Heartfelt Creations Special : Art FoamPaper and Stamens.....

Good morning everyone.  There is frost on the pumpkins in many of the areas close by this morning.  Definitely a feel of Fall in the air!  I have to say I love this time of year and welcome not having so much outside work to be done!

This morning I'm sharing a couple of cards made with the Heartfelt Creations Foam Paper Flowers and Stamens!  I love these wonderful products and hope to have more time to play soon!

You can watch this video on using the Foam Paper and Stamens:

Other Supplies:  White Cardstock, Art Color Oil Pastels, Aged Mahogany Distress Ink,
20 Gauge Wire, Dimensional Tape, 6mm White Half Pearls, Hot Glue Gun, Dry Baby Wipe

Instructions:  My card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2.  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection.  I edged the paper with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.  Next cut out the Window and glue it to the card front.  Now the fun begins; Using Black Stazon Ink stamp the flowers and leaves.  I used a dry baby wipe and applied oil pastels to the petals of the flowers and leaves.  Cut everything out and then use a heat gun to curl the flowers and leaves.  Now turn them over and apply pressure to the center with one of the burnishing tools just until the Foam Paper cools and then it will hold it’s shape.  Next I added a bit more color as manipulating the petals causes the ink to fade.  I used a small hole punch to cut a hole in the center of the petals so I could feed through the stamen. Now add the stamen and I used the wire to help feed them through the center of the flowers. Put a bead of hot glue to help hold them in place.  Decide on placement for flowers and the dove and hot glue everything down.  I waited until now to add the glitter to the dove and flowers.  Allow to dry and this is when I glued the half pearls down.  Once everything is dry the card is ready to go.

Other Supplies:  White Cardstock, Hot Glue Gun, Dimensional Tape

Instruction:  My card is 5 X 7.  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection.  Cut all the die cut pieces and edge with Rhubarb Stalk Memento ink; layer all the pieces and glue to the card front.  Stamp with Stazon Ink, color and cut out the flower petals and leaves.  I used a heat gun to heat the Foam Paper to curl the leaves.  Next I layered the petals of the roses and used hot gule to glue down.  I poked a hole in the center of the petals and fed through the stamen and then used hot glue to give a bit more stability to the back of the flowers.  Next glue the Prills to the center of the daisies and set aside to dry.  Add glue to the edges of the roses and sprinkle Crystal Clear all over.  Once everything is dry decide where you want the placement to be and use hot glue to glue down.

Oh, gosh, that art foam paper is something more to get hooked on. It's so pretty on your flowers, and nobody makes flowers like you do! Plus, the dies and papers... oh, love those little curlicues! I was outside all afternoon working in the garden. Sometimes I love that we have a long season, but sometimes I wish it was shorter. Today I cut back the last of the daylilies, and I still have hydrangeas to trim and it just goes on and on. Gee, I'm only four days late getting here. Still trying to catch up after our time away.
