Debuting the Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper........

Good morning friends!  I'm here this morning to share with you the brand new Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper from Heartfelt Creations!  Let me just tell you, it is amazing to work with and makes flower shaping so easy and beautiful!  This is what Heartfelt Creations says about this paper and I find it to be very true:

 Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper, making flower shaping fun and stress free. Coloring and shaping beautiful florals is quick and EZ. Designed to work with the 3D Flower Shaping Molds; the Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper retains beautiful vibrant color application even after heavy water misting and shaping.



I used the Tulip Time Stamp Set and Die to make these flowers.  They remind me of something I might find blooming in the desert.  I don't know why I said that because I've never visited there but these blooms have become a favorite of mine.

Other Products: White and Yellow Cardstock, Hot Glue, Sizzix Vagabond 2
For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/FSdPL7nXvQE.
Instructions: My card size is 5 x 7". Make card base and then cut a piece of the paper collection and distress the edges. I used Magenta Hue ink to color these distressed edges. Glue paper to card front and set aside.
Cut out the Diamond and Lace Die using white cardstock and then using yellow cardstock, cut out the Lacy Diamonds Die. I used a sponge and Dries Clear Adhesive and glittered the two die cuts and then set aside to dry. I cut a piece of the paper collection and glued it to the back of the Diamond and Lace die. Now, layer the Lacy Diamond Die over the other die and glue down. Adhere to card front. Stamp the sentiment onto the card front and set the card aside.
Now we are going to work on the flowers using the new Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Using Plum Archival ink, stamp the flower petals and then cut out using the coordinating die. Color the center of the petals with Leaf Green Archival Ink and the outer edges with Magenta Hue. I also colored the back of the petals with Magenta Hue and then I went around the very edges of the petals with Vibrant Fuchisa. This gives the petals just a bit more dimension. Lay the flower petals into the Tulip Shaping Mold and spritz with water. Run through the Vagabond and then shape the edges a bit and set aside to dry. Once the flowers are dry, glue 3 layers together and add the Prills to the center. Next, I added some glitter to the edges and allowed to dry. I found I adore the new Flower Shaping paper and I'm sure you will as well.
Now Stamp the leaves with Fern Green ink and color with Leaf Green and Magenta Hue so they will match the flowers. Cut out and layer into the Leaf Mold and spritz with water and run through the Vagabond. Lay aside to dry.
When the flowers and leaves are dry, situate them around the sentiment and hot glue them down. Your card is ready to go.

WOYWW 512....

Good morning everyone!  Here I am for the second week in a row!  Now don't faint but I've been lured back to Julia's weekly get together of like minded crafters willing to come together and share a little bit of their worlds.  Julia is the author of this little bit of madness and you can find her here:  Julia  Come join us..all you have to do is snap a picture of your work space ,blog about it and link up over at Stamping Ground.  Then you can have a little look into everyone's world.

Last week I showed you the beginning stages of these Dogwood flowers and the lovely doves.  I had forgotten how much I love these little doves especially once their plumes are glittered.  Here they are all glittered and ready to strut across the front of an Easter card.


I have to tell you, since the die came out for the tag over at Heartfelt Creations it  has been used in so many ways other than just a tag and I love it being used as an opening on the front of a card.  You can fancy it up like I did here or you can just leave it plain, but then again why would you when there is so much you can do to add to it.  Of course the Dogwoods and little dove just make me happy gracing the front of this card. 


Well that does it for me this week.  I'm off to visit  the other ladies participating this week.  I hope to come back again next week with another Easter card made using these flowers.  Tis the season...
Happy WOYWW!

Thinking of You....

Good morning everyone!  I'm here to share another card with you this morning.  I've been playing with vellum flowers.    I used Oakberry Lane Collection flowers and I just love the way they turned out.  I did a soft coloring on the back of the petals and love the look!  I am always looking for a card to send to someone just to say I'm thinking of them and this one will go into my stash for just such an occasion.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.  It has become one of my favorites.


I also used the die from the Daydreams Bridge Die Set from the March Release.  I glittered it up and also glittered the tag used for the sentiment at the top of the card.  The card is 5 X 7 and will be mailed in a clear plastic envelope.

This will do it for me this morning.  I'm off to start my day.  I need to run errands but the weather is calling for rain so I'm not sure how much I'll get done before the showers begin.  Have a great day and be creative!

Happy Easter All Wrapped Up with a Gingham Bow.......

Good morning everyone and welcome back.  I'm just running through with a quick Easter card I made to enter in the Double D Challenge.  The challenge is Gingham and let me just tell you I had to do some rummaging to find some in my stash.  You would think with a couple of closets full of product that I would be able to find enough Gingham to make a small card.  I found some pink gingham ribbon and a tiny bit of paper and we are off to the races.  I let the paper do the heavy lifting on this card but I did stamp the sentiment and I tied the bow.  Quick and easy!


I'm off to link my card to the Double D Challenge site and to begin my day.  Hope you have a wonderful Thursday my friends!

Instructions: My card size is 4 x 6". Using the tag die lay it on a folded piece of cardstock with the edge hanging off. Run this through the Vagabond and cut out the card. Using the coordinating die, cut a piece of the paper collection and layer it onto the front of the card. Next, cut out the medallion and use the coordinating die to cut a piece of the paper collection. Glue it to the medallion. Use dimensional tape to adhere to card front. Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and use the Tag die to cut out. I went around the edges of the cardstock with Magenta Hue ink. Use dimensional tape to adhere to medallion. Tie a piece of the seam binding into a bow and adhere to the edge of the sentiment.
Using StazOn Olive Green ink, stamp the leaves. Using Jet black Archival Ink, stamp the birds. Using Magenta Hue ink, stamp the flower petals. Color the leaves with Bamboo Leaves Memento ink. Color the little birds with Danube Blue and Magenta Hue. Layer everything into the mold, spritz with water and run through the Vagabond 2. Lay everything out to dry. Once dry, layer the flower petals and add glitter and Prills to them and set aside to dry. Add glitter to the little bird and allow to dry. Once everything is dry, decide on placement and glue down.


WOYWW 511.....

Good morning all and Surprise!  I have been away for awhile and decided to try and become one of you again.  I totally got out of the habit of this and I have truly missed you.  Can I please come play again?  If you are wondering what is going on here with my showing a photo of my messy desk this morning, this is What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  We participants take a photo and post it then link it to our hostess' blog and then we can all have a look around.  You can head over to Julia's blog as she is the hostess for this little bit of madness and she has all the particulars listed there.


I'm beginning to think about Easter cards and so I've stamped and cut out some dogwood petals and I have the lovely doves ready to go through my die cut machine.  These will be happy sitting on the fronts of my projects.  I find it is never too early to start working on my cards because I have really slowed as the years are passing.

Well ladies that's it for me this morning.  I'm off to visit some of the other ladies and see what I have been missing.  I think I must have been gone about a year and a half maybe more.   Hopefully I can remember to get my act together each week and play along with you guys!

My Second Monday In A Row Post.....

Good morning everyone; I'm so glad you are here to join me again.  This is my second Monday in a row to post here on my blog.  I'm trying to begin posting more often as I have really neglected my space here!  I will be back on Wednesday with the regular Wednesday Inspiration with Heartfelt Creations!

It's a Christmas card!  Yes I'm determined to have a jump on this years cards and thought this would be a lovely way to begin! I was inspired by Kathy Clement's video on  Authentique Vintage Christmas Z Fold Cards 3 Ways Tutorial by Kathy Clement - YouTube . She just blew me away with this video and I decided to try and make one of my own. I did go ahead and add a belly band as it just didn't want to lay flat.



I used the Heartfelt Creations O Holy Night Collection and  added lots of sparkle to the sweet little images.  These were just cut out from the paper collection and then backed with chipboard (I actually used a piece of the chipboard included in the paper collection.)



I created a pocket by just cutting a piece of 1 1/8" paper and glued it down on three sides.  It is a quick way to do a sweet pocket.  I just cut out some of the tags from the paper collection and slipped them down into the pocket.  You could also include a gift card if you wanted.  I think I will be making more of these little lovelies as I mostly do money at Christmas!

Well I'm off to get my week started.  Hope your day is filled with joy!

Pink and Green......

Good Monday morning my friends.  Welcome and surprise!  I know I have gotten really lazy over the past year and just don't post like I should but I'm going to try and change all that.  I know you have heard all this before so we will just see how this rolls! 

We are going to start with a card made using bits and pieces from my desk.  I've been trying to tidy up a bit and these flowers and leaves were just lying about. As I was picking them up and putting them into a tray I thought these flowers from Heartfelt Creations sort of match so I will make a card.  I do love the pink and green color scheme!  Some of the Heartfelt Creations paper and a flower or two and you have a lovely card.  This card will have a sentiment stamped inside to fit whatever occasion I choose. 


 The glitter on my flowers isn't showing up very well so the next shot is a close-up and looks better.


As you can see my photography skills haven't improved much over the  years. Hehehe.....

Well this does it for me this Monday!  Hope your day is filled with joy!

For more tips on creating with the Burst of Spring collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/_8WJPTKIUlQ.
Instructions: My card size is 5 x 7". Make card base and cover with a piece of purple cardstock. Pick a piece of coordinating paper from the collection and layer it over the purple cardstock.
Using two of the ovals cut out a frame with the purple cardstock. Next cut out the Decorative Oval Die using white cardstock. Cut it apart so that it will fit behind the oval frame and glue down. Glue the finished oval frame to the card front and add the pearls. I also added a corner interest with the pearls. Set aside to dry.
Using Deep Purple Archival ink and Lulu Lavender Memento ink, stamp the flower petals onto white cardstock. Stamp the leaves using the Olive Green Stazon ink. Color using different ink colors to suit your taste. Using the coordinating die, cut out the petals and leaves and place them onto the3D Shaping Mold and spritz with water then run through the Vagabond machine. Lay out to dry. Once dry add Prills to the centers and glitter and again, allow to dry.
Stamp the Pansy Spray using Jet Black Archival Ink onto white cardstock and color using various inks and the Dove Blender Pen. Using the coordinating die, cut out the spray and add glitter, then allow to dry. Add the flowers and glue down then add dimensional tape to the back. Attach the spray to the bottom of the decorative oval.
I found one of the tickets on the paper collection and cut out then added dimensional tape to the back. Adhere to the front of the card and your card is ready to go. This one will mail easily!
