. . . .makes me really happy! I know you feel the same way! There is such an excitement that comes with opening that box from Hero Arts that's left at the door! It doesn't hurt to have some days off from work at the same time! I really had a fun day today, inking, embossing, playing and smiling! Here are some of the cards I've made with my new goodies.
This one was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's peek video on the Hero blog yesterday. I love painting with inks and Perfect Pearls, and the Hand Drawn Flower is so fun to color!
Here is a close-up so you can see the pretty shimmer.
You all know this stamp well! The Fab Flourish, as I call it. I thought it would be cool to double stamp it for a shadow effect and I really like the way it turned out and I actually stamped the sentiment straight too! You just can't go wrong with a beautiful stamp like this, no matter what you do with it!
And this last card is a fun one. I used acetate, which I never do. Have always been afraid of it. Silly, I know. The Basic Grey, green dotted paper is stamped with my new Large Plaid Background stamp (LOVE!) using Lavender chalk ink and clear embossed. I stamped a small flower from the new Blossom Art clear set, in white StazOn, onto the acetate card. I added a couple of punched butterflies, also stamped with the plaid, to the outside of the card. Hope you understood all that! It was fun using the acetate and I hope to use it more often now.
One more thing before I sign off. Hero Arts is having a hostess blog hop next week! It will be all week long, Monday through Friday, with different hostesses each day! I'm so excited, and quite frankly, honored to be a part of this fun week! So keep your eye out starting Monday for a really fun week, full of inspiration from the hostesses, using new 2011 Hero Arts stamps! Woo hoo! :)
Thanks for stopping by! Find joy in the little things today! :)
