Good Morning all..
Again it’s time to share Wednesday inspiration for Heartfelt Creations. It’s also a new release day and all we designers are here to take an adventure on the path less traveled and lose yourself in an enchanting woodsy wonderland filled with magnificent wildlife, beautiful scenic expanses and delicate field flowers.
Heartfelt Creations invites you to explore the new Woodsy Wonderland Collection. Step softly as to not spook the peaceful inhabitants or trample the native wildflowers as you set about exploring your surroundings. Immerse yourself in a stunning paper collection showcasing a beautiful outdoor themed color palette of rushing river blues, orange and yellow sunset hues, grass like greens accented with the softest wildflower whites, deep purples, and posy pinks, pulled together and grounded with dark tree bark browns, sky blues and moss like greens. Discover charming cottages, babbling brooks, and grassy fields boasting home to majestic deer, chattering squirrels, prancing skunks and frolicking foxes. Bold stripes and crosshatch patterns will remind you of trampled wildlife trails, creating eye catching backgrounds for the tiny woodland creatures depicted on the varying sizes of premade card panels or within the three extremely detailed and realistic forest themed cling stamp sets which provide the ideal elements for creating your very own woodsy wonderland on your next paper crafting project. Pair with the coordinating dies to create dimensional forest scenes laden with fallen tree stumps, grassy knolls, darting rabbits, scampering raccoons, decorative butterflies and song filled birds all at play in majestically treed forests! So, breathe deeply, exhale and allow the beauty of our enchanting woodlands to bring a sense of wonder, calm and peace to your soul as you craft your cares and worries away in the tranquility of our Woodsy Wonderland Collection.

Once all the elements are painted and cut Cut 3 pieces of dark green pattern paper with Classic Basic Border Die.
Arrange the pieces inside the box forming peaks and valleys. Cut a long strip of a green strip of card stock and die cut multiple times usingIcicless die from Snow Kissed Collection. These are used to give a look of grass to cover the empty spaces between all the critters. Once you decide how to place the elements layer them using foam dots. Glue down the whole box.
