Heartfelt Creations Wednesday and the Release of the Beary Fun Retreat Collection....

Long days filled with sunshine begin to fade and the crisp evening breezes begin to call for cozy wool knit sweaters as the fall season slowly ushers out the lazy days of summer! Along with the falling leaves and a last surge of floral blossoms, autumn brings with it a more relaxed and reflective way of life and a reminder that winter will soon be around the corner. Autumn also brings with it a fun that only autumn can bring…playing in crisp piles of fallen leaves, picnics with warm beverages, cozy evenings spent around the campfire and exploring fields filled with rows and rows of sunflowers bowing their heads giving way to the season! Even the animals of the forest recognize and celebrate the subtle arrival of autumn, spending their last few days before hibernation playing and making preparations for the arrival of the upcoming winter season. Come along with us and join in our fall festivities as we go on one final fun filled retreat with the Beary Fun Retreat Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Filled with delightful and captivating illustrations of adorable bears, this autumn themed collection is sure to appeal to all ages! Perfect for celebrating an array of occasions, this fun loving assembling of stamps, dies and decorative papers will bring a whimsical and lighthearted touch to all of your paper crafting creations. The dynamic paper collection boasts a color palette filled with beautiful tones of burnt oranges, rusty reds, midnight blues, along with leaf like greens and golden yellows all mixed with checkered plaids, decorative stripes and gorgeous imagery of blooming sunflowers and falling leaves. Three sets of detailed cling stamps with coordinating dies allow you to join in the fall themed fun of a charismatic bear family enjoying their last retreat before winter sets in. Whether sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows near an adorable treehouse, enjoying songs strummed out quietly on guitar, or filling up on delightful meals of honey, these cute images are ideal for embellishing all of your fall themed cards and scrapbook layouts! So throw on a cozy sweater, grab a cup of hot cocoa and join in the fun as we enjoy one last “beary” fun filled autumn retreat!

You can watch a video on making sunflowers here: 

Instructions:  My card is 7 X 7.  I made the card base using the watercolor paper because of the size and for stability.  Decide on which window box you want to use and cover it with the paper collection.  Cut one of the card fronts to fit on the back panel and glue it down. Glue the box to the front of the card leaving the right side unglued so you can slip in the tags later. Next using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink I stamped the sunflowers, leaves and bear onto watercolor paper.  Using various Distress Inks I watercolored all the elements.  Add the Prills to the flower centers and set aside to dry.  I used Glossy Accents to cover the ladybug and set it aside to dry.  Once everything  is dry, decide on the placement and glue them down.  Next using the tag dies cut out the tags and the backing and glue them together.  Add the ribbon and slide them into the side of the box. Next find a sentiment and back it with the navy blue paper and using the dimensional tape adhere it to the top of the card.

WOW..beautiful details on the Autumn card. And your beginning sentences sure describe how the season is. My favorite time of the year. Lots of memories of when my 2 sons were young. Like the idea of the tags and that little ladybug!!
The wonderful Sunflowers really give your card a great pop of color too. Enjoy what's left of the week.
