thinking of you


This month's featured technique at Hero Arts is handmade flowers. For my card, I made mine by following Dawn McVey's great video tutorial. I stamped Hero Arts' small solid flower in Picked Raspberry distress ink and punched out three circles with a scalloped circle punch. 


After crumpling the circles, I layered them together and added a button. My flowers aren't as "poofy" as Dawn's because she used text paper and I used cardstock. The leaves were handcut after stamping the same flower with Peeled Paint distress ink.

I stamped the Houndstooth pattern on kraft cardstock with brown shadow ink, and the sentiment was stamped with a mid tone shadow ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Great idea to use that stamp for both the flower and the leaves - so "designer" looking. Very sweet bloom and great background to display it.
