Online Card Class Stenciled and SSS Challenge

I've been taking the Online Card Class: Stenciled. I made this card based on a similar design from Kristina Werner. She colored in the stars, but I used distress inks instead. I'm still loving these birds from the new Hero Arts Missing You stamp set. They make me laugh. :)  I'm going to submit this for the new Simon Says Work It Wednesday challenge.

I'm starting to work on my Valentine's Day cards. How about you? Do you make Valentine's Day cards? Thanks for dropping by. :)

2014 Hero Hostess Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Hero Arts Hostess Hop, featuring fabulous stamps from the new 2014 release!

If you’ve been following along, you’ve just arrived from the super talented Sarah Moerman's blog!

Don't forget that 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?!!

For my first card, I used several stamps set from the 2014 catalog, including: Tag Collage, Missing You, and Dauber Bunch. I created my own greeting by pairing greetings from different sets. I absolutely love the sheep in the Missing You set. :) This looks like a tag, but it's actually a tag card.

On my second card, I used the Missing You set again. Aren't those birds too cute? This set is a must have! I added some shimmer to them using a Wink of Stella Glitter brush and also added Glossy Accents to their beaks and eyes. I used a greeting from the For Your Kindness set.

And last, but not least, I wanted to create a very simple card. On this card, I used the Dauber Bunch set and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I also used the banner and greetings from the For Your Kindness set.

New Hero Arts Stamps!!

Woohoo, the new Hero Arts stamps are out! I love this Operation Write Home Missing You set! My brother-in-law's Dad turned 90 this month, so I made him this card. He likes birds. :)

I colored the birds with my Copic makers and added a little Glossy Accents to their eyes and beaks (hard to tell in the photo though).  This is such a fun stamp set and can be used for any age!

Hope you're having a great week! We've had a blizzard this week with record low temps so most things were shut down for a few days. I'm glad the temps have risen and we can leave the house again. :)

Happy 2014 and a Thank You

Happy 2014! Wow, 2013 seemed to fly by, didn't it? Anyway, I made this card for my parents to give to a friend of theirs. I used my Silhouette to cut out the Thank You file with the border. I also used black washi tape for the stars. I put down several stripes of the washi tape on white cardstock and then die cut the stars with my Big Shot machine.

I hope 2014 is off to a fabulous start for you! :)
