Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms

Today I want to share with you two projects using Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms collection.  For this first card, I used only the paper collection.  Begin with a 6"x6" teal card stock base.  From the Birds and Blooms Paper Collection, add a 5 3/4" DP background. Create a vertical border, 2 1/2" x 5 3/4" from another piece of DP, back with teal card stock and mount offset on the right side of the card base.  

Using detail scissors, trim out the rose corner embellishment, cutting out 3 additional flowers. Attach to card as shown in the example.  Use dimensional foam to mount the extra flowers to create a 3D look.

Find the tag with 3 bluebirds and trim out the center panel.  Trim out an additional bird and another wing.  Add to the first bird with dimensional foam. Add the ticket sentiment to the top of the tag.  Add Ice Crystal Stickles to the flower centers.

For my next project, I began with a glossy card stock tag; 4 1/8" x 8 1/2".  To this I added a DP background, 3 7/8" x 8 1/4", trimming the corners to match the tag.  Cut the fancy border from the Ornate Borders and Pockets die set from glossy card stock and adhere to the bottom of the tag with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  Stamp the Birds and Blooms Collage stamp onto glossy card stock with Versamark ink, embossing with clear embossing powder.  Swirl in some color using Memento inks: Teal Zeal, Cantaloupe, New Sprout and Rose Bud.  Take a tissue and buff any excess ink off the stamped image.  Trim this down to 3 3/8" x 5 1/8" and add a glossy mat behind it.  Mount onto the tag as shown above.  Add the Happy Birthday tag from the paper collection to the upper corner of the panel.

Using Versamark ink, stamp the branch with flowers and the birds from the Birds and Blooms stamp set and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Use the matching dies from the Birds and Blooms die set to cut them out.  For the branch and flowers, color with Memento Bamboo Leaves, Rich Cocoa and Rose Bud.  For the bird, use Memento Rose Bud and Teal Zeal.  Use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to give some dimension to the leaves, flowers and birds.  Adhere the branch to the tag with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  Add the bird with dimensional foam.  Lastly, add Minnie Pearls Prills to the flower centers.
