Heartfelt Creations Springtime Medley Collection Release

Heartfelt Creations is releasing stunning, fresh floral images just in time for Spring paper crafting.  Here's a list of the new sets in the Springtime Medley Collection linked to their images on the Heartfelt Creations website;


I sit here now watching snow swirl hypnotically just beyond my studio window.  I know if I go out there and inhale deeply of the crisp air, my nose will firmly freeze shut.  Yup, January in brutally cold Western Canada.  These new stamps take me to a lovelier place in my mind.  A warmer place.  A place of happiness and joy walking around watching my gardens return to life after so many dormant months.


I used Exotic Fuchsias from this release for my card.  I did an image search so I could get the colours right and I found a DIVINE picture of purple fuchsias hanging in profusion in a gorgeous hanging basket.


I coloured these beautiful fuchsias with the following copic markers;


Fuchsia; V01, V04, V05, V09, V91, V93, YG0000, YG93, YG63, colorless blender
Leaves; YG11, YG63, YG67, YG99




I would like to draw your attention to the layers on this card.  It tickles my happy place.  I did a card last week called Hand Delivery Only and it took me wonderful zen-like hours to cut the pieces of the Autumn Corsage image.  This week, it took a fraction of the time because the Fuchsia blossom and bud were cut using co-ordinating dies from the Springtime Medley dies set.  Love these things when I don't need any zen time!!!

You will see more projects using these newly released sets on the Heartfelt Creations blog made by the rest of the Heartfelt Creations Design Team.

So detailed and strikingly beautiful! The layered fuschias (I didn't know those were flowers - always heard them referred to as a colour) are so lovely! Awesome coloring work, Loretta!
