Balmy Breeze Collection Debut- Heartfelt Creations

Hi Everyone,

We're absolutely delighted to bring you the Balmy Breeze Collection. Old world vintage has been combined with tranquil seaside scenes (including a rustic compass, beach chair, fantastic surf, beaming lighthouses) and the Balmy Breeze paper pack, composed of a neutral color palette of peach and mint hues. This set is perfect for the crafter that loves creating vintage projects or for the stamper looking to create a project for her favorite man.

Here's what I made, a Wall hanging to adorn your kitchen or living room wall. This collection is gorgeous for just about anything as you will see from the inspiring projects by our DT that;s shared on the blog

Cut 2 pieces of kraft cardstock to 6’x8’. Adhere them together using foam tape. 

Cut a patterned paper of choice from the Balmy Breeze Collection to 5.7 x 7.7. Adhere on top of the cardstock in step (1) Tear at random areas. 

Cut another patterned paper from the same collection at 5.5 x 7.5. Tear at random areas & adhere on top the layering that’s been done at Step 2. 

Cut a piece of cream cardstock to a measurement of 5x5 and punch around the page using a Martha Stewart punch of your choice. Adhere to the centre on the board that’s been made. 

Fussy cut the lighthouse image from the tag collection of the same patterned paper collection and adhere to the punched out page. 

Stamp the two anchor images from the seascape precut set, fussy the larger image and die cut the smaller image using the anchor die from the decorative Lattice die. 

Layer the smaller anchor on top of the larger anchor and attach a brad to the loop on the top of the anchor to enable the smaller anchor to move from side to side. 

Adhere to the corner of the fussy cut image at Step 5. Die cut two pieces of the Decorative Lattice Swirls and adhere at either corner. Embellish with pearls. 

Adhere handmade flowers (made using the Vintage Floret die. Adhere blings to the centre). 

Dab the white ink stamp pad randomly at the flowers to create a washed outlook for the flowers (it also looks like the flowers have been touched by the foamy sea waters!).

Stamp the leaves image from the Beautiful You Precut Set and die cut using the leaves die from the Decorative Flower Pot Die set. 

Adhere around the lighthouse image and decorative lattice die cut. Distress the edges with white ink.

Add metal hanging piece to the back of the entire board. Your wall hanging piece is now ready!
