Heartfelt Creations Wednesday - March Release!

I am so excited to be able to share the NEW March Collection from Heartfelt Creations - Peacock Paisley!

This collection has stunning colors of blue, green, and yellow! The colors and images are just beautiful. This new collection comes with: 6 stamp sets, 1 matching die, a 12x12 paper collection, and a card kit! 

I created a jewel of a card to share with you today.

The colors of this collection, not to mention the use of daisies, paisley, and peacocks make this one of my NEW favorite collections from Heartfelt Creations. I created this card and sent it in early, and it got a tiny screen credit in the video HERE....at 12:09 minutes in the video. {grin} 

I used a new technique (new for me). I colored with Prismacolor pencils onto dark paper! I have never done that before! In fact, I have rarely used my pencils. I purchased them a year ago, and they have barely seen the light of day!

To make this 6" x 5" top-fold card, trim dark blue cardstock to 12" x 5" and score at 6" on the long side. Trim Peacock Paisley paisley print paper to 5 7/8" x 4 7/8 and attach the paper to the card front. Trim dark green Peacock Paisley paper to 4 1/2" x 3 1/2" and mat with dark blue cardstock cut to 4 5/8" x 3 5/8". Attach the panel to the left side of the card, approximately 1/2" from the top. Trim pale green Peacock Paisley paper to 5 1/4" x 2" and mat with dark blue cardstock cut to 5 3/8" x 2 1/8". Attach the panel to the left side of the card, approximately 1" from the left and 1/4" from the top.

Stamp the peacock image from the Peacock Swirls Cling Stamp Set onto dark blue paper with clear embossing ink. Heat emboss the image with white embossing powder. Color the image with colored pencils. Use the Spellbinders Grand Ovals die template to trim out the image. Use the Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals One die template to cut a decorative oval from white cardstock. Attach the image to the decorative oval with foam adhesive. Using foam adhesive, attach the image to the right side of the card front, approximately 1/2" from the top.

Add gems to the centers of the flowers on the stamped image.

Stamp the flowers from the Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp Set onto dark blue cardstock with clear embossing ink. Heat emboss the flowers with white embossing powder. Color the flowers with colored pencils. Use the Delightful Daisy Die to cut out the flowers. Shape them and set aside. 

Stamp the small leaf from the Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp Set twice onto white cardstock with silk green pigment ink. Heat emboss the leaves with clear embossing powder. Color the leaves with colored pencils. Use the Delightful Daisy Die to cut out the leaves. 

Create a flower cluster at the lower left edge of the peacock image, as shown. Trim the leaves apart with scissors and tuck them behind the flowers. Add gems to the centers of the flowers. 

Use water and distress inks to dye 1 yard of natural seam binding. Allow to dry. Iron if desired. Tie a loopy bow with the dyed seam binding and attach it to the upper right corner of the card. Add a gem to the center of the bow.

To decorate the inside of the card, trim white cardstock to 5 7/8" x 4 7/8". Attach the white panel to the inside of the card. Trim a strip of pale green Peacock Paisley 1 1/2" x 4 7/8" and attach the strip to the bottom of the white panel. Trim the "Celebrate" sentiment from the Peacock Paisley paper and add it to the right edge of the pale green strip. Using black ink, stamp the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the Tarnished Gears Cling Stamp Set onto the white panel.
