It is time for a new release from Heartfelt Creations. The Vintage Floret release is a beautiful collection of ancient luxury. This month's paper release is similar to the wallpaper of a quaint Parisian café. The textured flower stamps add a quiet delicacy to every project. The typography is a delightful combination of botanical growth and grandmother's old typewriter stored away in the attic. There are 5 new PreCut Stamp Sets, one 12x12 Paper Collection, and one beautiful new exclusive Spellbinders die designed for Heartfelt Creations.
For my card today I have used the "Bold Vintage Floret Background PreCut Set". It was white embossed on white card stock. To bring out the design, I used the Tim Holtz Blending Tool and "Iced Spruce" Distress Ink. I love this color but it does not show up well in my photo. It is kind of a bluish green and looks very pretty with pink. The flowers from this set were white embossed on pink vellum and cut out with the matching dies. Two flowers were stacked together after shaping them with the tools from the Flower Tool Kit. The sentiment is also from this stamp set.
The butterfly is from the Heartfelt Creations "Delicate Asters and Butterflies PreCut Set" that was release last month. There was not a die for this stamp so the butterfly was cut out with scissors. It was sponged with the "Iced Spruce" Distress Ink then Distressed Stickles Dry Glitter was added over it. (I lightly brushed on some "Glue n' Seal" before putting on the glitter. Two Spellbinders "Parisian Accents" corners were added as well as some Kaiser Craft pearls to complete the card.
You can order all these products from Joan's Gardens. As she does each month, Joan has a great discount if you purchase the "I Want It All" Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret release.
