Hi Friend,

Watch this tutorial https://youtu.be/KOy_qNB9OAk to learn how to shape the Classic Petunia.

Instructions: Click here to see a close up view of this topiary.  Create the urn from Thank You For The Music SVG file here. I used paper from the Classic Petunia paper Collection. Place a few glass decorative stones in the bottom to weight the urn. Trim the floral foam to create a snug fit inside the urn. Stuff left over foam around the edges to prevent the stones from falling out. Spray paint or cover the round styrofoam ball with flower soft. I had Flower Soft so I applied Dries Clear Adhesive to ball and then the flower soft. (Tip: You can also create your own by rubbing two pieces of styrofoam together, applying some re-inkers and allow to dry).  Apply floral tape the full length of the dowel. Apply one end of the dowel half way inside the styrofoam ball and the other into the base floral foam. 

Stamp the small and large Classic Petunia flowers on white cardstock using white embossing powder. Heat set. The petals were watercolored using Tattered Rose and worn Lipstick Distress Ink.   The leaves were watercolored using Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress oxide Ink. The petals were lightly misted on the back for easy molding and shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. 

The flowers were layered and adhered with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive. 

Sprigs of Baby Breath were applied using a hot glue gun. Small floral bows were placed in locations around the ball. The flowers were applied to the topiary using pearl hat pins. 

Floral moss was applied around the top of the urn. For the finishing touch, tie a bow around the stem at the base of the floral topiary.

Instructions: Inspiration for this project came from My Sisters Scrapper and a step by step video of this card clutch can be located here. Take one sheet of 12 x 12 inch decorative paper and decide which side you want inside and outside for your clutch purse. With the right side of the 12 inch decorative paper down, bring the corners together and fold the paper in half diagonally to form a triangle. From the fold, turn up approximately 1 inch and press the fold along the bottom. Flip the triangle over and turn the 1 inch fold to the other side. Press along the previous fold line to reinforce it. Open up the paper to the inside of the clutch purse. It is easier to continue if your turn the paper so the fold lines are in the vertical position. Bring both corners with folds up to the center of the paper. Fold in a mountain valley style. The center fold will be a mountain fold.. Close the clutch purse and fold back the corner. Add a magnet closure to the inside of the clutch purse. Stamp one small, one medium and one large size petunia with Stampin Up early espresso ink. Stamp two leaves with Stampin Up garden green ink. Use Stampin Up Melon Mambo ink and a stack and store dauber to color the three flowers. Shape the petunias according to the tutorial on how to shape the petunias. Place Hot Mama prills in the center of each flower with designer dry clear glue. Add a spritz of glue to flower tips and sprinkle shell white glitter on the tips of each flower. Attach completed flowers to the outside of the clutch purse. Place pearl embellishment in the middle to simulate the closure.

( all the design paper layers are done this way ) Taking the purple card stock again cut 7.68" x 5.31" (19.5 cm x  13.5 cm) Find the contrasting design paper for the front, cut this a little smaller then adhere all to the card base. Adhere the lace and ribbon across the card front. Prepare the embellishments by stamping, die cutting and colouring. ( 3 flower sets, three leaf sets, four corners and one boarder ).

For more tips on creating with the Backyard Blossoms collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/swO34-n1HNc.

Instructions: Card size is 5 x 6 5/8". Using the Garden's Edge Coneflower stamp set, stamp the row of Coneflowers on white cardstock using your White Versacolor Ink, then cover completely in white embossing powder, shake of the excess and heat with your heat gun. I use an antistatic pad to wipe my vellum and cardstock before stamping, it creates a static free environment. I have colored these images using Gelatos. Gelatos are a water-soluble crayon which is great for blending and shading over heat embossed images. Firstly, just scribble the desired colors over the image, green for the stems, Butter Cream for the flower petals and Mango for the flower centers and now you are just going to rub it in with your fingers until blended and smooth, for the highlight add Mango to the bottom of the flower petal and now rub in with your fingers to blend. When you are happy with your shading use a cloth to rub off the excess color and it will leave the white embossed stamp more visible. If you use a damp cloth your color will be less vibrant, just experiment with your coloring technique. Highlight the flowers centers using the Pearlescent Chocolate ink very lightly.

Using the Butterfly Dreams Border Stamp set stamp on vellum using your White Versacolor Ink, then cover completely in white embossing powder, shake of the excess and heat with your heat gun. Using your Blossoming Coneflower and Backyard Blossoms Stamp sets, stamp your flowers using Archival Black Ink, I have only stamped the top of the flowers as we will only be using this section. Color the flowers using your Wilted Violet ink using your Stack and Store daubers. Trim of the flower centers you will only be using the petals. Spray the petals with your mini mister and shape using your Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Kit.

Cut your card base using the white cardstock 10" x 6 5/8". Fold your card in half, I like to run a bone folder over the spine of the card to give it a clean finish. Using the selected Patterned cardstock from the Backyard Blossoms Paper Pad, cut your front mat 6 1/2" x 4 7/8", die cut the Fleur Border Basics Die down the right-hand side. Using the coordinating decorative border die select the purple contrasting cardstock from the paper pad and die cut 1 matching border. Using the Fleur Border Basics die, die cut the right hand front side to match your patterned cardstock. I have adhered the decorative border to the back of the front mat and then adhered it to the card front (this conceals the border between the layers for a neater effect on the inside of your card). Trim the selected cardstock from the Backyard Blossoms Paper Collection 6 1/2" x 4 7/8" for the inside mat. Adhere the insert mat.

I have trimmed the Butterfly border into single butterflies, trim them as pictured or play around with where the flourish sections sit. Adhere the butterflies with adhesive only down the center of the butterflies so the wings can be folded up. Adhere your petals over the flowers. Trim down the row of Coneflowers into single flowers and adhere as desired or as pictured. Highlight the purple flowers using the Nuvo Aqua Flow Glitter pen. Highlight the flower centers and the Butterflies using the stickles.

Enjoy seeing the creativity that Heartfelt Creations products brings out in everyone. Wondering why Pigment Ink isn't used on any of these projects. Flower suggest - Holyhocks Retiring soon, looking forward to see what my creativity will be. Keep IWIA coming, I'm adding to my collection.
