Belated Christmas Wishes!

Good Evening All!
A slightly different post today as I wanted to share with you all what my daughter made at school this year for Christmas, she is 7 1/2.  I had wanted to post this on Christmas Day, but with cooking for 15, there unfortunately wasn't a spare minute!  I was so impressed with this make! It is simply made out of clay and then painted.


Wishing you all a wonderful New Year's Eve!
Thank you all for reading my blog this year and leaving such lovely comments.  Looking forward to more crafting and inspiration from you all in 2014!

Hi Everyone, hope you are all nearly ready for Christmas which is getting very, very close now! Thank you also for the lovely Birthday messages I received last week, I had a lovely day!

Heartfelt Creations recently launched The Floral Key Collection which has a neutral, vintage colour palette.  The collection includes key and lock stamps along with the Burnished Key Die which enables you to cut all 17 images at once!  I have made a pink and girly card which could be used for many occasions.



Card Size: 12cm x 12cm.
Instructions:
Stamp the focal image onto pink card using black ink and heat emboss using clear powder.  Die cut using a circle die from the standard circles large(number 5 die, counting the smallest as number 1).  Also die cut a black circle using die number 6 from the same set and a white circle using die number 6, using standard circles small.  Layer these three together using foam pads. Die cut the Filigree Delight frame using brown, grey and cream patterned paper from the Floral Key Paper Collection.  Then cut this piece in half, form into a square and adhere together using glue. (Mine measured 10cm x 10cm).  Cut a square from black glossy card to measure 11cm x 11cm and a square from pink card to measure 10 1/2cm x 10 1/2cm.  Layer these onto the main card using double sided tape.  Adhere the main image to the centre.  Stamp the two matching keys using the Burnished Key Stamp and heat emboss with clear embossing powder, die cut using the matching die.  Create a triple bow from pink organza ribbon. Thread the keys onto the silver cord, tie around the centre of the bow and then into a bow.  Add to the main card using a hot glue gun to complete.

Heartfelt Creations - Tattered Fall Postcard

Good Evening to you all!
Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last post and also for all your support and votes that helped me continue on the Heartfelt Creations Design Team!
This is my card that was featured on the Heartfelt Creations blog yesterday.  A small, autumnal coloured card using the postcard stamp along with some felt, twine and a button!


Card Size: 4 1/8" x 3 3/8".
Instructions:
Using your Grand Calibur, cut two rectangles from cream card, using the 3rd and 5th dies from matting Basics A(counting the smallest as the 1st die).  Using a piece of low tack adhesive place the smaller die cut on top of the larger( this is only to keep it in place whilst stamping). Using the Kaleidacolor ink pad, ink up the postcard stamp and stamp directly onto these pieces firmly.  Separate the pieces and gently blend distress ink around the edges.  Using Matting Basics B, use the 4th die to cut a rectangle from dark brown card.  Use the 6th die to create your card blank.  Adhere the smallest two die cuts together and adhere the larger stamped image onto the card front.  Die cut the vine from brown card and orange felt.  Cut down and adhere to the front.  Wrap twine around the smaller image, create a triple bow and add a button.  Adhere to the card front using foam pads.

Heartfelt Creations - So Sorry

Good Morning All and Welcome to my newest followers!
A CAS card today, but loved how this card turned out.  (It's much better in 'real life', I struggled to get a good photo of the shimmer highlights I added to the flowers).  These stamps are so pretty and intricate in design that sometimes I love to simply stamp them, as you can then see all the detailing of the stamp itself!






Instructions
Card Size - 14.5cm x 11cm.

Begin by stamping the Dahlia Bouquet image onto white card using VersaMagic Purple Hydrangea ink.  To create a watercolour effect, ink the stamp up, then stamp onto some scrap paper.  Spritz the stamp with some water and then stamp onto some white card and leave to dry.  This creates a gentle, soft look and when dry, add some highlights using a Sakura Clear Star pen and gently wash over with a waterbrush.  Cut down the card to measure 10.5cm x 13.5cm.  Add the same ink to the edges and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.   On separate white card stamp the sentiment using the same ink and heat emboss.  Die cut using a circle die and punch a hole in the top.  Add more ink around the circle edge and again heat emboss.  Add silver cord around the card looping through the sentiment and tie in a  bow.  Secure the sentiment in place using foam pads.  Layer up onto some purple card using foam pads and adhere to main card front using double sided tape.

Heartfelt Creations and Scor-Pal Projects

Hi Everyone,
Today we are doing a cross promotion with Scor-Pal.  Please visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog and the Score-Pal blog and be prepared to to be blown away with all the amazing projects featuring the Score-Pal and Heartfelt Creations products.  I am new to the Scor-Pal Measuring and Scoring Board and must say that I found it so easy to use, I love it!





Instructions:
Begin by following the Note Holder tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers using the red pearlescent card stock and the Score-Pal board.  When you have scored and cut out the base of the box, stamp the snowflake stamp all over both sides of the card using white Ink It Up ink and heat set.  assemble the box adding the ribbon and button detailing.  For the notelets, cut down the copy paper to measure 3 1/2" squares and round the corners.  Using grey London Fog ink, stamp the snowflake into the lower right corner and over stamp with the Christmas message using red Lady Bug ink.  Repeat this process until all the notelets are complete.  Place all the paper squares into the box.

To make the lid for the note holder, take a 5 3/4" square piece of vellum and score at 12 on each side.  Stamp the snowflake all over using Versamark ink, add tinsel embossing powder and heat emboss.  Adhere the box lid together.

Card Size: 7.5" x 3 3/4"
On white card stamp the Winter Wonderland sentiment using Red Ink It Up ink and heat emboss using clear embossing powder.  Die Cut using a circle die.  Add more red ink around the edges and heat emboss using clear embossing powder.  Die cut the swirl die from white card and cut in half.
Measure some red pearlescent card to measure 7.5" x 3 3/4" and a strip of card to measure 1/2" x 3 3/4".  Stamp all over these card pieces as before using white Ink It Up ink and heat set.  Score and fold the card in half using the Score-Pal board.  Adhere the strip of red card over the die cuts and add to the card using glue.  Cut off the parts that overlap at the sides of the card.  Add the message to the centre (hiding the exposed part of the die cut) using foam pads.  Add a white insert.

This a perfect little set to make as Christmas present for a a crafty friend!

Heartfelt Creations - Winter Haven

Good Morning Everyone!
Even though the sun is shining today, my project for Heartfelt Creations  this week is a Christmas card using the Gateway to the Seasons Collection.  Such a lovely image, that I have simply stamped it, gently watercoloured and used a glitter pen to highlight the snowy areas,( the glitter is there although it was hard to photograph!). Full instructions are below.



Card instructions are:
Card Size: 15cm x 10cm
Stamp the Winter Scene onto cream card using Memento pear tart ink.  Using a water brush, gently go over the image to soften the colouring and allow to dry.  Die cut using a circle die.  Also die cut the next size up out of green card.  Add green ink around the edges and heat emboss using clear embossing powder.  Using a glitter pen, highlight the snowy areas and layer the die cuts together.    Die cut 2 of the largest rectangles out of  bronze pearlescent card. On one of the die cuts, stamp the snowflake using Versamark ink and allow to dry.  Cut  a small card blank (to fit inside) measuring 13.5cm x 8.5cm and glue the die cuts together to form the outer card.  Add the winter scene to the main card using foam pads.  Die cut the tags from green card.  Stamp the wording using Versafine black ink, heat emboss and cut out.  Adhere to the tags using foam pads.  Add ribbon around the card, add some gold cord threading though the tags and tie into a bow.

In The Garden.....

Good Morning All!
A male card today, with a garden theme.  This little stamp I have had for a few years and I really enjoy using it.  I have stamped the image twice, coloured it with Promarkers and then die cut it out.  I added some blue distress ink around the edges whilst the card was still in the die, then decoupaged the plant pots and the fork using foam pads.  The background was embossed and I have used ink around the edges and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. (I have used this technique a lot recently, gives a lovely finish as an alternative to layering onto card).  Finally the words and tag dies are from Heartfelt Creations, have used these a lot recently too - just love them!

Heartfelt Creations - Wonderful Birthday

Good Morning All.  Apologies for not posting my Heartfelt Creations card yesterday.  It has been made using the Sun Kissed Fleur Collection.


I am really enjoying creating cards with clean lines to show the beautiful detailing of these stamps by Heartfelt Creations!  They stamp so easily with wonderful results!  ( I tried my best to get a good photograph again without too much reflection from the acetate!)

The Card Instructions Are
Card Size 10.5cm x 14.5cm.
Cut a piece of card to measure 10cm x 14cm and dry emboss using the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  Add orange ink to the edges and emboss with clear embossing powder.  On a separate piece of white card stamp the Striped flowers with orange ink and heat emboss, die cut using the matching die.  Choose three flowers and adhere together using foam pads.  Stitch the button onto the flower using some orange thread.  On a piece of acetate measuring 10.5cm x 14cm, stamp the frame just above the centre in black StazOn ink and leave to dry.  On a separate piece of white card stamp the sentiment in Versafine Black Ink and heat emboss.  Die cut using a Labels 3 die.  Adhere the sentiment die cut to the card using foam pads.  Add the acetate (so that the frame is over the sentiment) and attach using eyelets on the left side first.  Create a slight dome with the acetate and attach to the right side with eyelets.  Add the flower to the acetate using foam pads, then adhere to the main card using double sided tape.

Heartfelt Creations - Only One Like You

Good Evening All!
It's Wednesday, so I have a Heartfelt Creations card to share which is also featured today on the Heartfelt Creations Blog

I created a Clean and Simple Card using the Sun Kissed Fleur Swirls stamp.  Such a lovely, detailed stamp that I wanted to use gilding flakes with it. ( I tried my best to get a good photograph, but it still doesn't show the beautiful shine of those gilding flakes.)
The card instructions are:
Card Size 10.5cm x 14.5cm.
Using the flower swirl stamp, stamp four times onto a piece of plain white card using the flitterglu.  Cover the images with gilding flakes and clean up using a texture sponge.  Cut down the card to measure 10cm x 14cm. Add some more flitterglu to the edges and add gilding flakes.  Cut a piece of plain white card to measure 2.5cm x 10cm (this was the width of the ribbon I used). Add this to the card.  Add the ribbon over this card and adhere on the reverse using double sided tape, then add the twine and tie into a small bow.  Adhere this to the main card blank with glue.  Stamp the sentiment onto white card using black ink and heat emboss.  Die cut using a Spellbinder circle die.  Adhere to the card using foam pads.
