Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday everyone...and what gorgeous weather we are having:).....I won't mention the forecast of 'thunderstorms'!
Today I have my DT Heartfelt Creations projects to share with you all..... I have a shelve card (loving theses at the moment) and a Flower seed gift card!:

Shelve Card


Heartfelt Creations Products Used:
Summer Season Stamp : HCPC 3541
All Seasons  Sentiments: HCPC 3544
Ornate Gateway Die: HCD 737
Sunkissed Tags and Basket Stamp: HCPC3535
Daphne Papers: HCDP234
Gift Ensemble Die: (foliage only) HCD 735

Other Items used:

Versafine ink – Vintage Sepia
Distress inks and Markers
Pearls on thread, scalloped pearls
Cream card stock

Make a shelve card: I have used a base card measuring 6.5x6.5inches. For the bottom shelve cut a piece of card 4”x5” – Score at ½” and

 1 1/2” – This has created a shelve. For the top shelve cut a piece of card 5”x4 1/2”- score at ½” and 1 ½”- This has now created a shelve and you are now ready to decorate.  Stamp and colour the image. Stamp the border and cut out.  Stamp the tag, colour the flowers in and cut out.  Die cut the Gates and arch out of cream card. Die cut 2x foliage. Cover the base card in with your chosen paper on the front and on the inside. Cover the shelves in chosen papers and adhere them in position that when the card is open the shelves sit nicely (as in picture). Adhere the image onto the centre of the top shelve and adhere the gates either side and also adhere the arch to the top of the image. Cut the border to fit onto the bottom shelve in the centre and adhere the tag on top. Stamp the sentiments and cut the  ‘Especially For You’ words out – Ink the edges and adhere to the tag. Finally of course I have added pearls and a little glitter to finishJ.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Flower Seed Gift Card



Heartfelt Creations items used:
Spring Season Stamp: HCPC 3540
All Seasons Sentiments: HCPC 3544
Daphne Papers: HCDP1234
Ornate Gateway Die: HCD 737
Spellbinder dies: Decorative labels twenty two

Other Items used: cream and pink card stock, 2 different ribbons, lace, ornate pearls, flower soft, stickles glitter, distress inks and markers and a decorative punch.


Make the criss cross style card: Take 2 6”x6” card bases. Cut the fronts in half to create triangles. Adhere one card on top of the other- this has made your base card. Adhere your chosen papers to the fronts and also onto the inside of the cards. Stamp and colour the image. Die cut labels twenty two in pink card. Die cut 5 ornate arches in cream card. Take the image and layer up onto the labels twenty two. Adhere the ornate arches to the underneath as in picture and adhere to a patterned daphne paper size: 5”x5”. Adhere ribbon a long the front of the card and then adhere the layered image in the centre of the front of the card. On the inside of the front of the card cut a triangle allowing a ½” border and adhere to make a pocket. Make and adhere another triangle to the back inside of the card again creating a pocket. Cut a image from the papers and layer onto pink card leaving a small border as in picture. Stamp and cut out a chosen sentiment from the all seasons sentiment stamp and adhere in place as in picture. Add lace and ribbon to decorate the inside of card. Make a bow and adhere to the bottom right of the front of the card and add your chosen sentiment. Add a little flower soft to the spring season image. Adhere  pearls to both the inside and outside of the card. For the seed packet’s  I have made small envelopes measuring 31/2”x 21/2” and have printed the images from the internet.(You could stamp your images if you have the co-ordinating flower stamp to the seeds) I have decorated them with a little glitter and punched the corners of the sealing flaps with a decorative punch. You can then either place your seeds straight into the packets or you could keep them in the original packet and fold to fit into the ones that you have just made so that you still have the details and instructions for the seeds.
