Welcome to my last post for 2017. It is Karan Gerber here to host the blog for one last time for 2017.   It just so happens that my last post for the year ends up on New Year’s Eve and today I am sharing with you a card using some fabulous stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations.Blazing Poppy Collection by Heartfelt Creations I incorporated paper from the Blazing Poppy paper collection   to create this card and used inks from Ranger and Clearsnap ColorBox. Here is a peek at my card I put together for you today: I wanted my sunflowers to look festive so I colored my flowers using Rose coral chalk ink from ColorBox and used Aged Mahogany on the tipsBest Wishes Card Designed by Karan Gerber | Featuring Heartfelt Creations | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine #cardmaking #stamping #scrapbooking The card base size is a 8.5 x 11 piece of card folded in half I cut two papers from the collection for the base and I distress them, I searched for a A2 panel that I felt would coordinate and i matted that with white Super Stock  from Creative Scrapbooker.Best Wishes Card Designed by Karan Gerber | Featuring Heartfelt Creations | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine #cardmaking #stamping #scrapbookingHere I used the Botanic Window die in a coordinating paper, and used Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear on the edges to add some extra glitter. I used Glue Gloss to apply my glitter.  It is pretty portable and a quick drying.Best Wishes Card Designed by Karan Gerber | Featuring Heartfelt Creations | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine #cardmaking #stamping #scrapbooking Now lets get started on the flowers and leaves, stamp the classic sunflower out on the Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock using coffee archival ink; color centers with Ranger Ink Expresso; and then use Rose Coral chalk ink on petals and final step is to highlight them with Aged Mahogany Distress InkBest Wishes Card Designed by Karan Gerber | Featuring Heartfelt Creations | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine #cardmaking #stamping #scrapbooking In total I used 13 flowers for this best wishes card, but did not use any of the smaller ones that the die cuts out. Once i was done coloring them, I pierced the center to make room for the stamens, then I used the 3D Flower Basics Mold; the sizes in the mold are not perfect for this flower, but it still lends to some fabulous texture, i had to run this through a few times to get all my flowers completed.Best Wishes Card Designed by Karan Gerber | Featuring Heartfelt Creations | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine #cardmaking #stamping #scrapbookingPut a few together off-setting the petals and add your stamensBest Wishes Card Designed by Karan Gerber | Featuring Heartfelt Creations | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine #cardmaking #stamping #scrapbookingLink for stamens – CLICK HERE   I then used my glue gloss and added some crystal clear glitter to the stamens and petals.Best Wishes Card Designed by Karan Gerber | Featuring Heartfelt Creations | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine #cardmaking #stamping #scrapbookingIt sure gives a nice detail and finished look to the flower. Color your leaves using peeled paint distress ink from Ranger and a finger dauber. Once done coloring, lightly mist the leaves from the back, and then mold using your molding mat and stylusBest Wishes Card Designed by Karan Gerber | Featuring Heartfelt Creations | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine #cardmaking #stamping #scrapbooking Best Wishes Card Designed by Karan Gerber | Featuring Heartfelt Creations | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine #cardmaking #stamping #scrapbookingLook for a Best wishes sentiment in the paper collection, and assemble your card.Best Wishes Card Designed by Karan Gerber | Featuring Heartfelt Creations | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine #cardmaking #stamping #scrapbooking I think these are some of my favorite flowers this year and they work perfect on the Best Wishes card.  I love how the crystal clear looks like the stamens have a snowy look to them.
Here is my finished cardBest Wishes Card Designed by Karan Gerber | Featuring Heartfelt Creations | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine #cardmaking #stamping #scrapbookingFrom all of us here at Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, Best Wishes, to you and your families

    Stunning! I just got this flower mold but haven’t used it yet due to life happening! Hopefully I will get a chance to play with it today!
    Your flowers are spectacular and I absolutely adore your beautiful card! TFS!

  3. That is one beautiful card. Wow! I don’t own any Heartfelt stamps or dies but I sure wish I did. Love that flower embossing! Nice texture.

  4. Your card is amazing! Every detail and part of it is so perfectly done. I love the shaped flowers and the lovely poppy scene behind them. The ice crystals make them look so magical.
    Thank you so much for sharing your work! 🙂

    OMG! What a beautiful card. I can’t wait until I can afford all the bits so I can make cards like this. This is a huge STATEMENT card. Whoever gets a card like this had better frame it. Absolutely lovely. What a way to end out the year. May 2018 be richer, kinder and healthier for all of us.

    I can not believe these are paper flowers. They are absolutely gorgeous. Need to learn what that flower mold thing is. “Ran it through” what?
