Don't you love all the stamps in the new Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose Collection! This stamp set is called called "Tea with Bella PreCut Set". I also used the "Classic Bella Rose PreCut set" to add additional rose buds. The beautiful flourish is one of the dies in the Bella Rose Die set. This is my favorite flourish and you will see it on many cards I create in the future.
The tea cup was stamped and colored with Copic markers. It was cut out with scissors. Two additional rose buds were stamped, colored, and cut out with matching dies. The flourish was die cut using green card stock. I have had some questions about how to use the dies from Heartfelt Creations and want to tell you these dies are manufactured by Spellbinders and can be used in any die cut machine; the Cuttlebug, Big Shot, Vegabond, or the Grand Calibur. I love that Heartfelt Creations has matching Spellbinder dies for many of their stamps. There is a video on Joan's Gardens to show you how to use the Heartfelt Creations dies.
To assemble this card a piece of green design paper was placed on the front. One of the new Cheery Lynn doily dies, "Kiwi Doily", from Joan's Gardens was die cut and cut in half to place behind the cup. The flourish was attached to the left side then the cup was attached with dimensional tape over it. The two additional rose buds were tucked in over the flourish. Two Spellbinders "Parisian Accents" were added to the top corners to complete the card.
You can order your Bella Rose stamps from Joan's Gardens. Remember, if you order the "I Want It All" Bella Rose Collection, you will save $20.
