Altered Frame

Here is a frame I picked up at Goodwill. I saw it on the shelf and had just the thing in mind for it! First I painted it black to better display the flowers. Then I cut pieces of decorator paper to fit into each frame. I used the Botanical flower PreCut sets from Heartfelt Creations. I stamped them on cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers. I didn't worry about staying in the lines, because I would just be cutting them out with the matching Rose Creations Spellbinder die. Then I formed the petals and adhered them to create 3-D Flowers. I stamped some leaves from Heartfelt's Leaf Medley PreCut set, colored them with Copics and cut them out with the Folliage Spellbinder die. I arranged the flowers and leaves how I wanted them in the frames and adhered them in place. I felt that the frames were a little to blank. So I added some Cream Pearls with the Viva Decor Pearl Pen! Be sure to look at the Heartfelt Creations blog. They have some sneak peaks of the stamps that will be released on September 13!!

Love you bunches!

Here I am using something old and something new, nothing borrowed, but something blue! Actually I am using purple, but it's close! LOL. This could work as a wedding card as well as a greeting to let that special person in your life, know how you feel about them! I used the Decorative basket dies for the basket, then I used the flowers from the older Posy Patch Garden Delights set. I colored the flowers with Copic markers, then cut them from the Watering Can. Pop them up in the basket...and you have bunches of LOVE! I used the ScorBuddy and Scor Bug to create a frame on the center cream piece and Swiss Dot embossing folder for the background. Stamp the sentiment on the banner dies from Spellbinders and finish the card off with some Viva Decor Pearls! Be sure to check the beautiful cards this week from the rest of the Design Team and Heartfelt Creations!!

Heartfelt Creations...Again!

It's Wednesday, so I will show another Heartfelt Creations card! This is what I made for my Mom for her birthday last week. I used paper from one of the Memory Box 6 x 6 paper packs for the decorator paper. I stamped my flower trio onto white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. Then I faux stitched around the image with the ScorBug. I found the embossed cream paper in my scrap box and even though I had stamped my image on white, I like the effect of using the cream with the white. I stamped some extra flowers to add some dimension to image. Be sure to check out they beautiful cards that the Design Team created this week.

New Products - Fireworks!

New from Tsukineko is the Fireworks Sprays! They are very glitzy!! They come in several color and they can be used to add glittery color to ribbon, twill, flowers, paper and more. I use three techniques on this card using the Fireworks sprays. First I sprayed some of the Danube Blue and the Lulu Lavender onto a craft sheet, letting the colors blend together a little. Then I inked the butterfly stamp from Penny Black and stamped it on white cardstock. There was still lots of ink on the craft sheet, so next I rolled over the ink with my brayer. Then brayered over a 4" x 5 1/4" light purple cardstock until the entire paper is covered. The background is now sparkly with color. Stamp a design over the paper with a background stamp and VersaFine black ink. The third technique, I stamped my sentiment onto paper and cut out with the Spellbinders Petite oval die. After I cut out the oval, I left the die over the paper and sprayed over the sentiment with the Lulu Lavender fireworks spray. Remove the die and you have a glittery sentiment. I used black cardstock for the card and accents to really make the glitz sparkle! I'm not sure how much sparkle you can see from the picture, but you can see the real card at the store. Thanks for looking!
