Heartfelt Creations - Sweet Peony Collection - Sweet Peony Garden Gate

Welcome Friends!

Well, it's the second Wednesday of the month and we all know what that means...the launch of a brand new collection!  

Sweetly fragranced, and delicately airy, the graceful peony flower is a breathtaking and dreamy blossom that calls a quiet attention to itself! Lush foliage filled plants bursting forth with tightly wound flower buds among softly ruffled blossoms bring with them a hint of old fashioned romance and delight! Join Heartfelt Creations as we stroll through beautiful peony filled gardens in the new Sweet Peony Collection! Pause, linger and refresh your soul as you amble through a paper collection filled with delightful peony flowers in happy hues of angelic pinks and dark burgundies, set among a refreshing array of leafy greens, sky blues, and sunshine yellows! Soft swirls, gorgeous stripes, and dainty lace like accents come together to create pleasing backdrops for bold peony blossoms, chipping birds and divine window scenes! Three coordinating cling stamp set and die combinations bring the luscious peony flower to the forefront of this gorgeous collection. An assortment of varying sized peony petals and foliage die cut pieces work together to create dimensional and dynamic peony blossoms ready to captivate and take center stage on card fronts, scrapbook layouts and altered art pieces! So, breathe deep, drink in the sweetness of the peony blossoms, and feel free to linger awhile as we take in the gentle beauty of the Sweet Peony Collection!

I'm having lots of fun making the beautiful peonies and today I have a card to share with you that holds the very first peonies I made.
