And since it's the 2nd of December - we have a TWO giveaways planned! One here on my blog and on the Hero Arts blog so make sure to visit both to enter to win. You can find our more about the contest at the end of this post!
Here's a little card + brooch that I whipped up! See the flower on the card? It's also a brooch!
The card has a cute little brooch on it that can also be detached and the recipient can wear it after they receive the card! A card + gift in one! What could be better?!
Here are the supplies you'll need: Hero Arts Flower Blossom Border set (CL223), Hero Arts Smooth Gemstones (CH153), Hero Arts Holiday Mixed Notecards (PS539), Claudine Hellmuth Studio Sticky Back Canvas, Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paints in: Painterly Pink, Landscape Green and Modern Red, Claudine Hellmuth Studio paint brush set, Ranger Inkessentials Non-stick Craft sheet, Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi Medium, a pin back, Ranger Archival Ink in black, Perfect Pearls, Perfect Medium Pen, and the Cuttle bug!
OK! Let's get started!
First, paint a sheet of Sticky Back Canvas using Painterly Pink, Landscape Green and Modern Red. Set aside to dry. Or speed drying using a heat tool.
Stamp image from Hero Arts Flower Blossom Border set (CL223) using Ranger Archival Ink in Black on each color stripe you made on the Sticky Back Canvas.
Flip your sheet of Sticky Back Canvas over, remove the paper backing revealing the sticky backing. Cut a piece of decorative fabric and place it onto the sticky side of the Sticky Back. Smooth to make sure there is good contact!
Now that the fabric is on the back, go ahead and cut out the flowers from Sticky Back Canvas
Glue all the layers together using Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi Medium in Matte. here I also glued on a small circle of the dotted fabric in the center.
You can curl the ends of your flower to give it dimension, just roll it over a paint brush handle and it will hold the shape!Glue on the pin back to the back of your flower using Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi Medium in Matte. make a big blob, squish the pin back into the medium, then smooth it out using your paint brush.
Here's a closeup of the pin back glued on with the Multi Medium. Once this dries it will dry clear and it will be on there forever! Make sure to let it dry all the way. it will only have a secure hold once fully dry.
Stamp an image from the Hero Arts sheet a couple of times onto a green card from the Hero Arts Holiday Mixed Notecards (PS539) Add stems using a black pen. Then set aside, we'll come back to this card later!
Paint another section of Sticky Back Canvas using Modern Red. Allow to dry.
Once dry, run the Sticky Back Canvas through a Cuttlebug using one of the embossing folders
Outline some of the embossed areas using the Ranger Perfect Pen in clear
Dust lightly with Perfect Pearls to add a metallic shine! Ohh pretty!!
Trim and stick to the card you stamped earlier
hold your pin up to your card and make marks where the pin will go. Punch these with an 1/8 punch then thread your pin through your card and you are done!
Pair with a red envelope and send to a friend! I hope you enjoyed the tutorial!

I have followed your blog for a while but this is the first time I have commented. I can't wait to try some of your products - I am thinking of a lot of great ways I could use the sticky back canvas.
Always be creative when in art, life or love. Jodi Reeves

I hope to take a class with you at Angela's soon.
I love that the recipient gets a card and a gift all in one.

I used work I did in one of your workshops in the header of my blog, so even a beginner can do good stuff following Claudine's examples and inspiration!
I Love your paints and canvas and the Brushes are the BEST!!!
Thanks for a chance t0o win some FUN!
this is my first time on your blog, but certainly won't be the last!
This is a great idea for those folks who you'd like to just give a little something extra to. THanks!
What a cute little card. I love the idea of the detachable pin. Such a sweet gift with a card idea. The colors you used are so bright and cheery. Your canvas looks like it is very easy to work with and I love the way you've lined the back with coordinating material. (I was wondering how the pin was going to work with the sticky back). I saw you on the Hero Arts blog and stopped by to say I really liked the mini canvas on canvas in the picture of you and Lisa. Too Cool!
I just found out about you yesterday and fell in love with your Poppets. I immediately ordered your collage book and also pre-ordered your scrapbooking book. So excited to get them and get my creativity re-invigorated. I enjoy creating collages and incorporating them into my scrapbooking projects. I think your projects are delightful and I've gleaned so many new ideas just by visiting your website. More power to you!
Thanks for the great TUT & sweet giveaway!
Pleez put my name in for the draw.
I really do wish you'd write a children's book. Or a book for crafting kids. I'd love to be able to introduce my daughter to your whimsical style and have her be inspired by it.
It was soooo easy to follow and the end product was STUNNING!!!!
Thanks so much for sharing!
