Welcome back and today I am excited to share my projects in two blog posts for the debut of the stunning Cottage Garden collection from Heartfelt Creations. The papers are just beautiful and of course the hydrangea flowers are a must have for your craft collection.
My first blog post features a card made using my favourite decorative die – the Regal Frame die. It frames the hydrangea flowers perfectly.

Cut a piece of white cardstock 10” x 7”, score at 5” along the long side and fold to create a base card 5” x 7”. Cut a piece of gold cardstock 5” x 7” and adhere to the front of the card. Cut a piece of patterned paper 4 15/16” x 6 15/16” and adhere to the top of the card. Die cut four corners out of gold cardstock using the corner dies from the HCD1-7263 Swirly Accent Spray Die set and adhere to the four corners. Die cut the outer frame from the HCD1-7248 Regal Frame & Accents Die set out of gold cardstock and adhere to the front of the card with foam tape. Die cut the patterned paper out of the outer plain edge die from the HCD1-7248 Regal Frame & Accents Die set and adhere to the front of the regal frame. Die cut the lattice frame out of gold cardstock using the outer and inner plain edge dies with the lattice die and adhere over the patterned paper. Die cut the outer frame using the outer frame and the outer plain edge die and adhere to the frame with foam tape.
Stamp two small aster spray images from the HCPC-3888 Wild Aster Spray Stamp set in Leaf Green ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Sponge with Leaf Green ink and die cut with the coordinating die. Add Minnie Pearl Prills to the image and add Crystal Clear glitter to the flowers with Dries Clear glue and adhere to the middle of the frame.
Stamp the small and large hydrangea images from the the HCPC-3901 Fresh Cut Hydrangea Stamp set in Forget-Me-Knot ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Colour with Vivid Chartreuse and Forget-Me-Knot inks and die cut with the coordinating dies. Sponge the leaf edges with Forget-Me-Knot ink and shape lightly and add Crystal Clear glitter to the images using Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge. Adhere to the middle of the frame over the aster spray with foam tape.
Trim the sentiment from the paper collection, sponge the edge with Forget-Me-Knot ink and adhere to the base of the flowers.
Please watch out for my second post for some more hydrangeas.
