Introducing the new Camellia Carnation collection by heartfelt Creations



Hi, to start the new collection off, today I have a tend fold card without a sentiment....
this can be a good thing....a card to save in the stash for a rainy day....you know, the card you need in a hurry and you don't have the time to make right now....lol...

Introducing the Camellia Carnation collection
Beautifully ruffled in delicate layers and commonly gifted to express love, fascination, and distinction, the carnation flower is certainly recognizable and a floral garden and arrangement favorite. Thought to be one of the oldest cultivated flowers in the world and is known to be a wonderful choice for special occasions such as, weddings or just because occasions. With an outstanding reputation as a cut flower, and an amazing array of colors and sizes, it is no wonder that the carnation flower remains so popular today! Heartfelt Creations invites you to celebrate the beauty and gentle humbleness of the carnation with the Camelia Carnation Collection! With a color palette of fiery reds, pastel pinks, sunset orange tones, and lush hues of greens, the gorgeous paper collection brings with it a bold but feminine feel. Filled with attractive carnations clusters, exquisite flower gardens, and decorative lace like details, this pretty paper collection is sure to become a perennial favorite. Two cling stamp sets and coordinating dies come together to create enamoring and realistic carnation blossoms with delicately illustrated details and varying sized petals ideal for assembling full sized carnation flowers to charming mini versions, while a third cling stamp set lends itself perfectly to layering and creating dimensional carnation clusters. So join with us as we celebrate and give recognition to the traditional, but somewhat overlooked and under praised carnation flower!


This card sure was fun to make! Of course using the new 'Floral basic shaping mold' was a bonus....you got to get them! They save so, so much time...and what about the hands!....Yes thats right.....no more pain!
Now sit back, view and enjoy the ride...

Snow Globe Crafters Companion love today because...

...it's snowing.



Code red yesterday...which means...stay at home!
It's safer...so what better than a snow globe to set the mood.


I love the cut out snow fakes....pop them out and you have auto 3d.
A few blue crystal bling stones for the centres....beautiful!


A triple organza bow at the foot with more bling....wow.


Glitter behind the pop out snow flake round...makes any glitter girl happy.


Embossing folder inked with tumbled glass ink, sets the tone. Got to add that stickle glitter to the high lights of the embossing.
The dark blue matting pops the white.
I hope you have been inspired to try this out. Well worth the effort on these snowy chilly days.
Inky hugs, till next time.

Instructions:
The finished size of this card is 6.102in in x 5.31 in (15.5 cm x 13. 5 cm)
Taking the white card-stock, make a tent fold card base 5.31 in x 5.31 in (13.5 cm x 13. 5 cm) Take the pink card-stock and make the matting a little smaller than the card base. Adhere the matting to the base with 3d foam dots. For the card front, take the pink card-stock and cut to 3.858in x 4.803in (9.8 cm x12.2 cm) Find the paper in the collection with the verse beginning with “There is strength for every burden,” Trim this so it fits the pink card-stock. Ink the edges with the Forest Moss and Victorian Velvet distress inks and daubers. Adhere together using double sided tape. Taking the dark pink and pink card-stock and the lace border die from the Sweet Borders die set, die cut this 2x each colour.  Adhere the two colours back to back. Trim to fit a border at both sides of the card front. Adhere in place; adhere also along the card front bottom edge. Adhere this to the card front with 3d foam dots so it peeks over the top of the card base 0.787in (2cm) For the banner, find the stamp in the Banners of Love stamp and matching die collection. Stamp the image using the gold embossing powder onto the white card-stock. Die cut 4x extra from the white card-stock, adhere all the layers together to form a chipboard banner. Adhere the banner in place by using the 3d foam dots.


To make the flowers:
To see how to shape the petunia, watch the video at https://youtu.be/KOy_qNB9OAk.
 For more tips on creating with the foam paper & stamp; stamens, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/Oma6ctVmUD0

 The flowers are made from the art foam paper and green stamens. They are coloured using the pink and the leaves the green Pan-Pastels. Make the leaves using the same method as the flowers. Arrange and adhere in place around the card front corner and the banner, using the hot glue gun. To make the screw swirls, take the dark pink card-stock and cut small strips of card-stock .039in (1mm). Wrap the card-stock strips around the sate stick. This will form a screw. Trim the screw to the length wanted. Adhere in place using the hot glue gun, pull to stretch the screw out so you will get a swirl screw effect. Add more to the flower clusters as fillers. This card has 10.


Don't you love the foam flowers!?!....I can't get enough of them!
Can't wait till you can see next weeks new release...a door is going to open to a whole new world for you...lol
Till then happy scrappy hugs

...a different kinda love from Crafters Companion this time...

hi...this sure is something different for me! But I like it!


This card is featuring the Crafters Companion new 'Flutterby' Collection
A truly beautiful collection with dies, embossing folders, luxury papers and luxury card-stock.


Above a details look at this fantastic butterfly!
Here I have coloured two and layered to get a in flight 3d look.
....and yes....the stamp has a matching die! We all know how I love the stamp and die sets that match.
There is another set that complements this one...just haven't got it yet...but it's on the must have list!
The under butterfly is cut in two at the body. Cut away the body and adhere off center with 3d foam dots to keep the wing hight.
You can go crazy colouring this large butterfly! Great for practising and using 'ALL' the pencil colours.


The sentiments have been taken from the Crafters Companion Holly Hobbie 
'Life's Treasures' stamp set.
Thats another stamp collection I had to invest in...sorry to say no dies though. But because they are so adorable I had to have them.....had to have them all! So you will see them posted at some stage.
pssst....I've been colouring them today....I made time for it....lol.
A tip about the stamping on this beautiful matte foiled card stock....you have to use the Staz-On ink. If you don't, it won't show up for the party.


A close up of the die cutting of the cute little butterfly's. Save the butterfly's to use as confetti or adding to cards. The die has been used twice on this card front at different heights to give a staggered look. See how this luxury card-stock shows through the die cuts....loving this! It's aptly called 'Arrangement of Butterflies'
Another tip for this die: Use it to make your own stencils
Leaving you with that note, sending happy scrappy love,
Sussipoppins

Other: Hot glue gun, Versa-mark, Fussy Cutting Scissors, Misti stamping tool.

Instructions:
Take the 3 ring journal folder, the modeling paste, spatula and the crafters work shop template to first apply the letter writing to the front cover and spine of the journal folder. Put aside to dry. Returning back to the journal front cover. When the cover modeling paste is dry, spray with the Lindy’s stamp gang sprays till you get the color you want. Misting with water if needed. Do this also to the back cover of the journal. Dry the sprays with the heat it tool or you can leave it to air dry.
Take the eyelet die and die cut the frame from a piece of white cardstock. Trim the inside part away from the lace out side edge. Put the inside part aside for later. Bring the Wild honey and Fired brick ink onto the lace frame edge. Taking the scalloped oval die from the small oval die set cut this x 6. Take the Words of Comfort stamp set and find the sentiment with ‘Today I Choose’ on it. Stamp this on one of the ovals with the aid of the misti-stamping tool. Adhere all the layers together with wet glue so you can slide it to match the scalloped edge.
Taking the banner die from the ‘Banners Of Love’ die set and the stamp set ‘Todays Quotes’ and find the stamp with ‘Todays Accomplishments’ Use the two in combination to make the banner. Cut the banner x 3 extra from the card-stock, adhere all together to make a chipboard banner. This is to be sprayed with the gold Lindy’s stamp gang spray later when the spraying is done to the journal cover.
Taking the white card stock and design paper scraps from the Young At Heart paper collection use the classic rose stamp and die set to make the rose petals and leaf swirls. Use the distress inks to bring color to the leaves, rose petal tips and centers. Spray the petals and leaves with the water mister place in the rose mold then put the mold through the die cutting machine twice to get a good press. ( Do not make the paper or card-stock too wet as the paper will break in the mold when you put it through the die cutting machine. If you do make it too wet, leave to dry until they are just moist just as you would when balling to bring shape to the petals with the tools. )  For the blue / green colored flowers, these are sprayed with the Lindy’s stamp gang sprays. Spray also the cut away inner part of the eyelet frame that was put aside. Leave to dry a little, as the petals will still be too wet. When ready put these through the machine in the rose mold. Take the petals out of the molds with the aid of the piercer tool found in the flower shaping tool kit. Leave the shaped petals to dry completely. When dry, shape the centers so the petals cup up. Prick a hole in the petal center to you can thread the stamens through the opening.  The stamen colors used are the pink and the green fond in the bright pearl assortment bundle. Take three stamens, fold in half then thread the stems through the whole. Secure with at the back with the hot glue gun. The glue is cooled off, trim the excess stems away.
When the cover is dry, adhere the outer part of the eyelet frame to the center of the cover. Cut the sprayed eyelet center frame in half and adhere each piece below and to the sides of the outer frame. The scalloped frame with the sentiment is spritzed with the Lindy’s stamp gang sprays. The banners colored with the blue spray and the out side highlighted with the gold spray. Mist so the sprays will run a little. Adhere this to the inside of the eyelet frame when dry. Arrange the leaf swirls and flowers to and around the frame. Adhere with the hot glue gun. Apply the wet glue for the Prills and Gala glitz as shown in the photo. Using the tray, apply the Prills and Gala glitz with apply the Prills with a spoon and sprinkle gently so the Prills will not bounce everywhere. The small banner that has been sprayed with gold, adhere to the bottom right of the journal cover.
