90-Minute Scramble!

Happy Saturday!

Last night, there was another 90-minute scramble over on the Hero Arts Flickr sight. Linda was the hostess with the mostest and she had such a fun theme! Many of the ladies who participated got into their jammies and stamped away until the wee hours of the morning! The theme was "ring out the old year, ring in the new." She wanted us to use one Hero arts stamp from 2010 and one from 2011. I used the beautiful Hydrangea stamp from last year and the new Magical Background stamp. (it was released in 2010 but has a 2011 date on the tag.) These are two of my very favorites! Here's the card I came up with.



I kept it very simple, stamping the background with Hero Arts Soft Sand Shadow Ink, then the Hydrangea over that with a bit darker brown, Hero Arts Soft Brown Shadow Ink. I colored the flower with Copics, added the white twine, Hero Hues pearls and Hero Arts sentiment.

Check out all the other beautiful entries here. I love these challenges! If you have not joined in on the fun yet, you really should! They are a blast! The next challenge is scheduled for the week of January 17th. I'm hosting this next one! The exact day and time are still to be determined and will be soon. I sure hope you can join in!

Thank you, Linda for such a fun night! The theme was so clever and you were the perfect hostess!

Please remember starting Monday, the Hero Hostesses are sharing their joy of stamping with a blog hop! Start at the Hero Arts blog, and hop along to see some wonderful inspiration! It lasts all week with 4 or 5 hostesses each day! Believe me, you won't want to miss one single day! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

What a beautiful card Barb, it is a classic and a card that will never date.
I must look into the next 90min scramble, as long as it is the right time for us down here, are there any rules other than HERO ARTS STAMP?

So pretty Barb! Love your hydrangea. I have that background stamp and haven't used it yet. Now you've inspired me to break it open! I wish I could've played along, but I was too tired and in bed before midnight.

Tiffany said...

Beautiful how you paired the hydrangea with this BG stamp! Love the slightly distressed edges!
