Home Decor Heart

Hey there!
Today I'm over on the
 sharing a home decor piece
that anyone can create using a variety of dies from

I started by gathering some supplies:
9 x 10 x 3/8 inch chipboard heart
12 x 12 inch printed card stock
white and pink printer paper
nesting flower die set

I die cut several pieces of the printer paper in various
sizes with the flower dies.  

I layered the flower pieces, poked a hole in the center
and spritzed with water.

Taking 1 layer at a time, I "scrunched" each
layer up to the center.

These are the 3 flowers I created.
Using the various sizes and varying the number of layers
gives each flower a unique look.

I traced the heart on the backside of the printed card stock and cut.
I painted the edges of the heart with white acrylic paint,
adhered the printed card stock with decoupage medium
and added a piece of pink picot edge ribbon.

I decided I wanted to add a little texture to the heart base,
so I used a frame die and a honeycomb die
and cut and trimmed, in what I thought looked good
and added the effect I wanted, before adhering to the heart base.

I added the flowers and die cut some foliage and butterflies
to complete my design.

Dies used:
