Misti and Hero Arts Dahlia


Hi cardmaking friends and welcome back.  It's Sandi MacIver here and today I have a Mini Slimline Hero Arts Dahlia Card to share with you.  

Yet another stamp and die set from that bin labeled "bought but not used yet"....I am determined to empty that thing, LOL. 

 As all the Dahlia's are showing their fall colors right now, I thought it would be the perfect time to color this sweet stamp up.  

I decided on a gray/yellow color combo as I really like how the yellow contrasts and POPS. 


How to create the Mini Slimline Hero Arts Dahlia Card:

Use the Misti Stamping Tool to stamp the Dahlia in Gina K Amalgam Ink (copic friendly). 

 Heat set it until it's dry and then color with copic markers 

 Next, use the coordinating die to cut out the image. 

 Place the card front into the Misti and use VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink to stamp the image twice in black. 

 TIP - this is my favorite black ink for outline stamping, it's so BLACK.....you will love it, you only have to stamp once. Finally, white heat emboss the sentiment onto a scrap of black and trim.

Mini Slimline Cards:

I decided on the mini slimline size of card because of the size of the image. 
 It's smallish, and looks fabulous stamped in black to create interest in the background.
 I also didn't have time for a pile of coloring.  Being able to color just one image and have it absolutely POP of my card is ideal.

 I also find mini slimline cards are the perfect size to send someone a little hello how are you. (you don't have to write a book to fill the inside, LOL).

 Finally, mail it in one of the beautiful Lemon Chiffon mini slimline envelopes from Simon Says Stamp (they are so pretty) .
