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.
