Happy Heartfelt creations Wednesday!! Heartfelt creations is at CHA this week . Sorry that I had to miss out on all of the fun this time around. My real job schedule just got in the way. I had plane tickets..Couldn't get the time off.. They need to bring CHA back to Orlando!!
Well this week, I worked on using the newest collection of stamps and dies again, but did my flowers a little different. So many possibilities with the new Botanicals collection. This LO may differ slightly from the one posted on the HC Blog as I added some butterflies and a tail stream...No butterflies on my LO??? What on earth was I thinking!!! Well, the HC Design Team has some amazing work to show you this week. Head on over to the blog and see the beautiful work! If you are a card lover, your going to love what you see!!
Well altered items and LO's rock this week as well!!
I also did this for the Get Picky Inspiration Challenge # 10. I love butterflies!!
If you love butterflies, head over to Swirlydoos and pick up a file or 2...I create one every month to match the kits. You will be sure to find what you need there.
The clusters of flowers are so easy to create using the stamp and die set. I have written instructions on how I created the stamen for the flowers. Check the how at the bottom of this post. I used piece of Prima say it in pearls for the tail stream.
The strip that goes up the page is all punch work. I love my punches!! And playing with my Martha Stewart punches I created Medallions with the corner punch. All you do is cut out a 1.5 x 1.5 piece of card stock and punch the 4 corners...Instant medallion with so many uses! I just adhered it to the pink floral strip that I created with my EK Success large edge punch.
Here is a closeup of the flowers. I really love this set.

Here are the detailed instructions of how I created this page. And links to the stamps and dies.
Products Used on This Project
Botanical Floral 2 PreCut Set HCPC 3407
K and Company paper, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Archival ink ,Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page "Cherish" EK Success Large Edge Punch, Prima E-line Pearls, sewing machine ,Martha Stewart Microbeads, McGill punch "Crystal"Edge Punch around a 12 x 12 patterned paper. Cut the lighter coordinating paper 10 x 10 and sewed to background paper. Used the large edge punch and punched down a pink strip of coordinating paper, then turned the paper around, lined up the design and punched down that side to create the decorative flower strip. Then took the corner punch and punched the corners of a 1.5 x 1.5 piece of card stock to create the little medallions and adhered one to each of the large flower shapes. Adhere to layout slightly off center. Added a pearl to the middle of each medallion. Using a corner punch, punch around 2 cut circles for the photo frames and adhere the photos to each circle. Adhere the framed photos to each side of the flower strip as shown. Die cut and stamp the flowers and leaves using brown Archival Ink, and spray with Glimmer Mist. Scrunch them slightly while they are still damp. When they are dry, layer 2 different sizes, and leave some of the smaller ones a single layer. The center stamen were made by punching a McGill Crystal shape, dip the tip of each end into the micro-beads and let dry. Attach to center of each flower and top each with a pearl, arrange leaves and flowers as shown.
