I ♡ Hero Arts: Day 5

Happy Friday!  Today I have my last card to share this week featuring some new Hero Arts Stamps.

The You and Me clear stamp set is so fun to play with!  All the different words and sizes of ampersands make for endless combinations of sentiments. 




I had this card done and I just felt like it was missing something.  I let it sit for a few days and then came back to it.  I ended up rounding the top right corner and that's all it needed!  It's the little finishing details that can really make a card feel complete.

And now...how about one more giveaway before we head into the weekend!  One winner will receive the Hero Arts All The Time clear stamp set.




Just leave a comment on this post by Midnight CST on Sunday, January 22nd to be entered to win.  And once again, I am sorry that some of you are having troubles leaving comments.  I really wish I knew how to fix this!  So if you want to be entered in the giveaway just email me at kellyras23@hotmail.com.

Thank you so much stopping by!  Have a great weekend! :)

Love the colours!! Such a cool embossed image it creates with the ampersand. :) Thanks for the inspiration.

BeverlyBL said...

I really enjoy your work. Like this card and the Hello(Thanks) Flower card. I'd been looking at that stamp. Also, had to copy the Simple Card Set you did for Hero with the Say It All clear stamp set and La Lettre. So simple. I made the set and didn't attach the flags so that the recepient could pick the appropriate sentiment. You used the Indie Bloom paper pad for yours. Thanks for all your beautiful creations.

Michelle said...

Kelly this is just FABULOUS!!! I truly love that rounded corner and I too think it's the littlest details that make the biggest impact. The colors of this card are just dreamy! :)

Kelly Booth said...

LOOOOOOOOOOVE this!!!
