Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower Collection

The Heartfelt Creations Collection being launched this month ranks in my top 5 favourite paper collections from any manufacturer of all time. And I'm not just saying that. I love the muted tones in this collection and the greyed blues make me sigh with happiness. Ask my husband. He knows slate blues and grey are my favourite colours. I don't often go for vibrant colours unless it's for a juvenile card, so this collection is right up my creative alley.

I didn't use a pre-printed panel for this card. I like colouring on the Heartfelt Creations printed paper because it is very forgiving with copic markers. I don't get the perfect blend like on x-press it blending cardstock, but for sometimes grainy imperfection is right for the project.

I really like the corner sunflower stamp that was used here. I stamped it once on the square for the card, then twice more on the extra patten paper and coloured it all. I really like the printed pattern showing through the copic colour because it coordinated the whole image and gives it more character and texture. It was a lot of fussy cutting, but the effect is worth it!

What a terrific font for this sentiment!! Yes, I continue to gush over this collection. You will also see me using some of this paper for Christmas cards as well in upcoming posts. I love it that much!!
