Heartfelt Thursday

Just switching things up a bit this week.  I usually post my Heartfelt Creations work on Wednesday, but this week has been a little hard for me.  I have a pretty bad cold and is really starting to wear me out.  I hope it goes away and soon!  It has sapped me clean of my creativity.  Thankfully I have a few HC projects waiting in the wings to share.  My picture of this card does not do it justice, it is just beautiful in real life.  I created the card using the following HC products:  HCPC 3315 Lily Petals; HCPC 3354 Classic Message; HCPC 3319 Simple Filler Stems; HCD 704 Perfect Petals dies & HCD 708 Fancy Window/Frame die.  I also used a Spellbinders plain oval die.



The card took me most of the day to make because I had to spend some time making the lilies, but when I was done I sure was pleased with what I created.   Three large petals were stamped on Stampin Up! Whisper White using Memento Angel Pink ink and then sponged with Rangers Spun Sugar distress ink.  They were rolled up to create the calla type lily and the end secured with strong adhesive (scor-tape). If you want to try making the lilies I would recommend that you use a relatively lightweight cardstock like Whisper White.  I tried making the lilies with PTI's Stampers Select White but found the cardstock was too thick to roll nicely.  The three lilies were then mounted on the oval that had been sponged with green ink.  The stems were stamped, trimmed out and arranged over the lilies.  Then everything was mounted on the card base. 

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Shimmer White & Stampin Up! Pink Pirouette & Whisper White; Stamps:  Heartfelt Creations: Dies:   Spellbinders & Heartfelt Creations; Lily stems:  Jolee's Boutique; White silk ribbon

Wow! Rosie, I LOVE this card! Calla Lilies are one of my favorite flowers. . .so elegant! What a gorgeous creation! Beautifully done, my friend! I sure hope you feel better soon! Sounds like quite a few people are suffering with colds right now. Another reason to dislike (hate) winter!!
