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.

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.

For my Heartfelt Creations project today, I have created a diagonal easel card.  Begin with a burgundy card base 6" x 12"; score at 6" and then score the left hand panel diagonally from the outer upper corner to the lower inner corner.  Fold in on the diagonal score line then attach a 6" x 6" burgundy card stock panel to the folded side to create a diagonal easel card.  Add a 5 3/4" square panel from the Botanic Orchid Paper Collection.  Using burgundy card stock, cut the round die from the Raindrops on Roses die set and adhere to the center of the card front with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.

Heartfelt Creations Botanic Orchid Luminary


Today is new release day at Heartfelt Creations and we have a beautiful collection to share with you called Botanic Orchid.  I have made a Luminary for you today.  I began with two pieces of Aquamarine Stardreams metallic card stock.  The first is  7 1/2" x 11"; score this vertically at 1/2", 5 1/2" and 10 1/2" then score horizontally at 1".  The second is 7 1/2" x 10"; score this vertically at 5" then score horizontally at 1".   Cut between the bottom and side flaps and create notches as shown in the picture below.


Using the center die from the Botanic Window Craft die, cut window openings in each of the panels.  Using the outer two dies from the set and Curious Cryogen metallic card stock, cut 4 frames for the windows.  Using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive attach each of the frames.


Here you can see I have added my stamped and die cut images and attached the two panels together.  Attach the last flap to create a 4 sided box.  Add a base piece of card stock 5" square on the bottom outside; adding another base piece 4 7/8" square to the inside for extra support. 


Once assembled, add borders along the top using one of the die cuts from the Border Essentials die set.


This side uses the hummingbird from the Botanic Orchid Bouquet Stamp set and matching dies.  I have colored him with my Copic markers and added yellow glitter glue to the flower center.  I will list the Copics I used at the end of my post.


For this side I have used the beautiful orchid stem, also from the Botanic Orchid Bouquet Stamp set and matching dies.


 Here I have used the Regal Hummingbird Cling Stamp set and matching dies.  I had so much fun coloring these fabulous stamped images.


The last side uses a hummingbird from the Regal Hummingbird Cling Stamp set and matching die.  The floral spray from is from the Botanic Orchid Wishes Cling Stamp and uses the matching die from the Botanic Orchid Bouquet Craft Dies.

Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms


Today I want to share with you two projects using Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms collection.  For this first card, I used only the paper collection.  Begin with a 6"x6" teal card stock base.  From the Birds and Blooms Paper Collection, add a 5 3/4" DP background. Create a vertical border, 2 1/2" x 5 3/4" from another piece of DP, back with teal card stock and mount offset on the right side of the card base.  


Using detail scissors, trim out the rose corner embellishment, cutting out 3 additional flowers. Attach to card as shown in the example.  Use dimensional foam to mount the extra flowers to create a 3D look.


Find the tag with 3 bluebirds and trim out the center panel.  Trim out an additional bird and another wing.  Add to the first bird with dimensional foam. Add the ticket sentiment to the top of the tag.  Add Ice Crystal Stickles to the flower centers.


For my next project, I began with a glossy card stock tag; 4 1/8" x 8 1/2".  To this I added a DP background, 3 7/8" x 8 1/4", trimming the corners to match the tag.  Cut the fancy border from the Ornate Borders and Pockets die set from glossy card stock and adhere to the bottom of the tag with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  Stamp the Birds and Blooms Collage stamp onto glossy card stock with Versamark ink, embossing with clear embossing powder.  Swirl in some color using Memento inks: Teal Zeal, Cantaloupe, New Sprout and Rose Bud.  Take a tissue and buff any excess ink off the stamped image.  Trim this down to 3 3/8" x 5 1/8" and add a glossy mat behind it.  Mount onto the tag as shown above.  Add the Happy Birthday tag from the paper collection to the upper corner of the panel.


Using Versamark ink, stamp the branch with flowers and the birds from the Birds and Blooms stamp set and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Use the matching dies from the Birds and Blooms die set to cut them out.  For the branch and flowers, color with Memento Bamboo Leaves, Rich Cocoa and Rose Bud.  For the bird, use Memento Rose Bud and Teal Zeal.  Use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to give some dimension to the leaves, flowers and birds.  Adhere the branch to the tag with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  Add the bird with dimensional foam.  Lastly, add Minnie Pearls Prills to the flower centers.

Heartfelt Creations Happy Father's Day


I wanted to use the new Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea collection to make a Father's Day card.  Beginning with a 6" x 6" black card stock base, die cut a fancy border along the bottom with one of the Regal Borders and Pockets dies.  Using one of the 6" x 6" panels from the Under the Sea Paper collection, die cut the upper matching border along the bottom edge then trim to 5 3/4" wide by 4 1/2" high and mount onto your card stock base.  Using Memento Tuxedo black ink and Cryogen metallic paper; stamp the coral from the Under the Sea Coral stamp set and die cut with the matching die from the Under the Sea Coral die set; stamp the shell and porthole from the Coral Reef Collage stamp set and die cut with the matching dies from the Coral Reef Collage die set.  Die cut the little fish from the center of the port hole die cut.  Copic markers used:  Conch shell - E11, E13, E51; Porthole - C2, C4, E13, G02; Fish - YR16, YR18, R29, BG72; Coral - R43.  Find the port hole on the patterned paper in the paper collection and trim out the center area.  Glue the colored fish over the one on the paper.  Die cut 5 additional port holes from black card stock, gluing them on top of each other to form sides for a shaker. Add a piece of acetate behind the colored port hole, then glue down to the stacked port holes.  Add some Blue Micro Glass beads; attach the back panel and then attach to card base.  Add two stacked dimensional foam pieces behind the center top of the conch shell, then pull the sides down and glue to your card base.  Add the coral behind the conch shell.  Stamp Happy Father's Day from the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set onto Cryogen metallic paper; matting it with black card stock and adhering to the card base with dimensional foam.  Add Crystal Ice Stickles to the shell and coral for some bling.

  
 For the inside of the card, using the bottom die of the previously used Regal Border; die cut the decorative edge onto the 5 3/4" square patterned "There is only one like you" paper.  Adhere to the card base.  Using another border from the Regal Borders and Pockets die set, create a decorative border using the left over paper from the card front.  Using Memento Tuxedo black ink and Cryogen metallic paper, stamp the seahorse from the Under the Sea Stamp set, cutting it out with the die from the matching Under the Sea die set.  Copics used:  B63, B66, BG32, BG34, R43, YR21, BG72  Add a sentiment panel matted with black card stock; mounting the seahorse just to the right.
