Vintage Floret Bouquets

 Here is a sample of the Vintage Floret Bouquet again, only this time I colored the flowers pink instead of the teal blue.  It creates a totally different look.  Also I cut the image down closer and so more of the the beautiful decorator paper can show too.  Then I added some dimension to the flowers by popping out some of the flowers. 
This is a time saving tip when making cards.  One thing that I like to do is stamp several different size flowers onto white cardstock.  Then I color them different colors and cut them out with the matching die.  I then have several flowers that are colored and ready to use on future projects.  All I need to do is grab some flowers and start layering them and adding them to my card or altered project.  I made this pencil holder/calender from the Score, Fold, Create book from Scor-Pal.  With the clear directions and the colored pictures, it was easy to make.  I used the papers from the Vintage Floret Collection to cover the project and for the layering pieces.  Using the paper packs make it so easy to coordinate papers and everything looks so well together.  Then I used the ready made flowers to decorate the project!  Check out more great projects on the Heartfelt Creations blog!
