Inspiration and Technique Video  --  Posted: Wednesday, Apr 23 2014

Hi Everyone,
Thank you so much for joining us on this fabulous Wednesday. Sometimes it's way to easy to get stuck in a mid week rut, so we are bringing you a new video and many project samples from the design team. This will brighten your day and inspire you to keep creating fabulous, yet easy projects:)

In this video I will share techniques that add texture, dimension and shine to your projects.  Your creations will go from flat to fabulous when you transform basic circle shapes into fun, interactive design elements. I'll heat things up as I demonstrate how to create epoxy embellishments, and share my secret tip for perfectly placed sentiments.  

Heartfelt Creations will be at the Milwaukee, WI and Akron, OH stamp and scrapbook convention this upcoming weekend. If you're from those areas, we would love to see you! Happy Creating, Emma Lou Beechy

Adventure Of A Lifetime

Other Products: White Card Stock, Embossing Powder, Distressed Ink, Memento Ink, Glitter, adhesive and die cutting machine.

Instructions: Start by following the template found here and cut it out in the center of a 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper. As you can see the template is simply a series of U shapes, each 1/2" smaller then the other. After you cut out your template center the largest Grand Labels 4 over the template to form the base of your card. Next cut a second cut of the Grand Labels 4 and score it at the 1/2" mark across the top. This will be fastened to the back of the first die cut to allow the card to open. Inside the openings on the front of the card I used 3 of the pre-made images that come with the Celebrate the Journey Paper Collection centered in the openings finished off with a 3D balloon stamped from the Balloon and Bicycle PreCut Set. Last but not least, stamp, emboss and die cut the flowers using the Open Vintage Floret PreCut Set and the Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set for the center of the flower. Finish by adding a little glitter and a few more accessories from the Celebrate the Journey Paper Collection.

When greeting cards are posted, often they do not state the finished size of the card or give enough info in the instructions to surmise how big the card is. As a card maker, I would like to know the size of cards being posted.


Donna Ellis Said...
Your designers always feature your products beautifully. Today I am especially inspired. Thanks so much!


Maribeth Huddleston Said...
