Black Friday - Heartfelt Creations Release

A very good morning to you all! I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving:) x
Today is a Black Friday special release from Heartfelt Creations.
We are pleased to present the Floral Key Collection. This collection contains a neutral colour palette with card panels, papers, stamps and dies that will enable you to create quick cards while achieving the "wow" factor. The Floral Key Collection is a set of key and lock stamps and dies with a paper pack that contains a variety of card fronts, 6" x 6" pieces and 12" x 12" layouts with borders and frames. It's a creative, fun exploration of the vintage spirit. The Floral Key Collection will unlock your imagination to creating incredibly beautiful, "fine art" cards. Take advantage of extra savings when shopping with Heartfelt Creations on Black Friday.
This collection was released over here in the UK last week on Create and Craft by Julia Watts  ..... and guess what? My project that I am sharing with you all today was one of the samples shown!!!  I am one happy bouncing bunny at the moment as my crafting has just exploded into such an amazing, not now being just a hobby, but a career:).....Ooooops I nearly let the cat out of the bag lol:) But I promise to announce soon my very! very! exciting news:) x
Ummm I am getting carried away so let me get back to this wonderfully gorgeous collection from Heartfelt Creations.......The Floral Key Collection!

Here you can see that I have adorned the lid of the box in deep purple flowers  using the Vintage Floret stamps and matching dies and cascaded them down the sides.
I have coloured the decorative heart and the key in using Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Drawing Inks.

I have used 4 of the stamps from the collection
for each side of the box and coloured them in with distress markers and the keys in with Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Drawing Inks which gives them a metallic vintage effect.

Begin by making your base of the box – mine measures 4” square, using pale green card. Make a lid about ¾” in depth, again in pale green card.
Die Cut: 5 x Captivating Squares in purple, 4 Timeless Amour decorative hearts in deep purple(you only need the outer die cut), about 7x open leaves and stamp with co-ordinating die, a selection of Vintage Floret flowers in purple, stamping with the co-ordinating stamps and adding a little gold gilding wax to the edges, (enough to make a nice cascading cluster), 5x Decorative Labels One in cream card, 4x Timeless Amour Decorative Hearts in cream(you will only need one outer die)-stamping 4 of the heart locks onto them using the Plum Memento ink, One set of the Burnished Key die set, stamping just one of the fancy keys(I used the Sweet Memories one, the others can be used in another project).
Distress the edges of the box with the distress inks listed above.  Colour the Heart Locks in using the Acrylic inks and adhere to each side of the box along with the decorative purple hearts that you die cut earlier. Choose some stamps from the collection and stamp onto 4 of the Decorative Labels One squares and colour them in with the distress markers and Acrylic Drawing Inks. Distress with co-ordinating distress inks.  Cut 4 pieces of acetate measuring 4” long and about 1 and ¼” wide, score down the middle to make a right angle. Adhere strong double sided tape to the outer edges length ways and adhere them to each inside corner of the box lid. Now adhere the 4 Purple Captivating Squares to the acetate and mat the Decorative Labels One with your images to each of them as in picture.  Next take the remaining Purple Captivating square and adhere to the top of the lid with foam pads and mat the last Decorative Labels one onto it.  You can now adhere the flowers and leaves in a pleasing cluster, draping them down 2 adjacent sides (this is when you need to decide which image you want to be the front of your box) Add a small flower and 2 small leaves to the top right hand side of the front of the box. Take the cream decorative outer Heart and paint with the Acrylic Drawing Inks adhere this just under your flower cluster so that it sits away from the box.  Cut 3 lengths of purple card about ½” x 11” in length, glue these together just under a flower, loop over and down the side and adhere in position as in picture and add a flower where they meet. (Cut them different lengths) Colour the key in and adhere this to the right hand side of the heart. Add flat pearls to the centre of the flowers and the pearl swirls down the sides of the box.  Add a little stickles  glitter to finish.

I hope you have found my instructions helpful! However if anyone would like any further help with how I have constructed the box please don't hesitate to ask.
This really is a very versatile collection, so if you head on over to the Heartfelt Creations blog you will find lot's of inspiring creations from all the other design team members!

A very Good morning fellow bloggers x
Today I am sharing a very quick make with you.....ok quick for me:) but honestly it took about 30 minutes in total. I made this for Julia Watts Heartfelt Creations show on Sunday on Create and Craft and was thrilled when I saw it:). The 2 gorgeous little children in the photo are my grandchildren Amelia and could choose to use a stamp or topper for your main image but I thought this photo was perfect:)

I began with an MDF heart and covered it in the Heartfelt Creations Antiquity paper, turned it over and glued the lace edge on the back using the box pleat method.......For any of you that are not sure how this is done I will be doing a video tutorial on it! I know I have been promising video tutorials, but honest they are coming soon. It is just that I am so busy making samples and prepping for my 'exciting news' that I have had to put the videos on hold for a while....but they are coming:)
The flower and leaves are the Sweet Juliet die, again from Heartfelt Creations and so are the decorative hearts....these are the Timeless Amour dies, which are one of my favourites amongst the Heartfelt Creations collections:)
As far as I am aware the Sweet Juliet dies sold out in the show however if you would like to purchase them Sir Stampalot have some in stock.

Products I  Used:
  • MDF Heart - Approx. 5".....The overall finished heart is about 7"
  • Heartfelt Creations products: Sweet Juliet Die Set, Timeless Amour Die Set, Antiquity Paper collect.

  • Die cut the roses out, enough to make 4 flowers onto cream card and add some wet glue and cover with the Glitter Jewels.  Die cut and stamp 2 open leaves. Add a length of the decorative ribbon about 1/2"  from the bottom of the card. Adhere the roses onto the card to the bottom left of the image in a small cluster and one small rose on the top right hand corner.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the stamp collection onto cream card and die cut out using the tag die distress a little whilst still in the die with tattered rose distress ink. Adhere this to the card as in picture. 
  •  Add some pearls to the centre of the flowers, on the tag and along the lace. Also add some pearl swirls to the cluster of roses and to the single rose at the top of the card.
  • To finish I have added some more Glitter jewels to the outer edges of the card.
