Heartfelt -A Tropical Road Trip

Good morning!

This week we are debuting the new Young at Heart Collection...It is so cute with cars, trucks and planes.
I decided to go the tropical "route" for my travel card today.  The piece of paper I used on the last page with the truck under the Palm tree was my inspiration for the entire card.

Brown Fun Foam used to raise the Journey letters.

Instructions:  6" X 6" Tunnel Card.  I decided to get my tropical supplies out for this card because of the panel I used for the last page, a truck under a palm Tree. Sometimes a piece of paper is the inspiration that gets me going and that was definitely the case with this card.  I started out by putting the tunnel card together and then finding, measuring and cutting paper for each side of each page. I cut my paper to size and then place the right size circle in the hole and draw a line with pencil, take the paper out, line up the die and cut.  I will cut both panels needing the same size hole at one time.   Sponge the edges of each panel with Distress Inks (in this case I sponged each page a little darker shade of the paper color). Cut the circle frames for each hole with a coordinating card stock using the circle dies large and small sets.  Sponged a darker shade on the inside of the circle frame.  I then started stamping and die cutting all the embellishments I wanted to use, either sponged color on or used my Copics to color, formed all the flowers and put them together to have everything ready for building my "book" tunnel card.  For the front and back of my book, I glued ribbon on before adding my paper so that there would be a little tie to hold the book closed.  To decorate I always start with the cover and work my way down.  I thought the beautiful birds would be perfect for my theme, so placed them with foam tape and added greenery and flowers around them.  My "Journey" was stamped and die cut twice so that I could raise the letters. I used brown Fun Foam between the layers to elevate.   My next page has the fun classic truck colored in a light coral.  I added the "best wishes" banner to the back of the truck, some decorative corners, and Hibiscus as well as land for the truck to travel over.  Page 2 features the classic convertible, a palm tree, flamingo, plumeria and decorative pockets.  Page 3 features the VW Bug, palm tree, flamingo, hibiscus, plumeria, and decorative window topper (from Winter's eve) and the last page features my inspiration panel with the truck and palm tree (the center circle is popped up with white Fun Foam),  it also has the decorative pockets, plumeria, and decorative window topper.  All the small flowers, I used throughout the little book as fillers, are from the Wildwood Florals.

 Thanks for visiting today!

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, 

What is man that You are mindful of him...

Psalm 139:13-16
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;[b]
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.

Heartfelt-Coral Reef Tunnel Card

Good morning!
Breaking away from fall this week I have a nice cool underwater tunnel card book to share.  I LOVE these tropical colors, tropical flowers and beautiful serene fish just swimming around in their little underwater paradise.

Some of the seaweed on the cover was made with dyed gauze. 

Each page has a different scene to take in like a children's quite book.

On this page I've used some real shells on the bottom

There is an actual real seahorse on the cover along with real shells.

Heartfelt- Coral Reef Tunnel Card


Instructions: Other Products: Distress Inks: Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberries, Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Copic Markers: R21, R14, R22, R20, R00, Y11, Y15, Y38, BG11, BG32, BG15, V12, V15, YR04, C01, C02, C03, C05, C07, E00, Gauze, knotted twine, eyelash trim, ribbon, 3-M foam tape, Pearls, real shells, real seahorse

Instructions:  Card size is 6 X 6.  Put the layered circle card together.  Choose papers and cut each 6 X 6 paper to fit leaving a small border then cut circle out of the center of each to match the page it is going on.  Make circle frames from coordinating paper for each opening except the smallest circle page (you will use the port hole for the frame on this page.  Stamp, color (sponged with Distress Inks) and die cut all the flowers for the 
front of card (before gluing front cover on to the top, secure a piece of ribbon to make a tie for keeping card closed, same for the back cover). Form flowers and glue together then add white Prills to stamen and centers.  Stamp, color and die cut fish, porthole, coral reef and shells and arrange on desired pages. Tear pieces of tan paper for bottom of pages with that have no sand at the bottom already. Stick some eyelash trim under some of the glued on sand.  Decorate each page with coral reef, shells, and twine.  Die cut several scrolly leafy die cuts (from Cut Mat Create) from a green paper out of the Blazing poppy collection and die cut pockets from a piece of coral paper, glue pockets to tops of pages 3 & 4, cut up and glue pieces of scrolly leafy die cuts throughout card.  Finish with pearls and white Prills at the bottoms of each page.  Die and add gauze to some areas at the bottom of pages.  Add pearls throughout card top and bottom (these work well for spacers).  Some of the fish and seahorse is popped up with foam tape as well. 

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the ocean depths. You care for people and animals alike, O Lord.

Philippians 4:6-8
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

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.

Thank you so much for visiting today!!
I hope you will try your own Bear Jamboree card!!

Ephesians 4:29New King James Version (NKJV)

29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.
Proverbs 18:21
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).

Good morning!

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?

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!

From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord,

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


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.
