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! Today I am so excited to share some exciting news with you! On August 30, Sara Davies will be on HSN and will release the new Spectrum Noir Colorista line. Spectrum Noir Colorista is a collection of alcohol markers, wax-based colored pencils, paper pads & card-making kits designed specifically for enthusiasts of adult coloring. The whole line is just awesome. The Colorista Design team has gotten together and we are doing a blog hop to celebrate and give you all some sneak peeks! Be sure to comment on each blog for a chance to win some cool products from this line. So be sure to check out the blog hop link list below, comment on the blogs and then check the Crafter's Companion US blog on August 29 to see if you won! Here is my project for today's blog hop! Coloring can be alot of fun but I am sure you wonder what you should do with the pages you colored, right? Well, I decided that I loved the flower from the Natural Beauty Foil Accent Colorista Pad, so I colored the flower and then fussy cut out the flower. Here is the page I colored the flower and the Colorista Markers I used. I still have the rest of the page to color and use in my card making. As you can see, the best part about the foil accent pages are that not everything is foil....there are some plain ink parts. That just makes the foil sections look so neat! Here is a close-up of my card.............

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!

Hello friends. Wow I am really sorry I haven't been posting alittle more this summer. It's been a really fun summer so far. We have been spending time together as a family and that is very precious to me. The hubby is on vacation, all of my girls are home and the weather is beautiful - hot but beautiful summer weather! I have found some time to work - during the very hottest part of the day- so I do have a few projects to share with you in the coming days. Here is a project I created using some really cute supplies from Tonic Studios! Do you love fairies? If you do, then the Fairy Reflections range will be perfect for you. This range includes stamps, dies and papers with some of the cutest fairies! Here is my card.... This card measures 5 x 7″. So to begin, I cut a piece of rose cardstock to 7 x 10″, scored it at 5″ to create the base of the card. Next I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 3/4 x 6 3/4″ and ran that thru my Tangerine machine using the A4 Embossing Folder – Martha. I always think a little extra texture helps to make a good card – Great! Then I die cut a piece of rose cardstock using the outside edge die from the Sew Pretty – Cherish The Moment set . I also die cut the sentiment piece from the Fairy Reflection – Wishes Illustrated paper pack using the other edge piece included in the Sew Pretty – Cherish the Moment set. Each of these Sew Pretty dies gave my layered pieces that “sewing” look that I think is really nice. I also die cut the fairy from the Fairy Reflection – Wishes Illustrated Paper Pack using the Fairy Reflection – Camellia die set. I just used the outer die to cut her out. There is also an inner, more detailed die included in the set plus there is a stamp, too! Here is a closer look at my card…… I think this card would be perfect for that special little girl in your life, don’t you? Thanks for stopping by today! Supplies: Tonic Studios USA Dies: 1228E Sew Pretty – Cherish the Moment; 1202E Fairy Reflections – Camellia Embossing Folder: 515E A4 Embossing Folder – Martha Paper: 1055E Fairy Reflections Wishes Illustrated...

Hello friends! Hope you are enjoying this wonderful summer weather. I know I have been out in the sunshine just reading a book or taking a walk and it's been fantastic. Sometimes you just have to take time for yourself, you know? Today is Wednesday so that means I have a Heartfelt Creations project to share with you today. I created a card with a matching box using the Botanic Orchid Collection. I love the soft colors in the collection and I used that color scheme to create this project. Products Used Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, 159723 Metal Tip for Adhesive Bottles, 352854 Luggage and Tags Die, HCD1-745 Dove Blender Kit, 241159 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, HCST1-401 Scor-Pal Measuring & Scoring Board, 173842 Botanic Orchid Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3741 Regal Hummingbird Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3742 Botanic Orchid Bouquet Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3743 Botanic Window Die, HCD1-7100 Botanic Orchid Die, HCD1-7101 Regal Hummingbird Die, HCD1-7102 Botanic Orchid Paper Collection, HCDP1-267 Instructions Other products: White, Green & Sky Blue cardstock; Soft Sky, So Saffron & Pear Pizzaz Ink pads (Stampin Up); Scor-Tape; pearls, 3d foam squares, sponge; scalloped edge punch; pearl stickers, diamond stickles, blender pen Watch this video https://youtu.be/SRyuiBrFluo to learn how to create and shape the Botanic Orchid flowers. Instructions: To create the gift box, I used the 2-5-7-10 Box Tutorial found here on Splitcoast Stampers with a few changes. I used a piece of white cardstock and once I did the scoring, I stamped the Orchid Accent stamp (from Regal Hummingbird stamp set) randomly using the sky blue ink. Instead of using the top flap as indicated in the instructions (I just cut the whole section off), I cut a piece of patterned paper to 3" x 4" and scored it at 2". Then I used a scalloped edge punch along the bottom of both sides. I used a hole punch to punch two holes to thread some ribbon through. Place the this top portion on the box and squeeze it close. Punch the two holes into the box tops and then adhere this top to the back portion of the box only. Once you thread the ribbon thru the holes you punched, this will close the bag. To create the card, cut a piece of white cardstock to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" to create an A2 size card. Cut a piece of patterned paper from the collection... Continue reading

Hello Friends! Today I have a fun project to share with you using Tonic Studios dies. For today's card I used the Sew Pretty- Have a Beautiful Day Circle Frame and Pinhole Square Layering Die Set. I love to create a square card so using these dies was so much fun for me! To begin this card, I cut a piece of 8 1/2 x 11″ Kraft cardstock to 5 1/4 x 10 1/2″. I scored it at 5 1/4″. Before I folded this base, I used the #525E Sew Pretty Pinhole Nesting Square Layering die set. I found the size die in the set that would be just around the outside of my card and ran it thru myTangerine Machine. I cut the dotted paper to 4 1/2″ square and then the flower print paper is cut to a 4 1/4″ square. I used the Pinhole Nesting square die on the flower print square, too! I love the look it gives. I die cut the #1227E Sew Pretty Have A Beautiful Day die from burgundy cardstock and the sentiment is die cut from cream cardstock. I also die cut a scalloped oval from the #485E Mixed Oval Layering die set. I added the seam binding bow to complete the card. Here is a closer look at my card. Here are the supplies I used to create this card: Tonic Studios Dies – #525E Sew Pretty Pinhole Nesting Square Layering die set, #1227E Sew Pretty Have A Beautiful Day die, #485E Mixed Oval Layering die set Papers – Kraft & Cream cardstock; Garden Journal – Bo Bunny patterned paper Misc – seam binding ribbon, 3d foam squares, Funky Glue Pen Thanks for stopping by today!

Hello friends! Today I have 2 fun cards to share with you that I created using new stamps from Pink Ink Stamps! Don't you just love to wear flip flops? I know I do and I get kinda sad when it's too cold outside to wear them. I am happy to report that while it's now toasty warm here in Missouri, it is warm enough for flip flops! Here are my cards! For this first card, I used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers, waterbrush and watercolor paper. I stamped the Flowery Flip Flop image all over the watercolor paper using Versamark ink. Then I dusted the images with white embossing powder and heat set it. Then using the Sparkle Markers, I waterbrushed a rainbow effect all over. I cut the panel to 4 x 5 1/4" and layered it onto a white cardstock base. I embossed the Sandy Toes sentiment onto some sky blue cardstock and cut it out. I adhered the sentiment to the card using 3d foam squares. Here is a closer look..... For this next card, I stamped the Flowery Flip Flips onto watercolor paper using Timber Brown Staz-on ink. Then I watercolored the flip flops with my Sparkle Markers. I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock and cut it out, too. I just love these images! The cards turned out super cute! Thanks for stopping by today! Supplies Used: ( links included for your convenience, some links are affiliate links Stamps - Flowery Flip Flops, Sandy Toes, Flip Flop Life stamps (Pink Ink Stamps, LLC) Paper - Watercolor paper, white, kraft and peach cardstock Ink - Versamark ink pad, Timber Brown Staz-on ink pad Misc - Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers; waterbrush, white embossing powder, heat tool Continue reading
