For my card today, I began with a 6 x 6 white card base and added this beautiful paper from the Festive Holly collection.  Create a small border centered horizontally on the card.  Add the Believe in the Magic panel backed with white card stock.  Also add the small Christmas Blessings panel, again backed with white card stock.  Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp and die cut the holly pieces from the Festive Holly and Cardinals Cling Stamp Set and coordinating Die Set.   Color with Prismacolor pencils and add snow accents with a Marvy Snow Marker.  Adhere to the card with dimensional foam.

Thanks for visiting and good luck with the blog hop.

Heartfelt Creations Tropical Three


One of the great things about Heartfelt Creations collections is how easy it is to make a stunning card in very little time using only the paper collection.  Here are three cards I created using only the Tropical Paradise Paper Collection.  Simply choose a panel you like and trim the outer edge off.  Then mix and match the papers until you find a combination you like.  Create a 6" x 6" card base and add a background DP.  Back your trimmed panel with card stock and pop it up on the card base.  For this type card, I like to use two layers of chipboard rather than dimensional foam.  It gives a firmer platform for the panel and a more professional look.  Trim out a matching sentiment from the paper pack, back it with card stock and chipboard and mount that to the card as well.  You can glitz them up with glitter if you choose but I think they are stunning as is.

Heartfelt Creations Monkeying Around


Today is new release day for Heartfelt Creations and the design team is showcasing the Monkeying Around collection.  I have made an adorable shadowbox from the 6" x 6" Foldout Cards set.  First I added a background DP to the shadowbox, then using the front opening as a template, I traced around it and hand trimmed a front panel.  I stamped each element from the collection onto Cryogen Metallic paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  After coloring them with Copic markers I began to build my scene.  There are 3 fins in the bottom of the shadow box to which you can adhere your images.  I added a lot of palm fronds as well as the top of one of the coconut trees for ground cover.  Then it was just a matter of adding all the monkeys.  The stamped image in the front right does not have a matching die but it is quite simple to hand trim.  I added some flowers on the upper right, embossing with my stylus tool for some shape.  


Be sure to add a DP panel to the back to finish the project.

Heartfelt Creations Wine Bottle Gift Tag


For my Heartfelt Creations project today, I have used the Italiana Riviera  collection to create a cute wine bottle gift tag.  Begin with a 4" x 10.5" plum card stock base, scoring at 4 1/4" from the top.  Add a piece of DP to the top section, then cut a hole for the bottle neck.  Using a deeper purple panel 6" x 5/5", die cut the grape vine along the 5.5" side then trim down to 5" wide and adhere to the lower plum panel.  Trim the edge of a DP panel in the same fashion and add to the deep purple panel.


Using the Tag die, cut out the green grapes tag, back with deep purple card stock and add a ribbon.  Trim the wine bottle and grape panel out with the coordinating die from the Cut Mat Create 1A die set and adhere to the DP panel.  Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Curious Cryogen Metallic paper, stamp a large grape cluster and a small one and cut out with the coordinating dies.  Color with Copic markers.  Using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit,  add some dimension to the grapes and the leaves before adhering with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive to the tags as shown in the photo.  Lastly trim out the sentiment panel, back with deep purple card stock and adhere as shown.
