Create a water lily flower by cutting the lily pad freehand from green cardstock.   Create the water lily with the Sun Kissed Fleur Stamp and die set.   The flower petals were cut  with the coordinating die and sponged the Guacamole for the green leaves and Squeezed Lemonade for the flower petals. They were shaped with the Deluxe Flower Shaping tool and adhered with Dries Clear adhesive.  The stamen were adhered with glue.   An 8 inch piece of goldenrod quilling strip (or 1/8 inch lightweight cardstock) was coiled tight with a quilling tool.  A 1/4 inch purple strip was clipped along the side with a fine scissor and wrapped around the yellow coil.  It was adhered on top of the stamen for the flower center.
 







Good Luck to you!

  • Cut the lamp from the Christmas Eve SVG file and assemble per the instructions.  Black cardstockwas used for the frame and the designer paper was from the Festive Holly Paper Collection.  Thread a Darice brass planted candle lamp through the SVG frame. the edges of the lamp were sponged with Black Soot Distress Ink to give a vintage look.
  • Stamp the holly leaves and cardinal on X-Press it Blending Cardstock Guacamole ink.  Do not be concerned about the berries and cardinal being stamped with a light green.  Green is a complement to red and will appear a light brownish color .   This will add dimension and contour to your image.  The following Copic color combo was used - (Berries - R20, R21, R22, R24, Cardinal - R00, R20, R21, R22, C1, C3 and  C5).   Die cut with the coordinating die. The leaves were gently shaped with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.


  • The Classic Rose stamp was stamped on white cardstock using Desert Sand Dye Ink and die cut using the coordinating Classic Rose Die.   For a vintage look, the leaves were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a small amount of Berrylicious Fluid Chalk Ink.  The petals were lightly misted with water and shaped with the Deluxe Flower shaping Kit.   Crackle Paste was applied and sprinkled with Frosting Powder. The petals were heat set.   Emma Lou has a wonderful tutorial on creating roses HERE


  • A christmas red ribbon was tied around the street lamp. The holly and cardinal images, and roses were applied  with a glue gun.  Safety Alert - This can be plugged into a light socket but make certain to not leave it unattended.  



I also want to share another classic Christmas card featuring the Festive Holly and Cardinals Stamp and Die set fro Heartfelt Creations.    It's another take on Merry and Bright!

Create a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch top folding card using heavy white cardstock.  Cut and adhere pumpkin base layer cut at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches using double sided tape for extra strength.   Select the yellow designer paper from the Festive Holly Paper Collection.  Cut at 5 x 5 inches.  Apply Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the Gemstone Embossing Folder and emboss the designer paper.   Sponge edges with the Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Apply Clear Crackle Paste to the edges and sides of the designer paper and sprinkle with Frosting Powder.  Heat set until it turns white.  Adhere designer layer to the card.   Die cut the Festive Holiday decorative die  from pumpkin cardstock and adhere it to the upper part of the card as shown.  

Stamp the pomegranate using the HollyBerry Jingle Stamp Set.   I used Olive Grove ink on X-Press It Cardstock.  The image was colored with the following marker combos - Pomegranate -  R00, R11, R20, R22, R24, R56, YG11, YG61 - Leaves -YG99, YG95, YG93, YG91, Berries - R20, R22, R24, R27, R58, opaque white ink - Cinnamon Stick - E00, E11, E13, E15, E19, E08.  Die cut with the coordinating die.

Stamp the poinsettia flowers  from the Sparkling Poinsettia stamp set on white and green cardstock with Desert Sand Ink.  I selected this ink so I could have an invisible line and could use it for the two different colored flowers.   I used the largest petal  for my green leaves.  Cut the petals using the Sparkling Poinsettia Die Set.  Sponge with Berrylicious and Guacamole Chalk Ink.  Lightly spritz the petals with a water mini mister and  shape the petals with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  Adhere the layers and apply the Crackle Paint, sprinkle with frosting powder and heat set. 

Apply the focal image with dimensional dots and adhere the poinsettia's with a glue gun to finish your  festive Holiday card.

Heartfelt Creations - Just a Country Christmas




Hello everyone!   I don't know about you but we are experiencing triple digit temperatures in the Valley Springs area of California!   Whew!  I could use some of the chilly, snowy weather that bites your nose when you walk outside the door!  LOL   

Today I created a card with the Festive Holly Stamp and Die set from Heartfelt Creations!  💕💕

Cut a top fold card at 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches from heavy white cardstock. Cut the base layer from olive green cardstock at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches.  Cut the designer paper from Festive Holly Collection at 5 x 5 inches.   Add some additional snow with the gel pen on the designer paper and sponge edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink using Stack & Store Daubers.   Add some twine and adhere the layers with double sided tape.   
Stamp the image with the cardinals and the wheel from the Festive Holly Stamp Set onto Copic compatible paper.  I used X-Press It.  The image was colored with the following Copic color combo - (Birds R20, R22, R24, R27, C1, C3, C5, C7 - Berries R20, R22, R24, R59 - Leaves YR13, YG61, YG63, YG67, GY95 - Wheel E30, E33, E35, E37, E47).   Die cut the image with the coordinating die.  Cut 4 additional die cut images from dark brown or black cardstock.   Adhere the layers of the brown die cut on top of another and adhere to the colored image using Dries Clear Adhesive.  This will add strength and some dimension to the focal image.  Pop up the focal image on the left side of the card using dimensional foam dots. 

Stamp the sentiment with Versamark Ink and emboss with white powder. Heat set.  Die cut with a tag tie and add snow using various size dots with a white gel pen.   Pop the tag up using dimensional dots and apply a rhinestone to the bow.  
Apply a generous coat of Clear Crackle Paint the the bottom of the card and to the top of the wheel as shown.   Sprinkle with a generous amount of Frosting Powder and heat set.   This will complete a winter, snowy look to your holiday card.
