Introducing the Classic Petunia.....

Hello and a big warm welcome to my blog!
I hope you'll enjoy the project I have created to share with you today!
If you're already a follower, you'll know that Wednesdays are a Heartfelt Creations share...and that the second Wednesday of the month always brings the new release!
This month I'd like to introduce to you the Classic Petunia...

Move on over spring, and let summer begin…the new Classic Petunia Collection by Heartfelt Creations has arrived!  No flower signifies summer more than the large trumpet shaped blossom of the gentle petunia!  Surround yourself with memories of wandering through greenhouses filled to the brim with a multitude of varieties in every color, from solids to variegated, compact to blanketing and of course those showy hanging baskets and container gardens spilling over with these heat loving flowers! The becomingly illustrated cling stamp sets found within this collection will have you planning your very own garden themed paper crafts filled with trailing petunias, bountiful bouquets and lavish petunia filled hanging baskets.  Three sizes of coordinating stamp and petal die cuts will allow you to recreate the ever popular petunia, making it easy to cut and shape the perfect blossom in the ideal size and color necessary for any project from handmade cards, scrapbook layouts and even altered art pieces.   A beautiful selection of premade card panels and scrapbook pages filled with illustrations of graceful petunias in hanging baskets, classic terra cotta pots and pretty garden scenes showcasing elegant petunia draped wishing wells and white washed garden benches allow for ease in creating any garden variety creations.  Filled with classic petunia pinks and deep purples along with pretty leaf like greens, the delicately patterned papers in this charming paper collection will transport you to your favorite garden plot!  So join with us as we usher in the summer season with the tender flowers of the new Classic Petunia Collection….no fertilizing, deadheading or watering required!  We promise!

If you've been a follower here for awhile (if you're not, feel free to follow along by selecting the link on the side bar), you'll also know that I am a huge fan of teapot projects!  
I've created a number in the past, and today I've toyed with yet another!
I mean come on...what could be better than a petunia filled teapot?

Allow me to share with you...

Mother's Day is this Sunday, and for those who have not yet started on their creations for mom I thought perhaps this would be a cute idea!

The petunias are so pretty and this is a wonderful flower to shape!

Here's a closer look at the flowers...

The tea pot box card template comes from the Silhouette Design store and has been cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  I thought it was just too cute to pass up doing something with and the petunias seemed perfect for this time of year as we are heading into greenhouses that are filled with rows and rows of them in any color imaginable!
A quick touch of glitter and a banner sentiment and the project was complete!

I hope you've enjoyed my share here today!  If you give this a try yourself I'd love to see your project!  Also, be sure to pop by the Heartfelt Creations blog to check out the amazing creations the rest of the design team have come up with for your inspiration!

Until next time...

Watch this tutorial to learn how to shape the Classic Petunia.

Choose designer paper from within the Classic Petunia Paper Collection that you wish to use for your teapot.  Cut teapot box file using Silhouette Cameo.  Ink all edges using a pink color ink and assemble box card.   Cut two small strips of card stock to create two sections within the box to adhere your flowers to and then adhere them to box center.  Stamp the large petunia cling stamp set twice onto white card stock using black ink.  Stamp two inkings of the small petunia cling stamp set onto white card stock using black ink.  Stamp one image of the large petunia bouquet from the classic petunia bouquet cling stamp set onto white card stock using black ink.  Color petunia bouquet image and adhere to the inside back panel of the teapot.  Color and shape petunia flowers and leaves as per video above.  Adhere shaped flowers to box card as shown.  (You will need to adhere some flowers to small strips of card stock to gain height, and then adhere the card stock strip to the box card middle rather than trying to adhere the flower to the horizontal center strips).  Cut sentiment strip from paper collection, shape gently and adhere to box card as shown.  Using a dries clear glue, glitter flower tips with Crystal Clear powder.
