You can watch this video to help you to learn how to shape the beautiful Plumeria flowers:

My card is 6 X 6.  Make card base out of the watercolor paper for strength and stability; set aside.  Pick one of the 6 X 6 card fronts and using the Circle Dies cut out a circle in the center then cut a smaller opening circle out of a coordinating piece of the paper collection.  Glue these two pieces together and then back with purple cardstock.  I used some of the dimensional tape around the opening to give it a bit of depth.  Next I stamped, cut out and colored the Cockatoo and then added some of the glitter to some of the plumes around it as well as to the Cockatoo.  I slipped it down in between the yellow frame and the purple cardstock.  I added some dimensional tape to the Cockatoo and then glued it down. Next stamp, cut out, color and glitter some of the ferns and fronds and set them aside to dry.  Stamp, cut out, color and shape the flowers.  Add glitter to the edges and set aside to dry.  Next I stamped, cut out and colored the flamingo and added glitter on him and set him aside to dry as well.  I used ink to stain the seam binding and scrunched it and set it aside to dry.  Once dry I tied a bow and adhered to the bottom corner of the card.  I decided on the placement of all the elements and glued them down.  I cut out the word using purple cardstock and then glued it to the upper corner of my card.  My card is now finished.

Now if you would love to see more just head over to the Heartfelt Creations blog to see what the other designers made.  I just know you will be truly inspired!
