This is the 12X12 Layout I have created using very beautiful collection called, Sweet Lullaby. It is kind of Mixed Media canvas.
I have used one of the scrapbook layout design paper and fuzzy cut the frame with background layered graphic.
On right side of the basic paper I have used couple of Lindys stamp gang sprays and gel pen to make a circle borders on those sprayed stains.
Also used the Gate Die to create a focus point in the middle where you can stick the picture or leave it as it is.
On the right side of the middle frame, I have used spellbinders die as a green decorative base for my beautiful Daisies which are handmade using Heartfelt creations Daisy stamp and a die.
For the sentiment I have used one of the word, "Precious" from the Lullaby collection. Finished with stickle on flowers and on a sentiment.

Other products : White card stock, Prima Green Chalk edger, Yellow copic Marker, Stickles, Foam Dots, White Lace

Instructions :
This tag made using 8X4 white basic card stock. Decorated with beautiful Heartfelt Creations New collection Romantique Garden Papers.
I got three cute small tags from the collection and arranged on one side as a layers but tried to show the beautiful designs from that.
Focused on one tag which has those super sweet swans.
One other side I created one branch of Bleeding Heart Flowers in green color using Heartthrob PreCut Set and Romantique Garde Die.
Also used some leaf using Classic Leaf Die and Open Leaf stamp set.
As you all noticed there is one heart image around those swans and they ae perfectly match with Timeless Amour Die so I got that diecut and used on the tag.
But I cut that in the middle and used bit whimsy style. I have used white lace to tie this tag.
Finished this tag using one sentiment ticket from the same collection says, "Best Wishes".
I hope you will find this tag interesting.

Two Heartfelt Creations DT Projects

Hello Everyone....
Here is this beautiful card I created for Heartfelt Creations as a DT.

Heartfelt Creations Products :
HCPC 3641 – Heartthrob Precut Set
HCD 755 Romantique Garden Die Set
HCDP1 249 Romantique Garden Paper Collection
McGill Paper Blossoms Tool Kit

Description :
To make the base for this card I have used white card stock and used Spellbinders Labels-4 die. Edges are distressed with Tim Holtz Destress Ink pad. Then got another layer using Spellbinders Fleur De Elegance Die.
The middle main image is the cut from one of the beautiful paper from Romantique Garden Paper collection using spellbinders circle die. I have used foam dots to create raised layers. I am totally in love with this new die called Romantique Garden Die set and those heart shaped vines are from those dies using green card stock and distressed with Tim Holtz ink. Those pretty bleeding hearts flowers created with one of the die from the same set using white cardstock and Tim Holtz ink and glittered with white stickles. Also used foam dots under each flower pates so it gives bit 3D effect. Since this is Easel card we need to decorate inside little bit. So I have used another piece of beautiful flowers from the same paper pad, it is one of the journling spots. And used the sentiment from the same collection. I have used flat back pearl trim and a decorative lace as a stopper for the easel card.

Other Products :
Spellbinders Label Twenty, Foam Dots, Brown wrapping paper, DCWV Burlap paper, Seam binding, Tim Holtz Dress Ink, White embossing powder, Gold Embossing Power and Green Embossing powder, Versa Mark, Yellow Vellum paper, Heat Gun, Glitter Glue, Prima seed beads.

Description :
I will follow as per the pictures you are seeing as a photo step-by-step tutorial.
Basically this is the DIY wrapping your gift ideas. So if you have your wrapped gift box then lets decorate it.

As you are seeing I have used all of the Classic Sunflower Collection. I have yellow vellum paper here but you can use any color you want. For this special technique, you have to have Versa Mark or any clear ink pad or glue pad to use embossing powder. So we need to stamp the Classic Sunflower Precut set on our vellum and then spread the embossing powder. 

I loved the white most but other colors looks pretty too. Then take off excess powder back to the bottle. Use your heat gun to melt the powder to emboss. Now we will need our magical die which is Classic Sunflower Die to get all our sunflowers and lady bugs and even small flowers to cut. When we get them cut we will need only sunflowers but you can use other pieces as well to decorate your project.

For this flower I didn't use any flower shaping tool but use my thumb and index figure to make the shape. As per shown in the picture we just need to fold these petals inside like in a cup shape. We need these cup shaped petals for center but keep couple of large petals as it is. Since I have used three different color embossing powders, I used green one in the bottom and then gold and white but you can so as per you want. Then for the center I have used some fiber crumbs in purple color then used glitter glue on that crumbs and before that glue dries I pour some seed beads.

For making leaves I have used same technique of embossing but it is not on vellum. I got one of the beautiful paper from the new collection called Romantique Garden which has a wonderful deep green paper. And created leaves using Open Leaf precut set and Classic leaf die.

Then using one of the paper from the Sunflower Collection I created center layers where I used one of the sentiment ticket from the same collection. I used spellbinders label twenty die.
For some more gorgeousness I got two die cuts using Raindrops and Roses Die. 
Then on our plain gift box, firs I used a strip of burlap then stick two of the raindrops and roses die  cuts. In the middle I have created two layers of label diecuts and then used sentiment ticket. On one side I have created the floral cluster using three large flowers and all small flowers as it is. 

I really hope you all will love this project.
Have a happy wrapping!!
