Girls Night Out!

Hello Friends!

Happy Wednesday!  Today's card once again features the latest release from Heartfelt Creations called All Glammed Up! 

I used one of my new favorite dies from the collection that is brilliantly fun and versatile.  This oval die comes in three parts so you can use them in multiple ways. 

For this card, I used two of the parts.  I used the outer scalloped edge die of the oval to create the frame work of the oval on my card.

Then I used the eyelet oval plate to create the eyelet oval background in the center of the card.  I love the pretty and delicate texture it adds!

The lacy black shoe and little gold bow are also dies that come in this collection!

So much fun to play with, so many ideas in my brain and so little time!!

Here's the Heartfelt Creations products I used to make this card:
HCDP1-260 All Glammed Up Paper Collection
HCD1-776 Eyelet Oval Die
HCD1-774 All Glammed Up Shoe Die

The card I created was designed to showcase the corner border die that can be cut as a border (as I've done here) or the die will cut out the entire image if you prefer, to be used as an embellishment.  Be sure to watch this video on the HC Blog today to see how the die works!

I also used one of the new dies to cut out the shape of the shoe from double-sided adhesive paper so I could add micro beads to the image.   I just laid the die cut adhesive over the image and poured the clear beads over it. 

There's so much to love about this collection, and there's so much more to come this month show casing all the wonderful products that are part of this collection.  You'll be awed and inspired when you check out all the samples the DT has come up with!  Be sure to take a peak!

Italiana Riviera Bliss Card

 Hi Everyone!

I have another card to share with you using the Italiana Riviera Collection.  When I made this card, I had just purchased a Zutter Distress-it-all and of course I had to try it on everything!  I'm just shredding every edge I come across these days LOL!

So as you can see here, this card is the result of distressing multiple layers of patterned papers from the paper collection and then layering them together to create the card base. 

I stamped and die cut several of the coordinating ivy vines from the  collection.  Then I also stamped, die cut and shaped several Mini Vintage Floret Roses and added them to the card.  The image of the wine bottle is another stamp from the Italiana Riviera Collection.  I colored the image with Copic markers and added some swirly bling popping out of the top of the bottle.

The "bliss" embellishment on the upper right corner of the card is is a wood veneer piece that I embossed with gold embossing powder.

Double Flip Photo Card!

Hi Friends!

I've been in paper-craft heaven these days! Heartfelt Creations is absolutely going over the top crazy with the upcoming releases - you won't believe the goodies coming your way for Black Friday and beyond.  That's all I can say for now, just know you will be blown away!!

Meanwhile, I have been happily playing with the beautiful Italiana Riviera Collection - the gorgeous rich purples and green foliage are so inspiring!  I created a "Double Flip Card" this week that features a pair of dies that when used together, result in a wonderfully intricate and decorative border for your projects.  Emma Lou did a great video with instructions on how to use the dies that you will want to watch here

For my card, I first created the main 6"x6" card base and then layered a second full card on the front to make it a double-flip card.  The top card is actually smaller so it presents as if it is just one of the layers on the card.

I used the vine border dies on the top card to get the lush edge and even created a second layer of the border, just 'cause it's so gorgeous!!

When you flip up the top card, here's what's inside:

Then flip up the inside and you get to the second layer of the "double-flip card" (the photo is from the Heartfelt Creations family photo album!):

And since I'm showing lots of pictures today :0) , here's another look at the front of the card showing the die cut leaves and grapes that I added to complete the design:

All the measurements and the step-by-step instructions are posted on the Heartfelt Creations blog today!  Stop by and check it out and see what the rest of the designers have created!  They are a talented crew, you won't be disappointed!!

Have a blessed week everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Italiana Wine and Vines Card

Hi All!

Happy to have you stop by today!  This week's card features Heartfelt Creation's newest Italiana Riviera Collection that debuted last week! 

I stamped and gold-embossed the script background using the Italiana Script stamp on the front of the card.  Next I chose a card panel from the gorgeous paper collection that featured a grape border across the bottom.  I cut away the center white area using my trusty Gyrocut craft knife and then adhered the resulting frame with dimensional foam tape to create a window-style card. 

Next I stamped and die cut several ivy leaves and a couple of grape bunches.  The grapes were colored in with Copic markers and the leaves were created from green cardstock and gold embossing powder.  I then stamped and die cut the wine bottle and glass in Black Stazon onto gold metallic paper.   I tucked those into the image among the grapes and used gold Peel-Off stickers to embellish across the bottom of the frame to complete the card!

Here's the Heartfelt Creations products I used today:
HCDP1-259 Italiana Riviera Paper Collection
HCD1-773 Italiana Grape Clusters Die
HCD1-772 Italiana Grape Vines Die
HCPC-33697 Italiana Grape Clusters Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3696 Italiana Grapevines Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3699 Italiana Script Cling Stamp Set 
The Heartfelt Creations Blog is overflowing with new, amazing inspiration and projects today!  Be sure to check it out!!

Have a blessed week everyone!  Thanks so much for being here!
