It's that time again when I have to decide which card to share with you from the next shows. Always a difficult decision - as is deciding what demos to do on the shows. There are 2 new collections from Heartfelt Creations and some lovely stamps from Justrite. Today, I think I'll share a sample from the Sunkissed Fleur Collection from Hearfelt Creations. It's not a clever card but I do like how it turned out. There are lots of ideas on how to use this collection on the Hearfelt Creations Blog (you'll need to look at the archive posts as this collection was launched in the US in May I think) including a couple of videos on how to colour them and shape them - well worth a visit. You can see all the products on the shows on the Creative Expressions website here.
Anyway, here's the card -
Coconut White Card using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured them in using Distress Markers - I used Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold & Crushed Olive. I stamped the Sunkissed Fleur Stamp using Coffee Archival and again embossed with Clear Powder. I used the Sunkissed Fleur Die to cut all the flowers out at once (I made a template to help line it up). I have found that it cuts better with an extra pice of card as a shim. I selected the appropriate size flowers to match some of the flowers on the border and coloured them in to match. I shaped them, glued them into place with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue and added some Cream Pearls. I inked around the edges of the background with Scattered Straw Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon and added a Fancy Pearl Embellishment.
Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.
For those of you who like to buy from my Amazon Store (Thank You!), I won't be stocking any of these stamps as it's very hit and miss as to whether I can load these into my store. I can never tell till I try it! It's too risky for me in case I can't - I still have Justrite Christmas Stamps left. See this post if you're interested.
I'll be back tomorrow with a card from the Burst of Splendour collection. Before that, I'll be back later today with the winner of the Spellbinders Dear Old Dad die set. Tracey Singleton - I haven't heard from you to clain your prize. I will re-draw on Monday if I don't hear from you.
Thanks for stopping by.
