Our Crafter's Say:
"What can I say..I love everything about Heartfelt Creations!! When I give a Heartfelt Creation card to someone, they just uh and ah over them. You make me look like I'm a professional! I love the videos too!" - Beverly V
"I have encountered what seems to me a magical world of creativity and I'm simply in love I hope to learn from all of you thanks for the opportunity." - Maria Alvarez
Let's get crafting!
Step 1: Using a damp sponge apply the Pink Flambe mousse to completely cover one sheet of white card. Work quickly and smoothly using small circles to blend the mousse. The mousse will form lines and shading as you apply. Further areas of colour can be added to give more depth or create a speckled effect by dabbing thicker amounts of mousse onto the card.
TOP TIP: By spritizing water on your sponge you can create a lighter, thinner application too!
Step 2: From the pink flambe cardstock cut 1 x 4.5" square and 1 x 3" x 3.75". Die cut the 3rd largest circle from the Circle dies and the lacy edge from the Diamonds and Lace Die.
Step 3: Stamp the Gardens Edge Coneflower plus 2 flower heads and 2 of the Backyard Blossom filler flowers in grey granite ink onto the leftover coloured card. Cover the stamped images in clear embossing powder, remove the excess and heat emboss. Die cut all the images from the card using the coordinating dies.
Step 4: Shape the coneflower using the flower shaping tools.
Step 5: Layer the 2 additional flower heads onto the main flower, glue the head of the flower - not the petals. Cover the head of the flower in glue and sprinkle over the silver lining prills, remove excess and allow to dry.
Step 6: Glue the 4.5" square pink flambe card to a 5" square card base.
Step 7: Cut a 3.75 square piece of white card. Stamp the sentiment approximately 1" from the bottom of the card using memento ink, cover in clear embossing powder, remove excess and heat to set. Mount the white sentiment card onto the base card using foam pads and glue the coneflower into position using dries clear glue.
Step 8: On a piece of 4.75" x 3.75" white card, stamp the sentiment in black memento ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder as with the previous card - approximately 1.5" from the bottom of the card. Glue the lacy border into place under the sentiment, and mount the card onto a 4" x 5" card base using foam pads.
Step 9: Cut the diecut filler flowers into 4 separate pieces.
Step 10: Tie the filler flowers with linen thread and position onto the card base using hot glue.
Step 11: Cut a 5" square piece of white card. Diecut the 4th size circle centrally in the white card approximately .75" from the top of the card.
Step 12: Stamp the Coneflowers in gray granite onto the pink flambe circle and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Glue the circle onto the base card so that it lines up to show through the aperture.
Step 13: Score 3 little lines of different lengths approximately .75" at the bottom of the aperture card on both sides. Leave a gap for the sentiment to be added, then stamp and heat emboss "Remembering with you" between the raised score lines and mount the card to the base card using foam pads.
Step 14: Stamp the Heartfelt Sympathy sentiment onto vellum using black memento ink, cover with clear embossing powder, remove excess and heat to set. Tear into an uneven sentiment strip approximately 1" wide x 4.5" in length.
Step 15: Stamp the coneflower frame in gray granite ink and emboss, as before, with clear embossing powder. Die cut.
Top Tip: When stamping the larger stamps with thin ends, place on the stamping block and ensure they sitting correctly by placing the die on top of them and nudging the stamp to fit the die.
Step 16: Wrap the vellum sentiment around the 3" x 3.75" piece of pink flambe card and glue into place at the back. Glue the coneflowers onto the card to frame the edge of the pink flambe card and mount the sentiment topper to a 5.5" x 6.25" white card base using foam pads.
Step 17: Cut a piece of white card approximately 3.75" x 5.75" and stamp the sentiment in the centre of the card using black memento ink. Cover in clear embossing powder, remove excess and heat to set. Then mask off the centre of the card using a glass mat grid.
Step 18: Swirl pink flambe mousse onto the top and bottom of the white card. When dry, stamp the filler flowers onto the pink areas using gray granite ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Carefully remove the low tac tape from the centre of the card and adhere the card to a 6" x 4" white card base.
Step 19: Stamp a single backyard blossom and 2 flower heads in gray granite onto white card and die cut. Shape and create the flower in the same way as in the first card and add transparent glitter to some of the foliage on the stem of the flower and glue the Coneflower into position using wet glue.
