Heartfelt Wednesday

Yep, its Wednesday and that means a Heartfelt Creations post.  Today I'm posting an altered project I made using the Heartfelt Creations set HCPC 2291 Regal Poinsettia 2 and the matching Spellbinders Blossom 2 dies. 

I had a tin that used to hold a bunch of felt flowers (the tin came from Stampin Up!).  My little guy had long since raided the tin for many of its felty "treasures" and I had given some away, so I had an empty tin.  Perfect for embellishing with my layered poinsettias.  I stamped and diecut three of the large poinsettia flowers and then stamped and diecut 6 of the small poinsettia from patterned paper (Prima's Angelique line).  I then cut away the "bottom" layer from two of the large flowers and four of the small.  The flowers were then glittered up with Stickles and set aside to dry.  I traced the lid of the tin on to my patterned paper (Angelique), trimmed out and then I sanded the edges a bit.  I adhered the paper using Scor-Tape.  The side of the tin was covered with pink grosgrain ribbon using Scor-Tape.  Once the flowers were dried I adhered them together and arranged them on the tin.  I finished the tin by adding some pearl flourishes from Zva Creative that I had cut apart.

Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Patterned paper:  Prima Angelique; Tin:  Stampin Up!; Ribbon:  Stampin Up! pink; Stamps:  Heartfelt Creations; Ink:  Stampin Up! Cherry Cobler; Zva Creative pearl flourishes; Scor-Tap

Wait, wait, wait... WAIT just a minute! Do you mean that you are actually supposed to re-use those precious tins that are ALL that precious BEFORE embellishing? Well, now you have a treasure to REALLY treasure! Goodness, gracious! All that bling and pearly wonder! YUMM-MEEEE! What a fantastic piece, Madame Rose! Wow!!!!!
