Heartfelt Creations Sunkissed fleur flip cards


Good morning!  Today I have for you a flip card that I made with my new Heartfelt Creations dies and stamps set.  I also used a new Sizzix die to cut the card.  It was marked down at Hobby Lobby for $17.  I will use this one over and over, that's how I justified it anyway.  Really, I have already made two different designs and four cards.  But then I saw that the new CTMH Cricut cart is going to have a similar card cut that will of  course be able to be sized!  Oh well.  I still use my Big Shot an awful lot!


So I was playing around and I wanted to make orange flowers because my Secret Sister's favorite color is orange and this was her card for the reveal.  I belong to a group of scrappy ladies who have "secret sisters" for about 6 months and then reveal who they are...you send a little something every month.  My Secret Sister just happened to be a friend, Theresa! She was also a participant in my very first blog hop!  And I will be doing some work with her Virtual Crop on July 18!  If anybody is interested, send me an email and we can get you invited!


I stamped the flowers with Mix'd Media Truffle ink and embossed with Judikins Chocolate Twinkle powder.  The flowers are mostly inked with Quick Quotes Powder Puff chalks (mango mai tai) but I may have used some Stampin Up ink, (they yellow is something about sunshine).



Close ups and more close ups.  The pictures still don't do it justice!  I used the Spellbinders Scalloped Circle for layering.  Recollections Chocolate Pearls for the flower centers!  A strip of American Craft glitter ribbon to match the embossing.



The inside



Chalking and inking the flowers on the card was difficult even with the applicators I used but you can't really tell how much I colored outside the lines!  I used a Creative Memories Hex punch and Stampin Up stamp for the sentiment.

Thanks for checking me out!

I wish to enter this in the following challenges:

  23. Such a fabulous card. Welcome to our challenge at Chalk At Lot. That is a hard call with regular dies vs the Cricut or Silhouette. I do so much with my dies that I can't do on Crciut so I justify it's worth that way. Have you done partial die cutting with you dies? Or you can't emboss and then stencil with an electric machine. Anyway, thanks for joining us at Chalk Ah Lot. Good luck with the draw.
