Heartfelt Creations Black Friday New Release Blog Hop

 Welcome Heartfelt Creations Fans!!You are going to love Heartfelt Creations new Gateway Dies! They are so versatile. One die set will give you many different looks. Imagine having all of the sets and be able to mix and match! The designs would be endless!! This is a chance to win a 25.00  Gift Certificate to the Heartfelt Creations online store. 

 I had so much fun creating this trifold card. I used the Ornate Flourish Gateway Die HCD2-7326 for my card. The card base makes it easy for you to just die cut your papers, and adhere to the base. 

The Wild Rose Paper Collection is gorgeous! I used it for my card. There is one page that has flowers and leaves on it. All I had to do was use both the Small Wild Rose Die and the Large Small Wild Rose Die to cut them out. Then I spritzed them slightly with water, and placed them in Large 3D Wild Rose Shaping Mold for the leaves, and the Small Wild Rose Shaping Mold for the flowers. If you wanted, you could also use the stamps on the flowers and leaves. I chose not to stamp them to bring out the beauty in the ornate background of the card. I added some mixed  Prills to the centers. I also added Crystal Clear to both the flowers and the leaves for beautiful sparkle. 

I cut out one if the sentiments from the  paper pack, and matted it on another piece of paper, then placed a small piece of chipboard under it. I adhered it to the front of the card, and created a little silk ribbon bow, and placed it under the sentiment. I added a smaller cluster of flowers on the bottom corner of the card. 

The base is a trifold card. I am going to finish the card on the inside after I receive my new Elegant Gateway Cling Stamp Set. It pairs perfectly with all of the dies. 

Thank you for hopping with us on  this awesome Black Friday!! Be sure to finish the hop, and leave a comment on all of the designers blogs, for a chance to win a 25.00 Gift Certificate from Heartfelt Creations.

Woodland Fairy created for 49 and Market Using Vintage Remnants

 Hello Lovelies. This week I have a layout created from a collection that is a little older. While eagerly waiting on the new collections, (Have you seen the brand new Remnants 12x12 Mini Collection???) I checked my stash for something that screamed rustic and rusty. No9 paper from the Vintage Remnants Collection was perfect! I love the rusted elements in this layout so much. Once in a while I like to get down and grungy, and still add beautiful elements to my projects. I did very little color wash on the background as I didn't want to take away from the beautiful details and color on this paper design. I flecked on a bit of black paint, and added a slight green color wash around the photos, but that was it. For stability, I adhered the background paper to a piece of 12x12 heavy chipboard. I plan to use this layout in a shadowbox  frame. 

I simply love the laser cuts that are included in the mini collections. I used the leaves from the Bold and Beautiful collection. I love vines, and these are gorgeous! I did tear one of them apart to tuck under the floral clusters. The enchanted florals are beautiful! They compliment the colors in the paper. I die cut the frame for the photo, and saved the inner piece of the frame to use as a base and guide for the photo. 

I die cut the frames from older dies I have, and the 2 dies that I used are some of my favorites. I use them quite often. This time I die cut corrugated cardboard, then die cut them again using Paper No10 and adhered it to the die cut cardboard.  I heat embossed the top die frame using 3 different embossing powders to match the rust in the paper, then adhered it to the bottom die cut frame. They came out perfect! I added moss and some twigs that were growing moss on them. I find them on the ground, in my yard, on the edge of the woods. I used the dragonflies Laser Cuts from the Serendipitous collection and inked them a bit with green and brown ink. I framed my little woodland fairy perfectly. 

I think the neutral colors of the flowers plays up beautifully in my woodland theme. Tucking in a few pieces of moss helps to bring out the beauty. 

And just another closeup of the frames that I have created for my wee woodland fairy. 

Thank you for spending the time here today. I hope you are inspired, and I hope that you take a walk in nature, and find the little natural things to add to your next project. xoxo

49 and Market "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlotte"

Hello Friends. Today I am here to inspire you with a layout created with Vintage Artistry Shore collection, featuring laser cuts from the vintage Artistry Coral collection. I started the background by adhering the bonus  12x12 piece of paper (The back of the cover of the collection pack) from the shore collection to a piece of corrugated cardboard. Then I adhered a slightly smaller piece of paper (Tritons Shell) to another piece of corrugated paper and adhered it to the larger one. This set my base for decorating. I added the fabulous Roughly Sewn rub-ons in opposite corners, and Washi Tape in the lower right hand corner. 

The photo was matted on top of a layered cluster that I created using elements from the Shore Ephemera pack. I did some machine sewing on a couple of the pieces and distressed the edges. I tucked in some  leaves that I die cut from papers in the 6x6 paper pack. I tucked in the flowers, wire curls, and distressed berries around the layered ephemera.  The laser cut butterflies are from the Vintage Artistry Coral paper pack. The paper twine wreath was used under a die cut tag, and I adhered the photo to the tag and placed the file folder on the top of the photo. I used a couple of strands of jute through the hole in  the tag. I did some stamping around the edges of the cluster.

The cluster on the opposite side was also created by layering pieces from the Ephemera Stack. I die cut some lacey butterflies and leaves using papers from the Shore 6x6 paper stack. I just stacked and added layers using chipboard underneath for height and depth. Once all of my elements were in place, I did some stamping and added Wishing Bubbles and Art Stones to finish the layout.

Just a closeup of my cutie on the day we were carving her pumpkin. 

I hope that you are inspired to create your own layered layout. It is always fun for me to keep stacking, then enjoy seeing the end result.
