Good Afternoon Friends! Hope you all had an enjoyable weekend!
A slightly different style of card today, still using papers and the dragonfly stamp from the Winking Frog Collection By Heartfelt Creations. Really like the way the colour has run!

Add a little of all the distress inks onto a glass mat with some water.  One at a time, add a puddle of colour to the dragonfly edge and allow to drip away (or blow away gently).  Complete all the way around and allow to dry.  Cut down the card into a square measuring  4 3/8" x 4 3/8".  Add green ink around the outside edge and heat emboss with clear embossing powder, adhere to the card front using double sided tape.  Adhere the die cut dragonfly over the stamped image as shown using foam pads to complete.

Heartfelt Creations - Orange Lily Gift Box

Good Morning!
Something a little different today, it's a small gift box made using the Spellbinders Square Bracket Edge Box.  I then stamped my own wrapping paper using the Happy Birthday sentiment stamp, wrapped up the box and created an orange lily to decorate the top.  Full instructions are below.



Instructions:
Create a box using white linen card with the Spellbinder Square Bracket Edge Box dies. Stamp the Birthday Sentiment using green ink diagonally on white paper.  Wrap up the box with the stamped paper. Stamp the Sunrise Lily petals onto white card using the Morocco ink and the leaves using the Bamboo ink.  Die cut the flowers and leaves using the matching die.  Add the rouge ink to the lily centre and blend the outside petals with the Morocco Ink. Add dimension to the petals using the stylus and adhere all the petals to create one flower. Add colour to the leaves using the Bamboo Ink and adhere to the flower. Die cut two stamens from orange card.  Add glue to the tips and dip into the glitter. Allow to dry, then add to the centre. Wrap some ribbon around the box centre and adhere underneath.  Adhere the flower to the top to complete.
