Pretty Texture for the Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ July  Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects that are “Mixing It Up” –  adding texture that will really take your projects up a notch – or two! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My favorite way to simply add texture to my cards is heat embossing.  Although it’s not a new or latest technique, it adds a little more dimension and interest to your projects.

For today’s card, I stamped the large floral image from the Floral Essence stamp set randomly on Whisper White card stock using Versa Fine Onyx Black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  This eliminates any stray embossing powder that you may get if you used Versa Mark and black embossing powder.  Then using the dots image from Painted Harvest stamp set, I stamped and embossed with gold embossing powder to fill in some of the white space.  I colored the flowers with Flirty Flamingo Blends Combo. I repeated this on another piece of card stock, partially cut it out and glued it onto each flower giving them pretty dimension.

The flower centers are embellishments I had in my stash.  They were originally white before I colored them gold using a Sharpie marker.  They also provided a bit of texture.

Lastly, the sentiment is from Good Morning, Magnolia stamp set and embossed on vellum.  It’s tucked under a flower petal and adhered with a glue dot.

The inside sentiment is also from the Floral Essence stamp set.  I used a retired piece of Flirty Flamingo DSP and a strip of gold foil paper to embellish the inside as well as the envelope flap.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!

Pals Blog Hop: Anything with Wings

Welcome to the Pals’ June  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects using “Anything with Wings” You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Since the new catalog just recently debuted, I was somewhat limited in my stamp set choices for today’s card as most of my “winged” sets flew away with the old catalog.  But this only made me reached a little further for some creativity…and who doesn’t enjoy a good card making challenge?!

Stampin Up Magnolia Lane Thank You Card - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfeltstamping

As usual, I incorporated some new, old and a bit of retired product to create this pretty thank you card.  The star of the card though is the new Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  I hand cut the flowers from this beautiful paper and arranged them over a card base of Petal Pink, Whisper White and Beautifully Detailed Laser Cut Paper.

The butterflies are from the Butterfly Gala stamp set.  I heat embossed and punched them using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  The sentiment is from the Vibrant Vases stamp set.

The inside sentiment is from the Varied Vases stamp set.  Another hand cut flower and a bit of retired 6×6 Petal Pink DSP adds a pretty touch.

A Pretty Springtime Hello…

Hello! Hello! Hello!  Today I’m sharing three fresh and pretty cards that say just that.

Stampin Up Hello Card - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

These cards came together using some of my favorite products so it’s no surprise that I had a really good time creating them.

Here’s the details…

  • Each card starts with a Whisper White thick card base.
  • The pattern paper is Gingham Gala 6 x 6 DSP in Grapefruit Grove, Daffodil Delight and Lemon-Lime Twist.
  • After wrapping the retired Tea Lace doilies around the DSP, I added a strip of coordinating card stock to either side of the DSP.
  • This panel is glued directly to the card base.

  • Using one of my all-time favorite stamp sets, Jar of Love, I stamped the flowers and leaves and cut them with the coordinating Everyday Jar framelits.

  • The sentiment is from the Calligraphy Essentials stamp set.  I heat embossed it with black embossing powder and colored it with Stampin’ Blends and Copic Markers. This set is definitely what I call a “sleeper” set.  I really haven’t seen it used much. I’ve had it for some time and this is the first I’ve used it.  It’s set to retire with the Annual Catalog in June.  I’ll be hanging onto mine though.  It’s really very versatile and I have a few more ideas in mind.

  • This set doesn’t come with coordinating dies so I used my Scan n’ Cut to cut the sentiment as well as the black mat.  I popped it with Dimensionals.
  • A few crystal drops adds the finishing touch.
  • The envelope is embellished with DSP and a delicate trim from a lace edge die that I had in my stash.  I don’t know the manufacturer though.

Stampin Up Hello Card - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

As I mentioned above, I absolutely love all of the products I used on these cards.  However, they’ll all be retiring on June 3rd. But none of them will be leaving my craft room!  You can see all of the retiring products HERE.

 

Thanks for stopping by today.

Take care,

Rosanne

Pocketful of Daisies for the Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ May  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Today’s card features some retiring as well as some new products coming in the Annual Catalog.  The newcomer is the Daisy Lane stamp set which features a smaller daisy and coordinating punch.  You’ll be able to purchase these as a bundle when the catalog goes live on June 4th.

I really enjoyed creating this card.  It seems any card that has some flower arranging makes me happy.

It’s all in the details…

  • The Whisper White card base measures 5 1/2″ x 11″ (a little larger than a regular A2 card).  It’s scored on the longer side at 2 1/2″ and 6 3/4″ and at 2 3/4″ on the short side only up to the second(6 3/4″) score line.
  • Cut on the 2 3/4″ score line to remove the top part of the front of the card.
  • Petal Pink card stock is cut 1/8″ smaller than each panel on the outside and inside front.
  • Fold the front panel at the first score line over to form an inside pocket to hold a gift card. You could easily eliminate this panel to create just a card.
  • Before adhering, punch with a small circle punch to form a notch (picture below).

  • The Soft Sea Foam panel on the front is cut an additional 1/8″ smaller than the Petal Pink panel and is embossed with the Tufted Embossing Folder.
  • I cut the pocket using the Pocket Framelits in Whisper White card stock and cut another pocket using a panel from the Beautifully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper from the Occasions Catalog to cover the white pocket.  I love the pretty detail it provided.
  • I layered two daisies to create each flower and along with the pretty fern also from the Daisy Lane stamp set arranged and adhered.
  • The sentiment on the small tag is from Bella and Friends stamp set, which is set to retire. It’s punched using the Classic Label punch and tucked among the flowers.
  • The inside is embellished with a pattern of Soft Sea Foam 6×6 DSP over the Petal Pink panel.
  • The sentiment, from the Varied Vases stamp set is stamped in Versa Fine Onyx Black ink on a 3 1/2″ x 2″ panel of Whisper White card stock.  I backed it with a piece of Petal Pink card stock cut 1/8″ smaller.  Can you tell that I prefer very thin margins!
  • I embellished the gift card pocket with another daisy.

  • To complete the project, the envelope flap is embellished with a piece of Soft Sea Foam card stock embossed with the Tufted Embossing Folder.

This is such a soft and pretty presentation for a gift card for so many different occasions.  I plan to use the same layout to create a few thank you and graduation cards…stay tuned.
