I Heart New Stamps!

I made this thank you card for my sister because she bought me this Hero Arts bicycle stamp for Christmas. Love it! I used several different HA stamps on this along with distress inks and Copic markers. I added Glossy Accents to the bike seat and handles, the basket and the flowers. I also added Sakura sparkle pen to the bike gear, pedals and around the cut out cloud.

This card took a lot of time, but I really enjoyed making it. I can tell this is going to be one of my favorite stamps! Thanks for dropping by!

Five Trees.....

Just posting another Christmas card I made a week or so ago.  I love adding a touch of pink with the traditional red and green colors. I used this hanging tree stamp from Hero Arts and colored it with Copics. Added a few gems and the main part of the card was done.

Three more days until Christmas! Are you ready? I think I'm finally done with the shopping part. :)  Now I just have to make food.

Two Reindeer and a Tree....

Remember that movie, Three Men and a Baby?  Well this card is titled, Two Reindeer and a Tree.  :) 
Just another Christmas card that I made. Not really much to say about it. I combined some of this year's  Hero Arts stamps with the tree from one of last year's sets.

Hope your week is off to a good start!  Christmas is on it's way!  Do you have your stockings hung by the chimney with care?  :)

Christmas is coming soon....

....and I just now finished up some cards.  I'll try to post them this week and next.  I've been so busy that I haven't had much time for blogging. I've been making some gifts for family and it's been taking most of my free time...along with Christmas shopping.  :)  Anyway, here's a card I made with one of my favorite Hero Arts stamps - Starry Night. I used the sparkling embossing powder to give it some shine.

Hope you're all staying warm. It's snowing and very cold here today.  Thanks for stopping by! :)

Still making Christmas cards...

I'm still working on my Christmas cards as well as making some other gifts.  I'm going to keep this short because I really need to get these cards done and mailed. :)  Here's another card I made using the Hero Arts reindeer stamp. I love that little guy. I also used more Basic Grey paper and some older HA stamps for the snowflakes, trees and greeting.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you're almost done with your Christmas cards too!  :)
