Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop

Welcome to the Hero Arts Hostess Hop, featuring fabulous stamps from the new 2015 release!

If you have been hopping along, you’ve just arrived from Sarah's blog! Isn't she talented?

Hero Arts will be awarding prizes from randomly drawn comments. For a chance to win, simply comment on ANY of the stops along the hop on ANY day, including each day’s starting post at the Hero Club Blog. The more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning! How cool is that?!

I created a couple of cards with the new Baby Animals Stamp and Cut set. I love, love, love the bunny in this set so I decided to make an early Easter card. 

I also needed a celebration type card, so I created this card. How cute are those baby animals combined with patterned balloons? 

My last card is a shaker card with a new background stamp called Triangle background. I embossed the stamp with Hero Arts white embossing powder and then added distress inks.

Here is a more detailed look of the shaker part of the card. :)

Birthdays are Awesome

I created this card for a special friend of mine. Her birthday is coming up soon and I want her to know just how awesome she is! :)

I love these succulent stamps from Simon Says Stamp. I colored them with Copic markers and added the patterned paper heart to the cup. Once the images were colored, it didn't take long to put the card together. I hope she likes it.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you have a wonderful week. Now I must go water my real succulents!

For the love of Hearts....

Hey there! I have a question for you. Who doesn't love hearts? haha! I was given this new Simon Says Stamp Sweetheart Tag die for Christmas and have been playing with it. I thought it went well with the XOXO patterned paper and the greeting from a Hero Arts set. By the way, have you checked out the SSS Flickr group yet? They post challenges every other week and you have a chance to win gift certificates to the SSS online store! Woohoo! What can be better than that? :)

Hope you're having a great weekend! See you next time.

I love Owls

Hello!  I've been busy playing with some of my new Simon Says Stamp dies. They were Christmas gifts and I just love them! The card below was made with the Decorated Branch die. Isn't this die adorable?  I added an older owl stamp because I just love owls. :)  I also used an older Hero Arts background stamp called Flower Dot Pattern with Green Hills mid-tone ink to give the card a little more interest. And of course I added Glossy accents to the owl's eyes, the hearts and the presents because what would a card be without Glossy accents?!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have time to create something amazing today! See you next time.
