A Cascade of Petunias

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Today is Inspiration Wednesday and I would like to share with you a creation that I have been thinking about for some time but couldn’t figure out how to make it work.  I decided to go ahead with it and see how it went and I was able to finish it with the help of my work colleague Beth Perry.  She gave me the idea of using an ice block stick to make the cup float over the saucer.  It worked perfectly!

Materials Used:

HCPC-3786 Large Classic Petunia stamp

HCD1-7140 Large Classic Petunia die

HCPC-3785 Small Classic Petunia stamp

HCD1-7139 Small Classic Petunia die

Others – Crafter’s Companion Centura Pearl White cardstock SVG from svgcuts.com, Cricut Explore, Canvas 8” x 8”, Voodoo Molly Vintage Paint – Pistachio, American Decoupage glue, iceblock stick.  Hot Glue gun.

Instructions:

Paint the canvas with the Vintage paint.  Cut a piece of patterned paper 7” x 7” and adhere to the canvas.  Cut another panel 6” x 6” and adhere to the canvas and seal with the decoupage adhesive.

Cut the cup and saucer using the SVG out of the Centura Pearl cardstock.  Cut the decorative pieces from the Classic Petunia Paper Collection and adhere to the cup and saucer.  Seal with the decoupage glue.  Adhere the saucer to the canvas with Dries Clear glue.  To create the floating cup partially break an iceblock stick in three and strengthen the breaks with the hot glue.  Adhere the top of the stick to the inside of the cup and the bottom to the saucer using the hot glue.

To make the petunias stamp the images from the HCPC-3786 Large Classic Petunia stamp and the HCPC-3785 Small Classic Petunia stamp sets in Dark Peony ink and the leaves in Bamboo Leaves ink.  Sponge the centres out of the flowers with Berrylicious and Dark Peony inks and die cut using the coordinating dies, and shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit.  Sponge the leaves with New Sprout ink and die cut using the coordinating dies.  Sponge the edges of the leaves with Bamboo Leaves and then shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit.  Assemble the flowers on the leaves using the Dries Clear glue and adhere to the display with the hot glue gun.

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Wednesday Inspiration with Heartfelt Creations

Please visit the Heartfelt Creations website for more amazing artwork from the other Design Team members here:  https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/blog/582/may-24th

Today I am featuring a card that I made as part of my submission for the Heartfelt Creations Design Team.  The Classic Petunia collection is so pretty and the colours are fabulous.  In this card I have used both the large and small Classic Petunias to show the flowers cascading over a fence (from the Celebrate the Season Collection).  I wanted to create a feeling of being in the garden and I hope that I have succeeded.
