Introducing Buttons and Blooms

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I am excited with the release of the very beautiful Buttons and Blooms collection from Heartfelt Creations.  I am sharing a card that I have made with the gorgeous flowers and buttons.

For more inspiration from the other design team members please visit the Heartfelt Creations blog here: https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/blog/755/debuting-the-buttons-and-blooms-collection

Beautiful floral fabric, delicate trimmings and charming buttons accompanied by delicate hand-stitch work, and precise patchwork become a most exquisite project in the hands of an experienced seamstress! While sewing may not be a talent gifted to everyone, you can now experience the same stunning results in your paper crafts with the Buttons and Blooms Collection from Heartfelt Creations! An inviting paper collection bound in delightfully vibrant hues of bright blues, happy yellows, pretty pinks and robust reds boast alluring patterns of dainty florals, fun filled polka dots and quilt like patterns which will beckon you to caress them as you would the beautiful bolts of material found in your favorite fabric store! “Applique” cards and scrapbook pages quickly and with ease using the striking yet functional premade card panels designed in varying sizes and patterns! Embellish your handmade creations with a variety of hand-stitched accents found in the gorgeous assembling of cling stamp sets and coordinating dies. Choose from delicately embroidered sentiments, stitched banners, charming patchwork pockets, decorative patches and rick rack trim, all lending that personal handmade touch to your crafty creations! Lastly, “hem” your projects with fetching blossoms that have been skillfully illustrated to give them the appearance of having been cut from patchwork fabric! Designed in three varying sizes, these pleasing posies are ideal for using as flat embellishments, or layered to create wonderful dimensional blooms! So, come along with us…grab your shears, patterned papers and patchwork die cuts and let’s head into the craft room! Bobbins, threads and sewing machines not required!

Instructions:

Cut a piece of white cardstock 12” x 6”, score at 6” along the long side and fold to create a 6” x 6” card.  Die cut the semi-circular medallion out of the blue pearlescent card and adhere to the left of the top of the card. Cut a piece of blue patterned paper 6”x 6 and adhere to the base card.   Cut a 6” x 6” panel and tear down about 1/3rd as shown to the left of the top.  Distress the edges and adhere to the blue patterned paper.  Roll the edges over and adhere down with Dries Clear glue.

Stamp the rose vine images from the HCPC-3834 Leafy Accents Stamp set in Library Green ink on white cardstock and colour in with Leaf Green and Fern Green inks before die cutting with the coordinating die.  Shape using the coordinating mold and when dry adhere around the opening of the paper and cascading down the card and to the bottom right.

Stamp the leaves from the HCPC-3811 Rain Boots and Blossoms Stamp set in Fern Green ink on white cardstock.  Colour in with Leaf Green ink and die cut with the coordinating die.  Shape lightly and adhere around the rose vine leaves.

Stamp the flower images from the HCPC-3859 Buttons and Bloom Stamp set on the Super White cardstock in a variety of colours – Vibrant Pink, Forget-Me-Knot, and Buttercup.  Colour the pink flowers lightly with Vibrant Fuchsia, blue flowers with French Ultramarine and the yellow flowers with Buttercup inks and die cut with the coordinating dies.  Colour the blue flowers on the edges with Majestic Violet inks.  Shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit and add Crystal Clear glitter with Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge and then adhere over the leaves as shown.

Stamp the button images from the HCPC-3859 Buttons and Bloom Stamp set on white cardstock in a variety of colours – Vibrant Pink, Forget-Me-Knot, and Buttercup, and Vermillion.  Colour the pink buttons lightly with Vibrant Fuchsia, blue buttons with French Ultramarine and the yellow buttons with Buttercup ink and the red buttons with Vermillion inks and die cut with the coordinating dies.  Adhere the buttons to the centres of the flowers and on the card around the flowers as shown.

Wind the florist wire around a small paintbrush and trim to adhere around the flowers with Dries Clear glue.

Stamp the sentiment from the HCPC-3851 Handstitched Accents Stamp set in Jet Black ink on watercolour paper.  Watercolour the image and die cut with the coordinating die.  Adhere to the card using foam dots.

This is such a fun collection and another must have for your craft collection.
