Sunflower Tutorial

I LOVE this time of year! I get to make lots and lots of sunflowers!
I use them for some Thanksgiving cards I have to send to the USA and I 
have a few birthday cards in autumn too!

Here is a quick & EZ tutorial for you to make them too!
Have fun!

Stamp the Classic Sunflower in brown ink on white card and shade with Cantaloupe ink.

Die cut the flowers with the Classic Sunflower die and shade the petal tips with
Memento Potters Clay ink.

Using the flower shaping tools spray the backs of the flowers with water and then
shape each petal so that they come inwards.

Turn the flower over and using a circular motion around the line shown in the
picture above shape so that the petal come upwards.

Pinch the tips of the flowers for added shape. Using a sponge
apply glue over the flowers and cover with Crystal Clear Powder.

Add Prills to the flower centres and your flowers are complete!
Have fun making flowers, these sunflowers go perfect with the new
Beary Fun Retreat collection! Perfect for all your autumnal cards!

Make a Window shaped card - Tutorial

Creating a shaped card with the Botanic Window Die is EZ
and can be done in 30 mins or less!

I was LIVE on Heartfelt Creations FaceBook Page 
showing you just how EZ this really is! Watch HERE

There are two ways to make a card, a side fold or a tent fold.
Here is how to make a tent fold card first.

Step 1: Take a 4 1/2" wide and 6" long tent folded piece of card.

Step 2: Lay the card over the die so you have a gap in the top
of the arch as in the pic below.

Step 3: Run through the die machine and you should have a die cut like the one below.

Step 4: Cut a single die cut and adhere this to the front of the card
and you have a card base to work from.

For the card above I die cut the outer of the inner window die,
inked the edges, stamped a sentiment and adhered with 3D
foam pads  and added flowers and leaves and it's done!

To make it as a side fold card you will need a side folded piece of card
4 1/2" wide and 6" long.

Step 1: Lay the folded side of the card onto the die and tape down. 
The fold needs to be on the inside of the outer cut line down the 
bottom side of the die as in the pic below.

Step 2: Run this through your die cutting machine and your die cut
will be as the pic below.

Step 4: Cut a single die cut and adhere this to the front of the card
and you have a card base to work from. I cut mine in pink paper
from the Winters Eve collection.

For the above card I cut the outer die of the inner window using
paper from the Winters Eve collection and then die cut the inner part
to create the window bars from pink paper. 
Adhering both to the card front and adding flowers and a sentiment.

There are so many options of how you can make this card, use clear card to 
see through the front to the inside and add scenic papers inside the card!

Add a scenic die cut to the front and decorate with flowers.

Make the front with clear card and see right through so the inside becomes part of the front!

Or just cut out and layer all the bits on the front!
The choice is yours! Just have fun making some cards with this die!

This shape is perfect for wedding, christening, baptism, 
confirmation and sympathy cards and invitations!
Happy crafting!

quick & EZ flowers for your Christmas projects using 
the Celebrate the Season collection from Heartfelt Creations.
Have fun making lots of these!

Step 1: Stamp the Poinsettia flowers from the Celebrate the Season collection in black ink. Using the Precision Daubers shade over the leaves in green ink and the flowers in ColorBox Berrylicious ink.

Step 2: Using the coordinating dies die cut all the flowers and leaves.

Step 3: Add color to the petal centres by using the triangular tip of the dauber
and shade upwards from the centre.

Step 4: See the photo for what your flower should now look like.

Step 5: Using the Deluxe Flower Shaping tool set shape the leaves from the back of the die cut.

Step 6: Turn the leaves over and press down into the centre of the leaves.

Step 7: Shape the flowers from the back with the shaping tool.

Step 8: Turn the flower over and press down in the centre so the petals raise.

Step 9: Using a sponge and dries clear glue, apply the glue over the flowers and cover with Crystal Clear Powder to create a sparkly flower! TIP: Press down in the centre again with your shaping tool to bring the petals back up.

Step 10: Adhere prills to the flower centres. Use your beautiful flowers on your Christmas projects!

Christmas Shadow Box

I wanted to share with you a project I made LIVE on Heartfelt Creations
Facebook page before I went on holiday!
You can watch the video HERE to see all the measurement and
how I made this wrap around shadow box.

I was inspired by the one Rajni Chawala made when these
Foldout Card blanks and dies were released.
I finally got to make one too!

I made a pocket on the inside so messages and photo's can be added.

And the shadow box itself I put all the presents inside to make it feel as though they 
were beneath the tree Christmas morning!

I wanted to create a story from the front, it's like you are looking inside through the window
and then when you open it up you see all the gifts and the little girl
by the Christmas tree. Of course I used lots of glitter on this!!! lol! 

I had such crafty fun with this project! I can't believe I have only just used this shadow box now when it was released last year! 

Have lots of crafty fun!

I used the following stamps and dies to make my project.
