Introducing Heartfelt Creations Sparkling Poinsettia Collection

July 27th, 2015

Karen N here today introducing a FABULOUS new Heartfelt Creations Collection to Cut@Home!  Sparkling Poinsettia!  Heartfelt Creations has done it again!  It’s a beautiful collection!

Here’s a video showing you the collection stamps, dies and papers….as well as a few cards I made with this gorgeous collection!


First think I did was stamp the Sparkling Poinsettia flowers in gold ink onto a burgundy piece of patterned paper from the collection.  I then die cut these with the Sparkling Poinsettia Die.  This made enough flowers for the next two cards.  I stamped in gold and die cut again onto a pretty piece of gold vellum I had in my stash, and then used the centers for the next two cards.  I shaped the flowers with the Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  I love this kit!  It comes with everything you need to shape gorgeous flowers!  This first card is a panel from the collection layered onto the burgundy pattern paper.  I added some gold trim and gold pearls.  I added some gold Stickles to the card edges and the center.


For the next card, I put the flower on a corner of a green patterned paper die cut in my Big Shot with the Spellbinders Triple Floral Die.  This super intricate die is so pretty!  It cuts absolutely beautifully with the Sizzix Precision Base Plate.  Have one of these yet?  If not, you NEED it.  It makes these fun, intricate dies so easy.  I finished the card off with a little piece of a poinsettia border from the collection, Gold Stickles, 3 Girl JAM ribbon, and Bella Creationz Gold Sequins!


I decided to make a gold poinsettia next!  I used the Large Sparkling Poinsettia Stamp and Die.  I stamped it in Versamark, added some clear sparkling embossing powder and heat embossed it.  I shaped and layered the flower and layered it up with elements from the collection and some gold cardstock.  The center of this flower is Gold Stickles.  I’m not sure how beautiful the detail of this poinsettia is in the picture….but it’s gorgeous!  Trust me :0)



My final card is for the colorin’ lovin’ stampers out there.  I stamped the Sparkling Poinsettia Candle (gorgeous stamp) with some Spellbinders Celebra’tions Berry Black Ink and then colored the image with Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor markers.  I layered it with a sentiment onto blue cardstock and added some sequins.  I edged the flowers with Baby Blue Stickles.

How to use Sizzix Drop Ins Card with Flowers

July 27th, 2015

Happy Monday! Today I have the pleasure of sharing some great new dies from Sizzix and designer Stephanie Barnard, they are called Drop Ins and you are going to LOVE them! These dies allow you to make dimensional pop up cards, they turn out great and are fun to make!

The die set that I used is called “Card with Flowers”. You receive 21 dies in the set with a variety of different flowers you can use for layering, a couple of different leaves, as well as two different pop up centers to choose from. For today’s post I did one of each drop in!

For the first card I also used a couple of embossing folders from Sizzix and designer Stephanie Barnard, the folders I used were Flower Power and Flowers and Dots. I started with a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 standard card base, I made my own base by taking a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of card stock and scoring it in the middle. These dies are such fun, they include lots of different flowers and insets and offer lots of variety. Next I cut my drop in, the video below shows how to cut it and how they work.

Once the drop in is in the card you can cut and assemble the rest of your card. For the first card I used the three flower drop in. I cut a patterned paper a 1/4″ smaller than the card base, next I embossed a piece of coredinations card stock and embossed it using the Flower Power embossing folder, then I sanded it for a two toned effect, I cut that piece 1/4 inch smaller that the patterned piece and layered them on the front of the card. Next I embossed a coordinating piece of card stock using one of the Flowers and Dots folders, these folders are border folders, you get three in the set. I used the dotted one. I used this as a border on my card. Next I cut two smaller flowers out of a polka dot patterned paper and a large flower, I added some rain dots in the center of the two smaller flowers. For the larger flower I also cut a circle using Spellbinders circle dies and added it in the center of the flower as well as a decorative metal grommet that I had, I added one of the rain dots in the center of the grommet as well, I also added two leaves to the large flower. To finish off the front of the card I added some random rain dots in some of the centers of the flowers on the embossed piece. Here is a look at the front of the card:


For the inside of the card, I added some flowers to the pop up part of the card using the coordinating card stock and patterned paper. I added rain dots for the middle of the flowers. I also added two leaves. Finally I added two stamped sentiments and cut them using a Spellbinders die set. Here is a look at the inside:


For the second card I used the large flower drop in. I also started with a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card base in yellow, I used another card stock in yellow for the drop in that was just a little lighter than the card base, I rounded the two outer corners of the card base with a 1/4 paper rounder. Next I cut a patterned piece of paper fo the back ground of my card, I cut this 1/4 inch smaller than the front of the card and rounded the corners of the two outer edges and mounted it to the front of my card. Next i cut some flowers for the front, I cut the largest flower in the set, one out of each of the yellows that I used, I used a pop dot to layer the two pieces, next I cut a smaller flower out of the patterned paper and layered them the same way. I adhered them to the larger flower. Then I cut the smaller flower and two leaves. I cut these out of toner paper and ran them through the Minc (the minc is a foiling machine I purchased from HSN). I used a sentiment that was foiled in the Minc as well. To finish off the front of the card I ran ribbon across the front and bottom and added some bling in the center of the flower. Here is a look at the finished front:


For the inside of the card I layered a few of the different flower shapes over the center pop up flower. I also cut and layered some of the smaller flowers from the patterned paper, and added some foil pieces. I also added two of the foiled leaves. Next I stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment inside the card, added ribbon to the inside top and bottom and added some bling on the flowers. Here is a look at the finished inside:


These dies are very fun to use and easy! I had a great time making these and people love receiving cards that have a little added surprise inside. Here is a list of the products that I used that are available to purchase on the web site.

Card making with Tim Holtz Scribbles and Splats dies

July 24th, 2015

Karen N here today sharing some cards I made with a fabulous new die set from Sizzix, the Tim Holtz Scribbles and Splats.  Go ahead, click on that link and see these CUTE dies!  Better yet, check out my video that shows my projects using these fun dies:

All of my cards use the Heartfelt Creations Antiquity Collection Paper.  This paper is fabulous for masculine or vintage-y cards.  These first two cards are made basically the same….each uses one of the scribbles die and a sentiment de-bossed with a Tim Holtz Shadowpress Sentiments folder.  Of course, I did the debossing and the die cut with the fabulous Big Shot machine. I fished them off with some 3 Girl JAM ribbon and some Timeless Twine along with some chipboard stars or pearls.



I colored up an image from Marianne Craft design for my next card.  (Sorry, I found out after I was done that the stamp has been discontinued!).  This adorable girl with her cupcakes made me want to add a splat on the corner.  For this card, I also added a piece of flower-y MME paper that I had in my scrap-pile to add some flowers.



I hope you enjoyed seeing these projects today.  Below is my complete supply list!

Craftily yours,
