The Fold Out Card - White, HCCFl-443-2 was selected.    This is a card base that is measures 4 1/2 inches x 5 1/2 inches when folded.  The fold out card base comes cut and pre-scored.   It doesn't get much better than that!    

The blue and green designer paper was selected from the  Pampered Pooches Collection.  The border die that matched  the curve on your flip-fold card was selected.  The border die was aligned on the designer paper and cut to fit the panels with a 1/8 inch border on sides and bottom.   A navy layer was cut for the last panel with a 1/8 inch margin.   The green designer paper with the dog collar was cut 1/4 inches smaller  on the top and side than the navy layer.   This gives a 1/8 inch border. 

The Fleur Border Die was used to cut the beautiful scalloped  border.  The layers were adhered with the Fleur Border sandwiched between the card base and designer paper.   

The sentiment was taken from the "Your Pawfect" Cling Stamp Set.   Memento Tuxedo Black ink was used to stamp the sentiment on white card stock.  A nesting circle die was used to cut the sentiment and a larger nesting die was used to create the navy sentiment mat.   The sentiment was popped up using dimensional foam dots.   

The flowers are created from  the Classic Rose Collection Cling Stamp set and coordinating die.   The roses were stamped using Memento Summer Sky and the leaves were stamped with Memento Olive Grove  Ink.  The images were  cut with the coordinating die.   The flowers were  sponged with the Summer Sky Ink and lightly misted on the back They were shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Kit.   The leaves were lightly sponged with Memento Olive Grove Ink.  They ere lightly spritzed with a water mini mister and highly shaped.  The flowers were adhered with Designer Adhesive - Dries Clear.   Emma Lou has a wonderful tutorial on creating roses HERE  

I love the Pampered Pooch Collection so much, I just had to create a second card for this week!

Create a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card using heavy white card stock.  I cut a 5 1/2 inch x 11 inch piece of heavy card stock and scored it  at 5 1/2 inches  using  the Score-Pal Measuring & Score Board.     The base layer was cut at 5 1/4 x 51/4 inch using  apricot card stock.  I cut this  twice.  The designer layer was  cut 5 x 5  twice.   Adhere the layers to the front and the inside  using double sided tape.  

Texture paste was  spread over the right lower corner over a stencil with a cute paw image.  I allowed the texture paste to dry.  It takes a few hours to fully dry.  If you are in a hurry, you can use a heat tool but be careful to not scorch the paste or designer paper. 

A circle nesting die was used  to  cut a circle through the layers of card stock at  the upper right hand side of the card.  I selected  designer paper with images of paws and cut a circle with two nesting die in order to create a band that would  mat the circle.   This will give it a finished look. 

The little pooch was stamped on  X-Press It Blending Card Stock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.   The pooch was colored using Copic Alcohol Ink Markers - C3, C5, C7, C9, R20, R22, R24.  The image was die cut using the coordinating die. I closed the front of the card flap and applied the colored  image from the front in order to center properly.  The pup's head was adhered using dimensional foam dots.  

I created a Daisy  flower embellishment.  I used Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp Set and Delightful Daisy die.   I stamped the image using Versamark Ink and white embossing powder.  The flowers were heat set.  The flowers were sponged with Fossilized Amber and Squeezed Lemon  Distress Ink.    I stamped the leaf using Tuxedo Black Dye ink.  The leaves were sponged using Olive Grove Die Ink.  

 The images were lightly spritzed with a mini mister on the underside to soften the fibers and shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Kit.   The layers of petals were adhered using Designer Adhesive - clear.   Prills were applied to the center.  I used the Ribbit bottle that came with the 12 pack set. Designer Adhesive - dries clear was applied to the leaves and sprinkled with Tailings Earth Textures Elements.   

The flower and leaves were applied using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.

Heartfelt Creations - I Wuff You

Hello and Welcome!   

It's Inspiration Wednesday for Heartfelt Creations!   
We get to play with  the Pampered Pooches Collection!   
This collection is super cute!   

Pampered Pooch Designer Paper Collection, HCDP1-275
Pampered Pooch Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3762
Classic Rose Cling Stamp Set, HCPC-3752
Classic Rose Die, HCD1-7110
Cut Mat Create 2B, HCD2-752
Cut Mat Create 2A, HCD2-751
Ranger Embossing Powder - White -  RPEJ685
Memento Dy Ink Pad - Olive Grove, TSMP708

Heavy weight white card stock, navy blue card stock, X-Press It Blending Card Stock,  light yellow card stock,  olive green card stock, Misty,  double sided tape, paper trimmer, mini mister,  colored pencils, Copic alcohol ink markers, pink and white Bakers Twine,  Champagne Glitter Pen, heat tool  and Versamark Ink Pad 

  • The card base was cut at 5 1/2 x 11 inches heavy weight white card stock.  Using the Scor-Pal Measuring & Scoring Board, score  at 5 1/2 inches and fold away from the groove to prevent cracking.   

  • The base layer was cut at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches using navy blue card stock.  The designer paper was selected from the Pampered Pooch Collection and cut at 5 x 5 inches.   I chose to cut another set of layers to adhere to the inside.  I adhered the layers using double sided tape.   The double sided tape will allow the layers to securely adhere to the card base even when heavier flower arrangements are applied.

  • The adorable pooch image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on X-Press It Blending Card Stock.   The image was coloring with the following Copic Markers E11, E31, E33, E35,  E15, Y11, R20, R22, R24, B00, B21, B24, RV11, RV32, RV34, G21, YG63, YG68.  I love texture so I added brown colored pencils to the puppy on top of the Copic markers.  Avoid coloring over the pencil with your Copic markers.    I loved the bubbles that was on the image so I added a few more bubbles for fun.   

  • The focal image and mat were cut using Cut Mat Create 2B and 2A die.   I also cut an additional white mat for the inside of the card to allow space for a personal message. 

  • The Sentiment was cut from the designer paper collection.   I love that all of  Heartfelt Creations designer paper collections come with sheets of papers that have  great tags, mats and sentiments.    

  • The Classic Rose Collection was stamped on light yellow card stock using  a Versamark Ink Pad and Ranger Embossing Powder - white.  The flowers were heat set and allowed to cool.    The leaves were stamped on green card stock using a Memento Olive Grove Ink Pad.  The leaves and flowers were shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.   I gently misted the under side of the petals to soften the fibers prior to shaping with the tools.  Emma Lou has a fabulous tutorial for shaping the flowers HERE.  

  • Baker Twine was coiled and applied to the card using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.   The matted focal image was adhered using dimensional foam dots.   The floral arrangement was adhered using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.   The sentiment was applied using a small piece of the foam dot and Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.   For a little sparkle - a dot of Champagne Glitter Pen was applied to the side of the sentiment tag.  

  • Your card is now ready to give to someone special!

Heartfelt Creations New Release - Woof

Welcome to my little corner of the world!   

Today is Inspiration Wednesday for Heartfelt Creations!     
This is the week we unveil our new release - 
Pampered Pooch Collection!    

HCPC 3760 - Paw-fect Pooches Cling Stamp Sett
HCD1-7116 - Paw-fect Pooches Die Set
TSMP900 Memento Dye Ink Pad - Tuxedo Black
159723 Designer  - Dries Clear Adhesive
352854 Metal Glue Tip - Art Institute
HCST401 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit
KSU-173842  Scor-Pal Measuring and Scoring Board
DDots -  Double 3 D Foam  Dots  

Rich  brown heavy card stock,  beige card stock, X-press It  (or any Copic Compatible card stock),  Copic markers, Colored Pencils, double sided tape and heart shaped sequins.

  • Cut a rich colored heavy  brown card stock at  5 1/2 inches x 8 8nches.  Scor  the paper at 4 inches to create a top-fold card.   Cut beige card stock at 5 1/4 inches x 3 3/4 inches.   Cut another beige layer for the inside of the card so you can write a personal note.    Adhere the beige layer to the top of the card using double sided tape.    

  • Stamp the row of adorable little pups from Paw-fect Pooches Cling Stamp Set using Tuxedo Black Dye Ink and Copic Compatible white paper.   Stamp the Bone on Copic Compatible paper.   The sentiment "woof" was stamped on the bone.    The pooch images and bone were colored using Copic  Alcohol Ink Markers.     I used C1, C3, C6, E30, E33 and E35.   I wanted to add more texture to the images so I used some dark grey and dark brown colored pencils to the darkest shadows.  I love adding extra texture but if you try this, make certain to apply the colored on top of your Copic or alcohol ink markers and not under the markers.   You don't want a waxy build-up on your marker nibs.    

  • The pooches and bone were cut with the coordinating die cuts.   I used a large ball tip from the Flower Shaping Kit to lightly apply a circular pressure on the underside of the head, body parts and ends on the bone to add some dimension.    I adhered the pooches to the card with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive and added some Copic green with my markers for the grass.  I like to use both the flicking and dotting technique to create grass.   I used G17, G21, G40, G45.   I used the Designer Adhesive to add the brown shadow of the bone to the card stock.   I popped up the colored layer of the bone using foam dots for dimension.  I read comments where our viewers would like to see some simple cards that can be mailed easily.   Although the bone has dimension,  This card will go through the mail but you will need to create a custom envelope.    

  • The final touch is to add heart shaped sequins to the card using the Dries Clear Adhesive.   The sequins were perfect because.... who doesn't love little pooches!    Woof!  
I hope you enjoy this collection as much as I do!

Heartfelt Creations Lavender Rose Tag - For My Friend

MAHALO from Hawaii!   I am having a wonderful vacation on the gorgeous island of Maui.  I will you could all be here with me!.    

Today is Heartfelt Creations' Wednesday Inspiration Day!  
Today we are showcasing the Blushing Rose Collection!   

I love tags and so I created a tag that can also be placed on a card base
 and used as a card if you prefer!   

Eyelet Oval DieHCD1-776

Other Products
120 lb. white card-stock, violet card-stock,  X-Press It Blending Card-Stock, paper trimmer, embossing/die machine, Misti Stamping Pad,  sponge dauber, grey pearls, oval decorative nesting die in two sizes, Copic Alcohol Ink Markers - (BV00, BV11, BV17, G21, G24 YG61, YG63), 70% alcohol for background blending, water brush,  purple Multiliner and nested oval die.

  • The Blushing Rose Stem Cling Stamp Set was stamped twice and the sentiment was stamped once  on X-Press It Blending Card Stock.  The image was colored using Copic Alcohol Ink Markers.  I used BV00, BV11, BV17, G21, G24, YG61 and YG63.   The sentiment background was marbleized  using G21 and BV00  with 70% alcohol.   I usually apply this with a brush or I put alcohol in a designated water brush and touch the tip to the various colors to create a marbleized look.  I applied some dots with a purple liner pen.

  • The rose Stems were cut using the Blushing Rose Stem Die.   The base of the tag was die cut with the Eyelet Oval Die.   I used petite nesting oval die for the remaining layers as shown in the picture.    The designer paper was selected from the Blushing Rose paper Collection.   The edges where lightly sponged with Memento LuLu Lavender Ink.  Designer Adhesive - Clear was applied to the edges of the sentiment layer.   Prills (I Cannot Tell A Lilac) were applied.

  • The layers were adhered using dimensional dots.    The foam dots in between each layer give the tag some great dimension and interest. The Blushing Rose Stem images were applied to the top and bottom of the tag.    The card was embellished with dark grey pearls.

  1. This tag also makes a great focal image that can be adhered to a card - It's not only fun but versatile!

Thank you so much for stamping by and don't forget to check out my team mates fabulous creations!
