Pink Sunrise Lilies

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Today I am featuring something a little different from my usual cards.  I have been inspired by John Lockwood and his amazing creations.  Please visit his website here for the instructions on how to make this hexagonal frame here: http://johnnextdoor.blogspot.co.nz/2014/05/what-difference-year-makes.html?spref=pi

I have made the lilies using the Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily stamps and dies on foamiran.  I was happy with how the flowers turned out but foamiran is still a work in progress for me.

For the base of this I have used Sizzix hexagonal dies rather than measuring out the hexagons as John as done.  I embossed the smaller die and then cut the hexagon with the larger die.  I have still cut the tabs etc the same as what John has done but I thought this was a quicker and easier way of doing the base and it worked perfectly for me.  However, it is really important when cutting out the larger die size to measure with your ruler to make sure the edges are even to allow the base to sit evenly.

Have a good week – don’t forget to check in on Wednesday for the exciting release of the new Beary Fun Retreat Collection from Heartfelt Creations!

Time for Tea?

Welcome back.

I am so excited and humbled to announce that I have been chosen as a semi-finalist for the Heartfelt Creations Design Team.  I have been paper crafting for over 20 years and the Heartfelt Creations products are simply the best that I have used.  The papers are gorgeous and it is so easy to create a beautiful card with little effort. The stamps give a nice clean and crisp image and the coordinating dies cut with ease.  Put them all together and you can create amazing artwork.

I would be honoured if you would vote for me here: https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/blog/538/21-joyful-springtime-paper-crafting-ideas-sneak-peek-2017-design-team-semifinalists-announced

Here is a 3D project that I submitted as part of my application for the team.  I really enjoy making these projects as it is good to challenge myself and do something really different!

For this teapot and teacup I have used an SVG file from svgcuts.com.  I find their files extremely easy to use and there is minimal preparation with them and it takes longer to work out my cardstock and papers I am going to use.

Materials Used:

Cardstock – CTMH Colonial White, Timbrels White Cardstock, Heavy Chocolate

Paper – Sunrise Lily

Stamps – Sunrise Lily

Dies – Sunrise Lily

Deluxe Shaping Kit

SVG from svgcuts.com

Art Glitter Ultrafine glitter – Lion’s Mane

Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Overlay Marker

Art Glitter Dries Clear adhesive

Instructions:

Cut the teapot and teacup using the svg file from svgcuts.com.  I have used the Colonial White as the base and used the Sunrise Lily pink patterned paper to decorate the teapot and cup.

To make the flowers stamp using the Tuxedo Black ink and die cut.  Sponge the centres of the lilies with Canteloupe and the outside with Tangelo.  Brush the edges with Morocco ink for more depth.  Cut the stamens using the Chocolate cardstock.  Using the Deluxe Shaping Kit shape the flowers and assemble them following these instructions from Emma Lou here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWpNGmM7LjA&t=44s.

Cut the stamens out of the chocolate cardstock and curl them using using the shaping tool. Dot some Art Glitter Dries Clear adhesive on the tips of the stamens and dip into the Art Glitter Ultrafine Lions Mane glitter and once dry adhere them to the centre of the flowers.  Paint the petals with the Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle overlay.

Arrange the flowers around the teapot and teacup as shown.

Add a triple bow using the organza ribbon on the teapot and another double bow on the spoon and adhere a small lily on top.

A Heartfelt Wedding Project

Welcome back

Last week I took Gift Hutt to the Wellington Wedding Show showcasing some beautiful products in the shop.   So I took the opportunity to showcase the beautiful Sunrise Lilies from Heartfelt Creations with this decorated box made to look like a wedding cake.  I have made the lilies out of vellum and coloured the back of the flowers with copic markers.

A Heartfelt Wish for Mothers Day

Welcome back

I am on a roll with these beautiful Sunrise Lily stamps and dies from Hearttfelt Creation.  I have made some beautiful and vibrant flowers and a chance remark yesterday at my class led to me experimenting with some vellum.  I am thrilled how they turned out.

I embossed the flowers with white embossing ink on the vellum and then die cut the flowers out.  I coloured on the back of the flowers with copic markers and then shaped them with the same technique as used with cardstock.  I was pleasantly surprised how easy they were to shape and put together.  I love the softness of the colours and the white stamens looked beautiful inside the flowers.  Of course I had to add a little bling to the centres of the flowers.

My first card has been inspired by the very cute winking frog card from Heartfelt Creations.

My second card could be used for Mothers Day or any other special occasion.  I enjoy mixing and matching embossing effects.

Here are some closeups of the flowers.

Welcome back

Just a quick post showing you my creation using Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily flowers on a book card.  This is my first effort at using this svg file from Forever Memories that I have cut on my Cricut Explore and I will be changing a few things next time such as shaping the card a bit more and using foam dots for more dimension.

#HeartfeltCreations #ForeverMemories

Materials used:

Cardstock – American Crafts, CTMH Colonial White, White Daisy

Stamps – Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily

Die – Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily

Inks – CTMH Creme Brulee, Sorbet, Fern, Sweet Leaf, Blush

I am in the process of sourcing new inks as I am finding the CTMH inks fade very quickly in the sun in the window of the shop.

This card is for sale at Gift Hutt here.

Happy Crafting.
