I have some happy news. This morning I found out the card I submitted for the JUGS (Just Us Girls) Saturday challenge was selected for the "Chic of the Week". What an honor. I want to thank them for selecting my card. I will proudly place the badge in my sidebar. It was a very fun challenge to participate in.
Now to my card. Have you seen the new Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies that Joan now has in her store (Joan's Gardens)? Well she did have them but they are so popular that she sold out very quickly. However, she is taking orders because she will be receiving more. These are precut stamps which also have Spellbinder dies so you don't even have to cut them out. How fun! The stamps I used on my card are called Lily Petals. There are stamps for both the flower petals and for the leaves plus the Spellbinder dies for each.
The lily petals were stamped with pink ink and cut out with the die, then sponged around the edges. There is a video on the Heartfelt Creations blog showing how to form the flowers. I followed these directions to create my flowers and leaves. The "Perfect Petals" die cut includes the beautiful scrolled background. I ran a piece of white card stock through the Cuttlebug using the Dotted Swiss embossing folder then attached two of the scrolled background pieces using Pro Glider adhesive. The flowers and leaves were arranged on top. The verse is from the JustRite stamp set "Thinking of You". It was stamped twice and the center cut out of one and attached with dimensionals. Some Martha Stewart ferns and twisted paper were added to complete the card.
Be sure to go over to Joan's blog and see all the beautiful cards created with stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations. I'm sure you will love them all.
