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.

For my project today, I created a 81/2 x 51/2 card.  For the background, I used the Backyard Blossoms Paper Collection, for the side panels, I cut out two of the Sweetheart Border Die.  The Ornate Pocket and Border Die was used for the bottom, it was sponged with glue and covered with glitter.  


The peonies were created with the Large and Small Sweet Peony stamps and dies. For more tips on creating with the Sweet Peony collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/L9_MLkvpGPQ.  For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/FSdPL7nXvQE.  To see how to shape the peony, watch the video at https://youtu.be/L9_MLkvpGPQ.  The wildflowers were stamped and sponged with Backyard Blossoms, Blossoming Coneflower, Garden’s Edge, Rain Boots & Blossoms (leaves), and Wildwood Florals (leaves) Cling Stamps and cut out with corresponding dies.


Lots of Crystal Clear Glitter was added to all of the flowers!

The sentiment is from the same paper collection and was added to the Window Box Elements Die with foam tape.

My Everything

Happy Wednesday to you!
It's inspiration day over on the Heartfelt Creations Blog and I'm participating with a card made with the Heartfelt Creations Sweet Peony Collection, please come join us on the blog for more fun projects.


The background and sentiment were created with papers from the Sweet Peony Paper Collection and the top flourished piece was created with distress ink and Distress Grit Paste with a stencil.  The bottom of the stenciled piece was cut with the Fleur Border Basics and a lace piece added with the same die set.


The Eyelet Heart Die was used to create both layers of the heart, with paper from the same paper collection used for the center.


The large flowers were stamped with the Large Sweet Peony, sponged with Fern Green, Lilac Posies, and Plum and sculpted with the 3D Floral Shaping Mold and cut out with corresponding dies. For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/FSdPL7nXvQE.  Stamens were cut out with the Flowering Dogwood Die from pale green card stock.  The flowers were sponged with glue and covered in glitter.


The leaves were made with the Classic Rose Vines and the small flowers were made with the Backyard Blossoms Cling Stamp and die sets.

Foam Peonies

Howdy to all my crafty friends!



Before I show you some Wednesday inspiration, I have to show off my first grandson, James.  He arrived last week and I can't tell you  how much joy he's already brought to my world!

Now, on to some gorgeous inspiration.  If you get a chance, pop on over to the Heartfelt Creations Blog to find tons of beautiful new projects.


For my card today, I started with paper from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia Paper Collection.  I used it for the background and the sweet framed rectangle piece, both are matted with black card stock.  The corner dies were created with the leftover piece from the Regal Border & Pockets Die that you can see on the right.


I love playing around with the new Art Foam Paper and created all of my flowers with the Large and Small Sweet Peony Cling Stamp and Die sets.  Several colors of Bead Stamens were added to the centers, as well as lots of glitter. 

To see how to shape the peony, watch the video at https://youtu.be/L9_MLkvpGPQ.
