Welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!!!! I have been making so many cards that I miss making layouts, so when I saw the new gorgeous stamps from HFC, I just had to make a layout with them, and you know what? I just had too much fun creating it. My focal point flowers I made with the "Flora Grande" stamps and coordinating dies, loved them!!!! I also used these stamps to create the pretty stamped flower border on the patterned paper. Hope you enjoyed my project, thank you for stopping by and make sure to visit Heartfelt Creations' Blog for tons of amazing projects.

Stamp the "Vintage Life Background" with lovely lilac ink all over a 12" x 12" sheet of patterned paper, make sure not to ink the stamp completely so you get the distressed image. Using the small flower from "Flora Grande 1" stamp a border around the sheet of paper with lovely lilac ink. Cut a square of coordinating patterned paper and punch a border with the corner and border punches from Martha Stewart, using the same technique as before stamp the "Vintage Life Background" on this piece of paper. Cut 4 decorative corners from the "Decorative Butterfly-Border" die set, adhere to a strip of the same patterned paper as pictured. Using the MS border punch "Scallop Dot", punch a strip of cardstock on both sides, ink edges with milled lavender distress ink, and thread some ribbon thru the center holes. Diecut 2 swirls from the "Decorative Dutch Iris" die set from glitter paper and cut apart at the center. Stamp the following flowers on dark purple cardstock with VersaMark ink and heat emboss; 1 medium, 2 small from "Flora Grande 2" set, 2 small from "Flora Grande 1" set, stamp 3 small flowers from "Flora Grande 1" set on a coordinating shade of purple. Stamp 4 medium and 6 small leaves on green cardstock. Stamp 7 medium flowers from "Posy Patch Flowers" set on purple vellum, stamp 7 small flowers from same set on light purple cardstock. Stamp 4 leaves from "Dutch Iris Medley" set on green cardstock. Cut all the flowers and leaves with their coordinating die, slightly shade leaves with forest moss distress ink. Shape all flowers and leaves with an embossing tool or bone folder. Stamp butterfly from "Posy Patch Garden Delights" set on purple vellum with VersaMark ink and heat emboss. Diecut with coordinating die, diecut and additional butterfly from vellum. Stamp sentiment on cream cardstock, cut and emboss with "Labels Seventeen" die, before removing die, stamp a couple of flowers and ink edges, mat with purple cardstock. Adhere everything as pictured, the photo was matted with purple cardstock and adhered with pop dots. Add some 3D paint and adhesive pearls to the flowers, for the body of the butterfly I used some beads to give it more dimension.
