Imagine a pristinely decorated, old fashioned parlor filled with charming antiques, vintage wallpaper and the finest assembling of handsome rose patterned china offering up delectable treats and deliciously fragrant tea! Amidst the refreshments, and scattered throughout the quarters you are drawn to lavish rose bouquets in every color imaginable, plucked from the pristine rose garden just outside the elegantly draped garden doors. As you glance around it is clear that this exquisite sitting room has been adorned for a very special occasion! Heartfelt Creations invites you to sit, relax and indulge as they unveil the new Blushing Rose Collection! Soft in hues and striking in patterns, this newest rose themed release will have you reminiscing of old fine bone china, lace tablecloths, and elegantly wallpapered sitting rooms. Delicate images of swirling roses, fluttering butterflies and vintage scripted postcards nestled among old fashioned wallpaper like stripes, beautiful brocades and decorative lace accents have been gently set against calming tones of pale yellows, mixed blends of greenish blues, and soft lilacs. The delicate, illustrations of rose clusters and single stemmed roses found within the cling stamp sets will bring back memories of the ravishing patterns on Grandma’s finest tableware that were kept behind glass and only made an appearance for the grandest of occasions. Paired together with the coordinating stamps, the ornate dies in this collection will allow you to create enamoring rose motif die cuts perfect for all of your paper crafting needs. A large focal background stamp, along with a full assembling of all occasion sentiments are the perfect window dressings to complete your soft and romantic vintage style rose themed creations. We invite you to enjoy the finest in paper crafting as we present the Blushing Rose Collection!
Allow me to walk you through a few images that show you each of these project individually.
Let's start with the adorable miniature tea pot!
I thought that the beautiful rose filled paper was the perfect base for a china like looking tea pot!
I've added some Inka Gold to the edges of the project to give it a vintage shimmer, and I've also inked all of the edges with a soft brown color as well. I thought the pearl on the top was just the icing on the cake!
I've crated a small rose cluster with some of the stamped images in the collection, as well as a dimensional hand shaped rose. I've also incorporated some chipboard foliage from Creative Embellishments into the floral cluster. I've painted it with Inka Gold so it too had a gold vintage feeling.
Of course we couldn't enjoy tea together if we didn't have a cup and saucer...
I've applied the same inking with the brown colored ink and the Inka Gold finishing so it matched the tea pot. I've created another dimensional rose along with some leaf foliage and adhered it to the base of the cup. I've added some Creative Embellishments chipboard into this design as well.
I had so much fun creating this little set!
I hope you've enjoyed seeing it and have been inspired to give an altered art piece a try yourself!

Tea Pot - Using white card stock, electronic die cutting machine and SVG cut file, cut base of teapot. Adhere together using a strong paper glue. Using your choice of patterned paper, die cut decorative paper pieces for tea pot and adhere using a strong paper glue as per instructions accompanying cut file purchase. Once adhesive is dry, using a light brown color, ink all seams of tea pot and lid. Then using your finger tip, apply a light touch of Inka Gold over the same areas to achieve an antiqued vintage look resembling that on older fine china. Stamp the rose and bud flower cluster from the Blushing Rose Swirls Cling Stamp Set onto white card stock using VersaMark ink, apply gold embossing powder and set with heat tool. Color using Chameleon Markers. Cut using coordinating die. Shape slightly using flower shaping kit and adhere to tea pot as shown. Stamp one inking of the middle sized rose flower images, as well as the leaf image from the Classic Rose Cling Stamp set and once again heat emboss using gold embossing powder. Color using Chameleon Markers and die cut using coordinating die. Using a spritz of water to the backside of each flower piece, shape using your deluxe flower shaping tool kit and assemble to make one rose. Shape leaves as well. Adhere flower over top stamped flower image already adhered to tea pot. Cut a few pieces of vine from chipboard, paint with Inka Gold and adhere to floral cluster. Snip leaf and tendril die cut into two, shape and use to fill in areas needing a little more foliage. Add a touch of Inka Gold to white pearl and adhere to top of tea pot.
Cup and Saucer - follow same steps as used above only using cup and saucer cutting file. Stamp, emboss, color and die cut petal pieces for one small rose and foliage. Shape and adhere to cup and saucer set. Apply same inking and chipboard treatments you have used on tea pot.
