Heartfelt Creations May Release Sun Kissed Fleur Collection - Sun Kissed Fleur Gift Box

Hello Friends!
I am excited to announce that I have been working with Heartfelt Creations as an artist designing new products for them. My project for today features some of the products I have designed for them, the Gift Ensemble Die, Sun Kissed Fleur Stamp and coordinating Sun Kissed Fleur Die.

We are pleased to introduce the Sun Kissed Fleur CollectionThis collection includes 2 dies: the Gift Ensemble die (yes, you can make a fancy box with this die!) and the Sun Kissed Fleur die which cuts out 10 different flowers at a time. How's that for value?
The paper collection, called Sun Kissed Collection, comes in vibrant aquas and oranges and fades to light greens and yellows. The paper pack comes with 24 12 x 12 papers that have designs on both sides and are acid & lignen free. There are 2 sheets per design; some are dramatic; others are subdued.
You also have a wonderful selection of floral stamps to choose from: fancy tags, an overflowing basket, beautiful patterned backgrounds, borders and corners.
Leave a comment on the Heartfelt Creations Blog by May 14th and you will be eligible to win the entire release valued at $180.91

Here is the gift box I created using the Gift Ensemble Die, this box is really simple to make, all the work is in the die, even the creasing lines! For the flowers I used  Sun Kissed Fleur Stamp and coordinating Sun Kissed Fleur Die. With these sets you can stamp 12 flowers and leaves with one stamp and die cut them all with one coordinating die, all 12 of them at one time!!!


Other Supplies:

Bazzill Kraft Cardstock, Neenah Paper Natural White Cardstock, Tsukineko Memento Rich Cocoa Ink, Rangers Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass, Want 2 Scrap Bronze Pearls, Adhesive Foam Squares.


1. Gift box is 3 ½”  x  2 ¼ “.  Using largest die from the Gift Ensemble Die set, die cut 4 pieces with kraft cardstock. Fold at creasing lines and glue lacey sides together to form box.  Fold top and bottom flaps at creasing lines and close by overlapping flaps and tucking the last flap under the first one.

2. Cut 4 panels using SunKissed Paper Collection measuring  3 3/8” x 2 1/8”, glue to gift box sides.  Add color to edges of box using distress ink.

3.Using Sun KissedFleur PreCut Set, stamp flowers and leaves on natural white cardstock, die cut with coordinating Sun Kissed Fleur Die. Color flowers and leaves with metallic paints and distress inks, shape petals and layer to form flowers. Embellish flowers with bronze pearls in the center. 

4. Die cut 2 leafy swirls from the Gift Ensemble Die set and color with distress ink.

5. Arrange flowers, leaves and swirls to side and top of box as pictured.
