A Handmade Card

Hi Friends,

I went back to the Farmers Market Collection for today's post.  It still reigns as one of my all-time favorites but I hadn't played with the apple images from the collection yet so that's where I started.

I stamped the Basket with Bottle image from the Apple Harvest Cling Stamp Set, colored it with Copic Markers then fussy cut the image out.  I attached it to another card I had started that was made with papers from the same collection, and somehow the two just seemed to go together.

Pretty simple project this week!

Hope Window Card

Hi Friends,

This card is created from the Enchanted Mum collection but I didn't add any mums to the card!  I used only the papers from the collection and the dragonflies.  I love that this technique is easily do-able with every paper collection that HC comes out with since they have so many amazing design patterns to choose from in a paper pad.

To create my card, I simply chose a card panel that had a border that I wanted to use and cut away the center to make a "window" (using my awesome GyroCut craft knife!).  I then trimmed one of the sheets of patterned paper that has the word "Hope" printed on it down to the same size as the window panel and adhered it to a card base made from white card stock.  I adhered the window panel using foam tape on top of my card front to give it dimension and create the window effect, I finished it off by adding dragonflies, sequence and lots of glitter!  Pretty easy!

Here are the Heartfelt Creations products I used on my card:
  • HCDP1-258 Enchanted Mum Paper Collection
  • HCPC -3693 Enchanted Dragonflies Cling Stamp Set
  • HCD1-770 Enchanted Dragonflies Die

Have a Wonderful Day!

Hello Friends!

Today's card features the gorgeous Enchanted Mums Collection again. I paired the mums with the Peacock Paisley paper collection for my card and I kinda liked it!

I created my mums by stamping onto velum and heat embossing a fun, sparkly "Tequilla Sunrise" EP that I've had in my stash since back in the days when I was hording EP!  (It's always fun to go back through your stash to see what goodies you can find in there!) I added pink, orange and yellow colors of Distress Inks to the back of the die cut mums before shaping them.  (For instruction on shaping the mums, check out this video.)

Once they were shaped and assembled into two mums, I dropped an emerald green gem into the centers and attached the mums to my card. I also die cut and shaped a couple of the large leafy vines from the Cut Mat Create 2A die set and sponged Sapphire Distress Ink onto the leaves to create depth. I attached them to the sides of the card front, then added some swirly pearl bling, some die cut dragonflies and Stickles glitter to finish off the design.

Here's a list of the HC Products I used:

HCDP1-252 Peacock Paisley Paper Collection
HCPC -3691 Enchanted Mum Cling Stamp Set
HCD1-768 Enchanted Mum Die
HCD2-751 Cut Mat Create 2A Die

Enchanted Mums Happiness Card

Hello Friends!

This new Enchanted Mum Collection is so much fun to work with! The blossoms have fabulous dimension, they're quite impressive!!  I love how quickly they come together and how many ways you can shape them!  I stamped and die cut a set of mum blossoms in several different colors (just one pass give you 3 full petals and 5 dragon flies!) and now I have a variety of petals to choose from to make my mums.

For my card for this week,  I combined a variety of the petal colors into one flower.  This card coordinates with my altered project from last week using the same bright colored papers, stamps and dies.  I also used a swirly mum stamp and coordinating die (the green piece) from the Enchanted Mum Bouquet Cling Stamp Set.

These are the HC products I used on this card:
HCDP1-258 Enchanted Mum Paper Collection
HCPC -3691 Enchanted Mum Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3692 Enchanted Mum Bouquet Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3694 Single Enchanted Mum Cling Stamp Set
HCD1-768 Enchanted Mum Die
HCD1-769 Enchanted Mum Bouquet Die
HCD2-752 Cut Mat Create 2B Die
