Print Blog Save This Post to My Library


Hi Friend,

How is your week going? Have you had a chance to unplug from the busyness that life brings and escaped to your craft hideaway to create?  I don't know about you, but I find that it's super important to have scheduled times each month to create. Not only is this a stress reliever from everyday cares, but it also allows you to express your creativity and experience the joy of making something beautiful that will brighten someone else's day!

Block out a couple minutes and take time to unwind, relax, have some fun and be inspired....the designers have created projects that are inspirational, colorful and fun for all, but not only that, if you find your creative mojo stuck, this inspiration is a way for you to get "unstuck" and may induce feelings of youthful joy and amusement!

“Heartfelt has the best products, the best service and the best instructions of any company I know ! The stamps and dies are beautiful and easy to work with and the results make you look like a pro!” -Velva M

“Love, love, love Heartfelt Creation Stamps and Dies. The stamps are always crisp and having matching dies saves fussy cutting. They take cardmaking to the WOW level.” -Sharon H

If you missed out on the launch of the Young at Heart Collection (which is primarily featured on the projects you will see below) ...order your stamps, dies and papers now: https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/shop/product-collections/young-at-heart

Hugs, Emma Lou

Instructions: The card size is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Die cut front of card base using the Cut Mat Create 2A die (make sure it's centered). I inked the edges using Rhubarb Stalk ink along with a dauber. Find the panel of your choice from the Young At Heart paper pad and die cut the center using the Cut Mat Create 2A die. Choose another designer paper for the background. I cut this at 5" x 5", and adhered on the inside of card.

Stamp two truck images and one leaf image in Archival Black ink on white cardstock and die cut with coordinating dies. Color the leaf with New Sprout ink and Bamboo Leaves ink. Color the two truck images with Canteloupe Peanut Brittle, New Sprout and Rounge inks. I also used the Dove Blender pen very lightly with black ink to add color to the chrome pieces on the truck. On the top truck image I trimmed off the wheels. Using an X-acto knife cut open the door. Adhere pieces of clear cardstock behind the windshield and the door window (to make it appear as if the window was partially rolled down).Gently shape truck using the flower shaping kit. Adhere both truck images together using foam dots and Dries Clear adhesive. Adhere to inside of card.

Stamp 5 journey signs and two puppy borders using Dark Brown ink on white cardstock and die cut. Trim out the puppy you've chosen to use. I colored both puppy images using Rich Cocoa and Potter's Clay ink. Shape with the flower shaping kit and adhere together using dries clear and foam squares as needed. Color two journey signs using Colorbox Dark Brown ink. Color remaining signs using Rhubarb stalk, lightly at the top and heavier at the bottom. Die cut the words and adhere the layers together to create dimension. Adhere die cut letters to sign and add brads. Cut apart leaves and arrange on the second layer of sign. Add twine to sign and adhere two signs together. Wrap twine around panel frame and adhere on the back. Adhere panel using 3D foam dots to card front.

For more tips on creating with this collection watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/kmqAVM6ibfM.

Instructions:  My little box is 2 1/2 X 4". The instructions for the box were found here.

I followed the instructions but didn't cut out the window. Before you put the box together measure and cut the panels to decorate and glue them down. I used Scor-Tape to put the box together because of the strength. I cut a strip of the paper to go around the bottom of the box as well as the top.

Next I painted the wooden knob and set it aside to dry. Once it is dry use the E6000 glue to adhere it to the box top. I just happened to have a color of paint that perfectly matched the paper. How often does that happen? To decorate the box I just found a sheet of the designer paper that had these images and I fussy cut the little scooter and used dies for the flags and signs. Dimensional tape is used to adhere them to the sides of the box.  I just love how this turned out, and it would hold quite a bit of something to be given as a gift.

Instructions: Card size 6" X 7". This card was very easy because I used the pre-cut foldout card and the card images on the designer paper from the Young At Heart Collection...I just had to die cut them! Die cut desired images as shown.

I added designer paper to each side of the foldout, die cut using the Fleur Border Basics die. Cut some grass using a scissors from other papers in the collection to make ground going all the way through the card when opened. I fussy cut the fence with the moped/scooter from the paper as well.

Stamp the Happy Birthday Banner in black ink on white cardstock and diecut. Stamp the sentiment inside on designer paper and die cut with the Spellbinders die.

Instructions: The finished size of this tent fold card is 5 1/4” x 5 1/4” (13.5 cm x 13.5 cm). Take the white card stock to make the tent fold card base to the above measurements. 

Using the same card stock, stamp, die cut and colour the truck and sentiment from the Simply Classic and Young at Heart stamp and matching die sets with archival black ink. Taking the pale yellow card stock, stamp (using Coffee Archival Ink) die cut, colour and shape the flowers and leaf cluster from the Classic Rose Collection. To shape, mist the flowers and leaves with water and then use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  

Finding the checkered design paper from the collection, cut this a little smaller than the card front. Also find the blue coloured design paper, cut this 1/2” (1.2cm) smaller than the checkered paper. Distress the edges of both these papers then emboss them using the 3d embossing folder. Take the gilding wax and apply a small amount of the wax at a time, adding more of the wax as needed. Adhere both the matting papers to the card front. 

Adhere the truck with the 3d foam squares. Arrange and adhere the leaf cluster and flower to the the truck as shown. Using the glue dot adhere the gold button to the flower centre. Apply the clear drying glue where you will want the stones to be. Sprinkle the stones on the card. When the glue is dry shake off any extra stones. To finish the card, apply the diamond stickles to the truck window, wheels, flower tips and swirls.

To see how to shape the flowering dogwood, watch the video at https://youtu.be/gI8RqHAt3vE.

Instructions:  Create a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card base. Cut a navy base layer at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4. Cut two designer layers from the Simply Classic paper collection. Sew white stitching around the edges of the designer paper that will be on top. My tension is off on the sewing and I left it that way to add to the rustic, distressed look. Distress the edges.

The rusted, well loved truck was stamped with the Simply Classic Cling Stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento Dye Ink. I used X-Press It but you can use any white Copic compatible paper of your choice.  I used the following color combo (Truck- B00, B21, B23, B29,YR20, YR23, YR26, E15, Sepia 0.03 multiliner, Greens/flowers - YG11, YG61, YG63, YG65, Tires/Crome - C0, C1, C3, C5, C7, Windows - B00, C0). Die cut the truck with the coordinating die.  Cut 2 additional images from dark cardstock. Adhere with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive for strength. Adhere 3D Crystal Lacquer to the windows and allow to dry. Apply flower soft to the bed of the truck.

The slider path can be cut with a slider die, free hand, or with Fleur Border Basic die.  I used the Fleur Border Basics. I positioned the die at a diagonal angle and only sandwiched the portion of the die I wanted to cut. The area that I did not want to cut extended off the edge of the cutting plates. I positioned it again to allow a 1/2 inch path and repeated the process. I drew some rocks around the path with a black Sharpie and shaded them with a black colored pencil. I extended the road on the adjacent page as shown.

Adhere the blue layer and plain designer paper on the front of the card base.  Apply double dimensional foam circles to the layer with the slider path to the top of the designer paper on the left. Make sure to not put the dots too close to the slider path - you will want plenty of room for the sider to move.  Adhere two stacked mini dots in between two nickels.  Adhere to the back portion of the truck. Add another two stacked mini dots in between two nickels and attach to the front part of the truck. Applying the sliding coins to the front and back of the truck will allow it to slide but not spin in a 360 degrees. This will just allow it to move along the path you created. Adhere flower soft along the edges of the road.

Stamp, color and die cut  five dogwood flowers from the Flowering Dogwood Set. Sponge the center with Lime Pastel Chalk Ink and sponge the tips with Berrylicious Ink. Stamp and die cut the green leaves from the Simply Classic Set. Color with Copic YG61, YG63 and YG65.  Shape the flowers and  and leaves with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  Adhere the stamen with Dries Clear Adhesive. Stamp and die cut the branches from the Winter's Eve Collection (Window Box Fillers). I trimmed the branches and used them for the dogwood tree branches.  Adhere the leaves, branches and flowers at the bottom of the card.

The word "JOURNEY" was stamped with Versamark and Detail Black embossing powder. Heat set.  The sentiment was die cut with the Simply classic Die. Adhere sentiment to the upper right corner of the card. And for the final touch, adhere a small wooden heart to the corner.

For more tips on creating with the Young at Heart collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/kmqAVM6ibfM.

Instructions: Card Base - Begin with a piece of white card stock measuring 8.5" x 8.5". Score all the way down center, turn and score down center once again which will give you a card base with four equal sized squares. 

Next, using a pair of scissors, cut up the score line of one square stopping when you get to the center of the card base where all score lines meet. Score a diagonal line into box on top of box that you just cut into running from where cut stops to top corner. Slip cut square over other bottom panel of card base and adhere together. Your scored diagonal panel should be on top of the finished base.

For a visual tutorial, please look to YouTube or google Corner Pop Up Card Tutorial.

Decorating - Trim black mats for all sides of card measuring 4" x 4". Trim out desired decorative papers for all panels measuring just slightly smaller than black mats. Ink all edges with a soft brown colored ink. Adhere designer paper and mats together. For main front panel of card, locate premade card panel displaying classic car and palm tree with racing strips and lace accents along the side. Fussy cut image using scissors as shown on card front, ink all edges with a brown colored ink and stamp sentiment onto image panel using a black ink. 

Locate sentiment strips and trim one sentiment from the Forever Young strip and a strip from the Road Trip sentiments to fit the bottom of card as shown, as well as the Journey image from another premade card panel found in the paper collection. Ink all edges with a brown colored ink. Adhere background sentiment strips to card as shown. 

Using pop dots, adhere fussy cut card panel to card front and then adhere Journey sentiment over top, along the side. Adhere to card base. Moving along to panels on the inside...trim out Forever Young sentiment with stars and stripes and Adventure classic car image, ink all edges with a light brown ink and add to panel as shown. Adhere panel to left side of card base. 

For the panel that will face you, trim out classic car image from scrapbook page within the paper collection. Stamp sentiment onto panel using a black colored ink. Stamp and die cut the grass and fence image from the Wildwood Cottage Accents Cling Stamp Set onto white card stock using black ink. Die cut, color, trim fence, shaped slightly and adhere to card panel. To adhere panel to card base, apply Dries Clear Adhesive to top corner of the diagonal score line only - bottom portion of panel will remain free so card is able to fold together and close. 

For bottom panel, adhere a fairly plain piece of coordinating decorative paper matted with black paper to allow for a written message. Add glitter to palm tree, and all flowers in the trunk of classic car on all panels using a dries clear adhesive with fine tip.

Instructions:  Start by cutting the parts for the plane according to the directions found here out of a combination of Black card stock and designer paper from the Young At Heart Paper Collection. 

I wanted the plane to look like one of the Vintage planes you would see at an airshow and they are usually sponsored so I stamped the sentiments on white card stock using Versamark and heat embossed with Turquoise Embossing Powder before die cutting with the matching die for the sentiments on the body of the plane and the Cut Mat Create 2B Die for the ones on the wings. 

The Sun Kissed Fleur flowers were stamped on white card stock with Platinum Planet ink before being die cut with the matching die. They were distressed with Teal Zeal and shaped with the Flower Shaping tool before finishing off the centers with Mini Prills. 

To finish the propeller blades off properly the propeller images were stamped on white card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with Sterling Silver embossing powder before die cut with the matching die and attaching as shown.

For more tips on creating with this collection watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/kmqAVM6ibfM.

Instructions:  For more images of this project see here. Cut 12 pieces of 4 x 4" out of gray board. Cover all 12 pieces on one side with pattern paper, photo, and any image you want. Distress all the edges.

Now take six pieces and put the blank side up, mark the 6 pieces 1/2 inch in, on both sides and 1 directly in the middle (I will put up some drawings on my blog). IMPORTANT the photos on the bottom parts are facing to the right and the photos on the top part are facing the other direction, otherwise they are upside down when you open the book!!!

Now place one piece in front of you with the lines up apply Scor-Tape on the guidelines, lay the left edge of the ribbon along the tape at the top and bottom line so that the ribbon trails to the right, place the middle ribbon the opposite direction, allowing the ribbon to trail off the left.

Now select an " Unmarked" piece of decorated Gray board and apply tape or glue to the whole back surface of the undecorated side, place this on top of the Glued ribbons and the Gray board.

Flip the top and bottom ribbons over the decorated side of the gray board that was just glued down, the top and bottom ribbons should now trail off the left, and the middle will go to the right, do NOT adhere the ribbons!

Select another marked piece and place that with the marked side up directly on top of the first set, Repeat these steps till you have one piece left.

Before adhering the final piece of gray board trim the ribbons so that the ends are hidden when the project is complete.

Now Grab the top part and bend it then all the pages are falling down, then bend it again and they will fall again you can go on for hours.....

For the box you have to cut a piece of Black Cardstock at 10 1/2 x 10 1/2 " and score it all the way round at 3" then cut in the score lines on 2 sides and glue the box together.

Now cut a piece of black cardstock for the lid at 7 5/8 x 7 5/8" and score this all the way round at 1 1/2 " and cut on the score lines on 2 sides and glue the lid together, now die cut 4 ornate borders and glue these on the sides of the lid, now you can put decorative paper on the box and some images from the collection.

For more tips on creating with this collection watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/kmqAVM6ibfM.

Instructions: Card size is 6 1/4" X 6".  Fold the insert (6 1/4" X 13") and make a 3/4" score at the top of the large back panel then add a  5 1/2" X 6 1/4" piece of white card stock to the score to make a back for the card so that it stands up-right. Cut paper from the Young At Heart designer paper to fit each layer and glue in place then glue the front, shorter fold up to make a pocket in front for a large tag.

Cut two borders out of the designer paper from the Delicate Borders die, one from the Border Essentials and one from the Ornate Borders and Pockets die (for the tag).  Glue the borders on and cover edges of the two Delicate Borders with some pretty ribbon, tie a bow and glue it to the top left back panel. 

Stamp, die cut and color the Window Box Fillers, the car, plane, happy birthday banner, greenery, and palm trees. I stamped these all on white cardstock using black ink. I used Copic markers for everything except the flowers and greenery, I sponged them with Cantaloupe, with Summer Sky and New Sprout Memento Inks. I stamped and die cut an extra propeller for the airplane and popped it up. My flowers were formed and filled, blue with Prills and Cantaloupe with Stickles for centers.  I used some "tiger eye" baubles as fillers with my flowers. The car and plane and popped up with foam tape. 

For my tag, I stamped the sentiment with teal onto designer paper and cut it with the Large Oval Die and the mat with the Small Ovals. I cut a rectangle 4" X 3 1/8" for my tag and made a coordinating second layer for it and then glued the Ornate Border to the top, glued the ovals on at an angle and then glued my flower spray at the top.

Instructions:  For images of the inside pages see here. The final layered card measures 6" x 6". Cut designer paper for each side of the page, die cutting the center using the circle die. For each pages I have layered 2 circle borders with coordinating paper. Once all paper are adhered to the base pages, start decorating each page.

Stamp, die cut and color some sunflower accents, filler leaves, dogwood flowers, petunia flowers. I stamped everything in Archival Black ink except the dogwood flowers(Plum & Sunflower Archival), the Leaf from the Simply Classic set (Leaf-Archival ink) and the leaves from the Sunflower Accents set (Plum Archival on patterned paper and edged with Carved Pumpkin Archival ink). Die cut decorative borders, and fussy cut the tags and cards from the tag sheet. Shape the flowers using the deluxe flower shaping kit. Each page is designed and embellished in different style keeping the collection theme in place.

For the last page a small envelope is created to hold all the tags and journaling. Each page is given a base border using the border dies. For the front of the album, 2 circle die cuts are adheres on a foam adhesive and placed on one corner with leaves, tiny flowers tucked in. On the other corner a bunch is created using the sunflower accents and filler flowers.

Arrange as desired, I added Crystal Clear to the flowers with prills in the center.

For more tips on creating with this collection watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/kmqAVM6ibfM.

Instructions: Start with the background patterned paper. Cut this pattern into 3 pieces, the black and white border, the red and white with the blue border and the light blue square with black border. I used a 12 x 12" piece of black cardstock as a base. Adhere the largest border to the cardstock. Adhere the next section to the background using 3D foam squares.

Cut a strip of the red patterned paper that is 4" wide, mat it in black cardstock and adhere to the middle of the layout using 3D foam squares. Then adhere the middle blue patterned square to the middle of the layout using another layer of 3D foam.

3. Find and cut out the mini check borders with pink. Add a 4" piece of it to the bottom of the red patterned border. Using the "Let the Good Times Roll" and black ink, stamp just above that check/pink border.

Mat your photo in red patterned paper, black and white cardstock. Add black photo corners to the photo and adhere to the middle of the layout using 3D foam.

Find and cut out the star border journal block, and the "Forever Young" image. Adhere these just above the matted photo. Cut a piece of the teal patterned paper that s 4x3" and using the plain border die, cut one edge. Cut a piece of black cardstock that is 4x3" and cut the edge using the scallop border die. Adhere these pieces together and trim any pattern overhang. Adhere this to the top of the red border, and I added the mini bottle cap embellishment.

Cut 2 pieces of black cardstock that are 1.5 x 2.5" and flag one end of each. Adhere one in the top left hand corner and 1 in the bottom right hand corner. Add a piece of the mini check/pink border to the top left flag.

Stamp and die cut 1 of the convertible car image using Black Archival Ink. I added colour to the image using Chameleon Pens. The car itself was coloured using BL3, and I used the fuse to create highlights on the vehicle to look like shine. I used CG8 for the chrome of the car. I used all of the other colours (YG3, BL6, PK4, YL2, OR4) to add colour to the flowers in the back.

Using the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen I added shine to the entire car. Adhere the car in the bottom right hand corner of the layout using 3D foam. Add the buttons for extra embellishing.

Instructions: The finished size of this tent fold card is 5 1/4 ” x 5 1/4 ” (13.5 cm x 13.5 cm).

Taking the white card stock make the tent fold card base. Find the blue coloured and checkered print design paper needed from the Young at Heart paper collection. Cut the blue (1.2 cm) smaller all around for the second matting layer. Distress the edges. 

Taking the white card stock, black archival ink, Young at Heart and Simply Classic stamps and matching dies stamp, colour and die cut the car, leaves and journey sentiment. The leaf branches are stamped and cut x 4. Apply green colour to only one of the leaf branches. This will be placed behind the tail end of the car later. 

Still using the white card stock, take the border die and cut x 3 borders. Trim the borders to fit behind the matting and two for the front card. 

The placement of the layers for the card: First being the blue paper matting adhering with the foam squares, the trimmed white borders adhered between the blue matting and the checkered matting also with foam squares. The two front boarder layers adhered with Dries Clear Adhesive then the car adhered with the foam squares. The sentiment adhered also with the foam squares to the top left of the card.

My husband likes the idea of Sandra Carey of cutting off the flowers to make a man’s card. It was fairly easy with the truck. To make a man’s card not using flowers with the VWBug, I guess I would have to use only half of the Bug or car. It would be nice to be able to add flowers if wanted but not to have them on the stamp of the car. They could have been a separate small stamp and die. I have a lot of male relatives and pink just isn’t their color.

I also liked the pickup without the flowers. While I love the vehicles with flowers I have a lot of men cards to do and would like more of the cars without the flowers. As usual, though I love every collection I get. They're all absolutely beautiful. Thanks again for your wonderful work,
