Welcome Sign

Welcome Sign

Hi everyone!  Thanks for popping by today 🙂   Welcome to some Wednesday inspiration for Heartfelt Creations!

I am super excited because this week Heartfelt Creations has released the gorgeous new “Classic Sunflower Collection” and I want to share with you a fun little Welcome Sign I created featuring some of this lovely collection.  Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers and I just love harvest time which brings us all of the gorgeous autumn colors so this collection was right up my alley!

Products Used:

HCD 726 – Delicate Asters Die (leaves)
HCD 753 – Classic Sunflower Die
HCDP1 247 – Classic Sunflower Collection

Project Instructions:

Other products: Brown Card Stock, Letters cutout using my Cameo in ivory Card Stock, Distressed Inks, Ribbon and glitter from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by cutting six layers for the base of the sign out of Brown Card Stock.  This will give your sign lots of strength.  Cut two layers in the same size and then the next two a little smaller and finally the last two a bit smaller again so you have a nice layered effect.  I made my layers in all the same color brown cardstock but if I were to do it again I think I might add a contrasting color to show the layering effect.  For the shape, I made my own template that you can download here.  Next select a piece of paper from the collection that you would like to use for the sign and cut it again making it smaller then the last 2 layers of Brown and glue them all together.   I cut out the welcome letters using my cutting machine so once they have been cut take the letters and attach them to the sign before you start to decorate.  For the rooster, I simply fussy cut out of the premade image included in the paper collection.  Stamp, stamp, distress and die cut out some of the lovely Classic Sunflowers, assemble and finish it off in the center with some Spring Bling Prills!  Display proudly and enjoy!

A very special thanks to all of my lovely followers who support me each and every week.  I truly appreciate your kindness and blog friendship.

Have a wonderful day!

I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
