Happy Birthday

Hi!  Just sharing a birthday card I made with the Hero Arts Three Flowers stamp set.  I absolutely love this set.  The large flower is perfect for paper piecing!

My grandma asked me to make a card for her to give one of her friends who is celebrating her 90th birthday this weekend.  And here's what I came up with...

I also used the Hero Arts Dots & Flowers Background stamp.  I partially inked it with some Antique Linen Distress Ink for a subtle background.

Looking forward to the season premiere of Grey's Anatomy tonight!  Love that show!  This is one of the only shows that I have to watch each week.  Are you a Grey's fan?

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs! :)

Clean & Simple

Hi there!  Today I wanted to share a few cards I made for the current Caardvarks challenge sponsored by Hero Arts.  The challenge this time is to create clean & simple cards.  All of these cards were made with the Joy to All and the Swirl Christmas stamp sets. 

Have a great day!

Hugs! :)

Trick or Treat

Happy Monday!  This week on the Hero Arts Blog Jennifer is doing a swap with Creative Imaginations, where she is showcasing some projects featuring Luminarte's Twinkling H20's and Hero Arts stamps. 

I usually don't do much coloring of my stamped images...mainly because I'm not very good at it...but these paints are super easy to use.  They really do add fun touch to any card!

For this card I simply used them like paints.  I first embossed the pumpkin with black embossing powder...this made it very easy to stay in the lines.  Then I just used a paint brush to color in the pumpkin and also to create the green piece. 

And here you can really see the shimmer it adds...

Have a great day! :)

Butterfly Mobile

Hi there!  Today I have a little project to share that I've been trying to get finished for the past month.  But it really only took a couple hours to do once it was all said and done. ;) 

I've seen so many cute handmade mobiles and wanted to make one to hang in my daughter's room.  I used the Cuttlebug Butterfly Die on some papers from the DCWV Sweet paper stack.  Then I just sewed them on a piece of white string, hung from a circle wire and that's it.  Super easy!

I had some buttons and smaller butterflies attached in between the larger butterflies, but decided to take them off and just leave it very clean and simple.  And I'm glad I looks much better this way. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great one! :)
