Heartfelt Creations - Romantique Birds

Good Morning All! We are getting very close to Christmas now, where has all the time gone? I still have so much to prepare and get ready and no tree up yet! When I was growing up, we used to put up the tree on my Birthday as this then counted down the 12 days to Christmas! Hoping to do it one day next week to make the house more festive whilst making more dried orange decorations - just love the smell around the home from them! Made some a few years ago and they have lasted, just need to make some more to give as little presents.

Here is my project this week for Heartfelt Creations.  A very, very simple quick and easy card to create, with a little silver twine to complete.  I have added glitter accents to the flowers, but it was really difficult to photograph - it is there I promise!

 The products used can be found on the Heartfelt Creations blog, along with more ideas and inspiration from the design team.  Instructions are below.






Card Size :   12 1/2cm x 12 1/2cm (4 7/8" x 4 7/8")
Instructions:
Create a card blank from white card.  Select the paper shown from the paper collection and cut to measure the card front size. Add pink ink around the edges and heat emboss with clear powder. Adhere to the card front using double sided tape. Create a loopy bow using silver twine on the bow maker, add to the card corner as shown.  Secure on the reverse. (I made a tiny hole on the top fold and threaded the cord through).  Add silver twine to the oppopsite corner too.  Add glitter highlights to the flowers and flower centres using a glitter pen.

Heartfelt Creations - Romantique Swans Swimming

Good Morning All! Hope you are all feeling festive now that we are in December? I have my Birthday this month too, which  gets mixed up in all the festive preparations!  I still have lots to do as always and the frosty weather is not helping!

Here is my project this week for Heartfelt Creations.  I wanted to use the beautiful swans and water stamps and created my own inked background.

This card is fairly easy to make and the instructions can be found below.  The products used can be found on the Heartfelt Creations blog, along with more ideas and inspiration from the design team.




Card Size :    11 1/2cm x 11 1/2cm (4 1/2" x 4 1/2")
Instructions:
Create a card blank using white card.  Cut a piece of white card to measure 10 1/2cm x 10 1/2cm 
(4" x 4").  Using stencil tape, create a narrow edged frame on your card. Using the ink dusters, gently add colour to the card. Begin with the pink, then add blue to the lower half.  Add black ink to the water stamp and stamp several times on the lower half - any gaps I filled in using a Promarker pen. Remove the stencil tape carefully.  Using a black Promarker (with a fine nib) and a piece of spare card, create a frame around your work. Cut another piece of white card to cover the card front.  Use the ruler to create a pierced edge.  Adhere to the card using foam pads. Stamp the swans onto white card using black ink and heat emboss with clear powder. Die cut using the matching dies.  Add some detailing with a grey pen and colour in around the edges.  Add the main image to the card using foam pads and also the swans. Create a loopy bow from silver cord ribbon. Add to the card as shown.

Heartfelt Creations - Holly Berry Christmas

Good Morning All! Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my card yesterday.
As I posted a Christmas card yesterday, thought I would post another one today. This one is very different and has more of a vintage feel, made using traditional colours. 




Card Size :  10 1/2cm x 15 1/2cm (4 1/8" x 6 1/8")
Instructions:
Cover a white card blank with the gold linen effect paper.  Using the largest rounded rectangle and the largest medium rectangle, die cut these shapes from dark red card.  Using the smaller rectangles, die cut these shapes using paper from the collection as shown.  Cut down the smaller rectangles into a banner edge. Adhere these together. Stamp the sentiment onto vellum using green ink and heat emboss using clear embossing powder. Cut down to measure 3 1/2cm wide. ( 1 1/4"). Adhere the banner shapes into place using foam pads, then wrap the vellum around the card securing on the reverse. Add this to the main card using double sided tape.  Stamp the holly onto cream card twice with green inks and die cut using the matching die. Blend in more green ink to cover the leaves.  On the second die cut, cut off the berries, dip into red ink and heat emboss.  Add the holly to the card as shown and complete by adding the berries.

Heartfelt Creations - Merry Christmas

Good Morning All and apologies for my absence last month.
We had a family wedding which took place in Scotland and with all the last bits of prep to do, I had no time for blogging.  Arrived home on Saturday after a lovely 9 days away on the outskirts of Edinburgh.  I will share a few photos soon.
I am a bit behind with blogging my projects for Heartfelt Creations, so will catch up with these over the next week also.  My project on the Heartfelt Creations blog today is a Christmas card, November already!
This card is really easy to make and I hope to make more to send out as my Christmas cards for this year!  The products used can be found on the Heartfelt Creations blog, along with more ideas and inspiration from the new design team.




Card Size :    11cm x 13 1/2cm (4 1/4" x 5 1/4"). 
Instructions:
Create a card blank from white card.  Add the two distress inks colours to the stamp.  Lightly spray with water, then stamp the image onto white card and allow to dry.  Using the pine needles ink and some water, use your water brush to paint on some white card, allow to dry.  Using the Large Rounded Rectangle: 3 1/2" x 4 1/2", die cut the festive notes background. Using the  Large Rounded Rectangle: 3 3/4" x 4 3/4", die cut a mat from the green painted paper.  Adhere these together using double sided tape.  Stamp the sentiment onto a separate piece of the same green paper and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Die cut using the middle sized Heirloom Ornament Die. Create a loopy bow from bright gold twine on the bow maker, add a strip of cord around the top of the card as shown and secure.  Add the ornament using foam pads, adhering the end of the cord behind.  Add the bow using hot glue.  Cut a mat from dark red card and round the corners using a punch - mine measured 10cm x 12 1/2cm (4" x 5"). Adhere together using foam pads.  Add to the card blank using double sided tape to complete.

Heartfelt Creations - Butterfly Dreams

Good Afternoon All! Hope you are all enjoying this lovely sunshine?
This is my card created for Heartfelt Creations this week, mainly using the paper from the collection.  I love the butterflies and had this corner piece of paper left over and couldn't just throw it away, so came up with this card!  The instructions are below.



Card Size :   13cm x 15cm (5" x 5 7/8"). 
Instructions:
Create a card blank from white card. Select the paper shown from the collection and cut to size - mine measured 12cm x 14cm (4 3/4" x 5 1/2").  Choose a section of paper and begin to die cut the hexagonal shapes - die cut them next to each other so the pattern can be pieced together. Arrange and adhere the pieces to the paper using double sided tape on some and foam pads on others.  Trim off any pieces that overlap the edges.  Mat onto some black and then yellow card.  Adhere this to the main card blank.  Cut the sentiment from the paper collection, trim and mat onto black card.  Adhere to the card using foam pads.  Die cut the butterflies from yellow and black card, adhere in the centre with glue and add the gems.  Adhere to the card to complete.

Sunny Day Out At Formby - 21.06.2014

Whilst we were having some beautiful sunshine, we packed the car with a picnic, flip flips, sun hats, bucket and spade and set off to Formby beach.  It's about 40 miles for us, so not far really and enjoyed a lovely day out.  This beach has sand dunes along it which the children love to play hide and seek in, although my daughter was easily spotted in her bright outfit!





We collected some shells, and made sandcastles.







Thanks for visiting me today, will be back later with my card for Heartfelt Creations this week.

Heartfelt Creations - Thank You Gift Box

Good Afternoon! It's Wednesday, so I have my design team project to share with you all today and it's not a card! I recently found this quick tutorial on how to make this box and I am really pleased with how it turned out - very sturdy too! It would also be good as a Xmas gift project!  I will be having a catch up with your lovely blogs later as I have had a problem with my reading list on blogger - it has just been fixed!



Instructions:
Create the box by using this this tutorial.  Score all your lines then using dark red ink, stamp the Arianna vine over the cardstock.  Next stamp the flourishes in pink ink.  Allow to dry or heat set.  Using the ticket die, die cut your handle shape - keep these pieces.  Add glue/tape to form your box. Create a panel from dark red card to go around the centre by using the same score lines in the tutorial, cut to size and glue in place. Stamp the sentiment with dark red ink onto white card and heat emboss with clear powder.  Die cut using a circle die. Add the red ink around the edges and heat emboss.  Die cut a lace flower from pink card. Glue the sentiment and lace flower together, add to the box using foam pads. Tie ribbon around the handle.  Punch a hole through the tickets, thread onto the twine, form a triple bow and tie around the handle to complete.

Heartfelt Creations - Mahogany Blooms

Good Morning All!
Today I have another card featuring The Arianna Blooms Collection and it's another yellow card. I don't usually pick yellow as a main colour, but this paper was so pretty, that I used it for my colour combination.
This card also has a story. When I started to design this card, I added ink around the edges of  the paper and heat embossed it, then took a quick photo for the Heartfelt Creations Facebook Page to show work in progress.  When the post went live, I realised that I had photographed the paper upside down, the bird gave it away! When I went to stick down the paper, guess what? I even manged to stick it down upside down, luckily I noticed and managed to remove it, turn the card blank inside out and start again.  Then I cut another piece of the same paper to hide the mess left behind inside.  Got there eventually!







Card Size :   10 1/2cm x 14 1/2cm (4 1/8" x 5 6/8")
Instructions:
Create a card blank from cream card.  Select the paper shown from the paper collection and trim to measure 10cm x 14cm (4" x 5 1/2").  Add the dark red ink to the edges and emboss with clear powder. Add to the card blank using double sided tape. Stamp the sentiment with dark red ink onto cream card and heat embosss with clear powder.  Die cut using the fancy tag die shown.  Trim off the right side of the tag and add to the card using foam pads. Stamp the blooms with the aged mahogany ink and die cut using the matching die.  Select the smallest 3 blooms, blend some of the dark red ink onto the flowers and shape them. Die cut 3 centres from yellow card, shape and add to the flowers. Add some black microbeads to the centre, then add them to the card to complete.

A bright yellow and poppy inspired card to share today.  The flower cuts beautifully and I wanted the flower to really 'pop' off the card, so kept it very simple.  Hope you all like it!  

Card Size :   12 1/2cm x 12 1/2cm (5" x 5").
Instructions:
Create a card blank from cream card.  Using the Versamark watermark ink, stamp the swirl stamp around the edge of the yellow paper.  Heat emboss using clear powder.  Add the same ink to the edges and emboss with clear powder once more. Add to the card blank using double sided tape. Die cut two large and one medium blooms from red cardstock and two centres from black card. Shape and create the blooms, add the centres and add some black microbeads to the centres. Stamp the sentiment with black ink onto cream card and heat embosss with clear powder.  Die cut using the tag die. Wrap the twine around the card, thread on the tag and secure on the reverse. Add the flower to the centre to complete.

Heartfelt Creations - Country Bicycle

Good Morning All! Hope you have all had a lovely weekend!
Last week on the Heartfelt Creations Blog, I had 2 cards published so today, here is the second card.
I found the background tutorial on the Scor-Pal blog and thought I'd give it a try. A bit different to my usual style, but very pleased with the result.



Card Size : 12cm x 12cm (4 3/4" x 4 3/4")
Instructions:
Create the background card by using this tutorial.  Cut down the card to measure 11cm x 11cm  (4 1/4" x 4 1/4"). Stamp the bicycle directly onto the card using the brown ink.  Stamp two more wheels using the sentiments stamp and hand cut out on the inner wheel rim.  Adhere into place using foam pads. Using the leaf stamps, stamp along the two edges using 3 shades of green ink.  Add green ink around all the edges and heat emboss using clear powder.  Adhere to the card front.  Using some pale pink/lilac paper from the collection, die cut the tiny flowers and mould into shape. Adhere into place, adding pearls to the centres.  Add some green inks onto white card and die cut using the leaf swirl die.  Add the leaves as shown to complete.
