Hello my friends!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are all staying happy & healthy!
The other day I got the bright idea to use my favorite Hero Arts 'Flowers & Bees' (2021) stamp/die set
to create some floral panels to use on cards for various occasions. But, instead of simply stamping on white card stock then coloring with various coloring mediums, I decided to stamp onto designer paper then simply color the leaves and branch ... here's what I came up with:
For this first card, I've stamped/die cut this floral using Craft Consortium Ink Drops - Candy 6x6 paper panel. After stamping & die cutting several different colored panels, I interchanged the remainder of each designer paper for my backgrounds.
For the other cards I used papers from the 'Happy Watercolor' by Make & Create. (I have no idea where I got this 6x6 paper pad and I couldn't find it online ... sorry).
On my 1st card I used a Martha Stewart 3-1 Butterflies punch and the sentiment is a very old vertical stamp by Wordsworth. On the 2nd card I've used Nuvo crystal drops and the sentiments are from the Creative Expressions Wordies Sentiment Sheets 'Birthday' (CEW001).

Here are a couple more I created and will use for sympathy cards. I am down to ONE sympathy card in my sale box so I need to get busy replenishing that category. How sad is that ... lately I've been selling as many sympathy cards as I have been birthday card! 😢
Tombow markers were used to color the leaves & stems.
