Dots N Flowers from Hero Arts

Hi there!

One of the new stamps from Hero Arts is the clear stamp set "Dots N Flowers".
When I first saw this set I was not really excited about it but after playing a bit with some of the stamps , I think it's super beautiful, and I have many ideas on how these stamps can be used.

Today I would like to show you 2 cards that I made for my 2. blogday on Kreativefornemmelser´s Blog. I've used white embossing on the lovely flower stamp. A little tip for when you work with embossing - make sure that your Heatgun is very hot before you use it at your project, that way you avoid some of the powder is blown off the paper before it melts;)
I used distress inks and Memento markers for coloring the stamp.

Supplies:
Stamps: Hero Arts clearstamps "Dots N Flowers" og Hero Arts Cling stamp "Dots"
Inks: "Distress Ink "Wild honey", Distress Ink "Spun sugar", Distress Ink "Crushed olive"
paper: Kraft og Hero Hues Pine
 White embossing + Watermark stamp pad "Champagne", Silk ribbon Mint,  pearls and Momento Markers



Supplies:
Stamps: Hero Arts clearstamps "Dots N Flowers" og Hero Arts Cling træstempel "Raindrop Background"
Inks: "Distress Ink "Victorian velvet", Distress Ink "Bundled sage" og Distress Ink "Forest Moss"
Paper: Hero Hues Pine and Hero Hues Carnation
White embossing + Watermark stamp pad "Champagne",Ribbon from May Arts and pearls and Momento Markers
We have the most beautiful sunshine today - these cards are real spring cards right?  
Enjoy your day girls!
HUGS, Sanne

Hvor er det bare nogle skønne kort i fantastiske forårsfarver. Købte stemplerne til Scrap i det Jyske og glæder mig til jeg får tid til at lege med dem.

ps. var ellers en tur i Hellerup idag, kunne nu ha været sjovt hvis jeg lige kunne ha pustet dig i nakken ;) Men vi ses jo lørdag knus

These are lovely Sanne! I've discovered that if you warm the underside of the card before moving to the top side the embossing powder is less likely to blow away, Jo x

AnitaRex said...

Beautiful! Such a great way to use this stamp! :>

Lin said...

Love what you did with this stamp, Sanne, you've inspired me to play with it again......

Hellemor said...

Rigtig smukke kort, Sanne. Super flot og "blød" farvelægning. Det sidste kort er jo lige mine farver.

Just love what you did here, Sanne! So pretty!

And I agree that at first look that stamp doesn't seem very exciting -- but then you start playing with it and can't stop! :)
