Hello friends. Just wanted to remind you to go vote for you favorite design team members to return to the Heartfelt Creations team for this next year. If you want to see me continue on the team, I would really love for you to vote! Here is a link to the blog post where you can find the link - Heartfelt Creations Blog. Thanks so much for all your help! This week, I have another card using the beautiful Flowering Dogwood collection. I kept my supplies really simple and watercolored the images. I find that so relaxing! It is really hard to capture it with the camera but I used a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle marker to blend all of my Aqua markers. It adds such a beautiful sheen!

Hello friends. Today Heartfelt Creations has a new release called Flowering Dogwood. But before I show you my first project using this beautiful collection, I would like to ask for your help. Heartfelt Creations just announced their 2017 Design Team Call. Not only do they want new designers but they keep some of the current design team members on the new team. I would really appreciate it if you would go and vote for me and your other favorite designers to stay on the new team. Here is a link to vote - http://hcgo.co/DesignTeamVote2017. I absolutely love working with Heartfelt Creations and hope you love my projects too! Now it's time to introduce you to the Flowering Dogwood Collection. It's time to usher in the spring season with the new Flowering Dogwood Collection! Immerse yourself in this newest springtime assembling of designer papers, divinely detailed cling stamps and coordinating dies steeped with beautiful meanings and symbolism perfect for the Easter Season! The dogwood tree is surrounded by a mesmerizing legend within the Christian faith…once the size of a mighty oak tree it was chosen to be used to construct the cross on which Jesus was to be crucified. The tree became unhappy with its purpose and would never again grow large enough to ever build another cross. Its branches would become narrow and crooked and no longer suitable for construction. The delicate dogwood flower itself is a wonderful symbol of the Easter season…four petals that resemble the shape of a cross, the center laid as a crown of thorns, at the tip of each petal an indent resembling nail punctures, and a reddish hue around those indents resembling the blood of Jesus. Soft and pastel in coloring, this newest paper collection reveals beautiful springtime shades of pinks, peaches, and greens which set stunning backdrops for scripted lettering and graceful swirls, while darker hints of blues and blacks bring out the gorgeous detail and coloring of the showy dogwood florals. Bountiful blossom filled branches, peaceful white doves and hillside chapels are just a few of the beautiful illustrations found within the cling stamp sets! Assemble the perfect dimensional dogwood flower using the varying sized petals within the Flowering Dogwood Cling Stamps Set and die cut using the coordinating dies. The ideal collection to send out springtime and Easter wishes to friends and family! Here is my project...... Products Used Designer Dries... Continue reading

Hello friends! Hope you had a good weekend! It time to think of love and chocolate. Well what I mean is it's almost time for Valentine's Day. So with that in mind, I created this fun card using the 7103N Button Heart stamp from Pink Ink Stamps. I just love this image! This card measure 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". To begin, I stamped the image onto white cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink pad. Using my patterned paper as a guide, I picked out the markers and cardstock for this card. This 6x6 patterned paper is from Pebbles and it's called My Funny Valentine. For the red cardstock panel, I used the Scallop Stitches wafer dies from Simon Says Stamp to add that stitched scalloped detail. I colored the image using my new Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens. These are the colors I used. Here is a close-up of the image. I fussy cut around the heart and then once I adhered it into place, I added some Crystal Stickles. The sentiment die is from the Queen & Co Heart Throb Kit. I think it turned out super cute! You can find this Button Heart stamp and all of the Pink Ink Stamps at Ellen Hutson.com. I have included links to the products I used for this card just for your information. These are not affiliate links. Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends. One card I can never have enough of is a birthday card. It seems like once a week or so sometimes! So the other day, I sat down at my crafty table and started making some birthday cards. Some of them are girly and some of the are more manly. This card I am showing you today is definitely girly and it was alot of fun to create! So I started this card by stamping and watercoloring some really cute flower images from the Sheena line at Crafter's Companion. I got these stamps before Christmas and didn't know how I was going to use them. I think they worked perfect for this card! I stamped them onto watercolor paper using brown Staz-on ink pad. Then I watercolored them using my Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers. I scribbled the marker onto my craft mat and used a watercolor brush to color these flowers. Once they were dry, I fussy cut them out. There was not a leaf image in this set, so I just colored one of the flowers green and used it as a leaf. The birthday sentiment is from Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Just For Men -Rock Star stamp set. I stamped it onto the strip of cardstock using embossing ink and sprinkled on some white embossing powder. After I heat set it, I cut the edge into a banner. I used some 3d foam squares to pop up the sentiment. The white panel was embossed using the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Floral Delight - Floral Swirls 6x6 embossing folder. I love how simple the card turned out. I am hoping that it won't require too much extra postage! Thanks for stopping by today. Here is a list of supplies I used with links for your information: Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Just For Men Rock Star Photopolymer Stamp Set Crafter's Companion Sheena Groovin' 60's - Bloomin' Sixties EZ-Mount Rubber Stamps Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Floral Delight Floral Swirls Embossing Folder Spectrum Aqua Watercolour Cardstock Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers - Crystal Clear, Harvest Moon, Aquamarine, Moonlight, Macaroon, Olive Jade watercolor brush white embossing powder, powder tool, embossing heat tool sequins 3d foam squares Continue reading

Hello friends! Today I have a project to share with you that uses some Crafter's Companion Die'sire Edge'ables dies. These dies are intricate and allow you to use them on the edge of a fold or edge of the paper for a "pop-up" style. Or you can cut out the die cut for a different look. Here is a card I created using two Die'sire Edge'ables that will be on HSN February 6. If you watch the Crafter's Companion spots you might even see my creation! As you can see, I used two of the Die'sire Edge'ables in two different ways. I used the Die'sire Edge'ables Classic Chandelier die on the top edge of the white panel of cardstock. Like I said these dies are really beautiful and intricate! I added some small pearls to the chandelier to give it alittle something! I also used the Die'sire Edge'ables Bride and Groom die. Instead of cutting it at the edge of the cardstock/fold, I die cut it from some Matt Mirror Cardstock and hand cut along the bottom of the die cut. I adhered the die cut onto some printed vellum. I also used the little accents dies from the Die'sire Edge'ables Classic Chandelier die on the edges of the white panel, too! Here is a closer look......... This card measures 5 x 7". I love how it turned out! Here is a list of supplies that I used: Die'sire Edge'ables Bride and Groom die Die'sire Edge'ables Classic Chandelier die Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Together Forever Printed Vellum Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Together Forever Luxury Matt Mirror Card Downton Abbey Papercrafting Collection - Pearls & Resin Flowers Crafter's Companion Premium Ultra Smooth White Cardstock Gemini Die Cutting and Embossing Machine Black Cardstock gray ribbon 3d foam squares Continue reading

Here is another look with the card open........ Products Used Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, 159723 Metal Tip for Adhesive Bottles, 352854 Memento Dye Ink Pad - Pistachio, TSMP706 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, HCST1-401 Fleur Border Basics Die, HCD1-7120 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Foldout Cards-White, HCCF1-443-2 Wildwood Florals Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3769 Wildwood Florals Die, HCD1-7125 Wildwood Cottage Paper Collection, HCDP1-274 Instructions Other Products: White cardstock; Victorian Velvet Distress Ink Pad; Nuvo Pink Champagne Glitter Drops; Scor-tape; 3d foam squares Watch this video https://youtu.be/wxX94X84kUo for tips on using foldout cards, shadowbox and the border basics dies.

Hello friends! This month, I want to start something new. Recently, I was introduced to the Simon Says Stamp Monthly kit by my good friend, Heidi Blankenship. Well, I am going to confess that Simon Says Stamp is fast becoming one of my go-to stores to purchase my favorite goodies. Being on design teams is so much fun but it can be alot of work. Like right now I have been busy creating things for the CHA - Creativation show in Phoenix next week. So to help my creativity, I took a few minutes to make something that is just for me or just for fun! So my goal is to post one or two projects a week that I make just for fun. I was hoping to do it on Friday......you know, Just For Fun Friday? But life got in the way as I was busy getting the house ready for a big ice storm that was coming in. We really did get quite a bit of ice so far.....so that trip to the store for toilet paper was a good idea! LOL Here are a couple of cards that I created Just For Fun! I used the Hey Love Stamp set with matching die and the Stacked Hearts die from Simon Says Stamp to create these cards! For this card, I used some Blushing Bride cardstock from Stampin' Up! to die cut the Stacked Hearts die and the background for the "love". I die cut the detail "love" using a scrap of glitter paper I had in my stash. For this card, I used the Scalloped Stitches edge dies for around the edge of the white layer. I added another Stacked Hearts die cut from some of the Blushing Bride paper. I stamped the sentiment from the Hey Love stamp set and using the "LOVE" dies again. I also tried out some spray adhesive........it worked well for the delicate Stacked Hearts die cut but I am not too sure about the smell! So what have you been working on just for fun? I will be trying to share something fun each week. I have to keep this fun or it's just a job......ya know? Thanks for stopping by! Continue reading

Hello Friends! Well the countdown is on....only 3 days until Christmas day. I have one more Christmas project to share with you. Every year, I make my family and friends an ornament. It has become somewhat of a tradition and I have already heard - "What are you making this year?" Well, I didn't come up with a new one......I used the same 3d Star Ornament svg cut files that I used last year. But this year I found this very cool Mercury Glass cardstock stack from DCWV. I just love the Mercury Glass look and thought this cardstock would make a great ornament. Here is my project..... I think I am going to add a small banner that says "Seyer Family Christmas 2016". I usually write something on the back but this year, I am kinda getting lazy! LOL I stamped the Sparkling Poinsettia flowers onto vellum cardstock using embossing ink. Then I sprinkled on the Gold Enchantment glitter embossing powder and heat set them. After I die cut them with the matching die, I shaped the flowers. I attached everything using hot glue and added a bow at the top. Here is a closer look.... Mercury Glass 3D Poinsettia Star Ornament HCPC-3680 Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set HCD1-766 Sparkling Poinsettia Die 242174 Heartfelt Creations 8.5 x 11 Vellum Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit Other Products: Kraft Cardstock; Mercury Glass 12 x 12 Cardstock (DCWV); Versamark Ink Pad; Nuvo Gold Enchantment Glitter Embossing Powder; Heat Tool; Gold Stickles; hot glue gun; Burgundy Satin/Chiffon Ribbon & Gold Cording; hole punch; Silhouette Cameo & 3d Star SVG Cut file; Scor-Tape These star ornaments measure 4 x 4 inches. To begin, I used my digital cutter and SVG cut file to cut out 3d stars from Kraft and Mercury Glass cardstock and assembled them. Then I stamped the poinsettia image onto vellum using Versamark ink pad. After I sprinkled on the glitter gold embossing powder, I heat set the images and die cut them out with the matching die. Using the flower shaping kit, I shaped the poinsettias and layered them to create one medium and one small for each star. Using the hot glue gun, I adhered the flowers into place on my stars. I added the gold glitter stickles to the middle of the poinsettias. I punched a hole in one point of the star and added some gold cording. I... Continue reading

Hello friends! I have just a few more cards to share with you. I have to say that this Christmas season, I have made more Christmas cards than I have ever made. Between my own cards, some commissioned cards and DT projects, I have made over 80 cards! Wow! That is a real record for me! So here are the last of the cards I made.....how many cards have you made this year? I think this one is my favorite. I really love the blue and silver color combo! I used dies from Tonic Studios for this card. Santa's Sleigh was cut from some silver matte cardstock and Entwining Trellis Die - Radient Roselily is the flower I used on this card. This card is made using the Color Layering Cardinal stamp and die set from Hero Arts. I also used my MISTI to make stamping those 3 layer Cardinals super easy. If you don't have a MISTI, I would say definitely put it on your Christmas list! This is my favorite of all the cards. I just really love the Gingerbread Man die from Tonic Studios. The patterned paper is from Stampin' Up! Well now that I have shared most of the cards I created for this Christmas season, I think it's time to move on to New Year's Eve and then on to Valentine's Day! LOL I would love to hear what you are working on now! Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello friends! Sorry I haven't been sharing my Christmas projects like usual but these last few days have been so very busy! So I thought I would just post some pictures of the cards I have been creating for my own cards and a few I created for some friends. Some of these you have seen different versions of but I think they are just different enough to give you some ideas. Here is my first and probably my favorite. I gave my MISTI tool a real workout stamping all those cardinal layers! My next card was created from supplies from the Simon Says Stamps December Kit. I just signed up to receive this kit and my first kit didn't disappoint me! Love everything in the kit! I have one more card to share. The first time I created this card, the card measured 6x6. I have a lot of trouble finding envelopes for this size card. I don't mind making one envelope for a card but refuse to make a bunch of envelopes just to mail out my cards! LOL So I resized my card to 5 1/4 x 5 1/4". It will still require extra postage but that is okay! I will have more cards to share with you in my next blog post. For now I am going to get busy making some cute ornaments for my book club ladies. I will be sharing these next week! Thanks for stopping by! Continue reading

Hello friends! Hope your week is going well so far.....here it's pretty cold but I am not complaining. Maybe if the weather stays cold for awhile my allergies will finally calm down! Oh well, at least I have had plenty of time to create Christmas cards. So I have a few projects to share with you. The first project is a photo tutorial on making your Christmas cards assembly-line style. You can find all the instructions, pictures and supplies used on the Tonic Studios USA blog HERE! Hope you enjoy! Here is another project I created to send to our family and friends. For your convenience, I have included affiliate links to the products I used. This just means that when you click on the link and purchase a product, I get a small percentage. It doesn't cost you anything and it helps me to pay for my blog and such! I thought this was another fairly simple card that would be perfect to send to family and friends. I used Tonic Studios Header Fold Die Set - Tangled Holly. I used it upside down...you can also use it to create the top of the card, right at the fold. It's a pretty neato die! I stamped the sentiment onto some vanilla cardstock using Versamark ink and dusted it with Tonic Studios Nuvo Gold Enchantment Glitter Embossing Powder. It's gold and glittery! I used the Tonic Studios Mixed Edge Layering Ovals to die cut the sentiment and to die cut the red scalloped oval. The best thing about the Mixed Edge Layering Ovals from Tonic is that the scalloped and classic edges come in one die set! It is quite a great value! The beautiful ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. The base of the card is Kraft cardstock and I used some scraps of gold cardstock I had in my scrap box. Making Christmas cards is a great time to pull out the scrap box and clean it out! Hope I gave you some more ideas for your Christmas cards! I still have a Facebook Event open called Christmas Card Showcase. I put up pictures of card sets I have for sale. If you want to check it out, comment below and I will add you to the event. It's not too late! Continue reading

Hello friends! Did you finally recover from Thanksgiving? I know it took me a couple of days to get back into the swing of things. All of my kids were home for the holiday.....they ended up being here for a whole week. So I took plenty of time to visit and just be with everyone! Well now that Thanksgiving is over, it is time to get serious about my Christmas card making. So today I sat down and started to create some cards because you know I get bored making all of the same card! Here is one I made today....... I used a set from Hero Arts called Coloring Layering Cardinal. I bought it in a bundle that included the matching die set from Scrapbook.com. I really love this cardinal. You can get the dimension that makes it look so good because there are 3 layers of stamps. I started with a pink ink, the second layer was stamped with a crimson and the final layer was a dark red. I stamped the eye/beak detail using black ink. The branches were stamped in brown. The pine leaves were stamped in olive and pear inks. I die cut the Cardinal out using the matching die and popped it up using 3d foam squares. I kept the rest of the card pretty simple, just adding the peace and love sentiment banner and the gold ribbon. What do you think? I love how it turned out and the most important thing is that my hubby loves it too! LOL He didn't like my first version.....oh well! Can't wait to share with you some other cards I created. The rest of this week and next week I will have plenty to share! Thanks for stopping by today! Supplies Used: includes affliate links Coloring Layering Cardinal Stamp & Die Bundle - Hero Arts Crimson Hybrid Ink - Hero Arts Rhubarb Stalk Memento Luxe Ink Pad - Tsukineko Soft Pink Dye Ink Pad - Hero Arts Old Olive & Pear Pizzaz Ink Pads - SU!
