HCPC 3323 large elegant word background precut set
HCD 723 garden romance die
rose creations shapeabilities
elegant posts shapeabilities
fancy tags two shapeabilities
foliage shapeabilities

i begun stamping the cracked edge from HC broken cinder blocks set on a white cardstock. then i stitched the blue edge on top of it. i used the crafter’s workshop "bricks" mask to create the background. i stamped the manor house from HC brookside manor set and the large tree from HC birch tree set on both sides of the brick background. for the flowery heart i used HC twining roses set.

i die cut the circles with picot edge circles nestabilities die and stamped the wording from HC large elegant word background set on the large circle. to embellish them further i added small pearls.

then i cut AXL out and adhered it with 3d tape onto a blue rectangle. i cut 4 garden fences with HC garden romance die to create the long fence on which my cat is standing.

using the HC bird haven set and HC garden romance die i stamped and cut the bird house. i die cut one of the posts from the elegant posts shapeabilities die and “hang” the bird house on it. for the little birdies i used  HC brookside manor set and HC garden romance die.

i stamped the flowers with HC botanical floral 2 set and HC botanical floral 1 set, die cut them with the rose creations shapeabilities die, assembled the blossoms and attached them together with a pearl brad. i stamped and cut the leaves with HC leaf medley set and foliage shapeabilities die.

i wrote the title using the crafter’s workshop alphabet template “perky letters”. i cut two tags with the fancy tags two shapeabilities die to create the base for my title.

i hope you enjoyed today's post!
