Heartfelt Creations Products Used:
HCDP 1235 Burst Of Splendor Paper Collection
HCPC 3509 Timeless Sentiments precut set
HCPC 3545 Open Leaf precut set
HCPC 3550 Dahlia Bouquet precut set
HCD 736 Open Leaf die set

Spellbinder dies used: Floral Doily Motifs and Floral Doily Accent
Other Items Used: Deep purple and lilac cardstock, water colour card, Versafine Ink: Sepia, Memento ink: Jamba leaves and cottage ivy. Distress ink and markers: Seedless preserves, milled lavender,
Cosmic Shimmer iridescent watercolour paint: purple violet and holly leaf, 2 7”x7” card blanks, pearls, decorative cameo’s, lace, purple and lilac ribbon.

First I made my criss cross card using the 2 card blanks.  Cover the inside middle and the 2 front triangles in lilac card. Then choose some papers from the Burst of Splendor collection and layer onto the lilac card leaving about a cm around the edges so that a little of the lilac is showing. Adhere the card together to give you your base criss cross card.
Using the deep purple card die cut out 5 Floral accent borders and adhere these onto the card as in picture. Take some cream lace and adhere to the top back of the card so that about 2cm or 3cm is showing. Die cut and stamp 3 leaves.  Fussy cut some of the purple dahlia’s from the papers and decoupage them up and adhere to the front centre of the card along with the leaves in a cluster.
Decorate the card with pearls on a string. Make a bow using the lace and adhere to the bottom right of the card. Add a cameo to the centre of the bow.
The Tag: Cut a piece of water colour card about 4.5cm x 5.5cm. Stamp the Dahlia bouquet using the versafine  ink  onto the bottom left corner. Colour up the image using distress markers, inks and cosmic shimmer water colour paint. Stamp the sentiment onto the card as in picture.  Distress around the edges of the card using distress inks.  Matt and layer the image onto deep purple and lilac card stock.  Die cut a floral accent border in pale lilac card and adhere to the top of the tag. Make a loop of deep purple ribbon, make a bow and adhere to the top middle of the tag.  Adhere some pearls on thread to the top of the tag. Finish by adding a decorative cameo to the centre of the bow.

I am just loving these beautiful purples and colouring these stamps in is so easy, you just follow the detail that is already there! Looks like I have put lot's of work into it, but honestly I really haven't that's one of things I just love about the Heartfelt Creations stamps.
