Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio for the HC Alumni Hop

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the  July 2018 Heartfelt Creations Alumni  Blog Hop!  Summertime colors inspired this bright and cheery Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio that I have to share with you today.

Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 01a

  • 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.
  • Join the two short ends together with Scor-Tape or Dries Clear Adhesive.
  • Then score on the long side at 7.25″ , 7.5″.
  • Fold to form a card base with a 1/4″ spine.
  • Score the extra flap and fold to the inside of the card to form a pocket.
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!

Heartfelt Creations June Alumni Hop: Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial

Hello Friends!  Welcome to the June 2107 Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop!  You should be coming here from Amarilys’ lovely blog.  Our gorgeous summer weather drew me to play with the deep blues, bold yellows, and greens of the gorgeous Peacock Paisley Collection.  The inspiration for this Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial occurred while I was tidying up a drawer in my studio.  I happened upon a very pretty pale green envelope and suddenly, the idea was hatched!

Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial by Kathy Clement Product by Heartfelt Creations Photo 1

I had so much fun making this Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope that I thought I’d share some tips and tricks with you so that you can make one yourself.

Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial: Creating the Delightful Daisies

Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial by Kathy Clement Product by Heartfelt Creations Photo 2

Follow these steps to create the Delightful Daisies that will decorate the altered envelope.

  1.  First, stamp 3 sets of Delightful Daisies onto lightweight white cardstock using Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink.
  2. Next, cover with clear embossing powder and heat set.
  3. Now, die cut the Delightful Daisies with the matching die.
  4. Then, use a sponge dauber to tint the leaves with Broken China Distress Ink.
  5. Next, add Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink to the flower center.
  6. Now shape the flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.
  7. Then stack the flowers together and hot glue.
  8. Next, scribble light layers of Art institute Dries Clear Adhesive into the flower centers and randomly along the petals.
  9. Now, sprinkle the glue with the glitter of your choice.  I used Stampendous Multi Crystal Mix.
  10. Tap the excess off into a scrappy tray.
  11. Finally, set the flowers aside to dry.
Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial: Preparing the Envelope

Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial by Kathy Clement Product by Heartfelt Creations Photo 3

  1. First, find a 5″ x 7″ envelope with a square flap closure.  This project would not work as well on an envelope with a pointed envelope flap.
  2. Then, ink all the envelope edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink
  3. Next, cut a 4.75″ x 6.75″ rectangle of designer paper from the Peacock Paisley Collection.
  4. Then Ink the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink.
  5. Now, machine stitch around the edges.
  6. Use a distressing tool to lightly distress the edges of the panel.
  7. Center the panel on the card front, being sure to glue it below the fold.
  8. Next, Cut the border strip from the designer paper pack.
  9. Then glue it onto the front of the envelope flap being sure to place it above the fold.
  10. Now, use scissors to trim the border to fit the flap.
  11. Finally, ink the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink.

We’ll finish decorating the front of the envelope later.  

Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial: Preparing the Envelope Liner and back cover

Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial by Kathy Clement Product by Heartfelt Creations Photo 4

The interior of the envelope is a great tuck spot for tags, bookmarks and/or mini folios.  You can’t use anything too terribly thick, as the envelope will split.  But, you can create a pocket outside the envelope as I did here.

  1. First, flip the envelope face down on your work surface.
  2. Next, create a template for the envelope “cover” by inserting a 6 7/8″ wide piece of plain copy paper inside the envelope.
  3. Then trace the envelope opening onto the copy paper and cut out.  This will serve as the template for the envelope cover.
  4. Place the template onto your chosen designer paper and trace the shape lightly in pencil.
  5. Now cut the shape out.  Here’s a tip: if you cut inside the traced lines, you will not have to erase any pencil marks.  And, you will also have a little border around the designer paper, which looks really nice.  Set this piece aside for the moment.
  6. Now create the envelope liner.
  7. First, select your designer paper, and measure it to 6 7/8″ wide x 7 1/4″ deep.
  8. Next, insert the designer paper face up inside the opened envelope to make sure it fits.  It should be somewhat snug.
  9. Then, glue the envelope liner in place.  It will cover the inside of the envelope as well as the inside envelope flap.
  10. Now, use your scissors to trim away any excess paper. Ink all the edges.
  11. Finally, carefully glue the envelope cover in place.  Use your scissors to trim away any excess.

Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial:  Creating the Tag Pocket

 

Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial by Kathy Clement Product by Heartfelt Creations Photo 5

I love little pockets filled with tags, so I decided to create a small tag pocket on the back side of my altered envelope.

  1. First, select a 4″ x 5″ card front from the designer paper.
  2. Then, trim the outer frame away so that the image measures approximately 4 5/8″ wide x 3.25″ tall. Ink all the edges.
  3. Next, cut a panel of navy cardstock that measures 5.25″ wide x 3.75″ tall.
  4. Mat the designer image on the navy cardstock, leaving a 1/2″ margin on both sides as well as the bottom.  Leave just a tiny margin of navy cardstock on the top edge.
  5. Then, use a scoring tool to score the sides and the bottom.
  6. Next, bevel the bottom left and right corners to form pocket flaps.
  7. Now, glue the designer image to the pocket front.
  8. Finally glue the entire pocket in place on the back of the envelope.
  9. Use the Luggage and Tags Dies to cut out tags and tickets from the cut apart page.
  10. Mat on navy cardstock.
  11. Add flowers and string bows to the tops of the tags.  Insert the tags into the pocket.

Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope: Gift Card Wallet

Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial by Kathy Clement Product by Heartfelt Creations Photo 7

Now we will prepare the gift card wallet for the altered envelope.

  1.  Select an image from one of the cut apart page and mat it onto the far right hand side of  an 8.5″ long x 4 5.8″ tall strip of navy cardstock.
  2.  Now, place the long side of the navy cardstock on your scoring tool with the matted image on the right hand side.
  3.  Score just slightly to the left of the image so there is a small navy border.
  4. Crease and make a mountain fold at the score line.
  5. With the panel folded and the long side of the image against the rail, score at 3.25″.
  6. Crease and make a valley fold at this score line.
  7. This is your gift card wallet.  Line the interior and the flap.
  8. Use a circle punch to add a thumb hole, then glue just the sides to create a gift card pocket.

You can decorate the interior any way you like.  Here’s how I decorated mine.

Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope: Creating the Bookmark

 

Here’s how to create this double sided bookmark.

Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial by Kathy Clement Product by Heartfelt Creations Photo 9

  1. First, use the largest rectangle from Cut, Mat, Create 1B die to cut out the design from a 5″ x 7″ card front.
  2. Now ink the edges and flick with water.
  3. Use a pen or computer journal the sentiment onto the panel.
  4. Mat on navy cardstock.
  5. Now, cut a second rectangle from designer paper.
  6. Stamp with the Daisy Flourish Die using Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink. Use a sponge dauber to add color to daisy centers.
  7. Trace Art Institute Dries Clear Glitter adhesive onto the stamped design and add glitter.  Set aside to dry.
  8. Ink the edges.  Flick with water.
  9. Add a border strip to the bottom.
  10. Mat a ticket and glue in place.
  11. Glue onto the opposite side of the navy cardstock.
  12. Punch a hole,  and.add ribbon.

Peacock Paisley Altered Envelope Tutorial: Finishing Touches

I never decorate the fronts of my cards (or in this case the altered envelope) until the very end.  This way, my flowers and designs don’t get crushed.  Now we are finally ready to add the finishing details.

  1. First, glue the border piece in place on the far left hand side of the envelope front.
  2. Next, add the matted peacock tag  as seen in the photo.
  3. Now, die cut the outer frame of the Eyelet Oval from white cardstock.
  4. Back with foam adhesive or waste chipboard to add dimension.  Glue in place.
  5. Now, use the Eyelet oval thin frame to cut the peacock image from designer paper.
  6. Back with foam adhesive or waste chipboard for extra dimension and glue in place.
  7. Hot glue prepared flowers, leaves and ribbon in place.
  8. Mat a border strip onto navy cardstock and glue in place.
  9. Add a small button.

Peacock Paisley Note Cards Tutorial

Peacock Paisley Note Cards Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  And Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!  Today I have a CAS Peacock Paisley Note Cards Tutorial to share with you.  Yes!  You heard me right!  I said Clean and Simple!  Not what you usually expect when you visit my blog, and the hardest style for me to achieve, but sometimes, the unexpected happens, and that is what makes life so interesting.  Take a peeky:

Peacock Paisley Note Cards/Kathy by Design for Heartfelt Creations

Peacock Paisley Note Cards/Kathy by Design for Heartfelt Creations

When I receive a new design team collection, I like to sit down and stamp all the stamps on plain white cardstock using black ink. It helps me really get a feel for how I want to use the stamps in a given collection.  Well, I was floored by how stunning these Peacock Paisley images were when simply stamped in black and white , and I decided to create these CAS note cards to really showcase their incredible beauty.

Peacock Paisley Note Cards 11Look at the gorgeous detail on this Daisy Flourish Stamp!  It is beautiful when colored and embellished, of course, but how wonderful to have stamps in my stash that I can use to create a 10 minute card when I need to!

Peacock Paisley Note Cards/Kathy by Design for Heartfelt Creations

Peacock Paisley Note Cards/Kathy by Design for Heartfelt Creations

This Feathery Peacock stamp has a wonderful almost dreamlike quality to it.  Talk about elegant!  It fits the bill perfectly!

Peacock Paisley Note Cards 04Here I used the budding daisy from the Feathered Daisy Stamp set as the card focal, and added the beautiful little wisps from the Daisy Flourish Stamp as corner accents.

Peacock Paisley Note Cards 02I did do a couple of simple things to dress these cards up.  First, I added a square knot tied with Really Reasonable Ribbon Aqua Delicate Stitched Satin.  It’s the perfect compliment to the envelopes I made with Stampin’ Up Pool Party Cardstock.  I lined each envelope with the stunning paisley print from the Peacock Paisley Paper Collection.   I added another little torn strip of this paper to the front of each envelope.  You can bundle these 4 Pretty Peacock Note Cards up with the envelopes and tie with a ribbon to present as a gift, or just keep them so that when you need to write a quick note, you have a pretty card handy.

I know you are probably surprised to find such simple cards here on my blog…the girl who is known for loads of layers and embellies tucked into every possible crevice!  But sometimes it’s nice to let a beautiful stamped image take center stage all by itself.  And, for those of you who are timid about stamping, this is a great collection!  As you can see, it’s can be quick and easy to produce an amazing card without a whole lot of technique.

You’ll find the complete supply list and tutorial below.  I’d love to hear what you think of these CAS Peacock Paisley Note Cards in the comment section below.

Thanks for stopping by!

Kathy by Design/Peacock Paisley Mini Album for Heartfelt Creations

Peacock Paisley Mini Album Tutorial

Peacock Paisley Mini Album Tutorial for Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

Hello, Friends!  Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!  This week, we are introducing the luxurious and exotic Peacock Paisley Collection of stamps, dies and papers.  Here are the official release notes:

Brighten your world with the sparkling colors and mesmerizing motifs of Peacock Paisley, the exquisite spring release from Heartfelt Creations. This lush collection sparkles with jewel tones of topaz, sapphire, amber, emerald and turquoise. The artistic flair of exotic peacocks, intricate paisleys, frilled feathers and delightful daisies will captivate your imagination and energize your creativity. Six sumptuous sets of intricately designed, deeply etched red rubber stamps are the perfect companions to a vibrant paper collection that is overflowing with card fronts, cut apart pages, vivid artwork, pre-designed layouts and beautifully layered backgrounds. The Delightful Daisy Die cuts 7 perfect floral layers with one pass through your cutting system. Whether you want to preserve life’s most beautiful moments, create with mixed media techniques or design keepsake cards, you’ll be proud as a peacock to present the sophisticated elegance of Peacock Paisley.

To celebrate the release, I created this Peacock Paisley Mini Album.

Peacock Paisley Album 01a

This hand bound mini album measures about 9.5″ x 5.5″.  It has a chipboard cover that has been bound with burlap and decorated with Delightful Daisies and a host of papers and stamps from the Peacock Paisley Collection.  You’ll find a complete supply list and detailed tutorial below.

Peacock Paisley Album 10aThe Delightful Daisy stamps and dies are easy to work with because all the flower and die layers are on one stamp/die so you can make a bunch of these all at the same time.  You can layer them, or keep them to one layer, as I have done here.

Peacock Paisley Album 03aHere’s a look at the binding for the album.  I had never made a hidden hinge album before, so I used these YouTube videos as my guide.

There are lots of tutorials for this binding, but I found these to be the clearest and easiest to follow.

Peacock Paisley Album 05Each two page spread in the album has room to mount photos, or hidden journaling tags in pockets, fold out pages, or flip pages.  Although this is not a large album in size, it can hold a tremendous number of photos.  I’ve used 3/8″ Jade Double Faced Satin Ribbon and Iridescent White Metallic String throughout the album.  The stamped images are all water colored with Distress Markers and a detail water brush.  The sentiments are hand written.

Peacock Paisley Album 14a

Here, I’ve used the Feathered Peacock stamp and emboss/resist technique to create a pocket page.  Photo mounts were cut with the Cut, Mat, Create dies and tucked into the pocket.  The chipboard pages are all made from an up-cycled corrugate cereal box, sanded, painted with Peacock Feathers Distress Paint and then sponged with Viva Decor Copper Stamp Paint.

Peacock Paisley Album 08I die cut the center from one of the card fronts and used it as the focal for this pocket page.

Peacock Paisley Album 15a

Here we have another pocket page, and a fun flip page for mounting photos.

Peacock Paisley Album 17

 

The page on the right opens to reveal a fun little flip album with a pocket at the back.  When the page turns…

Peacock Paisley Album 18aThere’s another pocket page with a fun fold out for photos.

Peacock Paisley26

 

I enjoyed watercoloring the beautiful stamps in this collection.

Peacock Paisley Album 22

 

Here’s another pocket page that folds open to reveal additional space for photos.

Peacock Paisley Album 19

 

You could add hidden journaling here or just mount photos.

Peacock Paisley Album 25The final page features another pocket with photo mount inserts.  And just look at that gorgeous paisley designer paper on the very last page.  Room for even more photos!

I think I managed to use every single stamp in this gorgeous collection, and lots and lots of the paper, too.  What do you see yourself making with these gorgeous goodies?

I’m so glad you stopped by today!  I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Cheerio,

Directions: Follow the Hidden Hinge Binding video tutorial at http://youtu.be/nUtkJ9u6M6w to create the hidden hinge binding.

Follow the tutorial at http://youtu.be/rjwelNWp33M to find directions for making the cover.

Make your cover from medium weight chipboard cut to measure 18 3/4″ x 5 3/8″. Score on the long side, 8″ in from each side and gently fold at the score line to create the spine for your album. Cut a 22″ x 8″ piece of white burlap and cover the album as shown in the cover video. Use the paisley paper to line the inside of the album. Add the metal corners.

For the hinge: Cut your cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5″ and assemble as shown in the video. Cut a 4 5/8″ x 7″ strip of handmade paper and line the spine of your cover as shown in the video. Punch 3 evenly spaced holes in the spine and insert the copper brads, as shown. Use Scor-Tape to insert the hinged binding into the album, as shown in the video.

Decorating the cover: I used the lace border die cut from gold metallic cardstock and layered it up with a framed card front and real peacock feathers. Stamp several sets of Delightful Daisies using all three colors of the Distress Ink. Heat Emboss, shape, paint with Distress Crackle paint and use throughout the album. Decorate your album cover as desired.

To Create the Inner Pages: Cut FOUR 7 1/2″ x 5″ rectangles from a corrugate cereal box (or use medium weight chipboard). Cut ONE 7 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ rectangle from the box. Sand the edges of the cereal box and then paint with Peacock Feathers Distress Paint. Tap the edges with Viva Décor Copper Stamp Paint. Once the pages are decorated, insert into the prepared hinge, following the instructions in the videos.

Cut TEN Night of Navy rectangles: 7″ x 4″. Cut SIX Night of Navy Rectangles: 7″ x 3 1/4″. Cut TEN White Parchment Rectangles: 6 3/4″ x 3 3/4″. Cut TEN tags from Pool Party Cardstock using the Luggage and Tags die. Die cut TWELVE photo mount panels using the 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ die from Cut, Mat, Create 2-B.

To create the pocket pages, cut a thumb hole in either the top or the side of one of your prepared panels. Glue onto your base panel so that one edge is left open on either the top, left or right hand side. Insert tags or photo mounts into the opening.

For the flip pages: Use three of the 7″ x 3 1/4” Night of Navy Rectangles to form flip pages. On the long side, score one panel at 6 1/2″. Score the next panel at 6″. Leave the third panel as is. Fold the rectangles along the score line and tuck each tab underneath the unscored panel, gluing them in place. Use the punch to create thumbholes on the right hand side of the first two panels. Decorate the edges with strips of paper from the collection. Glue onto the 7 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ corrugate panel.

For the fold out pages: Score one of the 7″ x 4″ Night of Navy panels at 6 1/2″. Fold along the score, and tuck the tab under the right hand side of another Night of Navy panel. Glue in place. Cut a thumb hole on the right hand side of your designer paper or stamped image and glue the top, bottom and left hand side onto the top Navy panel. Insert a journaling tag into the pocket. Add a matted border strip on the left. Open the navy panel and glue the white parchment panels inside the fold out page, and stamp as desired. Insert into the prepared album as shown.
