Burst Of Splendor.....New Release!

Good morning everyone ....I hope you are enjoying this beautiful sunshine! It's hard to believe we are in July already:(..... Well my last post was a very festive Christmas card, but today I would like to share with you a card that I have made using the new July Heartfelt Creations collection called Burst of Splendour and Wow! what a beautiful and summery collection it is and so versatile......
This collection includes a Classic Leaf die that is the perfect botanical addition for every project you create. The Open, Classic and Bold Leaf stamps create depth and variety to your crafty projects. Pick up the Dahlia Cluster, Dahlia Bouquet and Blooming Dahlia stamps to create a stunning floral masterpiece. These background, accent and corner stamps will add a delightful classic touch to every project you create.The Burst of Splendor paper pack is loaded with saturated greens and purples and sprinkled with colorful dahlias and clusters of wildflowers. White and orange dahlias pop out from purple border, bouquet adorned pages. Olive green eggshell patterns, ornate octogans, and wildflower-laden iron gates are splashed with saturated beiges and roasted browns. Brightly colored tags and journaling blocks complement the climbing ivies and plum hues. This paper pack will make your project even more eye-catching. Buy it Now

Choose paper from the collection and adhere to the front of the card. Stamp  the Dalia bouquet and cluster onto card and colour using pan pastels (I used a cotton bud). Cut out using the medium grand decorative oval die, whilst still in the die sweep over with pan pastels with a sponge. Adhere on the front of the card as in picture. Die cut and stamp a selection of leaves. Fussy cut some Dahlias from the paper collection. Adhere the dahlias and leaves around the image. Make a bow and adhere to the left hand side of the cluster of dahlias. Stamp the sentiment and cut out with the small die from the stately circles and again whilst still in the die add a little pan pastel. Adhere as in picture with foam pads. Add the rhinestone sparkle to the centre of the bow and add pearls on the card to finish.
