DTGD17Benzi – Classic Petunia

Welcome!!  Are you thinking, “What is DTGD17Benzi – Classic Petunia“?  Just seeing the post title without the details would cause me to ask that question!  Let me explain.  DTGD17Benzi is the title of a Splitcoaststampers.com challenge.  It stands for Dare To Get Dirty (DTGD), 2017, hosted by “Benzi”, Brenda, a fantastic artist on Splitcoaststampers.com.  The Classic Petunia is the stamp set and dies I used when creating my card that I am sharing today.

The yearly DTGD challenges are for Club Members only of Splitcoaststampers.com.  If you are not a Club Member, you can become one by signing up on the Splitcoaststampers.com site.  Because the challenges are “secret”, I cannot share the details of the challenge featured on my card.

Here is my card that I made for Brenda’s DTGD Challenge, DTGD17Benzi – Classic Petunia.   The Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Stamp Set and Dies are the main features on this card.

Here are additional photos of the card:

“See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.”

Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Card

Happy Saturday, and thanks for stopping by to see my card share today that features the Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Stamp and Die!

I made this card to submit to a Splitcoaststampers challenge, the Ways To Use It Challenge.  The challenge was to use strips of paper on your card.

To create the card, I cut a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of white card stock and scored it diagonally using a scoring tool. Hopefully you can see the score lines. Then I cut 1/8″ strips of paper and attached them diagonally to the scored piece in a weaved pattern.

I used the Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Stamps and Dies to cut, color, and form the flowers.  Except for the white flowers, I used copics to color the flowers.  I formed the flowers and their leaves with a stylus and added prills in the centers.  Then I added Heartfelt Creations Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear around the edges.  The Crystal Clear is sparkles.

I attached the flowers to the scored and stripped piece after I added a green piece of ribbon. I added a sentiment from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia Collection paper pad.

I have fallen in love with Heartfelt Creations, and I am enjoying making cards with its products.  I hope you like this one!  Tell me what you think of it!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Proverbs 3:1-4

“My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong our life many years and bring you prosperity.  Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.  Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.”

Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval-Shaped Card

Thanks for stopping by today to see my latest creation, my Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval-Shaped Card.  If you have followed my site, you know that I love making cards in the shape of cutting dies.  For this card, I used the Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval Dies to create the card shape.

There are three dies in the Eyelet Oval set.  For the purpose of understanding which of the three dies used for each step of creating the card, I’ve given each die a name as shown in this photo.

To create the card base for my Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval-Shaped Card, I folded in half a 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of 110 lb. white card stock and placed it onto a cutting plate.  I laid the scallop oval die onto the card stock with the left side of the die outside of the edge of the cutting plate.  This was done to assure the left side of the card base remained connected after cutting it.  I then centered the intricate oval die onto the card stock.  The top cutting plate was placed in the same position as the bottom cutting plate as shown in this photo.

I ran the cutting sandwich through my die-cutting machine only twice as I did not want the back of the card base to cut, but to leave an impression.  The heavier weight of the card stock helped to achieve an impression instead of a cut.  As a result, I fussy cut around the impression on the back of the card base, which was not difficult at all.

Using the scallop oval and oval dies, I cut two Tempting Turquoise (Stampin’ Up! color) scalloped ovals and attached one to the card front and one to the card back to stabilize the card base.  The following photo shows this.

Then I used the oval die to cut from white card stock an oval.  I sponged Cracked Pistachio, Spiced Marmalade, and Fossilized Amber Ranger Distress Oxide inks onto the oval, blending as necessary.  I attached that to the back of the card front.  You can see the colors peeking through in this photo.  You can also see the beautiful flowers I created with the Heartfelt Creations Small Classic Petunia Stamps, Dies, and Prills.

The beautiful butterfly on the card front was made with the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Wings Stamp Set and Butterfly Medley Dies.  

I finished the card with adding the “love” sentiment that I cut from Tempting Turquoise card stock using a Hero Arts word die.

I am submitting this card for the Tuesday Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.

What do you think of my Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval-Shaped Card?
