Here is the inside of the card:


And here is a close up of the flowers:


Materials used:

All Glammed Up Paper Collection

Black Heartfelt Creations cardstock

Stamps – Classic Rose

Dies – Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose, Regal Borders, Cut Mat Create 1A, Spellbinders Large Circles, Lacey Circles

Art Glitter Dries Clear Glue

Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay

Foam tape



Cut a base of 9” x 5 1/2” inch in black cardstock and score at 4 ½” and 6 ¾” and fold the end panel over to create the easel.  Fold into a Cut another two pieces of black cards stock 6” x 5 ½” for the fronts.  Using the edge die from the Regal Borders dies cut the edge from one side of the cards.  Cut two sheets of patterned paer 6” x 5 ½” and cut the lacy border edge from the Regal borders and adhere to the base card.  Place one on the top of the easel and the other on the base of the easel.  Finished measurement is 7” x 5”.

Cut out the panels from the All Glammed Up paper collection and mat onto black cardstock.  Die cut the circle image out of the panel using the Spellbinders circle die.  Adhere the lace to the card using Art Glitter Dries Clear adhesive.  Die cut a black lacy die from the Spellbinders Lacey Circles dies and mat the patterned circle image onto the die cut.  Adhere the image onto the back panel with foam tape for dimension.

For the base of the card die cut another image from a panel using the Cut Mat Create 1A die and mat it with black cardstock adhere it to the second panel.

To make the flowers stamp the Classic Rose stamps in a variety of sizes with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto red cardstock.  Die cut out the shapes and sponge the edges with Rhubarb Stalk ink.  Using the Deluxe Shaping Kit shape the flowers and assemble them in the sizes you want.

Stamp the leaves from the Classic Rose set with Northern Pine and sponge with Bamboo Leaves before die cutting.  Shape the leaves using the Deluxe Shaping kit.

For the base I have added one larger rose and two smaller roses on the leaves either side to hold the easel in place.

Add the leaves and flowers as shown and finally add some pearls on the centre image.  Die cut the sentiment using the Luggage Tags and Labels set and sponge the edges with Rhubarb Stalk ink.  Adhere with sponge foam.

I have used Spectum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay on the roses for a bit of shine and sparkle.

Have a good week and Happy Crafting


All Glammed Up

Welcome back

I have had a couple of busy weeks and finally got a chance to do some crafting in the last couple of days.  I have been focusing on the All Glammed Up range from Heartfelt Creations to have samples ready for the Paper Arts Show in Wellington in August and the Wedding Show in Wellington in September.  I have almost finished off my flip fold album with all the white covered and all I need to do is the finishing touches.  I have also done a layout and some cards.  I have used one paper pack which has gone a long way and  I still have lots of paper for making cards over the next few weeks.

First up is the layout that I have done featuring one of my wedding photos.  I love this paper and the photo went really well with the anitque look of the papers.  The flowers have been made using some red textured cardstock from Sullivans and stamped and embossed with gold embossing ink.  I have used the calyx die from the Vintage Floret die to cut the calyx for the rosebuds.  The leaves have been coloured using Copic markers.

Here is a close up of the flowers.  The embossing made an interesting finish with the textured cardstock.

Here is the front of the flip fold album.  I still need to get some lace to add on the front and it will be finished.  The flowers have been made from a red cardstock that I had in my stash and I have stamped the flowers using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then after I had made the flowers I touched the edges of the petals with some gold metallic rub on which helped make them stand out more.

And here are some cards I have made.  I have used a left over flower and leaves to put over the gorgeous die cut border from the Regal Borders and Pockets die.

I do like the elegance of gold and cream and made this card using the Heirloom Rectangles dies from Spellbinders dies in combination with some old gold pearlescent cardstock.

Finally this card hasn’t come together quite so well.  It was the first time I had managed to do a hinged die cut card and it turned out very well.  But the colour is not the true colour – it has come up more yellow than in real life.  I have sponged the card in the die before removing the card from the die and I was happy with using the Colorbox chalk ink.  It gave a very smooth finish.
