Hello! I am very excited to share my first Heartfelt Creations card with you today! I just started working with the stamp images and I have to say I love them!! All of the stamps from Heartfelt Creations are deeply etched red rubber and have a wonderful design quality with nice crisp images. But wait until you see the New Release!! Some of the New Releases from Heartfelt Creations match some of the Spellbinders™ Nestabilities™! How Fantastic is that!! Click HERE to see all the New Releases.
Here is the card I created.~~~I absolutely LOVE how the roses turned out!! To create the Roses I used two stamp sets from Heartfelt Creations, HC 226A (set of 4 roses), HC 226B (set of 3 roses). Both Rose stamp sets match the Blossom S4-192 die template from Spellbinders™. For the Leaves I used the HC 225D-PC(set of 3 leaves) stamp set and for the Sentiment I used Mini Message Cursive Set 1189S. To start I stamped several of the rose images (three different sizes) several times with gold pigment ink and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. After the embossing powder cooled for a few seconds then I cut the rose image using the Wizard™ and Blossom S4-192 die templates from Spellbinders™.I used Blushing Rose Twinkling H2O's to watercolor the roses. I had 2-3 layers of the Twinkling H2O's on each flower, starting very light and getting darker to add shading.Next I worked on the leaves. I stamped several leaves with gold pigment ink and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I used two colors of Twinkling H2O's for the leaves. I used Lemon Grass for the first layer.For the second layer of Twinkling H2O's I used Green Tea.While the roses were still a little damp I shaped them and then I airbrushed the backside of each of the roses. I did the airbrushing so the roses would look pretty once they were layered and so if the petals were curled up you wouldn't see stark white from the bottom of the paper. I also airbrushed the backside of the leaves. For the roses I used Copic sketch marker RV17 and for the leaves YG25.Next I worked on the background paper. First I cut/embossed the bottom border using the Lotus Borderabilities® Petites S4-240 die template from Spellbinders™. Then I inked the edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo from Ranger. I wanted to add a little more sparkle to the paper so I sprayed Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist over the entire piece. I stamped some of the leaf images with gold pigment ink and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder.I used the same Twinkling H2O's as mentioned above to watercolor the leaves. Lemon Grass for the first layer.And Green Tea for the second layer.Here is a close-up of all the roses and the leaves. The next step was to assemble all the pieces. To adhere the roses and the leaves I used hot glue.Here is a close-up of the roses and the leaves on the card. I think the roses are so Beautiful! I took a couple pictures of the roses from a different angle so you can see all the dimension. A sentiment was added to the top of the card. The sentiment is from Mini Message Cursive Set 1189S. I stamped the sentiment in gold pigment ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder onto a tag. To cut/emboss the tag I used Fancy Tags S4-235 die template from Spellbinders™ and then I inked the edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo from Ranger. I also added some pearls to the top corner.Along the bottom I added some light green sheer ribbon and pearls for a finishing touch.
