Card Size:  5" x 6"
So, I didn't want to have to tell you this, but...Christmas is only 2 months away!!! So I thought I better start working on some Christmas cards.  I used the Festive Holly Paper Collection and layered some elements to make a card.

I used the stamps and dies from Window Frame and also Window Box Elements and Border Essentials.

I cut out the sled from red cardstock and grey cardstock, I then fussy cut the red slats and glued them to the grey sled.

I coloured the candle with Prismacolour Pencils and added it to the inside of the window.  The cardinal is cut from the patterned paper...the collection is full of cardinals!  I added Liquid Applique to the window ledges and sled to make it look snowy.

The cardstock base needed something, so I embossed a border from the Border Essentials set to give it some texture.

The sentiment is part of the paper collection, I cut it out and matted it.  I think I will go back and add some glitter to make it more festive.

Heartfelt Creations September Alumni Blog Hop

Hello and welcome here!  Okay, where did September go?  I almost forgot about the Heartfelt Creations Alumni blog hop, the end of the month snuck up on me.  If you've come from Alissa's Blog you're on the right track.  If not, you can find the Blog List at the bottom of my post.



Leave a  comment on each blog for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate.
Contest closes Monday October 2nd 11:59 pm EST. The winner will be announced Oct. 4th on the HC Blog and Facebook page. Good luck and have fun!

 Box Size:  2.75" x 6.5"  (~1.25" high)
I found this box tutorial by Tamra Kilgore-Merill on Authentique Paper's Facebook page HERE. I have recently joined Country Craft Creations Facebook page and let me tell you, it is FULL of great tutorials.

The box could be a fancy gift card holder, or like I am using it here, a little mini album/treasure box.

Keep scrolling to find the hidden treasures of this box!
I used the Classic Rose stamp and dies to create the flowers.  

 

Here's what the closed box looks like from the side.

I used magnets to keep the flap closed (you could also wrap ribbon around to tie it closed if you don't want to use magnets.)

My dad passed away just over a year ago and I wanted a spot to keep the last photos I had taken of  him with the kids.

I used the ornamental die from the Window Box Elements Die set.

 The box has a 'wrapper' around it.

The inside box is revealed.  If you're using it as a card, instead of photos you could have quotes.

I used 2 different paper collections, Flowering Dogwood and Classic Rose.

I used magnets to hold the box closed, but again, there is enough room to use ribbon if you wanted to tie it closed.  I use one of the dies from Arianna Lace to look like a clasp holding it closed.

Here's the box!  It holds quite a bit.  I still want to add some tags to write our memories of him down, but I ran out of time.

Recipe:  Heartfelt Creations PP-HCDP1-275 Flowering Dogwood & HCDP1-270 Classic Rose, HCD1-7150 Window Box Elements Die, HCPC-3752 Classic Rose Cling Stamp, HCD1-7110 Classic Rose Die, HCD1-783 Border Essentials Die, HCD1-747 Arianna Lace Die, Papericious-Crystal Clear, Bazzill CS-purple & black, CTMH CS-White Daisy, Prima-Say It In Crystals, Prills-Minnie Pearls & Lemon Chiffon, My Favorite Things Inside/Out Stitched Oval Die, Magnets, CTMH Ink-Whisper, New England Ivy & Vineyard Berry, Versafine Ink-Onyx Black, Lace Ribbon, Foam.

Heartfelt Creations Alumni August Blog Hop

Hello and welcome here.  It's time for another Heartfelt Creations Alumni blog hop!!  If you've come from Gloria's Blog you're on the right track.  If not, you can find the Blog List at the bottom of my post.

Leave a  comment on each blog for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate.
Contest closes Monday August 28th midnight EST.
The winner will be announced Aug. 30th on the HC Blog and Facebook page.
Good luck and have fun!


Today I have an altered item to share with you.
I found this wooden 'C' at Winners.  My friend who is a nurse just finished a course to become qualified to work in the dialysis unit...it was fraught with exams and a practicum. But she did it!!!! YAY!!!  So I wanted to get her a little something in celebration and of course it needed to be dressed up a bit.  What better way than with some Heartfelt Creations flowers!!

I used the Classic Rose stamp and die.  I clear embossed the flowers onto white cardstock.  I then added some coral ink and used my Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape the roses.

I wanted the leaves to be soft so I stamped them onto white cardstock and then distressed the edges with the same ink.

For the big rose I used all the same size flower.  I wanted a nice tight rose and I found the best way to achieve this was to use the same size flower.  As I got closer to the center I cut the flower in half so that is was easier to shape around the bud in the middle.

I added some Wink of Stella to the flower petals for just a hint of sparkle.  I also added Nuvo Crystal Clear Drops onto the leaves to simulate dew or rain drops.



I tucked in some springs from the Arianna Lace die set.

I like adding little details to my projects like this motif from the Arianna Lace die set.

Recipe:  HCPC-3752 Classic Rose Stamp, HCD1-7110 Classic Rose Die, HCD1-747 Arianna Lace Die, HCST1-401 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Smoothie & Sea Glass, Versamark Ink, Clear Embossing Powder, Wink of Stella-Clear, Stickles-Crystal Ice, Rhinestones, Nuvo Crystal Drops-Clear, Pearls, Organza Ribbon, Wooden Letter.

Little did my friend know that when I was at her house for some crafting time, I was making these flower for HER!!
