Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms Handmade Card

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Hello! Today I’m using the new stamp from Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms Collage. This is a beautiful collage stamp, which is part of an entire collection from Heartfelt Creations. The cling stamp is approximately 4 1/4 x 5 1/4, therefore it is a perfect size for your card front.

I used Versa Fine Black ink, and used my Fiskars Stamp press to stamp it on Ranger Water-color paper. If you do not have a large acrylic block, you can actually just stamp it by hand. The image will turn out beautifully. I embossed my image with clear embossing powder, and heat set it.

I wanted to give my image a light background of a pale blue. I choose to use Tim Holtz Broken China Distress Ink, and added a little to an acrylic block. I ran water over my entire image. Using a fairly large paint brush, I added some of the ink to then entire surface, giving it a very soft blue as a background.

I colored my image using Tim Holtz Distress Markers. These have quickly become a favorite of mine. I have listed the colors below.

I cut a card base (sizes listed below) from white cardstock, adding a purple piece of cardstock to the entire front of my card. After trimming my image and distressing the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink, I used Angel Craft Tape to adhere my beautiful image to the front of my card.

Finished off the inside of my card with a purple & white mat which gives me a place for my sentiment. Added a little lace and flowers and this makes for a beautiful all-occasion card to give.

My Anchor from Heartfelt’s Everyday Heroes Collection

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

Today I want to show you more ideas for using the Heartfelt Creations Everyday Heroes Collection.  My focus here is on a single stamp set, “My Anchor” and the anchor die from the Everyday Heroes die set.  I used these to create three very different cards —

vertigo  IMG_6150


My first card, the navy and silver one, features a fun product called “Vertigo” by Imagine Crafts.  Vertigo is a plastic material that comes in different finishes, each giving a different texture or impression.  I used “Rattlesnake” here — this is the one that I think most looks like water.  I thought it would be fun to stamp the image on using Mediterranean Blue Brilliance Ink (you need to use pigment inks with Vertigo).  While the ink was still wet, I added some Ranger Super Fine Clear embossing powder and heat embossed the image to give it a little more sheen.  It is very easy to heat emboss with the Vertigo, you just need to be careful to not get it too hot or it will melt (similar to the burns that you begin to see when you over-emboss paper).  I trimmed the Vertigo close to the stamped image, and cut a blue layer the same size to go behind it.  I cut the base layer 4.25″ x 5.5″ from blue cardstock, and a second layer 4″ x 5.25″ from a silver hammered cardstock.  I used the anchor die in the Everyday Heroes die set to cut an anchor from the hammered silver cardstock.  I attached all of the pieces with Angel Craft 1/4″ adhesive.  I added a little embellishment at the bottom by tying three half-hitch knots and staggering them at the bottom of the stamped image.  Very easy, but the Vertigo adds a fun new dimension.


My second card is stamped using Hero Arts Ombre Ink in Pool to Navy.  This is a fun ink to use, although it takes just a little practice to achieve a nice ombre effect.  (My video shows the special techniques you’ll want to use with this ink.)  This is probably the simplest of the three cards in that it is just the stamped image layered on two colors of cardstock, but I like the cool ombre look.  Also, I stamped the image on a textured cardstock, and I like how the cardstock texture adds a little interest to the  card too.  I finished the card by adding one half-hitch knot at the bottom.  The twine that I use here is by Maya Road.  It is thicker than most bakers twines, and so only one or two layers is sufficient to make a statement on a card.  The color I used is “blue corn”, and I think it is a good match for the ombre ink.


My last card uses some vintage techniques.  I stamped the image twice on ivory cardstock using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Once the ink dried thoroughly, I took one of the stamped images and trimmed it close to the lettering, and I fussy cut the ship from the other.  I used the anchor die from the die set to also cut the anchor from the second image.  I colored the ship and the anchor using Antique Linen Distress Ink.  I added a few shadows and details to both images using Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I used a foam pad and just a little of my Broken China Distress Ink to add some blue to the ocean areas of the card (I tried just leaving it cream/brown, but I didn’t like the look).  I really think the subtle blue water adds a lot to this card.  I used fussy cutting scissors to trim the image in a sort of random way, trying to set up my vintage look.  Once I was happy with the basic appearance, I used my Prima distressing tool to distress each of the edges and notches, etc.  Once I was satisfied with that look, I added some ink to the edges — first Antique Linen and then Tea Dye.  Once the inks dried, I made one more light pass around with the distressing tool (a perfect ink job on a distressed object just doesn’t seem quite right to me).  I cut a base layer from brown cardstock.  I attached the distressed piece with Angel Crafts 1/4″ adhesive, and the ship and anchor with a low dimensional adhesive.  I tied another half-hitch knot (this time using Ginger Root Maya Road twine), and added it to the bottom of the card.  Another very easy card, but what a cool result!


Please be sure to watch the short video for additional information on the techniques that I used for each card.

I hope you won’t mind if I come back in a week or two and show you more ideas featuring the Heartfelt Creations Everyday Heroes collection.  I just love it, and each time I look at the stamp and die sets I am just so inspired.    I hope that you will also have an opportunity to work with this awesome collection.

Cards with Heartfelt Creations Birds and Bloom collection

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

Karen N here!  Today, I’m sharing a couple cards I made with Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms.

I love this beautiful feminine paper so much!  Today, I was in the mood to color, so I pulled out the Home Sweet Home stamps.  In my first card, I cut the image out using Spellbinders Labels 39.colored the image using some Copic markers.  I had some little white flowers in my stash, so I colored them with the markers.  The center of the flowers are glossy accents with some Tim Holtz Distress Glitter.  I inked the edges of the label in Tim Holtz distress ink in Tumbled Glass.  I added some ribbon and lace, and here’s what happened :)


On my next card, I wanted to make the flower embellishments a little special.  I colored the same image using Prima Watercolor Pencils.  This time, I used a fine paintbrush to add some Angel Craft Podge in semi-gloss and sprinkled just a TEENY bit of Tim Holtz Distress Glitter in Spun Sugar to the image.  I also colored, cut, podged and glittered some flowers from the Birds and Blooms Stamps (cut with my Big Shot and dies from the Leafy Branch set.   I used a embossing tool and foam pad to make them dimensional.  Before I show you the whole card, I want to show you a close-up of these cool flowers.


Cool and sparkly, huh?!  In this card, I cut the image with a circle die, added a branch (that I cut in half) that I stamped from the Leafy Branch Stamps (and cut with the Leafy Branch die).  Again, I lightly distressed the image with Tumbled Glass ink.  I fussy cut and glue dotted on the “Celebrate” sentiment and added a twine bow.  Just behind the image is a Spellbinders Labels 40 that I cut using my Sizzix Precision Base Plate.  (Love this plate for intricate dies!)  Here’s the result!


Here’s a video where you can see these cards a little more close-up!


Note that BOTH of these cards were stamped using Spellbinders Celebra’tions Ink in Berry Black.  So cool that this fabulous ink can be used for both watercolor and alcohol marker coloring!

Everyday Heroes Collection by Heartfelt Creations

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

I am so excited today to introduce you to the new Everyday Heroes collection by Heartfelt Creations.  I just love it!  Here are a couple of very simple cards featuring some of the stamps and dies —

awareness   military

The first card features some of the dies in the Everyday Heroes Die Set.   I just love the center medallion — it is appropriate for so many different occasions.  Here I envisioned it as the focal point for an awareness card.  The aqua paper is from the Everyday Heroes 12×12 paper collection, and I simply picked a ribbon that matched.  It was a super easy card to make.  I cut a base layer in a darker aqua 4.25″ x 5.5″, and a layer in the hammered gold paper 4″ x 5.25″.  The center medallion was cut from the hammered gold cardstock.  I stamped the “You’re An Everyday Hero” buckle with Walnut Stain Distress Ink on ivory cardstock.  I cut the buckle using the coordinating die.  Of course assembly of the card was super easy using my Angel Craft 1/4″  adhesive.  Note that I attached the large medallion only in the center with the Angel Craft tape.  I added a small aqua brad to each hole in the medallion.   The ribbon is a sheer white ribbon that I colored to match using a Copic marker.  I used a small piece of Angel Craft adhesive to secure it in the buckle, and attached it to the center medallion.

The second card features one of the larger stamps intended as a focal point, this one for someone who served in the military.  I did this one very simply.  I cut a background layer 4.25″ x 5.5″ in black cardstock.  I cut a layer of the hammered gold cardstock 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″.  The ivory cardstock was original cut 4.25″ x 5.5″, but after stamping was trimmed to match the design size (approximately 4″ x 4.75″).   I stamped the image in Black Soot Distress ink, and heat embossed it using Ranger Super Fine Clear embossing powder.  I stamped, embossed and fussy cut an extra pair of boots to layer on top of the image to add some dimension.  I attached this part only with a thin dimensional adhesive, the rest of the card was assembled with the Angel Craft 1/4″ adhesive.  I added just a little burlap twine at the corners to add a simple embellishment.

This Heartfelt Creations collection is just awesome!  It is perfect for masculine cards, but isn’t just limited to masculine cards.  There are just so many wonderful projects that you can make with it.  Please take a look at this short video where I show the die set, each of the stamp sets, and the paper collection.

I hope that you are as inspired as I was by this collection.  Stay tuned over the next several weeks as I show you additional projects featuring the Everyday Heroes collection.  I just love it!
