Heartfelt Creations March 2021 Alumni Hop

Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilac Tea Time Tea Party in a Box Card by Kathy Clement

Heartfelt Creations March 2021 Alumni Hop: Lush Lilac Tea Time Party in a Box Card

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations March 2021 Alumni Hop!  The hop starts here and lasts until 11:55PM EDT on Monday, March 29th.  Today I have combined two of my favorite Heartfelt Creations springtime collections: Lush Lilac and Tea Time.  The end result is this Lush Lilac Tea Time Party in a Box Slimline Card.

Tea Time Under the Lilacs

Wouldn’t you just love to have tea out under the lilacs?  Here’s how this sweet card came together.

  • First, score an 8 1/2″ x 11 sheet of lilac cardstock on the long side at 4 1/4″, 4 3/4″, 9 1/2″ and 9 3/4″.  Fold to form a top fold card base with 1/2″ spines on the top and bottom.
  • Stamp, die cut, shape, ink and layer a whole bunch of lilac blossoms from the Lush Lilac collection.  Brush the petals with Dries Clear Adhesive and sprinkle with Crystal Clear Glitter.
  • Now add a bit of adhesive to the center of each lilac and fill with Minnie Pearls Prills.
  • Next, cut an 8 1/8″ x 4 1/8″ panel of gingham paper from the Tea Time Collection for the front of the card.
  • Then die cut the Eyelet Lace Frame from white cardstock.  Cut it in half from side to side, then overlap the edge on the gingham pattern so that it fits the card base.
  • Now die cut 3 tea pots, tea cups and tea bag from the Tea Time paper pad.  Back these with dimensionals and adhere along the front of the card.  Decorate with the prepared lilac blossoms.

A Peek Inside

Create a box pocket inside the card.  (You can watch this video to see how to do this.)

Gift wrap tea bags, chocolate, cookies, and a honey pouch to tuck into the box pocket.  Use your paper scraps from Lush Lilac and Tea Time to do this.  Create a tiny note card as well.  Then tuck in a demitasse spoon and honey dipper to complete the Tea Party in a Box.

On With the Hop!

Be sure to visit all the blogs in the hop and leave some love behind in the form of a sweet comment.  Comment before 11:55 PM EDT on Monday, March 29th. One lucky comment will be randomly selected from a mystery blog to receive a $25 gift card to Heartfelt Creations!

The winner will be announced only on the Heartfelt Creations Blog and Facebook page on Wednesday, March 31st.  So be sure to check to see if you are the lucky winner!  The winner will have 72 hours to claim the prize by writing [email protected]. Be sure to write “Winner of the March 2021 Alumni Hop” in the Subject line of your email.

Now let’s get hopping!

Happy World Card Making Day Giveaway!

Happy World Card Making Day Giveaway!  Brand New Button Farm Card Club Kit Reveal

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to my Happy World Card Making Day Giveaway and Button Farm Card Club Kit Reveal!  As an avid cardmaker, I love this day dedicated to the creative pursuit of the handmade card.  What could be a more perfect time to reveal my latest Button Farm  Card Club Kit?  This quarter we are celebrating the glorious colors and patterns of autumn with Authentique Paper’s vibrant Splendor Paper Collection.

 

Lots and Lots and Lots of Cards for World Card Making Day

I’ve put together a wonderful assortment of greeting card designs for this kit.  Here’s a peek at the different styles we’ll be making this quarter.

Sunflowers!  My favorite bloom!  So we’ll be making these cheery sunflower shaker cards.

Designing these Buckle and Flap cards was so much fun!  Wait ’til you see how they function in the reveal video below.

I can see about a dozen different ways to use these “Party in a Box” Pocket Cards.  You can customize these by adding your favorite treats and wee gifts to the box pocket.  How fun is that?

You’ll “Fall” in love with these Slimline Belly Band Cards.

Do you know what happens when you take a standard 4×6 card base and score it in a unique way?  You get a trio of totally adorable Tab Top Card Folios.  These would make wonderful place cards on your Thanksgiving table, too!

Good things come in small packages.  And these darling Tag Shaped Pocket cards are really good!  You get a fussy cutting tutorial when we make these sweet cards.

This Sunburst Thanksgiving Card might just be my favorite of all the designs in this kit.  For one thing, it’s just as cute as it can be.  For another, the design is a great way to use up all those pretty little scraps of your designer paper.

And you knew I would have to include a card folio, didn’t you?  This trifold design has a lovely hidden pocket panel inside as well as lots of room for fall photos.

That’s a total of 15 cards and 8 unique card designs!  And once you learn how to make these card bases, you’ll have that knowledge locked up in your crafty toolbox to use over and over again.

If you’d like to see these cards in action as well as take a closer look at the goodies in this kit, please enjoy this short reveal video.

Splendor Card Club Kit Details

If you would like to purchase this all-inclusive kit, the price is only $53.99.  The Club Subscription Kit price is even lower…only $48.59!  That’s about $3.25 per card, which is an amazing deal.

From My Heart to Yours

When I started this blog in 2013, I had no idea the adventures that lay ahead.  It kind of takes my breath away when I look back at how amazing it’s all been.

I’ve had the honor to design for some of the best companies in the business: Authentique Paper, Graphic 45, Heartfelt Creations, The Button Farm Club and Really Reasonable Ribbon, Little Birdie Crafts, Petaloo Flowers…just to mention a few.  I am so grateful for the opportunities that have come my way…and all because I like to play with pretty paper!

Then, there’s each of you.  Wow, my heart is just so full.  I’ve had the chance to get to know many of you on a more personal level and some of you have become dear friends.  All because of paper.  It’s really amazing.

So, thank you.  From the bottom of my heart for taking the journey with me, for encouraging me with your sweet comments, for your patronage in my Etsy shop, for all of it.  My life is full to overflowing with joy and gratitude.

I wish each one of you a very Merry Christmas and a blessed and Happy New Year.  May the joy of creativity be your portion, and may you always find the courage to follow your dreams.  I’m so glad I did!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy
