Hi everyone, I hope you are having an awesome day so far!  Thanks for popping by again for another round of crafty inspiration for Heartfelt Creations!

I absolutely love Christmas time and I was having so much fun with the new  “Festive Christmas Collection” and was so inspired that I just had to create a fun little vintage Christmas card (Yes, believe it or not, it’s an actual card!)

Products Used:

HCPC 3415 – Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set
HCPC 3551 – Holly Berry PreCut Set
HCPC 3622 – O Little Town PreCut Set
HCPC 3625 – Festive Notes PreCut Set
HCD 738 – Ornamental Add On Die
HCDP1246 – Festive Christmas Collection
Layered Poinsettia Shapeabilities
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear
Spellbinders Tool N’ One
Bright Ideas Prills

Project Instructions:

Other products: 5 x 7 Mystical Embrace, Off-White Card Stock, Core Essentials Neutrals Paper, Distressed Inks, Shimmer Spray, VersaMark, Antique Gold Embossing powder, Sheer Shimmer Spritz Sparkle, pearls from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by taking a piece of Core Essentials Neutrals Paper 11″ x 7 1/2″ and score it in the middle so you have a card 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″.  Next using a rasp of another tool, rough up the edges of the base and then add a layer of paper from the Festive Christmas Collection.  Using the 5 x 7 Mystical Embrace, die cut and sand the Core Essentials Neutrals Paper for that perfect Vintage look and attach it to your card with another piece of the same paper from the Festive Christmas Collection in the center.  To make the scroll, first stamp the Festive Notes PreCut Set 2 times on top of each other and then cut a strip of paper 10 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ for your scroll.  I slightly curved in the to center of each side to give that flared look at the top and bottom.  Once you have everything cutout for the scroll, take a skewer and roll both ends to the length that you want.  Finally decorate and add your favorite festive Poinsettia for the finishing touch!

Project Instructions:

Other products: Green Card Stock, Distressed Inks, Shimmer Spray, Ribbon and Bling from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by making a swing card based on this tutorial.  Instead of making just 1 swing panel, I made 3 – 1 1/2″ square panels evenly spaced.  To make the decorative panels make another copy of the card as a template, cut the pieces apart, trace them out and make 1/4″ smaller all around.  Finally decorate and add your favorite festive Poinsettia for the finishing touch!

I hope to see you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!

Star Gift Box

Star Gift Box

Hi everyone and welcome to some Wednesday inspiration for Heartfelt Creations!

This week Heartfelt Creations has released the gorgeous new “Festive Christmas Collection” and I want to share with you a fun little gift box I made featuring some of this lovely collection.

I used the Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set for the poinsettia and the Arianna Lace Doily in behind.

Products Used:

HCPC 3415 – Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set
HCPC 3621 – Dove of Peace PreCut Set
HCD 747 – Arianna Lace Die
HCD 751 – Cut, Mat, Create Set 2A
HCDP1 246 – Festive Christmas Collection
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
Layered Poinsettia Shapeabilities
Nobel Rectangle

Project Instructions:

Other products: White Card Stock, Red Card Stock, Distressed Inks, Glitter Ritz, Ribbon from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by cutting 2 stars 6″ square out of White card stock, 2 more 5 1/2″ square out of Red card stock and 2 more 5″ square out of paper from the Festive Christmas Collection and glue them together.  Next to make the box, take a strip of card stock 12″ x 4″ and score 1/2″ on each long side and every 2″ to make the folds.  Make small relief cuts on the long 1/2″ scor at every 2″ score line so you can bend the card stock around each point in the star and attach to the back of the stars.  Decorate with your favorite sentiment and some treats and do not forget the flower!  Since this is a Christmas project stamp, stamp, distress and die cut out some of the lovely Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set, assemble and finish it off in the center with a sparkly gem!

I hope to see  you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!
