Thank you!

Thought I would share this card I made, I LOVE the Flowering Dogwod
collection and just wanted to have a play and see what I made!
Here is my end result! 

My Aunt treated me to a new die! She is so lovely!
I fell in love with this card die as soon as I saw it from Crafter's Companion
(It's called Circle Swing Die) It's been on my desk a few weeks now and 
I just had to use it with the Flowering Dogwoods!

The back of the swing I cut a centre of a card front from the paper pad
and glittered it up. There is space to write in it or you can write on the back!

Have lots of crafty fun, it's raining here so I'm heading to my craft room! :)

Wedding Card & Colouring tips!

I'm loving using the Classic Wedding collection!
I stamped, cut and coloured lots of bells and bride and grooms
and I just want to use them!!! 

Of course I had to use the Classic Rose with my projects and they HAD to
to pink!!! lol you know me and pink!!!! 

Below is one way to colour the bells, you can of course
use any coordinating colour to go with any wedding colours!
The bells look great in Pink too!!!

EZ Coloring tips for quick & easy projects! These#bells are beautiful on #wedding #baptism#christening #anniversary cards and even#Christmas ones too! They are so versatile!
1. Stamp the image in black ink and colour the leaves, ribbon and flowers. We used Memento Pistachio and Brilliance Coral inks for this.
2. Using the coordinating die (Classic Wedding Bells) die cut the bells.
3. Using a silver ink pad and the precision daubers shade either side of the bells.
4. Glitter the pattern on the bells, the ribbons and roses and adhere a rose (From the Classic Rose collection) to the bell and then use on your projects!

Have lots of crafty fun making everlasting projects that will be 
treasured by friends and family for years to come.

Use one Stamp & Die to make some fun projects

Just a few of the ways I used the Snow Kissed Flakes and Tag die and stamp set
on my Facebook Live today for Heartfelt Creations!
Re-watch the video for some crafty tips and ideas HERE

Yes it's from a Christmas collection BUT it is so versatile and can be used
for so many many things!

I used the tag die as the closure on my envelope box below!

It's a perfect fit with the Classic Wedding Collection!
I'm thinking wedding favors, confetti boxes, name places, tags
cards, gift card holders....... it's endless!

I haven't got to make it yet but if you cut several of the tags out as cards
you can adhere them together to make a concertina tag card and decorate
with special messages on each side for the bride and groom!

The stamp lends itself to so many uses too! I used it with the emboss
resist technique but you could use it as backgrounds stamping small areas of it!
And of course it will work well with our Christmas collection this year too (Wink)

Have a fabulous day, will you be getting crafty today?
I hope so! Have fun!

EZ coloring tips for the Classic Wedding collection

It's Heartfelt Wednesday and we have a new release today!
Yay, I'm so excited for the Classic Wedding collection!

I put together a very very quick card as I wanted
to do a tutorial on an EZ way to colour the bride and groom for you!
Sometimes with new collections it can be daunting to know just where to
begin for your colouring. I still get the jitters when I pick up
my alchohol markers .............! 

Step 1: Stamp the image in black ink onto white card
and using a precision dauber colour the  bouquet with Brilliance Coral ink.

Step 2: Using silver ink and the precision dauber add some shading 
to the folds of the dress and the waistline.

Step 3: Colour the brides hair. As it is under a veil
don't colour it too heavily, keep it light so it looks
as though it is under the veil. I used a Dove Blender pen for this
with the Toffee Crunch ink.

Step 4: I added a little of the pink shading to the silver areas.
But not much! Using the fine tip with the dries clear glue follow the 
fold lines of the dress and veil and add dots on the bouquet and then cover in glitter.
Shake away the glitter and leave to dry.

Use your images on your wedding projects and have lots of crafty fun!

Decorated 3D envelopes

It's Fathers Day next weekend, so I thought I would make 
a fun decorated envelope that you can hand deliver a card in!
You can watch me on Heartfelt Creations Facebook HERE make this too!

Step 1: Using paper from the paper pad cut a piece of paper  6 1/4" x 10 3/4".
Top Tip: Cut and adhere another piece of paper to the back for a contrasting effect

Step 2: Score along the 10 3/4" side of the paper at 3/4", 5", 5 3/4" and 10"

 Step 3: Turn the paper around and score at 3/4"

Step 4: Cut between the score lines at either end in the centre along the base.

Step 5: Using a circle punch or die cut a semi circle from the centre of the front of the purse.

 Step 6:  Fold along all the score lines and adhere the base and side of the purse.

Step 7: Die cut a Tag (If you have used another piece of paper for a
contrasting effect cut another tag and adhere to the back of the first one)

Step 8: Score at 1/2" and 1 1/4" along the tag with the straight end of the tag
and fold along the lines.

Step 9: Adhere the 1/2" scored section to the inside of the back
of the envelope and ink all the edges,

Step 10: Make the flowers, I have a tutorial HERE to make them and
stamp, cut and colour the leaves.

Step 11: Die cut the pocket for the back and the tags and sentiment.
Adhere to the envelope along with the flowers and leaves.

Step 12: Cut a darker piece of paper from the pad at 4 1/4" x 1 1/2"
and a blight blue piece at 4 1/4" x 1 1/4".
Adhere the darker one to the envelope and then using 3D pads
adhere the light blue top.

Step 13: Stamp and die cut the Sentiment and adhere the flowers and leaves
to the front of the envelope.

Tip If you want to mat and layer the tags at the back of
the envelope the Luggage and Tags die layers perfectly with the
Tag from the Snow Kissed collection!

Instead of having a tag as a closing mechanism on the envelope turn it into
a bag, perfect for more feminine projects or weddings!
I have a tutorial coming soon for a notelet holder this way that you
can make as a gift or to sell too! They are a little bigger than this!

Just have fun being crafty!

Making Botanical Roses

I was asked how I made the flowers for my Photo Box project,
so I thought I would make a quick tutorial post!

Step 1: Stamp the Botanical Rose flower in brown ink and die cut with the 
Botanical Wings die. Colour the flower centres with ColorBox Harvest ink
and the outer of the petals with ColorBox Berrylicious ink. 

For each flower you will need two layers of the same size and one smaller
for the centres of the flowers.

Step 2: Ink the edges of the petals to create shading with the 
ColorBox Berrylicious ink.

Step 3: For the two larger layers. Mist the back of the petals and using the
  Flower Shaping Tools  shape the back of the flower.

Step 4: Turn the flower over and shape around the edge of the centre
to bring the petals upwards.

Step 5: For the smaller centre of the flower, colour the backs of the petals and
shape from the front of the petals in a straight motion to bring the flower inwards. 

Step 6: Adhere the layers together so the petals overlap the gaps on each layer.

Step 7: To make smaller individual flowers use the smaller flowers and snip
with scissors along the lines on the back.

Step 8: Turn the flower over to the back and mist and shape.

Step 9: Tun the flower to the front and using a small shaping tool 
shape the centres so the petals come upwards.

Step 10: Adhere Prills to the flower centres. Stamp, colour, cut and shape
the Classic Rose Vines to go with your flowers.

All that is left to do now is use them on your projects!
Have fun!
