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!!
