Think Happy , Be Happy!

Hello friends, Welcome once again here with a watercolor tag and some Dahlias for you all. Flowers have been the most inspiring element in all of my projects and I continue to enjoy making them with Susan’s Garden dies. Let’s have a look at how to create this tag.

  1. Die cut watercolor paper using the Tags & More die in whatever length you choose.
  2. Softly tint the bottom section of the tag with Crushed Olive Distress Ink. Also ink the edges of the tag.
  3. Mist lightly with water and add more color with watercolor sprays.
  4. Heat set between steps.
  5. DIe cut pieces for Garden Notes Dahlias 2 from White Soft Finish Cardstock.
  6. Shade and color with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and Sunflower Archival Ink.
  7. Die cut Dahlia leaves from green cardstock and fern from white. Add color to the fern and to the edges of the leaves with Crushed Olive Distress Ink.
  8. Stamp sentiment toward the top right of the tag.
  9. Shape leaves and petals. Assemble the bouquet and adhere to the tag as shown in the photos.
  10. Add a ribbon at the top of the tag.
Thats all from my side today, let me know how you like it. Will be back soon with some more creativity.

Until then happy crafting!

Fold out Foam Carnations

Good Morning Friends, With a Merry Christmas just gone by, I am back with another Heartfelt Creations today! In today's card I have used the fold out cards and some newly launched foam flower. The fold out cards are so much fun to work with,

For today's card here's how I have created with some foam carnations and fold out technique.


Start by taking a Kraft flip fold card layout. Measure patterned paper at 1/8" less than the card and distress the edges. There are 2 layers in each of the fold which measure 1/8" less. Stamp some small and large carnation using Plum and leaf archival ink from white foam paper. Shade and color the petal using Crushed Olive and Wilted Violet distress ink. The edges are re-inked once the petals and leaves are shaped.
Die cut a decorative border from white card stock and tuck it in every layer between the card base and the pattern paper. To shape the foam flowers, I used a press which allows the petals to bend automatically and then we can shape it. Layer the petals, pierce the centers and add the stamens.
To arrange the bouquet, use some twigs, pearls and leaves and assemble all the shaped flowers and leaves. Adhere as shown. To finish the card fussy cut tags and sentiments from the paper collection and distress the edges with frosted powder.

Cut pattern paper from the collection at 1/8” less for all the base CS and adhere it. For the edges of the pocket and front panel, die cut pieces from the Sweet Border set and fleur die set it adhere to the pocket and the front edge. For the pocket, fill in some tags fussy cut from the paper collection. This will complete the card base with decorative border.
Stamp and die cut several pieces of the Carnations from white card stock using plum Archival Ink. Later using a sponge and picked raspberry distress ink color the petals. For the leaves stamp and die cut using the stamp set and coordinating die, crushed olive inks.

Congratulations Card – Love in a Mist

Hello Friends, Piyanki here with  a new project using some brand new Susan’s Garden dies. The collection is fun , creative and as always immensely intricate to give your flowers the perfect shape and natural look. For today’s post I have chosen the Garden Notes –  “Love in a Mist” (Nigella Damascena) die set. First the name fascinated me and then when I researched a little about the flower, it blooms in the color blue. For a long time I have not created any flower in blue so went for it at once.
Love in a Mist is a common name for “Nigella”. The ferny , fennel like foliage makes it look all the more interesting. With the die set you have the perfect dies for the foliage which will add the natural look once you assemble the flowers. I chose to create my flowers blue for my card, however you can find these flowers in a variety of different colors.

Step 1 : Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8.5″ x 5.5″, score along the long side at 4.25″ to create a  4.25″ x 5.5″ top folding card which will be the base of the card.
Step 2 : Cut another piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock at 4″ x 5.3″ to form the second layer. Use the Stitched Oval die to die cut a section of the card stock.
Step 3 : Cut a piece of Watercolor Paper to 3″ x 5.3″ add color to this panel using  Distress Oxide of your choice.( Iced Pruce , Broken China used on this card) and some Distress Ink ( Squeezed Lemonade , Curved Pumpkin).
Step 4: Keep adding layers of distress ink, splash some water and then heat dry it in between every layer. Once you form the desired shade adhere this layer to the second layer.
Step 5:  To add more depth to the card base die cut several pieces of the smallest dies from Garden Notes Dahlia 2 and adhered it all over the card stock.
Step 6: Using the Love in a Mist die set, die cut enough petals and leaves to create three flowers from White Soft Finish Cardstock.  Color using Zig Markers.
Step 7 : Assemble all the flowers , ferns around the upper portion of the stitched oval.
Step 8: To finish the card add a die cut the sentiment “Congratulations”  3-4 times from a White Soft Finish Cardstock, stack the sentiments together to give a raised effect. Adhere to the lower portion of the oval opening.

Come Fly With Me Layers

Hello Friends, though this post goes late however this is when we are debuting a brand new collection at Heartfelt Collection.

This collection makes you feel young again , some fun coloring , cool cars and lush green pastures. This collection also gives you some free chocolates and definitely the window seat :).


For images of the inside pages see here. The final layered card measures 6” x 6”. Cut designer paper for each side of the page, die cutting the center using the circle die. For each pages I have layered 2 circle borders with coordinating paper. Once all paper are adhered to the base pages, start decorating each page.
Stamp, die cut and color some sunflower accents, filler leaves, dogwood flowers, petunia flowers. I stamped everything in Archival Black ink except the dogwood flowers(Plum & Sunflower Archival), the Leaf from the Simply Classic set (Leaf-Archival ink) and the leaves from the Sunflower Accents set (Plum Archival on patterned paper and edged with Carved Pumpkin Archival ink). Die cut decorative borders, and fussy cut the tags and cards from the tag sheet. Shape the flowers using the deluxe flower shaping kit. Each page is designed and embellished in different style keeping the collection theme in place.
For the last page a small envelope is created to hold all the tags and journaling. Each page is given a base border using the border dies. For the front of the album, 2 circle die cuts are adheres on a foam adhesive and placed on one corner with leaves, tiny flowers tucked in. On the other corner a bunch is created using the sunflower accents and filler flowers.
Arrange as desired, I added Crystal Clear to the flowers with prills in the center.

For the center die cut several pieces of the Sun Kissed Fleur using  white cardstock and then color and shape the petals and leaves using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Complete the flower with some center prills.

Be the Sunshine

Hello friends, welcoming you to my post. I appreciate you stopping by. Today I have a brand new card using Susan's Anemone flowers. I have made many projects with this flower and somehow I dont get enough.
Its a beautiful flower and love love working on it. Now for any of my card/projects I love to create a background/backdrop on which I lay or assemble my bouquet of flowers.
Every time I try and create something new whether its tone-on-tone , watercolor , mixed media , texture background or something new.
This time I used some scraps of solid card stock to create the backdrop. I had seen a video long back from Jennifer and always wanted to try this technique.
This month I am hooked to this background and I am in the spree to make more and more of this background.


1. Cut and score a white card base to 5.5" x 4.25"
2.Cut several thin strips from coordinating color card stock.
3. Die cut, color and shape several Anemone along with the leaves.
4. Fill the centers and keep it ready to assemble.
5. Adhere all the strips onto the card base.
6.Snip off the extra ends from both sides of the card.
7. Assemble the flowers and leaves.
8. Finish the card with a quote from the stamp set.
