Welcome back

I have just received the new Border Basics die set from Heartfelt Creations along with their new fold out cards and I think the dies are beautiful and will add a new dimension to my paper crafting.  There are so many things you can do with them and here are my first efforts.

First up is a fold out card featuring paper from the Cut Mat Create Collection which is no longer available unfortunately,  However, I had a lot of fun with the papers and also adding the glitter to the flowers.

With this card I ended up gluing the folds together to make a single fold card but it still came together well.  Here is the inside of the card.

For this next card I have used one of the inserts from the Flip Fold Albums – Insert B

This made a lovely pop up card and featured the border dies very nicely.

And finally here is a very simple but elegant card using the Classic Border Basics dies and a single rose from the Classic Rose set.

Today I am featuring an easel wedding card I have made using the Eyelet Oval, Decorative Oval dies and  the Classic Rose stamp and die sets from Heartfelt Creations.

I have been inspired by the lovely white roses that Glenda Brooks has made for Heartfelt Creations here and this is my version of the roses.

Pretty in Pink Sparkle

Welcome back

This week I have got two cards for you.  I have been playing with the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms stamp and die and glitter.

I was really pleased with how these flowers turned out and used these cards as practice.  I am looking forward to my order coming on Monday with the new edge dies and fold out cards where I have an idea for using them so watch this space…

Flower Making Tutorial:

  1. I have stamped the flowers with Memento Lilac Posies and sponged the centres with Memento New Sprout before cutting out.
  2. I then die cut the flowers out and sponged the edges with the Memento Lilac Posies.
  3. I spritzed the back with some water and shaped the flowers using my Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.
  4. After leaving the layers to dry I then glued the flowers together with Art Glitter Dries Clear Glue.
  5. I then used the glue on the edges of the petal and applied prisma glitter on the glue when I then left to dry.
  6. To finish the flowers I have put some more glue in the centres of the flowers and sprinkled some Lettuce Entertain You Prills.
  7. For the leaves I have stamped with Memento Northern Pine.  I then used a sponge dauber to colour the leaves with Memento New Sprout.  I then used a sponge to sponge Memento Bamboo Leaves on the edges to create some dimension.

Materials used:

  • Cardstock – CTMH White Daisy, American Crafts Patterned cardstock – lilac (I think)
  • Stamps – Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms, CTMH Someone Special, Heartfelt Creations Classic Message
  • Dies – Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms, Raindrops on Roses, Spellbinders Floral Ovals, Majestic Labels 25
  • Inks – Memento Lilac Posies, New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves
  • Pearl from my stash
  • Ribbon from my stash
  • Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive
  • Glitter from my stash
  • Prills – Lettuce Entertain You

Have a good week and Happy Crafting
