Deck the Halls!


A quick post from me today!

The hardest and longest part of making this card was choosing my papers! lol!
Although it was pretty easy as they all come from the Winter's Eve paper pad
and are deigned to go together!!!!!

I am loving playing with pinks and blues for Christmas!

I just wanted to thank you all for your support after my FB live yesterday!
Wow just shows anything can happen!
I am pleased to say my daughter is ok and alls well.
Thank you for all your love and understanding, it wasn't quite how I planned!

EZ Christmas cards & Flowers!



Christmas is getting closer! Wow it's not far now!
Have you got all your cards made? Shh I haven't but I am working on them!
Join me  LIVE over on the Heartfelt Creations Facebook page HERE
as I show you some quick and EZ ideas for your cards that you can make in 30 mins or less!
Even faster if you make all your flowers first!


The card fronts from the Paper Pad collections make
it so easy to make these quick cards!


Here is a quick tutorial showing you how I made my flowers 
with the new Poinsttia Flower shaping mold. 
WOW I love this tool! 
 Have fun! 


Step 1: Stamp the Poinsettia & Holly Cluster stamps. 
TOP TIP: Stamp them all on one sheet so they can be die cut in one pass. 
A great time saver! Plus if you have a large arcrylic block
you can stamp both the flowers at once and then th leaves at once too!


Step 2: Die cut the flowers and leaves using the Poinsettia & Holly Cluster Die.
TOP TIP: Run them all through at once as they are stamped on one sheet!
Place them into the mold, lightly spritz and then run through your die cutting machine.



Step 3: Tip the all of flowers and leaves out of the mold.


And then press the centres down with a flower shaping tool and glue two flowers
 together and place ontop of a holly leaf. 


TOP TIP: Add a dab of glue to the holly centre, place a flower on andadd another dab of glue to
the flower cenrte and then place the top flower on nd then press down in the centre. Its a time saver!


Step 4: Adhere prills to the flower centres.
You could also use stamens, if so use the piercing mat and tool from the 
Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to make a hole and add your stamen of choice.


Step 5: Using a sponge dab glue on the edges of the petals and cover with
Frosting Powder for a super effect!


WOW I made this many flowers in just two hours!
Such an EZ way to make flowers ready for your Christmas projects!

Here is what I used on these projects:

Winter Wonderland


I took myself in a toally different direction with this card
than where I first started from! As it developed I decided 
who was going to recieve this card and it just took off!
Lol there is lots of Crystal Clear powder on this it sure does sparkle!

Sometimes making a project that is outside of your comfort zone is
just what the crafty fairy ordered as it stretched your imagination!
Have lots of crafty fun!

I used the Winters Eve Paper pad alongside the Woodsy Wonderland and 
Snow Kissed collections on this shadowbox card!

Shadowbox card


I thought I would use up the spare poinsettias I had left on my desk!
Which in turn led to me get out the Sparkling Poinsettia papers........
Yes I fell in love all over again! lol How could I have left these papers in the box! lol!

I have used a shadowbox card on the front of a 6" x 6" card.
They give great dimension to your projects!

Have lots of crafty fun!

Merry Christmas


I've been playing with black as a backdrop to my cards!
I was inspired by my friend and teamie Gloria Stengel's projects and this is
what I came up with using the Winter's Eve collection.
I love how the black makes the pink pop!

I'm not sure my tree will look as beautiful as this one in 
the image, but we will have fun putting it up later today!
 Have a fabulous day everyone!
Happy crafting

Christmas Lantern Tutorial


I was LIVE on Heartfelt Creations today with EZ alternative ways
to use the Gift of Love Box Die! Here is one of them
and a step by step tutorial for you. Watch me LIVE HERE


Also see how I make these beautiful poinsettia flowers!

As soon as I saw this die I just knew I had to make a Christmas Lantern!
Here I show you how to make it with 4 sides, but check out my live
as I have a larger one that I made as well!

Directions:


Step 1: Using black card die cut four of the box sides.


Step 2: Die cut the centre piece on all four sides and then fold along all
of the score lines and adhere the sides together. 
TIP: Glue the square part first and then the top pieces, it goes together easily.


Step 3: Adhere the base together.


Step 4: Using 3D silver stamp paint apply to the box to create
a metallic look. Apply from the left to right along each section using 
a motion sweeping across the box. Cut a strip of card 7 1/2" x 3/4" and
use the stamp paint on this also. This is the handle.
Using brads and a hole punch attach the handle to the box.


Step 5: Using Dries White glue and Frosting Powder create a snowy effect
over the box and handle and leave to dry.


Step 6: Decorate with the Sparkling Poinsettia flowers and add
a battery candle inside.

Happy Crafting everyone! 

To make the lantern I used the following:

Create fun effects on your projects by placing the diecut back inside the cut piece of card!

Snowflake Christmas Decoration


A very quick and EZ Christmas decoration!
It would be fun to make these with the little ones!

To make this I cut 4 of the Snow Kissed Flakes and Tag Die
out of white card. Glue two together and then the other two together
so that you now have two snowflakes. Adhere Crystal Clear Powder
over the front of the snowflakes.

Adhere white ribbon to the back of one of the snowflakes and
then adhere the other snowflake over it so you now have your decoration.

To make the flowers see the tutorial HERE.
Adhere the flowers and sentiment to the front of the decoration.
On the back you could add a photo, the date or anything else!

Have lots of crafty fun!

Snowflake Shaker Card


As promised during my Facebook Live here is the tutorial
on hoe to make this fun snowflake shaker card!
If you missed the live you can watch it HERE.

I had such fun making different things with the Snow Kissed Flakes and Tag die set!
I will share some of the projects with you over the next few days!


So let's get started with this shaker card!


Step 1: Fold a piece of card so you have a 5" x 5" tent fold card and
using the outer snowflake die cut to make a card.
Make sure you cut inside the top of the flake for a folded edge.


Step 2: Fold the front of the card in half to make the base of an easel card.
Die cut a single piece using the outer die also.


Step 3: Adhere the die cut to the folded piece of the easel card.
Die cut another from the Winter's Eve paper pad and adhere to the bottom
of the card. Also die cut a snowflake in white card using the inner die and adhere
to the base also.


Step 4: To make the front of the shaker card die cut the following:
1 x Snowflake in paper from the paper pad.
1 x Outer die using clear card.
1 x Frame using both dies together.


Step 5: Adhere the frame onto the acetate using dries clear glue
and a fine metal tip. Make sure not to get glue over the acetate.


Step 6: Snip the snowflake apart and adhere into the frame on your acetate.


Step 7: Adhere 3D foam pads around the edge of the front of the shaker. Make
it a double layer to give extra depth for your bits to shake well.
Cut the outer die using the papers for the paper pad so you have a scene
at the back of your shaker.


Step 8: Adhere the back to the acetate leaving a small section open
and add your bits to shake! I used prills and sequins in mine.
Adhere this to the easel card.


Step 9: Adhere flowers and a sentiment and you card is ready!
Have fun making some of these!

To make the flowers see this tutorial HERE
