Happy Trees!

Time to think leaves!  I used a Hero Arts tree stamp, one I had used for a Christmas card last year, that I embossed with copper embossing powder, inked with Ranger distress ink, sprinkled on some water and added green leaves using a small leaf punch, added some words and a word banner.  Love the way it came out. Check out the post on Splitcoaststampers.com and on Flickr, too.  Don’t you love it?!Image

A Trio of Flowers!

I was inspired by the beautiful flowers and landscape arrangements at the Providence Flower show on Friday. So nice to see flowers in bloom, ponds and flowering trees. I created a card using a newly purchased Hero Arts flower stamp, embossed stamped background and a die cut vine tendril.  Think warm sunshine!Image

Sunny Yellow Flowers

Time to think sunny yellow!  I created this card last year and wanted to share it as yellow is a great color during the gray February days and snow on the ground. I used an embossed background stamp, cut out frame and two die cut flowers from Memory Box. I was inspired by a post on Pinterest and made some changes-of course.  Use my card to get you started! Happy stamping!


Happy Daisy Hello Card

This is an easy card as I used the Hero Arts daisy stamp which I have had for a long time.  I think I even got it on sale some place a long time ago.  I colored the stamp with brush tipped markers and stamped it on a piece of lined loose leaf paper.Image I printed the hello banner on the computer and cut it to size. I also colored the sides of the paper with Ranger Ink in a blue/gray color, tied a simple cord on the top and it is ready to send to a friend.

Happy Everything!!

Today was a perfect day to play with paper and ink.  I have had this Hero Arts stamp Happy Everything for a long time and never found a project or technique to use with it.  I white embossed the stamped image, heat set it and then inked the background in blues and greens.  I cut out the word banner and attached it over the stamped image.  I liked the way it came out and it s happy everything type of card.  Hope to enter it in the current Hero Arts contest.  Happy Stamping!
