Hi Friend,
How is your week going? Can you believe that January is flying by so quickly?

Tell me, did your New Year's resolutions include making sure you take some time out of your busy schedule to create and craft more regularly this year? If yes, you are in the right spot! The creativity showcased on the blog today from the fabulous designers and artists, will get you jump started and inspired to create your next masterpiece!

"Heartfelt Creations is a favorite of mine. The paper collections are gorgeous, the stamps and dies are top quality, and the videos and live demos on how to use the products are so motivating. I never imagined I could make paper flowers as beautifully as I do...it's all thanks to HC! I am already planning my next craft convention so I can take more HC classes to learn new things and better my technique." -Jan T

"Love your product. I love the quality of the products and the versatility. My cards are gorgeous thanks to your beautiful designs!" -Kirsten L

"I love how I can stamp a whole set of flowers at once and cut out many at the same time. I LOVE the new molds. I made the mini poinsettias right away and they were a big hit. I have Rheumatoid arthritis and weak hands so the molds really cut my time in making beautifully shaped flowers.Thanks!" -Joyce E   

Do you feel stuck in a creative rut and use the same flower shaping technique over and over, or maybe your flowers look nothing like the ones you see online. Join us for the next online class and maximize the versatility with your carnations and learn 8 different and unique ways to shape and create ruffled carnations.

Instructions: Bendi card size: 6 x 6 1/2". Cut white card stock 6 x 5 1/2 " and cut decorative paper 6 x 5 1/2" to cover (die cut and glue Regal Border from Lavender cardstock and glue to top before adding paper so that it is sandwiched between). Cut two side panels front and back (4 pieces) 6 x 5" and use curved border from Fleur Basics to cut the tops. Cut a Fleur Border from lavender card stock for both sides. Sandwich border between two layers for both sides. Score 1/2 " from edge on both sides (along tallest side on both) for tabs to glue to back of card. Draw a 1/4 " line on the short end of both and make a tab on both. On center panel, cut a slit to coincide with left flap tab, 4 1/2 " from left side. On left flap, make a slit to coincide with right flap tab, 2 1/2" from left edge. Glue flaps to center in the back using the 1/2" scored tabs you made on each long end.

I used decorative paper with a scene on the inside of each flap so I did not add anything else this time. For the center and outside of flaps I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black, die cut and colored cottage, cottage accents, dogwood, wildwood florals, blossoms, fairy, bird in branch, birds, birdbath, and wheel barrel. Emboss cottage with bricks and rub Worn Lipstick over the embossing. Add windows and door and glue to center of card. Use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to lightly shape all the elements and add dogwood to each side of center and some flowers at the bottom (avoiding slit). Add Prills to center of flowers, glue Fun Flock to round blossoms. Glue bird to dogwood branch at top right.

For left flap, glue a piece of leftover dogwood to left side, glue wheel barrel to right side and pop up fairy with a bird in her hand to left over part of dogwood. For right flap, glue birdbath with bird to center area and pop up bird in branch to right top. (Always avoid slits for ease of opening and closing Bendi Card.). Glue ultrafine glitter to wings of fairy.

For more tips on creating with the layered card & shadowboxes, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/DrMIKI-XTmI.

Instructions: To see more photos of this project, click here. Firstly, construct 2 shadow boxes. Choose pattern papers as shown and paste them into the box. In the left side of the shadow box, the chair is fussy cut and then layered in the same place using foam tapes. Cover the front of the shadow box. For cutting the window use Cut Mat and Create 2A Die. Now, close the shadow boxes using 1/2" strip on all the four sides. Cut a white die cut frame from Grand Labels One from purple pattern paper and one from white cardstock. Stack both the die cuts together. Prepare 2 pieces of the same kind and adhere them on the front of the shadow box.

To make the cover of the Project, Cut 2 pieces of white cardstock measuring 6 1/2" by 7 3/4". Score at 1 1/4" on the longer side. Glue the scored 1 1/4" panel of the first piece to the 1 1/4" scored piece of the second piece. This will form the front, back, and spine of the project. Now Choose the pattern papers for the front, back and inside panels. Refer to the pictures.

Once the front cover is covered with patterned paper, choose another one from the same collection to create the top fancy panel. It should measure 5" by 6". Chop all the four corners using corner punch and layer it on the right side of the front cover, keeping a ribbon underneath to create the closure of the project. On the left side glue a fancy lace border from the Sweet Heart Borders die set. Fussy cut the focal image from patterned paper and layer it on the front top panel. Decorate the front using flowers from Wildwood cottage Collection, a pair of painted boots, painted festive gate and a fussy cut puppy. Add sentiment as shown and highlight with glitters.

For the inner panels, cut 2 solid pieces from Grand labels one and glue them on either side of both panels. Adhere the shadow boxes using tacky glue. Stamp various foliage images from Rain Boots and Blossoms Cling Stamp Set with Library Green archival ink, cut them using its coordinating die, and color them using Leaf green archival and zig markers. Shape them using Deluxe flower shaping kit. Also, stamp and cut Festive Gate from Celebrate the season Collection and paint it using Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The umbrella image and the fairy image is stamped with black archival and cut using their coordinating dies. Both the images are painted using Faber Castell Pencil Colours.

For flowers, stamp and cut floral images from Wildwood Floral stamp and die set and paint them using Deep Grape Color Box ink. Color the center with Leaf Green. Shape the flowers using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and add Rock Candy Stamens. Also, stamp various leafy images from the Singing in the Rain Collection and paint them using Broken China, Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge and Raspberry Pink. Shape them using flower shaping kit and add prills using an adhesive that dries clear.

Once all the elements for shadow boxes are ready, decorate them by layering the images using foam dots and creating small flower bouquets. Assemble all the elements as shown and complete the center panels.

For the back panel, Fussy cut the image from the pattern paper and create a pocket by gluing 3 sides. Add jute cord to the tags and add them to the pocket. Glue a ribbon underneath the pocket to create a closure for the project.

Instructions: (To view a larger photo of this project, click here.) Every night when I go to bed, I take my earrings and wedding ring off and I put them in a special dish in my bedroom. I created this Umbrella Jewelry Keepsake Holder for just that purpose, a pretty place to place the items I love each night. Measure the cork coaster and cut a piece of the blue patterned paper that is slightly smaller. Round the corners and adhere to the cork coaster using Extreme Double Sided Tape. Paint the mini bucket, thread spool and wood spindle with white paint. Let dry. Adhere the thread spool and spindle together and adhere to the back of the cork coaster base. Adhere the mini frame with cork inside to the spindle. Adhere the bucket in front of the mini frame onto the base. Add the silk ribbon bow around the spindle.

From one of the stamped images of the birds and umbrella, cut off just the top of the umbrella, and the birds. I like to add color to all layers of a layered piece.

I took a small cluster of flowers that I cut off earlier and added them to the top of the umbrella, again using 3D foam squares. I added the birds, again using 3D foam squares on top of the original image. Adhere the layered image to the middle of the mini frame using 3D foam, this might take a few layers of foam to bring it above the frame edge.

I am a newbie to card making and therefore only have a small collection of dies, stamps and so forth to make cards with. At this time I prefer the not so dimensional cards which are easier to mail in an envelope. I can see how to use what I do have to make cards like those shown. I love the paper collections. Both sides of the papers are beautiful which makes it difficult to cut into them! I like the fancy cards shown but right now am more inspired by the "not so fancy and complicated" ones, the ones that don't use so many different dies, stamps and so on that I don't have, ....yet. Thanks for all the inspiration!
