Today I bring to you a card created using 2 different collections. The flowers and leaves are from the new Hollyhocks collection, and the paper I used for my slimline card is the Wild Rose Collection paper. I adore both collections. 

I created the card by cutting a piece of card stock 8 1/2 x 8, and scoring it in half and folding the card. You now have an 8 1/2 x4 inch card base. I cut a piece of Wild Rose paper 8 1/2 by 4 and adhered it to the front of the card. I cut down the next Wild rose paper to 3 1/4 x 8 inches and layered it on top.


I created all of the flowers and leaves by stamping and coloring them with inks, and I used the Stem with Leaves from the  Hollyhocks Stem and Blooms Cling Stamp Set , inked it and placed it on the front of the card. This was my base for the flowers and leaves. 

I layered the flowers and leaves over the Stem with Leaves. I created all different sizes Hollyhocks,  leaves, and tiny buds. I used stamen for the middle of the flowers. I fussy cut the sentiment and layered it on another piece of scrap paper. I then adhered it to the card. 

I hope you enjoy the hop this month! There is so much inspiration here. Good Luck!!

  1. Girl, you have a way with flowers, and that is a fact! The way these cascade down the side of your card is just beautiful! Your eye for color never disappoints, either! Thanks for hopping with us this month, my friend! xo

  2. What a beauty! Wonderful flowers and I love how your arrangement just flows! Overall lovely design!

  3. Gorgeous card - you really show off the hollyhock collection and the colors are perfect :)

  6. LOVE your graduated sizes of beautiful hollyhocks! As soon as I saw this collection, I knew I'd be adding stamps and dies to my inventory. Nice work!

  7. Gorgeous flower design and I love the wonderful colors!

  8. I almost ordered that stamp set a few minutes ago. Maybe with my next order...I just love these flowers. They take a long time to bloom (2 years!), so I don't grow them anymore. I might as well just create cards with them :)

  9. Beautiful card. I love the way the flowers flow.

  10. Wow!! What a beautiful vine of Hollyhocks "growing" up the card front!! Gorgeous details in each blossom with the ink along the edge, and the pretty golden stamens! Stunning card and flowers!!

  15. Fabulous card! I love the colors and dimension of these lovely flowers!

  16. I love this! I recently made a card with the hollyhocks and was at a loss on how to do a sentiment with it. I love the little strip at the bottom for that, it's just the right touch!

  17. Beautiful, love your color choices!


Love hearing your beautiful words!!!!
