Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood Release Day...

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Release Day! Please stay with me as this is a very long post because I have a lot of information to share with you this morning.  So go get your favorite morning drink and let's begin!

Each year Heartfelt Creations puts out a Design Team Call!  If you think you might have an interest for being on their team, you should follow this link for all the information on applying: I would also like to ask that you to go over to Heartfelt Creations and vote for me to remain on their amazing team.  The link for this is here:  I would really appreciate your vote!

Heartfelt Creations invites you to usher in the spring season with the new Flowering Dogwood Collection!  Immerse yourself in this newest springtime assembling of designer papers, divinely detailed cling stamps and coordinating dies steeped with beautiful meanings and symbolism perfect for the Easter Season!  The dogwood tree is surrounded by a mesmerizing legend within the Christian faith…once the size of a mighty oak tree it was chosen to be used to construct the cross on which Jesus was to be crucified.  The tree became unhappy with its purpose and would never again grow large enough to ever build another cross.  Its branches would become narrow and crooked and no longer suitable for construction.  The delicate dogwood flower itself is a wonderful symbol of the Easter season…four petals that resemble the shape of a cross, the center laid as a crown of thorns, at the tip of each petal an indent resembling nail punctures, and a reddish hue around those indents resembling the blood of Jesus.  Soft and pastel in coloring, this newest paper collection reveals beautiful springtime shades of pinks, peaches, and greens which set stunning backdrops for scripted lettering and graceful swirls, while darker hints of blues and blacks bring out the gorgeous detail and coloring of the showy dogwood florals.  Bountiful blossom filled branches, peaceful white doves and hillside chapels are just a few of the beautiful illustrations found within the cling stamp sets!  Assemble the perfect dimensional dogwood flower using the varying sized petals within the Flowering Dogwood Cling Stamps Set and die cut using the coordinating dies.  The ideal collection to send out springtime and Easter wishes to friends and family!

You can watch this video to learn how to do the different shaping techniques on the Dogwood flowers:

My card size is 5 X 7.  Make card base and set aside.  Cut the Spellbinders Elegant Labels 4 out of a piece of the paper collection and glue to the card base. Next cut out the Eyelet Oval Die using white cardstock and a piece of contrasting paper from the collection.  Glue these two pieces together and add the half pearls.  Use dimensional tape and dots to adhere the oval piece to the card front. Next I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and cut it to make a banner.  Ink the edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. Adhere to the card front with dimensional tape.  Stamp, emboss and cut out the flower petals.  I used Rhubarb Stalk Memento Ink and the Dove Blender pen to add just a bit of color to the outer edge of the petals.  I shaped the petals using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit and set them aside.  I took the prills and ran them over the Guacamole ink pad just to give them a bit darker appearance and then glued them to the centers of the flower petals.  I stamped the leaves onto a green piece of the paper collection and cut them out.  Shape the leaves and set aside.  I stamped the dove onto watercolor paper and cut out.  I used the London Fog Memento Ink to shade the dove to give it some definition and then I added glitter and set it aside to dry.  When everything is dry add the dove and then the flowers and leaves and set aside to dry.  Your card is finished.

You can watch this video to learn how to do the different shaping techniques on the Dogwood flowers:

Box dimensions are 2 3/4 X 2 1/2 X 3 3/4 Tall. I found this box on YouTube:

Follow instructions for making the box.  Once you have the box lying flat decorate the panels before you glue together.  I cut the front and back panels and stamped the images using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I then used Memento Ink and the Dove Blender Pen to color.  I also stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black.  Now glue the panels front, back and sides onto the box form as well as the top panel of the box.  Next I stamped the flower and doves on watercolor paper.  I embossed the flower petals and then cut out the doves and flowers. Next color the doves and flowers.  Now stamp the leaves onto a piece of the paper collection.  Cut them out as well as the flower centers.  Shape the flowers and leaves and then add the centers and set aside to dry.  I also took the Lettuce Entertain You Prills and rubbed them over the Guacamole ink pad to give just a shade darker color and add this to the centers of the flowers.  Set aside to dry. Now assemble the box.  Shape the doves and add glitter and let them dry.  Once dry, add dimensional tape to the doves and add some of the flowers and leaves to the side panels of the box.  Next I decided where I wanted the flowers and leaves on the top panel of the box and glued them down.  I took the 1” hole punch and cut a half moon out for a finger hold on the front panel of the box.

Hi Glenda,

Every time I see one of your creations - you just WOW me! I love the card and the box. I will definitely go vote for you to stay on the Design Team!

The Color Bursts were fun. It takes very little product to create something. Unfortunately the store didn't have any for sale at the time. Bad me ordered from Amazon.....
