiration Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations.  Today I thought I would switch it up a bit and you won't find one shaped flower anywhere near my card.  I know...I couldn't believe it either!




Other Products: White Cardstock, Black Cardstock, VersaMark Ink, Gold Embossing Powder, Ink Blending Brush

Instructions: My finished card is 4 1/2" x 5 1/2". Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection. I used Sheet 11B; it's a gorgeous shade of orange. Cut a layering piece of black cardstock (5" x 3 7/8") and cut a piece of white cardstock 1/8" smaller and adhere it to the black piece. Stamp one of the Floral Shoppe fillers onto the white cardstock using VersaMark Ink and use Gold embossing powder to make the image a pretty shimmery gold color. Stamp the sentiment below the filler piece and emboss it using the gold embossing powder as well.

I used my ink blending brush and Tiger Lily ink to add color around the embossed image and then glue this piece to the card front. By using the gold embossing powder and the Tiger Lily ink It comes out looking like something really exotic. This is a quick and easy card that packs a punch!

Easter Blessings....

Good morning friends!  I hope your Friday will be a good one.  It was a stormy night here in East Tennessee...a sure sign that Spring is here!  

I'm here to share another of the quick and easy Easter cards I have made using the retired Flowering Dogwood.  On this card I just used one of the 6 X 6 card fronts and embellished it just a bit.  I added the sentiment and then some prills to the flower sentiments.  I love this collection and was so sorry to see it go.  I hope you enjoy this one!


Well that's it for me.  I do have a couple more cards to share before Easter arrives.  Did you make easter cards this year.  I only did a few; mostly for my aging neighbors to brighten their day!

He Lives...

As we continue to march toward Easter, I have another card to share with you!



I made a bunch of these Dogwood flowers and little doves so I got several cards out of these.  The Flowering Dogwood collection has been retired by Heartfelt Creations but I still have these products and will continue to use them as I'm in love with these flowers.  I have several Dogwood trees in my yard so you can understand my love for all things Dogwood!

The background die is HCD2-7328 Lattice Swirl Gateway Die.  Heartfelt Creations knocked it out of the park with these new dies!

Flourishing Slimline Card...

Good morning friends and welcome of Heartfelt Creations Inspiration Wednesday!  As we continue along with the Spring Garden Collection I want to share this slimline card.





Other Products: White Cardstock, Purple Cardstock, Dimensional Tape, Die Cutting Machine, Hot Glue Gun

Instructions: My card size is 3 3/4" x 8 3/4". Make card base and add dark purple layer then a piece of sheet 4A from the paper collection. Die cut the Ornate Flourish Gateway die twice, using the lighter purple cardstock. Edge both pieces with the Majestic Violet ink to add some more dimension then lay them end to end on the card front and glue down. Stamp the sentiment using Majestic Violet.

Stamp the flowers onto the Flower Shaping Paper using Majestic Violet ink and using the Stack and Store Daubers add Majestic Violet to the center of each flower. Cut out using the coordinating die and then add Majestic Violet ink to the edges of the flowers Lay them into the 3D mold and spritz with water then run through the die cut machine. Turn them out onto your desk and using the Flower Shaping Kit use pressure to the center of each flower causing them to be more dimensional. When dry, add prills to the centers and allow flowers to dry. Stamp the Hyacinth onto Flower Shaping Paper using Fern Green ink. Color the leaves with Leaf Green and edge the leaves with Fern Green. Cut out using the coordinating die. I used hot glue to glue down the flowers so they would dry quickly. Add glitter to the flowers and allow to dry. Center the Hyacinth onto the card front and using dimensional tape glue down. The card is finished.

Easter Card.....

Good morning friends!  I'm here this morning to share with you one of the Easter cards I made this year.



 I used items from the Flowering Dogwood collection that is retired all except for the flowers.  I always just loved the look of these flowers and the paper collection was one of my favorites.  I was so sorry to see it retire.  Every now and then I pull it all out of the retirement box and give it a play again.  The background die cut is HCD2-7339 Regal Lattice Gateway Die.  I cut one out of white cardstock and one out of the gold cardstock and staggered the two together so the gold is just peeping out behind the white die cut.  I just love this die and have used it a lot.  

That does it for me this morning.  We are supposed to have another gorgeous day here in East Tennessee as Spring is trying to make an appearance.  I hope your day is filled with joy!
