Autumn Crafting Project Ideas: New Creative Inspiration & Artisan Project How-tos


Hello Everyone,
Happy October 1st! Thanks for joining us on the blog today:)  Do you love trying new things? This weekend I tried Pickleball for something new and yes it was stretching...muscles:) Pickleball is a cross between tennis and badminton and it was so fun! We used muscles I don’t think we’ve ever used before. I also loved it because it was a way to do something fun and competitive and play with friends.

I had the chance to create with products from an upcoming collection and used some of my favorite coloring techniques on them: a blender marker dipped into inks that coordinate. I stamped an image with light green and colored it with green-- a color combination I don’t normally do. But it turned out incredibly pretty and I was super excited about it. Here are step by step instructions for that blender marker coloring technique. http://www.heartfeltcreations.us/howto?view=videos&videoID=45

Refresh yourself with the completely new creative inspiration, artisan projects and don't miss out on a sneak peek of the All Geared Up Collection releasing next Wednesday, October 8th. Hugs, Emma Lou

The versatile All Geared Up dies feature fanciful sprockets, gears, cogs, chains and license plates that can be shaped into innovative 3-D embellishments or die cut from white cardstock to create beautiful doily accents. Six hand drawn stamp sets continue the mechanical theme with a large Cogs and Gears background stamp, themed accent stamps, mechanical bouquets and playful sentiments that are "geared" to carry your project across the finish line with a smile.

Project Instructions:

Other Products: Ink, Foam Tape, sponge dauber, liquid pearls, plain card stock, black pen.

A Place Called HomeInstructions: Cut base of card from designer paper, then cut plaid base 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" and apply to 6" x 6" base. Faux stitch around the plaid paper with a black pen. This is just adding small dash lines straight around the paper. It will give the illusion that the card is stitched. Next using the scalloped posy die cut out half of a circle with the red designer paper, then line your die up to the cut marks and cut again making a circle. Fussy cut out the fancy circle from the paper and stamp the sentiment in the top middle with brownish-red ink. I used Distress Ink/Aged Mahogany. Using the Grand Calibur cut out two lace strips from the Decorative Flower Pot die. Then hand cut out the flourish strips from the paper line and layer over the top of the lace borders as shown, then add a line of liquid pearls down the center. Let the strips dry. Once dry apply to the center of your card with foam tape. Then place your cut scallop circle in the center with foam tape, lastly adding your stamped flourish cut out. Stamp the smaller butterfly stamp on designer paper and fussy cut out. Pinch together and add to the card as shown with Dries Clear Glue. Lastly fussy cut out the sunflowers from the designer paper and then add to the front of the card with foam tape. Apply your finished card to a solid plain card stock base of 6" x 6".
