Heartfelt Creations Coral Seahorse Birthday Shaker Card for the Alumni Hop

 

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the August Alumni Hop!  Today I have a Heartfelt Creations Coral Seahorse Birthday Shaker Card to share with you.  It’s made with the whimsical Under the Sea collection.  See if you can guess which Heartfelt Flower Stamp/Die combo I used?

If you guessed Poinsettia and Holly Clusters, then you are right on target!  Stamp these little beauties with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink.  Then sponge with Abandoned Coral DI. Die cut, run through the Poinsettia Flower mold and you’ve got yourself some coral reef blossoms just like that!

This 5″ x 7″ Top Fold card has a fun interactive pocket and shaker tag on the cover.  Here’s how I did it.

  • First cut a 5″ x 7″ panel of the white/teal woodgrain patterned paper.  Ink the edges very lightly with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink.
  • Next, cut a 4″ x 6″ panel of the underwater dark teal paper.
  • Then, fussy cut the coral reef scene from the paper collection.
  • Stitch the left and bottom edges of the coral reef scene to the dark teal underwater panel.
  • Now adhere this panel to the woodgrain panel.
  • Die cut the fish/porthole from the paper collection using the Coral Reef Collage Die.  Adhere as seen in the photo.  This is how the pocket is made.

Look at all the great dimension on this card!  And really, it’s so simple to make.  Here’s how I embellished the card.

  • Brush the sandy bottom of the coral reef scene with Versamark Embossing Ink.
  • Next, sprinkle liberally with Seth Apter’s Dirty Sand Baked Texture.  Heat emboss to create realistic looking textured sand.
  • Cut the Happy Birthday ticket from the paper collection.  Adhere with dimensionals.
  • Die cut the coral reef border from the paper collection using the Coral Reef Collage Die.  Pop up on dimensionals and adhere to lower left corner.
  • Stamp, color and die cut two sets of Poinsettia and Holly Clusters onto white card using Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink.
  • Run through the Poinsettia Flower Mold.
  • Now layer together with glue.  Add Coral See and Seas the Day Prills to the centers.
  • Then adhere to the card as seen.
  • Finally, tie a double loop bow using Coral Satin Ribbon.

This little 3″ x 5 1/2″ shaker pouch is super easy to make.  Here’s how:

  • Fussy cut the seahorses and greenery from the paper collection.  Adhere to the woodgrain panel.
  • Mat this panel on a slightly larger rectangle of white cardstock.
  • Now cut a 3″ x 5 1/2″ panel of clear cardstock.
  • Next, secure the clear cardstock panel to the shaker pouch base with binder clips or safety pins.
  • Stitch the sides and bottom on your sewing machine.  Leave the top edge open.
  • Fill the pouch with Buttons Galore Ocean Waves Sparkletz.
  • Now stitch the top edge closed.
  • Next, cut the thread so it is long.  Use the top thread to tie on a couple of cute ocean charms.
  • Tie a bow with curling glittery ribbon and adhere .

Inside the card, I created a couple of cute pockets.  Then I filled them with elements from the collection.  The seashell is die cut from the paper collection, shaped with the stylus, inked with Abandoned Coral DI and adhered to the card.  Tuck a journal card in the pocket and add your personal greeting to the card.

  • This 5.25″ x 7.25″ card folio is like summer sunshine and summer skies.  Create the card base by cutting a piece of 8.5″ x 11″ cream cardstock into two 5.25″ x 8.5″ panels.

Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio:  Designing the Card Cover

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.
  • Next, cut a 4″ x 6″ panel of the yellow daisy print from Peacock Paisley.  Mat on a slightly larger piece of white cardstock.  Back with foam tape. Center and adhere over the Eyelet Lace Frame.
  • Then, cut a 3″ x 5″ rectangle of the paisley print panel.  Mat as before.  Back with foam tape. Center and adhere.
  • Now cut a 5.25″ x 2.5″ panel of the chevron stripe paper.  Mat just the upper and lower edges on white cardstock.  Add foam tape only to the left and right hand sides.  Center over the paisley print and adhere.
  • Die cut the Yellow Daisy/Peacock Feathers tag from the collection using the Luggage and Tags Die.  Back with foam tape.  Adhere to the card front so that the tapered end lines up with the chevron border on the right.
  • Finally, die cut the Ticket Sentiment using the Luggage and Tags Die.  Back with foam tape and adhere to the tag.
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.

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.

Blazing Poppy Altered Keepsake Box for the Heartfelt Creations May 2018 Alumni Hop

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations May 2018 Alumni Hop!  The hop starts here. You’ll find a complete blog hop list at the end of this post.  Since May is the month when we celebrate Memorial Day in the US, I thought a Blazing Poppy themed project would be fun to make.  After a search through the Closet of Shame, I found a lovely round box that some dear soul passed on to me and I decided to upcycle it into this Blazing Poppy Altered Keepsake Box.

Blazing Poppy Altered Keepsake Box Blazing Poppy by Kathy Clement Product by Heartfelt Creations Photo 01

This box is about 6″ in diameter and about 3″ high.  Since the base color was already a lovely shade of poppy, I simply needed to add my designer papers, flowers, foliage and embellishments.

Blazing Poppy Altered Keepsake Box: Tips and Tricks

Blazing Poppy Altered Keepsake Box Blazing Poppy by Kathy Clement Product by Heartfelt Creations Photo 02

Round boxes are fairly easy to alter.  While I didn’t have time to do a complete tutorial this month, here are some tips and tricks that I used:

  • First, measure the height of the inside walls of your box.  Then cut your designer paper about 1/4″ less than that measurement.
  • Next, trace the bottom of the box onto your chosen designer paper.  If you cut inside the traced circle, you should have a liner piece for the box interior that’s just about perfect in size.
  • Then, repeat that process to create the liner piece for the interior cover.
  • I inked all my paper edges with a combination of Abandoned Coral, Ripe Persimmon and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.
  • Use border strips to line outside edges of the box.  First, brush the back side of your paper with Distress Collage Medium.  After applying your cut strips to the box sides, it is helpful to burnish lightly with a slightly damp paper towel to push out any air bubbles.
  • Add a second coat of Distress Collage Medium to seal and protect the paper.

Since I already had all my “mess” out on the desk, I decided to create a little 4″ square gift card holder to go inside the box.

The round focal is cut from one of the pre-designed card fronts in the Blazing Poppy Paper Collection.  To add extra dimension, I popped my fussy cut denim pocket full of poppies up with foam dots.

Next I tucked this die cut tag behind the pocket and added a vintage style metal key.

The interior of the card has a gift card pocket.  Fill it with a tiny tag and miniature chocolate treat for extra fun..

Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony All Occasion Card

This hop is now closed.  The randomly chosen winner is Martie Rollin from Marie Gamber’s Blog.  Thanks for hopping!
Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony All Occasion Card for the April 2018 Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations April 2018 Alumni Blog Hop!  The hop starts here.  You’ll find the complete hop list at the end of this post.  My grandmother had the most beautiful flower garden I have ever seen.  My favorite blooms were always the peonies. I can remember tip toeing through the garden with my mother, gently lifting those fragrant, heavy blossoms to inhale the scent.  So I just had to add the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony Collection to my crafty stash!    This Spring Garden All Occasion Greeting card is perfect for Mother’s Day, Birthdays, Weddings, or anniversaries.  I just loved making these bodacious blossoms!

Springtime in the Garden with Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony

The papers in this collection are especially lovely with beautiful soft pastels and pops of pink, rose and yellow.  Here are the steps I followed to create the card.

  • Begin by cutting a 4 7/8″ x 6 7/8″ panel from the floral cluster page in the  Sweet Peony paper collection.
  • Next, use a distressing tool to lightly rough up the edges.  You can also use the side of your scissor blade to to this; just be careful not to cut yourself!
  • Once you have distressed the edges, stitch around the perimeter of this panel, using ivory thread.
  • Now lightly sponge the edges with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.
  • Use 1.5″ wide pink gingham ribbon to create a belly band.  Wrap this around the panel, securing with Scor-Tape or your favorite adhesive.
  • Next, cut a 4″ x 6″ rectangle from the soft pink background paper. Repeat the above steps, omitting the stitching.
  • To add dimension, back this panel with foam tape, waste chipboard or old cardboard packaging.  Then center and adhere to the first panel.
Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony All Occasion Card: Creating the Card Focal

 

Heartfelt Creation Dies make quick work of creating this card focal.  Here’s how I did it:

  • First, cut the peony image from the paper collection using the Eyelet Oval Die. I used just the 3.25″ x 5″ oval die for this. Ink the edges very lightly with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  • Next, from white cardstock, die cut the doily frame using the 4.5″ x 6″  Eyelet Oval Die frame.
  • To add dimension, back the Eyelet Oval Frame Die cut with foam tape, etc.  I sponged a very light layer of Worn Lipstick Distress Ink to the center of the die cut.  Don’t add ink to the scalloped frame portion.
  • Center and adhere to the card.
  • Adhere the die cut card focal.
  • Fussy cut the pink label from the cut apart page. Back with dimensionals.
  • Die cut the sentiment ticket with the Luggage and Tags Die.  Adhere to the pink label and then to the card.
Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony All Occasion Card: the fun part!  Making the Flowers

There is something so relaxing and rewarding about making flowers!  I tried some new techniques when making these gorgeous Sweet Peony blooms.  Here’s how I did it:

  • Remove the soft pink background page from the Sweet Peony Paper Collection.  Cut it into two 6″ x 12″ panels.
  • Using the Colorbox Berrylicious Ink Pad,  stamp the Small Sweet Peony Cling Stamps all over both panels.  Then heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.
  • Before die cutting with the Small Sweet Peony Die, use sponge daubers to apply Colorbox Guacamole Chalk Ink in the center of each flower layer.
  • Stamp the leaves onto white cardstock, also using Guacamole Ink and heat embossing.

 

  • Once all the different sizes of Sweet Peony flower layers  have been die cut, place them in the appropriate sections of the 3-D Floral Basics Flower Shaping Mold and emboss the flowers following the product directions.
  • Assemble the flower layers, then add stamens.
  • Turn the flowers upside down and spray liberally with Alpine Ice RoseBougainvillea Spray Mists.  Spray some in between the petal layers as well, to cover over the back side of the patterned paper.  Set aside to dry naturally, or gently heat dry.
  • If you would rather not use mist, then sponge the back side of the petals with Berrylicious Ink before assembly.
  • As a final step, apply Antique Linen Distress Ink to the petal edges, and to the edges of the card layers.
  • When everything is dry, arrange the flowers on the card as seen in the photos.
Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony All Occasion Card: A Peek Inside

Line the card interior with more designer papers.  Create a pocket and a gift card pocket, if desired.

This is an old, retired gift card die that I have in my stash.  You could create a substitute for this by cutting down a small envelope and covering with designer paper.

To create this elegant Tea Bag Wallet insert, I die cut the Sweet Lilac Scroll and Cage from White Cardstock.  Then I backed it with one of the images from the cut apart page and fussy cut around the top edges.

This makes such a fun card, gift and home decor combo!    Giving a unique gift like this is such a lovely way to shower the people you love with love!
