A Bird with Blooms! Its a Great "New Release" Day!

Turn to the Right!
 Hi Friends! 

2015 is off to an amazing start at Heartfelt Creations! All their upcoming new releases that I've been privileged to play with are wonderful!  I'm so excited about this company!

Today we introduce "Birds and Blooms"!  Here's a description of the new collection from the Home Office:

"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've had so much fun with this collection -- lots to show you -- but I must pace myself!

First up is this little unpainted wooden bird that I altered.  I believe I purchased him from Hobby Lobby.  I dressed him up with festive party blooms and a hat that I made from the "Birds and Blooms Paper Collection." 

Prepared the little blooms and branches for the bird

Added pieces and strips of paper using Mod Podge

Covered all sides

Glued on flowers and branches
Made a party hat with flowing fibers!
Turn to the Left!
And he's ready for his close up!
Then next is a card!

This one is also created using just the materials from the awesome Birds and Blooms collection!  I leaned towards an Asian theme with this because of the blossoms and branches and of course it gives me another opportunity to make some fans!

I hope you enjoy!

All the step by step details to make these projects are on the HC blog!   The HC Blog is overflowing with more amazing cards and projects showcasing this new release!  Run on over to check it out!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
