Warm summer breezes have begun to cool, and daylight hours have started to shorten…tall grasses rustle in the wind preparing to make their way to seed, and leaves slowly begin their tumble to the ground to insulate the earth for the cooler upcoming season. As summer begins to fade, and the bright hues of heat loving flora's dim, it is then that the graceful aster takes the limelight and becomes the crowning glory of the autumn season, lending it one last burst of color with their blends of pretty purples, pleasing pinks, and blazing blues! Join us as we bid summer farewell and celebrate the arrival of the autumn season with the Wild Aster Collection from Heartfelt Creations! Take a walk among the last perennial wildflowers of the waning summer season as you delve into a paper collection draped in light and airy asters hued in vibrant fuchsias and pretty purples, all accented with glorious greens, precious pinks and tranquil creams. Enjoy alluring backgrounds filled with dainty lace like accents, grand vintage style stripes, and beautiful brocades, all ready to set the stage for captivating aster arrangements! A lovely assembling of cling stamp sets filled with pleasing aster illustrations unite to create pretty wildflower sprays and elegant bouquets, while a stunning collection of beautifully illustrated aster petal images, when paired with the corresponding dies, join together harmoniously to create light, airy, dimensional aster flowers perfect for creating elegant autumn inspired floral clusters! So, grab your sweater and join us for one last walk through the garden as we take in the simplicity and beauty of the glorious wild aster!
