Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit from Heartfelt Creations

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

Hello! Thanks for stopping by! I’m excited to share a new product with you today.

From Heartfelt Creations comes the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Create easy, stunning three dimensional flowers for your next project! The stylus is magnetized so the nibs stay securely in place and change out easily.

DSCF7012 DSCF7013

This new kit comes with an embossing mat, piercing mat, interchangeable multi-sized stylus balls, paper curler, and a paper piercer. This is a really neat tool that can be used to make very beautiful, dimensional flowers. I show you in a step by step tutorial (see video below) how to achieve a beautiful flower in a very short amount of time.

I have also used the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms stamp & die set. This is a beautiful flower set.

DSCF7017

I first stamped my flowers, using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Worn Lipstick. I then used the matching die, and ran it through my Sizzix Big Shot machine, making no fussy cutting necessary. I have also used the new cutting pads by Sizzix that will be coming in March. 

DSCF7015 DSCF7016 These come in mint, grape and watermelon!!

I used the Spectrum Noir pencils to quickly color my flowers. Then I used my stylus tool on these flowers.

DSCF7014

You begin with the stamp side face down. Run your stylus tool over each petal in a circular motion, which will then break up the fibers in the paper, giving it a curled, dimensional look. After completing all the petals, you then want to turn over your flower, stamp side up, and run your stylus in a circular motion in the middle of the flower. This will then form your flower. It is that simple. After doing that with all my flowers, I then began to adhere them with a little hot glue in the middle of the flower, and alternating the flowers as I go. I made three different sized flowers.

DSCF7003DSCF7004DSCF7010

I then switched out my nib, replacing it with the piercing tool. Using the piercing mat, I was able to put a hole in the middle of the flower, and add my brad.

I then added these beautiful, handmade flowers to a Valentine box that I cut using my Silhouette Cameo (see design #’s below).

Becuase of having the right tools, I was able to put this project together very quickly, and easily. I hope you give these a try.

DSCF7008 DSCF7007

You can see just how dimensional these flowers are! I really hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project. If you’d like to watch the process of this…please click on the video below.

Cottage Cutz Holiday Lights card

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Lights are so a part of the Holiday celebration, you see them on homes, parks and businesses around the World.  It’s no wonder that I absolutely adored this die from the moment I saw it.

P1140649

I incorporated Cottage Cutz Holiday Lights die into my Christmas card today.  I wanted to share how you could take one focal panel from a paper collection and make your card as I’ve shown here.  So many collections including Heartfelt Creations (which today’s decorative paper comes from) have cut aparts or decorative elements on their papers that could easily be cut to fit the front of a card base.  Mine today is a standard A2 sized card 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, using white for the card itself and accenting with magenta ink around the edges.

P1140657

This die comes with little bulbs you can cut from different colored papers but I wanted to see how it would work to cut one strand from white cardstock and use my pens to color them to match my color scheme.  Worked great although I had a few hiccups along the way, I left them in the video so you can say ‘looks like something I’d do’ and I also showed the quick fixes to rectify the errors.  That’s so much of what paper crafting is all about, we all make mistakes but it’s often very easy to fix the boo boo and no one is the wiser.  I pulled out my Glitter Snow again, I just love this stuff for giving that snowy look to my projects.

P1140655

Today’s video will also show you a slick trick for getting your glitter onto your script, and most important having it stay.  I used an older die from the Spellbinders Nestabilites line called Classic Scalloped Squares for my  sentiment to rest on and the words from Tim Holtz Holiday Words die set.  I hope you’ll join me below on the video as I walk you through the whole process of creating this card.  Directly below you’ll find the supply  list from the store.

Thanks everyone,

Patti

My Favorite Nut!

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

I’ve said it many times before but you won’t be surprised to hear it again.  Masculine cards or father’s day cards are hard to come up with ideas for!  At least for me that is.  So I’m always super excited when I find a new collection geared toward the men in my life.

Geared Up-010

Let me introduce you to Heartfelt Creations newest collection, All Geared Up!  Perfect for those pesky men who like a no-frills, no-bling and Heaven forbid, no-flower card!  Heartfelt Creations has added just the right touch of grunge and manliness to this paper collection to speak to the heart of just about all the men on my card making list!  I love the Grunged up backgrounds and stamps that don’t gush and grin but just talk to the Man!

Geared Up-004

I have a very dear friend whose birthday is next month and he’s a ‘do it yourselfer’ so this is going to be perfect for him.  I used a scrap of a cardboard box lid to make my gears.  I use a Big Shot from Sizzix and had absolutely no problem cutting the cardboard with it.  I did add a couple of shims to give a little more pressure through the layers.  Adding some Gathered Twig and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks by Tim Holtz gives the gears that rusty, worn look.  I love them!

Geared Up-007

I used some of the decorative papers from the collection to stamp the screw and bots on and then fussy cut them out to place along side my sentiment and popped up as an accent on the front of my card.  The stamp comes complete with the sentiment that’s on the front of my card along with the images of the screw and bolts.  I didn’t want to stamp them together so I carefully cut the images away from the printed verbiage making 3 stamps instead of 1.  Now don’t gasp and hold your breath! You really can do this, just be careful where you cut and try not to cut at an angle, just straight up and down.

Come join me on the video, I have more tips and ideas to share with you, a fast-forwarded put it together of the card process and more still photos to inspire you to make cards for those Guys in your life!  I love this collection, it’s going to be one of my favorites I’m sure!  All supplies are listed below.

Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms Cards

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Today I have the pleasure of sharing the Arianna Blooms die & stamp set by Heartfelt Creations. This is a beautiful set to work with. I love the fact that out of one stamp, you can get so many different looks.

Arianna Blooms pics 004                       Arianna Blooms pics 003

The quality of Heartfelt Creations is impressive. Their stamps give you such a great impression each and every time. They are mounted on cling foam, which can be used on an acrylic block. I have even used them without a block, and still get a great impression. With the matching die, there is no fussy cutting necessary. They cut out perfect each and every time, saving you time.

The possibilities are endless with a stamp like this. You can stamp any color you’d like, then color them with pencils, copic markers, ink, watercolor pencils, whatever you’d like….even spray them with your favorite color mists.

What I like to do, once I’ve stamped and cut them out, is add some dimension to them. A way to achieve that is by lightly spraying with water. You want to break the fibers of the paper by using a stylus & rubbing the petals in a circular motion, then dragging down the petal toward the middle. Once you’ve done that with each petal, flip it right side up, and make a circular motion in the center of the petal…this will give it dimension. Adhere them largest to smallest, using hot glue, or wet glue alternating the petals each time. You can add the stamen that come in this set, or a rhinestone, or pearl…what ever you’d like. Another method is by bending each petal (about 4 at a time) around a pencil, or paint brush, giving them a curve. For a dimensional flower, you can add about 4-5 of them on top of each other. Use 3-4 of the medium sized petals to form a bud for the center of your flower. After cupping the first one together, add that to the second one, then the third, then the fourth. That will form your “bud”. Add that into your larger petals. That Is what I did to make the large white flower on my card. In my video, I show how I achieved this.

To make the card, I used an 8 1/2 x 7 1/2″ sized paper. On the 7 1/2″ side, I scored it at 3 3/4″, which will fit into a business sized envelope. I added two mats that I cut from the Cameo, using Heidi Swapp’s “Vintage Chic” paper collection, first distressing the edges. I added two different flowers, using the Arianna Blooms set, along with lace, a doily, leaves cut from the Silhouette Cameo, and a few flourishes. I added 3 pink flowers, to give it some color. Along the lace, I added pearls. This card turned out beautiful, because they focus on the two flowers made from the Arianna Blooms stamp set. My card will need to be hand delivered, or sent in a bubble envelope, since it is so dimensional.

Heartfelt Creations Tag using Spectrum Noir!

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I’m loving the weather we are having lately! We’ve had such an unusually warm October this year, that I’m glad it’s finally cooling down. It’s finally feeling like fall…which leads me to my project I have to share with you today. I made a fall tag, using Heartfelt Creations, and Spectrum Noir colored pencils.

Cut At Home Tag 002                            Cut At Home Tag 001

I had colored all my images using Spectrum Noir colored pencils. This was my first time using these pencils, and I was so impressed with how easy they colored, and how easy I was able to get some very pretty shading.

Cut At Home Tag 008                Cut At Home Tag 009

I had stamped the Sunflower Bouquet stamp, using Chestnut roan ink. I also stamped the Classic Sunflower, and used the Die to cut it out.

Cut At Home Tag 012                         Cut At Home Tag 011 Cut At Home Tag 016 Cut At Home Tag 013 Cut At Home Tag 006

I cut two tags from the Silhouette, using Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower 12×12 paper collection.  I inked all my flowers, papers, and images with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Vintage photo. To my tag, I added a ticket that I cut from the paper collection, along with some satin ribbon, and a little jute twine. I added a few pearls as well. This tag made a cute embellishment for a small gift bag. I used a brown paper bag, after adding a few treats, I folded over the top a couple of time, added a staple to keep it shut, and added my tag to the front. It was a perfect addition to dress up this little bag.
