It's Looking Like a Country Christmas with Amazing Paper Grace...


 Hello My Friends! It's so great to see you!

I've been busy doing some Christmas card creating with one of the releases from the Holiday Medley Collection by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace! I decided to go "country" for this make...and I really do love how it turned out! 



Do you ever see a die for the first time and have an idea pop into your head that you just have to try? That was me with the Merry Filigree Card Builder! You see that tiny little holly and berry die? Well, I got ambitious and decided to make a wreath using it and the small florals from the current October Die of the Month - the Flourished Fleurit! I thought it would be the perfect way to outline and draw attention to that gorgeous die cut sentiment!


To make it super quick and easy, I opted to die cut the solid base of the holly from white card stock...this way I could ink the berries in Ranger Archival Ink - Vermillion, and the leaves in Ranger Archival Ink - Leaf Green. I then die cut the overlay of the holly/berries from white card stock and and adhered it over top the solid colored version. Lastly, I die cut a gold solid version and applied it slightly skewed off the back of the holly die cut so that each of these little pieces would shimmer gold from the behind. The petite flowers and leaves were die cut from solid color card stock which added a touch of different colors and textures to the wreath! A tiny pearl center was all these little flowers needed to finish them off!



I decided that I was going to create a 5"x7" card this go round...but you can easily see how this idea could have worked on a slimline or A2 sized card as well! I chose a rustic country themed paper that I had in my stash and decided that the beautiful framing pieces would look so elegant die cut and layered in gold and white card stock. So that's what I did...a country creation can be ramped up a notch too can't it? I did however have to stick to the traditional twine bow as the finishing touch to keep it a little more rustic! 



I just can't believe how fast this card came together! I love that you can use the builder pieces to create a quick yet elegant background!


I'd love to hear what you think of today's share! Please feel free to leave your comments below!

Take your Craft Creations off the Page with the Tea Time Collection...


Hello and Welcome my friends!

I hope that you are keeping well wherever you are in blogland! We've been enjoying such a beautiful fall season...the weather has been amazing!


Today I wanted to share my latest Heartfelt Creations project with you with the gorgeous Tea Time Collection! I just love the idea of putting on a tea party with this collection....so today I thought we would go "off the page" and create some adorable cupcake picks!



These cupcake pics were so much fun to create!

I stamped the images onto white card stock and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder to give them that extra elegance factor! I quickly and easily colored them up with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The coordinating dies make these images so easy to cut out!



I created the small rosettes from patterned paper in the Tea Time Paper Collection...they were created from a strip of paper measuring 1 1/2" x 12" and scored every 1/2". They've then been fan folded, the last fold cut off so the mountain and valley pattern can continue and then adhered end to end. You then push down in the center of the rosette so it comes together and adhere it together with a circular piece of card stock on the front and back of the rosette. I've gone ahead and used hot glue to add my toothpic to the back of the the rosette at this point. Then comes the fun part of decorating your cupcake topper! 



I've used a doily like die cut from the Butterfly Dreams Collection from Heartfelt Creations called the Butterfly Kisses Decorative Die! I've die cut one from Luxe Gold Card Stock, and one from plain white card stock...offset them slightly to one another so they both show and then adhered them off to one side of the rosette. This was a great way to add a feminine feel to the project as well as hide the toothpic on the backside. I then started layering my little scene on the front of the rosette. I've gone ahead and added some foam tape to the tea cups so they stand off the front of the tea pots. This gives your rosette beautiful dimension. 


Then came the adorable little flowers! I've used the Tweet Cherry Blossoms Cling Stamp Set, the coordinating dies, and 3D shaping mold...which made creating these little beauties quick and easy! A hint of glitter and some prills for the centers finished off these little blossoms!


I do hope you've enjoyed today's share! I'd love to know what you think! I know I would certainly love being invited to a tea party that was showcasing such fun and beautiful cupcake embellishments!


Until next time...



 

Introducing the Amazing Paper Grace October 2021 Die of the Month - The Flourished Fleurit...



Elegance is our go-to style at Amazing Paper Grace.  We are always on the hunt for those elegant elements that you can add to a card that gives it just the right feel and appeal.  This month we're head over heels for a year around a cascade of tendrils that can be snipped here and there to be used for top and bottom card decoration.  Say welcome to the Amazing Paper Grace October 2021 Die of the Month - Flourished Fleurit.
 
The inspiration for Flourished Fleurit comes from looking through our stashes for just the right Rectangle or just the right Square.  Guess what - Flourished Fleurit can be both.  A snip here or a snip there puts give is just the right proportion to be a rectangle or a square.  We cleverly added in sprigs of flowers so that you can cover your transitions.  Hunting for elegant corners for a slimline - look no further.  A slip or two has you covered.
 
 Here are some ideas that might inspire you to create:
 
 1.  Snip between all four corners for slimline decoration
 2.  Snip between the connecting rod and cinch for a square
 3.  Cut as a rectangle for a beautiful A7 layout with many options.
 

**dies for my designs today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace**


There are 9 dies included in the Flourished Fleurit.
 

 
My Project Today using Flourished Fleurit.

When I saw this beautiful assembling of dies, the first thing that popped into my head was that these beautiful flourishes would be perfect for a Thanksgiving card...as you know we are celebrating Thanksgiving Day here in Canada next week! 
And for me, flourishes definitely call for some vintage styling...so I dug deep into my vintage paper stash and got busy creating in some fall colors that may be a little non traditional for the Thanksgiving holiday season!


While this die really speaks to a beautiful landscape card design, I decided to switch things up and create a tent fold card to give it some additional flair! I cut two pieces of cream colored card stock...one 5"x7" and the second one I added a half inch to the top so I would be able to score a fold at that 1/2" mark...this was I was able to marry the two pieces of card stock together easily as I formed a hinge on top. 

Next I used the basic outline die of the Flourished Fleurit and die cut a shaped card base from the base that I had just created! Then the fun part started...I got down to the layering!


I die cut the decorative background paper to match the shape of the card and left the center solid so the paper would show fully and completely. Next I cut a brown colored frame to fill in the corners of the card...then of course came the beautiful flourishes...I die cut them from a soft turquoise patterned paper that matched the flowers on the background paper and a second identical die cut from some gold card stock. I off set the two flourished pieces slightly while adhering them together so that the gold shimmer would peek through. 

I used that gorgeous center die cut from the collection as an embellishment behind my sentiment which I fussy cut from my paper collection. I then adhered it to some gold card stock to match the pretty shimmer in the flourishes and fussy cut around it leaving a pretty edge. 

I decided to die cut my flowers from the same cream colored card stock I'd used for the card base and then inked them up to get the exact shade of red I was wanting! A deep green cardstock was perfect for the budding branches! 

While creating this card, I quickly came up with another idea that I wanted to try!
It led to a second project!


...and here's my second project featuring the Flourished Fleurit...
an adorable little note card that is simply made by folding the full base of the die in half! Wouldn't this also make a great Thanksgiving name place setting for the table just by swapping out the sentiment for the guest's name!?!? Or even an adorable gift card holder!?!?
I love it when dies are so versatile and easy to create multiple projects with!

I decorated the notecard with the background and flourishes the same way that I would have the larger version...I just left out the brown matting layer so the cream paper would show through on the notecard instead. Once I had all of the flourish die cuts added, I went ahead and folded the notecard in half and gave it a really good firm scoring with a heavy weight bone folder. 


I went ahead and fussy cut another sentiment from the retired Authentique paper collection I was using and then created a small cluster of flowers to go around it! I love how these autumn themed cards came together! I hope you do too!

Designer Tip: when die cutting the small flowers from the Flourished Fleurit die collection, die cut them from small scraps of white or cream colored cardstock you have building up in your stash...this way you can ink the edges in any color you choose to have them coordinate with your project...and you've whittled away at the ever mounting pile of small bits of paper!


**dies for my designs today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace**


Paper: Authentique (unknown/retired); dark green cardstock;cream colored card stock
Ink: Ranger Archival Ink - Vermillion

An Exciting Announcement...

 Hello and Welcome my Friends!


I have some exciting news to share with you today! It's a little secret I've been sitting on for a few weeks...and I'm so happy to finally be able to announce that I've been asked to join the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Design Team!



I have been an admirer of Becca Feeken's work for many many years...her beautiful stamps, dies, and creations are absolutely amazing and make putting together elegant cards so quick and easy!

Debuting the NEW Rustic Sunflower Collection from Heartfelt Creations

 Hello and Welcome!

I'm so glad you're able to join me today!


It's been a crazy week with my daughter starting her fulltime job (it's still crazy to think that she graduated just a few months ago), and Grade 11 starting for our son! It's been super quiet in the house with everyone gone!


It's also been a new release week with Heartfelt Creations! Wednesday marked the unveiling of the NEW Rustic Sunflower Collection, and today I did a new release live on the Heartfelt Creations FB Page featuring this newest flower!


Now, if you know me, you know that I love love love sunflowers! When I applied for the HC design team, it was actually the Classic Sunflower Collection that I was sent to work with! I'm super excited to see another sunflower collection since the Classic Sunflower has since been retired!



The color palette in this newest paper collection is absolutely amazing....and I knew that I wanted to use that gorgeous teal colored patterned paper with some bright yellow sunflowers! 

I thought I'd keep it simple and just cluster some dimensional flowers onto some of the gorgeous stamped sunflower accents to build two lovely clusters! 



I've stamped these sunflowers in Ranger Archival Ink - Coffee to give them a softer appearance. I've colored them with a selection of Archival Inks ...Buttercup, Sunflower and Monarch Orange. The leaves have been colored with a blending of Ranger Archival - Leaf Green and Olive! I love how they turned out! For the centers I wanted something rustic looking so I've used the Redland Elements! I've used one of the accent flowers from the Wild Aster Spray Cling Stamp Set to give my clusters a bit of a light and airy feeling! I love how these floral clusters turned out! Don't you?



You'll notice that I've kept the background of the card super simple...just two different colors for background mats and then a pretty oval center that has been framed with a pretty decorative die cut from the Royale Elegance Frames Die! I've opted to not add a sentiment to this card as that way I can give it as is, or add a sentiment for the occasion for which I'll be gifting the card!


I do hope you've enjoyed today's share! 

Feel free to leave me a comment! I'd love to know what you think of today's creation!


And, just in case you missed today's livestream and are wondering how to recreate this card, you can find it here!


Until next time...




Revealing the NEW Festive Poinsettia Collection from Heartfelt Creations

 Good Morning, Afternoon, Evening!


 I'm so glad that you're able to join me today! It's been awhile since we've met here in blogland hasn't it! I've missed connecting here on the blog, so I thought it might be fun to try to be more consistent here and share some crafty creations with you!

 

I've been spending some time in the craft room thinking about Christmas! Are you someone who likes to have your holiday cards completed before December...or are you a bit of a procrastinator like me? 


Well, the NEW Festive Poinsettia Collection from Heartfelt Creations has finally arrived...and I just couldn't resist making some vellum poinsettias with it!



The sizing on this newest poinsettia is absolutely amazing and will work beautifully for any size card you're wanting to create as there are a great selection of sizes for you to create with! I wanted to keep things quick and EZ, so I've used a piece of the decorative paper from the paper collection to create a background mat and then have used the Courtyard Elegance Die to add some interest and texture to the card!




The poinsettias have been created using Rajni Chawla's Flowerite Vellum...a beautiful heavy weight vellum that's perfect for all of your flower shaping needs! I've stamped the images in White VersaColor Ink and have sprinkled it with Stampendous White Embossing Powder and then heat set it with my heat tool! I've colored the flowers from the back using Ranger Archival Ink and have then shaped them using the 3D Festive Poinsettia Shaping Mold!



I've given the flowers an extra hint of glamour by adding some gold colored stamens in several sizes! The gold color stamens will blend in nicely with the Luxe Gold Card Stock I've used for the sentiment die cut backing! You'll notice that the larger Rose Hip Stamens work beautifully in all sizes of the poinsettias that were created for this project, while the smaller pearl stamens add some interest and texture to the flower centers!


The finishing touch and the icing on the cake has to be the gorgeous sparkle from the glitter I used! I opted to sparkle the different poinsettia layers with Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear! It's an amazing glitter that adds such a wow factor to your flowers. I've simply used a paint brush to apply the Dries Clear Adhesive to the layers in the poinsettia one by one and have sprinkled the glitter on before moving to the next layer!


I love how this card came together...it's so soft when you see it in person! The various die cut elements and swirling accents give it such an airy feel...and it's not the run of the mill holiday card! It will certainly stand out among the rest that stand on the mantle during the holiday season!


If vellum flowers are something that have intimidated you or you have questions about how to create these soft and romantic poinsettias, feel free to catch the replay of the live stream here... where I shared all of my favorite tips and tricks to creating these beauties...from what type of vellum to use, which ink and embossing powder to minimalize flaking, as well as shaping and assembling techniques! It's the perfect recipe for success and beautiful results when working with vellum each and every time!


I'd love to hear what you think about this card as well, so please do feel free to leave a comment below!

Documenting Memories with the Insta Album from Heartfelt Creations...

Hello There!
I'm so glad we get to spend some time together today...it's been a long while hasn't it!

Today I'm sharing my daughter's Sweet 16 Album with you...it's only been a year in the making...I like most scrapbookers am behind in my memory keeping!

I opted to use the 8"x8" Insta Album base from Heartfelt Creations...they have a larger 12"x12" version available as well, but I thought the smaller one would be perfect for this occasion! And, of course I had to use the Sugarspun Collection...how could you not for a Sweet 16!

...here's a peek of the cover...


I hauled out this album again to work on as I wanted to showcase how easy this system is to use in one of my live streams for Heartfelt Creations. You can find the replay here! If you catch the replay, you'll be able to see all of the different pockets and different pages that I've incorporated into the album on the go! This is a fantastic way to get a small album done in a short amount of time and still have it hold a significant number of photos!

...and here's a pic of the inside of the album...and some of the pages that I had completed previously...


I love that you can add tuck spots and pockets throughout this album...and that all of the measurements have been added for you for layering the papers...and of course the magnet placements! It takes all of the complicated thinking out of the creation and just allows you to get to the fun of the decorating process!

I've chosen to use the Cherry Blossom flowers from the Cherry Blossom Retreat Collection. I think that they are the perfect blossom to compliment the cupcake illustrations!

I do hope you've enjoyed the project I've shared today and have found yourself inspired to grab those special family photos and get them documented as well!

Until next time...

Introducing the Cottage Garden Collection from Heartfelt Creations...

Hello! I'm so glad you're here!
Are you ready to take a walk with me through a gorgeous cottage garden filled with big, bold and robust hydrangeas? I don't know about you, but I love hydrangea flowers! They are so light, airy and beautiful! You are going to just fall in love with the new Cottage Garden Collection! The colors are so soothing and the illustrations are divine!

I love that Heartfelt Creations has made this gorgeous blossom so easy to recreate...and I especially love the hydrangea stamped illustrations making it so very easy to create a gorgeous flower! 

For my share today, I opted to use the mid sized hydrangea blossom to make a brooch!
I stopped in at Michael's craft store and picked up some silver jewelry stamping discs and some brooch/pin backs. I roughed up the back of the disc and adhered the pin to the back of it using the strong E6000 adhesive. 

I die cut 5 of the mid sized hydrangea flower from a sturdy white card stock, and then 1 from a silver paper. I adhered all of these together to create the base for the brooch...with the silver being on the backside where you will want to adhere the pin disc. Using the E6000 adhesive, I've then adhered the pin disc to the back of the start of the brooch. 

...here's a pic of how the base came together...


Next, I stamped two of the hydrangea illustrations onto a sturdy white card stock with Versamark ink, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and then heat set it with my heat tool. 

Using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper, I then stamped the smallest hydrangea petal images 4 times, again with Versamark ink, and proceeded to heat emboss them with silver embossing powder as well.

Grabbing my Stack and Store Daubers, I turned to coloring the image and the flower petals. For the flower petals and the portion of floral hydrangea image, I added a light base coat of Ranger Archival Ink - Cactus Flower and then added a hint of Ranger Archival Ink -Pink Peony over top. I used the same color combination to one of the base hydrangeas. 

Next, I colored up the leaves using a combination of Ranger Archival Ink - Olive and Ranger Archival Ink - Leaf Green on both stamped images. All illustrations and petals are now ready to be die cut with the coordinating die.

For a hint of color on just a few of the edges of the hydrangea petals, I opted to add just a touch of Ranger Archival Ink - Deep Purple. Once this was completed, I added them to the 3D Hydrangea Shaping Mold and shaped the flowers easily!

Then came time to add the main image to the brooch front. Using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, I added the colored image to the brooch, and began adding the small blossoms to build my hydrangea with my hot glue gun!

...are you ready to see how it turned out...

  
I love how the silver embossing gives it a metal like look as that of a real brooch. I've added silver prills to the centers of all of the little flowers again mimicking the look of metal on a real brooch. 

Next, I added some shimmer to the petals with some Designer Dries Clear Adhesive and some Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter. I brushed some adhesive onto the stem and leaves and then sprinkled them with glitter as well...this dulled the greens I had used to color the foliage, but again gave the brooch the metallic look I was looking for. I then set the project aside to give it time to dry fully before finishing.

You'll notice that I have extra leaves on the brooch and that they don't quite line up with the other stamped image I've used. This is where the second stamping of the illustrations comes in. I snipped of the the flower and wanted to use just the foliage to finish off the brooch. I used a spritz of water and my Deluxe Flower Shaping tool to shaped the leaves ever so slightly. Using the E6000 adhesive, I then lined up the stems of the foliage to go over top the front image, but added just a small amount at the base of the leaf - at the stem - and then pushed them off center slightly to give it a unique look and keep the dimension of the leaves. Next, I added some glitter accents on the leaves to blend in alongside the hydrangea blossom. Again, at this point you will need to set the project aside to dry completely before moving on to the finishing steps.

Lastly, I wanted to the layers of white paper along the edges of the brooch to be less visible, so I used a small silver ink pad to ink over all of the edges so they would blend in more with the silver embossing. Then to give the brooch an extra shine and some strength, I covered it all with Crystal Clear Lacquer! I am super happy with how it turned out!

I do hope you've enjoyed what I've shared with you today!

Showstopping Calla Lilies...

Good Morning, Afternoon, or Evening depending on where you are visiting from!
I'm so glad you've been able to join me today!

Have you seen the new Calla Lily Collection from Heartfelt Creations?
It's absolutely breathtaking!


I've recently done a Facebook Live where I shared how easily these regal calla lilies come together!
If you missed the live, you can catch the replay here!

 The Calla Lily Collection truly is multipurpose as it's ideal for any occasion...from weddings, to Valentine's day, to birthdays, as well as sympathy condolences....this collection along with these stunning florals have you covered! It's also perfect to mix and match with other florals!

...let's take a peek at how this project turned out...


For this latest project, I opted to use one of the delightful swan illustrations along with the smaller bunched calla lily illustrations...and of course those elegant shaped flowers. 

 When I think of calla lilies, I usually think bridal...as they were super popular for weddings back in the day when I worked at the florist shop! I wanted to keep that kind of feel for this card, so I opted to use lots of lacy layers!

I've used the Rounded Window Frame Die that was released on Black Friday with both white card stock as well as the new Luxe Gold Cardstock! I've also used a favorite from the pocket dies...the Ornate Pocket Accents Die. These fanciful and intricate dies are perfect for creating super elegant backgrounds quickly and easily!

I do hope you've enjoyed today's share!

Until next time...

Creating Gorgeous Scenes with the Wilderness Retreat Collection...

Hello and Welcome!
It's so hard to believe that we're in December already, isn't it!
Are you ready for the holiday season? 

Today I wanted to share one last card with you created with the Wilderness Retreat Collection from Heartfelt Creations!

This is a small A2 size card, and comes together very quickly and easily once you have all of your images colored! I've chosen to use Zig Markers to watercolor my images, but you could use blendable pencils as well and achieve an equally gorgeous result!

...here's how the card turned out...


 I opted to cut a white mat for my card background using the Eyelet Rectangle & Basics Die.
I've then cut an oval into the mat using the Eyelet Oval & Basics Large Die. Next I have created the background sky by using the nesting die the next size down of the ovals from the Eyelet Oval & Basics Small Die and a sky like piece of patterned paper from the Wilderness Retreat Paper Collection. These two collections of dies nest together beautifully, and you'll always have the perfect size oval on hand for all of your paper projects! 

I've stamped all of my illustrations onto a mixed media paper using Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black, as I wanted to watercolor them using my Zig Real Brush Markers. If you love to color, you will absolutely love this collection! I've stamped the cottage illustration from the Create a 'scape Backcountry Cling Stamp Set twice as I knew I wanted to die cut some elements from it to add some more dimension to the card. I stamped the Create a 'scape Trout Lake Cling Stamp Set once as I wanted to use some of the trees from the scene to add to the card scene I was building. I also stamped the cattails and the rocky ground from the Trout Lake Cling Stamp Set as well so I could add those elements to the front of the card giving it a scene with more depth. Lastly, I stamped the eagle and the duck illustrations from the Create a 'scape Nature Cling Stamp Set.

I've then die cut the the cottage illustration with just the outline die and have then used an oval to cut the rest of the image to release from the paper. From the second stamping of the cottage die, I've die cut the tree to use as an extra added embellishment. Don't throw away any of the rest of the colored illustration...you'll be able to store those to have on hand when you have another card to make!

Next, I've die cut the trees from the Trout Lake image and have trimmed them off the rest of the scene as needed so I could use them in the background. I've then die cut all of the other elements with the coordinating dies. 

And now the scene building fun can begin!
I attached the sky like oval to the center of the card as shown, while positioning the front card mat over top to make sure that it would all line up well. Then I've added the duck scene, making sure not to adhere the ducks all the way down, so they would appear that they are flying off of the page. Moving over to the other side of the scene, I've added in the treeline from the Trout Lake illustration. Once happy with all the placements, I've adhered the white mat over top of the card base using dimensional foam tape. 

Now begins the scene building on the front of the card!
I've adhered the cottage illustration to the card base using dimensional foam tape. I've popped up the single tree I die cut from the second cottage illustration just slightly off to the side of the other one to give the cabin a more treed in feeling. I've adhered the cattails to the bottom of the scene as shown, and have then snipped a portion of the rocky ground to layer beside, slightly overlapping the cattails. Lastly, I've added the soaring eagle to the top corner as shown using dimensional foam tape as well.

To complete the scene, I chose a preprinted sentiment from the paper collection and adhered it to the top corner opposite the eagle, and using a Designer Dries Clear Adhesive I've added some Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter to the eagles wings, as well as the cattails and the rocky ground die cuts!

This gorgeous collection is perfect for creating those had to make masculine cards and is sure to wow the men in your life...but don't worry, the ladies will love all of the creations you make with this collection as well!

I recently did a Facebook Live with this collection, showcasing how quickly and easily these scenes come together...and how easy it is to create an A2 sized card that is still dimensional and ideal for sending through snail mail. You can also bundle several of these note cards together to make a wonderful gift for someone who has everything! They'll love having beautiful cards on hand to gift to their friends and loved ones!

With the stunning images and coordinating die cuts within the Wilderness Retreat Collection, the scene building possibilities are almost endless!
