everything flowers. . . .

is one of my new Hero Arts stamps with which I have been making cards this past week. 



This first one I have to share with you I white embossed and then rubbed a spun sugar distress pad over it.  I used Memento markers to color in the flowers.  Love the way it turned out!  (sorry for the poor photo!)


Secondly, I rubbed the embossed image with a brushed corduroy pad for this card - what a difference!  Love this vintage look, too!


The last card (for now) is not embossed at all.  I stamped it with a festive berries distress pad to make a flowery Valentine. 

Which one is your favorite?   As you can see, this stamp can be very versatile. 

I am entering these in the Hero Arts challenge to try something new.


Hope it is warmer where you are - it's very cold here!

Hi Joy!!! We're freezing here too and it's supposed to get worse- only a high of 9 degrees forecasted for Wed:(. Stay warm!! I looooove the different looks you created with this stamp!! I am a huge lover of all things brown so I really like the second one!! But I also love how you used it for a Valentine in the third:).

isn't it amazing what different techniques and colours can do with just one stamp. Your cards are stunning. I love the red one with the hearts

Thank you for sharing all 3 different designs by using the same stamp, Joy! They are all so lovely. It's below freezing point over here!

wow Joy- you have been so prolific with your beautiful cards!!! They're all so fab but since I'm a color girl I have to say my fave is the top one.
