Flower Cards

Hello Everyone,

This card was inspired by a card that I saw in Paper Creations Magazine (spring 2011 issue, page 77). I am not sure who the author is of this inspiration. The stamps that I used are Hero Arts: Large Blossom CG271 and Birthday messages CL139. I stamped the Large Blossom stamp unto red paper with white polka dots using white embossing powder. I like the effect of the embossing powder and that there was not any coloring involved. This was a simple card to make once I figured out the colors of the paper and my design that I wanted to use. I am entering this in the current Hero Arts Challenge.

I made this card (below) for the 50grand challenge sponsored by Hero Arts over on the Hero Arts Flickr group. The stamps used are Hero Arts: Bird Garden H5396, Wallpaper Flowers K5185, and Floral Scallop K5358. The white paper was embossed with the dotted swiss cuttlebug embossing folder, but the embossing doesn't show up very well on camera. This card looks better in real life.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments.

Hi Sue! Your cards are so, so beautiful! Which white embossing powder do you use and are you happy with it? I just love the rich colours of the first card. And I love your second card that highlights three different stamps! Such a beautiful design!
