EZ Christmas cards & Flowers!



Christmas is getting closer! Wow it's not far now!
Have you got all your cards made? Shh I haven't but I am working on them!
Join me  LIVE over on the Heartfelt Creations Facebook page HERE
as I show you some quick and EZ ideas for your cards that you can make in 30 mins or less!
Even faster if you make all your flowers first!


The card fronts from the Paper Pad collections make
it so easy to make these quick cards!


Here is a quick tutorial showing you how I made my flowers 
with the new Poinsttia Flower shaping mold. 
WOW I love this tool! 
 Have fun! 


Step 1: Stamp the Poinsettia & Holly Cluster stamps. 
TOP TIP: Stamp them all on one sheet so they can be die cut in one pass. 
A great time saver! Plus if you have a large arcrylic block
you can stamp both the flowers at once and then th leaves at once too!


Step 2: Die cut the flowers and leaves using the Poinsettia & Holly Cluster Die.
TOP TIP: Run them all through at once as they are stamped on one sheet!
Place them into the mold, lightly spritz and then run through your die cutting machine.



Step 3: Tip the all of flowers and leaves out of the mold.


And then press the centres down with a flower shaping tool and glue two flowers
 together and place ontop of a holly leaf. 


TOP TIP: Add a dab of glue to the holly centre, place a flower on andadd another dab of glue to
the flower cenrte and then place the top flower on nd then press down in the centre. Its a time saver!


Step 4: Adhere prills to the flower centres.
You could also use stamens, if so use the piercing mat and tool from the 
Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to make a hole and add your stamen of choice.


Step 5: Using a sponge dab glue on the edges of the petals and cover with
Frosting Powder for a super effect!


WOW I made this many flowers in just two hours!
Such an EZ way to make flowers ready for your Christmas projects!

Here is what I used on these projects:
