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.

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.

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.

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.

Hearts, Hearts Everywhere

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Karen N here from Craftily Yours, sharing a couple projects using Heartfelt Creations Antiquity Paper and Spellbinders Cascading Hearts Card Front Die!

For my first project, I made my hubby a birthday card.  He’s four years older than me, and I’m constantly telling him that he’s “Much, Much Older” – so the vintage-feel to this card is perfect for him.  For the small piece on the right side of the card, I ran it through my Big Shot with the cascading hearts die.  I love the way that it turned out!


For my second project, I decided to scrap a picture of me, my family and my brother and his family with our grandfather at Thanksgiving.  Gramps loved his pie!  In this card, again, I used the cascading hearts die to create the element in the lower left corner.  The shape is cut with Spellbinders Labels 16.  This die is great for creating fun card fronts, but it has so many other uses as well.  It’s super fun!  The flowers are fussy cut from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Wallflower Stash paper.  The title is cut with Sizzix Triplits tag dies.

Techniques in Fussy Cutting

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Karen N here with some fun projects using super fun and trendy fussy cutting techniques.  Last week, I did a card using fussy cutting, and I had so much fun that I thought I’d do a few more!  All of my cards today use Heartfelt Creations Paper and Magnolia Rubber Stamps.

The first card uses Heartfelt Creations {Classic Sunflower Collection} paper and Magnolia {Tilda Scarecrow} stamp.


In fussy cutting this image, I didn’t want to cut all of the super fine detail around her hat.  Instead, I just cut it into a straight line and then took my marker and colored in the outline.  I also cut the feet at the stamp line so that I could cut the “inside the legs” part out.  Finally, the stamp has one of the mittens falling off, but I wanted to attach it back on, so I cut that hand off and taped the mitten in its place.  I colored this image with Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor markers.  The lace and crinkle ribbon are from 3 Girl JAM, and I added some enamel dots.

The second card I made uses Heartfelt Creations {Frosty Blanket} paper and Magnolia {Jingle Bell Rudolph} stamp.


In this card, I didn’t want to cut that small detail in Rudolph’s antlers or the teeny piece of ribbon,  I cut the image without these elements and then stamped the image onto the pattern paper and colored those elements right onto the pattern paper.  I love that the bottom part of Rudolph’s body is hanging off that circle.  I think it adds fun movement to the card.  The snowflake is cut using my Big Shot and the NEW Spellbinders {Snowflake Bliss} dies, and I added some 3 Girl JAM lace and Timeless Twine.

The final card I made uses Heartfelt Creations {Frosty Blanket} paper and Magnolia {A Joyful Tilda} stamp.


In this card, I wanted to keep the little teeny details in her fun curly hair.  I used a very light blue alcohol marker and added a thin shadow outline around the entire image.  Then I cut the image with a small border.  I added some 3 Girl JAM lace and crinkle ribbon, some flowers and some sequins.

Be sure to watch the video to see more about my fussy cutting techniques!

Fun with Fussy Cutting

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

Karen N here sharing a fun card made with Heartfelt Creations {Delicate Asters} paper and Penny Black {Bird Day} stamps.

Crafting for me is a total stress reliever.  I’m sure it is for you too.  One of the things I like to do most is fussy cutting.  There are several ways to fussy cut.  Some people like to leave a little border around their images and some like to have a nice tight cut.  When fussy cutting a super intricate image (like this naughty and adorable cat from Penny Black), I will generally stamp it twice.  One time, I stamp it into the pattern paper that I want to use and one time I stamp the white cardstock that I will color.  Then, I just cut off all the detail and glue it into position.  Here’s the final card:



And here’s a video that shows you how I did this.  In the video, I called it a hedge-hog, but it’s a CAT.  LOL, oops!

Some tips for fussy cutting:

1.  Always turn the paper and not the scissors.  This will give you a smoother cut.

2.  Don’t worry too much about your cuts being perfect.  In the above card, I’d accidentally cut the tail off the third bird from the left.  Since the image was stamped into the background, you can’t even tell!

3. If you accidentally cut a little of the outline off an image you are fussy cutting, draw it back on with a very thin lined black marker.

4.  No one will EVER send you a card back and tell you that your fussy cutting isn’t good enough!  (i.e. have fun with it!)

Craftily yours,




Trending – Fun Owls for Scrapbooking

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Karen N here today sharing with you some cards with an “on-trend” animal that I just adore – the owl!  Cut at Home has all sorts of fantastic owls available, and I’ve included a link to them at the end of this post.  Be sure to check them out.  Today happens to be my 50th Birthday.  I’m super stoked about turning 50 as this is the decade that I’ll retire from work and have MORE time to CRAFT!  The only “bit” of a downer today is that my son is so far away (in the U.S. Army).   BUT it makes me happy that he is chasing his dreams, and I am so proud of him!  Still, I miss him…..I didn’t realize it until I put the post together, but you may see that theme in today’s cards!

Now, onto the fun!  My first two cards today use the Magnolia Tilda Owl stamp.  This owl is SO adorable.


Other ingredients for this card includes the BEAUTIFUL Heartfelt Creations Delicate Asters paper, Spellbinders Labels Four, Spellbinder Nested Lacy Pennants, a button, some twine, Candi dots, and some markers.  Here’s a fun video that shows how I put together this card.

Here’s card number two!



For this card, I also used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Motif paper, Spellbinders Big Scallop Circles, Circle Dies, Shadowpress Debossing FoldersTim Holtz Distress Inks in Rusty Hinge, Walnut Stain, Worn Lipstick and Mowed Lawn, Timeless Twine, markers and a piece of scrap paper from my hoard.  Note the repeating images that was featured as a trend last month!  Love that!

My final card today uses the Cottage Cutz Sylized Owl.  This owl is so stinkin’ adorable!


Recipe for this card includes Tim Holtz Idea-ology Wallflower paper, Tim Holtz Distress Markers, Circle Dies, Unity Stamp Company sentiment, and a doily.

Hope you enjoyed these fun owls.  If you love owls as much as I do, check out the other Ca-Ute owls at Cut at Home by following this LINK!  Eek, so many FUN choices!

Craftily yours,





Spellbinders Labels Forty-One and Forty-Two Card Ideas

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Spellbinders has a large assortment of dies, as you probably already know and their label collection is one of my favorite and I feel the most versatile especially for the Cardmaker.  The dies are always sorted per category and these new Labels Dies are part of the Nestabilities collection.  This means they will nest well within one another to add dimension and pop to your card fronts, layouts, mini albums or whatever you decide to use them for.  I’m going to share three cards and three ideas to get your creative juices flowing.  At the bottom of this post will be the complete list of all the dies and supplies I’ve used from the store.

Labels 41-42

I’ve used the Spellbinders Decorative Accents Labels Forty-Two, Decorative Accents Labels Forty-One and Decorative Elements Labels Forty-One.   At the time of this post these dies are pre-order only, so you’ll want to get your orders in now so that once they hit the store shelves they’ll be shipped out right away to you.

Labels 41-044

This first card measures 5″ square.  I’ve used a combination of pink and white cardstock along with Spellbinders Labels Forty-Two, Decorative Accents dies.  This cuts the large white base and the pink solid in the forefront.  Along with my Sizzix Big Shot I also used the Sizzix Magnetic Plate for Wafer Thin Dies and the Spellbinders Tool ‘n One.  These two items just make your die cutting so much easier.  Oh yes I used Scor-Pal’s No More Shims rubber mat to help even the pressure as I emboss the cut outs.

Labels 41-047

This beautifully intricate accent is cut from the Spellbinders Decorative Accents Labels Forty-One.  You may have to use paper shims as you cut and rotate your plate after each pass until you get all the details cut completely.  But oh my isn’t it worth it? Check out more spellbinders card ideas on!

Labels 41-051

This card base was cut with Spellbinders Labels Forty-Two, as you watch the video I’ll show you exactly how to create this fantastic card base from your die.   The beautiful center is cut using Spellbinders Decorative Elements Labels Forty-One.  See how all these dies compliment one another adding another layer to your card.  This card starts with the standard A2 size card base, 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ but once you cut the decorative shape to the edges your card goes down to about 4 1/4″ square.

Labels 41-056

The last card uses all the dies in the Spellbinders Decorative Accents Labels Forty-One.  I’ll show you how to cut them all at the same time on the video.  You also can see the difference of using one color, like this card, as opposed to the pink and white combination in the first card.  It just depends on the look you want to achieve.  This is the largest card and measures 6″ square.  Any decorative paper on the cards was cut from Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms 12×12 paper collection.  I hope you’ll come follow along on the video, I’ll share lots of ideas and more photos.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
