Flowers and the Heartfelt Creations Design Team Alumni Blog Hop

Hello Again!
It is the end of the month already and time for another Alumni Blog Hop with Heartfelt Creations.  You have until Friday, January 31 at MN(EST) to complete the hop.  Comment on each of the bloggers posts and you will have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Heartfelt Creations.  The more blogs you visit and leave a comment on, the greater your chances of winning!



I have been enjoying creating collage style cards lately; these asters seemed the perfect flower to use for this elegant corner collage.  I started by inking up the Large Elegant Word Background stamp with Crumb Cake ink, stamped off once and then stamped the image in an offset fashion on my white cs.  Next, I embossed the left lower corner of the white cs- right over the stamped word background-using Spellbinders Exquisite Circles Dies.  I finished the background by stamping a lace image from the All Seasons Gazebo Stamp Set in Always Artichoke along the left side. 
The flowers were die cut in Pink Pirouette; the two smaller ones were sponged with Blushing Bride ink; they were then assembled, shaped and sponged with silver 3D Stamp Paint.  Leaves were cut with the Spellbinder Foliage die and the leaf die from the Aster dies. The leaves were sponged with silver 3D paint. 
The collage was assembled, with the lightest flower being popped up on a dimensional. Pearls were added for the flower centers.  A pearl flourish and bling were added.

Here is your list of Alum participants; time to head on over to their blogs and check out all of the gorgeous inspiration!~
