Another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday....

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!  This morning I have another card to share with you.  I'm always needing Birthday Cards and Heartfelt Creations makes it easy to keep a few held back for the next birthdays in your family.

The inside of the card:

   Heartfelt Creations Products Used:
HCD1-284 Heartfelt Love Paper Collection
HCD1-7161 Sweetheart Borders Dies
#159723 Designer Dries Clear Adhesive
#85 Crystal Art Glitter
#71037 Lipstick Red ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink

Other Products Used:
Bling on a string, White Cardstock, Hot Glue Gun


My card size is 4 1/2” x 6”. Cut a piece of white cardstock 6” X 8 1/2".  On the 8 1/2 side, score at 4 1/2". This makes the card front measure 4” X 6” and the back panel is 4 1/2” X 6”.  Cover the front and the inside of the card with a piece of the paper collection. 

Cut out the border die using white cardstock and adhere it to the card front about 1” down from the score line.  Next I chose one of the sentiments from the paper and backed it with a piece of white cardstock.  Use the Lipstick Red ink to edge the white cardstock to match the paper I chose to cover the front of the card with and then glue the sentiment to the piece of cardstock.   Glue this down, tucking it behind the die cut piece.  Next I used my hot glue gun to add the bling along the top edge of the die cut piece.

I went back to the paper pad and chose the cute little frog sentiment and cut it out.  I matted it with another piece of white cardstock and then glued it down to the inside of the card.  I used the Designer Dries Clear Adhesive to add some glitter accents to the little fireflies and the cattails.  Once everything is dry, the card is finished!

To see how to shape the Flowering Dogwoods watch this video:

My card is 4 1/2  X 6.  Make card base and cover with a piece of red cardstock and then cut out a card front and glue that down as well.

Next using Sap Green ink stamp the dogwood flowers and then ink the centers of the flowers.  Use Bamboo Leaves Ink to stamp the leaves and then cut out using coordinating diees.  I used Aged Mahogany ink to color the tips of the flowers and then using the Flower Shaping Kit shape the petals and then add the prills to the centers.  Set aside to dry.
Now using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink stamp the doves and use the coordinating dies to cut out.  Use London Fog to shade the doves and add the glitter to the plumes. 

When everything is dry, decide on your placement and glue everything to the card front.  Your card is finished.

To see how to shape the Sunflower watch this video:

Use your paper pack and cover the front, spine and back covers of the journal.  Also cover the insides of the front and  back  panels. I made the medallion on the front by using the Window Box Accents Die and then fussy cutting a piece of the paper collection.  Glue the two pieces together and add dimensional tape to the back to pop it up a bit.   Add all the decorations you want on the outside and then on the inside of the front cover I made a pocket so I could add more photos or other keep sakes.  Next pick out which pictures you want to showcase as well as the journal pages you want to use.  Now decide about the flowers you want to use.

When using the Foam paper for the roses, I stamped the petals and leaves with Timber Brown Stazon Ink and Memento Inks.  I colored the flowers with various Memento inks as well as Pan Pastels. Using the corresponding dies cut out the flowers and petals.  When I used the Foam paper I used the heat tool to warm the petals and leaves then I shaped and set aside.  When using regular card stock to stamp and cut out the sunflowers, petunias, dogwoods and leaves I used Rich Cocoa Memento Ink  and then I used the traditional flower shaping techniques and the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape everything.  You can refer to the video links to suggestions in the shaping of each flower.

Crop the photos (I used the Large Oval Dies and the Large Circle Dies for this) and decide on the placement and then glue down flowers and do the journal page about each person.  I chose Four Generations of Strong Christian Women in my Family for my journal.  

Thanks for sticking with me until the end of this post!  I know the supply list is long but please don't be put off and not try one of these journals.  The end product is such a feeling of accomplishment!

Somehow it just didn't feel right not having a post this morning so I'm showing one of my Christmas cards for this year.  If you receive this one in the mail, please pretend to be surprised!  Hehehe.......

This is one of my new embossing folders for this year; I actually just love it and had to showcase it with these cute little mittens!  Every year I try to purchase new embossing folders at this time so I can use them for the holidays!

I hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful and that you get to spend time with family.  Now don't forget to join me on Friday for the Heartfelt Creations Release!

Another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday......

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!   I have a wonderful box to share with you this morning!  I love how this turned out and it was quick and easy!

I envision this box being filled with sweets and given to a friend.  It would be great to go along as a birthday gift!  In the next picture you can see how the box closes at the top...quick and easy! You can also get a good look at the flowers as well!

   Heartfelt Creations Products:
HCD1-284 Heartfelt Love Paper Collection
HCD1-7163 Gift of Love Box Die
HCPC3769 Wildwood Florals Cling Stamps
HCD1-7125 Wildwood Florals Die
#159723 Designer Dries Clear Glue
TSMP400 Rosebud Memento Ink
TSMP701 Cottage Ivy Memento Ink
HCST1-401 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit

Other Supplies:  White, Green and Mauve Cardstock, Scor-Tape

For tips on creating with the Wildwood Cottage Collection watch this video:

Instructions:  Using the mauve cardstock cut out the box die and the decorative panel in each side. I used Designer Dries Clear adhesive to adhere the decorative panels to the box. Next I chose a pretty piece of the paper collection and cut out the panels that are are at the top of the box.  Glue them down.   I used score-tape to hold the box together because of it’s strength. 

 Once you have the box put together it is time to stamp the leaves and flowers and get them ready to decorate the box.  I used Rosebud Memento Ink to stamp and color the flowers and Cottager Ivy Memento ink to stamp the leaves.  Once you use the dies to cut out the flowers and leaves it is time to shape them with the flower shaping kit.  Spray a bit of water onto the back side of the flower petals and leaves and use the stylus to burnish the back side of them.  Set aside to dry.

Once everything is dry, decide on the placement and glue everything down.  Your box is now ready to fill and give as a gift!
