wednesday...Heartfelt Creations-New Release!

I hope that you are all having a great day! Today is the second Wednesday of the month which means it's reveal day over at Heartfelt Creations and this month we are debuting an AMAZING new flower collection!

We are pleased to introduce the Sun Kissed Fleur Collection. This collection includes 2 dies: the Gift Ensemble die (yes, you can make a fancy box with this die!) and the Sun Kissed Fleur die which cuts out 10 different flowers at a time. How's that for value?

The paper collection, called Sun Kissed Collection, comes in vibrant aquas and oranges and fades to light greens and yellows. The paper pack comes with 24 12 x 12 papers that have designs on both sides and are acid & lignen free. There are 2 sheets per design; some are dramatic; others are subdued. You also have a wonderful selection of floral stamps to choose from: fancy tags, an overflowing basket, beautiful patterned backgrounds, borders and corners.

Leave a comment on the Heartfelt Creations blog by May 14th and you will be eligible to win the entire release valued at $180.91

I'm in love with the new flower stamps/dies! You can stamp and cut 10 different size flowers at one time! For this layout, I did it twice and I was able to make 6 different sizes of layered flowers and a bunch of single layer filler flowers!

Here's a close up of the flowers that i made. I wanted to make a neutral wedding layout (yes, you can make these too even though the paper packs include a bunch of bright colors perfect for summer!) so I kept the flowers white. I got to use The Paper Temptress cardstocks for the first time and I got to say, they are amazing for making flowers! I love their cardstock's weight! I added black gala glits to my flowers' centers and the leaves I colored with distress ink.

I handamde my own doily using a light blue The Paper Temptress cardstock and the new background stamp.  I die cut a bunch of semicircles from an earlier HC collection and added them under the light blue cardstock. I machine stitched the edges for a cohesive look.

For the title, I stamped the largest tag from the new Sun Kissed Tags & Basket PreCut Set and fuzzy cut it. I then colored the leaves with a Tim Holtz marker, added some 3D flowers over the stamped ones and stamped a sentiment directly unto the banner.

Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
Using the Martha Stewart large circle cutter, die cut a 7” blue circle and stamp the Sun Kissed Fleur Background Precut Set with Iced Spruce distress ink. Machine stitch all around the edge. Die cut 10 small semi-circle out of white cardstock from the Layered Scalloped Posy Die and add it to the edges of the large blue circle to make a doily. Adhere this handmade doily to the background paper. Double mat your photo and adhere over the center of the page. Tuck in a transparency on the right side of the photo and a die cut border from the new Gift Ensemble Die. On a Paper Tempress white cardstock, stamp the Sun Kissed Fleur PreCut Set twice and the largest tag from the Sun Kissed Tags & Basket PreCut Set. Die cut the flowers using its appropriate die and fuzzy cut the tag. Stamp the sentiment on the tag and color the leaves using the Tim Holtz marker. Adhere over the right bottom corner of the photo. To make the flowers, emboss two of the same size blooms and layer over each other, staggering the petals. Add Gala Glitz to their centers and stickles to their petals. Let them dry. For the leaves, color them with Forrest Moss Distress Ink. Add flowers and leaves over the bottom left corner of the photo after they dry. Die cut a few vine leaves in black and tuck them into the cluster. Stamp and die cut using its appropriate die a bunch of butterflies on vellum paper. Add a blue pearl to their centers and adhere randomly to layout.
