Heartfelt Creations Wednesday-Welcome Slate


Welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday.  This week's project is features a few of the beautiful beautiful flower precut sets and dies, along with the Cardinal Family PreCut set and dies.  I thought it would be a good idea to be able to show how you can use these for something other than cards or layouts.  Again it shows how versatile Heartfelt Creations products are.

How it is made:
Stamp several of all sizes of each of the daisy and posy stamps.  Color the stamped images with Copic markers.  Cut out the colored images using a die cut machine and the matching die cuts to go with each stamp.  Using the Paper Blossoms Molding Mat and Tool kit to shape your flowers and then use Zip Dry glue and layer the flowers together to give them dimension.  Add colored gemstones to the center of the flowers and attach to slate plaque.  Stamp several of the smallest leaves from the Botanical Floral 2 set.  Cut them out using a die cut machine and the die from the Rose Creations dies.  Add the leaves to the slate plaque, tucking them between the flowers.  Stamp sentiment from the Door to my Heart PreCut Set on vellum using Staz-On ink Jet Black.  Rip the edges of the vellum to size and attach to slate plaque.  Attach two flowers over the corners of the vellum to help hide the tape marks on the vellum.  Stamp two of the largest cardinal stamp from the Cardinal Family PreCut set on white card stock with Tuxedo Black ink.  Color both images with Copic Markers and cut out using die cut machine and die from Cardinal Family dies.  Attach one cardinal to other cardinal using Pop Dot in the center of the image and Zip Dry glue at both head and tail to give cardinal dimension.  Attach to slate plaque near sentiment.  Make a bow with the green organza ribbon and the Bow Easy.  Attach bow to slate plaque under the cardinal.
