Misty Flower N Dot Pattern

This is just one of my favorite stamps from Hero Arts. Unfortunately I don't see it used very often.Yesterday I got some inspiration on how to use it in a different way. It is called the Misty Flower N Dot Pattern K5096.
That kind of inspiration is always welcome.

I tried different colors and changed the design up a bit, but used the same stamps.

I also love the Leaf Print set, which is an acrylic stamp set from Hero Arts (CL395) and I use this particular leaf quite often.

I find this stamp can lend itself to vintage like cards, which suits my style.
So my first card uses Victorian Velvet distress inks and leafs which have been stamped in Vintage Photo, another favorite distress ink of mine.


For my second card I used a scrap of patterned paper in the middle and I am entering it into the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger, which can be found here, I know it is a little bit dared but I have the color combo and the three elements.
This is the inspiration photo

and this is my card


The Merci beaucoup sentiment is one I won with a card a while back on the Versus Rubber Stamp blog.


The Wisteria is beginning to bloom! In a village near to where we live.


This Snapdragon (thanks Lin!) was growing out of a wall - the picture below shows it:


Our beautiful weather has changed and we have had rain and it is cold. But it is still a beautiful time of the year!
Blessings, Jacqueline

Gorgeous cards. I really like the pink and brown one. It really suits that colouring scheme. This is not a stamp set I have seen before.

Love your soft and pretty cards!

Paula said...

love what you did with that stamp on the first card; I have trouble using that type of stamp with a more "negative" aspect. I must try it again after seeing your inspiration.

So glad that you used this HA stamp again! I don't see it often enough. Sometimes the oldies are really the goodies, isn't it? Love both of your cards!! Have a beautiful weekend!

What lovely cards! I love the Victorian Velvet Distress ink. I have it but have not broken it out yet because I wasn't sure what color to use with it. Thanks for the wonderful inspirations. Also loved the photos of spring flowers. TFS and have a wonderful day
