Birdhouse Blooms - Heartfelt Creations

Today Heartfelt Creations is releasing a pretty fabulous collection called Birds and Blooms.

Does Old Man Winter have you firmly in his grip? Chase the winter blues away with a breath of springtime! Heartfelt Creations is pleased to present the "Birds and Blooms" collection: a virtual spring garden that's lovely as a song! Shades of cherry blossom pink, robin's egg blue, and soft leafy green fill sunny garden scenes featuring bluebirds, blooming branches, picket fences, bird baths, bird houses, butterflies and frilly hydrangeas. Dozens of stunning card fronts, pre-designed layouts, borders, sentiments and artwork are the perfect remedy for mid-winter doldrums. Six hand-drawn stamp sets feature blossom laden branches, nesting birds, garden scenes and an elegant collage. Two sets of dies coordinate with papers and stamps allowing you to add realistic blossoms, branches and birds to your artwork. Take a well-deserved break from the bleak landscape of winter and escape to a colorful springtime garden where birds chirp, flowers bloom, and soft breezes lift your spirit and inspire your creativity!

I love the dies in this collection, very detailed! So with that, i have a card to share with you.

seriously, i know right! those blooms and leafs are they not the sweetest thing in a die that you ever did see? Let alone that stamp image!

Distress markers were used again for my colouring, they are my go to for all my stamped images and are my fav!

  1. Karan, this is a stunning card! I would never have thought to go "teal" with the blossoms, but they are gorgeous. The leafy branch built around the birdhouse is so inviting, I want to crawl in and take a nap! Gorgeous coloring, fabulous design, but then I expect nothing less from your talented fingers!
