every little thing

i made a (relatively) quick and (definitely) clean and simple card for the latest challenge at a blog named hero.and truth be told, i'm not exactly sure i did it correctly, so you be the judge! :)
the challenge was to use a stamp set to create an embellishment. sound easy, but for some reason i had a hard time wrapping my head around it! lol!

in the end, i came up with this idea, and i really like the end result!

i used the hero arts/studio calico houndstooth background, which i stamped tone on tone onto some pretty, teal-y papers. then i used my circle punch and created some rolled paper flowers. bada bing, bada boom - hello embellishments! :)

i did add some pearls to the center of the flowers, which i think looks really clean and bright. 
the sentiment is from the hero arts/studio calico hooray stamp set, which i also stamped in a sort of 'tone on tone'. and oh right, i added some splashes of mr huey's lunch tray, as well.

so that's it! 


  1. This is one CAS stunner Sam! I LOVE that fab teal print for the rolled flowers, the tone on tone spray and of course, the sentiment...awesome! I had a few rolled flower dies, but just couldn't make 'em frustrating when you see other folks make gorgeous flowers with ' these! lol

  2. I love your handmade flowers! They are just perfect.

  3. So beautiful how you created your flowers! And i LOVE grey with turquoise! Great CAS card! Thanks for joining us at A Blog Named Hero!
