Our challenge this month at A Blog Named Hero is "something old, something new" - in other words, use an old Hero Arts stamp with a newer one.  The stamp I chose is a sunflower from back in the 90's - I took it off the wood block so I could use it in my stamp positioner.

I used masking to create the background sunflowers and had to fussy cut the main flower along with cutting a smaller area to give it dimension.  Since the stamp didn't come with leaves, I found some from another set that worked.  Gave the piece a black mat and added to a white card base.  The sentiment comes from a set I bought last fall.  Added a few yellow enamel dots for a little color and done!

You certainly have something old and something new in your stash for creating a card for this month's challenge - two great prizes are there to be won!

Stamps: Peonies (sentiment)

  2. Great idea and lovely card! Love using old stamps. How did you get your old rubber stamp to work in the stamp positioner?

  4. Fabulous sunflowers, Betty! Just love all the outline ones with the green leaves - great design!! One of these days I'm going to dismantle my woodblock stamps - did you do all yours? Maybe there's a service that will do them all - LOL!! Anyway - love your card!!
