Heartfelt Creations- Mulit Step Card...Campfire Fun

Good morning!
Yes, I do believe it is feeling a bit like fall this morning.
There is a chilly crispness in the air and the leaves are starting their journey to a full display of color for the world to enjoy.
These little guys are having a nice campfire sing along with music, marshmallows, honey and hot chocolate!  What could be better!
It might be a scouting group, who knows...I think the guitar player is the scout leader and he has a bunch of kids with him for this last hoorah of summer!


I made up this step card so that I could better show the bears in a circle around the campfire.  I really like it!  I did do a pattern for you all, you will find it near the bottom of my post (for anyone interested in making a card like this).


I love this bear jamboree and just look at those toasted marshmallows...that bear has it down to a science!

This little guy would much rather have the honey his mom put in the backpack!


 This bear has a hot cuppa chocolate!
What else for a nice campfire?  I'm sure there are melty marshmallows in the cup as well, don't you think?

Instructions:  Card size is 5 X 7 Pattern for this multi-step card is below as a diagram to make it easier to follow. Start with white card stock 7 X 10" and make the first cut 1" from the bottom and 1 1/2" in from the left side cut from 1" to 6". Nest cut is 1" from bottom at 1 1/2" from first cut and going from 1" to 7", the next and final cut is from 1" to 7" at 2 1/2" from the last cut. Score the two outside sections at 5", score between cut 1 and cut 2 at 1", 2" and 6", score between cut 2 and cut 3 at 1", 2", 3", 4" and 7". Cut dark blue designer paper for each section and then cut one of the designer papers with the sunset and cut pieces to fit each section. Punch grass from green designer paper and gold designer paper. Stamp, die cut and color 4 bears, campfire, flowers, trees, rocks and grass, birds leaves and sunflowers. Space bears out so that they look like they are in a circle round the fire (this is how I came up with this pattern). Do a temporary adhesion on the bears so that you can place thing under and around. Fill in under and around with grass, flowers, and trees.  Slightly form sunflowers and leaves.  Emboss maple leaves with clear embossing pad (like Top Boss or VersaMark) and clear embossing powder.  Add Prills to the centers of the sunflowers. Add a bit of Stickles to the coneflowers and campfire.  Cut a sentiment from the designer paper and add it to the front then add one sunflower to each side of the sentiment. Add the oak and maple leaves to the tops of both outside sections. When I glued my bears on I use  foam tape at their head and shoulders.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.
I love the phase "Speak words of life" and try to do that when speaking with other people...the world has enough negativity, I don't want to add to it.  Let all build each other up and make our world a better place for us all to live!!
God loves it when we speak good and pure things even to ourselves.  Words spoken are powerful, don't take it lightly, God doesn't.

Heartfelt Creations-Tri-fold Shaped Card

Good morning!

I was watching the video that Liz Gaze had on Facebook (you can find HERE) for making the shaped cards with the Botanic Window Die so I got on the stick and made one for a color challenge at Splitcoaststampers. 
I did the tent style below.


But when I first watched the video I was wondering if I could do a Tri-Fold shaped card with this die, so of course, I had to try it.

For the base:
I took a piece of card stock 12 X 6" scored at 4" and second score at 7 3/8" then followed the instructions for the shaped card which was to let the die hang over the fold right outside the straight edge (see photo). 

Place the top plate just inside the second score line (opposite the fold)
Otherwise you will cut where you don't want to on your 3rd panel.  The machine will only cut where the top plate is.  When you are done cutting, you will unfold and finish the cut on the outside edge of the 1st panel, (only put your top plate over that outside edge).
unfold the first so that you don't make any cuts on your first panel that you do not want and refold on the second score to do your next cut placing the die on top of your second panel where it is already cut, matching cut lines, so that you can cut the third panel, make sure the top plate does not go over entire die or all your work so far will be blown. See photo below. (you will never have more than 2 layers of card stock at a time).
after cutting, unfold and finish outside edge the way you did for the first panel.
This is what you end up with (below).
Cut an extra full window out of another piece of your card stock for the front panel and glue over your front panel matching all cuts (the right side edge will hang free so it does not interfere with the fold).
For this card I used the inner die of the Botanic Window on white and the outline die on decorative paper (from the Classic Petunia Collection).  
I stamped, cut and colored all my flowers and then formed and set them aside to dry (I mist the back with water).  I stamped, cut and colored my hummers, cut the leaves from light green and formed.  I cut up the long petunias and leaves border from the Large Petunia set to use as a base for my floral arrangements and also added the leaves from the Cut Mat and Create sets. Then I added all my flowers and hummers (the hummers have a triple later of foam tape to pop them up).

Welcome to the New Release Heartfelt Creations Wednesday post!
I am always so happy you stop by to see what I have created for Heartfelt on Wednesdays!! Make sure you see the Heartfelt Creation blog post to see all the wonderful creations this week.
These little bears around the campfire make a wonderful luminary!!
What a fun release for fall.  I love the
Sunflower stamps and dies that go so well with this release as well.  
To make a night-time camp-out scene I have punched stars from my base dark blue card stock and added little white dots for smaller stars.


Each side has a different little scene.

I punched a 1" circle for my moon and added a bit of gray and then yellow ink.





I think these guys like to munch, don't you?

Cut designer paper to fit each side and cut a scalloped oval from the center of each piece and then glue paper to each panel (4).  Punch small stars between oval opening and scalloped oval paper then cover back of each panel with vellum.  Add to the stars with white paint and a small stylist making small white dots.  Cut 4 grass borders and glue to the bottom of each panel. Cut dark blue Delicate Borders for the top of each panel and glue in place.  Stamp, die cut and sponge color on 3 full sets of Classic Sunflowers, (I used Yellow, Peanuts Brittle and Potter's Clay Memento ink). Form flowers and glue together then fill centers with Express-O Prills.  Stamp, die cut and sponge small flowers from Birds and Blooms, form and glue together. Stamp, die cut and color (with Copic Markers) bears, 3 campfires, Treehouse, 2 small sunflower plants and 4 Sunflower/acorn borders. Die cut 3 or 4 flourishes from Cut Mat Create from green card stock and cut as needed or to fit under formed sunflowers. Decorate each side of the luminary with the campfires (except house side) and then bears (only one side has 2 bears) On the house side, add the 2 sunflower plants and moon (1" circle punch).  Add the sunflower/acorn border to the top of each side.  Now fill in corners with green flourishes, flowers and small bits of burlap.  Use Score tape or glue to attach panels together at 1/2" tabs.  Use a small battery operated tea light to light up luminary.

Thanks for visiting today and have a blessed day!

Heartfelt-Woodsy Tunnel Card

Good morning!

I  have to admit, this Woodsy Wonderland release is one of my favorites.
How could it not be when I live in the mountains of the Sierra National Forest.  This is like my backyard (including the skunks!).


I love these curved borders, they work wonderfully as toppers.


I chose different papers for each page.


This one is bright and happy and look at those cardinals, I love cardinals!


This last page I reserved for journaling and/or writing a note to the recipient.


Heartfelt Creations-Woodsy Tunnel card

Products:

Instructions: Other Products: Flower Soft, 3M Foam Tape, Fun Foam-black

Instructions: Put the Kraft Layered Circle Card together and then cut designer paper for each page inside and out.  Die cut circles in the center of each sheet using the new Circle Basic dies (both large and small sets) to fit each circle on the layered circle card.  Pick coordinating designer paper for each page and die cut circle frames for each opening and also a border for the top of each page.  Since this is a masculine card I used the plaids, browns and dark greens with small print designs for this part.  Stamp, die cut and color all Woodsy pieces (several of the Landscape and Wonderland sets).  I used a combination of sponging with Memento dye inks (Bamboo eaves, New Sprout) and Copic Markers (E53, E33, E35, E97, E11, E42, E43, E44,R21, R24, R29,W01, W03, W05, C02, C03, C05, BOO, BO2, Y11, Y15, Y35, Y38, YG03, YG23, YG17, RV10, RV02, BV000, BV01, V01, V12, V15) Stamp, die cut and sponge color on Dogwood pieces (Memento: Grape Jelly, Lulu Lavender, Angel Pink, Rose Bud, Dandelion).  Form all flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit (See Emma Lou's video for more instruction on flower shaping).  Glue each cut designer paper to each page front and back matching edges and circles then glue each border and coordinating circle frame to each page. Tear a strip of dark green "ground" for the bottom of each page (except back two pages) and sponge edges with Bamboo Leaves Memento then glue in place.  Fill pages with little animals and trees.  I purposely went beyond the inner circles to give more dimension to my tunnel.  I sometimes used to paper to dictate where to place certain animals.  I finished the bottom of each page (the ground) with Flower Soft and different colors of Prills like flowers.  The tops of all pages are decorated with the multi-colored Dogwood and leaves. Special instruction for the back two pages: the next to last page has a picture of a deer (from designer paper) glued to the last, small circle before gluing the designer paper over the page (like a sandwich). This makes the last two pages solid for adding pockets and journaling tags or more small cards.  I decorated the tops with the die cut border in blue and then die cut my pockets from the same blue designer paper.  I cut tags from the designer paper and added fiber to 1 and raise the middle square section of the other with black Fun Foam for dimension.  The pages are finished with Dogwood on top and a small Dogwood flower on the Card/tag. 
See all the cards for this week HERE.

Good morning!
We have exciting news for today...a special release!
Along with these new fantastic tunnel cards and shadow box cards 
are sets of wonderful Oval dies and Circle dies to match.
They are just what we've needed and now they are here for all of us to play with!
There are 2 sets of each the circles and the ovals so that you can make really nice layers.
My card features the Oval Tunnel Card, The Winter's Eve Collection and the Festive Holly Collection.

This top page is actually an oval opening as well but the window stamp and die set covers it.
I fussy cut the angel girl and the tree so that I could use them on separate pages.


For this little book card I covered the last, smallest oval with my image so that I could use the last page as a place for tags and a personal message from me.

Stamp and die cut the window from white card stock, die cut Window Box Elements (decorative pieces) and cut the larger decorative piece in half lengthwise (these will be the shutters). Glue window, shutters and topper onto the front cover. Stamp, die cut and color holly and cardinal (several pieces are used throughout), form slightly then add the Crystal Clear glitter. Stamp, die cut and color the sled, add some bakers twine as a pull rope. Pop the sled up against the "wall" next to the window. Add the holly and cardinal to the left side of the cover.  On the inside, glue the window to the opening, add a holly garland and double pocket at the bottom.  Page 2, cut the oval from designer paper and glue to page.  Add a holly garland and the little girl (she is looking at the tree!) add another double pocket at the bottom and stamp "Twas the night before Christmas", die cut with Spellbinders A2 Rectangles. The back of the 2nd page is just designer paper and Poinsettias (stamp, die cut and sponge poinsettias with Angle Pink then form flowers and add Prills). The third page has the Christmas tree in the oval and poinsettias also a little sentiment "ticket". The back of page 3 has one of the Regal borders and some holly.  Page 4 has one of the Regal borders and more holly, also the fireplace glued to the oval opening.  The back of page 4 has a double Blossom Corner and the last page has a single Blossom corner. Both the double and single are pockets.  Cut tags from designer paper.  Add a poinsettia to the top right.  The back cover has another piece of ribbon glued between layers.  Tie little "book" closed.

Thanks for visiting!

Heartfelt Creations- Window Shadow Box Card

Good morning!
We have a cute window scene today with lace curtains and everything!
I've used a scoreboard to create the wainscot half wall.
The pink poinsettias have some glass beads for center (I dyed clear glass beads with a Copic refill).
My water wheel scene inside (the box) is filled with sparkly glitter! 
In the winter at our house when it snows we turn on the outside lights, just sit and watch the flakes fall.  Sometimes the flakes are huge and I wonder how they still fall so slowly and lightly like feathers floating in the air! But small flakes or large, in the morning the scene looks like what you see in the little window I've made with the sparkle and everything (well, no water wheel).
I so absolutely love the paper in this release!  It has such pretty colors and designs. Even though there is pink in this paper there is also red and green so it goes so well with the Festive Holly release as well!


I die cut a deer from the Woodsy Wonderland paper to put inside my shadow box part of the card (hard to see it in this photo).

Heartfelt- Winter's Window Box

Good morning!
Isn't this fireplace scene so cozy?  I love it and today we are peeking in on this family's Christmas decorated room through their beautiful window with a candle on the seal and a pretty window box outside with lovely pink poinsettias.

Instructions: Card size is 5" X 7". I cut 2 pieces of 5 X 7 white linen card stock for the base and and extra piece 5 X 2 folded in half to make a hinge (since I did not have 14 X 5 to make the base one piece).  Glue front and back to the cut out hinge (hinge is cut with die hanging over the fold so that it will not cut apart).  Cut inside and outside designer paper with Labels 4 and then use the small die of the 5 x 7 Elegant labels 4 just for the inside.  Layer the labels 4 and elegant labels 4 together for the inside and glue to the inside.  Stamp, and die cut the fireplace with the Cut and Mat 1B, color then sponge edges with Brilliance Orchid and glue to inside up high enough to add the sentiment using another Spellbinder die to cut.  Next start working on the front.  Glue cut designer paper to front, cut window opening out of card front then stamp, die cut and color the window frame, window candle, poinsettias, and window box fillers. Glue candle to the inside of window cut out. Die cut Raindrops on Roses medallion, window box (all parts) and Window Box Elements and put the window box together adding the box trim and enough of the Raindrops on Roses medallion to reach the bottom of the box.  Glue fillers in (cutting and arranging as necessary to let candle show through window). Add formed poinsettias filled with gold Prills to the front of the box and paint on some snow paste then glitter.  Finish with rhinestones.

Heartfelt- Winter's Eve - Merry Christmas!


Good morning!
Winter's Eve New Release
Don't you just love these wonderful colors!  Such beautiful papers in this collection and they also coordinate with the Festive Holly Collection, yippee!

So this card is basically a gate fold card made fancy with Heartfelt's beautiful Decorative Medallion die from the Wedding Collection...I love how you can mix and match several Heartfelt collections together!  This card was inspired by Emma Lou's video where she shows how to make these wonderful gate "doors".  I did mine a bit wrong (all one piece) but it turned out well anyway!

I used the other die in the Decorative Medallion die set to cover the open oval on the inside.  I love the look of the dark red with the crisp white.

Use the solid backing part of the die on two pieces of pink designer paper as lining for the Decorative flaps created.  Cut another piece of pink designer paper for the inside 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 section.  Cut the paper a bit smaller to accommodate the scores and to leave a small white border top and bottom.  Cut a piece of white linen 5 X 5 and emboss it with an embossing folder, now layer these to the inside and cut an oval from dark red card stock and cut two Decorative Medallions (the semi-circle looking one)to layer on top of the red oval.
