Heartfelt Wednesday

Another Wednesday has rolled around, which means it is time to share some more projects from Heartfelt Creations, but even better, is that it is new release day. This is such a beautiful collection, and quite different to the recent ones. The colours are so prerry to work with, and who doesn't love daisies.

Here's a little more about the new collection from the designer:

Brighten your world with the sparkling colors and mesmerizing motifs of Peacock Paisley, the exquisite spring release from Heartfelt Creations.  This lush collection sparkles with jewel tones of topaz, sapphire, amber, emerald and turquoise.  The artistic flair of exotic peacocks, intricate paisleys, frilled feathers and delightful daisies will captivate your imagination and energize your creativity.  Six sumptuous sets of intricately designed, deeply etched red rubber stamps are the perfect companions to a vibrant paper collection that is overflowing with card fronts, cut apart pages, vivid artwork, pre-designed layouts and beautifully layered backgrounds.  The Delightful Daisy Die cuts 7 perfect floral layers with one pass through your cutting system.  Whether you want to preserve life's most beautiful moments, create with mixed media techniques or design keepsake cards, you'll be proud as a peacock to present the sophisticated elegance of Peacock Paisley.
Heartfelt Creations March Release Peacock Paisley Collection.

The first project I have to share is a fun flap card. I've made a few of these lately, and I think they are quite cute. There are two flaps with extra panels attached to each so that as you open and close the card, the flaps interlock with each other. I've also added  the flowers onto the different layers of the card so that they work as separate clusters when open, but combine to a large embellishment when closed.

Next up is a layout. I happened to have these peacock photos from the Bronx Zoo some years ago. I really enjoyed using the feather stamp on this one to create extra embellishments.

Of course the instructions to these and many more projects are over on the Heartfelt Creations blog, and don't forget you can add them to Pinterest or print them too. It always amazes me that we can all come up with such different projects using the exact same products. Which one is your favourite this week?
