Olympics of Stamping Challenge

I created this card for the Olympics of Stamping challenge on the MoxieFab blog.  I stamped the whole card with the Hero Arts Cling Flourish background stamp. I also used the Hero Arts winged butterfly stamp and stamped it on Basic Grey paper, then used Glossy Accents to make it shine. The butterfly is popped up from the card to give it some dimension.

supplies: Basic Grey paper, Me & My Big Ideas paper, Hero Arts stamps, Inkessentials Glossy Accents, EK Success punch

Snow Fun!

Another wedding card....

Ok, so I was over ambitious and made two wedding cards for the Caardvarks challenge.  I love the weekends!  More time for cardmaking!  Black and white are very popular wedding colors right now in this part of the US, so I made my card using those colors.  It's hard to see, you have to look closely, but I embossed the flower in white on white paper.  The white piece at the bottom is also embossed in white. I used all Hero Arts stamps and I used black Zing embossing powder on the black card.  Thanks for looking!

supplies: All Hero Arts stamps, American Crafts ribbon, Basic Grey paper, Paper Studio pearls, Hero Arts button, Zing embossing powder.

Red Poppies....

I made this card for my sweet friend Virginia's challenge. There are already so many amazing entries and I wanted to play along too.  I stamped the Hero Arts poppy cling stamp with versa mark on Basic Grey red paper and then embossed with white. I then shaded the flowers with colored pencils. I also tried to add some shading on the white.

supplies: BG paper, Hero Arts stamps, maya ribbon, Fiskar punch, Prisma pencils
