Heartfelt Creations Wednesday and the Release of the Beary Fun Retreat Collection....

Long days filled with sunshine begin to fade and the crisp evening breezes begin to call for cozy wool knit sweaters as the fall season slowly ushers out the lazy days of summer! Along with the falling leaves and a last surge of floral blossoms, autumn brings with it a more relaxed and reflective way of life and a reminder that winter will soon be around the corner. Autumn also brings with it a fun that only autumn can bring…playing in crisp piles of fallen leaves, picnics with warm beverages, cozy evenings spent around the campfire and exploring fields filled with rows and rows of sunflowers bowing their heads giving way to the season! Even the animals of the forest recognize and celebrate the subtle arrival of autumn, spending their last few days before hibernation playing and making preparations for the arrival of the upcoming winter season. Come along with us and join in our fall festivities as we go on one final fun filled retreat with the Beary Fun Retreat Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Filled with delightful and captivating illustrations of adorable bears, this autumn themed collection is sure to appeal to all ages! Perfect for celebrating an array of occasions, this fun loving assembling of stamps, dies and decorative papers will bring a whimsical and lighthearted touch to all of your paper crafting creations. The dynamic paper collection boasts a color palette filled with beautiful tones of burnt oranges, rusty reds, midnight blues, along with leaf like greens and golden yellows all mixed with checkered plaids, decorative stripes and gorgeous imagery of blooming sunflowers and falling leaves. Three sets of detailed cling stamps with coordinating dies allow you to join in the fall themed fun of a charismatic bear family enjoying their last retreat before winter sets in. Whether sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows near an adorable treehouse, enjoying songs strummed out quietly on guitar, or filling up on delightful meals of honey, these cute images are ideal for embellishing all of your fall themed cards and scrapbook layouts! So throw on a cozy sweater, grab a cup of hot cocoa and join in the fun as we enjoy one last “beary” fun filled autumn retreat!

You can watch a video on making sunflowers here: https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/75/classic-sunflower-shaping-and-stamping 


Instructions:  My card is 7 X 7.  I made the card base using the watercolor paper because of the size and for stability.  Decide on which window box you want to use and cover it with the paper collection.  Cut one of the card fronts to fit on the back panel and glue it down. Glue the box to the front of the card leaving the right side unglued so you can slip in the tags later. Next using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink I stamped the sunflowers, leaves and bear onto watercolor paper.  Using various Distress Inks I watercolored all the elements.  Add the Prills to the flower centers and set aside to dry.  I used Glossy Accents to cover the ladybug and set it aside to dry.  Once everything  is dry, decide on the placement and glue them down.  Next using the tag dies cut out the tags and the backing and glue them together.  Add the ribbon and slide them into the side of the box. Next find a sentiment and back it with the navy blue paper and using the dimensional tape adhere it to the top of the card.

A Quick Birthday Card.....

Good morning everyone!  Do you find you are always needing a birthday card?  It used to be I'd just pop out and buy a card and mail it but now I feel guilty if I spend that money when I have all these paper crafting supplies stored here!  Recently it was my brother's birthday and of course I didn't have any made up ahead of time so I needed to get one made to send off to him.  I have a die that cuts out a step card so I was able to make up a  card rather quickly and then I actually decorated it with leftover bits left on my desk from another card so it all worked out!



The fox, flowers and pretty papers are all from Heartfelt Creations.  They always have just what you need for making all kinds of projects and make it so easy to "WOW" the people who receive your cards!

Well that's it for me! I"m off to get my day started.  I plan to clean the craftroom today, it is really getting messy!

Watch a video on making the Hibiscus Flower:  https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/119/flower-shaping-101-how-to-create-a-gorgeous-hibiscus-flower-for-cards-papercrafts-and-scrapbooks

Instructions:  My card is 6 X 6.  Cover the card base with the paper collection and use the circle dies to cut center holes in the paper.  Using Rich Cocoa ink stamp the flowers and leaves.  Cut out, color and shape and add the flower soft and set aside. Next using Tuxedo Black ink stamp the turtles, sea horses, and fish.  Cut out and color them then set aside.  This is also a good time to add any glitter that you want.  Find the Jelly Fish on the paper collection and cut it out.  The die fits perfectly so if you are not a stamper you can use the images on the paper.  I also cut one of the fish as well.  Now you are ready to decorate.  Decide where you want the elements to go and glue them down and the card is finished.  This is a very easy card for the end result to be so wonderful.  I hope you try this as it has a huge WOW factor.

Watch a video on shaping the Classic Petunia here:  https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/152/ez-classic-petunia-flower-shaping-techniques

Instructions:  My card is 5 X 7.  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection. Cover the edges of the shadow box with the paper collection before you make the folds actually make the box.  Once the shadow box is covered glue it, just around the edges and adhere it to the card.  The fourth side is left open so you can slid the tags inside.  Now stamp, cut out, color and glitter the hummingbirds and butterfly.  Stamp, cut out, color and shape the flowers and leaves.  Glue everything down and allow to dry.  Cut out the tags from the paper collection and tie the fiber through each one.  Slip them down behind the box and your card is all set.

I have really enjoyed showing you my two projects this morning and hope you head over to the Heartfelt Creations Blog for more inspiration!  The other design team members have worked to bring you so much beauty there and I just know you will find something that just speaks to you!
