To begin with for today’s cards I’m featuring Hello Hollyhocks Stamp Set & Hello Hollyhocks Crafting Dies. So, for the first card I started by stamping with embossing ink the floral cluster from the stamp set in a white card panel I repeated the stamping until the whole white card panel was stamped, then I gold heat embossed the stamping creating by own background pattern. Next, in a separate piece of white card stock I stamped, and gold embossed 2X the floral cluster. Right after the gold heat embossing, I pencil colored both images with different shades of pinks and greens as you can see in the picture above. Once the pencil coloring was done, I fussy-cut the floral clusters, and I adhered them to the gold embossed card panel, I adhered the first cluster directly to the card panel, and the second I adhered it with foam mounting tape to add dimension. For the sentiment I gold heat embossed a sentiment which is included in the stamp set, and I used one of the Essential Stitched Labels Crafting Dies to die-cut it out of the white card stock. Finally, I adhered the label to one of the top parts of the card panel with foam mounting tape, and I called that card panel done!


For the second card, I made a one-layer card as I stamped, masked, and gold heat embossed the floral clusters in a white card panel. Once all the embossing was melted, I pencil colored both floral clusters, and to give them a little contrast color, I used a Copic Marker in the color BG11 to create a shadow around the flowers, and leaves. To give a little depth to each center of the flowers, I also used RV69, and Y38. For this card sentiment I stamped with black ink another sentiment from the same stamp set. Finally, I decided to add a little extra gold touch to this panel by adhering a strip of gold card stock on one side of the card panel as you can see in the picture above.


To finish the cards off, I trimmed the edges of the card panels a little bit smaller than a standard A2 size card, and I adhered each of them to a top folding white card base with foam mounting tape to add a little dimension. Finally, I adhered here and there some Bridal Mix Jewels to add a Sparkly touch to them.
So, that’s all for today friends! I hope these cards inspire you to give these designs, and the Hello Hollyhocks Stamp Set & Hello Hollyhocks Crafting Dies Set a try!
