wednesday...Heartfelt Creations

Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesdays! Today I used playful photos but toned them down by scrapping them with a neutral palette-Black &White!

I used a few older stamps with a few newer stamps for this layout. i love to mix and match collections! I picked up the yellow from the photos to make my flowers and kept the palette very neutral by using B&W and different shades of brown.

I made this gorgeous butterfly for the top right side of the layout and added pearls to its body and antennas. I LOVE how it turned out and will definitely be making more of these in the future!

I made a bunch of flowers using the new tattered blooms stamps. I really think these have become my favorite since its release last month! I used the rose leaves because they are my favorite! :)

I stamped a flourish from the Feather Grass Flourish Precut Set in Antique Linen and went over it and added small liquid pearl drops along the stamped image to create my own bling flourish. I love this technique!

Finally, I printed out my scrabble tiles to spell my title 'young at heart' and I inked the edges before adhering them to my layout. i finished by adding tiny liquid pearl drops to accent the title as well.

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Punch around the page using Martha Stewart’s Cherish stamp set. Adhere the black pattern paper unto a white cardstock. Add a white doily on the left side of the background. Punch a border using Martha Stewart Wild Flowers punch. Trim to 2” and adhere over the doily toward the bottom. Add a small strip of pattern paper over it. Ink all edges. Die cut the border from the Decorative Butterfly/Border set. Add to top right side of the layout and place a strip of the same pattern paper over it. Stamp and die cut a butterfly from the yellow cardstock. Add pearls to its body and lift the wings. Add over the die cut border on the top right side. Double mat your two 3”x4” photos. Add over the doily and strip of papers. Stamp the largest flourish from the Feather Grass Flourish Precut Set in antique linen over the left side of the photos. Go over it and add small liquid pearl drops following the stamped image to make your own pearl bling. Let it dry. For the cluster, stamp and die cut a few sizes of the tattered blooms. Use the smallest two sizes for the smaller flowers and about 6 layers for the large bloom. Stamp and die cut a Bella Rose Leaves Precut Set. Stamp and die cut a few different sizes rose leaves. Build your cluster by adding the flowers to the corner of the photo and then the leaves. Print the scrabble tiles with your printer, ink the edges and add to your layout. Add small liquid pearl drops randomly over the titles for added interest.
