Another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday.....

Good morning everyone and welcome to my little corner of the world!  I'm here to share another project I have made for Heartfelt Creations








Products Used:
HCDP1-283 Young at Heart Paper Collection
HCD1-7158 Young at Heart Die
HCD1-7159 Simply Classic Die
#159723 Designer Dries Clear Adhesive
#352854 Metal Tip for Adhesive Bottle

Other Supplies:  White Cardstock, Scor-Tape, Dimensional Tape, Wooden Knob, Green Acrylic Paint, E6000 glue

Instructions:  My little box is 2 1/2 X 4. The instructions for the box were found here:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/windowtreatbox/    I followed the instructions but didn't cut out the window.  Before you put the box together measure and cut the panels to decorate and glue them down. I used Scor-Tape to put the box together because of the strength.  I cut a strip of the paper to go around the bottom of the box as well as the top. Next I painted the wooden knob and set it aside to dry.  Once it is dry use the E6000 glue to adhere it to the box top.  I just happened to have a color of paint that perfectly matched the paper.  How often does that happen? To decorate the box I just found a sheet of the designer paper that had these images and I fussy cut the little scooter and used dies for the flags and signs. Dimensional tape is used to adhere them to the sides of the box.  I just love how this turned out and it would hold quite a bit of something to be given as a gift.

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!  My post will be a little long this morning as I am featuring two projects I made for the release!  So come join me as we
hit the open road with the new Young at Heart Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Retro in style, this fun and playful transportation themed assembling of designer papers, cling stamp sets and coordinating dies will have you reminiscing and reliving past road trips with family, taking in a flick at the local drive in, sitting at the late night hamburger joint with friends in your classic automobile, or soaring the open skies in a vintage airplane! The classic style paper collection is filled with far out transportation graphics from an era in time where life was carefree and the journey was wherever the open road would take you! Diamond checkered patterns, retro themed signs, beach scenes and late night diner script mixed with vintage vehicle graphics are enveloped in a groovy color palette of bright stoplight reds, yellows, and greens, with a hint of electric pinks, flashy teals and glowing orange tones. Two sets of nifty cling stamp sets with coordinating dies reveal high wheeled bicycles, old fashioned airplanes, classic coupes, vintage pick-up trucks as well as several nostalgic banners and signs! A third fun filled cling stamp set flaunts hip and amusing sentiments sporting 50’s era style script perfect for completing the styling of days gone by on all of your retro themed creations! So grab your main squeeze, make sure you’re the first one to call shotgun and travel along with us as we cruise back in time where we will always be forever young!

I cut out the sign and glued the word to it and used dimensional tape to adhere to the card front.  I stamped, cut out and colored the leaves and glued them down around the sign.  The card is finished.  I just love it when I can get something ready to go so quickly.

Heartfelt Creations Wednesday and the Release of the Beary Fun Retreat Collection....

Long days filled with sunshine begin to fade and the crisp evening breezes begin to call for cozy wool knit sweaters as the fall season slowly ushers out the lazy days of summer! Along with the falling leaves and a last surge of floral blossoms, autumn brings with it a more relaxed and reflective way of life and a reminder that winter will soon be around the corner. Autumn also brings with it a fun that only autumn can bring…playing in crisp piles of fallen leaves, picnics with warm beverages, cozy evenings spent around the campfire and exploring fields filled with rows and rows of sunflowers bowing their heads giving way to the season! Even the animals of the forest recognize and celebrate the subtle arrival of autumn, spending their last few days before hibernation playing and making preparations for the arrival of the upcoming winter season. Come along with us and join in our fall festivities as we go on one final fun filled retreat with the Beary Fun Retreat Collection by Heartfelt Creations!

The dynamic paper collection boasts a color palette filled with beautiful tones of burnt oranges, rusty reds, midnight blues, along with leaf like greens and golden yellows all mixed with checkered plaids, decorative stripes and gorgeous imagery of blooming sunflowers and falling leaves. Three sets of detailed cling stamps with coordinating dies allow you to join in the fall themed fun of a charismatic bear family enjoying their last retreat before winter sets in. Whether sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows near an adorable treehouse, enjoying songs strummed out quietly on guitar, or filling up on delightful meals of honey, these cute images are ideal for embellishing all of your fall themed cards and scrapbook layouts!

Instructions:  My card is 7 X 7.  I made the card base using the watercolor paper because of the size and for stability.  Decide on which window box you want to use and cover it with the paper collection.  Cut one of the card fronts to fit on the back panel and glue it down. Glue the box to the front of the card leaving the right side unglued so you can slip in the tags later. Next using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink I stamped the sunflowers, leaves and bear onto watercolor paper.  Using various Distress Inks I watercolored all the elements.  Add the Prills to the flower centers and set aside to dry.  I used Glossy Accents to cover the ladybug and set it aside to dry.  Once everything  is dry, decide on the placement and glue them down.  Next using the tag dies cut out the tags and the backing and glue them together.  Add the ribbon and slide them into the side of the box. Next find a sentiment and back it with the navy blue paper and using the dimensional tape adhere it to the top of the card.

A Quick Birthday Card.....

Good morning everyone!  Do you find you are always needing a birthday card?  It used to be I'd just pop out and buy a card and mail it but now I feel guilty if I spend that money when I have all these paper crafting supplies stored here!  Recently it was my brother's birthday and of course I didn't have any made up ahead of time so I needed to get one made to send off to him.  I have a die that cuts out a step card so I was able to make up a  card rather quickly and then I actually decorated it with leftover bits left on my desk from another card so it all worked out!



The fox, flowers and pretty papers are all from Heartfelt Creations.  They always have just what you need for making all kinds of projects and make it so easy to "WOW" the people who receive your cards!

Well that's it for me! I"m off to get my day started.  I plan to clean the craftroom today, it is really getting messy!

Instructions:  My card is 6 X 6.  Cover the card base with the paper collection and use the circle dies to cut center holes in the paper.  Using Rich Cocoa ink stamp the flowers and leaves.  Cut out, color and shape and add the flower soft and set aside. Next using Tuxedo Black ink stamp the turtles, sea horses, and fish.  Cut out and color them then set aside.  This is also a good time to add any glitter that you want.  Find the Jelly Fish on the paper collection and cut it out.  The die fits perfectly so if you are not a stamper you can use the images on the paper.  I also cut one of the fish as well.  Now you are ready to decorate.  Decide where you want the elements to go and glue them down and the card is finished.  This is a very easy card for the end result to be so wonderful.  I hope you try this as it has a huge WOW factor.

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.

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.

Next I found a ticket on the paper collection and used the Luggage and Tags Die to cut it out.  I dabbed glue onto the tag using a sponge and then sprinkled the Crystal Clear over it to give the tag a little more festive look.  Glue down the Wagon Wheel and then I added dimensional tape to the back of the ticket and adhered it to the tag.  Now I used a bit of the Lady Bug Memento Ink on my craft mat and sprayed it with water and then swirled the seam binding through the color.  Scrunch it and let dry then tie in the hole in the top of the tag.

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

#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. 

I had so much fun creating this card just for you!  I hope I have inspired you to want to get a jump on your Christmas cards.  For more inspiration, you can visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog and see what the other designers have made for you!  I know you will see many creations that you will want to make for your own!

My card size is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2.  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection.  Hot glue a piece of white lace along the bottom of the card.  Stamp, cut out, color and shape the roses.  Use the Frosting Powder on the edges of the petals for a very encrusted look.  Next I stamped, cut out and colored the dove and added Crystal Clear to the doves plumes.  I used a piece of the dimensional tape to attach it to the bottom of the card. I used some glue on a sponge and dabbed around the edges of my card and then used the Frosting Powder to add some interest to the card.   Next stamp and cut out the Classic Wedding Roses stamp and use the dove blender pen to color using Memento inks.  Glue it to the front of the card and then glue your roses around the die cut. Your card is ready to go.


Next is the little album for the bride and it has tags tucked away inside for the bride to write thoughts about her big day.

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 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!
