Heartfelt Creations - Wild Aster Collection Debut

Fall is in the air and today we're launching the beautiful Wild Aster Collection!

Warm summer breezes have begun to cool, and daylight hours have started to shorten…tall grasses rustle in the wind preparing to make their way to seed, and leaves slowly begin their tumble to the ground to insulate the earth for the cooler upcoming season. As summer begins to fade, and the bright hues of heat loving florals dim, it is then that the graceful aster takes the limelight and becomes the crowning glory of the autumn season, lending it one last burst of color with their blends of pretty purples, pleasing pinks, and blazing blues! Join us as we bid summer farewell and celebrate the arrival of the autumn season with the Wild Aster Collection from Heartfelt Creations! Take a walk among the last perennial wildflowers of the waning summer season as you delve into a paper collection draped in light and airy asters hued in vibrant fuchsias and pretty purples, all accented with glorious greens, precious pinks and tranquil creams. Enjoy alluring backgrounds filled with dainty lace like accents, grand vintage style stripes, and beautiful brocades, all ready to set the stage for captivating aster arrangements! A lovely assembling of cling stamp sets filled with pleasing aster illustrations unite to create pretty wildflower sprays and elegant bouquets, while a stunning collection of beautifully illustrated aster petal images, when paired with the corresponding dies, join together harmoniously to create light, airy, dimensional aster flowers perfect for creating elegant autumn inspired floral clusters! So, grab your sweater and join us for one last walk through the garden as we take in the simplicity and beauty of the glorious wild aster!

Here's the Crisscross card I created for the debut!

Decorated crisscross card is 6" x 8". Start with a 12" x 12" sheet of Pearl White Metallic Cardstock and cut it in half. Score both pieces at 6" on the long side and adhere the two pieces together with dries clear adhesive so that you have a double center and a right and left flap. Use a paper trimmer to cut the right flap diagonally in half from the score line to the bottom right corner. Cut the left flap from the score line to the bottom left corner. Splitcoaststampers has a great crisscross card tutorial with photos here

Cut a 6 x 6 panel from Wild Aster Paper Collection, trim to 5 7/8" x 5 7/8", ink the edges using Archival Vibrant Fuchsia ink and adhere to the 6" x 6" section of the card. Cut a piece of dark fuchsia paper from the collection 5 7/8" x 5 7/8", cut in half diagonally, ink the edges and adhere to the two crisscross panels. Cut a 6 x 6” panel from the paper collection, trim to 5 3/4" x 5 3/4", cut in half diagonally, ink the edges with Vibrant Fuchsia Ink and adhere to the fuchsia designer paper. Use dries clear adhesive to seal the bottom of the pocket closed. Cut the Lacy Diamond Die from Pearl White cardstock and ink the edges with Vibrant Fuchsia ink. Using the third largest die from the Diamond Basics die set, cut from fuchsia designer paper and ink the edges. Stamp the sentiment from Special Birthday Sentiments Cling Stamp Set on pearl white cardstock using Vibrant Fuchsia ink, diecut using the plain die from the Lacy Diamond set and ink the edges. Adhere the two small diamonds together using dries clear adhesive and then adhere to the Lacy Diamond using dimensional squares. Adhere to the card front using dimensional squares.

Click on my name below to see more photos of the pocket insert. To create the pocket insert, cut white pearl cardstock 5 3/4" x 5 1/2". Cut the fuchsia designer paper to 5 5/8 x 5 3/8”, ink the edges and adhere to the white cardstock. Choose one of the 6" x 6" panels from the paper collection, cut it down to 5 1/2" x 5 1/4", ink the edges with Vibrant Fuchsia ink and adhere to the fuchsia designer paper. Cut fuchsia paper to 5 5/8" x 5 3/8" ink the edges and adhere to the back of the insert. Stamp the sentiment from Just For You Sentiments cling stamp and the spray from Wild Aster Spray cling stamp set on pearl white cardstock using Vibrant Fuchsia ink and adhere to the back of the insert. Use the Decorative Medallion outer die to cut two pieces of the designer paper. Adhere them back to back at the top of the insert panel. Diecut two of the Decorative Medallion dies from pearl white cardstock and adhere, one to the front and one to the back. Cut the “Have a Beautiful day” sentiment from the designer paper, cut fuchsia designer paper 3 1/8 x 1/8”, ink the edges of both, adhere together and adhere to the pocket insert. Place the insert inside the pocket. 

Stamp Wild Asters on Deluxe Flower Shaping paper using Vibrant Fuchsia ink. Color with Magenta Hue ink, diecut using the coordinating dies and shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Use three petals for the larger flowers and use two petals for the smaller flowers making sure to offset them. Using dries clear adhesive, add Lemon Chiffon Prills to the flower centers. Stamp the Wild Aster leaves on Deluxe Flower Shaping paper using Archive Olive ink, color using Leaf Green ink, diecut using the coordinating die, add color around the edges using Olive ink and shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Sponge the flowers and the leaves with dries clear adhesive, sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter and adhere using the hot glue gun as shown.

Top Tip: Use the heat It Tool to shrink glue strings.

Stamp the border from the Butterfly Dreams Border Cling Stamp set on Flowerite Vellum using Frost White ink, sprinkle with WOW Clear Sparkle embossing powder, heat set using the Heat It tool, color using Vibrant Fuchsia ink and diecut using the coordinating die. Use a scissor to cut out one of the butterflies, shape and adhere as pictured. 

Use dries clear glue and crystal ultrafine transparent glitter to add sparkle to the designs on the papers.
