Hero Arts Dahlia Card

Hi cardmaking friends and welcome back.  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.

Funny thing about this “BIN” – see the end of this post for a GIVEAWAY:

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.

As its Saturday, I have also updated my Paper crafting SALES PAGE with all the new releases, free stamp sets and sales going on this weekend.  Check it out, and while you are there, don’t forget to subscribe to my Crafty Sales Newsletter (it will pop up) , and you will receive an e-mail each Saturday morning.  I also update it all week long just in case you are into some retail therapy.

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 off 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).

I have an info page on MINI SLIMLINE CARDS HERE <<<<<CLICK.  I edit this page often as new updates and products become available.

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

This is also the challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.  Create a card with a matching envelope and come on over and play along.



In sorting my “bought but not used yet” bin, I discovered I bought this stamp/die set twice, so I’m having a giveaway.

      1. Sandi, you are SO talented! Your coloring skills are mad hot!
        I was an art major and still have trouble with the color wheel, lol! Thank you for giving us the chance to win your ‘extra’ set, I’m going to keep my fingers crossed 🤞

  1. Bonjour Sandi,
    This is a beautiful Autumn flower. I like the way you used your yellow card stock and then giving another dimension by adding the darker yellow, it brings out the curvature of the petals. I, also The green of the leaves is sober, leaving a bit of yellow, expresses autumn well. A BEAUTIFUL DAHLIA design.
    Merci Sandi,

  2. Hi Sandi
    Love this dahlia stamp and your coloring is gorgeous as always! Thanks so much for the chance to receive your extra one.

  3. Love how the yellow pops on the gray. I am new to stamping and have not invested in Coptic markers (yet🙂). Would colored pencils do the job if I use several layers?
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Love this card as these are my favorite flowers. I usually save all your emails to a personal folder but due to this email in searching for a place to leave a comment, I now know where I can go to see all your cards and videos. Yay!!!!! Keep up the good work. I learn a lot from you.

    1. Hi Cynthia, thank you on the card. Yes, my card PDF Gallery has almost all of my cards in it, unless they were just crazy easy and didn’t need one. It’s a great resource

  5. The pop of yellow is gorgeous. I really enjoy your mini slimline cards, have yet to make one though, but you are an inspiration.

  6. Hola, Sandi! Gosh, such a beautiful flower. I love big flowers like that, but I don’t do well with Copics. We don’t get along, we fight, we call each other ugly names. haha haha Your card is beautiful, Sandi, and I especially love how you included the envelope. 💜 Warm hugs!

    1. haha, I get that Marisela, I used to feel that way about them too, I even gave them a time out for a bit, haha. Colored pencils work on it too, LOL…and thank you on the card.
