Follow your Heart with Creative Embellishments and Heartfelt Creations

Hey guys, I'm popping in today to share a project I created with some Creative Embellishment chip boards and Heartfelt Creations. You see, over on the Creative Embellishments blog we are doing a cross promotion with Heartfelt Creations. If you haven't checked out the products from either place you are missing out. Creative Embellishments has amazing, high quality laser-cut chipboard. Heartfelt Creations has amazing stamps with matching dies and paper collections.

Here is my project using these amazing products:

I created a layout using some of the gorgeous paper from Heartfelt Creations. This collections is called vintage-floret and has 24 double-sided papers. The colors in the pack are great for vintage, shabby chic or rustic layouts. I chose a vintage layout, using an older photo of my mother.

Heartfelt Creations has great stamps to use to make your own flowers, however I chose to use my floral stamp in a different way. I used the sun-kissed-fleur-swirls as a background stamp 2 different ways.

First I used it behind my floral cluster by stamping with some embossing ink and using a fine embossing powder and heat setting it. Then I used it with some brown ink along the edges of my paper to add a bit more depth to the paper. I only inked the swirl and leaf parts and stamped randomly. 

Of course no project is complete without some chipboard. This layout didn't require a lot of chip board. I think the swirly-border gave it exactly what was needed. I left it raw, as in that state it fit in well with the rest of the layout.


Here are some close ups:

That's all I have for today, thanks for stopping by. Don't forget there is still a monthly challenge going on over at Creative Embellishments.
