Under the Sea - New Release from Heartfelt

Hello Everyone!

Today brings an awesome new release from Heartfelt Creations - "Under the Sea"!  The colors in this collection are absolutely gorgeous! I loved this new set from the minute I got my hands on it!
 Take a walk along the edge of the deep blue sea, feel the warm sand between your toes and breathe in the salty air.  Balmy breezes tousle your hair and toy with the exotic hibiscus flower behind your ear as you stoop to snatch a lustrous seashell that has been swept onto the beach with the incoming tide. Cares and worries melt away because life really is better at the seaside.  The cool, crystal clear water lapping at the shoreline beckons you and you cannot resist the sudden urge to dive right in.  Before you know it you have been submerged into a magical underwater world where you find yourself settling on a jagged reef surrounded with burnished coral, glassy seashells and mystical sea creatures more beautiful than your imagination could ever conjure.  A peek behind the coral and waltzing seaweed finds you nose to nose with a school of fish gliding every so gently with their long, graceful flowing tails and glistening scales decorated with an abundance of shimmering and alluring colors.  Delicate sea horses and magnificent jelly fish dart and flit among the dancing aquatic plant life as to entertain you with a glorious underwater show being performed just for you.  Welcome to “Under the Sea”, the newest collection by Heartfelt Creations.  This water themed assembling of magnificent papers, stamps and dies will have you creating ravishing underwater scenes perfect for documenting your seaside vacations, ocean themed altered art pieces or salt water card creations.   The tranquil color palette of calming blues, greens and teals, paired with golden yellows, subtle shades of pinks, purples, corals and reds are sure to soothe your soul.  Creating projects with a tropical flair that will “make a splash” has been made simple with decorative papers boasting mesmerizing patterns of sea shells, florals, delicate swirls and alluring hibiscus blossoms.  The intricate, detailed stamp illustrations of underwater sea creatures, glistening seashells, and exotic hibiscus flowers are sublime for shaping and creating dimensional elements adding a realistic touch to any underwater themed paper craft design.  We invite you to take the plunge and come along with us on an underwater adventure as we explore Under the Sea!

The card I'm sharing today features one of the pre-colored images of the large conch shell from the Under the Sea Paper that I die cut with the coordinating die from the release.  I used the same die to cut the silhouette of the shell from a folded piece of white cardstock to create a small shaped card. I layered the pre-colored image onto the front of the folded shape, then layered it onto one of the gorgeous card bases from the Paper Collection!  Now, if you open up the shell on the front of the card, you'll find a sentiment stamped inside!  The card opens up to lots of space on the inside for more sentiments or writing!

I also stamped and diecut three hybiscus flowers to go with it, which are also part of this new release! The step-by-step details are on the Heartfelt Creations Blog today!  There's so so many fun ways to use this set - stop by the HC blog to see all the gorgeous samples.  And -- Bonus!!  On top of that - you'll get to see work from all the new HC Design team designers for 2016!!  Awesome and amazing doesn't even describe it this month!!  See for yourself!!  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a blessed week!
