Heartfelt Creations - Botanic Orchid Collection

June 8


Hello and welcome!    

I am so excited to showcase Botanic Orchid Collection from Heartfelt Creations!   

Showy, elegant and graceful, the divine orchid flower is one that is most certainly recognizable for its unique shape and known for taking center stage all on its own!  Heartfelt Creations presents to you their newest collection…The Botanic Orchid.  Overflowing with stunning floral images enveloped in soothing moss like greens, soft sky blues, creamy whites and flowery pinks, alongside rich burgundies and vibrant teals this collection is sure to appeal to any flower enthusiast.  Intricate illustrations and die cuts of orchid blossoms and bouquets, accompanied by delightful hummingbirds and scripted sentiments will have you creating your very own botanical experience with hand shaped orchid flowers bringing a realistic touch to all of your paper creations!  Preprinted sentiments along with those in the stamp collection are ideal for covering a wide range of occasions including weddings, friendship, sickness, encouragement and sympathies.  As one of the oldest flower species in the world, this unusual blossom native to rainforests and jungles has also taken on beautiful meanings relating to each specific orchid color including innocence, grace, joy, respect, admiration, health, happiness and passion, making this the perfect flower to convey a silent but special message for friends and loved ones on any paper creation! 


In addition to the gorgeous orchids - Heartfelt Creations new release has hummingbirds galore!   
I love birds and hummingbirds are one of my favorites.   I have three hummingbird feeders in my back yard and never tire of watching these magnificent little guys.

Instructions

The card base was cut at 51/2 x 11 inches.  The card-stock was scored at 51/2 inches.  The base layer was cut at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches.   The Botanic Orchid Paper Collection was cut at 5 x 5 inches.  

The hummingbird was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic alcohol ink markers.   Copics used:  YG11, YG13, YG25, YG63, YG67, V01, V12, V05, V20, B21, B23, B26, B00.  I lightly shaped the hummingbird and leaves with the Flower Shaping Kit. The underside was lightly spritzed with water and the hummingbirds head, body and leaves were lightly shaped.   This is optional but I wanted some added  dimension.   

The hummingbird and decorative window were die cut and adhered to the designer paper. 
The sentiment was cut from the mat and sentiment section of the Botanic Orchid Paper Collection.   The card was  embellished with Stickles.

Hope you enjoyed my take on the new June Release from Heartfelt Creations!   Links to the other fabulous Heartfelt Creations designers are on the left sidebar.   Hop over for a visit.   There is some gorgeous eye candy!
