★ Romantique Garden--Heartfelt Creations

Nov 27, 2014

Its Black Friday! and today Heartfelt Creations has a brand new release for you! This one is called Romantique Garden!
Love is in full bloom with the Romantique Garden collection from Heartfelt Creations. A romantic symphony composed in subtle shades of pink, fuchsia, green, cream and charcoal harmonizes beautifully with picturesque images of dainty hummingbirds, devoted love birds, graceful swans and delicate bleeding heart bushes. Ornate ironwork backgrounds are in perfect harmony with layered elements of vintage sheet music, lace, flowing handwriting, scrollwork, florals, stripes and flourishes.
Six hand drawn stamp sets capture the idyllic beauty of a peaceful garden where swans glide across the surface of a glassy lake, nesting lovebirds are wreathed in flowers, and hummingbirds sip nectar from blossom laden branches of exquisite beauty. The coordinating die cuts feature elegant swirled stems, a graduated set of bleeding heart blossoms and a majestic pair of swimming swans. Dreamy and idyllic, uplifting and inspiring, romantic and moving as a masterfully scored concerto, this enchanting collection is a celebration of love and life amidst the extraordinary beauty of nature.
 Here is one of my projects i am sharing with you today, 
this photo is of our grand daughter.
I like to try and keep her layouts a bit simpler which is what i have done with this layout.

The bleeding hearts die and coordinating stamp made me think of hearts for this photo, i hand drew a heart on cardstock, cut 2 and stitched together on my sewing machine.

the die is truly remarkable, full of bleeding hearts attached to a vine
