Now for my project made with Heartfelt Creations Products from Joan's Gardens:
  Nothing looks so lovely as a fresh cut bouquet of flowers, even if they are not real. I stamped the Daisy Patch Bouquet and individual Daisy Patch Flowers on white glossy cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I colored the bouquet by first masking the flowers and sponging the leaves with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink. Then I masked the leaves and sponged Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink on the flowers. Rubbed off the excess ink from the embossed surfaces and added some yellow to the centers with Copic Y02. I also colored the individual flowers in the same manner. I cut out the bouquet without the stems. I used the exclusive Heartfelt Creations Daisy Patch Dies to cut out 8 individual flowers which I shaped and glued to the bouquet creating a great dimensional effect.  For the jar, I stamped the Ball Jar Stamp directly on a 5" x3.75" mat of  Basic Grey Pink Pattern  with Memento Black Tuxedo ink, stamped a second jar on white cardstock and a third one on acetate using Stazon Black ink for this one. I stamped stems from the bouquet stamp with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink on the white jar and then colored the water with Copics B000 and C00.   I glued the acetate jar to the white jar and attached a ribbon to the neck of the jar. This was then attached to the jar on the mat of pink. I then attached my bouquet of pink Daisies with dimensionals above the jar. I finished the card by attaching my image to a mat of Basic Grey  Pattern that complements the colors in the flowers and then to the card base of black.  These stamps and die cuts make it so very easy to create lovely flowers that will be everlasting.
Products used:
HCPC 3318 Daisy Patch Flowers
HCPC 3325 Daisy Patch Bouquet
HCPC Jean Pocket/Ball Jar
HCD 703 Daisy Patch Diecuts
