Heartfelt Creations

I have been playing with Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies. I love rubber stamps. I got the flower shaping kit and the rolling tool is wonderful, much deeper than a quilling tool. I have been playing with some multi-media lately and love it!  I up wrote instructions and supplies. Since each one is a bit long I will post separately.

Faith Card. This was fun. I made a bunch of flowers, cut diecuts and then played:-)

Products Used:
Spellbinders Leaves die
Arianna Blooms Die  HCD1-748
Classic Leaf Die   HCD1-736
Enchanted Mum Paper Collection HCDP1-258
Dries As Clear adhesive
Flower Shaping Essentials   HCST2-406

Project Instructions:
Other products:
Pearls, Gauze, stamens, Pebeo gold paint, lace, Concord, Picked Raspberry, Vintage Photo Distress ink, Gina K Jelly Bean Green ink, Passionate Pink Gina K cardstock, Zutter Distrezz-It-All electric distressing tool, Marianne Designs Fancy Edge with Lattice die, HOTP Butterfly die, Silhouette Cameo and heavy weight vellum

Card measures 5 1/4" x 7 1/4". The pink base is Gina K Passionate Pink heavy weight cardstock which is distressed (using Distrezz-It-All) and Vintage Photo Distress Ink sponged on the edges. To make the card, cut a second piece of the Passionate Pink 5 1/4" x 7 1/4" and score 1/2” on the top and adhere to the top of the front back. Glue only the top 1/2” above the scoreline. Cut 4 3/4” X 6 3/4” piece of green paper from the Enchanted Mum Paper Collection, distress the edges and glue on top of the card base. Cut 4 1/2” X 6 1/2” piece from the purple sheet from the Enchanted Mum Paper Collection. Die cut the top edge of the purple paper using a border die. A Marianne lattice border die was used here. Distress the other 3 sides and sponge with Vintage Photo Distress ink. Before adhering the purple layer, place and glue the piece of lace to show through the die cut.

Diecut a lattice overlay (here it was cut on a Silhouette Cameo) and adhere on top of the purple layer in the center. Place a small piece of gauze (about 4”X4”) scrunched a bit and glued down under the butterfly and sentiment area.

 Fussy cut the sentiment from the Enchanted Mum Paper Collection, sponge Vintage Photo Distress ink on the edges and then using your finger add a bit of Pebeo gold or Inka Gold to the edges, add pearls and set aside. Diecut flowers, leaves (from white cardstock and vellum), and the butterfly. For this card a large and small butterfly die from Hot Off The Press was used and layered together.

Shape the flowers by spritzing front and back with water then scrunching. Open up the still wet flower, fold in half then in thirds. Smudge Festive Berry Distress ink on your craft mat and spritz with water to get a light pink wash. Roll the edge of the folded petals top edge in the ink wash. Alternatively you can use a spray mister.

Shape the petals some with the Flower Shaping Essentials and let dry. Add any addition shaping such as rolling the dry petals randomly and assemble the flowers. Add a pearl to the center of each flower. I adhere using the Dries As Clear adhesive. Use your finger to rub some gold paint on the flower petal tips, vellum leaf edges and the edge of the larger layer of the butterfly.

Do a dry placement of sentiment, leaves and flowers. When you like it glue down the bottom elements. Here that is the various leaves. Place vellum leaves on the bottom and the white ones slightly offset over them. Pop dot the sentiment to sit above your leaves, add stamens, pearls etc. to embellish.
