Heartfelt Creations Beautiful Juliet Cards

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Today my cards feature the Beautiful Juliet stamp set and Sweet Juliet die set by Heartfelt Creations.  I love the stamp, the beautiful stem and greens with the saying “you are so beautiful to me” along the side.  The die set is also wonderful, and you can create so many different kinds of flowers with it.  I think that these were released around Valentines’ Day, but they are definitely appropriate for use throughout the entire year.  The first card below features both the stamp and the die sets; the second card features only the stamp set.

sweet juliet    heart juliet

The Beautiful Juliet stamp is very easy to use.  It isn’t too big, so you don’t have any issues with covering large areas, etc.  I usually use a green ink for this since it essentially represents the stem and leaves for a flower.  For the two samples, I used Memento Olive Grove ink.  (The samples on the video used Memento Bamboo Leaves ink.)  The important part is to make sure that your stamp block is big enough for the stamp so that you can get a good clear image.  I stamped the image on white cardstock cut 2.5” x 4.75”.

The next step is to make the “Sweet Juliet” flower for one of the cards.  I cut two pieces for the flower using the largest die in the set.  The paper I used was pink metallic vellum.  I found that for this particular flower, using something that is lighter in weight and that has a little flexibility works better than, for example, a heavier weight cardstock.  This is definitely a die that you want to use waxed paper with to make it easier to remove the cut piece.  As you remove the cut image from the die, pull gently and slowly to avoid tearing the paper.  Be sure to cut two of the largest flower pieces.  Once cut, gently curl each petal upward with your fingers to begin to shape the flower.  Assembly is super simple.  You just need a larger brad (one that won’t slip through the large holes already cut in the flower).  One by one, place each of the petals onto the brad (the brad goes from back to front through the hole), and then the brad goes through the center of the flower.  Pause after putting the first flower on the brad (loosely bend the “wings” of the brad to keep the petals from sliding off) and gently straighten out the petals.  When you’re happy with the result, re-open the brad and do the same thing with the second flower – this time trying to stagger the petals in between those of the first flower to fill it out a little.  When the second flower is on the brad, lightly bend the wings down and adjust the petals of both flowers so that they coordinate together.  When you’re satisfied with the result, tighten the brad.  Attach the Sweet Juliet flower to the card with a little Scor-Tape.  Please see the short video for some quick tips on using the Beautiful Juliet stamps and the Sweet Juliet die set.

The “heart” flower is just as easy to build.  I started with some of the May Arts Ribbon satin cut-out hearts.   These are sold by the yard, and attached side-by-side.  To use them I simply cut off the hearts that I needed, carefully trimming around the side curve.   I placed a small piece of Scor-Tape on the back of each heart.   Start by attaching one heart to the stamped image.  For the next heart, slightly overlap it with the first heart, making sure that the points meet.  Repeat this with the remaining three hearts (the May Arts hearts are approx. 7/8”) – you’ll need a total of 5 hearts for the large flower.  I like to add one more heart where the three leaves meet below.

I kept the cards themselves simple so that the attention would be focused on the stamp and die sets.  The background layer is cut 4.25” x 5.5” (A-2 sized).  The patterned paper is cut 3-7/8” x 5-1/8”.  I attached the patterned paper to the background layer with ¼” Scor-Tape.  I attached the stamped panel with the “heart” flower to the card also using Scor-Tape.  The final steps are to add the ribbon, and then attach the card front to a card base.  Super quick and easy!

Card Making: Heartfelt Creations Window Cards

Monday, March 17th, 2014

This week I made a couple of cards to show you how anyone with any level of experience can use Heartfelt Creations line of products, so I simply used paper and a stamp from the Raindrops on Roses line to make a couple of Heartfelt Creations Window Cards.

Here is a list of the products that I used that you can find right here at CutatHome.
Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses 12 x12 Paper Pack – SKU: HCDP1 240
Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses Window Rubber Stamp – SKU: HCPC 3587
Spellbinders A2 Valiant Honor Nestabilities – SKU: S5-217
Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Squares Large – SKU: S4-127
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Dusty Concord – SKU: TIM21445
Other items I used include Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, green and purple cardstock, pop dots, ribbon, glitter tape and some bling.

What I wanted to accomplish with this tutorial was to show how easy and versatile these products are to use, whether you are an experience crafter or just getting started as well as how you can make a quick simple card or a card that requires a little more time.
I started with the Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on roses collection and decided I wanted to use their window image, the image is available as a rubber stamp as well as a image that you can find in their 12″ x 12″ paper packs. The 12″ x 12″ paper packs are filled with images and tags that you can use for your card making as well as scrapbooks.

For the first card, the faster simpler card I cut a 12″ x 12″ inch piece of green cardstock in half then scored one of the halves to make a 6″ x 6″ square card. I also cut a piece of purple card stock 5″ x 5″, I selected the window image from the paper pack, to create a little more interest I cut the window out with the Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Squares, I used the largest die in the collection, it framed the image perfectly. I used my Big Shot to cut emboss it. I adhered the purple cardstock to the card base, used pop dots for the image to create some dimension added one of the tags from the Raindrops on Roses collection, a bow and some bling, here is the finished result.

For the second card I cut a 10″ x 7″ inch piece of the purple card stock, I scored it in half to make a 5″ x 7″ card base. I used the Spellbinders Valiant Honor dies on this card, these dies are now available for pre-order at the CutatHome site. I used the largest die in the set to cut a border for around my stamped image and I used one of the other dies in the set for my stamped sentiment. I used the Heartfelt Creations stamp set Window to stamp the image as well as the Happy Birthday sentiment. I colored my stamped image with alcohol markers, I am just learning to use them, but I was happy with the results. I used the Tim Holtz distress ink in Dusty Concord to ink the edges of my card as well as the edges of my stamped image and the sentiment. To assemble the card I cut and adhered my stamped image to the die cut, then I adhered the die cut to my card base, I used a adhesive glitter ribbon on the side and a green ribbon on top of that. I adhered my sentiment to my other die cut piece and then adhered that to the card. I added a bow and some bling. Here is that finished card.

I love that I can create a fast card when I need to, but can also spend a little more time when I have it, but either way get great results.

I hope that you have enjoyed my project this week, until next time, Thanks and Happy Scrappin.

Heartfelt Creations Water Color Card

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Here is another way to use Heartfelt Creations Majestic Morning stamp set. This project is simple yet detailed by the wonderful stamp Heartfelt Creations has put together for us.

 hrt-clg-3581

First I started with my background paper, selecting a gold polka-dot from Bo Bunny‘s Key Lime collection and cutting it to cover the the front of my card. Next using archive ink that is waterproof I stamped the Majestic Morning Accent on the water color paper. Once this is dry you want to moisten the watercolor sheet using a brush. Once the are to be colored is wet,  select 3-4 color sprays of choice. Place a drop of each color in random order. Now for the fun part, using your brush you want swirl all the colors.

*Tip: You can “soften” a color by adding more water to your brush.

While the top dries, proceed to your sentiment. Again, you want to stamp your sentiment with archival ink, then moisten the area of coloring. Follow the same steps from above.

Now all is left is to place the water colored sheet on your card and add a few embellishments of your choice.

Pretty and simple, right?! If you don’t have color sprays you can use water coloring pencils, you would just color lightly then brush.

Spellbinders 3D M-Bossabilities and Tim Holtz Distress Inks

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

Hi Everyone, I can hardly believe that we have already celebrated Valentine’s day, the next holiday coming up is St. Patrick’s day, so I made a couple of St. Patrick’s day cards to share with you using Spellbinders 3D M-Bossabiities and Tim Holtz Distress inks.

Here is a list of the supplies that I used that you can find at the Cut-at-Home on line store.

Card # 1

Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed 12 x 12 Paper Collection SKU: HCDPI 233
Spellbinders 3D M-Bossabilities, Oval Accent SKU: E3D-017
Echo Park St. Patricks Day Mini Theme 12 x 12 Collection SKU: SW3905
Silhouette-America Emerald Rhinestones 16ss SKU: SILH-RHINE-GRN16
Tim Holtz Distress inks, Peeled Paint SKU: TIM20233, Pine Needles SKU: TIM21476 and Iced Spruce SKU: TIM32878
I also used a few items from my stash for this card.

image

The first thing I did for both cards that I made was to emboss and ink the Spellbinder embossing folders that I used, the video below will walk you through the process.

After I finished the embossed backgrounds I was ready to make my cards. On the first card I decided to cut an oval from the Elegant Ovals die set, I used the second largest Oval for my card. I used my Big Shot to cut and emboss the oval, I used my tape runner and glued it to the center of the embossed oval, I wanted to use a shamrock in the middle of the card but I wanted some bling so I used my Silhouette Cameo to design a shamrock trimmed in rhinestones. I used a rhinestone setter to adhere the gems, the Silhouette gems are heat set gems and can be used with any setter. I also used a strip of coordinating paper and a buckle to dress the card up a little more. I also added a couple of stickers from thee sticker sheet that was included with the Mini thee paper kit. The card base is 5 X 7 which is the size of the embossing folder.
image
I had so much fun making the first card I decided to make another one! Here is a list of thee supplies for the second card.
Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed 12 x 12 Paper Collection SKU: HCDPI 233
Tim Holtz Distress inks in Peeled Paint SKU: TIM20233 and Evergreen Bough SKU: TIM32854
Spellbinders 3D M-Bossebilities Celtic Knot SKU: E3D-012
I also used Gold ink, washi tape and gems.
image

The first thing I did on the second card was the background as demonstrated in the video. I used some gold ink on this card as well since It was being made for a 50th anniversary.
image
I adhered my embossed piece to a 5 x 7 card base then sketched and cut a celtic knot and 4 shamrocks for the corners on my Silhouette Cameo. I also cut the heart and used the fill and print option that I shared with you in a previous video. For a finishing touch I added washi tape and gems.
image
Both of these cards were fun to make, the possibilities are endless with this technique so give it a try and have some fun!
Till next week, Thanks and Happy Scrappin
