Hello Friends! You know what day it is, it's Wednesday and that means it is time for another Heartfelt Creations project. This week, I tried a new-to-me fancy fold. This week I created a Bendi card. I have seen a bunch of these very neat cards and decided I would give it a try. I will say that I used an SVG cut file for my Silhouette to create my Bendi card because it also has an envelope you can create for this unique card. If you don't have a digital cutter, you can easily create this card. Just google the Bendi Card technique and you will find many sizes and ways of creating this card. Here is my card for this week.... Here is a closer look........ Products Used Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, 159723 Metal Tip for Adhesive Bottles, 352854 Memento Dye Ink Pad - Toffee Crunch, TSMP805 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, HCST1-401 Regal Borders and Pockets Die, HCD1-779 Classic Rose Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3752 Classic Rose Vines Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3753 Classic Rose Die, HCD1-7110 Classic Rose Vines Die, HCD1-7111 Classic Rose Paper Collection, HCDP1-270 Instructions Products: Burgundy and white cardstock; Victorian Velvet Distress ink, Old Olive ink pad; sponges; Silhouette Cameo digital cutter, SVG Cut File: Bendi Card, craft knife, scor-tape Watch this video https://youtu.be/Z8P070kC3oo to learn how to create dimensional roses with the Classic Rose Collection. Watch this video for tips on using decorative border dies https://youtu.be/Ms-PmK7svGI. Instructions: Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". To begin, I used a SVG cut file for a Bendi card that included an envelope that the card would fit in. (If you don’t have a digital cutter, Silhouette, Cricut, etc., you can google the Bendi card and find all kinds of different sizes.) Once my bendi card pieces were cut, I set them aside. For the top edge of the bendi card, I die cut a regal borders dies from burgundy card. I adhered that into place as shown. Then I die cut another of the regal borders die from the burgundy cardstock and then I trimmed the border so that it would fit the middle portion of the card as shown. Once those borders where adhered into place, I covered my 3 sections of the card with patterned paper from the collection. I used 2 - 6" x 6" panels that are included in the collection for...

Hello friends! I know I skipped yesterday because it's always Heartfelt Creations on Wednesday but today is another day in my series of Creating for Men! Today I have a fun masculine card I created using Tonic Studios products along with more of the BARC Cherry Wood Paper from ARC Crafts. My card today uses the 73E Silhouette Scenes Groom Die Set. I am not making a wedding card but I thought that the silhouette of the groom would be perfect for a masculine birthday card. What do you think? This card measures 6x6”. To create this card, I cut a piece of 12 x 12” black cardstock in half and folded it to create the base. I cut a piece of white cardstock to 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 “. Then I got busy die cutting! First I die cut the groom silhouette from black cardstock. Using the Tonic Funky Glue pen, I coated just the groom portion of this die cut and sprinkled on Nuvo 706N Charcoal Glitter. I also die cut another portion of the 73E Silhouette Scenes Groom die set from the BARC Cherry Wood Paper. Behind this die cut, I added a piece of newsprint paper. Once my groom was dry, I started assembling the card. I added some white/black twine around the cherry wood die cut and then adhered it in the middle of the white cardstock. Then I glued the groom on the left side of the cherry wood die cut so that it look liked the groom was leaning against the wood. I die cut 1180E Musical Notes Die from the BARC Cherry Wood Paper and added those as shown. Then I used some typeface letter stickers for my sentiment. Here is a closer look at the card. I think this card would be great for any aged guy in your life, don’t you? I really like how the silhouette of the groom can be used in so many different ways plus he looks like he is just leaning against that wood paper, doesn't he? I really think that the ARC Crafts BARC Cherry Wood paper is a must-have for your masculine projects! Check out the ARC Blog to see the other projects they have created with Tonic Products Supplies used: Tonic Studios – 73E Silhouette Scenes Groom die set; 1180E Rococo Petites Musical Notes Die; 706N Nuvo Charcoal glitter; 420E Funky...

Hello friends! Sorry to interrupt my series of masculine cards but you know it's Wednesday and that means it is time for a Heartfelt Creations project. This week it's time for a new release and you are going to love it! Beautiful in color, exquisite in fragrance, and ever so dignified, the rose is one of the most coveted flowers found in chic bouquets, or carefully tended flower gardens. Breathtaking in bud form, as a blossom gently opening, or in full bloom, it is a flower that calls attention to itself and beckons you to pause and quietly reflect upon its elegance. Heartfelt Creations invites you to stop, fall quiet and immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the new Classic Rose Collection! Filled with delicate illustrations of roses ranging from buds, to full blossoms, rose wreaths and flower filled vines, the three cling stamp sets and coordinating dies included in this assembling will have you building gorgeous rose gardens filled with varying sizes of dimensional flowers as realistic as those found in nature themselves. The captivating decorative paper collection will whisk you away to perfectly manicured rose filled grounds, serene meadows where brooks babble and wild roses hold their heads high, and alluring views from charming old world buildings clad in weathered brick and vining florals. The handsome color palette of regal purples, deep brick like reds, rich corals and leafy greens filled with delicate swirls, stunning brickwork and floral patterns, along with tender handwritten script are among just a few of the magnificent elements found within this graceful paper assembling. So join us as we slow down, enjoy the view and take some time to linger and smell the roses. Here is my first project using the Classic Rose Collection...... Here is a closer look.....

Hello friends! Today I have another project to share with you using some more products that are great for masculine cards. The card I have to share with you today I created using one of my favorite Tonic Studios dies and some BARC Cherry Wood Paper from ARC crafts. Creating a masculine card can sometimes be a challenge. Most of the supplies sold seem to be more for women and I have to say that creating pretty cards is my favorite. When I received some of this Cherry Wood Paper, I knew that a masculine card would be perfect for showing more ways to create masculine cards. Here is my card for today........ To create this square card, I cut some kraft cardstock to 5 1/4 x 10 1/2". Then I layered my mint and patterned paper together, cutting them slightly smaller than the base. I cut a strip of the Cherry Wood Paper to 2 x 4 1/2". Using my scissors, I cut a "V" in the bottom of the strip to create the banner look. Because the wood paper has an adhesive backing, it was very simple to adhere to my card. I cut a cardstock and patterned paper banner also. Then I really had a good time. Using the 528E Star Layering Die set, I die cut a bunch of different sized stars to decorate the front of my card. I layered the stars using the wood paper, patterned paper and cardstock. All of these papers cut great using the Tonic Studios dies! Here is a close up! I added some Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops to the smallest mint cardstock star and to the some of the little mint circles on the patterned paper to give it just a little glitter. You should give this ARC Crafts Cherry Wood Paper a try! The wood paper makes creating a masculine card very easy and it looks fantastic plus it is so unique! Check out the ARC blog to see the other projects they have created with Tonic Products. Supplies Used: Tonic Studios - 528E Star Layering Die Set; 758N White Blizzard Glitter Drops ARC Crafts - Cherry Wood Paper Cardstock - mint & white Cardstock Patterned Paper - All that Glitters Collection - Kaisercraft clear stamps - Verve Adhesives - Tonic Studios - 420E Funky glue; 3d foam squares Misc - Rich Cocoa Memento Ink pad; white...

Hello friends! Do you struggle with creating cards for those special men in your life? I know it has been a struggle for me as I am definitely a girly artist! LOL I had a blog follower contact me to see if I would create some masculine cards for her husband's birthday. That really got me thinking about the products I use and what did I have that would be perfect for this project. So today I am highlighting the Signature Collection By Sara Davies - Just For Men from Crafter's Companion. But on Tuesday and Thursday of this week, I will also have some masculine cards to share using other products from different companies. On Amazon Prime Day, I purchased the Silhouette Mint machine and thought this would be a great project to get it out and use it. I found it fairly easy to use but really need to sit down and play just a bit more. Plus I need more stamp "blanks" to create more stamps! Here is my first project.... To create this card, I used Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Just For Men.....this is the Time Piece embossing folder. After embossing a piece of chocolate chip cardstock, I used some metallic rub-on paste to highlight the clocks. I used gold and copper. Plus I used the On Your Birthday embossing folder and just cut out the "happy birthday" and then added more metallic paste. I stamped the "My Dear Husband" onto kraft cardstock using black ink (included with the Mint) and then just cut out the sentiment. I also added some burlap behind the sentiments for more interest. Here is another card I created........ I used the same On Your Birthday embossing folder plus I a piece of patterned paper from the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Just for Men - 6x6 Urban Collection papers. This card is more of a clean and quick style but I do like it. What do you think of my stamp? Now I am going to have to find the time to really learn how to use this Silhouette Mint. I am really excited! Be sure to check back tomorrow and the rest of the week for more masculine projects! Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello friends! A thank you card is something that I need all the time. Sometimes I need a special thank you for someone who has done something extra special for me or my family. Today I am sharing with you a special thank you card that I created using the Tonic Studios 1252E Miniature Moments - Many Thanks die. This card measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4". I created the base by cutting a piece of Kraft cardstock to 5 1/4 x 10 1/2". I scored this at 5 1/4" and folded it in half. I cut a piece of the music tissue paper to 5 x 5". I cut a piece of sky blue cardstock to 5 x 5" and tore it in half. I used the 259E Tim Holtz Paper Distresser on the edges of this piece before sponging it with sky blue ink. I die cut the 1228E Sew Pretty Cherish The Moment Rectangle Frame from some green cardstock and sponged around the edges with a matching green ink. I adhered the frame onto the card as shown. Then I used an easy technique to apply glitter to the 1252E Miniature Moments Many Thanks die cut. I applied some Stick It! Adhesive sheet to some white cardstock and die cut the sentiment. Instead of die cutting the sentiment so that the adhesive would be on the back of the die cut, I made sure I die cut so that the adhesive was on the top of the die. That way all I had to do was remove the film and give my sentiment die cut a dip in some 712N Pure Sheen Turquoise Glitter. Like this...... After I tapped off all the excess, I adhered the sentiment into place using some 420E Hi Tack glue. I created some flowers using the 770E Entwining Trellis - Radiant Roselily Die Set, adding more turquoise glitter to the middles of my flowers. After adhering my flowers into place, I tied a matching ribbon on the card front and then adhered the front to the base of the card. Here is a close-up. I love how this card turned out. It's amazingly sparkly! Here are the supplies I used to create this special thank you card..... Tonic Supplies Used: - these links are provided for your information only- 1252E Miniature Moments - Many Thanks die. 1228E Sew Pretty Cherish The Moment... Continue reading

Hello friends! Well I just realized that I didn't blog about my Wednesday project for Heartfelt Creations. Sorry about that! If you want to know the truth, I didn't even go into my crafty room yesterday and it was kinda nice. Sometimes you just need a day for yourself, don't you? Well my project for Heartfelt Creations is another Christmas card. This card would be super easy to mass produce (with or without the flower) using the wonderful card panels from the Celebrate the Season collection. If you don't mind paying extra postage and doing a little extra work, you can add the flower. For my cards this year, I will probably not include the flower....I am cheap like that! LOL Remember my tip about saving the extra flowers that you cut? Well here is one of those flowers. I pulled out the little baggy full of different sized poinsettias and assembled this flower in just a minute. But I truly think this would be a very pretty card with just the ribbon. Here is a closer look...... Products Used Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, 159723 Metal Tip for Adhesive Bottles, 352854 Memento Dye Ink Pad - Teal Zeal, TSMP602 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, HCST1-401 Large Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3679 Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3680 Large Sparkling Poinsettia Die, HCD1-765 Sparkling Poinsettia Die, HCD1-766 Memento Dye Ink Pad - Sweet Plum, TSMP506 Celebrate the Season Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3747 Celebrate the Season Paper Collection, HCDP1-268 Instructions Other Products: Kraft & White cardstock; Diamond Stickles (Ranger); ribbon, 3d foam squares Watch this video https://youtu.be/1INCr0klRIQ to learn how to shape the Sparkling Poinsettia.

Cut a card panel and a sentiment panel from the paper collection. Layer the sentiment panel on the card panel using 3d foam squares. Stamp the poinsettia image onto white cardstock using plum ink. I created just one small poinsettia. Stamp the leaf images onto some teal patterned paper using teal ink. Die cut the poinsettia and leaves with the matching dies. Using the flower shaping kit to shape the poinsettia. Tie the ribbon into place as shown. Add the poinsettia flower with leaves in the bottom left corner as shown. To complete the card, add...

Hello friends! It's Wednesday so that means it's time to share another Heartfelt Creations project. I haven't made a Triple Easel Card in a while and thought that the snowman plus the snowflake from the Snow Kissed Collection would make a wonderful easel card. What do you think? Here is another view of the card..... Products Used Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, 159723 Metal Tip for Adhesive Bottles, 352854 Luggage and Tags Die, HCD1-745 Dove Blender Kit, 241159 Memento Dye Ink Pad - Teal Zeal, TSMP602 Memento Dye Ink Pad - Tuxedo Black, TSMP900 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, HCST1-401 Scor-Pal Measuring & Scoring Board, 173842 Memento Dye Ink Pad - Sweet Plum, TSMP506 Ornate Sleigh Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3745 Celebrate the Season Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3747 Celebrate the Season Die, HCD1-7106 Celebrate the Season Paper Collection, HCDP1-268 Frolicking Frosty Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3750 Frolicking Frosty and Spruce Die, HCD1-7107 Snow Kissed Flakes and Tag Die, HCD1-7108 Instructions Other products: White & green cardstock; Big Scalloped Circles Large, Big Scalloped Circles Small, Classic Circles Small & Large (Spellbinders Paper Arts), Scor-Tape; 3d foam squares, Clear Overlay Sparkle Marker, rhinestones, ribbon; moss green ink Watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8Mj-EfcDvs for shaping tips and techniques on the poinsettia flower and holly leaves. Instructions: To create this Triple Easel Card, you need to cut the white cardstock into three pieces - one 4 1/2" x 9", one 4" x 8" and one 3 1/2" x 7". Fold each in half. Using the 3 largest sets of scalloped circles dies in your set, place the die so that part of the die is off the folded edge. Run these through your die cutter to create a scalloped shape card. Now you will fold the top part of this little scalloped circle in half (this creates the easel for each card). Adhere the bottoms of the three scalloped circles together to form your card. Now you will need to die cut some more to decorate your card. I cut/embossed the three corresponding scalloped circles out of white cardstock and three smaller circles out of patterned paper to mat onto my circles. (See sample.) Adhere your patterned paper and scalloped cardstock together and then using scor-tape adhere to the easels on your card. To decorate this easel card, I stamped the smaller snowman onto white cardstock using Tuxedo Black memento ink and colored it using the Dove Blender pen... Continue reading

Hello Friends! If you have been paying attention to some of my recent projects and videos, then you will know that my oldest daughter is getting married in about a year. We are very excited and just love our future son-in-law. Because of the up-coming wedding, I have been on the look out for wedding themed paper crafting items. I found the perfect range of products in the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Together Forever. The whole line is just perfect for wedding showers, weddings and anniversaries. Here is a project I created using this new collection and the newly released shaped-card dies - "Nicole" Create-A-Card Bases. Here is my project....... I used the Nicole Create-A-Card bases die to create the base of the card from white cardstock. Plus I cut a smaller die in the set from white cardstock and the decorated vellum cardstock. I adhered the vellum to the white cardstock die cut and added the ribbon at the side before I used 3d foam squares to adhere this layer to the card base. I die cut the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Together Forever Champagne Flute Dies from white cardstock and then I left the die cut in the die and sponged the open areas using Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink pad. I added more of the gold ink around the edges of the glasses. I cut the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Together Forever Celebrate die from some Gold Mat Cardstock. Before I die cut the "Celebrate", I added some Stick It! adhesive sheet onto the back of the gold mat cardstock. That way when I went to adhere the delicate words into place, I just removed the backing and it stuck right were I put it!! Here is a close up of my card..... I think this would be a lovely wedding card, don't you? Thanks for stopping by today! I have a few more projects to share with you in the next couple of days, so be sure to check back!

Hello friends. Happy Monday! Wow I am alittle slow today because last night we had some storms come thru and I just couldn't sleep. So join me with a caffeinated beverage of your choice - mine is ice tea - and I will show you one of my latest Tonic Studios projects. The project I am sharing with you is a beautiful and elegant birthday card that I created using the Jewelled Crown Double Detail Die set from Tonic Studios. This die set adds such a beautiful and elegant touch to your projects! The Double Detail line of dies are really unique. They come with a matching stencil that you can purchase to add dimension to your project. For this project, I didn't use the matching stencil but never fear, I will be showing you a couple of projects using this line in the weeks to come! This card measures 5×7″. To create this size base, you will need to cut a piece of 8 1/2 x 11″ cardstock to 7 x 10″. Score this piece at 5″ and fold. That will create the base of the card. Then I cut a piece of ivory cardstock to 4 3/4 x 6 3/4″. To that ivory layer, I added two piece of coordinating patterned paper. One side is slightly bigger at 3 1/2 x 4 1/2″ and the other piece is 3 x 4 1/2″. I added a piece of lace right at the place where the two papers come together. I cut just the outer edge of the Jewelled Crown Double Detail Die from kraft cardstock. Then I cut the inside of the die from ivory cardstock and layered them together. I tied a piece of seam binding around the main layers and added the pearl flourishes. Then added the Jewelled Crown die cut using 3d foam squares. I stamped the sentiment onto ivory cardstock and die cut it using the 485E Mixed Oval Layering die and layered that onto another oval cut from patterned paper using the same485E Mixed Oval Layering die set. Here is a closer look…… I really love the different looks you can get from the Double Detail range of die sets. I can tell I will be using this die set on a lot of my projects! Thanks for stopping by today! Dies: 485E Mixed Oval Layering die set, 1143E Jewelled Crown Double Detail Die... Continue reading

Hello friends! I don't know about you but making a masculine card for the guys in your life can be tough. I know I love to make fancy flowers and use pretty embellishments on my cards. So finding supplies that make creating cards for guys can be kind of hard. Today I want to share with you a fun card I created using supplies from the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Just For Men. It's a great collection! Here is my card..... To create this card base is so easy. Just cut the base to 10 x 7" and fold in half. This creates a 5 x 7" card. Using your scissors, cut the edges along the fold to resemble a tool box. I used a window punch to make it look like a handle. Then I used the 6x6" Checkerplate Embossing folder on just the front of the card. That means that I positioned the card front upside down in the embossing folder and ran it thru the machine. Then I added the pocket with the cute paper from the Just For Men 6x6" paper pad - Brights collection. The die cut words can be tricky to glue down so I covered the back of my red cardstock with StickIt! and then die cut using the Just for Men - Happy Birthday die. I added some gold brads. Here is a closer look........ The tools were die cut and embossed from Kraft cardstock using the Just For Men - Tool set dies. The tools come in pieces so you could cut them out of different paper if you want too. I think this card turned out great! We are giving it to my hubby for his birthday next month. You can check out all the fun products in the whole Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Just for Men on the Crafter's Companion website. I will have more posts later in the week! Thanks for stopping by today!
