enjoy life {DT work for heartfelt creations}

hello scrappy friends!

i've got some pretty FABULOUS news today - i've been invited to join the heartfelt creations AMAZING design team for another term! YAY! having been on this team has allowed me to step out of my box and learn a lot. and i'm always amazed at the beauty displayed on their blog!

make sure to visit the HEARTFELT CREATIONS's blog today to see the results of the voting and say HELLO to the newest members of the design team.

and here is my project for this week's HEARTFELT CREATIONS wednesday reveal -


heartfelt creations products used on this project:
HCPC 3465 palisade farmstead precut set
 HCPC 3374 flora grande 2 precut set 
 HCPC 3375 flora grande 1 precut set
 HCPC 3405 leaf medley precut set 
 HCD 714 decorative layered basket die
 HCD 702 decorative butterfly border die
 HCD 720 western broncos die
 HCD 721 rustic western elements die
 elegant posts shapeabilities
 blossoms 3 nestabilities 
 foliage shapeabilities

i started with a white cardstock, Prima marketing foliage mask and a bottle of ranger perfect perals mists "forever green". i place the mask on the cardstock, but instead of spraying the perfect pearls, i used a sponge brush to color the mask and the edges. i added a second colour at the edges with tim holtz' "tea dye" distress ink pad.  for a step-by-step tutorial on how to create a custom made background paper, click HERE.

when it dried i punch the decorative edge using martha stewart “pansies” punch around the page set and stitched the blue borders, while adding some of the fussy cut paper elements {i used the wonderful wesbter’s pages “wonderfall” collection}.

i glued the picture on pattern paper, shaped the two long edges with martha stewart “Doliy” edge punch and embossed them slightly to add extra dimension to my page. using HC decorative butterfly border die i cut two borders from reddish pattern paper. added them under the picture and placed it on the layout. then i arranged and glued the rest of my fussy cut elements around the photograph.

Stamp a long wooden fence and three small ones {HC palisade farmstead set} on a brown cardstock, die cut them with HC rustic western elements die and adhere them below and next to the picture. Using HC decorative layered basket die and HC western broncos die cut the dark green foliage elements.

Stamp large and small leaves with HC leaf medley set on a light green cardstock, die cut them {shapeabilities foliage}, emboss the individual leaves and arrange them, together with the dark green foliage, on the wooden fences.

for the flowers i stamped different blossoms with HC flora grande 2 set and HC flora grande 1 set, die cut them {nestabilities blossoms 3}, separated and shaped the petals by hand. then, i glued the blossoms together and added glitter glue in the middle.

to finish off my project i added glitter glue dots and rhinestones.

i hope you enjoyed today's post!

have a lovely creative week!

hugs 'n smiles,
