Heartfelt Creations - Candy Cane Cottage Debut

Hi and welcome!

I absolutely love this beautiful and fun collection!
My first card was created using the gorgeous 
Heart of Joy Decorative Die.

Join in on the lighthearted merriment of the holiday season with the new Candy Cane Cottage Collection from Heartfelt Creations! Experience a feeling of happiness and excitement as you immerse yourself in a world of fun filled antics featuring adorable North & South Pole critters celebrating Christmas outdoor style! Begin your snow filled adventures ice skating with fun-loving penguins on a glistening frozen pond, then grab a pair of candy canes and hit the ski slopes for a fast downhill race! Head over to the sweet treat Candy Cane Cottage to warm up with a cup of hot cocoa and thawing hugs from loveable polar bears! Bring this whimsical winter yuletide collection to life, and spread the holiday excitement to friends and loved ones with a charming assortment of coordinating cling stamp sets, decorative dies, and a beautiful frosty designer paper collection filled with jolly hues of berry reds, Christmas tree greens, frigid wintry blues and gleaming snowy whites! Premade card panels with gleeful scenes of penguins at play, elegant poinsettia clusters, and candy constructed cottages lend themselves to quick creating during the busy holiday season, while festive background and scrapbook pages display candy cane stripes, scrolling patterns and gently falling snow, perfect for accenting all of your Christmas or winter themed projects! Three charming cling stamp sets showcasing penguins at play, along with a substantially sized Candy Cane Cottage, brightly shining string lights, delicious candy cane accents, and snow filled evergreen trees set the stage for creating frolicsome, animated scenes for handmade greeting cards, scrapbook layouts, and altered art projects! When paired with the coordinating dies, these happy and high-spirited critter die cuts become adorable dimensional embellishment pieces ready to deliver wintry birthday wishes or yuletide sentiments! So, throw on your down filled parka and warm winter boots, and tag along with us as we head out on a wintery holiday adventure with the Candy Cane Cottage Collection!

For more tips on creating with the Candy Cane Cottage Collection watch the tutorial at

Card is 6 1/2” round. Cut white card stock 11 x 5 1/2” and score and fold on the long side at 5 1/2”. Place the plain edge of the Heart of Joy Decorative Die just above the fold line and diecut. Flip the die to the bottom of the card, line up the cut lines and run through the diecutting machine again creating a round card base. Diecut another circle the same way and adhere to the front of the card base. Using the outer decorative die and the inner decorative die from the same set, diecut from white card stock x2. Flip the die, line up and diecut again creating circular decorative diecut. Sponge one of these with dries clear adhesive, sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear and adhere to the card front. Adhere the second diecut to the back of the card base. Using red paper from the paper collection, diecut a circle and adhere to the inside of the card.  

Stamp the Christmas poinsettias on Real Red cardstock using VersaMark ink, cover with WOW Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter and heat set using the Heat It Tool. Stamp the holly leaves on Garden Green cardstock using VersaMark ink, cover with WOW Sparkling Snow Embossing Glitter and heat set using the Heat It Tool. Place the poinsettias and holly leaves face down in the 3D Christmas Poinsettia Shaping Mold, spritz with water and run through the diecutting machine to shape. Use the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit to finish shaping. Sponge the poinsettias and holly leaves with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear. Add silver glass to the flower centers. 

Stamp the “Cozy Winter Wishes” sentiment from the Candy Cane Cottage Cling Stamp set on vellum using VersaMark ink, sprinkle with firecracker red embossing powder and heat set using the Heat It Tool. Diecut using the Arrows and banner Die. 

Adhere the poinsettias and holly leaves to the card base as shown using hot glue. Shape the sentiment with fingers and adhere using glue dots.
