Finally Getting Inky

Edited to add: I got a Heroine badge for this card. Entered it in a challenge on A Blog Named Hero. You can see my badge over to the left. How fun!

My sister's birthday was last week, so I took the opportunity to finally ink up a Hero Arts stamp that I've been wanting to use. Specifically, the Flower Text background stamp.

Here's what I made with it:

I had a bunch of scraps leftover from a recent project, so I used the patterned papers to paper piece the flowers and some of the leaves. This took a bit of time, but it was so much fun. I left some of the pieces flat, like the yellow flower, and some were popped up on foam tape. The flat pieces had some embellishing done to them too. For instance, on the yellow flower, I used markers to highlight the details in the petals.

On the center of the circle flowers, I used glossy accents to make them shine a bit. Love that subtle nuance. Also used some different colored gems to highlight the center of one flower, and the stamens (I think) of the red flower. And some stickles. I never use stickles, but they were perfect here.


  1. Oh, wow...this is so marvelous. I love the flowers. Really look nice on the text background.

  2. Lovely card, the background text gives the flowers a super cool effect and make the colors pop up more! Thanks for playing with us at A Blog Named Hero!

  3. Wonderful paper piecing and I love the touches of sparkle. Thanks for joining the challenge over at A Blog Named Hero.
