Sending You Hugs

Hello there, Michelle here to share a card with you using the Watering Can and Flowers Fancy Dies. Have you seen that we are running a fun challenge? For the Hero Arts Stay Crafty Challenge this week we are making encouragement cards and these dies work perfectly for sending some love and hugs.

For my card, I started off by die cutting the Watering Can and Flowers Fancy Dies from Hero Hues Dove White Premium Cardstock. I then coloured them with Copic Markers but you could cut them from coloured cardstock too. I then arranged all of the flowers and leaves in to the watering can, to look like a lovely bouquet. They were secured at the back with tape.

I took a top folding card base and masked off the bottom edges and sides. Using an ink blending brush, I then applied Pool Party Reactive Ink to create a soft background and to have a place for the watering can to stand on, which was added with foam tape.

I then took the sentiment from the Hello Stamp & Cut stamp set and stamped it on to Hero Hues Pitch Black Premium Cardstock with Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut into a strip and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a little enamel dot from the Hero Hues Aquas Enamel Dots pack to the handle of the watering can. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Happy stamping and take care!

Is the water can & tulips from a new member kit? The only one I can see on my tablet is the cherry tree /oriental theme kit from March?
If this is part of a new kit I must buy it! Your card is beautiful and has given me an idea!
Thanks for sharing your creation. I love your shading on the tulips too!
