Sun Kissed Fleur in Pink

Today's card has been made using the Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fleur range of stamps and die. It is one of the prettiest sets I have seen for a while and I have made a few different cards.

There are six packs of stamps and one die in this range, all of which are beautiful. 

For this card I have used the Sun Kissed Fleur Background stamp, the Sun Kissed Fleur Tags & Basket stamp set and the Sun Kissed Fleur Pre Cut Set. i have also used the Sun Kissed Fleur die. This is one large die, which cuts out ten flowers and two sets of leaves, in various sizes. The die has also been made to line up exactly with some of the stamp sets in the range, so you can stamp a whole set of flowers with one stamp and then die cut them using one die. 


The base of the card was cut using the Spellbinders Grand Labels Twenty Three die set and blush coloured card. I then inked through the die using a Milled Lavender Distress Ink pad.

The second layer was a piece of coconut white card which I stamped using the Sun Kissed Fleur Background stamp. I coloured the background flowers using a Milled Lavender Distress Marker and a water brush. I then coloured the leaves using a Crushed Olive Distress Marker and a water brush. This piece of card was then die cut using a large rectangle die and I inked through the die using a Milled Lavender Distress Ink pad. I then wrapped a piece of white crochet lace around the background, as shown.

The top layer was made using a piece of coconut white card and the Sun Kissed Fleur Tags & Basket stamp set. I stamped using clear Perfect Medium and then heat embossed using the Cosmic Shimmer Detail Gold embossing powder. This was then die cut using the Spellbinders Labels Ten die set and a slightly larger mat was also cut from this set using blush coloured card. I inked through both dies with the Milled Lavender Distress Ink pad.

The sentiment comes from the Creative Expressions Garden Sayings stamp set and was stamped using an Aged Mahogany Distress Ink pad. 


The extra flower embellishments were made by stamping the Sun Kissed Fleur Pre Cut stamp set and cutting it out with the matching Sun Kissed Fleur die. The flowers were coloured using Milled Lavender and Aged Mahogany Distress Markers and then layered up, as shown. A faux pearl was put in the centres using the Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Plum Pearl PVA. 



Quite a long post today as I used a lot of products.

Happy crafting!
