Hello friends! Don't forget that it's time for a design team call at Heartfelt Creations. That means that Heartfelt also keeps a few of the designers that are on the team now but they let their customers decide who they should keep. So if you like seeing my Heartfelt Creations projects every Wednesday, please go and vote for me to continue on the team. You can read all about the design team call and the voting on this blog post on the Heartfelt Creations blog. Thanks for voting for me!! This Wednesday, Heartfelt Creations is releasing a new collection, Sunrise Lily Collection. It's everything you love about Heartfelt Creations! Rich and regal in appearance, along with a divine fragrant beauty and ornamental trumpet shaped blossom makes the lily flower a well known garden variety and a sure sign that spring has sprung. As the title of this assemblage suggests, it is filled with the romantic hues of a beautiful sunrise or sunset...glorious shades of pinks, oranges, and yellows which also reflect the stunning color palette of the lily blossoms as they appear in the gardens themselves. Ravishing shades of greens, creams and whites bring a crispness and a breath of fresh air just as the spring season itself. Patterned papers reveal regal ornamental iron like scroll work, dainty lace elements and lovely vintage like floral details. Beautiful imagery of lily filled vases, pretty flower adorned garden hats and luscious floral bouquets grace varying sized card panels, scrapbook layouts and embellishment tags, and are replicated in five sets of delicately detailed stamp illustrations. The crowning glory to the collection itself is the dimensional lily flower that will add a touch of reality to each of your springtime creations. So, chase away those winter blues brought on by old man winter, combat spring fever by filling your creative space with a touch of splendor as you begin creating with the Sunrise Lily Collection for the upcoming spring and Easter season. Here is my project using the Sunrise Lily Collection! I made a video showing you how I created this frame including using gilding flakes, coloring and shaping the Lily flowers and putting it all together. Here is a closer look at my frame. Plus I have included written instructions and links to all the beautiful Heartfelt Creations products I used (no affiliate links were used) Products Used: Sunrise Lily Paper Collection Sunrise...

I have a new project to share with you using some stamps from The Rubber Cafe'. Can you believe it's almost time for one of my favorite holidays - Valentine's Day? The Rubber Cafe' has many images that are perfect to create that special card for your valentine. Here is what I created today..... For this card, I used the stamp sets Winging It and Friendship Is The Best Accessory. I stamped the flower image from Friendship Is The Best Accessory 2 times and colored them using my Spectrum Noir markers. I stamped the butterfly from the set, Winging It, onto vellum using white pigment ink, sprinkled on some white embossing powder and heat set. Once it was cool, I cut out the butterfly. I stamped the sentiment (from Winging It!) onto white cardstock and cut it into a banner. I added a hexagon die cut and some woodgrain patterned paper. Here is a closer look. This is definitely a more feminine card for Valentine's Day. I sure hope one of my daughters likes it! Thanks for stopping by today! Supplies: The Rubber Cafe' - Winging It, Friendship Is The Best Accessory Clear stamp sets Paper - White, Kraft and Vellum Cardstock; Neverending Summer 6x6 Paper Pad - Lemoncraft Ink - white pigment ink pad, Espresso Truffle Memento Ink Pad Accessories - Hexagon die (Sizzix); Nuvo Glacier White Embossing Powder (Tonic Studios); Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers - DG2, PP1, PP5, BP2, LY2, LY3, IB3; 3d foam squares, ribbon Continue reading

If you started here on my blog, please visit Gloria's blog to see her awesome project. This month we didn't have a theme or anything so I started looking around on Pinterest and 5 hours later, I decided what I would make..LOL I recently received a some Tonic Studios Nuvo Glitter and wanted to show a way to use it that didn't include paper. So this is what I came up with. I found some jars that were in my recycle bin and decided that turning them into a home decor decoration would be a great idea! So I even created a video to show you how I made these. In this video, I also show you how to use Tonic Studios Nuvo Gilding Flakes to give the rim of the jars a really unique look! So I hope you will dig thru your recycle bin and turn some old jars into a cool home decor piece! Now it's time to hop on over to Jacquie Southas' blog to see her project.

Hello friends! It's been awhile since I shared a project using Pink Ink Stamps. Not too long ago, Peggy (owner and Illustrator) sent me some new releases for the Spring. Wow are they cute! I had so much fun with one of the stamps in the new release - Floral Wellies. It's just so cute. Here is what I created! See what I mean? Isn't this image adorable? I stamped it onto a die cut rectangle and colored it using my Spectrum Noir markers. I chose my colors based on the patterned paper I decided to use. This is a 6x6 paper pad from LemonCraft called Neverending Summer. I really love the soft, muted colors of this paper pad. I added the doily and ribbon to complete this card. Here is a close-up! Can you see the sparkle on the flowers? I added some crystal stickles to give it that glitter sheen! The sentiment is from Pink Ink Stamps, too. You can purchase the whole line of Pink Ink Stamps at Ellen Hutson LLC online store. Here are the links....... Floral Wellies Think of You Sentiment Or check Pink Ink's website to find a local store near you that carries their stamps, or to order wholesale. Here is a bonus card that I created using this week's Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers..... I really love this stamp!! LOL Continue reading

Hello friends. I noticed the other day that my thank you card stash is dwindling down so I got out some of my supplies and decided to create some easy and quick thank you cards. For these stamps, I kept my cards to a monochromatic theme...meaning I used the same color cardstock, ink and embellishments. Plus I used white cardstock for the base. That makes it super easy to write a quick note inside the card! I used the clear stamp set - Laurels - from The Rubber Cafe'. That stamp set and many more are on sale over at The Rubber Cafe' until the end of the month. I stamped the sentiment onto some scrap white cardstock and used a label punch to punch it out. I added ribbon, buttons and twine. Now if you are going to mail these cards and don't want to add extra postage, don't add the button. I haven't had any issues mailing my cards with ribbon yet....... I made 8 of these cards in about 30 minutes. I had alot of fun making these cards and I know we will use them up quickly! Thanks for stopping by today! Stamps - The Rubber Cafe - Laurels Paper - White, Blushing Bride & Soft Sky - Stampin' Up! Ink - Blushing Bride & Soft Sky ink pads - Stampin' Up!

I have been designing for The Rubber Cafe' for a few years now. For the past couple of those years The Rubber Cafe' has had these great Creative Cafe' Kits available as a monthly subscription kit which includes - stamps, cardstock, patterned paper, ribbon and other embellishments. We have taken off the past month to allow our artist and the owner of The Rubber Cafe' to catch up and do some other housekeeping. So all this month the design team has been showcasing stamp sets that are ON SALE on The Rubber Cafe' website. These stamp sets are from some of the past Creative Cafe' kits. So if you are a subscriber to the Creative Cafe' Kit club, you already have these wonderful stamps. But if you don't have these stamp sets, now is the time to grab them for a great price. You can check out all the stamp sets currently on sale HERE. Today I have a card for a special friend using the Vintage Findings and Those Were Good Times stamp sets. I love these two sets. They call to the vintage, shabby chic in me! To begin this card, I cut a piece of brown cardstock to 5 1/4 x 10 1/2" and scored it at 5 1/4" to create the base for this card. The patterned paper is from the 6x6 Love & Lace Collection pad by Bo Bunny. I stamped the cameo image onto some pink cardstock using Versamark ink. I sprinkled on white embossing powder and heat set it then fussy cut it out. I stamped the cameo again onto white cardstock using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and cut just the woman's silhouette out. I added a strip of the pink cardstock along the middle of the card and tied some seam binding ribbon into a bow around it. Then I added a die and popped up my embossed cameo and the sentiment. To complete the card, I added some pearls in all 4 corners. Here is a close-up! I hope you will check out these great deals on some really great stamp sets. If you already are a Creative Cafe' Kit subscriber, I hope you will be inspired to use your stamp sets in a different way. Also I know that we will be starting up the kit club again really soon! Thanks for stopping by today! Stamps - The Rubber Cafe'... Continue reading

Hello friends! I forgot to share with you an exciting new team I am joining! I am now a Tonic Studios USA Blog Ambassador! You are probably familiar with Tonic Studios because they make those wonderful Tim Holtz Scissors, trimmers and cool tools. But did you know they have a wonderful line of dies and some other cool mixed media stuff called the Nuvo line? I am so excited to get started! I made a few projects for their CHA booth and will be showcasing them when I can. Today I can share with you two projects I created using dies, gilding flakes and stamps! My first project is a card that uses a stamp and die set called It's Your Day from the Indulgence Chalk Board & Die set. I love how it turned out!! To create this card, I used a heavy white cardstock for the base. The finished card measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4" so that means I cut an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of white cardstock to 5 1/4 x 10 1/2" then I scored it at 5 1/4" and folded it in half. I cut a piece of kraft cardstock to 5 x 5" and then the woodgrain patterned paper to 4 3/4 x 4 3/4". I used the Honeycomb Simply Screened die and used it to cut a strip of teal patterned paper. Here is what the Honeycomb Simply Screened die looks like........(as you can see there are two designs in one package!) I used some brown ink around all the edges of my layers. I attached this honeycomb die cut using a Nuvo Medium Glue Pen. After attaching the honeycomb die cut, I added some lace along the bottom and tied my seam binding into a bow. The I die cut some white cardstock using the It's Your Big Day Chalkboard Die and Stamp Set. Here is what the die looks like...... It's hard to tell in the picture but there is a die that just cuts out the outside shape of this die! That makes it so much easier to mat this beautiful die cut if you want, too! So I die cut some teal paper using that outside shape and the cut the inside intricate shape using white cardstock. Then I die cut a piece of patterned using one of the Oval Layering dies and matted that onto my... Continue reading

Hello Friends! I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas holiday and are getting ready to celebrate the new year with your family and friends! I will be participating in the Season's of Giving Blog Hop on Dec 31, starting at 11:00 pm CST, along with a bunch of crafty friends and companies. So be sure to check out my blog on that day. I will be giving away some fun crafty goodies and everyone else on the blog hop will be giving away prizes so it's definitely worth checking out! Today I have a card that I created using a Crafter's Companion DVD. Now I don't usually use digital stuff because it takes alot of ink from the printer. But I have to say that it's super convenient to be able to print out however much I want of the papers and images included on a CD. So here is my project...... I used papers I printed from the Crafter's Inspiration Paper crafting DC Issue 7-Summer Edition- Times Gone By Collection. Then I cut the image and matted it onto some white cardstock. I added some crystal stickles to give it some sparkle.

Hello friends! Today I have another Heartfelt Creations project to share with you. I really loved the Sparkling Poinsettia Collection and just knew that I could make some beautiful Christmas ornaments to give to friends and family as gifts this year. Here are my 3d stars using that collection.... Here is a close-up! Products Used: Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set Sparkling Poinsettia Notes Cling Stamp Set Large Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set Sparkling Poinsettia Die Large Sparkling Poinsettia Die Embossing Powder - Gold Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit Art Institute Glue - Dries Clear Metal Glue Tip - Art Institute Project Instructions: Other products: Silhouette Cameo Digital Cutter, 3d Star SVG file; Versamark Embossing Powder; Heat Embossing Tool, Gold Cording, Red, Green & Kraft Cardstock; gold bells, hole punch Watch this video https://youtu.be/1INCr0klRIQ to learn how to shape the Sparkling Poinsettia. Instructions: I created 25 of these stars to give as gifts to my family and friends. To begin, I downloaded a 3d star cut file and used my digital cutter to cut them. These stars are in 2 pieces to create that 3d effect. Once they were all cut out, I stamped the top of the stars using the Sparkling Poinsettia Notes Cling Stamp set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set them. Then I stamped the flowers from the Sparkling Poinsettia Cling stamp set onto red cardstock and embossed them with the gold embossing powder. I used the leaf stamp and die from the Large Sparkling Poinsettia Cling stamp set and green cardstock to create the leaves for my poinsettias. How many times you will need to stamp, emboss and die cut the flowers will be up to you based on how many layers you want your flowers to have. I stamped, embossed and die cut my flowers 12 times. I created 12 large poinsettias and 12 small poinsettias using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape them. After embossing my stars and assembling my flowers, I created an assembly line for my stars. I adhered the two piece stars together using scor-tape and then punched a hole in the top of the star to add the gold cording. I then used my hot glue gun to attach the poinsettia, leaf and bell to finish each one! Continue reading

Hello Friends! Today I want to share with you a fun project I made using the Sara Davies Signature Collection - Festive Wonder. Using the papers from the 12 x 12 Paper pad, kraft cardstock, white glitter paper, the Silhouette Cameo and some a snowflake die, I created these fun ornaments. First, I downloaded the 3d star SVG file from the Silhouette Online Store. If you don't have a digital cutter, just google 3d star pattern and you will find what you need to print and cut out by hand. I used my Silhouette to cut the two piece star from Crafter's Companion Kraft cardstock. Then I cut the the front of the star from the Sara Davies Signature Collection - Festive Wonder 12 x 12 paper pad. I also die cut the Festive Flake die using white glitter paper. I assembled the stars and added the silver tinsel around the outside and the snowflakes in the middle. To complete these stars, I added a small hole at the top and used some thread to create a hanger. I have a short video showing you how I assembled these. Supplies Used: Signature Collection by Sara Davies Festive Wonder 12 x 12 paper pad Signature Collection By Sara Davies Festive Wonder Festive Flake Decorative Metal Die chipboard white glitter paper silver tinsel ribbon cording 3d svg file - Silhouette Online Store Continue reading
