Two superb projects - Black Friday Release of Heartfelt Creations!!

Dear All,
I am presenting two beautiful projects for this Black Friday Release - Garden Romantique Product Release Notes Heartfelt Creations November 2014
Love is in full bloom with the Romantique Garden collection from Heartfelt Creations.
A romantic symphony composed in subtle shades of pink, fuchsia, green, cream and
charcoal harmonizes beautifully with picturesque images of dainty hummingbirds, devoted love birds, graceful swans and delicate bleeding heart bushes. Ornate ironwork backgrounds are in perfect harmony with layered elements of vintage sheet music, lace, flowing handwriting, scroll-work, floral, stripes and flourishes. Six hand drawn stamp sets capture the idyllic beauty of a peaceful garden where swans glide across the surface of a glassy lake, nesting lovebirds are wreathed in flowers, and hummingbirds sip nectar from blossom laden branches of exquisite beauty. The coordinating die cuts feature elegant swirled stems, a graduated set of bleeding heart blossoms and a majestic pair of swimming swans. Dreamy and idyllic, uplifting and inspiring, romantic and moving as a masterfully scored concerto, this enchanting collection is a celebration of love and life amidst the extraordinary beauty of nature. Here is my project using this beautiful collection.

This is altered gift box which is available in any arts and crafts store which is DIY Kits for kids. I covered this box on top and sides with Beautiful New paper collection called Romantique Garden Paper Collection. I have distressed edges with Prima chalk edger, Shabby Vintage Pink color. and Romantique Garden Die Set. You can see a very very small (one photo ;-) tutorial here about how I made these very cute flowers and stick them on one side of the box top as a flower cluster and used my hand cut green leaves and for few flourishes I used one of the spellbinders Floral Flourishes dies. These flower stamens gives this cluster a really pretty touch. On the other side this beautiful window is a Decorative Chateau Gate Diecut and distressed with Prima Shabby Tote Chalk edger. Finished this box using some decorative corners using one of the spellbinders Asian Accents die cuts. I have created these 3D flowers using very very pretty stamp set and dies called Heartthrob PreCut Set.

Here you go...

Description :
This is new release collection Called Romantique Garden. And you will be so happy to see the beauty of these papers, Stamps and Dies. Have you ever seen dies and stamps of Bleeding Heart Flowers? Then here you go..
I have a small tutorial for you. There are so many different ways to make these flowers but I tried to create these 3D looking. Hope you will like them. So pretty and super easy to make. Also you can see some closeup pictures of how I created layers using just one 12X12 paper from the collection.
For this layout, I simply got one of the paper from the collection which has wide window since I wanted to create a scene. This particular paper has couple of decorative windows on one corner and I just fussy cut those windows little bit and used foam dots under to raise that little bit so they looks like a layers.
On white card stock, stamped this beautiful image with the girl called Romantique Garden PreCut Set and colored with my copic markers and fussy cute the whole image. Also cut those lovely swan using stamp called Romantique Swans PreCut Set and co-coordinating die.
On another white card stock I stamped the water effect stamp called Romantique Swans PreCut Set and created sky effect using hand cut cloud template and dab the blue color around. 
Then adhere this landscape on the main layout and also adhere the fussy cute image of the little girl using some foam dots so looks like there is a water/lake behind this wall and she is looking at those beautiful romantic swans.

I hope you find this layout Elegant yet Romantic!
Thanks so much for your time to visit my blog!! 
Wishing you all a Very Happy Thanksgiving!!!
~ Archana
