My Very First Post!!!

Today's a very big day for me!  It's my very first post and I'm so excited!
I'm hoping that you'll enjoy what I have to share.  Card making and paper flower making have become my passion.  I'm obsessed!!!  From the first moment I saw all of the magically beautiful projects that could be made with Heartfelt Creations products, I was hooked!  I've only been at this for a few short years and I still have so much to learn but I so enjoy learning new things. It's not a good day if I don't learn something new. Lol.

This is my latest project and I hope you like it!







Create the handbag giftbag by following the directions on Linda Parkers YouTube video "Large Handbag Gift Bag".  (I actually trimmed the front flap a little to fit the paper I chose to cover it.)
Cut two pieces from the Heartfelt Creations All Glammed Up Paper Collection 7 1/8" x 5 3/8" each for the front and back of the handbag and two pieces 7 1/8" x 3 5/8" to cover the outside and inside of the flap and one piece 11 3/4" x 5/8 to cover the handle.  Distress the edges of all the papers with Ranger Distress Black Soot ink and adhere them to the front and back of the gift bag as shown here.   Stamp the roses on dark red card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink using the HC Classic Rose Stamp and cut them out with the matching die.  Shape the flowers following the directions in the Heartfelt Creations video on their site.


Stamp the HC Classic Rose Vines on dark green card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black
Ink and cut them out with the matching die and shape. Be sure to make enough roses and vines for the handbag and the card.  Add a little Dries Clear Glue to the edges of the roses and vines and sprinkle with Krystallos Shard Glass.  Oh, I just love how this looks!  Attach the roses and vines to the front of the bag and embellish the handle with black rhinestones.  Add a black rhinestone flourish to the front.

Create a tent fold card  5" high x 6" wide using black card stock.  Select a piece of the designer paper and cut 4 5/8" x 5 5/8".  Distress the edges with Black Soot ink.  Cover a piece of 6" x 3" black cardstock with double sided adhesive and cut out using the HC Regals and Borders Die. Attach it to the back of the designer paper as shown and sprinkle the top with Sparkle n Sprinkle Midnight Gold glitter and burnish. Attach the designer paper with the border to the base card using dimensional tape. Stamp the shoe with the All Glammed Up Shoe Stamp using VersaMark on black card stock and heat emboss using gold embossing powder.  Cut out with the All Glammed Up Shoe Die.  Embellish with the roses and vines and adhere to the card with  3D Double Dots.   Cut the Journey of Life ticket from the paper and attach it to the card using 3D Double Dots. Glitter the little shoe on the ticket.   Decorate the inside of the card with designer paper, cut a pocket into the paper and add a tag from the paper collection and stamp with a sentiment. 


Well, that's all for today.  (Finally)
I hope you enjoyed the very long winded post and I can't thank you enough for stopping by.

Have a beautiful day!!!!!

Hugs,
Janet
