Dogwood Altered Cheese Box

Hello bloggers.  I am running a little late today. Not sure what happened, but I'm here now, LOL
Sounded like  pretty good excuse to me! I have a small altered cheese box today, of the Laughing Cow variety. The box is decorated with papers and flowers from the Flowering Dogwood Collection, Heartfelt Creations latest release. These flowers are so pretty and easy to assemble. I would recommend them to a novice with no hesitation. I hope you enjoy my little trinket box today.

You can find instructions for this project at the HC Blog today, with tons more inspiration from my teammates, so head on over! Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Maureen

I LOVE working with them. So here is my pretty for today, I hope you enjoy it.

Flowering Dogwood Release

Hello there bloggers. I am delighted to show you this new release today, Flowering Dogwood, it is stunning! I will use this collection for many occasions, Easter, sympathy, baptism, conformation, the possibilities are endless. Our sweet author Tracey has written up the most beautiful description for you all to enjoy!  

Heartfelt Creations invites you to usher in the spring season with the new Flowering Dogwood Collection!  Immerse yourself in this newest springtime assembling of designer papers, divinely detailed cling stamps and coordinating dies steeped with beautiful meanings and symbolism perfect for the Easter Season!  The dogwood tree is surrounded by a mesmerizing legend within the Christian faith…once the size of a mighty oak tree it was chosen to be used to construct the cross on which Jesus was to be crucified.  The tree became unhappy with its purpose and would never again grow large enough to ever build another cross.  Its branches would become narrow and crooked and no longer suitable for construction.  The delicate dogwood flower itself is a wonderful symbol of the Easter season…four petals that resemble the shape of a cross, the center laid as a crown of thorns, at the tip of each petal an indent resembling nail punctures, and a reddish hue around those indents resembling the blood of Jesus.  Soft and pastel in coloring, this newest paper collection reveals beautiful springtime shades of pinks, peaches, and greens which set stunning backdrops for scripted lettering and graceful swirls, while darker hints of blues and blacks bring out the gorgeous detail and coloring of the showy dogwood
florals.  Bountiful blossom filled branches, peaceful white doves and hillside chapels are just a few of the beautiful illustrations found within the cling stamp sets!  Assemble the perfect dimensional dogwood flower using the varying sized petals within the Flowering Dogwood Cling Stamps Set and die cut using the coordinating dies.  The ideal collection to send out springtime and Easter wishes to friends and family!

I hope you enjoy my card today it was such wonderful release to work with. I chose to create an Easter card, as it's will be here before we know it.

Here's a close-up of my pretty vellum Dogwood flowers.

Don't forget to stop over to the Heartfelt Creations Blog and see all the gorgeous work my teammates have created.
