We had such beautiful weather for a few days and yesterday a huge wind storm blew through and sure created a lot of dust. Not good on allergies!!!
This card did not turn out the way I wanted but decided to post it any way. Seems like something is missing -- perhaps I should have added some leaves. I have been wanting to create a flower with the Heartfelt Creations "Open Petals PreCut" set but had a hard time deciding which paper to use. I wanted a design in the petals so used a piece of vellum with a lace design in it. The petals were stamped using white pigment ink and then clear embossed. There is a Spellbinder die "Perfect Petals Nestabilities" to cut these petals out. Prior to cutting the petals out, a sponge dauber and pink ink were used to color them. The pretty element behind the flower is from the Heartfelt Creations "Perfect Petals Diecuts". The sentiment is from the JustRite "Baroque Nested Frames" set. I used only the smaller frame with the sentiment. Isn't the script and the frame beautiful. Love the two new JustRite Nested Frame sets.
Heartfelt Creations has another set called "Perfect Petal Medley PreCut" that has images on the petals. I have ordered this set (plus others) from Joan's Gardens but don't have them yet. These stamps and dies were so popular Joan sold out of them right away but has a new order coming in soon. She also has ordered some of the new releases, so be sure to watch her blog to see these new items.
My friend Olga created a card using these same stamps. You can see her beautiful card here. I love how she combined regular card stock and vellum to create her flower.
The Heartfelt Creations products and JustRite stamps used in today's project can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
Thanks for stopping by.
