Tall Flowers Minus the Tall

I pulled my Hero Arts Tall Flowers stamp out of my stamp box...love this stamp!!  I had made a couple cards with it last year...when I spied in my box of stamps, I had to pull it out, having thought of another slightly different way to make a card with it...
I inked as little of the stems as possible twice on a card-sized piece of kraft paper, with versa mark and white embossed.  Here's a pic I took to show you what I did (you can click on it to see closer)...
I cut around all the flowers...stem sides, cutting all the stems off...trimmed the sides, top and bottom with my paper cutter...and colored the flowers with my Prismacolor Pencils.  Added rhinestones to all the solid white flowers, and popped up on the kraft card.

  Thought I'd show you the other two cards...
 Had totally forgotten about the white one until I searched my blog to find the kraft one.  I really like the cut around flowers more than the cut off flowers on the white card.  The sentiment I used on today's card is from a Hero Arts sentiment set, the 3 lined sentiment was cut apart to make one long lined sentiment.  And yes...I DO LOVE the pinks, purples and teals:):)!!  FUN...FUN...FUN!!!  
Hope your week is amazing:)!! Hugs!! Lisa

  1. All beautiful cards! Love how you designed the first card by cutting below the top part and above the lower part. You're always thinking outside the box!

  2. I love seeing the different ways you used the tall flowers stamps. All are so pretty! Love your coloring too -- you're the one that got me interested in Prismacolor Pencils!

  3. This is gorgeous! I can't believe how bright and solid those flowers look being colored with pencils - do you teach a class (or have a video)? I love how you cut around the flowers so the sentiment is on the bottom between the flower layers.

  8. What a great way to use the tall flowers making them not so tall. It really opens up some new possibilities for that stamp. Great job on all of them!
