Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop September 2021

Hello Lovelies!!! This month, there are TWO opportunities to win a $25 Heartfelt Creations Gift Card. One winner will be randomly chosen from a mystery blog. The other winner will be randomly chosen from the Heartfelt Creations blog. All you have to do is hop, and leave some love on each of the designers blogs. You will surely find some inspiration along the way.

I love sunflowers, and the new collection Rustic Sunflowers is just what I needed to create some awesome projects in the future. Today, I bring you a card created for a friend of mine, who needs a little sunshine in her life right now. 

I stamped and die cut the Rustic Sunflowers using black archival ink, added some leafy Accents, and layered the Royal Elegance Frames die onto a card base I created form heavy cardstock. The size of the card is 7x4 inches. I also edged the card with some distress ink to tie the colors together. The Elegance die frame was die cut from heavy cardstock, and the outer lacy area was colored with distress ink. The inner Royal Elegance die cut was cut from a piece of paper from the Climbing Clematis paper collection. 

After I colored my flowers and leaves with distress inks, I added some of the Express-Yourself Prills to the centers of the flowers, then added some of Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear to the petals, to give the card a beautiful brilliance. 

I stacked each layer to create some depth. I arranged the flowers and leaves around the stamped sentiment. I really adore the Elegance Frames. You can do so much with each of the dies in the set. 

Thank you for joining us this month for this awesome hop!!
