Debuting the Lacy Diamond Dies with Heartfelt Creations.....

Good morning friends and welcome to a cold and snowy East Tennessee morning!  The temps have dipped to 16 with a wind chill of 7 this morning and we have about an inch of snow on the ground here.  We don't receive a lot of snow in these parts anymore so an inch or two brings on great excitement but the big news here is the cold!  We have had some moderating temps up until now and a lot of my friends have reported that early Spring bulbs were beginning to sprout. I'm sure they will be late in blooming now because of the cold on the tender plants.  So I have some tulips to share with you that the cold won't hurt.  They are displayed against the new Lacy Diamond Dies from Heartfelt Creations and I feel like these dies are the perfect backdrop for a lovely bunch of flowers!  They have gone the extra mile with these dies and I can see these being displayed on my cards for a long time!  Can you tell I just love them?  

Also if you visit the Heartfelt Creations site you will notice there is a Design Team Call going on now until Feb. 27.  If you have an interest in this just follow this link and read all about it! Heartfelt Creations

Good morning everyone!  It's been a cold few days here in East Tennessee but we are beginning to moderate a bit.  We haven't had much snow to speak of and I long for some beautiful white stuff.  I love looking out my craft room window to see it snow and watching the birds at my feeder.  It just makes me a happy girl.  

Now down to the business at hand!  We are talking about tulips in the house!  They definitely scream Spring and Heartfelt Creations Tulip Time Collection  has made it easy to create a lovely card for someone special!

Other Products Used:  White Cardstock, Watercolor Paper, Dimensional Tape, Pretty Florals Embossing Folder, Hot Glue

My card is 5 X 7.  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection.  I inked the edges with vibrant Fuschia Ink.  Set the base aside.

Cut out the Eyelet Lace die using white cardstock.  Glue to the card base.  Next using white cardstock again cut out the large oval die and then run it through the Vagabond with the embossing folder.  I always spritz my cardstock with a little bit of water.  This allows for a deep embossing.  Use Vibrant Fuchisa ink to ink the edges of this oval and then use dimensional tape to adhere to the card front.

Now stamp the sentiment onto a piece of the paper collection and, using the small die in the Eyelet Lace Frames Die Set, cut out the sentiment.  Edge with Vibrant Fuchisa ink and use dimensional tape to adhere to the card front.  Set the card aside and we will begin on the floral spray.

Stamp the flower petals and leaves onto watercolor paper and using the daubers and ink color the images.  Using the coordinating dies cut out these petals and leaves.  Run the flower petals through the Vagabond inside the Tulip 3D Shaping Mold.  I spritzed my petals with water in order to get a good shape on the flowers.  When they come out of the mold, shape a bit with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  I glued the petals a bit so they would hold their shape and allowed them to dry.  Next I poked a hole in the bottom of the flower and fed through the stamens and used a hot glue gun to glue into place.  Glitter the flowers and set aside to dry.  Now arrange the flowers and leaves to make a floral spray and glue down on the front of the card.

Additional products used:  White Cardstock, Green Cardstock, Dimensional Tape, Black Soot Distress Ink, Hot Glue Gun, Watercolor Paper

Instructions:  
My card is 6 X 6.  Make card base and cover with one of the card fronts.  Cut out the large circle scallop edge die using the green cardstock.  Find a coordinating piece of the paper collection and cut out a plain circle to fit just inside the scallop die cut.  Glue the two pieces together and mount with dimensional tape.

Stamp the watering can with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink as well as the fence.  Use coordinating dies to cut out.  I used Black Soot Distress ink to shade in the two pieces.  I cut a slice in the lid of the watering can to slip the flowers down inside.  Set aside. 

Stamp the flowers and leaves and color using Leaf Green and Majestic Violet inks.  Cut out and run the petals through the Tulip Mold.  I always spritz the flowers so they take a better shape.  Glue the  petals together to help them hold their shape.  Punch a hole in the bottom of the petals and thread through the stamens.  Use hot glue to hold the stamens in place.  Glitter the edges of the flowers and set aside to dry.  Add the leaves and flowers to the stamped floral piece and slide down inside the slit in the top of the watering can.  Glue to hold the flowers and leaves inside.  Glue watering can to the circle on the card front and cover with the picket fence.  I attached the fence with dimensional tape.  Next cut out a ticket from the paper collection and using dimensional tape adhere to the front of the fence.

I know this has been a very long post and thank you for sticking with me!  You can also visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog for more inspiration from the design team!

Inspiration Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations...

Good morning friends!  I hope  your New Year Holiday was a safe and happy one and that you are ready to get started into the New Year!  I'm here this morning to share another card using the Floral Fashionista Collection  from Heartfelt Creations and it is my last offering as next week we begin working with the new Tulip Time Collection.  Be sure and come back next Wednesday as we debut that!  

I made a Tri-Shutter card using the beautiful paper from the collection and I made lots of these sweet little flowers to grace the panels.  I hope you like it!

Other Products: White Cardstock, Green Cardstock, Dimensional Tape

My card size is 4 1/4  X 5 1/2.  There are many instructions for this type of card on the Internet.  I just found and followed instructions.  Once the base card is made cover with pieces of the paper collection and set aside.

I found one of the smaller card fronts (2 3/4 X 3 3/4).  Cut this out and mat with a piece of green cardstock.  Stamp the sentiment onto the front and apply dimensional tape to one side of this and apply to the left panel.  Add glitter and allow to dry.

Stamp flowers and leaves and cut out using coordinating dies.  I used the daubers and ink to color and then ran the leaves and flowers through their molds and set out to dry.  Add prills to the centers of the flowers and glitter to the edges and set aside to dry.  Once everything is dry, glue down on the panels and allow to dry.  The card is finished.
