Beautiful Day Card
Heartfelt Creations is pleased to release its Beary Fun Retreat Collection today and I am sharing the my Beautiful Day Card featuring the collection. This is what Heartfelt Creations has to say about its newest release:
"Long days filled with sunshine begin to fade and the crisp evening breezes begin to call for cozy wool knit sweaters as the fall season slowly ushers out the lazy days of summer! Along with the falling leaves and a last surge of floral blossoms, autumn brings with it a more relaxed and reflective way of life and a reminder that winter will soon be around the corner. Autumn also brings with it a fun that only autumn can bring…playing in crisp piles of fallen leaves, picnics with warm beverages, cozy evenings spent around the campfire and exploring fields filled with rows and rows of sunflowers bowing their heads giving way to the season! Even the animals of the forest recognize and celebrate the subtle arrival of autumn, spending their last few days before hibernation playing and making preparations for the arrival of the upcoming winter season. Come along with us and join in our fall festivities as we go on one final fun filled retreat with the Beary Fun Retreat Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Filled with delightful and captivating illustrations of adorable bears, this autumn themed collection is sure to appeal to all ages! Perfect for celebrating an array of occasions, this fun loving assembling of stamps, dies and decorative papers will bring a whimsical and lighthearted touch to all of your paper crafting creations. The dynamic paper collection boasts a color palette filled with beautiful tones of burnt oranges, rusty reds, midnight blues, along with leaf like greens and golden yellows all mixed with checkered plaids, decorative stripes and gorgeous imagery of blooming sunflowers and falling leaves. Three sets of detailed cling stamps with coordinating dies allow you to join in the fall themed fun of a charismatic bear family enjoying their last retreat before winter sets in. Whether sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows near an adorable treehouse, enjoying songs strummed out quietly on guitar, or filling up on delightful meals of honey, these cute images are ideal for embellishing all of your fall themed cards and scrapbook layouts! So throw on a cozy sweater, grab a cup of hot cocoa and join in the fun as we enjoy one last “beary” fun filled autumn retreat!"
My Beautiful Day Card features the Beary Fun Retreat Paper Collection and stamps from the Sunflower Accents Stamp Set and the coordinating dies from the Die Set.

Instructions: Create an A2 sized card out of white cardstock. Cut an A2 sized card front from the Beary Fun Retreat Paper Collection and die cut the center image using the coordinating die from the Cut Mat Create 1A Die set. Sponge outer edges of A2 design paper card front with Potter's Clay Memento Ink and adhere to card base with pop dots. Adhere die cut center image directly to the card base with Dries Clear Adhesive. Cut the "Beautiful Day" sentiment from the design paper and sponge edges with Cantaloupe Memento Ink and adhere to card as shown. On white cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink stamp the acorn border image and the two sunflowers from the Sunflower Accent Stamp Set and the fence from the Wildwood Cottage Accents Stamp Set and die cut all with coordinating dies. Cut fence in half and cut the acorn border so that you are only using the leaf and acorn on the end. Color the fence with Toffee Crunch and Desert Sand Memento Inks; the sunflowers with Potter's Clay in the center and the petals with Peanut Brittle and then Cantaloupe on the petal edges; the sunflower stems and leaves with New Sprout and Olive Grove and then lightly add Pearlescent Olive over entire stem and leaves; the acorn with Toffee Crunch, Peanut Brittle, Desert Sand and Rich Cocoa inks and the maple leaf with a combination of Cantaloupe, Potter's Clay, Rhubarb Stalk and Peanut Brittle Inks. Adhere all to card front as shown using pop dots and Dries Clear Adhesive as needed. Add Crystal Glitter to the fence, the maple leaf and the acorn; add Lichen Glitter to the leaves and stems on the die cut sunflowers and the sunflowers on the design paper and Mellow Yellow Glitter to all of the sunflower petals. Finally with Dries Clear Adhesive add Brown Gala Glitz to the center of each sunflower. Finish by adhering Sage Green Pearl to the upper left corner of the card front.
