You are going to LOVE the new Heartfelt Creations "Burst of Splendor" Collection being released today. The flowers featured in this collection are gorgeous dahlias plus a variety of beautiful leaves that have matching dies. Wait until you see the gorgeous design papers in this collection. The Burst of Splendor paper pack is loaded with saturated greens and purples and sprinkled with colorful dahlias and clusters of wildflowers. White and orange dahlias pop out from purple border, bouquet adorned pages. Olive green eggshell patterns, ornate octagons, and wildflower-laden iron gates are splashed with saturated beige's and roasted browns. Brightly colored tags and journaling blocks complement the climbing ivies and plum hues.
For my card, I used a corner of one of the pieces of the design paper. I used the "Dahlia Cluster PreCut Set" to make the card dimensional. The Dahlia Cluster was stamped and colored to match the purple flowers in the design paper. I stamped the design using VersaFine Black Ink and clear embossed it so the black outline of each petal would be very distinct, then used Copic markers to color. I actually stamped two flower clusters coloring each. The entire image was cut out with scissors then on the second stamped image just cut out the flowers. The flowers and leaves were shaped with the tools from the Susan's Garden Tool Kit. The extra flowers were attached over the stamped image using dimensional glue dots. The journaling block was cut from one of the design papers and the sentiment stamped with one of the Heartfelt Creations Classic Message PreCut Set stamps. A portion of the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Blossom Corner was used under the journaling block.
This is a beautiful Heartfelt Creations collection I know you will love working with.
