Heartfelt Creations Wednesday July 27th

Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday! I just can't seem to get enough of the new Botanicals Collection of stamps and coordinating Spellbinders dies. I see soooo many possible ways to get different flowers. So here is another version using the collection. The butterflies and the Lace border are also Heartfelt Creation Exclusive dies made by Spellbinders. Go visit the blog to see more beautiful creations by the creatively fabulous design team. You will surely be inspired. I know I am. The beautiful sweetheart in the LO is Ashli, Krissy's (owner of Swirlydoos) most adorable daughter. She was so cute posing for me in an impromptu Photo shoot in her backyard.

Here is a closeup of the flowers. I wanted to create wild roses and this is what I came up with.

Yet another closeup but more of a side view.

I painted the foam letters with Lumiere paint and it left a wonderful kind of texture on it. The butterflies were die cut and I layered 2 of them and added the pearls for the body.

Here is how I created the layout.

12 x 12 layout

Cut the floral piece of paper using a scalloped curvy shape all along the edges. Ink and slightly spray the edges of paper and distress all along the edge, tearing into and curling some of the scallops showing the backside of the paper in parts. Wrinkle the 2 corners slightly and go over the corners with ink distressing further. Adhere the paper to the background paper. Die cut the Lace Border and adhere towards the bottom of page slightly offset. Tie ribbon around bottom of photo and adhere to page as shown slightly offset as well. Create you flowers by die cutting and stamping different sizes, then wet distress by wrinkling and curling the petals slightly inward towards the center, then stack flowers 2 or 3 at a time. Punch 4 star shapes and layer them on top of one another then scrunch them up to form puffy stamen. Adhere each to the middle of flowers. Die cut leaves and stamp. Arrange the leaves and flowers in clusters to your liking around the page. The butterflies were die cut and I layered 2 of them and added the pearls for the body. Place on layout. Paint chip board letters and place the title on either side of the photo as shown. Place the tiny sticker letters above the word WILD as part of the title.
