Heartfelt Easel card...

Hello!!  The papers on this collection are my favorite, I really like to work with black and this one sheet of paper I used is black with flowers!! LOVE!  so this is what I made...

Products used:
HCPC-3773 Flowering Dogwood Cling Stamps
HCD1-7129 Flowering Dogwood Die Set
HCPC-3776 Dogwood Chapel
Designer "Flowering Dogwood" Paper Collection

Other products used - White and red card stock, Stickles "Stardust", Stamping UP! "Pink Passion" and "Mello Moss" ink stamp pads, flat back flower beads, Paper Studio butterfly paper punch, Spellbinders Nestabilities Mega Dies Labels Twenty.

Card base die cut using the biggest die in the Nestabilities die set.  Fold this card in an easel style card. Finish product is 6 x 4.
Using same big die cut 2 panels from the designer paper, and using the next size down, die cut one more panel.
I used the preprinted image of the dove for my card cover. Adhere the second panel onto the card base,[mine is the pretty floral print set in a black background] then the smaller sized panel on top of that.
Stamp "Happy Easter" and set aside.

Stamp the flowers on a piece of pink designer paper using the Pink Passion stamp pad, die cut and form, do the same to the leaves but use green paper and the Mello Moss ink pad. Put your flowers together, add stickles and the flat back beads and adhere to your card. Punch out a couple of butterflies and add to the card face.

Add a few flowers to the inside of the card and adhere 3 little flat back beads just above the stamped sentiment to keep the card standing up right.

Trying my hand at a box!

Hello, this project is made from an old cardboard box I had. It made for a cute altered project. It was easier than I thought to do. I shy away from hard projects but once you get started, it goes by fast, and the heartfelt papers make it so easy to make things cute.
look at those cute fairies!!
you can purchase them and the paper here :

Here is what I used to alter this little box...
Products used:
HCD1-7126 Wildwood Cottage Darlings Die
HCD1-7120 Wildwood Cottage Accent Die
HCPC-3769 Wildwood Florals Cling Stamp
HCD1-7125 Wildwood Florals Die
HCPC-3772 Wildwood Cottage Accents
“Wildwoods Cottage” Paper collection

Other products used: Stickles “star dust”, Memento “Tuxedo Black" to cottage accents, StampinUp! “Forest Foliage” for the foliage and “Chocolate Chip", pearl beads for flower centers, Valspar Satin paint in "Wash Green".

I used a little Card board box that measures 6x4, painted the box inside and out using Valspar Satin paint. Let it dry and then cover the inside and out of the box with using a sheet from the paper collection.

Stamp, color and die cut the fence and fence gate using the Chocolate Chip ink pad. Cut enough to go around the outside of the box.

Stamp and die cut 2 of the fairies and adhere them to the front and top of the box
I used one of the pre-printed panels on the top of the box, I liked the cottage view.

Stamp, color and die cut flowers and foliage and add them to one corner on the top of the box. Add the beads to the flowers and add a sentiment. Mine is straight from the paper collection.
Add stickles and you’re done!
