Floral thanks

Hi! I’m back!

Today I FINALLY got a chance to get creative and make some cards! I have some new stamps that have arrived over the last few weeks and today I christened some. This stamp is one of them. It uses the Hero Arts Tall Flower woodblock stamp. I used Prismacolor pencils to colour in the flower and instead of grabbing the Gamsol (my usual go to) I used a Derwent blending pencil…still some practise is needed! Lots of blending of distress inks on the background with the HA Envelope Pattern stamp lightly over the top.
I am entering this into the current Hero Arts challenge which is to use at least one flower and I also used a coloured pencil technique!


Stamps: Hero Arts Tall Flower (K5431), Hero Arts Envelope pattern (S5507)
Ink: Versafine Ink – Onyx Black, Versa Color – Umber, Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Worn Lipstick, Scattered Straw and Dried Marigold
Card: Regal Craft Card (white textured DL fold), X-Press It blending card
Other Supplies: Prismacolor pencils, Derwent Blending Pencil, Kaisercraft pearls – pearl, Making Memories Metal ‘Thanks’ tag (which I went over in a black permanent texta), White sheer ribbon,thin green satin ribbon, foam dimensionals, WRMK Corner chomper

Thanks for looking. I hope to have another card to share with you really soon!
Take care,



  1. This is stunning!! I love the background distressing..(just got my distress inks..just about learning to play with them…)
    This stamp and the envelope pattern has been on my wish list for a long time…
    Have a great day!

  2. I love that flower stamp and you did such a great card with it! Beautiful colours and I think the blending is wonderful!

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous! What a fab flower I love all those rich bright colours, and that is the cutest tag!
    I was so excited when I won some Hero Arts stamps, yesterday I was able to finally order the Envelope Pattern that you keep showing off (can’t wait).

  4. This card is absolutely wonderful. I just LOVE the colours and the whole layout. Congratulations

  5. Gorgeous colours!
