Heartfelt Creations January Blog Hop

I apologize for not being ready for the blog hop this time, but I am having an issue with being able to download photos off my new camera to either of the two computers we have.  I'm so sorry to the Heartfelt Creations Blog Hop ladies for not being able to complete my blog entry in time for the hop!

I know this is late, but here is my entry for this hop!  If you came here from Alissa's fantastic blog, you are in the right place!

The color in these photos doesn't represent the actual set of six cards and envelopes very well!  Taken with my phone, they didn't edit right at all, but you can get an idea, I think (I hope!).  :)  I have listed all the stamps and die sets used below, along with cross-partner products used. 

The pocket was stamped in black on blue printed paper, then cut out.  The daisies on the front (in yellow on off-white cardstock) are stamped with the bouquet, and the blue ones on the inside were stamped with the three smallest daisies in the set listed below (on white cardstock).  The inside was stamped using the daisy background stamp, in yellow, then single daisies in blue.  The "popped up" daisy on the front was stamped in black with one of the single daisy stamps on off-white, colored, then diecut using the coordinating die from the die set listed below.  The centers of each flower on the front were covered with liquid glue, the sprinkled with black ultra-fine Flower Soft.

The white cardstock base was cut from 8 1/2" x 11" plain cardstock.  Each card was cut 7" wide by 8 1/2" long.  They were scored in half to 3 1/2" wide by 8 1/2" long.  With the card opened up with inside down, and the top front of the card on the right, cut a square 3" down from the top, and from the center fold to the outside edge.  Fold the card in half once more along the long score line with the front 5 1/2" side facing up.  Stamp single daisies using the smallest stamps in yellow on the front. Score across the 3 1/2" side on the back of the card right at the cut line, so that the remaining 3" on the backside, folds to the front of the card, over the folded 5 1/2" length of the card. 

Stamp your daisy bouquets in black on off-white cardstock, then color as desired.  The markers I used are listed below.  Cut out using scissors.  On the front of the flap that will fold over the main body of the card, I shaded in blue, then adhered the bouquet to the 3" x 3 1/2" area, and trimmed only the bottom edge along the bouquet edge.  On the inside of this flap,stamp varying sizes of the single daisies in yellow.  On the front, adhere a single small daisy stamped in black on white cardstock and colored with markers, and the center glued with black flower soft, with a dimensional adhesive.  This single daisy can be placed anywhere on the front over the bouquet.

 Using the daisy background stamp, stamp one image in yellow in the center of the largest area of the inside of the card completely opened up.  Using various sizes of the smallest single daisy stamps, stamp in blue.  Stamp a sentiment in black on the inside over the background image.
 To finish the cards, make the bookmark for the pocket.  I used yellow patterned cardstock from my scrap stash, and cut into 6 bookmarks measuring 2 1/8" wide by 4" high.  I used the sentiment stamp below in black on the center of the bookmark, and stamped varying sizes of single daisies all over the front.  Punch a hole using a 1/4" diameter round punch in the center top of the bookmark, and tie a 7" length each of blue and yellow trim through the hole.  Slide the bookmark into the pocket, write your own words in the inside of the card over the background, and mail to that special person!

This card will fit in a standard 3 5/8" x 6 1/2" letter-size envelope, and should not require extra postage, but if you use a thicker trim on your bookmark, the card may require a little larger envelope and extra postage.

Next on the hop is the talented Marsha, and you'll enjoy her project! 

Please don't forget to leave a comment on each spot along the hop, so that you have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Heartfelt Creations.  The winner will be announced on the blogs on by noon on Saturday, February 2nd.  If you are chosen, just email Emma Lou at, with "winner of January Alumni Hop" in the subject line.  Good luck!

  1. I like how you die cut the tops. That is very different and cool.

  2. The pockets look so cute. What a good idea. I also like your colors. Nice job.

  3. Cute idea with the pockets and flowers.

    Just a thought, does your new camera have an HDSD card? I had the problem awhile ago that my older computer doesn't read the newer SD cards.

    1. Hi, Lisa. I'm using the same card that I used in the old camera. I think it has something to do with the new camera software. I'll keep working on it, in the meantime, it's back to using the old one! lol :) Thanks for your suggestion!

  4. Love your little pockets.
