Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout featuring stamps, dies and patterned paper from the Heartfelt Creations Backyard Blossoms collection. I adore the coneflowers and other blooms that are its focus. In addition to patterned paper, there are three stamp sets with matching dies that are part of the collection. I’ve used the set called ‘Blossoming Coneflower’. I stamped the images with Ranger archival black ink and coloured them with Chameleon pens. These pens were absolutely perfect for this project – I could achieve gradation of colour in the petals and leaves with a single pen. Supplies Used: Heartfelt Creations patterned paper, stamps and dies, MultiCraft flakes, glue, letter stickers and wooden butterfly, Chameleon Color Tone pens, Ranger ink, Glue Dots Adhesives, corrugated cardboard, doily.
I used the Heartfelt Creations Backyard Blossoms collection and Blossoming Coneflower stamp with coordinating die.
I stamped the Heartfelt Creations stamp using Ranger Archival ink. After colouring the stamped image with Chameleon Color Tone pens, I cut out the image with the matching Heartfelt Creations die. These dies cut beautifully and cut out all the space between the stems that would have been impossible to do with scissors.
In order to add some texture and interest to the coneflowers, I used Micro Beads and Flakes and by Craft Decor and CraftMedley fabric glue. These are brands owned by MultiCraft and I was able to purchase them at my local dollar store. Just smear the glue on the flower, sprinkle with flakes and let dry. The title letters are also a MultiCraft brand, Forever in Time.
Here’s a close up of a flower. Aren’t those sparkly flakes perfect for the cone?
I stuck everything together with adhesive products from Glue Dots. The all-purpose dots were perfect for adhering embellishments and the permanent glue tape worked great to attach paper and photos to the project. Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapbooking!
