Hello Blogger's

Today I'm sharing more from Heartfelt Creations beautiful stamps and dies.
To see the Design Teams beautiful projects  please check the links at the top of my page, under the DT Tab or you can check the Heartfelt Creations Blog.

The first project is also for the challenge over at Joan's Gardens this week.  Her guest designer Darlene has a great little tutorial for covering frames......go check it out and join in the fun. I was going to make mine a framed mirror but remembered this gorgeous little picture which is just perfect (I think *wink*).  I'm a less is more kinda girl.....what do you think? Please click on the photo to see it a little better.

3. Die cut and emboss two sets of leaves plus two single leaves from the foliage die set. Sponge whilst still in the die using Memento pear tart ink.
4. Arrange the pink pearlized lace with the leaves and flowers to a corner of the frame. Attach with Dries Clear adhesive.
