Heartfelt Creations collection release Wednesday! 'UNDER THE SEA'

This introduction so describes this must have it all collection.....
read on and have fun.
Take a walk along the edge of the deep blue sea, feel the warm sand between your toes and breathe in the salty air.  Balmy breezes tousle your hair and toy with the exotic hibiscus flower behind your ear as you stoop to snatch a lustrous seashell that has been swept onto the beach with the incoming tide. Cares and worries melt away because life really is better at the seaside.  The cool, crystal clear water lapping at the shoreline beckons you and you cannot resist the sudden urge to dive right in.  Before you know it you have been submerged into a magical underwater world where you find yourself settling on a jagged reef surrounded with burnished coral, glassy seashells and mystical sea creatures more beautiful than your imagination could ever conjure.  A peek behind the coral and waltzing seaweed finds you nose to nose with a school of fish gliding every so gently with their long, graceful flowing tails and glistening scales decorated with an abundance of shimmering and alluring colors.  Delicate sea horses and magnificent jelly fish dart and flit among the dancing aquatic plant life as to entertain you with a glorious underwater show being performed just for you.  Welcome to “Under the Sea”, the newest collection by Heartfelt Creations.  This water themed assembling of magnificent papers, stamps and dies will have you creating ravishing underwater scenes perfect for documenting your seaside vacations, ocean themed altered art pieces or salt water card creations.   The tranquil color palette of calming blues, greens and teals, paired with golden yellows, subtle shades of pinks, purples, corals and reds are sure to soothe your soul.  Creating projects with a tropical flair that will “make a splash” has been made simple with decorative papers boasting mesmerising patterns of sea shells, florals, delicate swirls and alluring hibiscus blossoms.  The intricate, detailed stamp illustrations of underwater sea creatures, glistening seashells, and exotic hibiscus flowers are sublime for shaping and creating dimensional elements adding a realistic touch to any underwater themed paper craft design.  We invite you to take the plunge and come along with us on an underwater adventure as we explore Under the Sea.

The finished tent fold card measures 21 cm x 14. 6 cm.
Note: All the stamping is done on the Aquarelle paper and with the gold embossing powder.
Taking the A4 Crafters Companion card stock, fold this in half. This will become your card base. Find the green design paper in the paper pad and cut to fit the card base front, 21 cm x 14.6 cm. less, 2mm smaller each side. Distress the edges with the distressing tool. Adhere to the card front. Taking the A4 foam sheet, (used instead of cutting x 4-5 extra paper to make the die cut into a chipboard) the Crafters Companion card stock and the Eyelet die, cut out. Cut also the decorative die shape from the card stock. Adhere together then place and adhere to the card front. Apply a little colour to the frame front. Stamp, colour, die cut and shape the images. Note the jellyfish tail has been cut off and used as sea grass and the jellyfish head has been used as sea urchins. All is adhered with the aid of the foam dots cut to size needed. The sentiment is first stamped then the jellyfish die is used to get the oval shape…of course cutting the tentacles off and edging with the gold embossing powder. Add the finishing touch of the stickles on the fish scales, flowers and shells.

 A close up of the is beautiful shell. I had such fun colouring and shaping this shell.

Below you see the Jelly fish stamp used to make a few under the sea urchins. Trim the tentacles off and use them as sea grass. The gold embossing truly gives a mystical intrigue to the card.This same die is used to cut the handy.

You can see the tentacles used as the sea grass. The flowers and swirls are so wonderful to use...great fillers for any arrangement.

Love this fish stamp. When coloured, add stickler to the scales, this gives it a great finishing touch.

Another peek at the card to show the layering.

Have fun with it....see you next time..
