Debuting the Sweet Magnolia Collection from Heartfelt Creations

Good morning my friends.  We have been having some wonderful Spring weather here in East Tennessee and everything is beginning to bloom!  This brand new collection from Heartfelt Creations reminds me of how grateful I am to live where I do.  I have a Magnolia tree in my yard and when it blooms it makes my heart sing.

Instructions: My finished card size is 6" x 6". I used the Flower Shaping Paper to make the card base. Cover with one of the card fronts from page 2A of the paper collection. Using the circle die cut three pieces of heavy white cardstock and glue together to pop up the center then cover with a piece of page 12B of the paper. Glue this circle to the other three. Using a dauber and Magenta Hue Ink, color the edges of this dimensional circle. Add glitter to this pink center circle and allow to dry. Adhere to the card front.

Stamp the flower petals with New Sprout ink and cut out using the coordinating dies. Stamp the leaves with Fern Green and color using Leaf Green and Magenta Hue then cut out using the coordinating dies. Lay the leaves and flowers onto the 3D mold and spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Turn them out onto your desk to dry. Using the Flower Shaping Kit add a bit more shaping to the flower petals. Layer the petals together and glue using hot glue. I twisted the smallest flower petals and cut off the bottom of them then glued to the flower centers. I added a bit of Toffee Crunch to give a more realistic look. I glittered the flowers and set them aside to dry. Now go over the edges of the leaves with Fern Green ink to give a bit more dimension and set aside to dry. Arrange the flowers and petals around the center circle and glue down using the hot glue gun.

Stamp the sentiment onto one of the tags from the paper collection using Tuxedo Black ink. Adhere to the circle using dimensional tape. The card is now finished.

Oh, my! I see many beautiful Magnolias in your future! I'm most taken with those leaves, so delicately colored, but I also see how the Green Sprout ink gives the blooms the perfect dainty touch, too. So gorgeous, Glenda!
