My stamping friend, Jacqueline, has inspired me to dig out my Hero Arts shadow stamps and use them again.  Added impetus for making this card was a request for masculine sympathy cards with no sentiment - a real challenge for me!  Hope this fills the bill.
I used a HA shadow stamp with silver shadow ink - I took all my wood stamps off the blocks so don't even know which stamp I used.  The flower was embossed with liquid platinum.

Stamp: HA shadow
Other: MB chloe stem die; HA shadow silver ink; Ranger embossing powder.

Thanks for looking.  Betty


  1. Fantastic card Betty. And it could suit many occasions. Would be great in a boxed set with varied sentiment banners to place when needed. Or even different sentiment panels for interior placement...oh you have given me ideas!

  2. What an elegant card, Betty! Your shadow stamping is such a beautiful background for the stem die cut...Love the shimmer from the liquid platinum, too!

  3. Love the effect of the shadow stamps, Betty - nice to get some some mileage from them!!

  4. Love this! I sold a lot of my old shadow stamps, but do have a couple left. Will have to give them a go, too, now that I have seen what you and Jacqueline have been up to!

  5. The liquid platinum is just lovely - the card is perfect!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave comments - they make my day!
