Heartfelt Creations: Timless Amour Debut

Hello!  Today is the day for a breathtaking new release from Heartfelt Creations.  You are going to fall in love with this collection of stamps, dies and papers.  Vintage, romantic and timeless images paired with intricate dies and mouthwatering papers = LOVE!
Also, today Heartfelt Creations will be donating 10% of all Black Friday (Nov. 23rd) sales towards ChildCry, a non-profit feeding organization founded by Times Square Church.  I always appreciate when my shopping dollars go towards charitable organizations, too.  You will find the product list and instructions for this card below.

HCPC 3506-Passage to my Heart PreCut Set
HCD 728 Timeless Amour Die set
HCDP1 Timeless Amour Paper Collection
other supplies: White cardstock, Licorice ink by Clearsnap, Distress ink in Old Paper, vintage lace, May Arts Burlap string in burgundy, half pearl
Cut card base so that when folded it measures 5.5" x 5.5".  Cut 5.25" x 5.25" panel from Timeless Amour paper so that door and roses are the focal point.  Ink edges of white cardstock base with Old Paper distress ink.  Distress edges of Timeless Amour panel with fingernail or scissors.  Using paper from Timeless Amour and coordinating dies, cut two hearts from burgundy and white paper and layer them together.  Adhere finished heart to center of door image.  Stamp sentiment in black ink to the right of the door.  Weave burgundy twine through vintage lace and adhere to bottom of card.  Tie a loopy bow from the burgundy twine and add a half pearl to the center of the bow.

 Can you believe it? I was also inspired to make a 12 x 12 scrapbook layout using this collection!  I love going antiquing, and I always end up buying vintage photographs.  I always feel so bad, that someone didn't keep these old photos of their loved ones.  Makes me sad.  This photograph is one that I found this past summer.  I decided the colors and patterns were perfect to highlight this old photo.  You will find instructions and product guide below for recreating this page below.

Start with a 12 x 12 piece of kraft card stock and ink edges with Walnut Stain ink.  Cut Timeless Amour patterned paper to measure 11.5 x 11.5". Distress edges of paper and ink with Walnut Stain ink. Adhere to kraft card stock base.  Using black Timeless Amour patterned paper and Timeless Amour dies, cut two decorative scroll pieces.  Adhere using Glue Arts adhesive to top and bottom of antique photo.  Stamp Timeless Amour background onto white card stock in black ink.  Distress edges and ink with distress inks in Old Paper and Walnut Stain.  Adhere to back of antique photo so that the "LOVE" is sticking out of the back of photo on left.  Next stamp Bella Rose flourish and leaves in black onto white cardstock.  Use matching Bella Rose die to cut.  Ink leaves with Mellow Moss ink.  Next you will create a smaller and medium rose and a rose bud. Please see Emma Lou Beechy's tutorial HERE on how to create these roses.  Stamp three of the smallest Posy Patch images onto burgundy Timeless Amour patterned paper and use matching die to cut.  Shape and add a small half pearl to center.  Stamp "memories" sentiment in black onto white patterned paper and create a border for the bottom using MS border punch with the black patterned paper.
Now you can start putting your page together!  Adhere the vintage photograph in the center.  Add a seam binding bow to the top of photo and adhere a rose bud to center of bow with a glue dot.  Next glue down the Bella Rose leave/flourish in the loser left corner of photo.  Adhere the finished roses and posy flowers with glue and glue dots.  Adhere you "memories" sentiment to the lower right of vintage photo.
This is a close up of the paper roses I made.
