https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/129/how-to-create-dimensional-roses

Instructions: My card is 6 X 6.  Make card base out of watercolor paper.  I sometimes use that because of the strength and stability of the paper.  Cover the base with a card front and add glitter accents; set it aside to dry.  Stamp, cut out, color and shape the flowers and leaves.(I used Rich Cocoa Memento Ink to stamp the flowers and leaves)  Use the Frosting Powder on the petals of the flowers and set aside to dry.  Once the petals are dry I glued them together and then decided where I wanted them to be placed.  Glue them down.  I cut out the sentiment and edged it with some ink and then used dimensional tape to adhere to the front of my card.

You can watch a video on how to make the Classic Rose here:  https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/129/how-to-create-dimensional-roses

Instructions: My card size is 6 X 6.  Make card base and cover with one of the card fronts.  Die cut the oval layers using dimensional tape under the top layer to give it a bit more dimension.  I also cut an oval using a piece of the pattern paper so that some color is showing through the white top die cut.  Next adhere it to the card front covering most of the image on the paper.  Using the hot glue gun, I glued the silver rings to the card front.  Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamp and cut out the wedding bells.  Color them using the Dove Blender Pen and Memento Ink.  Next I added glitter to the bells and set them aside to dry.  Using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink stamp, cut out, color and shape the flowers.  I colored some of the art stones using the Pearlescent Coral stamp pad; just rub them over the top of the pad until they look like you want them to.  Glue them to the center of the flowers and let dry.  Next I colored the seam binding by spraying water on it so it would accept color easily, then rub the stamp pad on the craft sheet and spray water into the ink.  Swirl the seam binding in the color; scrunch and let dry.  Next tie a bow and glue it down.  Decide where you like your flowers and glue them down onto the bells and then glue the bells to the front of the card.  Your card is finished.

You can watch a video on making roses here: https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/129/how-to-create-dimensional-roses .

Instructions: My card size is 4 1/4  X 5 1/2.  Make card base and cut out the medallion on the card front.  Next I cut a strip of card stock and embossed it with the folder.  Glue this down onto the card front.  Stamp, cut out, color and shape the doves, flowers and leaves.(I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the dove and the sentiment and Rich Cocoa Memento Ink to stamp the flowers and leaves) Add glitter to the plumes of the dove and set aside to dry.  Paint the edges of the roses with the Crackle Paint and sprinkle the Frosting Powder over them; use the heat gun and set the powder.  I also used the Frosting Powder on the Medallion on the card front.  It gives the cardstock a bit more stability.  Next I took some of the Art Stones and rubbed them around over the Coral ink pad until the color suited me.  I glued them to the center of the smaller flowers.  Now glue the dove, leaves and roses to the card front.  I used hot glue to adhere these.  I looped the rings over one of the tendrils of the leaves and then glued the end down to hold them and keep them from slipping off the card front.  This lets the rings have movement.  Now cut out a sentiment from the paper collection and I colored the edges to match my roses and then glue it down.

Instructions: My card is 6 X 6.  Make card base and cover with one of the card fronts.  I used the Spellbinders dies to make a frame to bring attention to the center image.  Next I stamped, cut out, colored and shaped the flowers, doves, and wedding rings. (The dove and rings are stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and the flowers are stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink) I added glitter to the dove and her plumes and then glued her down onto the card front.  Next I painted the crackle paint and sprinkled the Frosting Powder on the edges of the rose petals and glued them down.  Now cut out one of the sentiments from the paper collection and glue it to the lower left hand corner of the card.  I added the micro beads to the ring set and allowed that to dry and then I glued it to the corner of the sentiment.  A very quick and easy card.

Dogwoods and Doves....

Good morning friends.  I'm here this rainy Monday morning sharing a card I have made using the Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood collection.  I love all things Heartfelt but this collection just speaks to me!  The beautiful papers and the lovely Dogwood flowers and of course the gorgeous doves.  I really want to do a mini album using these products and hopefully this is next on my list.  I'm trying my hand at a shutter card; it has been awhile and they can be difficult for me to figure out to make them lay the way they are supposed too.  I just needed a bit of practice and I think I'm back in the groove.



I had a lot of fun making this card and hope you enjoy it.  I think you will be seeing more of these cards in the future.  I will try not to do it to death buy I do like the look.

Well that's all from me this morning.  I hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Stamp, cut out, color and shape the love birds, flowers and leaves.  Add glitter to the flower petals and set aside to dry.  Cut out the word Aloha using teal paper and glue it to the top of the tag at a bit of an angle.  Next I used dimensional tape to adhere the love birds to the tag right under the word.  I placed the flowers and leaves where I thought they looked the best and glued them down. Tie some of the fibers in the hole of the tag and the tag is finished.  A very quick and easy project!

Circle Plumeria Card....

Good morning everyone and welcome once again to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!  I am here sharing another creation using the Tropical Paradise Collection.  I love the bold colors and the wonderful images as well as those Plumeria flowers!  The closest thing to a tropical paradise that I have ever experienced is the Dog Days of Summer in East Tennessee.  August can be very tropical but not actually in a good way! I have to admit I had never seen a Plumeria before so I had to go looking for a picture to know what the finished flower should be.  As it turns out, I love these flowers and hope you enjoy them as they grace the front of my cards for the next few weeks!

My card size is 5 X 7.  Make card base and emboss the front using the embossing folder. Set it aside. Next I cut out layers using the rectangles dies and different cardstocks.  I also used a piece of the paper collection as there are several layers of this die.  Glue the layers together and then use dimensional tape and glue to adhere to the card front.  I picked out an image from one of the card fronts of the paper collection and I cut it out using the circle die.  Next I again used the circle dies and cut out a frame using the teal cardstock.  This is achieved by just using the two largest dies.  Glue the circle frame to the image and use dimensional tape and glue to adhere to the rectangles on the card front.  Now stamp, cut out, color the flowers and leaves.  Dampen the backs of the flowers and shape then add some glitter to the petals and set aside to dry.  Next glue the flowers and leaves down around the circle medallion.  When the glue is dry, your card is finished!

My card is 6 X 6.  Make card base out of the watercolor paper for strength and stability; set aside.  Pick one of the 6 X 6 card fronts and using the Circle Dies cut out a circle in the center then cut a smaller opening circle out of a coordinating piece of the paper collection.  Glue these two pieces together and then back with purple cardstock.  I used some of the dimensional tape around the opening to give it a bit of depth.  Next I stamped, cut out and colored the Cockatoo and then added some of the glitter to some of the plumes around it as well as to the Cockatoo.  I slipped it down in between the yellow frame and the purple cardstock.  I added some dimensional tape to the Cockatoo and then glued it down. Next stamp, cut out, color and glitter some of the ferns and fronds and set them aside to dry.  Stamp, cut out, color and shape the flowers.  Add glitter to the edges and set aside to dry.  Next I stamped, cut out and colored the flamingo and added glitter on him and set him aside to dry as well.  I used ink to stain the seam binding and scrunched it and set it aside to dry.  Once dry I tied a bow and adhered to the bottom corner of the card.  I decided on the placement of all the elements and glued them down.  I cut out the word using purple cardstock and then glued it to the upper corner of my card.  My card is now finished.

Next I stamped the palm tree and colored the fronds with Memento ink.  I cut these fronds and used as leaves to go behind my flowers. Next I stamped, cut out and colored the flower petals.  I then shaped the stamen and added glue then dipped them into the pollen.  Set them aside to dry.  I sprayed the back of the flowers with water and then shaped them and set them aside to dry. Once dry I glued the stamen into the middle of the petals and then added the glitter to the edges.  Decide on the placement of the flowers and fronds and hot glue them down onto the front of the card.  Now go back to the paper collection and pick a coordinating piece of paper and stamp the sentiment on it.  Cut this out and add dimensional tape to the back to pop it up a bit and adhere it. Your card is finished!

Heartfelt Creations Wednesday - Hang in There Tag

Good morning everyone!  It's Wednesday once again and I'm here to share another Heartfelt Creations project.  This week I decided to make you a tag. Those of you who know me, know how much I love tags.  They are little works of art and can be a stand alone gift or can be slipped down inside a gift bag along with a small gift for someone special in your life.  I spend just as much time on making a tag as I do when I make a card so I can't say they are any quicker or easier to make but I just love them.

Instructions:
My Tag is 4 X 8 1/2.  Pick a piece of the paper collection and distress the edges then glue to the tag.  I used some of the Bamboo Leaves to go around the edges of the tag before I added the paper.  Stamp, cut out and color the palm tree, monkeys, the banana and the flowers.  Decide where they look the best on your tag and glue them down.  I cut the sentiment out of the paper and backed it with a piece of green cardstock to make a sign.  I used the dimension tape to adhere it to the top of the tag.  Next I cut a piece of white seam binding and sprayed it with water then I rubbed the Rhubarb Stalk ink onto my craft mat and then swirled the seam binding through.  When it achieved the color I wanted, I scrunched it up and laid it aside to dry.  Once dry I tied the bow and used Scor-Tape and glue to hold it down.  Next I tied a piece of the colored seam binding in the hole at the top.

The card is finished!

Another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday....

Good morning everyone and welcome.  Since it is Wednesday, I once again get to share another Heartfelt Creations project!  I'm continuing along using the Flowering Dogwood Collection and find that I am enjoying this set so very much! This has become my new very favorite collection and think you will see Dogwoods blooming here on my blog for awhile!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdsIOVMXjIQ&t=2s

My finished card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2.  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection and then pick one of the card fronts and glue that to the base as well.  This gives you a pretty colored edge to your card.  Next stamp, cut out, and shape the flowers and leaves.  The flowers and the dove are cut from the watercolor paper and the leaves are all stamped and cut out on a piece of the paper collection.   I used the Dove Blender Pen and London Fog Memento ink to add some color to the dove.  Next I added some glitter to the dove and set it aside to dry.  Now use the Dove Blender Pen and add just a touch of Rhubarb Stalk color to the edges of the flower petals just for a bit more definition.  I took the prills and rubbed some across the Guacamole ColorBox ink just to give them a little darker color.  I’m sort of OCD about the shades of things when I’m working with flowers.  Add these Prills to the centers of the flowers and set aside to dry. Next glue down the body of the dove and leave the tail feathers sticking up a bit. Place your flowers and leaves all around the dove and glue them down.  I cut out the little tag that says Faith from the paper collection and used dimensional tape to adhere it to the front, then I glued the half pearl on the edge of it.  Your card is finished.

He First Loved Us....

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!  I'm here this morning sharing another card I have made using the Flowering Dogwood Collection.  This collection is near and dear to my heart as I have many Dogwood trees in my yard and when they bloom in the Spring my heart sings!

I would also like to congratulate the semi-finalists for the Design Team Call. You can check them out over on the Heartfelt Creations Blog.  While you are there, go ahead and vote for your favorite designers!

My card size is 6 X 6.  Make card base and cover with one of the 6 X 6 card fronts from the paper collection.  Stamp and cut out the dove and add glue and glitter then set it aside to dry.  I chose one of the papers and stamped and then cut out the leaves.  Stamp, emboss, cut out and color the Dogwood flowers from watercolor paper.  I used the Dove Blender pen and memento ink to add color to the petals. I spritzed the back of the flowers with water and shaped with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  Shape the centers and glue onto the flowers and then add prills to the center.  I wanted the prills a shade deeper so I poured some out onto my Guacamole ink pad and rolled them around with my finger.  They take color well.  Next I cut out the window die and glued it down onto my card front.  I decided where I wanted the flowers and leaves and then glued them down. Next I added some color to the little dove using the Dove blender pen and the London Fog ink. Now shape the little dove with a stylus from the flower shaping kit and added a double dot to the back of him to pop it up from the rest of the card.  I added the half pearls to the window die and then added some glitter to the crosses and the dove in the upper right hand corner of my card.

Another Easter Card....

While I am still on the subject of Dogwoods, I have another Easter Card to share with you.  This one is a little less easy to mail but one that you might want to slip down in the side of an Easter basket.


If you can look closely, there is chunky glitter on the Dogwood blossoms and more glitter on the plumes of the dove!  I have fallen in love with this Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood Collection.  These will be stamps and dies that I always have on my desk.

This is all for me this morning.  I have much to do this beautiful Monday Morning.  Our weather here in East Tennessee is gorgeous for this time of year!

My card size is 6 X 6.  Make card base and then cover with one of the card fronts included in the paper pack.  These card fronts literally make such quick work of your cards and I’m sure you will be in love them as I am.  I added some glitter to some of the swirls on the paper and laid the card aside.  Next I stamped, embossed, cut out and colored the flower petals, centers  and leaves.  The leaves are cut out of one of the pretty papers in the paper pack so that everything matches.  The prills were just a shade lighter than I actually wanted so I poured some out onto the Bamboo Leaves ink pad and rolled them around with my finger to add a little more color.  I dampened the back of the flower petals and shaped them using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  I added a drop of glue in the center and added the prills then set them aside to dry.  Next I shaped the leaves a bit then decided where I wanted everything to be and glued down the flowers and leaves.  Next I cut out a sentiment from the paper pack and edged it with Bamboo Leaves Ink then popped up using the dimensional tape.

Easter Card

Good morning everyone! I'm here this morning to share an Easter card I made using the new Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwoods Collection. If you look very closely there is glitter on the dove's tail plumes and his chest.  My camera was not really wanting to pick up the shine.


I am always trying to make cards that will mail without a lot of fuss and bother. This one will do nicely. I will be sharing a couple more cards in the coming days using very 3 dimensional flowers.  I love the look but they are expensive if you have to mail them.

This is all for me this morning.  I hope you remember to vote for me to remain on the Heartfelt Creations Design Team here:  http://hcgo.co/DesignTeamVote2017

Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood Release Day...

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Release Day! Please stay with me as this is a very long post because I have a lot of information to share with you this morning.  So go get your favorite morning drink and let's begin!

Each year Heartfelt Creations puts out a Design Team Call!  If you think you might have an interest for being on their team, you should follow this link for all the information on applying: https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/library/files/Design_Team_Call_2017.pdf I would also like to ask that you to go over to Heartfelt Creations and vote for me to remain on their amazing team.  The link for this is here: http://hcgo.co/DesignTeamVote2017.  I would really appreciate your vote!

Heartfelt Creations invites you to usher in the spring season with the new Flowering Dogwood Collection!  Immerse yourself in this newest springtime assembling of designer papers, divinely detailed cling stamps and coordinating dies steeped with beautiful meanings and symbolism perfect for the Easter Season!  The dogwood tree is surrounded by a mesmerizing legend within the Christian faith…once the size of a mighty oak tree it was chosen to be used to construct the cross on which Jesus was to be crucified.  The tree became unhappy with its purpose and would never again grow large enough to ever build another cross.  Its branches would become narrow and crooked and no longer suitable for construction.  The delicate dogwood flower itself is a wonderful symbol of the Easter season…four petals that resemble the shape of a cross, the center laid as a crown of thorns, at the tip of each petal an indent resembling nail punctures, and a reddish hue around those indents resembling the blood of Jesus.  Soft and pastel in coloring, this newest paper collection reveals beautiful springtime shades of pinks, peaches, and greens which set stunning backdrops for scripted lettering and graceful swirls, while darker hints of blues and blacks bring out the gorgeous detail and coloring of the showy dogwood florals.  Bountiful blossom filled branches, peaceful white doves and hillside chapels are just a few of the beautiful illustrations found within the cling stamp sets!  Assemble the perfect dimensional dogwood flower using the varying sized petals within the Flowering Dogwood Cling Stamps Set and die cut using the coordinating dies.  The ideal collection to send out springtime and Easter wishes to friends and family!

My card size is 5 X 7.  Make card base and set aside.  Cut the Spellbinders Elegant Labels 4 out of a piece of the paper collection and glue to the card base. Next cut out the Eyelet Oval Die using white cardstock and a piece of contrasting paper from the collection.  Glue these two pieces together and add the half pearls.  Use dimensional tape and dots to adhere the oval piece to the card front. Next I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and cut it to make a banner.  Ink the edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. Adhere to the card front with dimensional tape.  Stamp, emboss and cut out the flower petals.  I used Rhubarb Stalk Memento Ink and the Dove Blender pen to add just a bit of color to the outer edge of the petals.  I shaped the petals using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit and set them aside.  I took the prills and ran them over the Guacamole ink pad just to give them a bit darker appearance and then glued them to the centers of the flower petals.  I stamped the leaves onto a green piece of the paper collection and cut them out.  Shape the leaves and set aside.  I stamped the dove onto watercolor paper and cut out.  I used the London Fog Memento Ink to shade the dove to give it some definition and then I added glitter and set it aside to dry.  When everything is dry add the dove and then the flowers and leaves and set aside to dry.  Your card is finished.

Box dimensions are 2 3/4 X 2 1/2 X 3 3/4 Tall. I found this box on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORUKdiJYPzE&t=646s

Follow instructions for making the box.  Once you have the box lying flat decorate the panels before you glue together.  I cut the front and back panels and stamped the images using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I then used Memento Ink and the Dove Blender Pen to color.  I also stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black.  Now glue the panels front, back and sides onto the box form as well as the top panel of the box.  Next I stamped the flower and doves on watercolor paper.  I embossed the flower petals and then cut out the doves and flowers. Next color the doves and flowers.  Now stamp the leaves onto a piece of the paper collection.  Cut them out as well as the flower centers.  Shape the flowers and leaves and then add the centers and set aside to dry.  I also took the Lettuce Entertain You Prills and rubbed them over the Guacamole ink pad to give just a shade darker color and add this to the centers of the flowers.  Set aside to dry. Now assemble the box.  Shape the doves and add glitter and let them dry.  Once dry, add dimensional tape to the doves and add some of the flowers and leaves to the side panels of the box.  Next I decided where I wanted the flowers and leaves on the top panel of the box and glued them down.  I took the 1” hole punch and cut a half moon out for a finger hold on the front panel of the box.
