Heartfelt Creations - Classic Rose Memento Box

September 21 post





Beautiful in color, exquisite in fragrance,  the rose is one of the most coveted flowers found in chic bouquets, or carefully tended flower gardens. 

 Breathtaking in bud form, as a blossom gently opening, or in full bloom, it is a flower that calls attention to itself and beckons you to pause and quietly reflect upon its elegance.  

Heartfelt Creations invites you to stop, fall quiet and immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the new Classic Rose Collection!

Classic Rose Die

Espresso Truffle Memento Dye Ink Pad
Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit

 X-Press It Blending Card Stock, electric die cut machine,  Embossing/die cut machine, paper trimmer,  Fossilized Amber Distress Ink, Forest Moss Distress Ink,  Glue Gun, dried baby breath, green ribbon, Copics Alcohol Ink Markers: YO2, Y06, YO8, Y15, YR24.  The svg file was Mom's Garden Gifts.  The link is HERE


The rose images were stamped on X-Press It Blending Card Stock with Espresso Truffle Memento Dye ink.    The leaves were stamped on green card stock.  I colored the roses with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers but any coloring medium would work perfectly.   I used Copic Y02, Y06, Y08, Y15, YR24.    The roses and leaves were then die cut.   The roses and leaves were lightly spritzed with a fine mist of water and shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.   Emma Lou has a wonderful video on how to shape the dimensional roses  HERE

The roses were sponged with Fossilized Amber Distress Ink.   The leaves were sponged with Forest Moss Distress Ink.   

The gift box was created from  the svg file called Mom's Garden Gifts (svgcuts.com).   The link is listed  under "other supplies".    The box was cut without altering the file.  It is an easy box to cut, fold and glue.   I used Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.   The designer paper I used came directly from the Classic Rose Paper Collection.  Isn't it gorgeous?!!!   

A touch of Designer Dries Clear Adhesive was applied to a few of the flower edges and sprinkled with white Gala Glitz.   I love this stuff!  I think hit is my new addiction! 
Ribbon was tied around the gift box and the  leaves and roses were adhered.   And now the final touch was done by adding some small pieces of baby breath. The gift box is now ready to be given to someone special!    


Close-Up image of the Classic Roses and Leaves.   

I hope you enjoyed my gift box !   
I always love creating various size and shapes of gift boxes! 
I particularly enjoy adding the beautiful roses and spray of leaves to 
an accent!       

Thank you so much for stopping by!

 Stamp, color and die cut Classic Roses.  Die cut one  Classic Rose Vine. I stamped my images on X-Press It Blending Card Stock but you can use any Copic compatible paper.
 I used the following Copic Alcohol Ink Markers - RV 21, RV35, RV29, R59 and a touch of Y15 (sparingly) to the highlight.   

You can watch Emma Lou create  gorgeous flowers from the Classic Rose Collection HERE

Create a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card with a top fold.  A mat from he designer paper was cut at 5 1/2 x 5 1/5 inches.  A burgundy mat was cut at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches.  Lightly draw a line at 1 inch intervals in horizontally and vertically.   

Distress and adhere the layers to the card base. Select a  designer paper from the Rose Collection Designer Paper Collection that has a pictures of a beautiful winery and  vineyard. Cut this layer at 5 x 5 inches. Cut in 1 inch strips.   I found it easiest to cut a lateral 1 inch strip and cut again vertically in 1 inch strips.  

Adhere to the burgundy layer of card stock, using your lines as a guide.  Leave a slight space in-between each square.    
Repeat with each strip.   

Adhere the shaped Rose Vine and Classic Rose clusters for embellishment.

Heartfelt Creations Vintage Winter Box Card





Today I had some fun with a Vintage Winter Box Card.  
I used the gorgeous paper, stamp and die sets from Heartfelt Creations' August release - 
Snow Kissed Collection

When I think of the Winter Holidays and Christmas, I think of "Vintage".  
I love the vintage theme that takes us to memories past.    
Thank made me want to create a vintage themed card 
that has the crisp and chilly feel of Winter. 


HCDP1-269  Snow Kissed Paper Collection
HCD1-7107   Frolicking Frosty and Spruce Die Set
HCPC-3740  Snow Kissed Spruce Cling Stamp Set
HCD1-745  Luggage and Tags Die

173842 - Scor Pal Measuring and Scoring Board 
DDots - Dimensional Foam Dots
159723 - Designer Dries Clear Adhesive
352854 - Metal Glue Tip 

 White card stock, navy blue card stock, opaque white ink, Vintage Photo Distresss Ink, Weathered Wood Distress Ink,  diecut/embossing machine, paper trimmer, double sided tape,  Star Dust  Clear Stickles,  self adhesive silver pearls, Box Card SVG Kit - from svgcuts.com


The box card was cut from the Box Card SVG Kit from svgcuts.com.   The layers were cut from navy blue card stock and the light blue designer paper from  the Snow Kissed Paper Collection.  The spruce tree was stamped on the background of the designer paper using Weathered Wood Distress Ink.   I continued to stamp 3 times with the stamp without re-inking in order to give a dimensional look.  I repeated the process.  

 The box was easy to assemble with the directions that came with the kit.  I omitted the design elements that came with the SVG Box  Kit (see other product list).   I substituted various sizes of spruce trees, a tag from Luggage and Tag's Die set and  snowflakes.  For the tag, I selected designer paper that had a snowman image.  Silver pearls were adhered to the center of the snowflakes.

The edges of the box card was sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink for that vintage look.  The box was embellished with Star Dust Stickles.    I love how the card folds flat for mailing. 



Smile for the Day


Thank you 
so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my vintage box card.  
I hope you check out all the August stamps and die from heartfelt Creations 
and come back and see the new September release next week.

The Outlawz - Twisted Thursday : Butterfly Gift Tag





Welcome!

I would love to share my guest designer  project I created for The Outlawz - Twisted Thursday.
I love tags and my eyes lit up when I saw this gorgeous take digital image from Bugaboo Stamps!    

Our fabulous sponsor is
Sponsor Bugaboo
For my tag, I colored the image with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers. 
I tried to use different colors but wanted to keep the B00 and  B10 consistent in each butterfly.
I added some white opaque white to the wings.    

The other thing I love to do is to create fun backgrounds!    I used  some BV000 and BV00 around the butterflies.   I saturated some burlap with 70% rubbing alcohol and applied it to the background for 3-4 seconds.   Isn't that fun?!   I love doing this!   


Thank you for stopping by and come back soon!

Heartfelt Creations - Frolicking Frosty!


Frolicking Frosty the Snowman is a cute stamp and die set from 
Now how cute is that!   This card makes up in no time and is super easy to create!  
The gorgeous scenes that come in the Snow Kissed Paper Collection 
sets the tone for your card!    



Snow Kissed Paper Collection
Frolicking Frosty Cling Stamp Set
Frolicking Frosty and Spruce Die Set
Snow Kissed Spruce Cling Stamp Set
Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink Pad
Scor Pal Measuring and Scoring Board
Dots - Dimensional Foam Dots
Designer Dries Clear Adhesive
Metal Glue Tip
Blue Gala Glitz
White Gala Glitz


120 lb white card stock
Blue card stock
X-Press It Blending Card Stock (or any Copic compatible paper)
Copics Alcohol Ink Markers
Opaque white ink
Weathered Wood Distress Ink
Die - Embossing machine
Paper Trimmer
Double sided tape
post-it Note


Cut  5 1/2 inch x 11 inch white card stock for your card base.   Score and create a crisp fold at 5 1/2 inches.  The base layer was cut from blue card stock and measures 5 1/4 in. x 5 1/4 in. For the scenic background, I selected a paper with spruce trees and a  small snowman that would match Frosty.  The designer paper was cut at 5 inches x 5 inches.  Frolicking Frosty was stamped on  X-Press It card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink.  Memento Ink is compatible with Copic Markers and will not discolor the nibs.

The image was colored with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers.  I used the following color combinations -  G40, YG61, YG63, YG39, C3, C5, C7, C9, YR20, YR24, B0000, B000, B21 and a touch of R20 to the cheeks.  I speckled the image with opaque white ink to look like snowflakes. The image was die cut using the Frolicking Frosty and Spruce Die.

I masked the image on the designer paper with a Post-It Note  and stamped some spruce trees with Weathered Wood Distress Ink.  I created dimension by using a "stamp off" technique.  The tree was stamped and then stamped a second and third time in different areas without re-inking the stamp.  This will allow some trees to look like they are in the distance.   This is a fun technique that can be used on many scenes.    I used an opaque white ink pen and dotted the trees in areas to look like snow.

The layers were adhered with double sided tape.   Frosty was popped up on the paper with dimensional foam dots.  For a little added bling - I used Designer Adhesive - Dries Clear Glue and dotted it in the sky.  I then added white and blue Gala Glitz.

Heartfelt Creations - Winter Wonderland!


Just hear those sleigh bells! 

Welcome! 
I am so excited to share a trifold card I created with
Heartfelt Creations August Release -
Snow Kissed Collection! 

I love getting a jump start on all my Christmas cards! 
The new collection of paper, stamps and die 
make it so easy! 

Heartfelt Creations' Products
 Snow Kissed Paper Collection
 Snow Kissed Spruce Cling Stamp Set
Cut Mat Create 1B
 Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink
Double Dots 3D Foam Circles
Scor Pal Measuring and Scoring Board

Other Products
120 lb white card stock, green card stock, X=Press It Blending Card Stock, Stickles, Double sided tape, Opaque white ink, Copic alcohol ink markers, paper trimmer and die cut machine.


Instructions
  1. Cut white card stock at 5 1/2 inches x 11 inches and score at 5 1/2 inches. Cut two green base layers at 5 1/4 in. x 5 1/4 inches.
  2. I selected the paper with the green boughs and river scene from Snow Kissed Paper Collection and cut at 5 in. x 5 in.
  3. The focal image was stamped with the sleigh on X-Press It Blending Card Stock. My image was colored with the following Copic alcohol ink markers - E30, E33, E35, E39, B000, B21, Y11, RV000, RV00, RV11,   G40, G43 and YG63. I accented the boughs, river and trees with opaque white ink. You can use any in medium you prefer and paper that is comparable with your color medium.
  4. The focal image was die cut with the Cut Mat Create 1B die. I used some reserved green card stock to mat the focal image. I drew a line around the outside of the die I used for the focal image and scissor cut it to create the mat for the focal image.
  5. A tag was selected from the paper collection that had an image of a small sleigh and I matted it with the green card stock.
  6. The layers were adhered to the inside of the card with double sided tape . The front of the card was scored and folded with a crisp fold at 2 1/4 inches and folded with a mountain fold.  The two pieces of designer paper should be facing each other.    This allowed the bough and tree from the inside of the card to show even when the  try-fold card is closed. The focal image and sentiment were popped up with foam dimensional dots and adhered as shown in the picture.
  7. And now for some added sparkle - I applied Stickles to the river, snow and trees. Clear Designer glue and white Gala Glitz would have been gorgeous! I wish I would have thought of that sooner!

Instructions
  • Create a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch white card base and 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch  base layer from navy blue card stock.  Cut a 5 x 5 inch white Copic compatible paper and  die  cut snow flakes  in an arch around the top of the paper.  I used the negative part of the snowflake die so the blue would show through.  You can save all the snowflakes that are loose for another project.   
  • Stamp the focal image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.   Color the image with Copic alcohol ink markers or the media of your choice.  I used Copic B0000, B000, B41,  G40, GY61, GY 63, GY67, Y13, YR15, R20, R22, R24,  R56, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
  • The inside of the card has a base layer of navy blue cut at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches.  I die cut a border of squares  at the bottom and threaded some navy and white baker's twine and tied a bow.  I selected the top layer from the Snow Kissed Paper Collection and trimmed it to fit with an even 1/8 inch  border.   The layers were adhered with double sided tape.  
  • White opaque dots  were applied for  a snowy look.     Specks of designer glue that dries clear were applied  to the snowflakes and snow.   I sprinkled  some gorgeous white Gala Glitz for some extra shine.
