Hero Arts, Lily Pad Challenges & More ....... Edited Version

Hi Everyone:

Just wanted to share this card I made for the Hero Arts Challenge for May, which was to use flowers and colouring. Also, the gals over at Lily Pad challenged us to use embossing on our cards.

I am afraid that maybe I might be a little late uploading it for the Lily Pad challengs. So ticked with myself for having to use someone else's computer and not having my programs that I normally use to edit my pics. Then the batteries went dead in the camera. I don't think my son will be to happy when he notices that I raided his Wii Game for batteries. Lol. Oh well, life happens. Lol.

Here is the card I made for both of these challenges and some others. Hope you like it! I had fun making it!

Card Recipe
  Vellum: Gold, Teal Green, Lavender/Michaels'
Cardstock: Autumn Leaves,Bazzil, and Stampin' Up 
Stamps: Classic Bloom/H5481 & Everyday Sayings/CL342 - Hero Arts
Markers: Tombo Makers - Teal Green, Lgt.Brown, & Purple, white gel pen
Punches: Corner Rounder/Creative Memories, Lace Punch/Martha Stewart
Embossing Powders: White/The Artful Stamper
Embellishments: Black Pearls/ e.Company/Prima
Die Cuts: Leaves/SVG CutFiles
Inks: Basic Black/Stampin' Up

This card was made using embossing powder to emboss a white flower on Vellum. I used lavender, teal green, and gold vellum. Once embossed I repeated this step. I then cut out the embossed centers of the second group of embossed flowers.  This was to add some layering to each flower center, thus creating depth and dimension. ( I hope the close up shots aren't too big, but some of you requested bigger pics! Lol. Your wish is my command! Lol!) It really does give you a better idea of what was achieved here. Only showing two here cuz I think you get the idea!

I would also like to submit this card to the following challenges:
Paper Play Challenge: Blossoms and Blooms
Paper Crafting Journey: Anything Goes and/or Use your Favourite 
Creative Craft World: 3 or More Flowers

If you read my earlier post you would have read that I thought my submission for Lily Pad was late. Well the sweet Vicky was in touch to let me know that my submission was excepted. Yahoo! I am so happy about that, but I do sometimes get the whole time zone thing mixed up when submitting for deadlines.  Also, wanted to share with you Canadian Gals that you can purchase your Hero Arts stamps and Tombo Products here. You may also click on Scraptacular Logo in my sidebar. Jessica would love to help you out I am sure! Be sure to check out the blog because this weekend there is an On-line Crop to celebrate the 2nd Birthday of Local Scrappy Store. Lots of challenges and prizes.

Thanks for dropping bye. I hope that I have inspired you to break out the embossing powders and make some beautiful flowers too.  You never know maybe there will be a tutorial on how to make this card in the near future! Lol! Until next time, take care and happy scrapping.

Love your pretty vellum blossom card. Vellum just always makes a project a little more special and I love that you have three colours. The white stamping really makes them show up.
Glad to hear you had them done in time to submit.
Thanks for sharing! :)
