Today the new Heartfelt Creations Arianna Collection is released. Step away from the hustle and bustle as you enter a peaceful garden that winds its way through flower strewn paths in sunny hues of yellow, pink and green and richly hued background papers that are reminiscent of shaded bowers. Hand drawn stamps plant seeds of inspiration with images of bird houses, cottage gardens, artfully arranged florals and elegant sentiments. The Arianna Blooms die allows you to create five blossoms with one pass through your cutting machine while the Arianna Lace die contains intricate flowers, lacy doilies delicate foliage, corners and page accents. Refresh your spirit and let your creativity flourish with the Arianna Blooms collection.
With this collection I decided to work with one of the beautiful 12x12 sheets of Arianna design paper to create a wall hanging for a birthday gift. It was attached to a 12x12 canvas art board. In the center I used one of the 6x6" card panels. I used the birdhouse stamp from the "Arianna Bird Haven PreCut Set" to add to the upper left side of this panel. It was stamped, colored with Copic markers and cut out then attached with double sided tape. The image was stamped a second time and the flowers were colored and cut out to add dimension to the birdhouse. The Sentiment is from the "Arianna Birthday PreCut Set".
The Arianna Blooms PreCut Set" includes five flowers. These were stamped many times to create all the flowers on this piece. They were stamped using Colorbox Rouge ink. The Arianna Blooms die, to die cut these flowers, is so easy to use. You don't need to cut a template and holds well over the stamped images if you are using the Sizzix Magnetic plate - if you aren't using the magnetic plate, just tape the die over the stamped images. To add more color to the flowers, I sponged additional ink around the tips of the petals. The stamens were die cut with the stamen dies in this collection. The tips of each stamen were dotted with glue and dipped in Susan's Garden yellow pollen. All the pretty doilies and flourishes were die cut using dies from the Arianna Blooms Collection. Pearls were added to complete this project.
Since I don't do scrapbooking, it was fun to figure out a way to use this beautiful 12x12 design paper to create a wall hanging.
