Watch a video on making the Hibiscus Flower:  https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/119/flower-shaping-101-how-to-create-a-gorgeous-hibiscus-flower-for-cards-papercrafts-and-scrapbooks

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.


Next up is a Classic Petunia Shadowbox Card.  This is a new concept for me and I love how it turned out!

Watch a video on shaping the Classic Petunia here:  https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/152/ez-classic-petunia-flower-shaping-techniques

Instructions:  My card is 5 X 7.  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection. Cover the edges of the shadow box with the paper collection before you make the folds actually make the box.  Once the shadow box is covered glue it, just around the edges and adhere it to the card.  The fourth side is left open so you can slid the tags inside.  Now stamp, cut out, color and glitter the hummingbirds and butterfly.  Stamp, cut out, color and shape the flowers and leaves.  Glue everything down and allow to dry.  Cut out the tags from the paper collection and tie the fiber through each one.  Slip them down behind the box and your card is all set.

I have really enjoyed showing you my two projects this morning and hope you head over to the Heartfelt Creations Blog for more inspiration!  The other design team members have worked to bring you so much beauty there and I just know you will find something that just speaks to you!

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

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.
