Happy Heartfelt Creations Black Friday!

A BIG Hi, to all you fellow scrappies,

Yes it's POSTING TIME again,
That means posting for sussiP, but it's a special posting, thats why it is not done on the Wednesday... it's the November  reveal at
Heartfelt Creations!

Don't we just love that special time of the month? I'm talking about the release day....
Once again, Linda and the team have brain stormed and really come out of the box for us. They have come up with a WOW collection complete with a new Paper Pad, six sets of precut stamps and a die. - the Garden Romantique collection.
Here's the officail info about the collection:

"Love is in full bloom with the Romantique Garden collection from Heartfelt Creations. A romantic symphony composed in subtle shades of pink, fuchsia, green, cream and charcoal harmonizes beautifully with picturesque images of dainty hummingbirds, devoted love birds, graceful swans and delicate bleeding heart bushes. Ornate ironwork backgrounds are in perfect harmony with layered elements of vintage sheet music, lace, flowing handwriting, scrollwork, florals, stripes and flourishes. Six hand drawn stamp sets capture the idyllic beauty of a peaceful garden where swans glide across the surface of a glassy lake, nesting lovebirds are wreathed in flowers, and hummingbirds sip nectar from blossom laden branches of exquisite beauty. The coordinating die cuts feature elegant swirled stems, a graduated set of bleeding heart blossoms and a majestic pair of swimming swans. Dreamy and idyllic, uplifting and inspiring, romantic and moving as a masterfully scored concerto, this enchanting collection is a celebration of love and life amidst the extraordinary beauty of nature."
Does this sound yummie or does this sound yummie!
Below, is my first,
of course many more to come, creations with the newest addition to the
Heartfelt Creations portfolio:
So take a squizz at what I did with the new collection and.....Enjoy!

Products used, which you can find in Heartfelt Creations online store:

 Other Products Used: Spellbinders Majestic Elements, Paper: water color paper, Blue, Cerise card stock, Ink: Color box Brown, Archival black, Other: Derwent Ink-tense water color pencils, WOW embossing glitters-Black glint, Distressing tool, Stickles Star Dust, Seam binding ribbon Pale blue, fine paper cutting scissors.

This card size is, 16.6cm x 10cm
Cut a 16.6cm x 10cm as a card base from blue cardstock. Cut a 16cm x 9.4cm  panel from the cerise colored cardstock and distress the edges. Cut a 9.5cm x 15.5cm panel from design paper from the HCDP1 249 Romantique Garden Paper Collection pack. Distress the edges, adhere it to the cerise cardstock panel with double dots then wrap the blue seam binding ribbon around both layers. Glue this ready panel to the card base. 

Stamp the image of the bird only, three times using the stamp image from HCPC3642 Romantique wings PreCut Set and black ink, onto the water color paper. Then stamp the complete image of the bird and flower, using the same stamp set. Die cut the card into an oval shape you have just stamped using the second inner oval from Spellbinders Majestic Elements die. Using the same die set, die cut the 4th oval with the lace corners and put it aside for later. Color the stamped images with Derwent Inktense pencils. Fussy cut the flowers and three of the birds, cutting also between the front wing and back wing line. Separate all the feathers on the tail and the front wing. Shape the birds and the flowers using the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and Paper Blossoms Molding Mat. Curl the feathers of the bird with a very fine balling point. This will give the appearance of the wings fluttering very fast. Apply double dots behind the body of the bird and the flowers, so they will remain in shape. Apply double dots behind the die cut oval with image stamped on it and the oval with the lace corners. Aligning and stacking the two, attach them together. Place the bird and flowers on top of the base image. Add Stickles glitter glue to the edges of oval and lace corners. Apply 3d Crystal Lacquer to the bird and the under wings. Put aside to dry. 

When everything has dried, place the lace edged oval on the card so you can see where to stamp your sentiment. Put aside, then stamp and heat emboss the sentiment using HCPC3354 Classic message PreCut Set and black embossing powder. Attach the lace edged oval on top of the ribbon line in the centre of the card. Tie and place a triple bow under the wing of the bird.

I hope you enjoyed a wee taste of the new release!
