Rejuvenate your creativity with the saturated colors and resplendent artwork of the Blazing Poppies Collection of stamps, dies and designer papers from Heartfelt Creations. Escape to verdant fields where dancing poppies sway like ballerinas wearing dramatic hues of blush, coral, peach, scarlet and ebony. Let this glorious canvas of flowing script, heirloom lace, ornate flourishes, flower laden arbors, bold stripes and soft neutral backgrounds enliven your senses and awaken your inner Van Gogh. The Blazing Poppy stamp and die allows you to fashion bold, life-like poppies in every size and color. You'll design museum worthy backgrounds, card focals, layouts and home décor with the sumptuous stamps and paper collection. Create your own masterpiece, and spark your imagination with the amazing artistry and uncommon brilliance of Blazing Poppies.
This week I have a gate fold card for you using two of the new sets from the collection.
The main image is from the Blazing Poppy Vase Set that I colored with pencils and mineral spirits.
I covered the two front flaps with green designer paper that were stamped with the poppy corner and branch filler from the Blazing Poppy Fillers Set and colored with pencils. The sympathy sentiment is from an older stamp set, the Birds and Blooms Set.
Here's a little close up of the main image.
Here's a look inside the card using one of the beautiful designer papers from the collection that I trimmed down to fit the center section.
Make sure to visit the HC Blog to see the beautiful projects by the designers this week! Also, check out Emma Lou's new video show you flower making techniques using this new collection.
