Heartfelt Creaions Wednesday...Introducing the Under The Sea Collection

I always dreamed of retiring to the beach where I could spend my days strolling along the waters edge and dipping my toes in the surf.  Obviously that didn’t happen.  I’m in the hills of East Tennessee and a good distance from the ocean.  I love where I live, but some days I long for that stroll I spoke of.  This new collection can take me away for a visit when my soul longs for the tides.



You can take a walk along the edge of the deep blue sea, feel the warm sand between You toes and breathe in the salty air.  Balmy breezes tousle your hair and toy with the exotic hibiscus flower behind your ear as you stoop to snatch a lustrous seashell that has been swept onto the beach with the incoming tide. Cares and worries melt away because life really is better at the seaside.  The cool, crystal clear water lapping at the shoreline beckons you and you cannot resist the sudden urge to dive right in.  Before you know it you have been submerged into a magical underwater world where you find yourself settling on a jagged reef surrounded with burnished coral, glassy seashells and mystical sea creatures more beautiful than your imagination could ever conjure.  A peek behind the coral and waltzing seaweed finds you nose to nose with a school of fish gliding every so gently with their long, graceful flowing tails and glistening scales decorated with an abundance of shimmering and alluring colors.  Delicate sea horses and magnificent jelly fish dart and flit among the dancing aquatic plant life as to entertain you with a glorious underwater show being performed just for you.  Welcome to “Under the Sea”, the newest collection by Heartfelt Creations.  This water themed assembling of magnificent papers, stamps and dies will have you creating ravishing underwater scenes perfect for documenting your seaside vacations, ocean themed altered art pieces or salt water card creations.   The tranquil color palette of calming blues, greens and teals, paired with golden yellows, subtle shades of pinks, purples, corals and reds are sure to soothe your soul.  Creating projects with a tropical flair that will “make a splash” has been made simple with decorative papers boasting mesmerizing patterns of sea shells, florals, delicate swirls and alluring hibiscus blossoms.  The intricate, detailed stamp illustrations of underwater sea creatures, glistening seashells, and exotic hibiscus flowers are sublime for shaping and creating dimensional elements adding a realistic touch to any underwater themed paper craft design.  We invite you to take the plunge and come along with us on an underwater adventure as we explore Under the Sea!

Instructions:
My card size is 6" x 6".  Make card base and cut a piece of the paper collection to cover the front of the card.  Stamp, cut and color flowers then moisten with a bit of water and use a stylus to shape.  Set aside to dry.  Once dry I colored a bit of Flower Soft and glued that to the stamen.  I added a strip of lace on the bottom of the card then found a piece of coral on the paper and cut it out with the die and glued it over the lace piece.  I found the tag that said "You Inspire Me" and fussy cut it and then matted a coordinating piece of the paper under it. I used dimensional tape to the back of the tag and then adhered it to the card. Next I placed the flowers, buds and leaves where I wanted them and glued them down.  

I stamped, colored and cut out the little turtle and then added glitter.  I used a stylus to sort of curve him to give him some dimension then I used dimensional tape to pop him up a bit.
