Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday ***10-5-11***

Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!! I cant believe how the weeks are just flying by...
Autumn is upon us, and for some of the lucky ones, they are in, or close to being in the midst of an Autumn Splendor show!! Unfortunately, I live in a state where there are 4 seasons...Summer, Summer, Summer and Summer..No falling red, yellow or Orange leaves. Yes, I may get that crisp morning air smell some mornings, or the occasional scent of burning leaves, or the smell of a fireplace that is blazing in someones family room. Oh How I miss the northern season!!
Fortunately, Heartfelt Creations has created stamps that allow my imagination to take flight. To create the vision in my head. The vision of AUTUMN. With all of the colors in all of it's glory. And even though the picture of my beautiful daughter was taken mid summer in 90 degree heat...the colors in the photo echoed Autumn. So I created this layout around the photo and its rich Autumn colors.
Please visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see more beautiful creations from the Fabulous Design Team.


I opted for a postcard style background. I did a tutorial so that you can create your own. Very easy...

Just a closeup of the flowers. The Aztec Sunflower stamp is so beautiful that you don't even have to create a middle for it. But you know me..I like fluffy flowers!

I coupled the flowers with the gorgeous leaf stamps. Then colored them with Glimmer Mist and Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Mist. I edged the flowers with Stickles in Paprika.

I used the tutorial for the Faux Scrapbook Letters. To get small letters, I printed the sheets in 4 x 6 size. They are perfect for smaller titles. I used distress ink in Spiced Marmalade to ink the edges. The color was perfect match with the papers.

I misted a Wilton Doily. I think I picked up a pack in every size!! I just love them. The flourish is a Sizzix Sizzlets die.

Here is just a close up of the corner flower cluster. I tucked some flourish swirls between the flowers just as a filler. See below this post to get the fine details on how I put this whole layout together, and get the links for the stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations.
I hope you are inspired to get out those autumn colored scrappy supplies and start creating your own Autumn Splendor...

Follow the link to my blog to get the direction on how to create the Postage Stamp Background. Color the doily using spray of your choice. I used Lindy's Starburst Spray. Position your doily and matted photo slightly off center as shown. Die cut and stamp your leaves in black on white card stock and spray with the desired colors. Stamp and die cut various sizes of the flowers in your desired color card stock, enhance with color sprays and layer then staggering the petals for a full look. Crunch the flowers slightly for dimension. Punch 6-7 Starburst layers for each flower, Adhere each layer by placing a dot of glue in the middle of each layer. When the layers are dry, scrunch the layers upward to form the middles of each flower. Adhere each to a flower middle. Using Ranger Stickles, outline the edges of the flower petals. For the title, I used my tutorial on the Faux Scrabble Letters. I die cut the flourishes. Arrange your flowers and leaves in clusters as shown and then tuck your flourishes in between the clusters.
