The Botanical Garden Stamp Collection from Heartfelt Creations

I told you there would be twist to the flowers I created with the Spellbinders Foliage Shapeabilities die and the Spellbinders Donna Salazar's Rose Creations Shapeabilities die. Heartfelt Creations has created gorgeous stamps to go along with these dies. I think this is my new favorite collection!! The Botanical Garden Collection features 5 new precut stamp sets that coordinate with existing Spellbinders Rose Creations Shapeabilities and Spellbinder Foliage Shapeabilities dies. The Botanical Garden Collection is a great addition to every floral lover's collection of flowers. And you know how much I love my flowers.
Leave a comment on my blog or the Heartfelt Creations blog by July 19 and one lucky person will win the entire release valued at $75.00. The winner will be announced on the HC blog on July 20.

"Baby Lullaby" features a photo of my daughter when she was just days old, (almost 20 years ago)...*sigh* snuggled up to a plush mouse dressed in pink girliness. The papers used are from K and Company. I just love their coordinating paper collection pads. See bottom of post for instructions on how the layout was created.

Leaves and ferns and even single leaves (not shown) give us such a variety of foliage.

The title was created by punching a stamp shape, die cutting letters, and adhering the letters to the stamp shape. then inking the edges.

Some closeups of the stamped and colored leaves and flowers.

I added a pearl to each flower center. And used Glimmer Mist and Lindy's Starburst Spray in 3-4 different colors for a variegated effect on the flowers

You are going to loooooove this beautiful collection. I know I have a tutorial in the works for some beautiful Flowers and leaf clusters.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see what me and my DT members have created with the new collection. Glorious layouts, cards and altered projects!

Punch around the pattern paper with Wildflowers All around The Page punch. Ink the edges. Adhere to solid card stock. With coordinating pattern paper, cut a 6 inch strip, edge punch with English Ivy punch on the long sides, ink edges and adhere strip to page vertically across page in middle. Lightly ink edges of photo and adhere to middle of strip. Die cut your letters, ink them around edges,punch the stamp squares and adhere letters to stamp punch background. Ink the edges. Set aside. Die cut the flowers and leaves in various sizes. Color with Glimmer Mist or similar spray. I mixed 5 different colors to achieve a watercolor effect as in the patterned paper in matching colors. Stamp the flowers and leaves. Wet and wrinkle distress them slightly while still damp to give them depth and texture. Layer the flowers 2 or 3 layers per flower. Leave a couple of the smaller flowers in a single layer. Add a pearl to the middle of each flower. Arrange the flowers and leaves in clusters on both sides of the layout. Place your title as shown and place a few random butterflies around the page.

That is a beautiful layout! And the baby is so adorable :). I LOVE your flowers and leaves they are just stunning. Do you cut them first and then stamp them or stamp first and then cut? I've not ordered any yet from Heartfelt but have some old sets and I love their stamps! Definately want to get the ones that coordinate with the dies!!
