Wednesday at Heartfelt Creations

Products Used on This Project

HCPC 3361 Semper Augustus Tulips PreCut Set
HCD 709 Springtime Medley Die

Other: Spellbinders Petite Oval Large, Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Ovals Small

I started with a 8.5X8.5 piece of card stock. Scored all 4 sides at 2.5 and cut up 2 of the sides so I could fold them inward to form the basket. The handle measures 1.5 X 11 and 1 X 11. I used a border punch on the smaller piece of the handle. I cut (4) 2.25x2.25 and (4) 2.25 X 3.25. Now you can either cut and place smaller design paper on or as I did just emboss and attach those to the basket. I used scor tape to assemble the basket together. After it was together I stamped and cut out my images. Using 3D dots attached the image to the scalloped piece and attached to the basket.

Products Used on This Project

HCPC 3374 Flora Grande 2
HCPC Flora Grande 1
Blossoms 3 Nestie
HCPC 3376 Distressed Leaves
Nested Leaves

HCD 711 Decorative Dutch Iris Die

Card measures 5X5. I cut the green 1/4 each smaller. Using Versa Mark I stamped flowers randomly around to create back ground paper. I cut 2 of the swirly dies out, cut them into and placed one in each corner. Stamped 5 flowers, 3 different sizes and cut those out. I shaded, spritzed and shaped them then using a brad put them together. Using a Z Dot, placed it in the center of my card. Stamped 4 leaves on green card stock and cut those out, sponged and shaped. Attached them just under the flower. Added pearls around to finish the card.
Products Used on This Project

HCPC 3376 Distressed Leaves PreCut Set
Nested Leaves Nestie
HCPC 3377 Sympathy Sentiment

Card is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2. I was able to make this whole card using scraps form my basket except for the card base. I stared by putting design paper with solid and attaching to the card. Added ribbon and bow to one side. Stamped the sentiment and attached it with 3 D dots to the center of the card. Stamped and cut out several leaves which I placed just under the Rose. Finished the card by placing several gems along side the sentiment.

Hope yall have a blessed day! I'll catch up with ya later..........

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous creations, Olga! WOW...the basket is just too cute and the card is over the top gorgeous! Now, we need to have a talk about this Carolina thing.....a DUKE fan never pulls for UNC Chapel Hill :) I pull for WF, Clemson, N.C. State but not the Tar Heels. All joking aside, we both have our teams in the NCAA so we can root them on!!!
