Heartfelt Creations - He Lives!

Hello and Welcome!   

Today is Inspiration Wednesday for Heartfelt Creations!  
The stamps, die and gorgeous designer paper  for this week are from the  Flowering Dogwood Collection.  I couldn't resist using the homemade paper a friend sent me from Laos again this week.....    but don't hesitate to try using any of your vellum or various specialty paper!     I wanted to use the image with the three crosses for this weeks Easter Card.

Heavy weight beige card stock,  dark brown card stock, X-Press It card stock, double sided tape, paper trimmer, mini mister, Vintage Photo Distress Ink,   Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval die and Copic Alcohol Ink markers.   

Cut some heavy beige card stock at 11 x 5 1/2 inches and score at 5 1/2 inches to create a top-fold card base.   Dark brown card stock was cut at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches.   Select the designer paper from the Flowering Dogwood Collection and cut at 5 x 5 inches.  The edges of the paper were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.    The layers were adhered using double sided tape.

The flowers were stamped with Memento Espresso Truffle ink on hand made paper from Laos but you can use vellum for any specialty paper.  The petals were sponged with the Espresso Truffle ink.    The leaves were stamped  and sponged with Memento Olive Grove Ink on white paper.  They were die cut with the coordinating die set.   The flowers and leaves were lightly misted with water and shaped using the  Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.   Emma Lou has a wonderful tutorial on shaping dogwood flowers >   https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/146/how-to-create-flowering-dogwoods-and-stamens

The three crosses were stamped from the Dogwood Chapel Cling Stamp Set and colored with Copic alcohol ink markers.  The color combo was E40, E41, E43, E45, E47, G40, YG61, Yg63, B000, B21, B41.  Opaque white ink was added to areas of the ground and sky.   The image was die cut using Spellbinders oval die.   The mat was cut using a Spellbinders scalloped die and adhered under the focal image.   

The sentiment was from the Dogwood Chapel Stamp Set and stamped directly onto the bottom of the focal image.   

Go Man Go Prills were added to the center of the flowers.   Teal Gala Glitz was applied with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive  directly to the designer paper on the left in order to peak out beneath and around the flowers.  The flowers were adhered on top of the Gala glitz  as shown.   The focal image was popped up using dimensional dots.     

Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
