Heartfelt Creations Botanic Window card


Today I want to share this stunning window card created with the new Heartfelt Creations Botanic Orchid Collection.  Using Cyrogen Metallic card stock, begin with a 6" square card base.  Add the beautiful pink script paper from the Botanic Orchid Paper Collection.  Using Cryogen Metallic card stock, die cut the inner and outer dies from the Botanic Window die set.  Place the center window die onto the card front (using the outer die to ease with placement) then cut the window opening.  Using Designers Dries Clear Adhesive, add the window to the card front.

 
Using white dye ink, stamp the 3 petal image from the medium (4 times) and small (6 times) Botanic Orchid Cling Stamp set onto vellum.  Heat emboss with Diamonds and Pearls Embossing Powder.  Die cut them out with the Botanic Orchid Die.  Using Memento Rose Bud ink, add color to the back of the petals.  Add dimension to the petals with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, then stack two petals to create each flower adhering with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  Add Minnie Pearls Prills to the flower centers.


Stamp the Italiana Grapevine images with white dye ink onto vellum then heat emboss with Diamonds and Pearls Embossing Powder. Die cut with the coordinating Italiana Gravevines Die.  Add Memento Bamboo Leaves Ink to the back of the grapevines, shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit then add around the flowers with Designers Dries Clear Adhesive.  Stamp the Regal Hummingbirds with white dye ink, heat embossing with Diamonds and Pearls Embossing powder and then die cut with the coordinating die.  Add color to the back using Memento Rose Bud, Bamboo Leaves and Teal Zeal inks.  Add to the window edge with Designers Dries Clear Adhesive.

Heartfelt Creations A Gift of Love


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.  

 
Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp 3 sets of the smallest Botanic Orchid onto Cryogen metallic card stock and cut out with the coordinating die.  Use Copics R83 and R59 to add color then shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  Stack the petals then adhere to the card front with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive adding some yellow glitter glue to the flower centers.  Stamp the orchid with flourishes from the Regal Hummingbird Cling set twice with Memento ink onto Crygoen metallic card stock then die cut with the coordiating die.  Color the vines with Copics G24, G28 and G40 then trim them off the flower.  Adhere to the card front with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  Trim out the A Gift of Love sentiment panel from the paper collection, back with burgundy card stock and mount on the card front with dimensional foam.  


For the inside of the card, add another 5 3/4" square panel from the Botanic Orchid paper collection.  Die cut the fancy border from the Regal Borders and Pockets set from burgundy card stock and add to the inside of the card.  Add a panel from the paper collection for a sentiment/signature panel, matted with burgundy card stock. Stamp the large sentiment panel from the Botanic Orchid Wishes Cling set and die cut the flowers using the coordinating die from the Botanic Orchid Bouquet Die set.  Color with the same color combination as above and add to card inside with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  Add a bit of yellow glitter to the flower centers.

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.

Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea Mini Book


Today I want to share with you my Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea Mini Album.  I just love how easily this came together.  Using black card stock create a 6 1/4"  x 6 1/4" album, using the stacked hinge binding method.  Create 4 pages, 6" x 11 3/4" scoring at 6" and folding them inwards.  Add a piece of black card stock 6" x 6" on the left panel of each page to create a center pocket for adding tags and storing photos.  Decorate each page with panels from the Under the Sea Paper Collection.


Here is a short video showing you all the details, scroll down my blog for more details on products used.

 Cover
Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp the flowers (4 times), leaves (3 times) and shells once from the Tropical Hibiscus Stamp set onto Cryogen metallic paper.  Die cut them out with the coordinating Tropical Hibiscus die set.  Add color to the flowers with Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries Distress Ink.  Using the Deluxe Flower Shapin Kit, shape the flowers.  Trim off one of the stamens and then stack 2 of the medium and 2 of the small flowers.  Save the large flowers for another project.  Add yellow glitter to the stamens and flower centers.  Add color to the leaves with Evergreen Bough Distress ink, shape and then add them and the flowers to the front of the book.  Using Copic markers: R32, E11, E04 add color to the sea shells them mount them with dimensional foam on a scene for under the bubble globe.  Add seed beads as sand inside the globe.

Page 1
The panel on the right page opens up for adding a photo; the sea shell which was fussy cut from the paper collection is used as a closure.  The left panel has journaling space on the front and space for a photo on the back.  I created a bit of dimension on the center panel by cutting out the center square, adding chipboard to the back as well as black card stock and then mounting it back on the panel. 
I added a little sentiment tag to the center panel.  You can see the tab above the center panel that pulls out an additional journaling tag with space for a photo.  I used a gray Copic Multiliner to add all the journaling lines.

Page 1 flap
This is the back side of the right page from the photo above.  If I opened each page up all the way it would be 4 panels wide and you would not see all the detail.  On this page I used a border from the Border Essentials Die set to create a belly band to hold my journaling/photo tag.  I added a small shell die cut to make sure the panel does not slip out.

 Page 2
The panel on the right also opens to add a photo with plenty of journaling space on the front.  I fussy cut the beautiful fish from the paper collection for my center panel but you can purchase the Under the Sea Stamp set and coordinating Under the Sea Die set to create your own beautiful fish.  I only had the Creative Essentials kit (paper and Tropical Hibiscus stamp and die set) at the time I made this album.  The left panel flips open for a photo and has a tag tucked in behind for journaling and a smaller photo.

Page 2 flap
For this page, I die cut two corners from the Ornate Borders and Pockets die set to create pockets for my journaling/photo tag.  I added a sentiment panel as well.

Page 3
Using the smallest corner from the Fleur Borders and Pockets die set and black card stock, I created a small pocket to tuck in another journaling/photo tag.  I fussy cut the jelly fish for my center panel (but this is also one of the dies and stamps in the Under the Sea set)  I added lots of Crystal Ice Stickles to the jelly fish for some bling.  Across the top of this page I added a border from the Border Essentials Die set.  The left panel is another journaling flip page with room for a photo, again using a sea shell as a closure.  I added Glossy Accents to the port hole so it looks like glass.

Page 3 flap
Here is another journaling/photo tag that opens to the left.  I used one of the small elements from the paper pad to create the closure.  

Page 4
Using another piece of border, I created a pocket for photo storage, adding a journaling/photo tag.  I fussy cut the fish but again you can do the same with the Under the Sea die/stamp set.  I created a bit of dimension on the center panel by cutting out the center square, adding chipboard to the back as well as black card stock and then mounting it back on the panel.  On the left we have another flip page, this time using a small square embellishment from the paper pack as a closure.

Page 4 flap
Here is another journaling/photo tag that opens to the left.  Again, I used one of the small elements from the paper pad to create the closure.
Inside back cover
More pockets for journaling/photo tags and additional photos.  On the right panel, I used a die from the Fleur Borders and Pockets set to create the corner pocket; adding a die cut from the Ornate Borders and Pockets to hold the tag in on the top.  

Back
A wonderful scene for the back of my album.  

Spine
For my ribbon embellishment, I added an acrylic fragment backed with a small under water scene, a bottle with seed beads and some great sea shell beads.

Heartfelt Creations Under the Sea


Heartfelt Creations May release is called Under the Sea.  What a fun collection filled with beautiful flowers and fun sea creatures.  My card today is an example of what you can create with just the Creative Essentials kit.  Beginning with a 6x6 coral card stock base, I added the Hibiscus panel 6" x 6" panel, trimming it down to 5 3/4" square.  From the next panel which has the underwater scene, I cut out the square section and then trimmed out the circle center section.  I backed each of these with card stock and then popped up the circle with dimensional foam.  I added a bit of Crystal Ultra Fine Transparent Glitter to the seaweed.


Using text weight Cryogen metallic paper, I stamped the Tropical Hibiscus and the Leaves twice with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Using the coordinating Tropical Hibiscus die set, I cut them out.  I added color using Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries Distress Ink for the flowers.  I used G24 and G28 Copic markers for the leaves.  Using my stylus tool from my Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, I shaped the petals and stacked two same size petals to create each flower.  I used the 3 smallest blossoms from the stamp set.  I trimmed the stamen off the lower petals.  I added yellow glitter to the stamens and flower centers.  Then added micro fine transparent glitter around the edges of the flowers and leaves.  I matted the "You Inspire me" panel from the paper pack and added that to finish the front of the card.


To complete the inside of the card, I added another 6x6 panel and layering one of the smaller panels from the paper pad for a sentiment.  I fussy cut one of the fish from the paper; popping him up with dimensional foam.

Heartfelt Creations Only One Like You


Today I am using the Heartfelt Creations Berry Cafe Collection for a card for that special friend in your life.  Begin with a 6"x6" yellow card stock base.  From the Berry Cafe Paper Collection, find the red and black checked panel, trim it to 5 13/16" square and mount it onto the card base.  Remove the panel with the scene in the above photo from the paper collection.  Stamp "There's only one like You" from the Classic Message Cling Stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Then carefully trim out the two inner squares, back with yellow card stock, and then mount them with dimensional foam onto the card base.


From the Sweet as Honey Cling Stamp set and matching Sweet as Honey Die set, stamp and die cut the beehive and the fence using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Stamp Berry Blossoms and Blooming Berries and die cut with their matching Berry Blossoms Dies.  Copic markers used:  Beehive and Fence - E51, E53; Ground - E30; Berries - R35, R37, R39; Leaves - YG21, YG-23; Flowers - B000, Y17.  Using dimensional foam, mount the Beehive die cut over the beehive on the center panel.  Using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, shape the berries, leaves and flowers and adhere them to the card with  dimensional foam and Art Institute Dries Clear Glue


For the inside of the card, add another 6"x6" panel, trimmed down to 5 13/16".  Adhere the fence to the lower right and add a sentiment panel, stamping "So Glad you're my friend" from the Classic Message Cling Stamp set.   My last step was to add Scattered Straw Stickles to the flower centers.

These are wonderful stamps and dies and so much fun to color.  I have missed coloring and am very happy to be crafting again.  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations blog for more fabulous inspiration.

Heartfelt Creations Thanks A Bunch


I have wonderful news, I made the new Heartfelt Creations Design Team.  I want to thank Emma Lou and the rest of the amazing team for the chance to design for them.  I have loved their product for years and am so excited to start working with it.  I thought the announcement was going to be on May 4th so I was not prepared with a card today, but I very quickly put this one together this morning.

I began with a 6"x6" green card stock base.  I added a background panel from the fabulous Heartfelt Creations Berry Cafe Paper Collection.  Next I cut a 5"x4" green card stock panel, adding three 1 1/2"x 3 3/4" patterned paper panels.  This makes a perfect backdrop for my strawberries.  Using the new Blooming Berries Cling Stamp set, I stamped them with Memento black ink and then cut them out with the coordinating die from the Berry Blossoms set.  After coloring, I used my Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to add a bit of roundness to the leaves and berries, then popped them up with dimensional foam.


I wanted to keep the colors bright and Spring-like so I used the following Copic markers; R35, R37 and R39 for the strawberries, YG21 and YG25 for the leaves.  I added a bit of B000 to the blossoms as well as Y15 to the centers.  A bit of Diamond Stickles to the flower centers finished them off.  The sentiment panel is also from the paper collection, adding Thanks A Bunch from the Heartfelt Expressions Cling Stamp set.  I trimmed one strawberry from the second die cut in the Blooming Berries set and added it to the lower left of the sentiment panel to balance out the card.  Last step was to add more Diamond Stickles to all the flower centers including the ones on the sentiment panel.  You can't have enough sparkle and I think it gives the card a bright and happy look.

Thank you for supporting my blog and stay tuned for lots of fabulous projects with the upcoming Heartfelt releases.  My first official post will be on May 4th.  Have a wonderful crafting day.
