"Does Old Man Winter have you firmly in his grip? Chase the winter blues away with a breath of springtime! Heartfelt Creations is pleased to present the "Birds and Blooms" collection: a virtual spring garden that's lovely as a song! Shades of cherry blossom pink, robin's egg blue, and soft leafy green fill sunny garden scenes featuring bluebirds, blooming branches, picket fences, bird baths, bird houses, butterflies and frilly hydrangeas. Dozens of stunning card fronts, pre-designed layouts, borders, sentiments and artwork are the perfect remedy for mid-winter doldrums. Six hand-drawn stamp sets feature blossom laden branches, nesting birds, garden scenes and an elegant collage. Two sets of dies coordinate with papers and stamps allowing you to add realistic blossoms, branches and birds to your artwork. Take a well-deserved break from the bleak landscape of winter and escape to a colorful springtime garden where birds chirp, flowers bloom, and soft breezes lift your spirit and inspire your creativity!"
I absolutely love this new collection and to show off this new collection I created a Bird Bath Shadow Box featuring the stamps and dies from the Birds and Blooms Collection. I began by adhering a 6" x 6" chipboard piece to the bottom of the cigar box/lid with Zip Dry Glue to prevent the lid from closing and I also adhered a 6" x 6" chipboard piece to the inside of the lid (which will be your base where the bird bath sits) to add stability. Next I applied Gesso to the entire cigar box. Then I painted the box with Walnut Brown Metallic 3D Stamp paint using a sponge brush. It may take several coats of 3D Stamp Paint for full coverage.
Please go to the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see more creations from the Design Team using the new Birds and Blooms Collection. Have a great day!
