Heartfelt Creations - Debuting the Iris Garden Collection

 Hi and welcome!

The weather is warming up and we should soon see irises everywhere!

Instructions: Card size is 5 x 7”. Using the largest Oval Filigree Frame Die, cut 2x from heavy white cardstock. Before cutting the second one, add 1” two-sided tape to the top of the cardstock. Score that one just under the tape and fold. Remove the tape backing and adhere the two diecuts together to create card base. Using the plain oval die from the set, cut 2x from white cardstock and dry emboss using any embossing folder. Before embossing the one for the inside of the card, stamp the ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ Sentiment from the Thank You Sentiments Cling Stamp set using Archival Deep Purple ink. Adhere the two ovals to the card base.

Stamp the Irises 2x in Deep Purple and 2x in Buttercup Archival inks. Color with the same colors and diecut using the coordinating dies. Add additional color to the backs and edges of the petals and color the beards of the purple ones using Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend marker. Stamp the leaves using Olive ink diecut using the coordinating dies and color the fronts and backs with the same color. Add additional color to the edges. Place the flowers and leaves in the 3D Iris Shaping Mold, spritz with water and run through the diecutting machine. Use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit for additional shaping. Add dries clear adhesive to the beards of the irises and cover with glitter. Use Lion’s Mane glitter on the purple flowers and Orange Crush glitter on the yellow flowers. Pierce holes in all the petals, insert a stamen and adhere the petals together using hot glue.

Stamp the images from the Iris Garden Accents Cling Stamp set on deluxe flower shaping paper using Olive and Deep Purple inks, diecut and add additional color to the images. Shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit.

Using a paint brush, add dries clear adhesive to the flowers, leaves and accents and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter. Adhere the flowers, leaves and accents to the EZ Stem Floral Wire using hot glue and adhere to the card front.
