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 it's the 4th day of 2017.....I really don't have too much to show for it either! Oh well...... I would like to remind you that there are still a few more days to comment on my Seasons of Giving Blog Hop post. The prize is a pretty good one and I would love it if one of my regular readers would be the winner! So be sure to check out that blog post HERE, if you haven't already! Here is this week's Heartfelt Creations project. I used the Woodsy Woodland collection papers, stamps and dies to create this simple card. Products Used Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, 159723 Metal Tip for Adhesive Bottles, 352854 Luggage and Tags Die, HCD1-745 Woodsy Treescape Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3766 Woodsy Critters Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3768 Woodsy Landscape Die, HCD1-7122 Woodsy Critters Die, HCD1-7124 Woodsy Wonderland Paper Collection, HCDP1-273 Instructions Other Products: White, Navy Blue Cardstock; Watercolor Paper; Spectrum Aqua markers - Crimson, Orange and Moss; paint brush; seam binding ribbon; 3d foam squares; Jet Black Staz-on ink pad; Classic Rectangles Small die (Spellbinders) Instructions: This finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I created the base of the card by cutting a full sheet of navy blue cardstock to 4 1/4" x 11". I scored that at 5 1/2" and folded it in half. I cut a slightly smaller piece of white cardstock. Plus I cut the blue flourish panel from the paper collection. I stamped the birds and the leaves onto watercolor paper using black Staz-on ink pad. Using a paint brush, water and watercolor markers, I colored the birds and leaves. I then used the matching dies to cut them out. I glued the white rectangle of cardstock down and then adhered 2 of the leaf branches. Using 3d foam squares, I adhered the third leaf branch and the birds into place as shown. I added the sentiment ticket using 3d foam squares, too! I tied the seam binding into a bow on the bottom of the card to complete the project! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Crafter's Companion is having another big day on HSN on January 10 and I have a couple of sneek peak projects to show you in a the next few days! 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

I love the little tree card you made! So cute! I have made at least 30 cards for myself and about 30 more for friends and family! Kinda ready to put that aside now! LOL

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!

Using one of the edge dies, I cut strips of silver mirror cardstock for each fold out portion. I adhered this behind each fold out edge. I added more patterned paper to each fold out. I die cut a circle of the matching patterned paper for the second fold out. I also found a sentiment panel in... Continue reading

Hello friends! Can you believe that next week is Thanksgiving? It's kinda hard to believe here at my house because today it was 83 degrees! I live in Missouri and I know the weather can be unpredictable but this is just weird. Of course the weatherman tells us that this weekend it will be alot colder and we may even have snow flurries. Well, sign me up for a cold....right? LOL Today I have a couple of cards to share with you that are quick and easy to create plus the will not require extra postage. You know that is always a plus for me. Here is version one of this card..... Both of these card are A2 cards (4 1/4 x 5 1/2"). I used supplies from the newly released Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Contemporary Christmas to create both of the cards. The 6x6 paper pad has 3 sheets of 16 different patterns, all with the same colors - blue, teal, purples and greens. I love the color combos and especially love the snowflake dies in this collection. Here is another version of the same card! I hand-cut the banner edge on the strips of paper. Using the patterned paper in this way, really stretches the paper. I created 12 of each of these cards using the 3 sheets of patterned paper. There are many combos you could come up with in this patterned paper, too. I am not big on making alot of the same card, so this was perfect for me! Here are the supplies I used to create these two cards..... Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Contemporary Christmas 6x6 Paper pad Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Contemporary Christmas stamp set - Festive Sentiments Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Contemporary Christmas metal die - Snowflakes of Joy Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Traditional Christmas A4 Luxury Mirror Cardstock Crafter's Companion Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock White grosgain ribbon with silver edging - Really Reasonable Ribbon Gray Flannel Memento Ink Pad rhinestone stickers glue dots, 3d foam squares SU!

Hello friends! Happy Monday! Hope you had a good weekend with great weather. I can't believe it's November 7 and the weather is so warm and really nice. I can't believe I am going to say this - but I wish it would get cooler...ya know, more like fall?! Well despite the warm weather, I am still working on different Christmas card ideas using different products. Today I am showcasing the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Traditional Christmas collection from Crafter's Companion again. I really love this collection and it is definitely tradtional. Here is my project for today..... Yes it's another 6x6 square card....sorry just couldn't help myself. This card would actually be easy to make assembly-line style. If you didn't want to pay the extra postage for a square card, you could definitely resize the card to 5 x 7". It might be hard to see in the picture but the gold paper behind the angel is embossed with Merry Christmas all over it. This paper comes in the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Traditional Christmas A4 Foiled card pad. I thought this paper was perfect for the Guardian Angel die cut from the gold mirror cardstock, don't you? Here is a closer look........ I added the sentiment that I die cut into a circle onto the Decorative Baubles die cut and added the gold cording. I love how this turned out. I have alot more Christmas cards to share with you in the next couple of weeks. Plus I am have been working on a video tutorial that I can't wait to share! Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello Friends. I have another Christmas card to share with you today using the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Traditional Christmas collection. I love the dies in this collection. They are intricate and beautiful! I used the Entwined Holly die and Gold Mirror Cardstock for this project. I have to say that in real life, the gold mirror cardstock is much shinier! This card measures 6x6 so it will require more postage. You can use this die going vertically on a smaller card.....like a 5 x7" card doesn't require more postage. Did you know that? I sure didn't and I have been making that size like crazy, too! LOL This die cut the gold mirror cardstock completely the first time thru the machine and there was no need to use any waxed paper or anything! Just awesome and really fun! Here is a closer look..... I am going to make this card again in a different size and will be posting it soon. Hope I have given you some inspiration to go and make YOUR cards! Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello friends! I still have few more of the Die Destash boxes available. You can view that blog post HERE to check it all out! Today I have first of many Christmas cards I want to share with you. Some of the cards are more involved than others but I like to make a variety of different cards. I don't know about you but sitting down and making 40 cards of the same design is just super boring for me. So here is a fun card I created using some new releases from Crafter's Companion. This is a square card that measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4". This will require a bit more postage so keep that in mind. Using papers, stamps and dies from the new Signature Collection cy Sara Davies - Traditional Christmas, I created this ornament card. First I stamped the ornament images from the Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Traditional Christmas Stamp Set - Peace and Joy onto vanilla cardstock using Versamark ink and sprinkled on some Nuvo Classic Gold Embossing powder. After I heat set the images, I used the matching Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Traditional Christmas Metal Die - Decorative Baubles to die cut them. The base of the card is vanilla cardstock. I layered some gold mirror card and 6x6 patterned papers from the collection onto the base. I adhered the ornaments into place using 3d foam squares, being sure to place the gold cording underneath the ornaments. I added the gold cording bows with a glue dot later. I stamped and embossed the sentiment and cut it out with a scalloped oval die. Here is a closer look........ I love how this turned out. You could create the card in the A2 size but just wouldn't be able to put all three shapes of ornaments. Probably only 2 shapes would fit, don't you think? Well I hope I have given you some inspiration to start creating your Christmas cards now so you won't be rushing when it gets closer to Christmas! Thanks for stopping by today! Supplies Used: Signature Collection By Sara Davies - Traditional Christmas - Decorative Baubles Metal Die, Peace and Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set, 6x6 Paper pad, Gold Luxury Mirror Card Die'sire Essentials - Scalloped Ovals dies Other products - Versamark ink pad, Nuvo gold embossing powder from Tonic Studios, gold cording Continue reading

Hello friends! Wow, Wednesday sure did sneak up on me this week. This week my Heartfelt Creations project is a bit different. I created a tag using the Classic Rose and Blushing Rose collections. I kinda went overboard with my new Nuvo glittery gold embossing powder that I just got from Tonic Studios. This stuff is just awesome. The picture doesn't actually do it justice. It was kind of hard to capture the glittery look that you get in real life! Here is a closer look......... Products Used Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, 159723 Metal Tip for Adhesive Bottles, 352854 Memento Dye Ink Pad - Espresso Truffle, TSMP808 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, HCST1-401 Classic Rose Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3752 Classic Rose Die, HCD1-7110 Blushing Rose Stem Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3755 Encourage You Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3758 Blushing Rose Stem Die, HCD1-7113 Blushing Rose Paper Collection, HCDP1-271 Instructions Other Products: Kraft Tag #8; Labels Sixteen Die – Spellbinders Paper Arts; Nuvo Gold Enchantment glitter embossing powder; VersaMark ink pad; gold cording; gold stickles; 3d foam squares; gold cording Watch this video https://youtu.be/Z8P070kC3oo to learn how to create dimensional roses with the Classic Rose Collection. Instructions: This finished tag measures 3 1/8" x 6". To begin this project, cut a panel from the paper collection and adhere it to the tag. Using the Versamark ink pad, ink up the edges only of the tag and sprinkle on the gold glitter embossing powder. Heat set the powder and set aside. Stamp the leaves from the Blushing Rose Stem set onto the dark green patterned paper using Versamark ink. Sprinkle on the glitter embossing powder and heat set. You will need two of these leaves. Stamp some of the Classic Rose images onto blue and yellow paper from the collection using Versamark. Apply the embossing powder and heat set. Die cut the leaves and flowers using the matching dies. Use the deluxe flower shaping tool to shape the leaves and flowers. Stamp the sentiment onto yellow patterned paper and die cut with the labels die.

HelloFriends! Well it's just about that time again. The Christmas Season is slowly creeping up on us. Now is the time to start making your cards, so I will be having at least one Christmas card a week until the first of December to showcase. If you just aren't up to making your own cards, please join my Facebook event - Christmas Card Showcase. I will be posting sets of Christmas cards I have for sale. If you would like an invite to the event, just leave your email address in the comments below and I will send you one! Today I have a cute gingerbread man card to share with you. For this card, I used the 1011e Rococo Petite Gingerbread Man die from Tonic Studios. I really love this cute little guy! What do you think? To create this A2 sized card, cut the red cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11″ and score/fold it at 5 1/2″ using the Super Trimmer. Cut the white cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4″ and the patterned paper to 3 3/4 x 5″. Using the 1456e Mixed Edge Oval Layering Basics Die set, die cut the red cardstock using a scalloped oval in the set and then die cut the white cardstock using the smaller die. This die set is really great because there are 13 dies in this one set – 6 regular ovals & 7 scalloped ovals! Here is what it looks like in the packaging! I die cut the 1011e Petite Rococo Petite Gingerbread Man die from Kraft cardstock and glued him onto the white oval die cut using Funky Glue. Then using the 752N Nuvo Ruby Slippers Glitter Drops to highlight the negative areas. Here is a closer look…… This card would be perfect to create assembly-line style. Meaning I could do all the die cutting and assembling very easy! You could add a sentiment if you want but I didn’t think it need it. Just write some really nice inside and you are ready to send this cutie off to your family and friends!
