Flowers, Flower Pots and Spring....

I made this card because I'm so ready to see spring and summer flowers. :)  I love this new stamp/die cut set from Hero Arts.  The top of the flower pot has a fuzzy texture and was from a Starbucks gift card holder. I recycled it for my card.  I used Jennifer McGuire's technique of stamping the same type of flower in green ink and then cutting out the petals to be used as leaves. And I used the Hero Arts Classic Fabric stamp with Hero Arts Latte chalk ink to stamp the flower pot.

Don't these flowers make you think of spring?  :)

supplies: Hero Arts stamps, pearls, die cuts, Basic Grey paper

I Love Sunshine!

I made this card because I absolutely LOVE sunshine. :)  I used my Silhouette to die cut the sun and cloud shapes. I was so happy to see it was picked as one of the Fab Five winners for the Hero Arts February contest. Yay! Happy day for me.  :)

Hope your day has been happy too! 

Supplies: Authentique paper, TH Distress Inks, Hero Arts stamps, Silhouette SD, Copic marker (for beak), black gems

Sending Hugs for Valentine's Day

I created this card for my niece for Valentine's Day. I was playing with some older stamps and the greeting is from a new Hero Arts stamp set, called XO. It's a great greeting set! I added Glossy Accents to the hearts to give them some dimension.

Hope your week is going well. :)

February Birthdays....

Hello! We're back from Florida and we miss it already! :)  Although this winter has been very mild here, we still would rather be in the 70 and 80 degrees in Florida. So nice!  We also loved not going to work. ha!  Anyway, we're back and I'm back to crafting. I made this card for my nephew's birthday. We have lots of February birthdays.

I used the stars from an older Hero Arts set and the new newspaper owl stamp. Love him. :)

Hope you're having a great week and you have a wonderful weekend! Superbowl is in Indianapolis this year so traffic has been crazy around here this week!
