Heartfelt Creations ~ BRAND NEW DIES!!!!!!!!

Hi Friends,

Can you hear my excitement? Yes Heartfelt Creations is launching a second release of beautiful slimline dies and boy are these fun to work with.  They go right along with the ones released back on Black Friday 2022 and will round lut your collection nicely. Here is a look at one of my favorites!!!


Cut a piece of white cardstock to 7 1/2” x 9 1/4” and score in half at 3 3/4” to form a top fold slim line card base. Using the largest die from the HCD3-7447 Slim Elegant Rectangle Die set cut through both layers making sure that the die falls over the top of the folded edges to prevent from cutting the fold line. This will create the shaped card base. Next using the same die cut 2x, cut once from white cardstock and once from sheet 9B from the HCDP1-2147 Garden Lily Paper Collection. Glue the white layer to the card front. Using the HCDA1-449 Stack & Store Daubers ink the edges of the pink piece (you will do this to the second pink piece in the project as well) with Magenta Hue archival ink before glueing it to the card front. Now with the second largest die from the Slim Elegant Rectangle Die Set cut a piece from sheet 4B and from Luxe Silver Cardstock. Layer and adhere these offsetting them so that the silver peeks out behind the floral paper, glue to the card base. Using sheets 6B, 9B, and 4A from the paper pad along with Luxe Silver Cardstock cut the multi layers from the smaller layering dies in the die set, as shown. Before gluing each set together, stamp the sentiment from the HCPC-3846 Thank You Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Magenta Hue. Create the three layers and attach them with 3D foam dots in between to add dimension.  

Using the HCPC-3948 Sweet Magnolia Cling Stamp Set stamp the small magnolia stamp 2x and the medium magnolia  1x onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper with Magenta Hue Archival Ink. Next stamp the HCPC-3835 Leafy Accents Cling Stamp Set 1x in Olive Archival Ink. Cut out using the coordinating die sets. Color the centers of the flowers with Vivid Chartreuse Ink and the edges of the flower petals with Magenta Hue. Color the leaves with Leaf Green and Olive Archival Inks. Now shape all the flowers and leaves with the coordinating 3D Shaping Mold. Then using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Set add some texture. Poke a hole in the center of each flower with a golf tool and add HCS1-458-2 Bright Pearl Stamens - Medium making sure to secure them with hot glue. Lastly add Dries clear glue to the petals with a hydra sponge and generously add Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear Glitter.

Stamp the smallest dragonfly from the HCPC-3983 Decorative Dragonflies Cling Stamp Set with Watering Can Archival Ink and color with detailed brushes using Magenta Hue, Sunflower, and Leaf Green Archival Inks. Cut out with the coordinating dies then glitter with Crystal Ultra Transparent Glitter. 

To assemble, layer a small bunch of leaves in the bottom left hand corner of the card. Then arrange the 3 blooms atop securing them with a glue gun. Add the dragonfly as a finishing touch. Complete the inside as desired.

I hope you enjoyed that as much as I enjoyed creating it for each of you! Check out my personal project in the Heartfelt Creations Gallery to find out what products I used for this project.
