I scrap-lifted this from the Heartfelt Creations Facebook page, an on-line tutorial by Carrie Giletto. Hers included a pocket for a gift card or money – mine does not – I placed a sentiment there instead.
I made a couple of Wild Roses in light pink, and a couple of lilies in yellow, plus small white blossom tucked in here and there. This slimline die is my favorite!
I used a little flower from the Tender Moments collection to add to the heart on front, and a sentiment from Creative Expressions is tucked inside, on the middle panel.
The large “empty” area has been left blank intentionally, to allow for a more personal message.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Now get to crafting!!
Just a couple of cards to quickly share, using Heartfelt Creations Garden Lily paper Collection.
Additionally, I have utilized one of the newer slimline card dies, and one of the arched gateway dies as well. this first card has my newest sentiment from Creative Expression “On Your Wedding Day” – I’d been looking for it forever!!
The lower card also has a sentiment from the Floral Frames die cuts.
If you play with some of these flowers, and springtime colored papers long enough, you might be able to forget that it’s not actually Spring outside yet!
Heartfelt Creations has come up with another sure winner in the Garden Lily collection – not that they ever fail to disappoint – but this is one of my top three favorites (the other two were the Wild Rose, and the Sweet Peony).
Now I recognize that Valentines has come and gone, but I still wanted to share these beautiful lilies, some call this the Star Gazer Lily, I always called it the Rubrum Lily – it’s one of the favorites of brides (back in the day when I used to make Wedding Cakes, this had to be made for almost every other cake) – and so I enjoyed fashioning out of paper, and adding some speckles, just like the real flowers have.
These yellow lilies remind me of early summer in my backyard. Tiny white snowdrops to accent the lilies help set them off, as well.
I love sharing my cards with you, my friends! Thank you so much for stopping by. Now get crafting!!
Having fun making peonies lately . . . I needed an excuse to make a white Peony, so I rummaged around my Heartfelt Creations paper packs, and landed on the Floral Banners.
I used the lace from one of their dies, for the pink Lily I actually used the small daffodil die, without the trumpet center, the medium pink are peony “buds” using the small peony dies; the bright pink are the small petunia, and the light blue “blossom” are from the smallest cherry blossom die. So basically 99% HFC products, and a little bit of my time. Can you see the floral “banner” under the dimensional flowers? (Trying to be like the pros there, lol! without the fussy cutting!)
The little bird came from my stash, you’ve probably seen them at craft stores too, I just put some glossy accent on it to make it shine; and the sentiment is from a Tim Holtz package of chipboard sentiments.
For the middle of the card, I used more of the same HFC paper from the Floral Banners (same sheet of paper throughout, just using the front and the back, and I have a sentiment from a sticker pack you can’t really see in there.
Y’all don’t pay any attention to the fact that the bottom lace is facing the wrong way and should’ve been tucked under the pink paper, ok? It’s a work in progress, and I tried to kind of cover up my mistake with some flatback pearls. It is what it is (sigh)!
Well I am hooked on the idea of Lilies and Lace! Actually, I’m just hooked on these Scrapandme papers I’ve discovered!! This lovely card is also from the “Aquarelles” collection.
To make this card, I used the largest die from the Heartfelt Creations Teardrop Lattice Gateway dies, to make the shaped card. Then I cut the front panel with the same die, adhered it in place, cut the teardrop lattice gateway, and adhered it on top of the Scrapandme decorative paper. The inside panel was cut using the largest of the Heartfelt Creations Scalloped border gateway die for the right hand side, and for the left hand side, I cut this image first using my old Creative Memories circle cutter, and then used the largest scalloped circle die from inside Heartfelt Creations Decorative Circle Frames die set, to place behind the patterned paper – although both pieces came from the same paper pack as everything else.
On the front of the card, I took some fabric lace and glued it down, and then placed a ribbon in the center as shown – and I clamped it for quite a while before going back to decorate with the flowers, to make sure it had dried. In fact I made all my flowers after I glued the lace and ribbon down.
For the lilies, I actually used the HFC Daffodil, and narrowed the petals a smidgen, and then put in the lovely sparkly stem you see there – I did roll the wire of the stamen in some matching ink. The daffodil, again, was made from the same set. The small blossom were cut from the smallest Classic rose dies, and I just cupped the flowers, and glued in the stamens. The ferns are from a “no name” set, and I used the HFC Dahlia large leaves to tuck under the lilies.
I think even the “Thank you” sentiment came from HFC, probably the Butterfly Dreams set – its in the one with the lacy square, and small doily, as well as the Single smaller butterfly. I’m not sure this set is available anymore, but I find lots of great sentiments for die cutting from Creative Expressions on-line at various shops – Heartfelt Creations and Graphic 45 often have sentiments in their collections as well, whether stamps, or die cuts.
And that will finish your card! I do love creating these cards, but even more, I enjoy giving them to people. Mothers Day is coming up, and I have over 50, which I will be taking over on the Saturday before, so the nurses can sign and deliver them. Wouldn’t it be great it I could make 75 next year?……that’s a lot of crafting!!
Well, thanks for stopping by, and please leave me some feedback, and share my blog to others who might be interested!
The theme at “A Place to Start” for May is Lilies and Lace. I love the beautiful artwork on Scrapandme papers! I had thought I would never get to use them, since they seem to be based in Poland, but got lucky, and found a shop in S.Carolina (Crafty City) that had a few of their collections. So this is my very first Scrapandme Card!
This card uses the Aquarelles paper collection, and of course, my favorite flower die company Heartfelt Creationsfor my hand crafted lilies and blossom. I sort of cheated, and used the dies for the daffodil, narrowed the petals a bit, and then used the leaves from the dahlia collection. (The fern leaves are from an unknown designer.)
I just love stamens that I used for the centers, don’t you? I had to hand die the purple ones, I had completely run out, but the ones I had were very pastel anyway, so (believe it or not!) I used the teal ones, and died them to purple you see here. The lace is from my stash, and I literally have only about six inches left of it!!
The inside was cut from the paper pack as well as the sentiment, using an old oval cutting device I have had for years made by Creative Memories.
