Introducing Heartfelt Creations Peacock Paisley Collection

Monday, March 16th, 2015

Happy Monday, today I wanted to share the new Heartfelt Creations spring collection with you! It is called Peacock Paisley and is packed full of beautiful colors and images! In my video below I show the whole collection, the colors are bright and cheerful. They also have changed their packaging since the last time I received a collection, and let me tell you the packaging is fantastic!

I really love the stamp and die combos that they have, they give the flowers so much depth and interest, I decided to make a quick card this week using the Delightful Daisy stamp and die set as well as the 12 x 12 paper collection. One of the great features of Heartfelt Creations paper is all of the options they include. They have card fronts, sentiments, 6″ x 6″ squares, full page layout pages with places for pictures as well as full sheets of patterned paper, there is something for every one and every skill level!

IMG_1039

I started by picking one of the images that I liked, I cut it a little smaller than 6″ x 6″ because I wanted some of the card stock base that I used to show. The base is just a 12″ x 6″ piece of coordinating card stock scored at 6″. Next using Tim Holtz distress ink in Rusty Hinge I stamped the flowers from the Delightful Daisy stamp set. Then I used the Delightful Daisy die set to cut out the flowers. I used a burnishing tool to shape the flowers, you can shape the flowers either way, for the petals to curve in or out, in this instance I wanted the petals to curve out, I demonstrated that in the video above. To add extra interest to the flowers I inked the edges after they were cut. I used glue dots and adhered the flower layers together, then I used the glue dots and some micro beads that I had from my stash to enhance the centers of the flowers.

I also used one of the sentiments from the paper collection, I bordered it with a piece of the patterned paper, I inked the edges of the patterned paper with the rusty hinge as well. Next I assembled my card, I adhered the card front image to the card stock base, next I added the flowers that I made over the flowers that were on the card front image. I used pop dots to adhere the sentiment, finally I added some jewels from my stash. Here is a look at the finished card.

Here is a list of the products that I used that are available on the Cut at Home website:

HCDP1-252 – Heartfelt Creations Peacock Paisley 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
HCPC-3656 – Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisy Stamp Set
HCD1-760 – Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisy Die Set
TIM27157 – Tim Holtz Distress Ink Rusty Hinge

I also used the following items from my stash: yellow card stock, micro beads, glue dots and gems.

I hope that you liked the easy to make card, the possibilities are endless with this collection! Until next week…

Thanks and Happy Scrappin,

Cardmaking with Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms

Friday, March 13th, 2015

Karen N here sharing a couple cards I made with Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms.  Oh my, can I just start by saying is paper is absolutely beautiful!?  Truly lovely!

In both of my cards today, I used this beautiful paper along with a stamp from the Heartfelt Creations Leafy Branch set.  In this first card, I stamped the little tree on a piece of the pink bloom paper and then cut it with my Big Shot using the largest label in Spellbinders Labels 42.  (Stamping first helps to make sure the stamp is centered properly.)  For this super detailed die, the Sizzix Precision Base Plate really makes a huge difference!  If you don’t have one yet, run over to the Cut@Home store to pick one up.  You will not regret it!  I then stamped the flowers from Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms with some CTMH Lagoon ink.  I cut them using the Heartfelt Creations Leafy Branch die set.  I matted it on a green flower sheet and added some jute string and a button…..and voila!

Next, I cut a card front from a pattern piece in the Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms 12 x 12 paper pad.  I cut a green die-cut using the next size down in the Spellbinders Labels 42.   I stamped the same tree from the Heartfelt Creations Leafy Branch set in Stampin’ Up Espresso and cut it with the Heartfelt Creations Leafy Branch die set.  I added the other three flowers (from the previous card cut along with some lace and ribbon….and voila!

Linen Pocket Board with Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

I hope that you like my fun project today — a linen pocket board featuring the beautiful Butterfly Medley Collection stamps and dies by Heartfelt Creations.  Here’s a look at the finished project –

pocket board

I began my project with the pre-finished linen pocket board.  It is one of those versatile things that you come across once in a while that has so many possibilities.  It was perfect paired with the Butterfly Medley Collection.

I began by making the flowers.   Here I wanted to do something a little different, and I achieved it by using deli paper to make the flowers.  I used the Botanical Rose die from the Butterfly Medley Collection.  One single die cuts five different sizes of flower layers.  You can cut the deli paper the same as any other, keeping in mind that it is quite thin.  I always cut at least four layers together — you could cut more or less depending on what your die cutting machine tolerates.   You’ll need to cut the Botanical Rose blooms six times for just one flower.

To assemble the flower, begin with the largest of the petal layers.  Using glue, attach the layers, one at a time, until you’ve got six.  Be sure to stagger the petals in each flower.  Once you’ve attached six of the largest petal sets, allow the flower to dry a little before continuing.    Then you’ll move on and do the same thing for the next two largest sets of petals.  For the top two layers, you’ll only add four petal sets of each size.  Allow each layer to dry fully before moving on to the next.  Make sure the glue on the entire flower is dry before moving on to the next step.

To give the flowers dimension, I scrunched and wrinkled and wadded up the flower.  Deli paper has an interesting texture, and it is very responsive to these very basic attempts to give dimension.  Once I was happy with the appearance, I added a little color to the flower sets by sponging them with Prima chalk edgers.  Because the blue that I had was a little to bright for the frame, I edged them the second time with a grayed brown to tone down the bright blue.  I added some yellow in the center of the flowers, and a rhinestone in each center.    That’s it . . . the flowers are done.  I stamped some of the leaves on green cardstock, and cut them with the corresponding die.  Done!  Here is a close-up of the flowers —

The next step was the butterflies.  These were super easy.  Of course you could stamp and color the butterflies, but I just didn’t have time to do that for this project.  Instead I selected a peacock feather glitter paper — all of the bling and the color was built right in.  I used the various dies that are a part of the Butterfly Medley Collection to cut a variety of sizes and shapes of butterflies.  To add dimension to them, I simply folded the wings up on either side of the flat body.  Too simple!  I added some rhinestones to each butterfly to complete the appearance.  Here’s a close-up of the butterflies and of the paper that I used to cut them.

I wanted to create some tags for the pockets, and so I turned to the beautiful papers that are a part of the Butterfly Medley Collection and some Graphic 45 tags.  I simply covered the Graphic 45 tags with one of the papers in the Heartfelt Creations paper.  I fussy cut a set of three blue flowers for each of the tags, and attached it using Angel Crafts 1/4″ tape.  I edged each of the tags with my Prima chalk edgers — both the blue and the grayed brown.  Easy peasy!  Here’s a close-up of the tags —

tag

Assembly was super easy too.  I placed the tags in the pockets.  The butterflies were attached using a dimensional adhesive.  I cut a corner of lace and tucked it into the lower pocket (it looked best when tacked down in a few strategic places).  I placed the three deli paper flowers and leaves on the doily piece along with a blue lace ribbon bow.  All were attached with Angel Crafts adhesive.  I thought the little watering can made a good companion piece.  I added a blue lace/burlap blow and a butterfly to tie it in.  I love how quickly that this came together.  Please see the short video for additional information on the Butterfly Medley Collection and my project today.

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.

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.
