Hero Arts Flower stamp set

Once a month I have 3 friends come and play.  I design something for them to copy.This week we did backing papers using Hero Arts floral stamp sets. We made 3 sheets each of the backing paper. One sheet was to be cut up for the flowers and leaves to decorate.

We stamped in Versamark, then heat embossed with clear detail powder. then we used Stampin Up inks to roughly colour in the flowers and leaves. That makes for a lovely watercolour look, without too much effort.
We made a box, a sewing kit holder, a notepad holder and 6 little cards for the box. I made an 8x8 card as well.
I made my set for my  daughter Shelley, who has her 33rd Birthday today.
the sentiment on the 8x8 inch card is Papertrey Ink stamp set.

thank you for looking and hope you like them.

The Topper is from Hobby House.  I havnt put a back onto this card as I am going to use it as a topper on a square card. Although I did cut the back to make the circle card. I will use that for another topper.

Kraftyhands Blog Challenge. Bling it up.

For this months challenge at ##kraftyhands we have to bling it up! so I used this beautiful image from the new Puppies and Kittens double CD. I was in bed the other evening and this bright idea came to me to make a box with punched out spots on. I am really pleased with how it looks. My bling is the added gems, which were clear but I coloured them red with promarker pens.
The red punched frame is Martha Stewart punches.
I hope you get chance to have a go at our challenge here
Thanks for looking.
