Ornate Sleds

Creating an explosion card with the Heartfelt Creations sled, is only limited to your imagination. All you need to do is to learn the basics for this design and then fill up the spaces with your own inspirations and creativity!  If you’ve never made 3D cards before, this is an excellent place to start. It looks time-consuming but after the first 3D card like this one, the next one is easier and faster to put together.  You can use a ruler and scissor to cut your strips inside the sled and score the crease lines, or you can use a score board, whichever you prefer. Either way, the results will be a fantastic card for little effort!  I’ve made a few pop up box cards using just a 12" x 12" cardstock but this sled with the pop up tree and presents is surprisingly simple to make and yet still rewardingly impressive to give to a loved one.  

This sled is able to fold down just like any explosion card.  Basically, I used the same technique for this card and created a tutorial on the measurements using this Heartfelt Creations Celebrate The Season Ornate Sled.


This tutorial is for making the first sled with the presents.  Basically, follow these instructions for making the second sled using the Heartfelt Creations Pampered Pooch collection of dies and stamps.  

Heartfelt Creations Celebrate The Season Ornate Sled 

Using the Heartfelt Creations Celebrate The Season Ornate Sled stamp and die set, emboss two sleds with NUVO Silver Moonlight Glitter embossing powder and die cut.  I like using 110 lb weight cardstock for sturdiness for cards like this one.  If you don't have this heavier weight of cardstock, cut out two extra sleds to glue behind the embossed sleds.

Cut out 10 poinsettia flowers and 4 holly leaves using the Heartfelt Creations Celebrate The Season Ornate Sled die set.  I colored theses poinsettias and holly leaves with Copic Markers and used my fingers to pinch the center of each petal for the poinsettias and holly leaves.  Glue two poinsettias together and apply glue to the center of each poinsettia and add US Artquest Mini Prills - You Had Me At Yellow.  Glue the poinsettias with holly leaves on the sled.

Cut out the label "Enjoy"found in the Heartfelt Creations Celebrate The Season paper.

Tutorial For Support for Inside:  

Step 1:  Cut two white card stock strips 1/2" wide and 2 1/2" long. Cut three white card stock strips 1/2" and 3 1/2".  (NOTE:  Most explosion cards have two rows rather than three.  If you don't plan on adding less toppers, I would suggest only cutting out two white card stock strips than three).   Score 1/2" on each side end of the four strips of paper. 

Fold left on one end and fold right on the other end of each strip.  Glue or use 1/2" wide Scor Tape to each end of the strips.  

I like folding the strips down first (photo below) and then apply adhesive such as glue or Scor Tape before sticking the last strip.

Step 2 Gluing Support to Sled:  Adhere the inside support of the card to the sled using glue or two-side adhesive tape.  

When the inside support is glued, the card will be able to fold down even after the toppers.

Step 3 Toppers:   Stamps the presents using the Heartfelt Creations Celebrate The Season - Gift Wrapped Presents stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and die cut using the die set.  Color the presents with Copic Markers.

Heartfelt Creations Snow Kissed Spruce stamp

Using dark green cardstock, stamp the medium sized pine tree using the Heartfelt Creations Snow Kissed Spruce stamp with Memento Tuxedo black ink and die cut using the Heartfelt Creations Snow Kissed Frolicky Frosty and Spruce die set.  To attach the presents and tree to support frame on the inside of the sled, cut out 9 strips of white cardstock measuring 1/2" wide and 3" long.  Depending on the size of each present, adhere the end of each strip behind the present and tree.  Before permanently adhering each present and tree to the inside, I use double-side tape that isn't too sticky kept arranging the presents and tree to the support until I got the arrangement I wanted as well as making sure the card is still able to fold.  When I was satisfied with the arrangement, I used permanent adhesive to the ends of the strip and glued each one to the support frame on the inside of the sled.  I cut off any strip that extended below the support frame.

I hope you'll give this card a go. It might be a little bit of a challenge but it's definitely worth the effort.

Free Hand Planner Page with Netra

Hello everyone! 
As the year comes to a close we may not need
as much space in our planners to write to do's. Simply because 
we are taking breaks to spend time with family and shop and rest. 
So I created this page with blank paper. 
So I used some die from the My Prima Planner Die Set to add some color around my holes. 

Now, I added a die cut word from Tim Holtz, you can use a stamps or print out, or hand write.

And to finish it off I added stamps from My Prima Planner and a sticker form the Shopaholic sticker set. 
This was so fun and quick. I love that I have lots of room to write but if I only 
write a few things there is still so much decoration to fill the page. 
Have fun panning the rest of your 2017 ! 

Thank you for visiting

 snowflakes from multipul LF Stamp Sets with LF Yeti white Ink.
I die cut the slopes using LF Stitched Hills and the slope from the 
LF Shadow Box. I also glittered them. Circles were cut
 using the LFStitched Circles. Hope you enjoyed these cards.

Merry Christmas To You

 Welcome back and Nancy Hill, design team member for The Rubber Buggy.  Take a look at this gorgeous Tattered Lace Merry Christmas Vintage die at The Rubber Buggy and also on sale while supplies last. I highly recommend that you use my tutorial, click HERE,  on cutting this die out with cardstock behind the die and fabric softener sheet behind the cardstock to take the pieces out of this die cut or keep these pieces that will stick on the fabric softener sheet to insert in another Tattered Lace Merry Christmas Vintage cut out with a different color.  Previously, I had cut out this die using fabric softener sheet behind white cardstock and then cut it again with red glitter cardstock.  I peeled off the pieces and glued it with the red glitter cardstock die cut. 
I glued the Merry Christmas with spray adhesive glue and stuck the die cut on embossed shimmer cardstock using the Crafter Companion Lace 3D embossing folder.  The beautiful patterned paper is from the Heartfelt Creations All Glammed Up paper

I used the Scor-Tape 1" wide, to adhere the patterned paper on the Bazzill Peppermint cardstock.  On smaller cards, I will adhere layers with glue but for larger cards like this one above, I use Scor-Tape to keep it from warping.  I love the Scor-Tape for adhering bows and ribbons to my card.  If I am making a paper crafted project, I prefer using Scor-Tape over glue.

Bazzill cardstock is quality paper and the colors are just beautiful.  Heartfelt Creations has beautiful patterned paper and I love using it since the stamps and dies coordinate with this top-quality paper. 

I can't wait to see the possibilities that you will create making your card with the gorgeous Tattered Lace Merry Christmas Vintage die.  You can purchase these dies and supplies from The Rubber Buggy on-line store.
Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Birthday wishes with Stamping Bella

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today using lots of products from the Rubber Buggy Store.  If you haven't visited the store recently, you are missing out on a lot of fun products.

This lovely Stamping Bella stamp is Posh has a Present.    I colored her with assorted Copic Markers before fussy cutting her.

Using Heartfelt Creations Decorative Oval Die, I added it to card created with Lawn Fawn's Knock on Wood Petite Paper Pad.  A die cut black oval was added to the center.

Posh was added to the card with foam adhesives and the phrase was added between her legs.

Isn't she a great birthday card?
