Peekaboo Flowers

Hi!
Today I'm playing along with the Splitcoaststampers sketch.


For my card, I chose a base of SU Highland Heather, the designer paper is from the Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilac Collection.  The designer paper was distressed and the honeycomb die is from the Sweet as Honey Die set.  The sentiment strips are also from the paper collection.


The flowers were made with the Large and Small Sweet Peony stamps and dies, they were stamped on Art Foam paper with Stazon Vibrant Violet and sponged with Stazon Iris, the small flowers were stamped in Stazon Fuchsia Pink.  Bead stamens were added to the centers.


The leaves are from the Leafy Accents set, stamped in Library Green and sponged in Leaf Green and sculpted with the 3D Leafy Accents Sculpting Mold.


The inside was cut from the Lush Lilac Paper Collection.

Blessings,
DJ

Christmas Bouquet

Hi Friends!
I'd like to welcome you to my part of the Wednesday Inspiration happening now on the Heartfelt Creations Blog. Check out all of the beautiful projects on the blog!


Once again this week, I'm using the beautiful paper, boughs and pine cones from the Merry and Bright Collection.  The snowflake paper was matted in black on a 7.5 x 5.5 card base.  The window was cut out with the Botanic Window Die and the house was traced using the inside window die so that the window would overlap the house. 


The large poinsettias were created with the Sparkling Poinsettia stamps and dies, stamped in Fern Green, lightly sponged with Desert Sand and Fern Green.  The holly leaves were made with the Large Sparkling Poinsettia, they were stamped and sponged with Fern Green.  All of the images were cut out with corresponding dies and sculpted with the Floral Shaping Essentials, except for the small poinsettias which were sculpted with the 3D Poinsettia Shaping Mold and the larger poinsettias were sculped with the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold.  The small poinsettias were stamped in Lilac Posies, sponged in the same, Ribbit prills added to the centers and all of the poinsettias were covered in Frosting Powder.


The snowy branches from the Window Box Fillers set were stamped in black and colored with a brown colored pencil.


The pine cones and boughs from the Merry and Bright and Snow Pine Village sets were stamped in Rich Cocoa and  the boughs sponged in Fern Green and Library Green sponged around the outsides, the pine cones were sponged in Creamy Brown and Rich Cocoa sponged around the outsides.  A sentiment from the Merry and Bright Paper Collection was adhered among the poinsettias and glue was sponged on the boughs, sentiment, pine cones, and house and Frosting Powder was added.

Jingle All The Way

Hi Friends!
It's a wonderful summer day here in Washington State, and an even better day on the Heartfelt Creations Blog, as we celebrate a new release.  Hop on over and take a peak!  The new release is called the Merry and Bright Collection and is perfect for adding a little nostalgia to all of your Christmas projects.


Do you have a friend or relative that tells you every time they see you that they love your cards, that they still have the card you gave them six months ago on their mantel? Maybe you have someone you want to cheer up in the hospital or resthome, this is the perfect project for those special people. I also think this is one of my favorite cards I've created, it brought so much joy to create this sweet Christmas scene!

 The card was made with a full sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper folded in half.  The shadowbox was created with the 6x6 Foldout Cards - White.  The designer paper from the Merry & Bright Paper Collection with the pink house was used for the background of the shadowbox and pieces of the fence paper from the same pad were used for the card base.


Poinsettias were stamped with the Sparkling Poinsettia and Poinsettia & Holly Clusters in Lilac Posies, the centers were sponged with Fern Green, the holly leaves from the Large Sparkling Poinsettia and the Poinsettia & Holly Clusters sets were stamped in Fern Green and sponged in the same color.  All of the images were cut out with their matching dies, this saves so much time!  Purple stamens were added to the large poinsettias and green prills to the centers of the small ones, and of course, lots of glitter was added!


All of the images were stamped in Archival Black and colored with Copic markers.


Here's a side view of the shadowbox, you can see the layered scene inside.

Floral Frame

Happy Wednesday my friends!
It's that wonderful time of the week for inspiration on the Heartfelt Creations Blog, where the design team has put together a ton of beautiful projects for you to look at.


Having a new grandson has put me in the mood to display my photos, and what better way than with a floral frame?  I purchased this frame unfinished for a dollar at my local craft store, then painted it with the Porcelain chalk paint and finished it with a coat of clear wax mixed with a small bit of Antique wax.


You can see the antique color a little better in this shot from the top.
The corner pieces were created with the square die from the Butterfly Kisses Die and adhered to the frame.



The green/yellow, blue, and lavender flowers were made with the Small Sweet Peony cling stamps and dies, check out the sculpting video for the peony.  Rose leaves were created with the Leafy Accents Cling Stamp set and dies, using the 3D Leafy Accents Shaping Mold to sculpt.
The lavender wildflowers were created with the Backyard Blossoms stamps and dies and the curved leaves are from the Wildwood Florals set.  All of the flowers and leaves were sponged with ink to color.  All of the flowers were finished with Crystal Clear glitter.

Silent Night Ornament Card

Hi Friends!
It's Wednesday again and time for the some inspiration on the Heartfelt Creation Blog!


For my card this week, I'm sticking with the Christmas in July theme.  Using the O Holy Night Paper Collection, I created a background for my 5.5x7.5 inch card, as well as a center piece for the frame created with the Intricate Swirl Frame Die.  The scroll and pinecones are from the Silent Night Scroll stamp and die sets and the ornament is from the Noel Ornament Die and was cut out in gold foil paper and black cardstock to create a shadow and give the ornament more definition.



Poinsettias from the Poinsettia and Holly and the Sparkling Poinsettia Stamp and Die sets were sponged with ink, prills added to the smaller flowers and covered in lots of frosting powder.

Let The Heavens Rejoice

Playing along today with the Splitcoaststampers color challenge. The colors are:

berry burst
granny apple green
smoky slate


It's time to get a few Christmas cards made so I don't have a crunch in November, and today's colors are perfect!  I watercolored this retired Flourishes image from the Poinsettia & Pine stamp set with Stampin Up markers Berry Burst and Granny Apple Green, adding a little Old Olive to the pines.  The poinsettia was cut out with a MFT stitched circle die and the lacy black frame was made with the Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Kisses Decorative Die.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and was cut out with a MFT stitched oval die and framed with a Spellbinders die.
The background of Smoky Slate was dry embossed and lightly sponged with ink, as well as the strip of Berry Burst.

Blessings,
DJ
