Stamping Bella Wedding Wishes

Wedding Card1

Today’s project is a wedding card featuring the Stamping Bella stamp Brett and Brenda Get Married.  I colored the image with Copic markers: E00, E02 (skin tones); YR21, YR31, E15 (Brenda’s hair); E35, E37 (Brett’s hair), R17, R37 (the flowers, heart, and Brenda’s shoes); YG63 (the leaves); B60 (shading on Brenda’s dress), C3, C5, C6, C7, C8 (Brett’s tux); C3 (ground shading); B000, B02 (background).

I cut the focal image out with deckle-edged scissors and highlighted the edges with Broken China Distress Ink.

I used a white gel pen to add faux stitched edges and a dotted background to a black piece of cardstock then attached the focal image with foam tape.  This piece was then adhered to the front of the card.

The stamps and dies used to create the rose are from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Collection.  I stamped them with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Color Box Lipstick Red Chalk Ink and Memento Bamboo Leaves ink. I added glue and a dusting of glitter to the flower petals for a little glimmer and sparkle.

This a 5″ x 7″ foldout card – I cut a piece of 6″ x 7″ black cardstock, scoring it at 1 inch on the 6-inch edge to create a tab, then used double-sided tape to attach this piece to the right side of the card.  Here is a look at the inside of the card with just the front flap open:

And below is the card fully opened displaying the three inside panels:

The heart borders on the left and right side panels were created with the Die’sire Rococo die.  The leaves were made with a die from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Collection, the doves are from the Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood Collection, and the bird cage is from the newest Heartfelt Creations release – the Lush Lilac Collection.  The circular die-cuts on the left and right side panels were made with a die from the Elizabeth Craft Designs #1254 Entwined Circles set.

The patterned papers used throughout the card are also from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Collection.

Finally, here is a look at the back when the card is closed:

Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilac Sympathy

Today’s project was a sympathy card I made recently for a co-worker featuring the paper and a couple of flowers from Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilac Collection:

Sympathy 2018

The flowers were stamped in Wilted Violet and colored with Faded Lilac Distress Inks.  I used the flower shaping mold from the Lush Lilac collection to make shaping the flowers quick and easy.  One of the stamens now available on the Heartfelt Creations site was glued inside of each flower for added interest.

I also added a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Heartfelt Sympathy set and some die-cut branches from Impression Obsession’s Foliage die set #DIE334-Y.

But the real star of this show is the paper from this collection.  Even without any additional embellishments, it would make a stunning statement on its own.

The inside of the card features more paper from the Lush Lilac Collection as well as a sentiment from the Sympathy Sentiments set by My Sentiment Exactly:

This card came together very quickly, but still shows the recipient they are being thought of during their time of sorrow.

I wish you all a happy and crafty week!

Silent Night, Holy Night

Silent Night

As we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the approaching holidays, we don’t always have the time for handmade cards that we would like.  Here is a great card that is easy to make and still looks like you spent a lot of time creating it.

This card features papers from two Heartfelt Creations collections, Snow Kissed and Festive Holly as well as a few holly sprigs die-cut from black card stock.  Inside there is another section of Festive Holly paper, the cardinals from the Holly Berry Jingle stamp set, more holly sprigs and a stamped sentiment.

Silent Night Inside

The cardinal image was colored with Copic Markers. R05, R17, R35, R37, R59, and Y17 for the cardinals; R17 and R39 for the berries; YG61 and YG63 for the leaves, and E37 for the branches.

Hope you enjoyed today’s project and will give it a try for yourself!

Christmas Cardinals, Bells, and Lanterns

What could be more reminiscent of home than the brilliant red of a cardinal against the crisp white background of newly fallen snow or the sight of a Christmas lantern lighting the way as the gentle sounds of Christmas bells fill the air?

At least, that’s what I was thinking as I created this next card . . .

Cardinals Bells Lantern

With papers, stamps, and dies from the Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly collection, I was able to create exactly what I was envisioning in no time at all!

I took one of the sheets from the Festive Holly paper pack and cut it down to 5.75″ x 5.75″ then adhered it to a 6″ x 6″ card base.  The lantern, cardinal, and holly were stamped on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers then cut out with the matching dies.

Copic Markers Used: Lampost – C3, C5, C7, C9. Flame – Y06, Y17, Y21, YR20. Candle – Y21. Leaves – YG61, YG63. Berries – R17, R39. Branch – E37. Cardinal – R35, R37, R39, Y17.

 

I used another piece of patterned paper inside the card as well as one of the larger tags:

Heartfelt Creations Christmas

With Heartfelt Creations, making Christmas Cards couldn’t be easier!  Their artwork is amazing and makes a beautiful card all on its own or you can jazz it up a bit with die-cuts, stamped and colored images and stamped sentiments.

The card below was made from their Snow Kissed paper collection–I just love these chickadees, don’t you?

Chickadee Xmas

All I added were a couple of die-cut pine boughs and berries on the front and a stamped sentiment on the tag inside, and in a matter of minutes, I had a great card completed!

Next up is a lovely card from this year’s Winter’s Eve collection–I just added a simple stamped greeting to the front:

Deer and Pines

Then on the inside, I used one of the more simple background papers so that I could highlight the two sentiments and various die-cut images:

Here’s another card from the Winter’s Eve collection that looks great but couldn’t have been easier to make:

 

And finally, here are two cards I made from the Festive Holly collection–once again, all I added were a couple of stamped and die-cut sentiments:

 

Give one or all of these paper collections a try for yourself and see just how fun and easy it can be to make great Christmas cards that your friends and family will treasure through the years.

Thanks for visiting and make it a crafty week everyone!

Heartfelt Creations Tropical Paradise Window Card

Tropical Paradise Window Card

This fun birthday card was made almost entirely from the Heartfelt Creations Tropical Paradise Paper Collection – everything from the main card image to the vine and even the palm tree tops were cut from this paper. I have to say, I do LOVE the colors and imagery contained in this paper collection!

The flowers were stamped with the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms set HCPC-3608 onto white cardstock and colored with Memento Lilac Posies & Danube Blue inks then cut out with the Arianna Blooms dies HCD1-748.

The leaves behind the flowers were cut from the Tropical Paradise paper with Elizabeth Craft Designs Pair of Leaves 1 #1314. The Celebrate die (#1286) is also from Elizabeth Craft Designs and was cut out of black cardstock.

The vine at the top of the card was cut with the Heartfelt Creations Delicate Border Dies HCD1-7118. This versatile die set is one that I have been using a lot lately!

The palm trees are from Lawn Fawn’s Palm Trees die set.  (This set also comes with a very cute crab die, by the way, that wasn’t used here.) As mentioned before, the tree tops were cut from the Tropical Paradise paper and the trunks and coconuts were cut from Stampin’ Up Kraft paper then colored with Copic Markers E23 and E18.

It is hard to tell from the photo, but I added dimension to the window frame by cutting four 1″ x 4″ pieces of black cardstock, scoring and folding them in half to form four 1/2″ x 4″ pieces, and then gluing two on each side.  I saw this great tip demonstrated on a blog a few months ago and was pleased at how well it worked!

As you can see below, I continued the Tropical Paradise theme on the envelope as well:

Tropical Paradise Envelope

The flamingo on the left was stamped with the Tropical Paradise stamp set  HCPC-3783 and cut out with the matching die HCD1-7137.

The tag on the right, like the main card image, was cut directly from the paper pad, making this card and envelope a surprisingly quick and easy project to put together.

Thanks for visiting – I hope you enjoyed today’s project.

 

 

 

Tropical Paradise Birthday

 

front-closed.jpg

Since I haven’t posted in awhile, I thought I would do another quick post today.

This is a birthday card I made using the Heartfelt Creations Tropical Paradise papers, stamps, and dies.  Love the colors and images of this set!

Although the flowers on the front were actually made with stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Collection, I did stamp them on paper from the Tropical Paradise collection and shaded with Memento inks.

Here is the back of the card when closed:

Back Closed

 

The card base is a Heartfelt Creations 5″ x 7″ white foldout card.   Below is the inside and outside with the card fully open:

Inside all flaps openoutside all flaps open

And here are some closeups of the individual panels:

 

The parrot and cockatoo were colored with Copic markers.  I didn’t like how the back of the cockatoo appeared from the backside, so I added a die-cut circle to represent the sun and colored both sides with Memento Cantaloupe ink and Kaleidacolor Desert Heat ink pad.  (And added a die-cut dragonfly so the back side wouldn’t look so plain!)

Other products used on the card include Memory Box dies: 99229 Garland Greenery, 99751 Little Dragonflies, and 99461 Wildflower Landscape; Sizzix 656515 Dragonfly; and Elizabeth Craft Designs dies: Leafy Branch 5, Pair of Leaves 1, and Celebrate.

Thanks for visiting – have a great rest of the holiday weekend everyone!
