Heartfelt Creations Buttons and Blooms Shaker Card for the Alumni Hop

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the October 2018 Alumni Hop.  Today I have a sweet and sparkly Buttons and Blooms Shaker Card to share with you.  You know I had to purchase this entire collection because, hello….buttons!

I hadn’t made a shaker card in a while, so that’s the direction I went in.  This is a 6″ x 6″ shaker card with a top fold opening.  Here’s how I put the shaker together:

  • First, use the square die from Cut, Mat, Create 2 A Die to cut the pocket image from the 6″ x 6″ card front in the  Buttons and Blooms Paper Collection.  Save the pocket image to use inside the card.
  • Next, stitch or adhere a 5 3/4″ square of clear cardstock to the back side of the frame you just created.
  • Now, select a 6″ x 6″  card front to serve as the background image for your shaker window.
  • Then place two layers of foam tape about 1/2″ from the edges on the back side of this card front.  Do not remove the liner from the top layer of foam tape yet.
  • Fill the cavity with sequins, beads,  Prills, small buttons…whatever strikes your fancy.  Be careful not to overfill, or the shaker won’t shake. (Note: I used glitter in my shaker, but I would not do that again, as the static electricity caused it to cling to the shaker window.)
  • Next, remove the tape liner, center your shaker frame over the background image and adhere.
  • Adhere this entire assembly to the front of a 6″ x 6″ card base.

Die cut tickets and tags from the paper collection using the Tickets and Tags Die.

Use these to decorate the card interior.

Cut out the A2 card front, but leave the extra blank journal card attached.  Score along the journal card to form a flap.  Adhere the flap behind a 5 3/4″ square panel of patterned paper from the collection.  Then adhere the entire assembly to the card.

Then use a circle die to cut a thumb hole from the pocket image we saved in Step One.  Adhere 3 sides to form a gift card pocket.  Insert a cut tag here.  Cut a border strip and adhere it at the top of the page.

Now your card is ready to give to the lucky recipient!

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflower Card Folio for the HC Alumni Hop

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations September 2018 Alumni Hop!  The shorter days of autumn are upon us and soon the leaves will begin to fall. This Heartfelt Creations  Rustic Sunflower Card Folio is rich with autumn hues, texture and rustic charm.

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflowers Card Folio Beary Fun Retreat by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Acorns, turning leaves and brilliant sunflowers are  all things that I love.  Creating this 5″ x 7″ x 1/2″ card folio was pure joy!  Here are the Heartfelt Creations supplies that you will need to make this project:

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflower Card Folio: Card Basics

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflowers Card Folio Beary Fun Retreat by Kathy Clement Photo 02

First create your card base with kraft cardstock.

  • Begin by cutting two 5″ x 11″ panels from kraft card.
  • Then add 1/2″ Scor-Tape or the adhesive of your choice to one of the 5″ ends.
  • Next, peel off the liner tape and carefully overlap the other 5″ end over the tape to create one long 5″ x 21 1/2″ panel.  Burnish well with a bone folder.
  • Now, place the long side of the panel on a scoring tool.  Score at 7″.
  • Then score at 7 1/2″. Fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Next, place the 7 1/2″ score line into the left hand corner of your scoring tool and score at 7″.  Measure off 3″ from that score line and cut away the excess.
  • Now you have a 5″ x 7″ card base with a 1/2″ spine and a built in pocket.  Pretty sweet, right?

Add your patterned papers as seen in the photo.  I stitched the focal image onto a piece of burlap.  Be sure to add foam tape or waste chipboard between your card layers to add lots of dimension.

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflower Card Folio: Rustic Sunflowers

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflowers Card Folio Beary Fun Retreat by Kathy Clement Photo 03

To make these rustic sunflowers, follow these easy steps:

  • First, use ColorBox Dark Brown Chalk Ink to stamp 2 sets of the Classic Sunflowers on the yellow print paper from the Beary Retreat Center.  Heat Emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.
  • Next, Die cut the flower layers using the Classic Sunflowers Die.
  • Then, Place the flower layers in the 3-D Floral Basics Shaping Mold.  You can do up to 3 layers at a time, but be sure to mist each layer before adding the next.  Run through your die cutting machine to shape.
  • Now, randomly dry brush the petals with Rusty Hinge Distress Paint.
  • When the paint is dry, spray the flower layers with Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls and Tattered Angels Bronze Glimmer Mist.  Pinch the ends of the petals to give them a rustic, wrinkled tip. Dry with a heat tool
  • Now use a ball stylus to shape the center of each sunflower to form a cup.
  • Next, layer the flowers together with the adhesive of your choice.  I use hot glue.
  • Finally, fill the centers with hot glue and Czech beads.
  • Stamp, Die Cut, shape and color the leafy accents.  Add everything to your card.

I added more leafy accents on top of my beautiful blue, cream and gold plaid bow.  Then I hot glued on some acorns that I had in my stash, along with some little acorn and leaf charms.

I love to make cards that double as gifts.  Now you know why I had to add a 1/2″ spine to this card folio!

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflowers Card Folio Beary Fun Retreat by Kathy Clement Photo 06

Turn the flap and you find a little gift card pocket, a place to write a little note, and room to add a photo.  I cut the opening in the pocket with a circle die.

After covering out pocket with designer paper from the collection, I simply glued the sides to the card base.  This is such an easy way to make a pocket!  Then you get to do the fun part: fill the pocket with treats.  This is a vintage silver spoon, a little tea bag wallet, and a honey stick to complete the ensemble.

Tuck a pumpkin spice tea bag into the pocket, and your gift is ready to give!  I like to wrap these cards up in tissue paper and tie them with ribbon for presentation.

Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 02

I always create my card cover before I attach it to the card base.  This way, it stays clean and pretty.  Here’s how I put these card layers together.

  • Cut a 5″ x 7″ rectangle of the dark teal print from the Peacock Paisley Paper Collection.
  • Mat on a slightly larger piece of white cardstock.
  • Now die cut the largest Eyelet Lace Frame from white cardstock. Center and adhere to the dark teal panel.

Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio: Making the Flowers

Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 03

I don’t know about you, but I adore daisies.  These Delightful Daisies are so easy to make thanks to the Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp Set, the matching die and the Basic Flower Mold.  Here’s how to make them.

  • First, stamp two sets of daisies onto plain white cardstock using ColorBox Butter Chalk Ink.
  • Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
  • Use sponge daubers to color the centers with Guacamole Chalk Ink.
  • Add Butter Chalk Ink to the petal edges.
  • Die cut with the Delightful Daisies Die.

Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 04

  • Now place face down in the Basic Flower Mold.  Spritz lightly with water and run through your die cutting machine.
  • Next, remove the flower layers from the mold and shape with the Flower Shaping Tool Kit.
  • Layer the petals together, then pierce the centers to insert the stamens.
  • Now brush the petals lightly with Scattered Straw Distress Paint.  Dry.
  • To add color and shine, spritz the finished flowers with Perfect Pearls Sunflower Sparkle Mist, or any yellow mica based spray.
  • Set aside to dry.
Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio: Leafy Accents

Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 05

Adding foliage to a flower cluster lends it a realistic and full appearance.  I love the new Leafy Accents Stamps, Dies and Mold.  I had these pretty leaves made in no time flat.  Here’s how.

  • First, stamp all 4 leaf stamps onto plain white card using Guacamole Chalk Ink.
  • Next, heat emboss with Wow Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter or whatever glitter embossing powder you have in your stash.
  • Use sponge daubers to add Lime Pastel and Butter Chalk Ink to the interior of the leaves.
  • Now, die cut with the matching Leafy Accents Die.
  • Next, place the die cut leaves face down in the Leafy Accents Mold.  Spritz lightly with water and run through your die cutting machine.
  • As a finishing touch, I sponged Guacamole Chalk Ink over the embossed veins.

Now all you have to do is arrange your leaves and flowers!  I added a shabby chic seam binding bow and some glitter ribbon to finish my flower cluster.  Then I added two small daisies, a charm and glitter ribbon to the side of my tag.

Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio: A Peek Inside

Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 06

Inside my card, I created a little flap/pocket combo.

Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 07

I hand wrote my sentiment on the left hand side of the flap.  Then I added a little tea bag pocket on the right.

Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 08

I dressed up my pocket with a bold chevron print and a die cut ticket sentiment.  Then I filled it to bursting with all kinds of little goodies.

Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 09

You’ll find a honey stick to go with the tea bag.  And I scored/folded a row of the little ATC sized panels on the cut apart page to form an accordion folio.  This is held closed with a peacock belly band.

I used the scraps on my work table to create a mini note card and a bookmark, too.

Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 10

Add a handmade tassel and charm to make the bookmark really special.

Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 11Finally, I created a 4″ x 5″ gift card holder.  I love to use up those scraps on my worktable!  It makes cleanup so much easier!

Lush Lilac Sweet Day Get Well Card

Heartfelt Creations June 2018 Alumni Hop: Lush Lilac Sweet Day Get Well Card

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop!  Today I have a a lovely Lush Lilac Sweet Day Get Well Card to Share with you.  You’ll find the complete hop list at the bottom of this post along with a supply list.  Are you ready to hop?  Let’s get started!

Sweet Day Lush Lilac Get Well Card by Kathy Clement Product by Heartfelt Creations Photo 01

This collection is well-named!  It is so lush!  Growing up in New England, lilac bushes were always the harbinger of Springtime.  You could count on the winter weather and snow being past when the lilacs started to bloom.

I’ve combined the Lush Lilac Blooms with Sweet Peonies on this 5 1/4″ x 8″ top fold card.  The darling little birds, ornate bird cages,  tiny lilac blossoms and peonies look so pretty together.

One of the things I love about working with Heartfelt Creation products is the thoughtful design of each collection.  For instance, in the Lush Lilac paper collection, there’s a whole page of lovely printed/colored lilac blooms.  You simply place the matching die over the paper, cut out, run through the Lush Lilac flower mold and boom!  Dozens of perfectly colored and shaped lilac blossoms in no time.  I brushed each blossom with a little Art Institute Dries Clear Glitter Glue, then shook them in a container of Angel Dust Glitter to add just a touch of sparkle and shine.

Lush Lilac Sweet Day Get Well Card: Construction Details

Sweet Day Lush Lilac Get Well Card by Kathy Clement Product by Heartfelt Creations Photo 01

This is a very simple card to make. NOTE: I inked all my cut edges with ColorBox Plumeria chalk ink.

  • First, cut the main card panel from the collection.  I cut mine to measure 4 3/4″ x 7 1/4″.
  • Now mat the panel on a slightly larger amethyst cardstock panel.  Machine stitch around the perimeter with cream thread.
  • Next, lay the stitched panel on a glass cutting mat (or the glass from an old picture frame). Use a craft knife to cut along the left hand edge of the birdcage.  You want a slit that is just large enough to fit the “Have a Sweet Day” tag.
  • To add dimension, back the tag with foam dots or waste chipboard and insert into the prepared opening.  Adhere in place.
  • Now top the tag with a small bow and button.  Add a mini white clothespin to the top right hand corner.  Top with lilac blooms.
Lush Lilac Sweet Day Get Well Card: Purple Peonies

Here’s how I made my purple peonies:

  • Stamp two sets of Large Sweet Peonies onto patterned paper from the Lush Lilac Paper Collection.  I used ColorBox Plumeria Ink to do this.
  • Stamp 3 Sets of Small Sweet Peonies on patterned paper.
  • Before die cutting, add green or yellow chalk ink to the center of each flower.
  • Die cut flower layers and foliage with the matching dies.
  • Spritz lightly with water and place in the Basic Flower Shaping Mold.  Then run through your die cutting machine.

 

  • Cup each layer with  a stylus from the Flower Shaping Tool Kit.
  • Stagger the flower layers and adhere together.
  • Pierce the center of each flower and add stamens.
  • Mist flowers with a combination of Lavender Fields and Dazzling Diamonds Tattered Angels Mist.
  • Dry with a heat gun.
  • Use sponge daubers to add more Plumeria Ink to outside petals and cut edges.
  • Adhere to card.
Lush Lilac Sweet Day Get Well Card: A Peek Inside

I’ve added a flap and pocket to the card interior.

This sentiment is so perfect for someone dealing with a long recovery.  I hand wrote it on the open space of the designer paper.  The little flap pocket on the right is filled with cheery thoughts to brighten long days.

The large pocket on the bottom contains more happy thoughts written on some of the lovely tags and journal cards from the cut apart page.
