Black Heartfelt Creations cardstock

Stamps – Classic Rose

Dies – Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose, Regal Borders, Cut Mat Create 1A, Spellbinders Large Circles, Lacey Circles

Art Glitter Dries Clear Glue

Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay

Foam tape

Instructions:

Cut a base of 9” x 5 1/2” inch in black cardstock and score at 4 ½” and 6 ¾” and fold the end panel over to create the easel.  Fold into a Cut another two pieces of black cards stock 6” x 5 ½” for the fronts.  Using the edge die from the Regal Borders dies cut the edge from one side of the cards.  Cut two sheets of patterned paer 6” x 5 ½” and cut the lacy border edge from the Regal borders and adhere to the base card.  Place one on the top of the easel and the other on the base of the easel.  Finished measurement is 7” x 5”.

Cut out the panels from the All Glammed Up paper collection and mat onto black cardstock.  Die cut the circle image out of the panel using the Spellbinders circle die.  Adhere the lace to the card using Art Glitter Dries Clear adhesive.  Die cut a black lacy die from the Spellbinders Lacey Circles dies and mat the patterned circle image onto the die cut.  Adhere the image onto the back panel with foam tape for dimension.

For the base of the card die cut another image from a panel using the Cut Mat Create 1A die and mat it with black cardstock adhere it to the second panel.

To make the flowers stamp the Classic Rose stamps in a variety of sizes with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto red cardstock.  Die cut out the shapes and sponge the edges with Rhubarb Stalk ink.  Using the Deluxe Shaping Kit shape the flowers and assemble them in the sizes you want.

Stamp the leaves from the Classic Rose set with Northern Pine and sponge with Bamboo Leaves before die cutting.  Shape the leaves using the Deluxe Shaping kit.

For the base I have added one larger rose and two smaller roses on the leaves either side to hold the easel in place.

Add the leaves and flowers as shown and finally add some pearls on the centre image.  Die cut the sentiment using the Luggage Tags and Labels set and sponge the edges with Rhubarb Stalk ink.  Adhere with sponge foam.

I have used Spectum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay on the roses for a bit of shine and sparkle.

Have a good week and Happy Crafting

Soft and Pretty Cards

Welcome Back

This week I am featuring a couple of cards made with vellum flowers using Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose stamp and die set.  I think this is my most used stamp and die set as it is really versatile with lots of different ways of making flowers.  And I am still going through my Sweet Lullaby papers and will be very sad when they are finished, but there are gorgeous new products coming all the time.

This time I have had some fun using the Ranger Bridal Tinsel embossing powder.  This gives a lovely sparkly effect to your embossing and I had some fun making these flowers using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose flowers out of vellum.  I have used Memento Angel Pink and Summer Sky inks to colour the back of embossed flowers before die cutting them out.  These colours matched the Sweet Lullaby papers beautifully.  I have found that I prefer to do little shaping on the vellum to get the full effect of the beautiful stamps.

Here is a close up of the blue flowers.  They are so pretty.

Romantic Floral Wedding Cards

Welcome Back

What could be more romantic than getting married under a beautiful bower of flowers and I have made a couple of cards that would be perfect for such a wedding.

For these cards I have used the Heartfelt Creations Classic Roses along with the new Wildwood Florals from the just released Wildwood Cottage Collection to create a bower of flowers over the Happy Couple (die from Sue Wilson).  I can’t believe that I have never used Brilliance inks before but I have now decided they are just beautiful to make luscious flowers with a hint of sheen for a stunning effect.  All the flowers and the green leaf swirls have been cut from white cardstock and coloured with the Brilliance inks.  I did go over the top of the flowers with Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay for a sparkly effect which is hard to see in these photos.

Romantic Triple Easel Wedding Card

Welcome Back

I have been meaning to do this triple easel card for sometime as it has intrigued me in how it was done.  I got very good instructions on how to make a triple easel card from Creative Expressions and this is my version of the card.  I can’t find the original post but here is another post with a triple easel card featuring different dies here.  It will give you the general idea about constructing a triple easel card.

20170113_184447-1-2

The original easel card just featured the Fleur de Lis Squares from Spellbinders but I decided to use the Labels 22 from Spellbinders more prominently and was happy with the result as the card was much stronger as well.  Of course I had to put some flowers on the card and the vellum flowers from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose stamp and die set was perfect for the soft romantic finish to the card.

I have used Bridal Tinsel embossing powder on vellum for a sparkly effect and it paired up well with the Angel Pink ink from Memento for just the softest of romantic touches to the white card.  The pearls on the Tied Together embossing folder from Couture Creations just finished off the card.  It is a small card and when folded up should fit in a standard A2 envelope and should be reasonably easy to post.

Here are the side views of the card:

Cream and Gold Elegant Cards

Happy New Year

Today I am featuring some cards that I have just made.  I know that foil card has been around for a while, but I have only just discovered it and I LOVE the effects and contrasts you can get with it.  I love the elegance combining gold and cream and they work well with a 50th anniversary card.   And of course I had to use the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose stamp and die sets to add the flowers and embellishments.

This  first card has been inspired by Jeannie Donnolly I had seen on Pinterest.

20170102_073834

I find it difficult making two cards the same and this one is no exception.  I had actually cut one of the Maggie dies incorrectly but ended up layering the dies under the main die image and used the Classic Border Basics cutting die from Heartfelt Creations to cut a strip to cover the gap and I was happy how it turned out.20170101_184549

The Gold Majestic Circle die from Spellbinders is a very interesting die with lots of lovely embossed textures on it and once again it is lovely for numbers for a milestone card.

20170104_152624

Finally, here is a card that I made that has no sentiment for any occasion but I think it looks very elegant for a special occasion.  I often get requests for plain unadorned cards.

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.

My next card:

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.

20161217_164726-2

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.

20161217_164610-2

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.
