Hydrangea card

I love a good deal, especially if it something I know I will use.  This hydrangea stamp was such a deal, I had gone into Michael's for something else, but I always walk through the papercrafting isles to see what might be new or on sale and this stamp, by Hero Arts was the deal of the day (or week), I now cannot remember.  I had my eye on this stamp for a while and had seen here and there, looking through magazines and on blogs.  I think I can remember seeing it used in much the same way I used it.  Stamping it on Kraft cardstock in Tuxedo black and highlighting the image with a white gel pen.  I inked the edges of the panel and used foam tape to add dimension.  I love how it turned out.  It is so stunning and I think it is a very versatile design.  I could have added any sentiment, but this one is for a friend who is currently away from home and I just wanted to give a bit of encouragement.

Have a great day!  Check back tomorrow for more Inspired Stamps.  Leave me a comment, I love to hear from you.


  1. This is absolutely beautiful! I love the way this flower looks stamped on kraft, and the white pen highlights add a wonderful detail.

  2. Gorgeous! The white highlights are just perfect. WOW! I'd make a bunch of these to have on for any occasion.
