Done in 60 minutes

I had the pleasure in participating in the Hero Arts Flickr Group 90 minute scramble on the weekend. I've missed the last two as I have been away. The challenge was to make a card with 'Filler stamps' (the ones that we usually don't use), add stitching (faux OK) and handwrite the sentiment. I had to read the instruction more than once before it clicked. I first got out all my HA stamps and picked one with the Four Dolls (there are lantern, fan and flower filler stamps) and wanted to hang the pretty lanterns with twine. The lanterns were stamped onto the cardstock as well as patterned paper and cut out. I made a flower with die cut scalloped circles from 2 patterned papers and edged them with distress ink and scrunched them up before assembling the flower. The sentiment and faux stitching was done with a white gel pen. This can be either a Birthday or Anniversary card. I had the whole card completed in 60 minutes! Thank you to everyone for the lovely comments on Flickr when this card was uploaded yesterday. This card has been submitted to HA July Flower challenge and Moxie Fab World Birthday challenge.

My previous post had over 400 visits in one day, thanks to Jennifer McGuire's re-tweet! It was also picked as a CAS Favourite in Splitcoast Stampers with over 270 views and favourited 7 times in one day! Thanks for the support! It really made my day yesterday!!

This is the Hero Arts stamp set - I've used the dolls and the border stamps but have never touched the 'Filler' stamps, until now!!
