Heartfelt Creations: Introducing Classic Petunia

Introducing the Classic Petunia Collection from Heartfelt Creations.

Move on over spring, and let summer begin…the new Classic Petunia Collection by Heartfelt Creations has arrived!  No flower signifies summer more than the large trumpet shaped blossom of the gentle petunia!  Surround yourself with memories of wandering through greenhouses filled to the brim with a multitude of varieties in every colour, from solids to variegated, compact to blanketing and of course those showy hanging baskets and container gardens spilling over with these heat loving flowers! The becomingly illustrated cling stamp sets found within this collection will have you planning your very own garden themed paper crafts filled with trailing petunias, bountiful bouquets and lavish petunia filled hanging baskets.  Three sizes of coordinating stamp and petal die cuts will allow you to recreate the ever popular petunia, making it easy to cut and shape the perfect blossom in the ideal size and colour necessary for any project from handmade cards, scrapbook layouts and even altered art pieces.   A beautiful selection of premade card panels and scrapbook pages filled with illustrations of graceful petunias in hanging baskets, classic terra cotta pots and pretty garden scenes showcasing elegant petunia draped wishing wells and white washed garden benches allow for ease in creating any garden variety creations.  Filled with classic petunia pinks and deep purples along with pretty leaf like greens, the delicately patterned papers in this charming paper collection will transport you to your favourite garden plot!  So join with us as we usher in the summer season with the tender flowers of the new Classic Petunia Collection….no fertilizing, deadheading or watering required!  We promise!

The ombre patterned paper is your background. Using a paper template that I ha on-hand, I traced and hand cut the green patterned paper shaped background. Using a journal pen, I added dots around the whole green patterned paper shape. Adhere in the middle of the layout. Cut a strip of the striped patterned paper about 2” wide, I cut with the pattern itself. Using my Extreme Double Sided Tape, I adhered the lace across the layout and then added the strip of patterned paper.

Cut a strip of the pink patterned paper that is 2×11, and flag the ends. Adhere just to the right of centre down the middle of the layout. Find and cut out the small bordered journal block. The small bordered pink journal block and the mini tag. Find and cut out the 6×6 card base with the inner green border. I adhered this to the right of where my matted photo sits. Cut a piece of the dark green patterned paper that is 4×6.5, round the corners and adhere to the layout. Cut a strip of the wine patterned paper that is 0.75×8 and adhere to the middle of the layout. Add the small journal blocks and tag to the layout using 3D foam tape. I added burlap string to the top of the mini tag.

Mat your photo in white, then green cardstock and then a slightly larger layer of the wine coloured patterned paper I added white photo corners to the photo. Adhere to the layout using 3D foam squares. Cut out 1 of the Arianna Lace die in white cardstock. Cut into pieces and adhere a piece in each of the corners of the layout. I added gems to each.

Stamp and die cut 1 of the Petunia Bouquet, and the Large Petunia. Stamp and die cut 2 of the larger flower from the Small Petunia. Stamp and die cut 3 of the smallest Small Petunia. Die cut 1 of the small stamen from white cardstock. I added gradient colour to my leaves and flowers using Chameleon Pens. I then dusted the tips of the petals and leaves with slightly darker ink. Shape and assemble the flowers and shape the leaves. Add Prills to the middles of all of the smaller flowers. Adhere the bouquet to the left hand side of the matted photo and add the largest flower on top. Using liquid adhesive, add Prills to the stamen in the middle. Add a small flower just below and just above the large one. Tuck leaves here and there. Note: I cut apart my leaves into singles and place them myself.

Add a medium flower below the matted photo. Find and cut out the “Wonderful Day” banner. Shape and adhere to the right of the medium flower. Add the other medium flower and a smaller one below, to the right of the matted photo. I then added pearls and gems around the flower clusters.
