Heartfelt Creations - Sunrise Lily Collection Release

Hello Friends,
Rich and regal in appearance, along with a divine fragrant beauty and ornamental trumpet shaped blossom makes the lily flower a well known garden variety and a sure sign that spring has sprung.  Heartfelt Creations invites you to prepare to welcome the season of new beginnings, fresh starts and the bursting forth of nature with the new Sunrise Lily Collection. As the title of this assemblage suggests, it is filled with the romantic hues of a beautiful sunrise or sunset...glorious shades of pinks, oranges, and yellows  which also reflect the stunning color palette of the lily blossoms as they appear in the gardens themselves. Ravishing shades of greens, creams and whites bring a crispness and a breath of fresh air just as the spring season itself. Patterned papers reveal regal ornamental iron like scroll work, dainty lace elements and lovely vintage like floral details.  Beautiful imagery of lily filled vases, pretty flower adorned garden hats and luscious floral bouquets grace varying sized card panels, scrapbook layouts and embellishment tags, and are replicated in five sets of delicately detailed stamp illustrations.  The crowning glory to the collection itself is the dimensional lily flower that will add a touch of reality to each of your springtime creations.  So, chase away those winter blues brought on by old man winter, combat spring fever by filling your creative space with a touch of splendor as you begin creating with the Sunrise Lily Collection for the upcoming spring and Easter season.

Craft Hoarders Anonymous - Flower Scalloped Pop Up Box

Hello Friends,
Welcome to the February Craft Hoarders Anonymous Hop! You should be coming to my blog from Karen's Blog. To start at the beginning of the hop, and for the full list of Bloggers, go to Gloria's Blog
Today I would like to share with you this Card in a Box, also called Pop Up Box that I created for my daughter's birthday. To make the card base I used Spellbinders Scalloped Pop Up Box die set. This die set has all the cutting and folding lines which makes it really easy to assemble your Pop Up Box. For the flowers and leaves I used Spellbinders Marisa's Bouquet die set and for the "Happy Birthday To You" sentiment I used Spellbinders Bordered Sentiments die set.
I designed these dies for Spellbinders last year, they all work together really well to create this project. 
This Flower Pop Up Box can be folded flat for mailing or storing purposes. 





















Instructions:

1. Die cut Scalloped Pop Up Box largest die 4 times from natural white cardstock. Fold tabs in at the crease. Glue 4 pieces together at the tabs to form box. Fold only 3 flaps down at the crease leaving the back panel straight. Cover all panels with pattern paper.
2. Die cut 3 small rectangles from the set. Fold rectangles at the creases and glue to inside of box at 5/8” intervals. These rectangles are the support for the branches.
3. Die cut scalloped borders from the set and adhere to box .
4. Die cut Bordered Sentiments (Happy, Birthday, To You), adhere to box flaps next to scalloped border.
5. Using Marisa’s Bouquet set, die cut multiple flowers, branches, leaves and butterflies. Color with distress inks.
6. Shape petals and layer together to form flowers.  Adhere branches to rectangles inside box and then attach several sets of flowers on branches.
7. Decorate box flaps with more flowers, leaves and butterflies.  Die cut 2 sun shapes, layer together and adhere to back of the box with foam squares.  Embellish center of flowers with pearls.
I also created a square box for the card using the same sentiment dies, cardstock and pattern paper.
