Flower Cascade birthday card

I recently was lucky enough to be chosen as a winner for a giveway on Vandana Rastogi's instagram feed - she was giving away the Flower Cascade cling stamp from Penny Black, which has been on my wish list for a little while now. It arrived in the mail just the other day, and I had to get creating with it immediately! Thanks so much, Vandana!

 I used the Highline Ironwork background stamp from Hero Arts, gold embossed and then coloured with Zig clean color real brush markers and water.

Celebrate your birthday

I keep trying to build up my stash of birthday cards, but people keep having birthdays!!

I used the no-line watercolour technique on the bouquet stamp from Concord & 9th's "Hello Lovely" stamp set, and I added a sentiment from Avery Elle's "Sentimental". I put the watercolour panel onto a notecard from Hero Arts, and added some faux stitching lines as a finishing touch.

Anything Goes at A Blog Named Hero

Our challenge this month at A Blog Named Hero is Anything Goes, and we are playing with our favourite stamps - Hero Arts!!
I stamped the Large Flower Background stamp from Hero Arts onto some watercolour paper, then embossed with gold embossing powder. I then coloured in specific places with some Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then sprayed with water.  I then fussy cut around part of the image and adhered it to a card front with a gold embossed sentiment from "You're So Lovely", and a strip of metallic gold cardstock.
 I then had more than half of the stamped image left over, so I cut out the image on the other side and made another card - two for the price of one! This time, I used a sentiment from "Best Wishes".

Fusion: Truck Bouquet

Welcome to a new challenge at Fusion!
I stamped the Wplus9 "Beautiful Bouquets: Dahlias" multiple times onto some Canson Montval watercolour paper, and coloured the images with Zig Clean color real brush markers and water.  I added the sentiment from Avery Elle "Sentimental" and white heat embossed it on some vellum and wrapped it around the watercolour panel before mounting the lot onto a top folding white card base. Some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finished off my card.
