Heartfelt Creations Clean and Simple Duo


For Heartfelt Creations today,  I have two holiday cards to share created with the new Snow Kissed collection.  For my first card,  "From Our House to Yours" begin with a 6" square green card stock base. Add a striped DP background 5 3/4" square.  


Find the panel with the chickadee and trim off the outer border.  Carefully trim the circle out of the middle of this panel and mount it to a green circle backing piece.  Add green card stock to the back of the square panel and center on the card front.  Add two pieces of chipboard to the back of the circle and mount onto the card front.  Trim out the "From our Home to Yours" sentiment and back with black and then green card stock. Attach with ATG and dimensional foam.


Add another DP panel to the inside of the card.


For my second card,  "Baby, It's Cold Outside" begin with a 6" square green card stock base.  Add a 5 3/4" DP panel then create a border using some of the striped DP. Find the panel with the creek scene and trim the "Baby It's Cold Outside" off the bottom as well as the outer snowman edge.  Mount this on a piece of green card stock and adhere to the card base as shown in the sample.  Mount the trimmed saying on a piece of green card stock and center on the border piece you created.

  
Stamp the waving snowman and cut out with the matching die.  Color with Copics and then mount onto the card using ATG and dimensional foam.  Add snow marker to the base of the snowman and hit lightly with a heat gun to puff it up.  Add Silver Gelly Roll to the bell buttons on the snowman and Glossy Accents to his carrot nose.


Add another DP panel to the inside of the card.

Emma Lou's Birthday Blog Hop

We are celebrating Emma Lou from Heartfelt Creations birthday today with a blog hop and a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Heartfelt Creations store.  Please scroll down for official rules and the members blog links. 


My card begins with a 6" square Bazill Bouquet card stock base.  To that I have layered several panels of DP from the Italiana Riviera Paper Collection.  I also added a beautiful lattice medallion from the Raindrops on Roses die set adhered with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  I stamped "On your Special Day" from the Classic Message Cling Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Cryogen metallic card stock .  I then sponged Memento Sweet Plum around the edges of the sentiment.  Again using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and text weight Cyrogen metallic paper, I stamped lots of flowers from the Botanical Rose Cling Stamp set and die cut them with the matching Botanical Wings dies.  I sponged Memento Sweet Plum onto the petals, shaped them with my Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and then stacked them to create various size flowers.  Use Designer Dries Clear Adhesive to adhere them to the card front.  

Card front

Next I stamped the largest Grapevine from the Italiana Grapevines Cling Stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Cryogen metallic card stock.  I sponged Colorbox Butter ink into the centers of the leaves and then Memento Bamboo Leaves ink on the rest.  I shaped the leaves with my Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and then using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive tucked them in around the flowers on the card front.  Lastly I added Crystal Ice Glitter glue to the flower centers and the vines.

 Inside of card

For the inside of the card, I started with another piece of DP and used a computer generated sentiment panel to which I sponged Memento Sweet Plum.  I added one more small flower as well as some Grapevines to finish the card.

3D Envelope front

Now a card this lovely needs a beautiful envelope so following this great tutorial on the Heartfelt Creations blog, I created a 3D envelope so my flowers won't get crushed.  I used the same collection of papers, stamps and dies to decorate my envelope.

3D Envelope side

You can see that my envelope is about 1/2 inch deep providing room for the dimensional flowers.

3D Envelope back

I added a band of paper across the back of the envelope as a closure; just tuck the flap under it.  I love this card and hope it might inspire you to create today. 

Heartfelt Creations product used:

Other supplies:  Cryogen Metallic card stock, Cryogen Text Weight paper, Bazzill Bouquet card stock,  ATG, Crystal Ice Glitter Glue,

Heartfelt Creations Celebrate the Season Cards


Today is Heartfelt Creations day and I want to share three cards I made using the newly released Celebrate the Season collection.  Each card begins with an A2 card base, 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" when folded.  There are many panels in the paper collection that will fit wonderfully on this card base.  By adding sentiment panels and a bit of color you can quickly create a beautiful holiday card.


Find the panel with the snowflakes and garden gate.  Trim down to 5 1/4" x 4" and mount to the teal A2 card base.  Find the light blue snowflake paper, stamp Merry Christmas with Versacolor black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Color the holly with Copic G40 and RV66.  Trim and mount onto a teal card stock panel.  (Rather than using dimensional foam, I used chipboard behind my sentiment panels.  It makes them sturdier and gives a more professional look.)


Trim a piece of the mauve snowflake paper down to 5 1/4" x 4" and mount to the white A2 card base.  Find the panel with the circle and poinsettias.  Trim just outside the mauve border as shown and mount onto white card stock.  Using Memento Tuxedo black ink, stamp 2 large poinsettias and 1 small as well as the mittens, then die cut with the coordinating dies.  Color the flowers with Copic V12 then crease down the center of each petal with the smallest nib in your Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  Pinch the petals together, then stack the flowers as shown.  Add gold glitter glue to the flower centers.  Color the mittens with Copic V12 and V15, adding Silver Gelly Roll to the snowflake pattern.  Adhere the mittens and poinsettia to the card with Art Institute Dries Clear Glue.  Trim out the Happy Holidays Ticket, add chipboard to the back and mount to the card.


Trim a piece of the blue snowflake paper down to 5 1/4" x 4" and mount to the purple A2 card base.  Find the panel with the oval and poinsettias and trim off the outer edge.  Mount this to purple card stock then center on the card base.  Cut out the Merry Christmas sentiment from the paper collection, mount on purple card stock, add chipboard and mount on the card.

Heartfelt Creations Cascading Christmas Card


For my Heartfelt Creations project for today, I have once again used the newly released Celebrate the Season collection.  Begin with a 12" x 8" piece of teal card stock.  Download this PDF to show you step by step how to create the Cascading Card base.


Die cut the top of the Ornate Gateway from teal card stock, as well as the fancy heart piece from the Raindrops on Roses.  Adhere with Dries Clear Glue to the center section and the back section as shown in the example.  Use various papers to decorate the card panels.


 Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp the Laurel Wreath, 2 Laurel Borders, 2 large holly and 2 small holly onto Cryogen metallic paper.  Die cut with coordinating dies.  Color with Copics.  Using Memento Lilac Posies ink, stamp 10 small poinsettias and 4 large poinsettias, cutting them out with the coordinating dies. Sponge Lilac Posies around the edges of the petals then add dimension with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  Stack and glue 2 of the same size flowers to create 5 small poinsettias and 2 large poinsettias.  Following the example, adhere all the elements to the card and then add silver micro beads to the flower centers as well as some decorative flat backed pearls. 

 

Cut 4 strips of paper 1/4" x 3", fold in half and add a 1/2" of ATG on each end.  Slide these inside the two open sections to create bottoms.  Cut a piece of teal card stock 6 1/2" x 4 1/4", scoring and folding to create a booklet 3 1/4" x 4 1/4".  Add a sentiment panel from the paper collection.  Punch a hole in the corner and add a decorative bead and finding.  Slide this into the back opening.  You can add a gift card to the front section.


This finished card will lay flat and slip into a 5" x 7" envelope.

Heartfelt Creations Celebrating the Season


Christmas in July is upon us and I love to make Christmas cards.  Today I am using my Heartfelt Creations Sparkling Poinsettia Collection.  I began with a 6" x 6" burgundy card stock base. Find the DP paper with the fabulous candle and poinsettias on it.  This is one half of a 12" x 12" page; the candle is on the lower left and the sentiment is to the right of it.  Trim the candle section to 5 3/4" square. Trim just the sentiment banner out and back it with burgundy card stock.  Add to the card base as shown.  Add Glossy Accents to the candle and flame.


Now you could leave the card like this and it is beautiful but I wanted to add some dimension.  Stamp the smallest poinsettia from the Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set three times with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Curious Cryogen metallic paper.  Die cut with the coordinating Sparkling Poinsettia Die.  Color with Copic markers; R46, R59, YR16.  Add shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit then using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, adhere two petals to create each flower.  Add yellow Stickles to the flower centers.  Adhere the flowers around the base of the candle.


Finish the inside of the card with more DP and a sentiment panel from the paper collection.

Heartfelt Creations Warmest Wishes


For my Heartfelt Creations project this week, I am again showcasing the Botanic Orchid Collection.  Begin with a 6" square card base of burgundy card stock. Add a 5 3/4" square background from the Botanic Orchid Paper Collection.  Cut various sizes of DP creating 3 panels, backing each with burgundy card stock.  (This is a great way to use up those left over scraps)  Arrange on the card base, adding a sentiment strip from the paper collection as a border.  
 

Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp the Warmest Wishes sentiment onto Cryogen metallic card stock and color with Copic markers.  Using detail scissors, fussy cut the sentiment out.  Adhere to card base as shown with dimensional foam.  Stamp the image again and trim out the two largest flower centers.  After coloring, use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to give the petals some dimension, then adhere to the stamped image with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  



Stamp the Regal Hummingbirds and die cut with the coordinating die.  Color with Copics and then mount on your card with more dimensional foam. Using R59 and the Copic Airbrush, color some clear gems and adhere to the card with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.
