Nativity Stain Glass Luminary

Hello!
It's time for the Wednesday Inspiration at the Heartfelt Creations Blog and a new release celebrating Christmas in July!  Be sure and stop by the HFC blog to check out all of the new goodies!




For my project this week, I made a luminary, a candle holder to show off the sweet images from the new O Holy Night Collection.  For directions on making the luminary, I found this tutorial on the Splitcoaststampers site.  I changed the tutorial a tad to add rectangle panels made with the two smallest Eyelet Rectangle & Basics dies to create a frame for each of the three sides.  Three vellum panels slightly larger than the rectangle openings were cut out and the nativity, shepherds, and Bethlehem images were heat embossed in black, colored with markers and blended with a Tombow blending marker.  The completed vellum panels were glued inside the luminary.


The angel was heat embossed on water color paper and colored with the markers.


Poinsettias from the Large Sparkling Poinsettia and Sparkling Poinsettia sets were stamped in MFT Wild Cherry.  Tiny poinsettias from the Poinsettia & Holly Clusters also were stamped in Wild Cherry, all were cut out with corresponding dies.  The stamens were sponged with Buttercup and yellow prills were added to the centers of the tiny poinsettias.


A large poinsettia was added to the top of the box with holly stamped in black and colored with markers and a dove blender.


Two pine cones from the Silent Night Scroll set were stamped in Rich Cocoa and colored with markers and a tiny poinsettia added on top.



Add a battery operated tealight.

You Are Bee-utiful

Happy 4th of July!  Independence day here in the US, a day for picnics, fireworks, warm weather and a day to appreciate our freedom!  It's also a very special day because it's inspiration day at the Heartfelt Creations Blog, if you get a chance, come over and visit.

For my card this week, I used the Sweet as Honey Paper collection.  The finished card is 5 x 7 and I used the new Intricate Swirl Frames Die to frame my floral queen bee scene.


The bee hive from the Sweet as Honey set was stamped, sponged with ink and cut out with corresponding dies.  The sweet bee maiden from the Honey Bee Maiden Cling stamp set was stamped on water color paper and colored with Zig markers.
The flowers were created using the Botanical Rose Cling Stamp set and corresponding dies, sponged with Bamboo Leaves and Buttercup ink and sculpted with the 3D Floral Basics Sculpting Mold.  For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/FSdPL7nXvQE.  The stamens were made with the Sunrise Lily Die, each arm of the stamen was cut in half lenghtwise, glue was added to the tips and they were dipped in Ribbit prills.



The sentiment is from the same paper pad and is framed in bees from the Sweet as Honey stamp and die sets.

Peony Easel Calendar

Happy Release Day!
Yes, not only is it Inspiration Wednesday, but also a very special release day on the Heartfelt Creations Blog!  Today is the release day of the Leafy Accents Collection, complete with a wonderful Shaping Mold!


I made my mom one of these calendars for Mother's Day and thought it would be fun to create another to show off the new Leafy Accents Cling Stamps, Dies, and Shaping Mold.


For details on creating the easel, check out this Splitcoaststampers tutorial.  There are free printable calendars online, if you need a different year.


The flowers were made with the Large and Small Sweet Peony, the large were stamped and sponged in Archival Tea Rose and the small in Lulu Lavender, and then cut out with the corresponding dies.  Bead stamens and glitter were added to all of the flowers.
To see how to shape the peony, watch the video at https://youtu.be/L9_MLkvpGPQ.



The Leafy Accents were stamped and sponged in Bamboo Leaves and sculpted with the Leafy Accents Shaping Mold. 


A sentiment from the Sweet Peony Paper Collection was distressed and added with foam tape.

Peony Gift Box

Hi Friends!
It's time once again for my favorite time of the week, inspiration Wednesday at the Heartfelt Creations Blog, feel free to come visit and be truly inspired!


For my project this week, I created a gift box covered in designer paper from the Sweet Peony Paper Collection.  I used a pre-made chipboard box and added Mod Podge over the paper to give it more strength.


The peony and bud were made with the Large Sweet Peony Stamps and Dies.  To see how to shape the peony, watch the video at https://youtu.be/L9_MLkvpGPQ.  Add bead stamens to the center of the large peony.  The wildflowers were made with the Backyard Blossoms stamps and dies, the leaf from the Classic Leaf stamps and dies, and the banner was made with the Banners of Love stamps and dies. 


Finish flowers with lots of glitter.

Bumble Bee Bouquet

Happy Wednesday!
It's that day of the week where we celebrate inspiration and release day on the Heartfelt Creation Blog! Please come on over and visit.


I started my card with the beautiful new designer paper from the Heartfelt Creations Sweet as Honey Paper Collection.  I added a bouquet of flowers made with the Delightful Daisy, Backyard Blossoms, Lush Lilac, Wildwood Florals (leaves), Small Sweet Peony (leaves) stamps and dies and added stamens, prills, and glitter.


The Regal Borders and Pockets Die was used on both sides of the main panel and the center oval was raised with foam tape with a circle doily from the Butterfly Kisses Decorative Die was added behind.  Bees from the Sweet as Honey set were stamped, sponged and cut out with the corresponding dies.  Glitter glue was added to the wings for sparkle and they wer placed in the bouquet and around the sentiment, which is also from the paper collection.


Finally, a seam binding bow was added to tie the bouquet together.
