Heartfelt Creations Classic Roses


For my Heartfelt Creations project for today, I have once again used the newly released Classic Rose collection.  Begin with a 4" x 9 3/8" deep green card stock base.  Add a DP panel trimmed to 3 3/4" x 9 1/8".  Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp the 3 images as shown in the sample and die cut with their coordinating dies.  Color with Copic markers:  Roses - R32, R35, R37, Leaves - G21, G24, G28.  Using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit, add some dimension to the leaves.  Cut 3 deep green card stock panels: one is 3 1/4" x 2 7/8", two are 3 1/4" x 2".  Add DP panels and then adhere the rose images as shown on the sample with Art Institute Dries Clear Glue.  Trim the flower border strip from the paper collection; cut 2 pieces that are 3 3/4" long and back with deep green card stock. Note: I added a bit of color to the roses with Copic R35 so they more closely matched the coloring of my images.  Add all the panels to the card base using the sample for reference.

Heartfelt Creations Snow Kissed Card and Gift Box


For my Heartfelt Creations post today, I have created a card and a gift box using the newly released Snow Kissed Collection.   For the card, begin with a 5.5" x 5.5" navy blue card base.  Using the outer snowflake die from the Snow Kissed Flakes and Take set, center the die onto your card front and then run through your die cut machine only half way.  Trim your card stock above and below the snowflake.  Trim a piece of snowflake paper from the Snow Kissed Paper Collection to fit on the left side of your card front; temporarily attach and then tape the outer snowflake die down to this panel.  Remove the panel and run it through your die cut machine then mount to the card front.  Die cut two of the large snowflakes from Cryogen metallic card stock.


Using Designer Dries Clear  Adhesive, attach a snowflake to the front and to the inside of the card.  Add some pearls and a gem to the outer snowflake and card front.  Create another small snowflake paper panel to fit the inside of the card front following the same instructions as above.  Find the paper panel with the snowman in the lower right, trim to 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" and adhere to the inside of the card.  Trim out the sentiment, back with navy card stock and mount to card.  Stamp an assortment of snowflakes with Memento Danube Blue ink and die cut with the coordinating dies.  Attach to the card with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  
 

Using Memento Danube Blue ink, stamp and die cut the tag from Cryogen metallic paper.  Add some color with Copic B00 and N1.   Die cut two Gift Boxes from navy card stock and assemble. 


Add snowflake paper panels to each box; a sentiment ticket and snowflakes.  Add a 1" strip of navy card stock inside the edge of one of the boxes to create a tab for the second box to slide over.

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.
