Heartfelt Creations - Backyard Blossoms Debut

Hi and Welcome!

Today we're debuting the beautiful new Backyard Blossoms Collection!

Summer brings with it the excitement of a new gardening season, lounging in the open expanse of the backyard and enjoying the beauty of favorite perennial blossoms dancing gently in the warm summer breeze! Among those returning favorites are the attractive, butterfly loving coneflower! Bright and colorful, these pretty flowers come dressed in a wide variety of hues and quietly display their domed centers and soft delicate petals against the backdrops of ornamental grasses and other decorative backyard plantings! Come along with us as we welcome back the summer season with a walk through the Backyard Blossoms Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Brilliantly hued, and filled with a good dose of summer sunshine, the fabulous paper collection showcases happy shades of bright yellows, pretty pinks, luscious lavenders and glorious greens and showcases lovely lace like patterns, elegant swirls and bountiful coneflower blossoms! Included in this jubilant and cheerful assembling are three exquisitely illustrated cling stamps sets with coordinating dies ideal for all of your summer themed paper craft creations! From large coneflower images, ornamental grasses, to smaller backyard blossom accents, these dynamic illustrations are ideal for creating your very own dimensional flower gardens as focal points on card fronts or as accents on scrapbook layouts! So grab your lounge chair, slather on the sunscreen and join us as we kick back and relax in the backyard enjoying our favorite backyard blossoms!

Here's my first card for this collection "Country Garden Birthday".

Instructions: Cut Kraft paper 12” x 6”, score at 6” on the long side and fold to create a 6” x 6” tent fold card. Cut magenta paper from the paper collection 5 7/8” x 5 7/8” and ink the edges with Magenta Hue Ink. Cut green paper from the collection 5 3/4” x 5 3/4” and ink the edges with Buttercup Ink. Adhere the two layers to the card base using dries clear adhesive. Cut another piece of the designer paper 5 7/8” x 5 7/8”, ink the edges and adhere to the inside of the card. Cut the fan shaped die from the magenta paper and again from Kraft paper. Adhere together, ink the edges with Magenta Hue, sponge with dries clear glue, sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear and adhere to the top left corner as shown.
Cut the yellow/gold paper from the collection as follows: one piece 4 3/8” x 3 1/8”, two pieces 7/16” x 4 3/8” and two pieces 7/16” x 3 1/8”. Diecut the center of the larger piece using the Cut Mat Create Die and ink the edges with Vintage Photo ink. Cut a scenic piece of the designer paper 4 3/8” x 3 1/8”, sponge with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with glitter. Adhere all the designer papers to the shadow box.    
Stamp the large coneflower and the border of coneflowers from the Garden's Edge Coneflower Cling Stamp Set, color with the Prismacolor pencils and blend using mineral spirits and Tombow Dual Brush markers. Diecut using the coordination dies. Lightly shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and add glitter using a Quickie Glue Pen. Cut the sentiment from the paper collection using the Luggage and Tags die and cut again from Kraft paper. Adhere together and add glitter.
Adhere the shadow box to the card base as shown. Adhere the border coneflowers (which fit perfectly on the shadow box) and the sentiment to the shadow box using dries clear glue. Adhere the larger coneflower to the side of the shadow box using Double Dots. Make a bow from the magenta sheer ribbon and adhere using a hot glue gun.
