Christmas Penguins

Frantic Stamper Precision Die - Sweet Holly Penguin



Frantic Stamper Merry Christmas die 09619
Hi, Nancy Hill for Frantic Stamper and what an adorable little sweet penguin that will cheer every ones day on your 2017 Christmas card.  I cut out three penguins in each cardstock colors of black, orange and white and three different patterns and assembled them together with different patterned hats.  I cut out the Frantic Stamper Merry Christmas die in red glitter cardstock.  I added glitter on the hats and holly and NUVO Crystal Drops-Rhubarb for the berries.  

The falling snowflake background is from the Sue Wilson Christmas embossing folder collection.

Also, I do appreciate your comments and visiting my blog each time.  Also, make sure to stop by to see what Frantic Stamper creative and talented design team made for you:

Thinking Of You

 Welcome back bloggers and I am sooooo excited to share with you some techniques that I have used on my autumn card made with Heartfelt Creations Woodsy Wonderland and Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fleur Flowers dies and stamps sets along with NUVO Embellishment Mousse colors and Copic markers.  All of these amazing coordinating Heartfelt Creations papers, dies and stamps sets  came from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.  The Rubber Buggy has wonderful name-brand craft products with fast delivery and fantastic customer service. 

I love the coordinating dies, stamps and paper in the Heartfelt Creations Woodsy Wonderland collection.  We have several relatives who love the outdoors and also a few hunters.  I have made several cards and projects with this collection and love how easy it is to make wonderful cards and this shadow box card using the beautiful trees, animals and birds in this collection.  

 I colored most of the animals with Copic markers and the squirrel and birds were cut out of the Heartfelt Creations Woodsy Wonderland paper collection.  

One technique that I love to share with you is that the sunset was colored with NUVO Embellishment Mousse colors of Aqua Marine, Peony Pink, Coral Calypso, Lemon Sorbet and Mother-of-Pearl.  I sprayed some water on the heavy white card stock and also sprayed some water in each of the NUVO Mousse jars.  I would suggest to start on top with the NUVO Mousse Aqua Marine using a sponge or wet cloth and use the Pink and Coral and work in the Lemon Sorbet.  Use the Mother-of-Pearl with a brush to create a few faint clouds in the sunset.  






Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fleur Stamp and Die Set



I sponged on NUVO Embellishment Mousse - Lemon Sorbet, Persian Red and Coral Calypso on the 
Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fleur petals after using a flower molding tool to shape the flowers.  

Another technique that I have found is creating a mix colors in the Prills using Copic markers.  After gluing the center of each flower, I dipped the center in Prills - Go Man Go and let it dry.  I took the fine pointed felt side of the Copic marker and tap some of the tops of the Prills with red, black, green and brown Copic markers.

Minnie Pearl Prills

 I did the same steps with these flowers shown below of applying glue and adding the white Minnie Pearl Prills to these flowers.  After the glue dried, I colored most of the Prills with pink and lavender Copic markers using the fine tip of the Copic markers.  

I will need to make a video within a few weeks on how I made my shadow box for this card.  I thought it would take some time but I created this shadow box within minutes.  The depth of the shadow box is only 1/4" which is good for mailing.  I research shadow boxes on line and got some of my ideas and modified some of their instructions.  Keep watching my blog and hopefully, I will get this videoed shortly.

Heartfelt Creations Wishes Stamp Set


The card measures 7 1/2" x 9" and the shadow box measures 6" x 8".  After creating this card, I could have made this smaller and plan on doing this for my next shadow box card.  I plan on creating a winter and/or Christmas card using this same collection and doing a shadow box card.  

Overall, loads of fun creating this card for a very special person.  I plan on putting this in a small box to send it to him. If you plan on giving your card in person, you can gift wrap it in tissue paper or gift wrapping paper.  

I can't wait to see the possibilities that you will create making a shadow box card.  I really encourage you to purchase the entire coordinating collection of the Heartfelt Creations Woodsy Wonderland paper, dies and stamps from 
The Rubber Buggy.


Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Gift and Card Envelope

Loads of fun creating a gift card envelope and hope you try this out.  I watched Heartfelt Creations tutorial and tried it out on my first envelope and then revised it to fit the fits that I plan to insert in these envelopes.  Most of my friends are paper crafters and I plan on inserting dies to give them for their birthdays and Christmas presents.  

  Just click below and it will take you to my tutorial on Snapguide.  This tutorial has several slides in it so I won't miss a step for you.  As they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words".  Therefore, I would rather have lots of pictures with instructions than just try to explain it in words.  

Check out How to Create a Gift Card in Envelope by Nancy Hill on Snapguide.

This gift card envelope measures 5 1/2" x 7".  Below is the inside of the envelope.  Behind each flower is a magnet.  When you close the envelope, the magnets will stick.  Again, all of these instructions to make my gift card envelopes are in the Snap Guide.  Just click on the web link above.
This photo shows the folded cardstock inserted in the envelope.  This fold provides more space to add the gift.  I will be modifying the size of the envelopes in the future depending on the size of the gifts like a die, check or gift card.  




This gift card envelope measures 7" x 9"
This is the inside of the gift card envelope.  This time, I just taped the magnets.  Depending on the strength of your magnets, you could glue each magnet under the paper.  This was my first gift card envelope and wasn't sure what I was going to use to keep the envelop closed.

Tying the Knot

This is the first challenge for 2017 for The Rubber Buggy Challenge.  Come join the fun and you might be our first winner this year for a $15.00 gift certificate for The Rubber Buggy on-line store.




This is a scrap book page of my son's and daughter-in-law wedding this past month.  The gorgeous paper, tabs on the right of the photo and bottom white oval die cut are from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Wedding collection.

You will most likely see ribbons and flowers on all of my projects.  I made these flowers from the Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily and Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose die and stamp sets.  You can view how I made my cottage roses by click HERE to view a You-Tube video that I created for you. 

 I love using the NUVO Mousse to color my flowers.  This time, I used the NUVO Calypso Coral, Mother-of-Pearl and Peony Pink and sponged the petals of the flowers before assembling each flower.  

I typed in "Tying the Knot" using a Word software and Vivalda Italic font.  Did you know that most printer inks have ink that embossing powder will stick to it.  I printed this sentiment on shimmer card stock and immediately embossed the printer ink with silver embossing powder and heated it with the embossing tool.

My Wish for You with Roses and Butterflies




Welcome back and Hi, Nancy Hill for The Rubber Buggy Design Team.  I have a project or card to share with you each Saturday for The Rubber Buggy and hope you are enjoying my site.  The Rubber Buggy has great customer service and fast delivery.  

I have a card made with Heartfelt Creations  Wish stamp set, Heartfelt Creations Botanic Window, Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose  die and stamp sets and Blue Fern Studio Anticipation paper all from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.  

The butterfly was made with the Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley collection and colored with NUVO Calypso Coral Mousse and Copic red and yellow markers.  

The Heartfelt Creations Classic Roses were stamped with coral colored ink on yellow paper and sponged with NUVO Calypso Coral Mousse for two roses and the other two with NUVO Lemon Sorbet Mousse.  I added the gorgeous US Artquest Mini Prills-Go Man Go to the center of the small burnt red flowers that were cut out with the small Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose die.  I stamped the Heartfelt Creations All Classic Rose leaves with green ink on light green paper and sponged the edges of the leaves with the green ink.  I have a U-Tube tutorial and by clicking HERE you will see  how I made my cottage roses.  

The card measures 8" x 8" and the full Heartfelt Creations Wish stamp sentiment will go inside this card.
