Create a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card base with heavy white cardstock.  Cut base layer at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches from Tangelo cardstock.  Select the apricot colored paper from the Classic Wedding Paper Collection and cut at 5 x 5 inches.  The paper was covered with a light coat of Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  I used my finger to rub it on the paper.  I sprinkled Frosting Powder and heat set.  Apply some Dries Clear glue to the grey/white leaves and lightly sprinkle with Crystal Clear Glitter.    The edges were sponged with Coral Distress Ink  and distressed.  Adhere the layers with double sided tape.  

 Stamp the Classic Wedding Roses onto X-Press It using Desert Sand in order to give the flowers a "no line" appearance.   Color the image with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers with the following combo - (Flowers - YR0000, YR000, RY21, Leaves- YG99, YG95, HG91, YG67, YG65, YG61, C0, C1).  Apply white colored pencil on the edges of the flower image to lighten the highlights.  Die cut with the Classic Wedding Roses Die.   Cut 3-4 additional images from Tangelo cardstock. Emboss the sentiment from Classic Wedding Wishes on the center of one shadow layer using white embossing powder and heat set.  Layer the shadow layers with foam mounting tape in-between each and place the colored image on top.   

Stamp Classic Rose Stamp petals using white embossing powder and heat set.   Lightly sponge the  petals with Coral Distress Ink.  Shape the flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  Apply a light coat of Ranger Crackle Paste and sprinkle Frosting Powder and heat set.  

Stamp the leaves from the Classic Rose Stamp set on green cardstock with Memento Olive Green Ink.  Sponge with Olive Green ink on the edges  and apply  a small amount of Berrylicious Chalk Ink on a few leaves.  Die cut with the corresponding die.   Shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and allow to dry.   

Adhere some Gold Gala Glitz to the area that will be near the dimensional flowers using Dries Clear Adhesive - (See reference photo).   Adhere the leaves, flowers and Classic Wedding Rose heart using a glue gun.   Emma Lou has a wonderful video for creating Classic Roses HERE.

Heartfelt Creations - Cupcake Centerpiece for Wedding Guest Table










I love this time of year and always wait to see what the wonderful wedding releases look like.    
I wasn't disappointed when Heartfelt Creations released this wonderful Classic Wedding Collection!
I love how the stamps and die on this set can be used for so many different occasions.    I think this will be perfect for a few anniversaries I have on my calendar!

I love having a centerpiece on each guest table.    I love having something for each to take home.   Many people want to simplify the process of sending cake home with the guests.   I decided to create little pie slice boxes that have an insert that hold's a cupcake.   The cupcakes can be made from the same batter as the wedding cake and what a great thing to be able to let the guests slip a pie box out at the end of the evening.   I love to take a little sweet treat home after a wedding celebration!   This is the perfect treat!

Mr. & Mrs. SVG file from svgcuts.com, Pie Slice/Cupcake Box sag file from the Silhouette Studio, silver cardstock, paper trimmer, rhinestones, pearls, Copic Alcohol Ink Markers ( (bells- C0, C1, C3, C4), favor ties, styrofoam, glue gun, tulle ribbon, wire, heat tool, silver embossing powder, satin silver edged ribbon, crackle paint, Versamark.









Assemble the cake pedestal as directed from the SVG file Mr. & Mrs (svgcuts.com).      The pie slice/cupcake boxes were cut  from the Silhouette Studio but I know Cricut has a great pie slice box as well.   Cut eight cake boxes for the first layer. You can cover styrofoam with the wedding designer paper  for the second layer.  You can add additional layers of the pie slice /cupcake boxes  if you have more than eight people at the guest table.     

The roses were created with the Classic Rose Collection.   They were stamped on white cardstock with Versamark Ink and silver embossing powder.  Heat Set.   The flowers were sponged with Sweet Plum Memento Ink and shaped with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool.  The flowers were assembled and allowed to dry.   A light coat of Crackle Paint was applied and dusted with frosting powder.  The flowers ere heat set.   Emma Lou has a wonderful tutorial on creating roses here - https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/129/how-to-create-dimensional-roses

The Classic Wedding Bell set was stamped on X-Press It Blending Cardstock with Versamark Ink and silver embossing powder.   They were colored with Copic Alcohol Markers - C0, C1, C3, C4.  They were die cut with the coordinating die.   I die cut 4 additional  bells from grey paper and layered with dimensional mounting tape in-between each layer.  Designer Dries Clear Adhesive was applied lightly to the bells and were sprinkled with Crystal Clear glitter.    

The cake was assembled and embellished with the flowers, rhinestones, pearls, tulle, favor ties and satin silver edged ribbon.   

The cake is placed on the wedding guest table.  The pie slice/cupcake boxes contain cupcakes that were made from the wedding cake batter.   Each guest at the table can take one cake slice home at the end of the evening.   If you have more than eight guests per table, you can increase the number of  layers for your centerpiece.   You can create one cake creation for each guest table.  I will be creating this project for some friends that will be getting married next month and will be using the color theme they are using for their wedding.     




Thank you so much for stopping by and I would love to see your take on this project!

Although I am on vacation in the Cook Islands, I wanted to make sure I shared my card using the wonderful Classic Petunia Collection!    I know I used the Petunia Bouquet before but I just had to use it again and have some fun with the Elegant Borders Die.  I think they coordinate so well together!    I also want to share the exciting news that one of our design team members started her own brand of frosting powder and crystal glitter.   She arranged to have some sent to us and I must say - I am in heaven!   I love the stuff.   I think I will be adding frosting to everything!  LOL

Heartfelt Creations - Petunia Floral Topiary





Spring is bursting out all over around me!   I live in Valley Springs, California and flowers are in full bloom!    When I saw the topiary SVG file, I just knew this would work perfect for Heartfelt Creations new Classic Petunia Collection.    This would make a perfect centerpiece for any special occasion.   Can you imagine a wedding reception with a topiary on each table?    I love weddings!   






Classic Petunia Paper Collection, HCDP1-278

Classic Petunia Die Set - Small, HCD1-71
Classic Petunia Cling Stamp Set - Large, HCPC-3786

Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, 159723
Embossing Powder- White, RPE1685
Vagabond-2, 532423
Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, HCST1-401


65 lb.  white cardstock, heat tool, paper trimmer, pearl designer hat pins, baby breath, green ribbon, floral moss, 5 inch styrofoam ball, 3.4 x 2.5 x 3.5 inch floral foam, hot glue gun, 12 inch wood dowel, floral tape, rocks to add weight to urn, pearls, watercolor brush,  Tattered  Rose and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink,  Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Oxide Ink, Mini-mister, SVG file Thank You For The Music,  flower soft or green spray acrylic paint. 


Create the urn from  Thank You For The Music SVG file.  I used paper from the Classic Petunia paper Collection.  Place a few glass decorative stones in the bottom to weight the urn.  Trim the floral foam to create a snug fit inside the urn.  Stuff left over foam around the edges to prevent the stones from falling out.  

Spray paint or cover the round styrofoam ball with flower soft.   I had Flower Soft so I applied Dries Clear Adhesive to ball and then the flower soft.   (Tip:  You can also create your own by rubbing two pieces of styrofoam together, applying some re-inkers and allow to dry).   Apply  floral tape  the full length of the dowel.  Apply one end of the dowel  half way inside the styrofoam ball and the other into the base floral foam.   

Stamp the small and large Classic Petunia flowers on white cardstock using white embossing powder.  Heat set.  The petals were watercolored using Tattered Rose and worn Lipstick Distress Ink.   The leaves were watercolored using Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress oxide Ink.   The petals were lightly misted on the back for easy molding and shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  
The flowers were layered and adhered with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.   

Sprigs of Baby Breath were applied using a hot glue gun.   Small floral bows were placed in locations around the ball.  The flowers were applied to the topiary using  pearl hat pins. 

 Floral moss  was applied around the top of the urn.    For the finishing touch, tie a bow around the stem at the base of the floral topiary.   

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.   I love the floral topiary and can imagine so many different occasions when this could be the perfect centerpiece!    I hope you check out the new Classical Petunia Collection soon!
