Heartfelt Creations - Because I Care

Good Afternoon All!
Following on from my previous post, I found another card that I had created using the same method but hadn't share on here yet.  This card was made using a stamp from the Sweet Juliet Collection. Love this little card, reminds me of Spring which hopefully will soon be here!

Card Size: 12cm x 12cm
Die cut a circle from a sticky note to use as a mask.  Place this onto a piece of white card.  Using stencil tape, create a frame on your card.  Using ink dusters, gently add colour to the card.  Begin with the yellow, then add the green to the lower half and blue to the top.  Remove the mask and add a little yellow where the mask was to tone down the whiteness.  Add purple and green ink to the floral stamp and stamp several times ensuring that one is stamped in the circle.  Remove the stencil tape carefully.  Using a purple promarker (with fine nib) and a piece of spare card, create a frame around your work.  Cut down to the size needed (mine measured 11.5cm x 11.5cm).  Add purple ink to the edges and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
Cut down some purple paper from  the Burst Of Splendor collection to fit beneath - 11.5cm x 11.5cm. Layer up using foam pads.  Stamp the sentiment onto white card using purple ink, heat emboss and cut out. Create a bow from purple ribbon.  Glue into place and add the sentiment to the centre.

The products used can be found on the Heartfelt Creations blog, along with more ideas and inspiration from the design team.

Heartfelt Creations - Vintage Morning Tree

Good Afternoon Everyone!
Today I have a small card to share which was created using Heartfelt Creations and Robin's Nest products.
I have done a photo tutorial below to show how I created my background using inks and ink duster brushes.

Card Size: 10cm x 11 1/2cm (3 7/8" x 4 5/8")
Choose the paper shown from the paper collection and cut to measure 10cm x 11 1/2cm (3 7/8" x 4 5/8"). Add pink ink around the edges and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Create the background by using the yellow and pink Impress Inks and black soot ink for the hills. Add the tree rubon.  Cut down to measure 7 1/2cm x 9cm (3" x 3 1/2"). Add pink ink around the edges.  Cut a matte from cream card to go underneath the main image and adhere together.  Create a double bow on the bow maker and add the pink ribbon around the card, adhering on the inside.  Add the red dew drop using hot glue.  Add the main image to the card using foam pads. Stamp the Vintage Blooms onto white card using red ink, die cut using the Majestic Blooms Die.  Blend Aged Mahogany Ink around the edges. Shape three flowers as shown in this tutorial  and adhere together, completing with the glitter glue and adding the red dew drop to the centre. Add to the card to complete.

Photo Tutorial For Creating The Background.

 Mask off the edges on your chosen card stock.  Use the Ink duster to add the yellow ink to the card.

 Next, add the pink ink using the ink duster.  Some areas will turn orange as the inks are mixed.

Use a torn piece of paper and some black ink to create the hills.

Complete by adding your chosen rubon or stamp your image.
