Heartfelt Creations: Designing for another term!

Hello! Happy Halloween!  I do not have anymore Halloween creations to share with you, but I do have some beautiful, Heartfelt Creations projects.  I had fun playing with my Gelatos on the card above! You can find a complete supply list and instructions for remaking this card below:

HCPC 3500-Open Vintage Floret PreCut Set
HCPC 3504-Bold Vintage Floret Background PreCut Set
HCD 727 Vintage Floret Die Set
HCDP1 227 Vintage Floret Paper Collection
HCD 725-Decorative Metal Fixtures die set
159723 – Art Institute Glue
Faber Castell Gelatos
other supplies:  kraft and black cardstock, watercolor paper, small tag, rhinestones, Staz-On black ink, Ranger distress ink in Walnut Stain, water pen
Fold kraft cardstock base so it measures 5.5" x 4.25".  Cut watercolor paper to measure 5.25" x 4".  Stamp background image onto lower left corner of watercolor paper in black ink.Use purple gelato crayon and color around border of water color panel. Use water pen or watercolor brush to lighten the color and pull it towards the center of the card.  Now use a green gelato to add color to the swirls behind the  flowers.  Let dry and then distress edges with ink and fingernail or scissors.  Stamp Vintage Floret flowers (one large and two small) that match the sizes on the background stamp onto pink patterned paper and use coordinating die to cut. Shape flowers and then adhere to background image. Add rhinestones to the centers.  I used my computer and printer to make a sentiment for the tag. After adding distress ink to the edges, I adhered it behind my flowers, letting the strings trail down.  Use the decorative metal fixture die to cut a corner piece out of black cardstock and adhere to upper right corner of white watercolor panel. Adhere finished watercolor panel to kraft cardstock base.
 I made a little mini altered canvas in the photo above.  I didn't have to do much altering, as the journal box from the Delicate Asters paper collection says it all!  The supply list and instructions for recreating this project are below:

HCPC 3303-Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set
HCD 701-Posy Patch dies
HCDP1 226-Delicate Asters Paper Collection
159723 – Art Institute Glue
other supplies: 4x4 canvas, Wasabi Green acrylic paint by Americana; Martha Stewart decoupage glue and sealer; ivory seam binding, vintage lace, gold rhinestones (Michaels), Memento Tuxedo Black ink; white card stock
paint 4x4 canvas with green acrylic paint and let dry.  Apply journal box from Delicate Asters Paper collection to center. Use decoupage glue to seal to front of canvas.  When dry, apply strip of lace to bottom of canvas.  Stamp three of the smallest posy shapes onto white card stock and use matching dies to cut.  Color center with yellow marker and adhere rhinestone to center of each.  Adhere the finished flowers to the flower vines on the journal box.  Make a bow out of seam binding and adhere to lower left corner of canvas. Add a rhinestone to the center of the bow.
