Floral Blossoms Card


Hello!  Happy Monday!  We are starting this week with gorgeous temperatures straight from a beautiful weekend!  I just can't get over how hot it is!  I've been contemplating turning on the a/c how hot it is!  When I looked at the forecast for this week I changed my mind as it's cooling down so I better enjoy it while I can!

Today I have a card to share with you using some new stamps from Hero Arts Basic Grey Konnichiwa line.  When I saw this set I had to have it, love the flowers!


I am entering this card into this month's Hero Arts contest:

I used the gorgeous flowers from the Floral Blossom set by Hero Arts.  I love it!  I also used one of my favorite backgrounds the zig zag by HA.  I stamped the background in raspberry pigment ink by colorbox.  Stamped the flowers in moss green pigment ink and cut with my cutter a square and than hand cut the flowers that hang off.  Than I stamped the flowers again in the raspberry and cut them out and mounted them with foam dots.  Stamped the sentiment from the set Good Friends by HA too.   Love this sentiment!  Put the whole card together and realized it needed something so I mounted it with some dark chocolate cardstock by PTI.  I so enjoyed making this card and love it!  I can't wait to play with this stamp again!

Ariel is still sick and is home today.  She still has a slight fever but I am hoping she will be well enough for school tomorrow.  She seemed to be doing a lot better this am so Carter really enjoyed having her home with him!  They were sitting coloring and I realized what am I doing cleaning I should craft too!  So I got a card made today!  :>  I kinda feel like I am on a roll and loving card making again!  :>

Well I am off to get dinner ready as the kids have there last skating lesson today!  (Even though Ariel isn't feeling all that well she is begging to go!)  Looking forward to being done but happy with how well the kids did with it!  :>  See you soon!

This is so eye-catching, Anita! I love how you cut the box and have the leaves hanging out of it (tricky?). This is a great set and you have used it so beautifully. Love that background, too. All good!
