Together We Have It All...

Happy Hump Day!
Have you been enjoying the current collection by Heartfelt Creations....the Winking Frogs?
I love them!

This week I decided to incorporate a few different dies from a few past collections on my project! 
I've used a decorative die from the Everyday Heroes Die Collection, the Fleur Pocket Dies from the Flip Fold Album Collection, as well as the heart shape from the Timeless Amour Die set.

Allow me to show you...

I did a bunch of layering on this particular creation.  I loved the smaller, rectangular premade card embellishment panel with the fiddle'n frog and decided that he really needed to serenade the adorable frogs in love!  They were cut from one of the premade card panels within the collection.  

I stamped the lily pads and flowers and then heat embossed them with Stampendous Frantage Aged Hunter Embossing Powder.  It's a beautiful blend of greens and golds that leave a wonderful texture as well.  After embossing and die cutting the stamped images, I took the lily pads and sprinkled a little bit more around the edges and heated the pieces from underneath so the embossing powder didn't fly off.  

The flowers were sponged with light green and pink ink and then shaped.  I've added some pink Stickles to the tips of the flowers, prills to the centers and then a touch of Stickles to the prills as well.  

Here's a closer peek...

This collection is so cute and romantic, isn't it!!!
