Have a Sweet Day...

Welcome crafty friends!
I'm so glad you're able to pop by for a visit today!
It's another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, and I have another share for you today featuring the Lush Lilac Collection!

Let's take a peek....

I fell in love with the premade card panel with the birds and thought it would make a great image for an any occasion card!  I used the Eyelet Oval Basics dies to cut out the main image and to create the frame for it. I glittered the frame using a Qtip along with a dries clear adhesive and transparent glitter. I adhered it to a smaller piece of decorative patterned paper to create the frame. I've then used pop dots to the back of the frame and adhered it to the focal image which I have stamped first with a sentiment from the Lush Lilac Collection.

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

As you can see in the lower corner of the photo, I've also added a coordinating bird from the Singing in the Rain Collection. I've done two small lilac sprays on the top and bottom of the frame to give it some added interest.

To create the lilac cluster on the bottom of the card, I've used the floral cluster from the Lush Lilac and Umbrella Spray Cling Stamp Set as a background layering piece.  I've then added the small bird and my shaped lilac blossoms.  The Lush Lilac shaping mold makes shaping these delicate blossoms so quick and easy!

Here's a closer look at the lilac cluster on the bottom of the card...

I've added glitter everywhere on this card...in person the sparkle is magnificent!
I've also added some pink hued Dew Drops around the flowers to add some more visual interest!
I really wish this card would have photographed better as it is more beautiful in person...and the sun just wasn't cooperating with me to get these photos done!

Anyway, I hope that you've found a bit of creative inspiration here today!

Project Supplies & Instructions

For more tips on using the Lush Lilac Collection, please see this video
Create a 5” x 7” card base from white card stock. Locate the layout page with the scroll and lilac cluster within the Lush Lilac Paper Collection as well as the designer paper with purple brocade style background. Cut the scroll image section to be just slightly smaller than your card base and die cut decorative edge using the Fleur Border Basics Die and your die cutting machine.  

Next, die cut the coordinating eyelet border from the Fleur Borders Basics Die from white card stock using your die cutting machine. Using a sponge or Qtip, spread some dries clear adhesive over the eyelet border and sprinkle with the Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter. Adhere to back of matting piece with decorative edge/scroll image. Now cut and add the section of purple decorative paper to the back of the mat making sure that when they are adhered together they will measure just slightly smaller than your card base. Ink all edges of the card front panel you’ve just created with ColorBox Wisteria Ink. Adhere card front to card base.

Using the oval die cuts, create a frame using the eyelet oval and the oval the next size down. Next, continue with the oval dies and cut another frame one size down from the eyelet oval using your die cutting machine and a piece of coordinating decorative paper. Ink the inside edge of the decorative paper frame with ColorBox Wisteria Ink. Adhere frames together, and using a sponge or Qtip add Designer Dries Clear Glue to outer white frame and sprinkle with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter.

Locate the premade card panel with the bird image within the paper collection as shown. Using the two sets of Eyelet Oval & Basics dies, die cut the bird image from the card panel so it will fit behind the oval frame you have created. Ink all edges of the oval with ColorBox Wisteria Ink. Using VersaFine Black Ink, stamp sentiment onto oval bird panel. Using pop dots, adhere bird panel to back of frame. Adhere frame to card front as shown.

Next stamp two inkings of the smallest lilac cluster from the Lush Lilac Cling Stamp Set, and one inking of the lilac cluster from the Lush Lilac and Umbrella Spray Cling Stamp Set onto white card stock using ColorBox Concord Ink. Die cut using die cutting machine and coordinating dies. Color all lilac images and blossoms using Stack and Store daubers with a combination of ColorBox Wisteria and Memento Lilac Posies inks. For foliage color using combination of ColorBox Olive Pastel and Lime Pastel inks. 
Stamp one inking of the bird image from the Songs of Spring Cling Stamp Set, die cut using coordinating die and color using Memento Danube Blue and Morocco inks.
Shape stamped embellishment background pieces using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Shape lilac blossoms using 3D Lush Lilac Shaping Mold and Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit as shown in video link above. 
Adhere the two smallest lilac clusters to oval frame as shown. Adhere large stamped lilac cluster image over where scroll appears on the decorative paper. Add shaped lilac blossoms to small clusters on frame and to large cluster on bottom corner of card as shown. Trim off the bit of branch under the birds tail and tuck into cluster as shown. 

For finishing, using fine metal glue tip with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, apply Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter to all pre-printed imagery on card front as well as all shaped lilac blossoms. Adhere dew drops around flower clusters and prills to shaped flower centers.
