Beautiful Roses

 Today's card made me happy; I love how it turned out.  I used some of my favorite products; Heartfelt Creations flowers, Marianne Design dies, and Graphic 45 Design Paper.

 Here is a picture of the products I used.  I have had the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea 8x8 inch  Paper Pad and 6x6 inch Patterns and Solid paper pad for a while now and don't believe I have used it.  I love the papers in these pads so much,  maybe I was afraid to use it up!  I am so happy I did.  I love the large pink rose in the design paper so turned to my Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms stamps and die to create flowers.  When I create flowers, I always create a lot while I am doing it and in this picture you can see I even created a few different style flowers with the Arianna Blooms, which I will use later.

Have you used the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms stamps and die to create flowers?    It is so quick and easy and you can create so many different types of flowers.   I stamped the flowers (which are all on one stamp) using Pink Pastel Color Box Chalk ink on Bazzill iced pink card stock.  The matching die for this stamp is so easy to use.  You can just line  it up over the stamped image, and you get five die cut flowers. I use a magnetic plate so didn't even need to tape the die down.  For the largest flower, I used 3 of the largest petals, 3 of the next size down, and just one of the 3rd size down for the center.  For the medium flower, I did the same thing using the three smallest petals.  For the buds, I used the next to the smallest petals and just folded them up into a bud.

I used the Marianne Design Anja's Delicate Corners for the base piece of the design.  Next I die cut the frame and center circle from the Marianne Design Petra's Circle and Crown (LR0317) to frame a piece of the Graphic 45 Design paper that I wanted to use.  The design paper was die cut using the circle die that comes in the Petra's Circle set and attached it to the card stock circle. I sponged blue ink around the edges. The frame was attached with dimensional tape to the card.  The circle was attached with two sided adhesive so the frame is up higher.  It was dropped into place, so it was perfectly centered, after the frame was attached.

 The bird, butterflies, leaves and stamp squares were cut out from the design paper.

 The polka dot and solid blue design paper were used from the Graphic 45 6x6" Patterns & Solid Botanical Tea paper pad.  A piece of sticky back ribbon was placed across the middle of the card (under the frame).  To complete the card, I used a lot of pearls in the design.

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.

Hello Selma - I have been enjoying your blog and website for a long time now. I just wanted to say that I think you are the most artistic person I know. You have the most lovely projects and so time consuming. It's people like you that inspire the rest of us. I really enjoy looking and dreaming about being that great. Thank you again and keep up the items - we all love them.

WOW! This card is just stunning! Thanks so much for detailing how you created this lovely card. I, too, like to make as many extra flowers as I can. That way, should the need arise, I can literally throw together a card in a couple of minutes. I also frequently change my original design plan and I'm glad I have other floral options available. Love Heartfelt Creations flower petal dies! I always get excellent results. Your blooms on this card are breathtaking! The postage stamps and butterfly on the lower right corner...nice touch. Once I finish the wedding album I am currently working on, I'm going to have to stop hoarding Botanical Tea and cut into it! It's a lovely G45 paper collection. I always look forward to your postings...very inspirational!
