Deck the Halls!

A quick post from me today!

The hardest and longest part of making this card was choosing my papers! lol!
Although it was pretty easy as they all come from the Winter's Eve paper pad
and are deigned to go together!!!!!

I am loving playing with pinks and blues for Christmas!

I just wanted to thank you all for your support after my FB live yesterday!
Wow just shows anything can happen!
I am pleased to say my daughter is ok and alls well.
Thank you for all your love and understanding, it wasn't quite how I planned!

Happy crafting everyone!

EZ Christmas cards & Flowers!

Christmas is getting closer! Wow it's not far now!
Have you got all your cards made? Shh I haven't but I am working on them!
Join me  LIVE over on the Heartfelt Creations Facebook page HERE
as I show you some quick and EZ ideas for your cards that you can make in 30 mins or less!
Even faster if you make all your flowers first!

The card fronts from the Paper Pad collections make
it so easy to make these quick cards!

Here is a quick tutorial showing you how I made my flowers 
with the new Poinsttia Flower shaping mold. 
WOW I love this tool! 
 Have fun! 

Step 1: Stamp the Poinsettia & Holly Cluster stamps. 
TOP TIP: Stamp them all on one sheet so they can be die cut in one pass. 
A great time saver! Plus if you have a large arcrylic block
you can stamp both the flowers at once and then th leaves at once too!

Step 2: Die cut the flowers and leaves using the Poinsettia & Holly Cluster Die.
TOP TIP: Run them all through at once as they are stamped on one sheet!
Place them into the mold, lightly spritz and then run through your die cutting machine.

Step 3: Tip the all of flowers and leaves out of the mold.

And then press the centres down with a flower shaping tool and glue two flowers
 together and place ontop of a holly leaf. 

TOP TIP: Add a dab of glue to the holly centre, place a flower on andadd another dab of glue to
the flower cenrte and then place the top flower on nd then press down in the centre. Its a time saver!

Step 4: Adhere prills to the flower centres.
You could also use stamens, if so use the piercing mat and tool from the 
Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to make a hole and add your stamen of choice.

Step 5: Using a sponge dab glue on the edges of the petals and cover with
Frosting Powder for a super effect!

WOW I made this many flowers in just two hours!
Such an EZ way to make flowers ready for your Christmas projects!

Here is what I used on these projects:

Talk about getting ahead in my cardmaking!
This is for my anniversary next year! lol in August!!!
I was so inspired by Ellen Millers card that I just had to have a go.
Here is Ellen's card below click HERE to see how she made it.

With a photo in it sure makes for a piece of home decor as well!

Winter Wonderland

I took myself in a toally different direction with this card
than where I first started from! As it developed I decided 
who was going to recieve this card and it just took off!
Lol there is lots of Crystal Clear powder on this it sure does sparkle!

Sometimes making a project that is outside of your comfort zone is
just what the crafty fairy ordered as it stretched your imagination!
Have lots of crafty fun!

I used the Winters Eve Paper pad alongside the Woodsy Wonderland and 
Snow Kissed collections on this shadowbox card!

Shadowbox card

I thought I would use up the spare poinsettias I had left on my desk!
Which in turn led to me get out the Sparkling Poinsettia papers........
Yes I fell in love all over again! lol How could I have left these papers in the box! lol!

I have used a shadowbox card on the front of a 6" x 6" card.
They give great dimension to your projects!

Have lots of crafty fun!

Merry Christmas

I've been playing with black as a backdrop to my cards!
I was inspired by my friend and teamie Gloria Stengel's projects and this is
what I came up with using the Winter's Eve collection.
I love how the black makes the pink pop!

I'm not sure my tree will look as beautiful as this one in 
the image, but we will have fun putting it up later today!
 Have a fabulous day everyone!
Happy crafting

Snowflake Gift Boxes

Today I'm sharing two quick makes with you! Two gift boxes for Christmas. 
Wouldn't these also make gorgeous name place settings for your Christmas table?

They are both made in exactly the same way the only difference
is I added a handle to one and use velcro dots on the other to seal it shut!

To make this I used the following:
