Welcome to my first post as a member of the 
HEARTFELT CREATIONS DESIGN TEAM
I am sharing my Summer Wreath which I made using the
Sweet Peony Collection

Heartfelt Creations ingredients are:- Sweet Peony Collection paper pad, Under the Sea Collection paper pad, Large Sweet Peony stamp set, Large Sweet Peony die set, Small Sweet Peony stamp set,  Small sweet Peony die set, Delux Flower Shaping Kit
Other items:- Stampin up inks (Berry Burst, Marina Mist, Peekabo Peach, soft suede, Early Espresso, Tranquil Tide, Pear Pizzazz), Dressmaker pins, Coloured pearls, 14” polystyrene foam ring, Ribbon, Brown acrylic paint

 Make large flowers x 34:- Stamp on the pink colours using Berry Burst ink. The blue and orange papers are from the Under the Sea Collection – use Marina Mist and Early Espresso/Peekabo Peach to stamp and edge the blue and orange flowers. Each flower is made from 3 layers - the large sweet peony stamp  and one of the 3.5” x 1.75” flowers in the small sweet peony stamp set.
 When the flowers have been stamped and die cut spray the back of the flower with a mist of water, use the flower shaping kit to add definition to the edges and nip the petals gently to create a more pointed flower. Once the flowers are dry, edge with ink and glue together.

 Paint the foam ring with brown acrylic paint and allow to dry. Tie the ribbon around the ring, then position the flowers onto the ring using dress makers pins – push  one pin through the middle of each flower (use a thimble to do this).
Using the green paper from the pad, make as many large leafs as desired:- Stamp in Pear Pizzazz ink, diecut, shape and edge in Tranquil Tide ink.
 Position the leafs amongst the flowers with hot glue/pins.
  Make smaller flowers from the dark pink paper in the pad to fill any big spaces on the wreath.
Adhere a pearl to the centre of each flower to cover the pin head.

I hope you like my wreath
and would love it if you would follow me on my Heartfelt journey.
