A Hero Arts Retailer

Guest Designer May 2019


Hello there,

We are very please to present our May Guest Designer, Ilina Grouse.   She is a former a2z DT and is currently on several design teams including Hero Arts.  I bet you’ve been inspired by her work just like I have.  Let’s hear from her and see what she created for us today.

Hi everyone,

I am honored to be a guest designer for A2ZScrapbooking this month. This month’s challenge is flowers, so I used the Color Layering TIger Lily set and dies, Peonies stamp set and the new Flower Garden Fancy dies.

To make my card I started by stamping the Tiger Lilies using Soft Pink, Bubble Gum and Raspberry Jam ink pads, next I die cut them using the coordinating dies. Set them aside.
Die cut the Flower Garden fancy die using Pitch Black card stock. Stamp sentiment from Peonies set in Versamark on Pitch Black card stock and emboss in white. Cut to size.
Assemble the elements onto top folding note card made from Pitch black card stock. Once done add pink Nuvo Drops to finish off the card.

Thank you so much for taking time to create for us Ilina.  This card is just amazing.  To see more of Ilina’s beautiful work, hop over to her blog: Creativity Within.  Or connect with her on Facebook.
