Hi all!

For today’s Make a Card Monday, I wanted to use Hero Arts’ 4 Flowers Cling stamp set and stamp the flowers creating a pattern. In order to break up the pattern and create interest, I used bands of card stock in different colors (1-1/4″ x 3-3/4″). In this case I used 4 colors from Stampin’ Up!: Baja Breez, Kiwi Kiss, Sahara Sand, and Close to Cocoa. So that I wouldn’t have to break out four different ink colors, I create a subtle texture by only using VersaMark ink. I tend to only use VersaMark for embossing, but it’s such a versatile ink! :)

The sentiment on the card comes from another Hero Arts stamp set, Thank You For Being My Friend. Like I say in the video, I’ve been turning to this stamp set over and over again recently. It has awesome sentiments and it covers nearly every kind of card I make.

Anyhow, enjoy! :)
