***Heartfelt Creations Wednesday ***featuring Swirlydoos...

The new Bella Rose stamp sets and dies from Heartfelt Creations are so beautiful and so versatile. From cardmakers to scrap pages to altered art. They work so well . In this LO I have used some stamps from the new set and combined older stamps and they blend so well. I didnt have to place a title on the LO, as the gorgeous backround stamp had the words right in it. Perfect as I am sooo bad with placing titles on my layouts. Once again I am using my current Swirlydoos kit to complete this layout. Grandma's Garden. The picture is my sisters granddaughter Nikki sitting on a park bench . I added the sweet butterfly wings in Photoshop. My sweet little redhead.
I have to confess, the design of this layout is the Design of my Swirlydoos Design Team Sister Camilla Eckman. She did a wonderful tutorial on layering and clustering. I couldn't wait to do it for this LO. Thank you Camilla for the inspiration!! I hope I did you justice!!

Here is a closeup of the beautiful stamp that looks like an adorned book page. I stamped it on yellow cardstock that came in our Swirlydoos card stock add on kit, then proceeded to color the leaves and flowers using Glimmer Mist and a small brush. I took advantage of the words You Are So Beautiful in the stamp, and used it for my title.

This is just a closeup of the flowers that I created using the stamp and the die that was made for it. Spellbinders creates gorgeous dies for Heartfelt Creations to die cut the gorgeous stamps. It saves so much time with fussy cutting each layer f or the flowers, as well as the beautiful flourishes attached to the leafy vines.

And here is a close up of the flower cluster and the beautiful new leafy vine from the Bella Rose set, I know I will be using this one a lot!! I love it!! I created the centers using my McGill Star punch. I punched about 4 of them for each middle as I demonstrated in my Purple Passion Flower tutorial. I did tuck in a few Swirlydoos rosebuds into my flower cluster. I just thought they were so peachy sweet.

I used my Swirlydoos May kit, Grandma's Garden to create this layout. I absolutely adore the Glitz line Laced with Grace. The warm colors are yummy! Head on over to the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see the gorgeous work that the Design Team has done this week!! They are incredible!!
