Happy Saturday! Yay it's the weekend, do you have some crafty plans for this weekend? Why not incorporate these beautiful flowers into your projects this weekend. Ewelina has a EZ step by step tutorial for you to make flowers with the Art Foam Paper! Are you a crafter who has bought some of this paper and haven't used it yet? Then why not get it out, dust it off and have some crafty fun with us and lets create something beautiful together.

Our Crafters say:

"I just received my foam order and want to tell you how wonderful your customer service is. I order from you at 11 am (my time - 2 pm your time) on Tuesday. My order was shipped from Goshen, IN and I received it in Chehalis, WA on Thursday. Unbelievable!! Now, on to learning how to make the flowers. I am happy customer." - Kate Dimayo

"Absolutely love all of the Heartfelt Creations products. Beautiful and easy to use as well as a wonderful company with exceptional customer Service." - Pattie Abott Hurd

Let's get crafting!

To make the flowers directions:

Step 1: Stamp the Large Sweet Peony Cling Stamp Set on foam paper with Staz On Teal Blue ink and cut using the coordinating dies. 

Step 2: Color with your favorite colors amd medium. Ewelina has used Gallery soft oil pastels 241, 224 on hers.

TOP TIP: Choose darker/stronger brighter colours for using with the foam they give better results than lighter shades.

Step 3: Using the heat gun, heat the flower watching the magic happen until the flowers curls upwards. When the flowers starts to shrink move them onto the Molding Mat and press in the middle using a shaping tool

TOP TIP: Use a metal tool to hold the flower in place while heating to prevent the flower moving around.

Step 4: Adhere the Crystal Ultrafine Glitter to your flowers with the Dries Clear Adhesive and when dry adhere two or three flowers together, offsetting each layer as you adhere it. Pull through a stamen for the flower centre using the piercing tool from the flower shaping kit.

Step 5: Stamp the leaves using Classic Rose Vines Cling Stamp Set on white card with a StazOn Ink Pad - Olive Green, cut out with the coordinating die, shade using the same ink and shape.

Have fun making your flowers, there are so many uses for them! Don't they look amazing as a piece of home decor in this photo above?


 Ewelina made this beautiful card with her flowers, let's continue on with the next part of the tutorial so you can make it too.

Step 1: Create a 6 x 6" card base using white card.

Step 2: Cut a piece of paper from the Butterfly Dreams Paper Collection 5 3/4 " x 5 3/4 " and adhere to the card base using Dries Clear Adhesive. 

Step 3: Cut the Fleur Border Basics Die from white cardstock twice to create a beautiful shape.

Step 4: Line up another piece of the same patterned paper from the Butterfly Dreams Paper Collection with the plain edged die from the Fleur Border Basics Die set and die cut. Do the same with the other side and adhere to the fancy borders with dries clear adhesive. Trim to fit the card and adhere to the card base using 3D foam dots for dimension. 

Step 5: Adhere your flowers, leaves and add Assorted Bead Stamens-Medium to decorate using a hot glue gun.

I have 2 friends in long term rehabs for surgeries. Great idea to take to them and they will be beautiful the whole time they are there. Can't wait to receive my art form paper. LOVE using your products. AND I am so excited when people tell me how wonderful my cards are. Some keep them out all the time. How exciting is that?
