Welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!!

I think my title says it all!  This is my first post for my third term with the Heartfelt Creations design team and I am super excited to be back among friends!  As you know I love this company and believe in what they are doing.  Their stamps are top quality and such beautiful images and dies and the flowers stamps and dies are simply amazing.  Can you tell I'm  happy to be back?

That being said, here is my first card:

HCD 727 Vintage Floret Die

Other Supplies: Canson watercolor paper, white card stock, Spellbinders dies (Std. Circles Large, Lacey Circles and Venetian Motifs) Ranger Distress Inks in Scattered Straw, Forest Moss  and Victorian Velvet, glue, Shimmer Spray, Scor-Tape, Wooden Skewer, Paper Blossoms Tool Kit, piercing mat, Memento Ink in brown and black
Instructions: Card Size 6” X 6”
Make card base out of watercolor paper, I use this for added stability.  Next I cut a piece of the design paper in a 6” X 6” size.  I sprayed this with the shimmer spray and left to dry.  Once dry, I adhered it to the card base.  Next I stamped my sentiment on a piece of watercolor paper and cut out using the Lacey die.  I created a frame using two of the circle dies and a piece of the paper from the stack.  I edged the frame with distress ink. Glue this frame to the sentiment piece and then adhere it to the card base.  Now it is time to work on the flowers.  I stamped and cut out the flowers from white card stock; then I used the distress inks to color the petals.  I sprayed the petals with shimmer spray and wound them around a skewer and then I pinched the petals to give them a more natural look.  As the petals began to dry I added more of the darker color of ink to the edges of the petals because the spray caused the ink to run and blend a little and I wanted the darker tones.  When the petals are all dry I use the spongy piercing mat and the embossing tools to shape them a little more.  Glue them together and set aside to dry.  While your flowers are drying stamp the leaves and cut them out as well as the swirls.  Position the flowers and the leaves and swirls where you like them and glue down.  I think the papers and the flowers give this card a soft elegant feel.
