Heartfelt Creations November Alumni Blog Hop

 Hello Friends,

I am so excited to be back in the Blog hop as a Heartfelt Creation Alumni member and this time we have the brand new Black Friday launch dies to share with you our creation.

For today, I have the brand new Elegant Gateway dies and create a Wedding Envelope and Gift Box Coordinating Combo.

The Alumni Team hops the last friday of each month. By hopping along with us you have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate . The Hop starts at 8AM DST on Friday, Novemeber 27th, 2020 and closes Monday, November 30 at 11:55 PM DST. Winner will be announced on the HC Facebook page on Wednesday, December 2nd, 2020.

All you have to do is leave a comment on each blog in the hop before 11:55 DST on Monday, November 30,2020. We will randomly choose one comment from a mystery blog to win the $25 Gift Certificate.


The box is a plain 4'x4" box however I choose to decorate the lid using the gateway die. I took the separate piece and layered each of them with a 1/8" difference from each layer. Also kept a layer of Gold card stock to get the elegance. I have also kept the base layer using a dry embossed background to add an edge.

For the money envelope I simply die cut a white panel of white card with the one of the dies from the collection and layered it with a pattern paper( from any collection you may choose ). Each layer is raised using foam dots and also some foam layers to get the raised effect.

If you notice I left the center filigree piece blank without any flowers or sentiments so that the die cut designs can be captured.

Some more close up of the project and yes the flower bouquet is also handmade from Heartfelt creation flower die.

Hello Lovely people, its been a while I hopped blogs with Heartfelt creation due to various reasons. But now I promised from now onwards I will be a regular on this. Now coming to my project.

Recently I have been indulged in lot of distress inks techniques and painting. So I thought lets use the same and then create something beautiful which is quick and creative.

Created a distress ink background with lots of stamping , heat embossing and dry embossing with the help of Dogwood flower stamps and also leave image. Later sprinkled some water and heat set it.

In order to assemble , nested two oval shape dies and die cut a white paper. Also offset oval nested dies and created the inner die cut shape.

For the motifs , white heat embossed two flower image from the dogwood collection and then white water color them. Kept it simple since it will be laid on a busy background. Tucked in leaves which is white embossed on a vellum sheet.

Finished it with a sentiment and inserted it in between the flower arranegement.

A randomly chosen comment from a mystery blog will receive a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations. To claim your prize please email Heartfelt Creations at with "Winner of the April Alumni Hop" in the subject line.

Wooden Plaques

Hello Friends,

Piyanki here today with another exciting, fun project featuring the Craftreat Stencils. You must have seen the array of home decor stencils that are there in the Craftreat catalogue.

Today;s project is a form of wall art and is a fun technique to work with Stencil. Let me give some peak into the projects.

1 -  Apply a thin coat of White Gesso on all the wooden plaques and let it dry.
2 -  Apply a think coat of any dark shade chalk paints. Rub some candle stick on the surface to create the chipped edges and also the distress edge.
3 - Once done then apply a lighter shade on top it and let it semi dry.
4 - Once partial dry chip off paints and also sand it with a sanding block so that on some places the background color exposes.
5 - Take your stencil and using a rolling brush transfer the image.
6 - Stamp some images with archival ink( Do not use distress ink here ) to create a background.
7 - Apply antique wax and rub off with a clean cloth.
8 - You can choose to apply a coat of varnish to finish this project.
