New Inspiration and Peacock Paisley Sneak Peek


Hello Everyone!
How are you doing this morning? Do you need some creative beauty to jump-start your day and wipe away the winter blahhs, you are in the right place:)...or if you are in a warm climate, send it our way! Here's a little insider for you...this morning I walked into my office and started typing on my keyboard when to my horror a mouse was staring at me. I did a great vocal exercise that would surely have scared the living daylights out of it when I realized it wasn't moving and someone played a prank on me. Needless to say there have been many shrieks in the office and warehouse today. Never a dull moment:)

...On to prettier things:) The design team is bringing you another Wednesday filled to the brim with a huge variety of techniques and projects that are sure to inspire you!

We are only 8 days away from the launch of the Peacock Paisley Collection!  This collection is a "Creative Oasis" it's hard to describe it! You can see it for yourself with a preview of it here http://hcgo.co/PeacockPaisley and also see the sneak peek below.

Are you close to the Orlando, FL or Mesa, AZ area this weekend? If yes, we have a booth set up at these events with demoes and you can see the projects and products up close and personal. Follow this link: https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/craftshows for the details.

We would love to hear from you. Leave a comment below and let us know which project inspired you the most this week. Hugs, Emma Lou

Project Instructions:

Butterfly KindnessOther Products: Paper: SUP Naturals white A4 card (x 3); Ink: SUP: Perfect plum, Pumpkin pie; Ranger distress ink black soot; Ranger: ink tool, distressing tool, water spritzer, bone folder, heat gun; Spellbinders: Fancy tags two S5-030, Fancy tags three S5- 031; Other: Versa mark pad, Needle and gold thread, Wow embossing powder black glint, Viva decor Inka-Gold 918, Diamond stickles, Ruler, Double sided tape, Pencil, Spatula.

Instructions: This card size is 21.1 cm x 14.8 cm. To make your card base: with one of the A4 cards, fold this in half. Use the bone folder to sharpen the fold. Using the remaining A4 cards and the spellbinder dies cut the tags. Three for the oval shape, 6 for the longer shape. (Glue 3 together for each tag.) For the card front, cut 20.9 cm x 13.6 cm. Put aside the remaining card, this will be used to make the butterflies later. From the paper pad, find the checked paper. Cut 2 strips 2.5 cm x the length of this paper; this will be for your pleated paper ribbon. Cut 21.5 cm x 14.2 cm. of the same paper; this will be your matting. Find also from the paper pad a background print with the "Kindness" banner, cut this out. (These banner prints are great for simple sentiments for cards.) To make the paper ribbon: attach both strips together in the length. Ravel and fry the both edges in the length, do this with the distressing tool, then box pleat the strip of paper. Lay the pleated paper across your card front to measure how much you will need. You need to do this now, as when the paper is stitched you can not cut it smaller. The stitching will unravel. Once you have the correct length, fold the edges to neaten and cut away any excess paper. With the prick tool and ruler, make the wholes for the backstitching. The ruler will hold the pleats flat, also giving you a guide to make the wholes. Backstitch the pleats down with gold thread. Apply double sided tape to the back of the pleated strip ready to attach later. With the water spritzer, lightly mist the paper strip. Using the end of the pencil and your fingers shape the pleats so they are rounded. (Look to the photo of the card to see the finished result.) Put aside to air dry. When this is dry, it will be hard and hold its shape quite well. To make the butterflies, you will need the remaining card, the HCPC 3652, HCD1 758 stamp and dies. For the stamping, use the versa mark pad; black glint embossing powder and the heat gun. Make two of the smaller butterflies and one of the longer butterflies. Color the butterflies with the SUP inks. Taking the matting paper, ravel and fray the edges with the distressing tool. Apply black soot ink with the ink tool, to the edges of the; card base, card front, matting paper, the three tags. To apply the Viva gold to your edges; use the spatula to take a little out of the jar and place this onto a piece of paper/plastic sheet or a old plate. From this source apply this to the edges of the papers, card, paper ribbon, butterflies and the tag embossed edges generously. If you use your fingers in the jar, this will cause mold in the product.

The layering of the card as follows; Attach the matting with double dots to the card base, the same with the card front. Tape down the paper ribbon across the center of the card front. Where the tags are to be placed, flatten the ribbon underneath the tags. Using double dots attach the tags in a row. Fold the butterfly wings up from the body. Cut the double dots to size, so it will fit to the body of the butterfly without it being seen. Center and adhere the butterflies to the tags. Apply stickles to high light parts of the wings, feelers and body. To finish, add the sentiment banner "Kindness" to the bottom center of the card.
