Heartfelt Creations Inspiration Layout

Hi, I have a layout to share with you today that I created with some of my favorite Heartfelt Creations products.  I love making these stamped and die cut flowers - I think that add so much.  This is a picture of me holding my sweet little nephew a few years back and the sun was shining on us on a crisp fall morning.

 I used the sketch/inspiration from Creative Embellishments March challenge for this layout.  My flowers were kind of clustered like the inspiration photo -found here.

Scroll down to the bottom of this post for directions on how to create this layout.

WorldWin Cardstock

Distress the edges of a 12 x 12 sheet of patterned paper.  Adhere to purple cardstock and machine stitch around the edges.  Use a brick stencil and modeling paste to add bricks under the area that the flower cluster will be.  When the paste is dry,  brush on the Truffle brown paint and allow to dry, then place the stencil back and spray with mist. Cut decorative rectangles from the patterned paper to mount the photo.  Paint the edges of the photo mount with metallic 3d paint.  Accent with ribbons.  Die cut decorative pieces from the Ornamental Add On and the Raindrops on Roses Dies. Coat the die cuts with watermark ink and heat emboss with green powder.  Stamp the flowers with watermark ink and heat emboss with gold powder and cut  with the matching die.  Ink the flower edges with purple and the inner areas with green ink.  Shape the flowers.  Add micro beads to the center of the flowers.  Stamp and cut the leaves with the corresponding die.  Stamp the trunk onto brown patterned paper.  Continue stamping onto different shades of paper to create a paper pieced trunk to add to the flower cluster.  Add gem flourishes to finish as shown.
