A Harvest of Blessings!

 Hi Friends!

Hope this Wednesday is going well for you!  I've got an easy hanging wall plaque project today featuring Heartfelt Creations Farmers Market Collection

I started with the Paper Collection and fussy cut out the large image of bright ripened vegetables.  I decided to bring the sunflowers in the image to life by stamping and die cutting out some sunflowers from the Classic Sunflower collection in a mustard yellow color.  I added some brown and red highlights to each of the petals and shaped them all with flower shaping stylus tools.

For a slightly different effect, I decided to cut away the centers of my die cut sunflowers and attach just the petals over the image's petals, leaving the brown center of the original image exposed.

For comparison of the two styles, here's another sunflower I created from a past project that uses the whole blossom. Just a different way to create the sunflower.

To finish the project, I simply attached the vegetable image to a rectangle strip that I cut from the Paper Collection that had the large "Harvest of Blessings" script on it.  I layered it with a dark brown and black cardstock panel and a heavy (110#) white cardstock layer just to make it a little more sturdy.  I then added my large eyelets and wire.  My plaque ended up being about 4" x 10" in size.

These are the Heartfelt Creations products I used for this project:
HCDP1-257  Farmers Market Designer Paper Collection
HCPC-3626 Classic Sunflower Cling Stamp Set
HCD-753 Classic Sunflower Die

As always, complete step-by-step details on how I made this project are on the HC Blog today.  Want to see more fabulousness??  Check out what the Design Team has come up with this week!  So much inspiration and creativity!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
