Heartfelt Creations Wednesday....To a Beautiful You....

Good morning everyone and welcome to Heartfelt  Creations Wednesday!  It is a hot and muggy week here in East Tennessee but it is, after all, late August.  I long for Fall and the cooler temps; it is my favorite time of year!

This morning I'm here sharing a project I made for the Heartfelt Creations design team.


Can you see the dew on those petals?  I love these flowers and am always happy when I get to use them on a card!

Products Used:
Sunrise Lily Paper Collection HCDP1-263
Sunrise Lily Cling Stamps HCPC-3720
Sunrise Lily Die HCD1-787

Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit HCST1-401
Krystallos Shard Glass #901

Other Supplies:  White and Green Cardstock, Dimensional Tape, Yellow Pollen

Instructions:

My card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2.  Make card base and cover with one of the card fronts from the paper collection.  I added glitter to the leaves to add a  bit of interest and set aside to dry.  Stamp the flowers in Rich Cocoa Ink, cut out and color.  Dampen the back and shape then set aside to dry.  When dry assemble the flowers and then shape the stamen and add ink to ends and dip into the pollen; glue to the centers of the flowers. Next I added Krystallos Shard Glass to the edges of the flowers.  Wow, that made them just pop! Glue down the flowers and then find a sentiment from the paper.  I added a piece of green cardstock behind my sentiment to make it stand out better.

Butterfly Card...

Good Monday morning everyone.  For most people Monday signifies the end of the weekend and back to work. For a happily retired person like myself, Monday is a happy day and I never dread marching right along to the beat of a different drum. So yes, maybe I'm a little too happy about Monday, but please don't judge.  When you retire you will totally understand!

This morning I want to share a card I made using bits and pieces off my desk and  I wanted to use my new die from Crafters Companion that makes a step card.  The butterflies and the "Thinking of You" panels are also part of the set and make decorating the card extra easy.  These little flowers and leaves were left over from another project so I used them to help decorate the card.  The papers I used were left over from another card.  It is the Classic Petunia Collection from Heartfelt Creations!


This made a really great card to send along to one of your friends or family to let them know you are thinking about them and  it was relatively painless since I used leftover pieces on my desk.  So now I'm off to enjoy my Monday ... hope your day is a good one!

Now die cut the decorative die using white cardstock and glue it down.  Now stamp and emboss the flower petals and then you can cut them out.  I used Angel Pink Memento Ink to color the petals and went around the edges with Victorian Velvet.  Stamp color and cut out the leaves and add glitter to the veins of the leaves. Spray the backs of the flower and leaves and shape then glue the flower together.  Glue down the leaves and the flower.   Next I found the little sentiment on the paper and cut it out and then I layered it with a piece of green paper.  I curled it a bit and then used dimensional tape to adhere it to the front of the card.

Heartfelt Creations Fold Out Card for a Happy Birthday....

Good morning everyone.  I'm sitting here checking some files and I found this birthday card I made that I haven't shared with you.  It was during the time I was having computer issues and I thought it was lost forever  but here it is.



I'm not going into the details but I did use the Classic Rose Collection  stamps and dies to make the flowers and leaves.  I thought it turned out beautifully and I hope you enjoy!

Instructions:  My card base measures 5 1/2 X 5 1/2; finished overall dimensions 6 1/4 X 6 1/2.  Make card base and set aside.  Cut a piece of the paper collection and using a sponge with adhesive on the end, blot over the paper and then sprinkle with glitter.  Using the same sponge with more adhesive apply more onto the paper and then use the Crystal Clear to add more interest.  Set aside to dry.  Once dry glue to the card base.  Next cut an image from the paper using the circle die and mount it onto a larger circle of red cardstock.  Next I cut a Lacey Circle out of white cardstock and mounted the image piece onto that.  Using the hot glue gun, glue down the string of pearls around the edge of the image circle.  Next glue this whole piece to the top right hand corner of the card. At this point, I decided I wanted a bit of sparkle to the round image and went back in and added some glue and Crystal Clear.  Cut out one of the tickets on the paper collection and use dimensional tape to mount to the card front.  Next cut a medallion from white cardstock and glue it to the bottom of the card front.  Stamp in Tuxedo Black ink the image and color using the Dove Blender Pen and Memento Inks.  I added glitter just to make it more festive.  Once it is dry use dimensional tape and glue over the medallion.

Sunflowers on my Desk This Afternoon...

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all well.  The  Brooks household is humming right along today.  I just wanted to share a couple of photos with you so you can see I haven't just planted my behind in the rocking chair!


Of course these sunflowers are  brought to you by Heartfelt Creations and Glenda's fingers.  I used the Classic Sunflower stamp and die.  I always love working with these and the finished product always brings a smile to my face.  They bring back memories of a grade school play (a hundred years ago)  I was a sunflower among several other sunflowers.  My mother sewed crepe paper dresses for all the sunflower girls and we wore the sunflower head piece with a circle cut out for our faces.  Isn't it strange the memories that come flooding back from just making a few flowers. The song we sang was:  "We are sunny sunflowers, sunny sunny sunflowers picked from Amy's garden just today". Ahem, I promise that's all that you will have to endure of that!  When stamps and dies can bring on the memories, that is saying a lot about Linda Bontranger and her designing capabilities.  Thank you for the walk down memory lane this afternoon!

The next photo is a picture of Molly just because.  I thought it was cute and wanted you guys to see her as we go along.  She is really developing her personality and she and Bella are doing so well together.


At this stage she is about as broad as she is long!  And she is a chow hound but babies need to eat a lot cause it takes a lot of energy to keep her running.  Her little legs are so short whenever we are in the yard she starts to run and she always trips and rolls quite a few times.  She tries so hard to keep up with Bella.  Soon my little girl!

Heartfelt Creations Four Fold Cardinal Card....

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!  It is hotter than blue blazes here in East Tennessee and it has been a joy to work on Christmas cards using the Festive Holly Collection!  This morning I'm showing you a four fold card I made using the papers, stamps and dies from this collection!  It really is a quick and easy card when you use their products and I actually found I had a harder time taking photos of the card than in the making of it.





Products Used:
HCDP1-280 Festive Holly Paper Collection
HCPC- 3791 Festive Holly and Cardinals Cling Stamps
HCD1-7145 Festive Holly and Cardinals Die
HCPC-3792 Festive Holiday Cling Stamps
HCD1-7146 Festive Holiday Die
#241159 Dove Blender Pen

TSMP900 Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
TSMP707 Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink
TSMP300 Lady Bug Memento Ink
#85 Crystal Art Glitter
#159723 Designer Dries Clear Glue

Other Supplies: Dandelion Memento Ink, White Cardstock, Pumice Stone Distress Ink, Lace, Bling on a String, Score-Tape, Dimensional Tape, Hot Glue Gun, Cotton Ball

Instructions: My card size is 4 1/4 X 6 1/4.  To make the card base start with a piece of cardstock 11 1/2 X 5 1/2 and another piece of cardstock measuring 2 3/4 X 4 1/4.  Start with the larger piece and score on the long side at 1/4 - 3 3/4  - 7 1/4.  Turn and score at 5/8 down to the last score line and cut away.  Next glue the 2 ¾ X 4 1/4 to the 1/4 score line and then cut away the bit of scored cardstock above the glued on cardstock.  This makes the base of your card.  There are many of these listed on Pinterest so if you are a visual learner like me that might be the way to go.  Next I covered the panels with different pieces of cardstock and some of the paper collection creating layers.  The papers are so beautiful and just really put me into the Christmas spirit!  On the back panel I used Score-Tape to adhere a piece of lace to the bottom of the panel and then glued one of the pretty card fronts on top of that.  I hot glued the Bling on a String and then stamped the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Next die cut the pretty top piece and glue it to the top of the panel.  Moving to the next panel I used the cotton ball and Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink and laid down a layer of color in the center of the panel.  Use a light hand as it is easier to add more but once it is down you can’t take it back; so slow and easy here.  Stamp the lamp and the holly using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and die cut the images.  I used the Dove Blender Pen and the different inks to color these two pieces.  Stamp the sentiment on the bottom of the panel using Tuxedo Black Ink.  I used dimensional tape to pop up the image so it has a bit of dimension.  I also added some glitter here and there just for a bit of interest, after all it is the season!  The rest of the panels are just covered with pieces of the pretty paper collection with a bit of glitter added.  On the front panel I used the Crystal Clear.  The card is now finished.  Folded flat it can mail and extended out, it makes a beautiful decorator piece.  I hope you try this card for one of your Christmas cards this year.

I love this design and will probably be using it again soon.  I'm also getting a jump on my Christmas cards and am very happy to be able to set them aside until I need them.  If you would like a bit more inspiration just follow this link over to the Heartfelt Creations Blog and see what the other designers have done this week!

Next I used the tags die to cut out one of the tags from the paper collection and using the dimensional tape I glued it to the front circle.  The card is ready.

Instructions: My card is 4 1/4  X  5 1/2.  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection.  Cut out the medallion and glue it to the bottom of the card front.  Next stamp the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut out using the Spellbinders die; use dimensional tape to adhere to the top of the card letting part of the sentiment lay above the card fold.  Next stamp, cut out and color the rose petals and leaves using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.  Shape the leaves and set aside.  When you finish making the rose use glue and the Frosting Powder on the edges of the flower petals.  This product is so unusual in that you can add a little heat and allow it to remain sort of clear as I have done on this card or you can heat a little more and it will go more white.  I think it just gives a very classy look to the roses!  Now place the leaves and the rose over the medallion and glue them down and your card is finished. 

Thanks for sticking with me until the end, I know this has been a long post.  Now if you would like you to go to the Heartfelt Creations blog for more inspiration from the other design team members!

Bugle Vine Blooming in my yard.....

I have this vine blooming in my yard and I wanted to share it before I give it a hair cut.  Each year it gets huge and hangs almost to the ground and after it blooms I cut it way back.  The hummingbirds love it but it will take over if you let it!




A photo from above the vine:


My late husband set a T post for this vine to climb; I think it makes a beautiful shrub!

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.

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!
