Creative inspiration that gets you started on your next crafting project


Love the ideas and they are so beautiful and fun to make - Anita Bernard


Hi Friend,

Happy Wednesday! How is your day going? Is this week going exactly as planned and fun memories being made or do you find yourself swallowed up in a mountain of cares or concerns with pressures from work, family, health, or just life in general.....

If you said yes, to any of the above stressing life situations....I want to encourage you to take a moment for yourself and take some time to create something beautiful! This will allow you to de-stress and lose yourself in the wonderland of creativity....and maybe in the process of creating, think about someone that needs to know that you care and bless them with your one of a kind card. You will find yourself rejuvenated and there's just something so satisfying when you see your friend's face or even someone you don't know well, completely light up and be so grateful for your kind gift!  

To get you jump-started for your next card, take  some time to be inspired by the new inspiration that has never been seen before......you WILL be SOOO inspired.....I'm needing to wipe the drool off my face, lol:)

If you missed out on the Classic Petunia release,follow this link: http://hcgo.co/ClassicPetunia to see all the details and get yours today and you will be on your way to joining the hundreds of crafters who are already having fun creating with this new collection.

I would love to hear what inspired you on the blog today, you can leave a comment at the very end of the blog.

Take care, Emma Lou

Instructions: Start by taking a piece of card stock 5 1/2" x 12" and score on the long edge at the 3" and 6" marks. Flip the card stock on the long edge and make a small mark at the 9" mark on both of the long edges.

You can find a template (here) to demonstrate the shape of the card. Using the Regal Borders and Pockets Die, die cut a decorative edge along the top of the card as shown and then proceed to cover the card with paper from the Classic Petunia Paper Collection finishing with another die cut from the Regal Borders and Pockets Die to dress up the top. The image in the center of the card taken from one of the pre-done images from the Classic Petunia Paper Collection finished with the basket that was stamped on White Card Stock and die cut with the matching die before lightly distressing with Tuxedo Black and attaching as shown slightly bowed out for dimension. The flower garland and flowers were stamped on white card stock with Moonlight White and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder and die cut with the matching dies. They were colored using the Stack and Store Daubers and a combination of Pearlescent Ivy and Lilac Posies inks. Before attaching the flowers they were shaped with the Flower Shaping tool and accented with Prills. The Hummingbird was stamped on White Card Stock with Tuxedo Black and die cut with the matching die before being colored with a Dove Blending Pen and a combination of Pearlescent Thyme, Sky Blue and Lilac Posies inks.

Instructions

Other Products: 65 lb. white cardstock, heat tool, paper trimmer, pearl designer hat pins, baby breath, green ribbon, floral moss, 5 inch styrofoam ball, 3.4 x 2.5 x 3.5 inch floral foam, hot glue gun, 12 inch wood dowel, floral tape, rocks to add weight to urn, pearls, watercolor brush, Tattered  Rose and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Oxide Ink, Mini-mister, SVG file Thank You For The Music, flower soft or green spray acrylic paint. 

Watch this tutorial https://youtu.be/KOy_qNB9OAk to learn how to shape the Classic Petunia.

Instructions: Click here to see a close up view of this topiary.  Create the urn from Thank You For The Music SVG file here. I used paper from the Classic Petunia paper Collection. Place a few glass decorative stones in the bottom to weight the urn. Trim the floral foam to create a snug fit inside the urn. Stuff left over foam around the edges to prevent the stones from falling out. Spray paint or cover the round styrofoam ball with flower soft. I had Flower Soft so I applied Dries Clear Adhesive to ball and then the flower soft. (Tip: You can also create your own by rubbing two pieces of styrofoam together, applying some re-inkers and allow to dry).  Apply floral tape the full length of the dowel. Apply one end of the dowel half way inside the styrofoam ball and the other into the base floral foam. 

Stamp the small and large Classic Petunia flowers on white cardstock using white embossing powder. Heat set. The petals were watercolored using Tattered Rose and worn Lipstick Distress Ink.   The leaves were watercolored using Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress oxide Ink. The petals were lightly misted on the back for easy molding and shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. 

The flowers were layered and adhered with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive. 

Sprigs of Baby Breath were applied using a hot glue gun. Small floral bows were placed in locations around the ball. The flowers were applied to the topiary using pearl hat pins. 

Floral moss was applied around the top of the urn. For the finishing touch, tie a bow around the stem at the base of the floral topiary.

Watch this tutorial to see how to shape the petunias https://youtu.be/KOy_qNB9OAk.

Instructions: Inspiration for this project came from My Sisters Scrapper and a step by step video of this card clutch can be located here. Take one sheet of 12 x 12 inch decorative paper and decide which side you want inside and outside for your clutch purse. With the right side of the 12 inch decorative paper down, bring the corners together and fold the paper in half diagonally to form a triangle. From the fold, turn up approximately 1 inch and press the fold along the bottom. Flip the triangle over and turn the 1 inch fold to the other side. Press along the previous fold line to reinforce it. Open up the paper to the inside of the clutch purse. It is easier to continue if your turn the paper so the fold lines are in the vertical position. Bring both corners with folds up to the center of the paper. Fold in a mountain valley style. The center fold will be a mountain fold.. Close the clutch purse and fold back the corner. Add a magnet closure to the inside of the clutch purse. Stamp one small, one medium and one large size petunia with Stampin Up early espresso ink. Stamp two leaves with Stampin Up garden green ink. Use Stampin Up Melon Mambo ink and a stack and store dauber to color the three flowers. Shape the petunias according to the tutorial on how to shape the petunias. Place Hot Mama prills in the center of each flower with designer dry clear glue. Add a spritz of glue to flower tips and sprinkle shell white glitter on the tips of each flower. Attach completed flowers to the outside of the clutch purse. Place pearl embellishment in the middle to simulate the closure.

Other products: Heavy weight white card stock, White card stock, Glitter, Liquid Pearls, Dyed seam binding (using Wilted Violet Distress ink refill)

Watch this tutorial https://youtu.be/KOy_qNB9OAk to learn how to shape the Classic Petunia.

Instructions: Card is 6 x 6" size. Start with Heavy weight card stock (one 12 x 6" piece and two 6 x 3"). On long side, score at 1 1/2, 3, 9 and 10 1/2". Fold like an easel card on both sides leaving a 6" space in the center (the two 3 x 6" pieces will be glued to the first 1 1/2" section-flush on left outside edge and the 10 1/2" section flush with right outside edge). 

Sponge a piece of 6 x 6" decorative paper (with purple dye ink) and glue to center. Die cut Raindrops on Roses die X 2 out of white and add to back panel. Cut out decorative designed rectangle from Classic petunia paper (about 2 3/4 X 4) and stamp Happy Birthday (from Small Classic Petunia stamp set) then glue to a light green piece of decorative paper and glue to the 6 X 6 inside panel. Cut two pieces of decorative paper 2 7/8 X 5 7/8" and glue to the 3 X 6" card stock pieces. Cut gate at gate opening/latch, weave ribbon (dyed seam binding-crinkled) and glue gate pieces to the front two 3 X 6" pieces (be sure not to glue across opening). Make sure ribbon is long enough to open all the way without pulling ribbon out of the gate. Make an extra fluffy/crinkly bow with more seam binding to add to gate above tied bow for more fluff (instead of having to retie a triple bow each time card is opened). 

Stamp and die cut Classic Leaf, Blossoms from Birds and Blossoms, Leafy Branch, Small Classic Petunias, Petunia Bouquet, and Regal Hummingbirds. Color Hummingbirds and flowers in basket. Sponge color on basket, and Petunia corner along with the classic leaf, Petunias and blossoms. Form flowers and leaves then add Prills.

Add Liquid Pearls to flower basket. Use a piercing tool to pierce small hole in center of basket then string purple thread to fashion a "rope" hanger and attach basket to top right side. Add classic leaf to left side being sure to keep clear of ribbon (make sure ribbon can still move) then add blossoms and some extra Prills (as if small flowers). Add Petunia corner to top left and then add flowers and leaves and white Prills in various places. Stick foam tape to back of Hummingbird and attach to card.

Stamp 2 set of petunias from Small and large Classic Petunia using archival ink and pine needle for the leaves. Using the coordinating dies, die cut all the stamped images. Use the Stack and store daubers to shade the flowers. Finish the flowers by stacking each other and lay it flat and add prills at the center.

Stamp and die cut the petunia classic bouquet using archival ink. Color the images using water color and distress ink. Arrange the resin frame on one side of the canvas. Place the color petunia bouquet on one side of it using hot glue. Add prills, glitter, stamen as desired to complete the composition on the canvas panel.

For the sentiment heat emboss the sentiment on a black card stock and dry emboss using heat gun. Place the sentiment at last once composition is complete.

Adhere to the middle of the layout. Cut a piece of white cardstock that is 2.5 x 8.5" and round the bottom two corners and adhere to the bottom portion of the purple patterned paper. Cut a strip of the dark green patterned paper that is 2 x 12". Cut a piece of the pink patterned paper that is 0.75 x 12. Adhere these layers together and then to the layout, just below the middle. Add the rhinestone ribbon along the middle of the layered border.

 Find and cut out the green mini tag, the mini framed green journal block and the purple “Life's Beautiful Moments” strip. Set aside. Stamp and die cut 5 of the Classic Petunia Bouquet basket images. I added a little bit of colour to the images using a neutral Chameleon pen. Adhere these below the layered border. This creates a scalloped border look that I love. 

Mat your photo in white and green cardstock, and add white photo corners to the photo. Adhere to the layout using 3D foam squares to the left hand side of the layout. Add the mini tag just above your matted photo using a thinner 3D foam tape and add a twine bow. Add the mini journal block to the left of the matted photo. Die cut one of the Arianna Lace die from white cardstock and adhere to the right hand side of the matted photo.

 Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the largest Large Classic Petunia flowers and leaves. Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the smallest Small Classic Petunia flowers. Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the larger Small Classic Petunia flowers. I added colour to the leaves using Chameleon Pens. I added colour to the flowers using ColorBox inks and Heartfelt Creations daubers. Shape and assemble the flowers and leaves. Using a clear drying liquid adhesive I added Crystal Clear glitter to the petals of all of my flowers. Let dry. Using a liquid adhesive I added dew drops and clear beads to the middle of the flowers. Let dry. Adhere one of the smallest petunias to the left of the matted photo. I also added sequins, gems and pearls around the flower. To the right of the photo I added the largest petunia and a small petunia, as well as other embellishments. I added a medium and a small petunia to the layered border. At the bottom of the layout I added the other medium petunia and then arced the title strip over top of the flower.

Watch this tutorial to see how to shape the petunias https://youtu.be/KOy_qNB9OAk.

Instructions: This tent fold card when finished measures 8.25 x 5.70" ( 21 cm x 14.5 cm ) Make the tent fold card base to measure 8.25 x 5.70" ( 21 cm x 14.5 cm ) from the 300gm card stock. Cut the purple card stock card to fit the base front. Cut the chosen design paper from the paper collection a little smaller. Distress the edge of the design paper with the distressing tool and adhere to the purple card stock with the double sided foam tape or double dots. ( all the design paper layers are done this way ) Taking the purple card stock again cut 7.68" x 5.31" (19.5 cm x  13.5 cm) Find the contrasting design paper for the front, cut this a little smaller then adhere all to the card base. Adhere the lace and ribbon across the card front. Prepare the embellishments by stamping, die cutting and colouring. ( 3 flower sets, three leaf sets, four corners and one boarder ). Apply the glitter to the flower stamens, when dry adhere to the flower centres. Make the double triple bow from the ribbon. Taking the purple card stock and the HCD1-7121 die set cut the words thank you 4 times and from the design paper once. Trim and adhere together adding the design paper as the top layer. Using the HCD2-751 die set, cut four leaves from the purple card stock. Taking the design paper stamp the sentiment Lets celebrate and cut to a banner. Adhere to all to the card front. I used the hot glue gun as it sets faster. Taking the die set HCD1-7121 cut the letters to form thank you at least 4 times. Trim so the letters become single letters. Adhere the first layer to the card front then add the rest of the layers. This is so the letters are easier to layer and adhere. Once all is secure and dry apply the crystal lacquer to the words.

Watch this tutorial https://youtu.be/KOy_qNB9OAk to learn how to shape the Classic Petunia.

Instructions: To see a close up view of this egg click here. First glue the 2 half eggs together as one and cut a little piece of the bottom so that it will stand, then cover the whole egg with clay as smooth as you can, let it dry, in the mean while you can stamp, and cut and color the petunias. I used yellow tones, but you can do your own color! When the egg is dry you can paint it with dark brown acrylic paint, let this dry very good!

If the egg is dry you can start decorating it, first I made a bow, glue this down with the heat gun and then I put some cheesecloth in front of this, now you can put all your flowers on it in a nice arrangement, at the end I curled the wire around a pencil and stuck it in between the flowers, at the end of the wire you can glue a butterfly, and also one on the flowers. I cut the butterfly out of the petunia collection.
