Heartfelt Creations - Classic Rose Card with Butterfly

Welcome!  I am so glad you stopped by!     

It is time for another project from week 3 of Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Collection!  

I hope you are enjoying this collection as much as I am.     
I have always loved roses and yellow roses are one of my favorites!   
Did you know that by the 18th century, the world was in love with roses and 
they could be found in may different colors.    
The yellow rose is often associated with  sunny, cheery and happy thoughts!    
And so with that thought -   I am wishing you a sunny and cheery day!

The Classic Rose Bouquet Cling Stamp  and Butterfly Medley Butterfly Cling Stamp was Inked with Tuxedo Black Memento Dye Ink Pad.   This is an ink that is Compatible with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers.   The images were stamped on X-Press It Blending Card Stock.  The Copic markers used were: Y11, Y21, Y26, YR21, G21, G82, YB63, W3, W4 and multilines yellow, orange and olive.    The images were then cut using the corresponding die - Classic Rose Bouquet Die and Butterfly Medley Die.  Die cut two extra sets of Classic Rose Bouquet on dark green  card stock.   This will be used to give the image dimension!   Layer 3-D Dots in-between the two green layers and then adhere the colored image on top.   For even more dimension, you can add dimensional dots or foam in-between the green die cut and the colored image.   The amount of dimension you want is up to you!  The dark green die cut will also  give the appearance of a shadow!    I gently shaped the leaves using my hands to give a gentle curve.  The back of the butterfly was lightly spritzed with a mini-mister.   The wings were gently shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.   

Tip:  Emma Lou has a wonderful video showing how easy it is to line the die on images for that perfect cut.   You can view the video here -  https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/61/the-fool-proof-way-to-line-up-your-stamps-and-dies The Fool-proof Way to Line Up Your Stamps and Die  

 A 5 1/2 x 5 1/2  inch card base was created.  The base layer of apricot card-stock was cut at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4  inches.   A  beautiful green and apricot colored paper was selected from the Classic Rose Designer Paper Collection and cut at 5 x 5 inches.   This is gorgeous by itself but I always love texture so I used some texture paste and small brick stencil to the right bottom side of the designer paper.   Rusty Hinge Distress Ink was sponged over the top.   

The flowers and butterfly were adhered to the card.  For embellishment, Wink of Stella and Diamond and Stardust Stickles were applied to the flowers and butterfly. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!    I hope you are able to hop around to the blogs of my team mates and to check out the fabulous video Emma Lou has created!   
Be safe.  Have fun and be creative!
See you soon!
