Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms Pretty All Occasion Card

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Karen N here!  Today, I created a video showing you how I made a pretty, yet quick and easy, all occasion card made with the gorgeous Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms collection.  This video is a little longer than my usual videos, but I wanted to show the process from beginning to end.  Without further ado, here’s my video!

And here’s a picture of my card.

cah-birdsbloomKN

 

This is one of my favorite sketches to use.  The white panel in the middle could be a stamp or a large sentiment….or in this case a swirly die (sorry, not sure of the brand name as I have had this die forever!)  The dimensions of the panels are:

Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms (pattern) paper: 2″ x 3-1/2″  (cut two)

Brown cardstock: 2-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ (cut two)

Pink cardstock:  2-1/2″ x 4″ (cut two)

White cardstock:  5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (fold in half for card base) and 2-1/4″ x 3″ (cut one for center)

Brown cardstock:  2-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ (cut one for center)

After gluing the swirl down on the white, I wrapped twine around it before adhering it to the brown cardstock.

Then, I had SO much fun with my NEW Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  This kit has everything you need to shape flowers.  It comes with the foam pad, and various stylus tips.  I stamped the flowers from Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Stamps with pink ink and the leaves with green ink.  I cut them with the Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Die.  Note that I used my scissors to cut the petals on the flower apart.  I shaped the flowers and leaves and glued them together and added some glossy accents and prills to the center.  Finally I added some pearls as embellishments.  It’s a quick and easy card anyone would love to receive (in my humble opinion).

Thanks for stopping by today.  Below is my supplies list.

Craftily yours,

Karen

3D Card using Heartfelt Creations Cascading Fuchsia

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! Today I’m making a 3D card using the new beautiful Cascading Fuchsia collection from Heartfelt Creations!

137198_SUPER__000_20150424_1        2015-06-02 18.44.542015-06-02 18.45.09         2015-06-02 18.44.50

For my card base, I have used a Silhouette die…cut from my Cameo, using white cardstock. I then cut out a backing for my card, and a frame for the front of my card using the Heartfelt Creations Cascading Fuchsia 12×12 paper pad. This paper is stunning. It comes with all you expect from Heartfelt Creations. It has many cut a parts, tags, card-front’s, and much more. I cut a piece of white cardstock, that will wrap around my card, giving it a closure. I attached the wrap around white paper, then added a magnet before adding my patterned paper. I cut a piece of the patterned paper for the background of my card, the front & back of my card, the inside, and a frame for the inside. Setting my card base aside, I stamped the Cascading Fuchsia Cling Stamp set, stamping each flower two times. There are three different sizes in this stamp set. I stamped them with Momento London Fog Ink. I then used my Sizzix Big Shot Machine, along with the Cascading Fuchsia Die, and cut out all my pieces. Using my Tim Holtz Distress Markers (colors listed below) I colored in my flowers, leaves & stamens.

2015-04-07 13.38.272015-04-07 13.38.19Snapshot 1 (6-2-2015 9-39 PM)

I then used my Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit (a must have), and shaped all my flowers and leaves, giving them a very dimensional look. You can achieve this by using the embossing mat that is included, and one of the larger nibs that is also included. Then run your stylus nib on the back side of the flower and the leaves in a circular motion. This will curl up your flower petals, giving a stunning 3 dimensional look.

Snapshot 2 (6-2-2015 9-40 PM)

I glued together my flowers using a tiny bit of wet glue, and facing my flower stamp side up. I attached the two flowers on top of each other, alternating the petals. Then I added my leaf to the top, stamp side down. Completed it by adding the stamen to the center of my flower.

Snapshot 3 (6-2-2015 9-41 PM)

Using the same collection, I added a mat piece to the front of my card box using Angel Craft Tape. I distressed it first in Tim Holtz Distress Ink Dusty Concord. I added a mat to the back & also the side. Adding a magnet to keep it closed. I also added a tiny piece of ribbon that I folded in half, and sandwiched between my card & patterned paper, which will give it a handle to open the card with.

Using the Heartfelt Creations Fuchsia Cluster, and Fuchsia Spray Cling Stamp Sets, I stamped several of them on white cardstock, and colored in with my Tim Holtz Markers again, then fussy-cut them out.

To finish off my card, since all my patterned paper mats were down, I added the 3D flowers and the leaves to the inside of my card. I then cut out a 2×3 cut apart from the collection and added that to the inside of my card with my sentiment on it.

To the front of my card, I cut the beautiful Decorative Oval Die from the collection. This die has quickly become one of my favorite dies.

I finished off the front with pearls. I do have a process video showing how I made this card. If you’re interested in seeing that, please click on the video below. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project!

Grunged Up Father’s Day Card with Heartfelt Creations All Geared Up

Friday, May 29th, 2015

Karen N here today sharing a grungy father’s day card I made using the Heartfelt Creations All Geared Up Collection.  This paper is perfect for some of those masculine projects….  Super fun papers, stamps and dies.

Here’s the card I made, both inside and out:

CAH_All1CAH_All2

To make this card, I stamped the gear vase from Heartfelt Creations Plates and Gears stamps onto white cardstock and colored it up with my Copic markers.  It was too white against the background, so I distressed it all over with Distress Ink in Antique Linen and then added some extra touches with Walnut Stain and Aged Mahogany.  The image is stamped with my favorite ink, Spellbinders Celebra’tions Berry Black.   I cut a 4×5.5 inch card base from one of the patterned papers and added part of a die cut Spellbinders Exquisite Circles from the teal colored patterned paper.  After adhering the circle, I distressed the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink.  I then wrapped some 3 Girl JAM grey ribbon and a Tim Holtz Idea-ology border using some Angel Craft Tape in the 1/2″ size.  This tape is fabulous for adhering down ribbon.  It’s sticky enough to stick the ribbon but not gooey so that it doesn’t come through even the thinnest of ribbons.  It’s like MAGIC!

I cut a couple gears from Heartfelt Creations All Geared Up Dies.  These gears cut SO beautifully with the Big Shot and a Sizzix Precision Base Plate.  It’s also like MAGIC for cutting very intricate dies!  I adhered the red one to the card base and used some pop tape to add the image.  I then added some water to the brown-ish one to make the ends curl up slightly for some dimension and added it with a glue dot on top of the image.  The final touch was to spritz the whole card with water (love that effect with distress inks) and to add some sequins and a pearl.

Here’s a video showing the whole process:

The inside is one of the sentiments from the Plates and Gears Stamps, and I cut a 4×5.25″ white card stock for the inside (grunged up, of course).  I added an extra gear to the inside just to pull it all together.

Thanks for stopping by today!  My supply list is below.

Craftily yours,

Karen

Memorial Day Card featuring Heartfelt Creations Everyday Heroes collection

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Today I want to share a Memorial Day card that I made using some of the stamps and the dies from the Heartfelt Creations Everyday Heroes collection.  I love that this set can be used for almost any occasion, and especially that it can be used to thank our heroes.  This is the card —

front   back

The card looks much more difficult than it really is.  I began with a Sizzix die set — the Hearts Step-Ups card designed by Stephanie Barnard.  I used this to cut the base.  When planning a card like this, I often do a “draft” or “sample” card to see how things will lay out.  So my first step card was cut out of blue cardstock.  I used images from three different stamp sets in the Everyday Heroes collection — Everyday Hero Newsprint, You Inspire Me, and My Hero.  I stamped all three on scrap paper.

I began planning the card by fussy cutting all of the words that I wanted to use from the stamped images.  I didn’t want to use “you stand the test of time”, so I set that part aside.  I cut a flag from kraft paper and from white, and added the “You Inspire Me” message to that.  I cut two cards from kraft paper to fit on the step side of the card — one 4″ x 2.75″, that would stand behind and contain the words “You Inspire Me . . . . with honor, integrity and compassion”.  The second card was 2.75″ x 2.5″, and I added the words “You are my Hero” to that one.   I did experiment with a little taller card in the front (2.75″ x 2.75″), but that was too tall.  I attached all of this with a removable adhesive so that I could reposition the pieces until I found a layout that I liked.

I had some holographic patriotic stars that I purchased, and I thought they would add a little patriotic flair to the card.  I tried using them as they were, but quickly found they were just too big.  I used a Lawn Fawn die set, “Puffy Star Stackables” to cut the stars a little smaller.  Even though the pre-made stars were a heavy-weight plastic, I was able to cut them with the dies, although there were a couple of places where I needed to trim the star out.   I kept both the smaller star and the outline star that it created, because I knew that both would be useable at some point.

I added three of the smaller stars to the solid portion of the step card.  They were staggered to avoid any overlapping, etc.  I wanted to place the circle die-cut, “We Will Always Remember”, in that area but first needed to build it up a little to give it more dimension.  I could have done this with dimensional adhesive, but instead decided to cut 4 more of the circles from chipboard and glue them together with the stamped version.  This created a very solid image for that area.  I experimented with a center flag in the circle, but thought it just detracted from the already busy card.

The last area to decorate was the bottom of the step card.  I added another flag — “Celebrating You” — which fit perfectly with the theme for the card.  Similar to what I did above, I cut a flag from white cardstock and one from kraft cardstock, added the sentiment and then attached the two together.  I added it to the base of the card, at a slight angle.  The last element I added was the boots.  I placed one of the star outlines in the area where the boots would be attached.   I attached the boots, being careful to cover the heart that was a part of the step card design.  I added a smaller outline star on top of the boots as a final step.

I did all of this in draft version, trying out various placements of the pieces until I was satisfied with the result.  When I was satisfied, it was time to create the final card.  First, I cut the step card from a kraft cardstock with gold polka dots.  I re-stamped all of the images that I wanted to use, this time with VersaFine black onyx ink.  I also heat embossed the images using Ranger’s Super Fine Clear embossing powder.  I re-cut the flag pieces, etc. but kept them in plain kraft paper because I didn’t want too much gold on the card.  I reassembled the card, this time with Angel Craft 1/4″ adhesive.  I chose to rest the “you inspire me” and “my hero” cards against the hearts on the step base, but you could also choose to attach them to the hearts (this may be preferable if mailing the card, etc.).  To finish the card, I cut a piece of white cardstock just a little smaller than the card back.  This is to allow a space for a personal message, etc.  I attached it to the back with the Angel Craft adhesive tape.  This card took a little time, but was all very easy.  Please see the short video for further information on how I planned and assembled it.

Here are two more views of the card (from the side and from the top)

side   above

I just love the versatility of the Everyday Heroes collection.  Of course you could use a similar design to this one with almost any of the stamp collages in the collection to create a wonderful Fathers’ Day card.  I also like that the Hearts Step-Up card is useable for many different occasions (you could cut or fold down the hearts if you don’t want them to be seen).

Sympathy Cards with Heartfelt Creations Peacock Paisley

Friday, May 22nd, 2015

Karen N here today sharing with you some sympathy cards that I made using the Heartfelt Creations Peacock Paisley paper. I lost a very important person in my life last weekend, and I decided to make sympathy cards for the family. As with all of the Heartfelt Creations line, it’s simply gorgeous.

I’d only received a sample of this paper, so I decided to challenge myself and make all four cards using two sheets of 12 x 12 paper.  In the video below, you will see what I had left along with more details about the cards I made:

I also used some white cardstock and stamped and cut one pass of the Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisy stamps and dies.  In each case, I inked them with Tim Holtz Distress Ink then watered them a little to make the paper more pliable and to blend the ink a little.  I curled the edges just slightly to make them more dimensional.

In this first card, I inked a couple of the daisies with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Dried Marigold. (The centers of all of my flowers are prills.)  I fussy cut a couple tags from the Peacock Paisley collection and then added some ribbon and lace:

CAH_Sympathy1

This second card has more of the daisy, this time inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire.  I love the prettiness added by using part or all of a simple doily.  The leaf in the background is diecut and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Cracked Pistachio.  The little ATC and ticket are part of the Peacock Paisley collection.

CAH_Sympathy2

Next up is another card with a doily.  This time I used that beautiful blue paper from Peacock Paisley and cut a Spellbinders Decorative Labels 41.  That pretty intricate die cuts so easily using the Sizzix Precision Base Plate and the Big Shot.  If you don’t have one of these cool plates yet, get one!  You’ll love it!  The ink on this daisy is Tim Holtz Distress Ink Mustard Seed.  Remember – ALL of these fun flowers were just one pass!

CAH_sympathy3

 

On this final card, I went a little more CAS.  I stamped an image from a Unity Stamp onto one of the panels from the Peacock Paisley paper and colored it with my Copics.  I was a little worried about the ink bleeding when I added some shading, but it handled it pretty well.

CAH_sympathy4

Well, that’s it for me today.  Hope you all have a lovely Memorial Day weekend.  Thanks for stopping by to check out my cards!
