Project Instructions:

Instructions
Start with a 10” X 7” card base scored at 5” for a side folding card. I have a video here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O52TBA0HuKs

Stamp the Tropical Hibiscus Cling Stamp Set  HCPC-3736  use Versamark embossing ink.  Add Ranger Platinum embossing powder and melt with a heat gun tool.  I used a Clorox stylus to color the leaves with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink (any sponge would work).  I use the side of the stylus to add the veining. Color the flowers with Picked Raspberry in the center and Scattered Straw on the tips. Shape the flowers as Emma Lou shows here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84Re1-gaq1o&t=394s   Once done add Prills to stain tips and flower centers.  used Go Man Go.

Cut the 2 larger Spellbinders Decorative Labels dies on white cardstick the color the edges with a brown ink. I used Vintage Photo Distress ink. cut a background layer from Designer paper (I used a teal from All Geared up) and glue to the card base. Glue on the burlap ribbon a little higher then center. Glue on the largest die the add more pattern paper the size and shape of the die interior (Trace the inside of the die on the pattern paper and cut). Adhere medium die frame with pop dots.

From the Under The Sea Paper Collection select a small scene that will fit inside your smallest frame. Enhance the scene by adding Wink Of Stella to the fish. Add glue the coral and sprinkle on red Flowersoft (or something with texture like Prills). I diet the turtle and shells from the Under The Sea Paper Collection. Cover the turtle and shells with Glossy Accents. Cut the smallest die from the Decorative Labels and add a sentiment.

Place the flowers in the lower left corner. Dries As Clear glue works great.

Intro Under The Sea - Heartfelt Creations

I am a Guest Designer at Cut@Home and I had the privilege to introduce the new Heartfelt Creations Under The Sea Collection and make a quick and easy A2 card. The collection is available for pre-order at Cut@Home so get your order in so you get your hands on the yummy collection as soon as possible!

https://www.ucutathome.com/index.php




The Under The Sea Paper Collection is absolutely stunning! The colors are tropical and vivid. You get 24 double sided pages, 2 of each design. Included are images you can cut with the matching dies, tags, sentiments and borders you can cut out. Be sure to watch the VIDEO for a close up look.



In the Under The Sea Collection there are 4 stamp sets with matching dies and also a sentiment stamp set. Just look at the whimsical detail in these stamps!
Emma Lou with Heartfelt Creations did a wonderful video on shaping the Hibisus HERE. I'll be using the flowers next week and I can't wait!




This is the card I made using the Under The Sea Paper Collection. I used the matching dies to cut out the turtle and shells. I also cut the shapes from white cardstock and glued to the back of the printed images. This makes them feel like embellishments. I cut 4 1/4" X 11" piece of cardstock and scored at 5 1/1" using Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool 

I cut 4" X 5 1/4" from the green paper with what I call bubbles, the tag and stamps and edged them all with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Before adding the embellishments I stamped one of the sentiments from Heartfelt Wishes stamp set on the tag. The tag was placed using pop dots. I added some green enamel dots.



The little turtle and shells were coated with glossy accents and added with pop dots. Glued on the 2 stamps and it was done.

 “It is time for a new blog hop featuring Graciellie Design’s Digital Stamps. Gracie’s stamps are so versatile and today I have the chance to share a card with you using one of her new sets called Thinking Of You. 





The torn edges were done first then I colored the background using Pan Pastels. The flower is pop dotted up and colored with Copics. Bits of green and gold foil were added using Heidi Swapp Reactive inc and the Minc. 

I added gold Prills in the flower center and the butterfly. I glued paper from Heartfelt Creations Mum Paper Pad onto a 5X7 piece of cardboard. I added gold mesh and white tulle behind the stamped image. The sentiment frame and leaf were cut from toner paper and foiled with a pretty gold to pink gradient foil.
