Heartfelt White On White Love-Special Release

Good morning!
This is what we've been waiting for, wow, look at these new
amazing dies!!!
They are so beautiful, I just LOVE them!

My main decorative framing die has a layer of Fun Foam under it to really make it stand out.
This side view shows the dimension better.

These flowers are the Lush Lilac blossoms made from Vellum.
I did use the shaping mold and it worked fine on the vellum.
You can't see it but the basket/nest is made with the new
1/4 circle decorative die on an eyelet heart. 


Other Products:
White linen card stock, white StazOn Ink, Fun Foam, Dove gray card stock, pearl, sheer ribbon, white pearl embossing powder

For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at

Card size:  5 X 7” Die cut Eyelet Rectangle large, ¼ doily, Intricate Swirl Frame-middle section out of the large Eyelet Rectangle, Cut Eyelet lace frame, 2 largest Eyelet Hearts from white linen, cut one each from Fun Foam.  Stamp and emboss Love then die cut and glitter, die cut 4 more love to layer.  Stamp Lilac blossoms with white StazOn on vellum and die cut (about 30) Place into mold and mist with water then run through die cut machine to form. Stamp Leaves with white stazOn on vellum (7) and die cut.  Stamp doves with white pigment and emboss on dove gray card stock and die cut. 
Let blossoms dry and pierce centers then insert stamen and glue in place and let dry.  Let Fun Foam rest over-night for best results with these intricate die cuts (they need to relax after being flattened in the die cutting machine).  Spritz leaves and blossoms with shimmer spray.  Once everything has a chance to dry and Fun Foam is back to shape, start layering. One layer of Fun Foam behind Eyelet Lace Frame, 1 layers behind the middle cut out section of the Intricate Swirl Frame None under the middle decorative section of Intricate Swirl Frames, one layer on smaller heart and 2 layers under largest heart (cut outside eyelet part off Fun Foam large hearts, it’s un-needed).  On the ¼ doily die cut leave about ¼” borders on each side to use as tabs for gluing.  Glue tabs to heart stack trying to follow sides as close as possible (top corner will stick out a bit).  Fill the “basket” with iridescent grass and start adding leaves and flowers to the basket.  When you have as many flowers as you think you want then add the two doves, foam tape them away from back if needed.  Add the letters for love above the doves and to finish add small and medium pearls.  Tuck a sheer bow under dove’s heads and tuck some sheer ribbon tails into flowers here and there.


Other Products:
Pearls, white card stock, light blue card stock, light orange card stock, foam tape, hot pink card stock

Card size: 5 1/8 X 7 1/8”  Cut light orange card stock to 5 X 7”.  Die cut 2 long Leafy Frame pieces and 2 shorter Leafy Frame pieces to make a 5 X 7” frame from hot pink.  Glue these pieces to edges of light orange panel starting with 2 side pieces (after gluing the first side, glue center decorative piece in place so that the edges are covered with frame) and then glue top and bottom.   Stamp sentiment using Vibrant Fuchsia onto decorative center.
Stamp butterflies with Vibrant Fuchsia.  Sponge large butterfly with Vibrant Fuchsia and Garden Patina then sponge small butterfly with Tiger Lily and Vibrant Fuchsia then form both butterflies from the back especially the wings.  Sponge with adhesive and use Crystal Clear to glitter.   Glue butterflies to card and then add pearls for heads and to inside corners of card Frame..

This beautiful butterflies are wonderful for a friend or sister, mother, daughter aunt...they are so feminine and gorgeous!

I've combined a shadow box with a 5 1/2 X 7" card to create a beautiful scene surrounded by flowers.  
Look how well the sentiment goes with the curved dies!!!

I used ruffled Petunias again on this card...I just love the way they look!

Card size: 5 ½ X 7”.  Make card base  and cut a  piece of decorative paper from the Butterfly Dreams paper to cover the front leaving about 1/16” border of white.  Use a coordinating paper to cover the front of the shadow box then use the square die to cut out the window. Cut another piece of decorative paper for inside the box and then put the box together.  Sponge pink ink around all the edges.  Glue box to card base on the right side of base.
Stamp Sentiment using Vibrant Fuchsia on white then use the plain edge of the Delicate Border to die cut the sentiment.  Sponge pink on the edges.  Cut 2 Delicate Borders out of light green stock to match paper and glue to edges of sentiment.  Die cut 3 Festive Holiday dies, place 2 at an angle on the top portion of the shadow box then glue sentiment on top.  Glue the 3rd Festive Holiday die on the left side, on card base.
Stamp, die cut and sponge color on the Butterfly Dreams Border, Wildwood Blossoms, Petunia Blossoms and leaves.  Form leaves, and wildwood blossoms with Deluxe Flower shaping kit and round the backs of butterfly wings with the large stylist as well.  Place the petunias in mold and mist then run through die cutting machine.  Pinch petunia petals to pleat and ruffle. Let them dry completely then pierce each one in the center and add stamen one layer at a time gluing between each layer.  Add Prills to centers of wildwood blossoms.  Cut one butterfly completely off one of the Butterfly Dreams border to stand alone.  Add Stickles to Butterfly wings and stems of the Butterfly Dreams border (there are two different borders in the Butterfly Dreams Border).  Add Cosmic Glimmer glitter to the little round blossoms on the Butterfly Border.

Romans 5:6-8 New King James Version (NKJV)

Christ in Our Place

For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Can you imagine someone taking your punishment even while you still did not know Him or worse yet, hated Him??  That is what Christ Jesus did for ALL who would turn to Him and believe in Him.  ANYONE, no matter how great the sin is welcome if they go to Jesus, ask forgiveness, except that He died and rose to life again, except Him into their heart.  To from whatever sin you are practicing and live according to His word.  He is kind and good and gives good gifts to His children, you don't have to be afraid to follow Him!  He loves you more than father, mother, husband or wife...He loves you without condition and WANTS you to receive His free gift of eternal life with Him.

Romans 12: 2
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
I love this verse.  I renew my mind by reading and listening to the Word of God each day.  Staying in His Word help to keep me focused on Jesus, His Word is my compass. It helps me to walk in His path not the world's way.
Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Jesus said, 
 “I am the waythe truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6

Heartfelt - Flipfold Ruffled Petunia

Good morning!

I just love all the beautiful decorative dies that Heartfelt Creations has added to their collections!  I think it adds so much delicate elegance.  One of my favorites is the Festive Holiday die, it looks especially good with circles and ovals.

The papers with landscapes always makes me want to show it off in a nature style card like this one.  We live in a place that looks a lot like this especially in the spring with all the wildflowers and blossoming trees that start popping up everywhere.
The main flowers on this card were done with the Small Petunias and the Floral Basics shaping form.  I also gave each petal an extra pinch to make them look a bit more ruffled...easy to do because the form starts it for me.

Heartfelt Creations products used:

Other Products:
Grape Seed Memento , 3M Foam Tape, white card stock, Fun Foam, Copic Markers: E50, E53, E33, YG03, V01, V12, V15, BV01, R20, R81, R83, R85, B00, B01, B000, Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, Pink fiber

For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at

Card size: Approx. 7 ½ X 7 ½” closed.  Start by cutting left side (leaving right 6” as is) with the plain edge of Fleur Border Basics (fold closed far left panel onto the next panel to make a pocket then cut so that when glued down as the pocket, it marches at the top).  Cut decorative paper from the Sweet Peony collection to match each panel then glue each paper down to card base except the 6” right side.  Slip second to the left down under pocket before gluing pocket down at the top and bottom.   Cut an oval from the 6” piece of paper then  cut a piece of Fun Foam the same size (6”), cut an oval from it as well to match paper then glue the Fun Foam to the back of paper,  glue this stack to card base on the right panel.  The oval that was cut out of the paper will go into oval opening, flat to base, so that it sits inside and card is raised up.   Cut Decorative borders from white linen card stock and glue to top.  Cut a frame for the oval opening with the Eyelet oval and next size down.  Cut 2 Festive Holiday dies from white linen (1 will go right side of oval opening and 1 will go left side of outer edge of pocket.
Stamp, die cut and color 2 sets of deer, the bunnies and the little birds from Woodsy Critters.  Stamp, die cut and color petunia blossoms, Rain Boots & Blossoms flowers and leaves and Wildwood tiny blossoms in 3 colors, purple, pink and yellow.  Stamp trees, die cut and color.  Shape leaves and blossoms (except petunias) place petunias in Basic Flower Shaping Mold and mist with water.  Run through a die cutting machine to form.  Pinch each petal (in a pleating fashion) together after removing from mold and let dry completely.  (Some of the petunia flowers made are actually the petunia leaves colored flower colors and shaped like the others).  After blossoms are dry, pierce each blossom in the center and insert a stamen in through the holes staggering petals on each layer (place a bit of glue between each layer).  Stamp sentiment with Grape Seed and die cut with oval die then edge with Pearlescent Purple.
Glue sentiment to center of oval opening.  Glue one set of deer to bottom part of oval then glue white oval frame to oval.  Glue 1 Festive Holiday die cut to right side of oval.  Glue bunny to center panel, glue trees to left pocket panel then  glue second set of deer (cut apart) to left side panel even over part of pocket but don’t glue that part of the deer down.  Glue second Festive Holiday die cut to back of left pocket panel.  Cut three tags of different sizes and tie together with pink fiber then slide into pocket.
Decorate top right and top left with flowers and leaves.  Use foam tape to attach little birds.  Put dots of glue at the bottom and add Prills for tiny flowers in the fields.

Thanks for visiting today!  Have a blessed day!!
