Beautiful in color, exquisite in fragrance, and ever so dignified, the rose is one of the most coveted flowers found in chic bouquets, or carefully tended flower gardens.  Breathtaking in bud form, as a blossom gently opening, or in full bloom, it is a flower that calls attention to itself and beckons you to pause and quietly reflect upon its elegance.  Heartfelt Creations invites you to stop, fall quiet and immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the new Classic Rose Collection!  Filled with delicate illustrations of roses ranging from buds, to full blossoms, rose wreaths and flower filled vines, the three cling stamp sets and coordinating dies included in this assembling will have you building gorgeous rose gardens filled with varying sizes of dimensional flowers as realistic as those found in nature themselves.  The captivating decorative paper collection will whisk you away to perfectly manicured rose filled grounds, serene meadows where brooks babble and wild roses hold their heads high, and alluring views from charming old world buildings clad in weathered brick and vining florals.  The handsome color palette of regal purples, deep brick like reds, rich corals and leafy greens filled with delicate swirls, stunning brickwork and floral patterns, along with tender handwritten script are among just a few of the magnificent elements found within this graceful paper assembling. So join us as we slow down, enjoy the view and take some time to linger and smell the roses.

Where the join is, this is your starting point for the corsage.  First place a leaf vine then the buds. Arrange the roses and leaves as you go. Making sure it all fits neatly and tightly clustered along the bracelet. Ending of course with a few buds with a trail of vine leaves.

To tidy the back of the work and to make a nice finish, make a looped ribbon bow. Glue in place behind the leaves and roses. Glue down any lose swirl, leaves and ribbon loops where needed.

Make and adhere all the embellishments to the card front by first, stamping, coloring, shaping the roses and leaves. For the heart frame, die cut x 4 and adhere together.

Well if winter has not hit you yet...lets hope later when it does you can make your own  Mr frosty and throw a few snow balls your self. A few rounds of ice skating would not go amiss...it's on my list. I am sure hoping for snow this winter, we did not get it last year....we got the rain and cold. You have gathered I love the snow. You have to understand in New Zealand where I grew up we did not get the snow and here in Holland we don't get snowed in. 
If you only look on the up side and turn back the clock so you don't have a care in the world...yes it can be a lot of fun playing in the snow.

Snow Globe card "HOME SWEET HOME"


 Hi how are you today? 
I hope happy and ready to see what I did this week with the Snow Kissed collection....crazy! Doing snow in August! Thinking out of the box....so, this time I used a snow globe ball as the card base and framed the horse drawn sleigh with the fantastic snow flake frame. Of course winter is not with out snow laden trees. So get the coffee or to get into the mood...hot coco ready and enjoy.
(you could always turn on the cooling fan to really get into the winter mood...lol)




OTHER PRODUCTS:
Inks: Distress Inks: Faded jeans, Pine needles, Forest moss. Derwent Inktense water color pencils: 1910-Red oxide, 0850-Deep blue, 1560-Fern, 0200-Sun yellow, 2300-Antique white, 1320-Ionion green, 1740-Saddle brown, 0720-Thistle, 1710 Amber, 1900-Willow, 0600 Shiraz, 0500 Chili red. Paper: Card stock: Crafters Companion White hint of gold 300gm, White card stock for stamping. Watercolor paper. Other: Diamond dust, Double sided foam tape, Clear embossing powder, Archival black ink, Versa-mark, Fussy cutting scissors, Creative Expressions embossing folder ILLUSION EF-015, Dutch Doobadoo Snow Globe stencil, Ranger Glossy accents. Spellbinders circle dies.

Note of interest: (Below you see the globe open. You can not see it but the window has been linked with the clear card-stock. The spruce trees are not glued down but are supported by the card-stock. This is because you will see all the glue etc from behind once the card is opened...important to remember. Just make sure you tape and glue right up to the edge of the clear card stock.)


Directions:
This card measures about 13cm x 17cm when completed.
Using the Doobadoo Snow Globe and trace out or draw a snow globe in card form. Ink the Snow Globe edges with the ink. Cut a hole in the front to place the clear card stock to form a glass front. From the paper pad, select and cut a matting for the out side foot and inside foot and ball. Emboss both paper cuts. Taking the white card stock cut: matting for the front inside foot, cut 2x the large snow flake, cut 6 x the Home Sweet Home title. Adhere the title layers together, ink the top layer with Pine needles ink then apply a thick layer of the glossy accents. Put aside to dry. Stamp the image of the horse and sleigh, color with the watercolor pencils. Die cut into a circle. Stamp the spruce trees first with ink then with clear embossing powder then die cut and shape with the shaping tools. Apply the white drying glue 


To the tips of the trees, large snowflake, the sentiment and the snow lines in the stamped image apply the white drying glue then dip in the Diamond dust. When dry adhere all in place on the card front and card inside. To finish the card, apply a thick layer of the white drying glue to the edge of the globe out side and inside. Dip this also into the Diamond dust. Ready to go.


Giving you a birds eye view of how the fold is constructed.
These spruce trees look really good when placed in layers. Also stamping the tree image in different colours and sizes adds great interest to a project.


Here you get to see close up the title. When adding the glossy to the title, put enough on so it nearly flows over the letters. When putting aside to dry, make sure your work lays flat or else you will find the glossy has run and blobbed. I always try to leave it over night to give it the time it needs to dry.....love these trees! See how they have the die cuts in the branches. So you can shape them. Here I did not do that. If you did, it would have even more dimention.


Add the white glue to the edge then sprinkle the diamond dust over it....then you get this yummy snow sparkle effect. Whats more, it gives a hint of bling....and we know how much I like bling!
See how the embossing gives that extra interest. Love the texture.Don't worry if the paper cracks a little...thats part of the fun!
Wishing you all happy thoughts and moment for your day,
inky hugs to you from sussipoppins
