Instructions: Cut white cardstock to 6 x 8 3/4", score and fold at 3" and 7 3/4" to create 6 x 4 3/4" card base. Cut green/peach 6 x 6" panel from the Camelia Carnation paper to 6 x 4 3/4" size. Using from the Fleur Border die, diecut along the wave pattern of panel. Cut the elegant fleur border from a 2 x 6 " piece of white cardstock and attach along the backside of peach panel. Sponge edges of green panel with Pistachio ink and attach onto left side of card. Sponge edges of peach panel with Rose Coral ink and attach to right side of card. Using from the Cut Mat Create 1A, diecut rectangle from pink paper in the collection. Sponge edges with Rose Coral and attach to left side of card. Using from the Circle Basics Large, diecut the butterfly circle from 6 x 6 card front. Sponge edges of circle with Pistachio ink and use dimensional adhesive to attach onto card as shown.

Stamp both sets of leaves from the HCPC-3806 Small Camelia Carnation stamp set in Bamboo Leaves onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp the large, medium and small set of 3 from HCPC-3806 Small Camelia Carnation stamp set in Tangelo ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. You'll need 2 of the large, 5 medium and 1 small petals. Diecut 2 of the small flower bases, using from the HCD1-7165 Large Camelia die.

Use the Stack and Store daubers to sponge the edges of carnation petals lightly with Rose Coral ink. Sponge 3 leaves with Pistachio and New Sprout ink.

Use the Flower Shaping kit to shape the leaves. Use the HCFB1-464 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold to shape carnation petals, then also crinkle with fingers to get that ruffled look. For shaping tips, refer to the tutorial above. Stack 3 petals into each other twice, to create a large and medium sized carnation. Create 2 cone shaped flower bases and glue the carnations into them. This gives the carnations an upright shape. Shape the remaining petals into a bud form.

Attach carnations and leaves onto the card as pictured. Trim down sentiment, sponge edges with Rose Coral ink and attach to card. Use Dries Clear glue along with Baby's Breath glitter to add a touch of sparkle over the carnations, leaves and rest of card as desired.

Instructions: There are instructions on Splitcoast Stampers and Pinterest for the Tri Fold Shutter Card. I found one and made the card base. I measured and cut panels of coordinating papers and glued them down with dries clear adhesive. I fussy cut the top part of one of the card fronts and glued it to the back panel of the card.

I cut out one of the sentiments from the paper collection and used dimensional tape to adhere it to the center panel.

Stamp the flowers with Rosebud Memento Ink and Archival Sap Green Ink. Cut out using the coordinating dies and then use the inks to color the edges of the flowers. Stamp the leaves and cut out as well. Run the flower petals through the Sizzix and the Floral Basics Shaping Mold then continue shaping using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Hot glue the petals together and then add the Crystal Clear to the edges; set aside to dry. Stamp the leaves with Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink, color with Bamboo Leaves as well and shape.

Decide on the placement of the flowers and leaves and glue them down. Once everything is dry, the card is finished.

For more tips on creating with the foam paper & stamens, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/Oma6ctVmUD0.

Instructions: To see larger views of this project, click here. Cover your box using the Camelia Carnation collection. To cover the top, it measures 5.25 x 3.75" and your sides will be 5.25 x 1". Once complete, diecut the large eyelet oval from silver foil paper, which will be the backdrop. Next, diecut from white cardstock, the large oval basic that is one size smaller than the eyelet oval. Finish it off by diecutting a piece of designer paper with a smaller oval from the Eyelet Oval & Basics small set.

Now diecut the Decorative Medallion from silver foil paper and lay the finished diecut piece across the eyelet oval. Adhere all together using dries clear adhesive.

To create the flowers, stamp the Camelia Carnation flowers on Art Foam using the memento Luxe: Love Letter ink. Diecut a total of 12 with the coordinating die. Use four petals for each carnation bloom. After this is done you will color the tips of the carnation using your copic sketch: RV55. Now place each flower on your iron to mold each petal simply by twisting each petal. Glue each of the layers using the hot glue gun. When you do this, use the tool from the deluxe flower shaping kit to emboss the center, which gives it additional shape. Now take your piercing tool and pierce the center to add your stamens.

To create the leaves take Tim Holtz: Peeled Paint and stamp three sets of leaves on the green foamiran and diecut with the coordinating die. Place each leaf against your iron and twist to give it shape. Place your leaves amongst your flowers in the desired locations.

Finish the gift box by adding the "inspire" metal embellishment.

Instructions: To see more photos of this project, click here. The finished size of this project is, 4.33in x 6.29in (11cm x 16cm) Taking the McDonalds hot chip box, make a pattern by tracing around the form onto the photocopy paper with the pencil. Cutting into the box folds as you go to be able to trace the details of the folds and curves. Make also a pattern for the front matting for use later. Make a pattern for the tags; this is the size of the back of the box made a little smaller but longer. Taking the Kraft cardstock, trace the pattern onto this then cut it out. Trace all the curved folds onto the Kraft card stock using the smallest balling tool from the flower shaping tool kit. Using the score-pal for any straight folds needed. Gently bring the curved folds into the cardstock. Adhere the box together by looking to the second box to see the placement of adhering. Apply peeled paint distress ink to all the folds and edges of the Kraft cardstock box.

This box has 8 tags. They are made to different lengths so when finished the lace is seen on each tag. Once the tags are cut from Kraft card stock, find the patterned paper wanted for the tag fronts. Cut these the same size as the tags. Using the paper-distressing toll, distress all the paper edges. Taking the lace die from the Festive Holiday Doily die and the white card stock. (1x doily for two tags) The doily is cut in half in the length, saving any off cut swirls for use in decorating the front of the box. Both pieces are used. Ink the doily pieces with the broken china and peeled paint ink. Adhere the doily pieces to the top of the tag. Adhere the distressed design paper tags to the Kraft tags.

To make the scripture sentiments, use each one of the scripture texts found in the sets Words of encouragement and Words of comfort onto white cardstock. Find an oval that will fit and die cut the stamped image. For each oval sentiment, cut 4x extra from the white card stock to make oval chipboards when the layers are adhered together. Once the ovals have been adhered together, apply ink to the edges with peeled paint distress ink. Adhere to each tag, a completed oval sentiment.

To decorate the box front: Find the design paper with a blue tint that matches the project cut the front matting with the aid of the matting pattern already made. Distress the edges with the paper distressing-tool. Adhere to the front of the box with wet glue or double-sided tape. Adhere the ribbon around the top of the box. Make a full bow and adhere to the left of the box on the ribbon line. Taking the scripture based stamp with " I am complete in him" stamp this with the coffee archival ink. Find the circle that fits the sentiment and die cut. Die cut 4x extra and adhere these circles together to form chipboard. Apply peeled paint distress ink to the edges of the circle once the adhesive is dry. Adhere to the box front center.

Taking the carnation, leaf stamp, and matching dies make 3x carnations by stamping with the archival coffee ink then die cutting. Each carnation has 5x petal layers, 7x leaves. Bring shape to the carnations using the mold as seen in the video above in the instructions. Stamp three carnation buds from the Fanciful Carnations stamp and matching die sets. Bring color to the leaves and buds using the Peeled paint ink for the leaves and Victorian velvet ink for the carnations.

Taking the saved off cuts from the lace doilies, trim away any unwanted details to make a swirl. Arrange and adhere the carnations, leaves and swirls as a cluster, between the circle and the right foot of the box.

For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/FSdPL7nXvQE.

Instructions: See the inside of this easel card here. Card size folded: 5 3/4 X 4 1/2. Start with white card stock 9" X 11 1/2" and make score lines along short side at 2 1/4" from both ends, all the way down card stock, turn so long side is up and score at 5 3/4" now cut away top 2 corner pieces (see template) This will leave you with a full gate fold bottom half and just a 4 1/2" X 5 3/4" section on top. At this point score just the top section again at 2 7/8" (half way to center score line). Now you have the bottom gatefold and top easel fold. Fold on all score lines and use a bone folder to make a good crease. Cut another piece of white card stock to make the front part of the easel (as usual for easel cards), 5 3/4" X 4 1/2". This is the panel that you will decorate.

Decorate the easel card front with decorative paper from the Camelia Carnation paper (the bridge scene was used here). Stamp and die cut the Bride and Groom and place at the bridge. Add the Festive Holiday Die at the top and the Sweetheart Border at the bottom. Now glue the panel to the easel (The bottom of the panel to the 2 7/8" top portion).

I used another piece of the same paper and decorated the inside flaps and base with the scene. I cut 2 more Sweetheart Borders, 1 for each flap and then I stamped the sentiment on white and die cut it with the Ovals then matted with the large ovals. I die cut a piece of Fun Foam to pop up my sentiment so that it could be used as a "catch" for the easel front to set against, see photo.

Now for the front of the gate flaps, I cut 2 large Sweetheart Borders (there are 2 borders dies in that set) from pink and cut it down to fit (it is perfect at the inner straight edge of that border) and then glued them to the front of my "gate" flaps. Wrap ribbon around card to hold closed tying at the side.

Stamp and die cut the large floral heart from Classic Wedding Roses Stamp and die sets, color with Copic Markers RVOO, RVO2, YG03, YG17, YG63. Do just basic base color on the flowers as they will be covered with 3-D flowers (I cut another heart from acetate to strengthen as this will only be glued on one side and it is delicate). Glue half if the heart to just one side of your card, over ribbon (this will also keep ribbon in place when card is opened by recipient). Now stamp, die cut and sponge Carnations with Rose Bud and Angel Pink Memento Inks. Use the flower Mold and then use fingers to give a deeper pleat to petals (flower mold will start them by breaking down paper fibers for you). Glue flowers together making small, medium and large flowers for the heart. Sponge on dries clear glue and sprinkle with Crystal Clear then glue to heart wreath. Use glue on baby's breath and put white Flower Soft on that part. Put pink Prills on the rose buds.

Stamp Image in black ink and use the pencils to color. Blend with the mineral spirits. Cut out the image using the oval die and then cut out a scalloped over using a coordinating piece of the paper collection. Glue the two ovals together and set aside to dry. When dry use the dimensional tape to adhere to the card front.

Cut a length of seam binding and spray it with water. Lay down some color on my desk pad and spritz the color with water. Drag the seam binding through the color and scrunch and leave to dry. Once dry tie a bow and use Scor-Tape and glue to adhere to the card front.

Instructions: Start by cutting the card found here out of white card stock with designer paper from the Camelia Carnation Paper Collection.

The Carnation flowers were stamped on white card stock using Versamark and heat embossed with Tea Rose embossing powder and die cut with the matching dies before distressing with Tea Rose ink and shaping with the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold and the flower shaping tools. The small single petal carnation flowers were made the same way but finished in the center with Copper Micro Beads.

The Fanciful Carnation Cling Stamp Set was stamped on white card stock using Tuxedo Black and die cut using the matching die before coloring with a combination of Tea Rose and Bamboo Leaves inks.

Finish by layering on a few die cuts from the Eyelet Hearts Die cut with a combination of peach and light peach card stock and a butterfly from the Butterfly Medley Cling Stamp Set.

The butterfly was stamped on white card stock using Tuxedo Black and die cut using the matching die before coloring with a Dove blender pan and a combination of Tea Rose and Bamboo Leaves inks.

Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Using Santa's Sweets SVG file, cut the house with an electronic die cutter. The svg file can be found here. The step by step instructions are included and very straight forward. Use the Camelia Carnation Designer Paper for the trim and panels. The candy cane embellishments on the corners of the house were cut on white cardstock and the candy cane coloring was applied with Copic alcohol ink markers - (R20, R22, R24, R27).

Apply texture or molding paste to the roof and sides of the house. Sprinkle with Crystal Clear Glitter while the texture paste is still wet. Allow to air dry.

Cut the poinsettias and holly using the Poinsettia and Holly Cluster stamp set. Sponge the poinsettias with Lipstick Red ColorBox Ink and the Holly with Olive Grove Ink. The tips of the Stack and Store Daubers are pointed and work well with the small flowers. Lightly mist the petals and shape with the Poinsettia and Holly Cluster mold. Additional shaping can be done with the Deluxe Flower Shaping tool, if desired. Yellow prills were adhered to the centers with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive. Adhere to the reindeer house.

The candy cane reindeer were created with pipe stems, easy glue eyes and little red pom poms. A glue gun works best but be careful of your fingers! The flower rhinestone was adhered to the front of the door with Dries Clear Adhesive.

I ordered the Small Camillia Carnation stamp and die last night and will arrive on Dec. 26. I also ordered the 3D Basic Floral Mold. With all these beautiful ideas I can start planning for my Valentine Day cards. I love all the HFC products I have bought. It brings my card making to a second level. Keep up the good work.
