Stamp Your Story Fun!

Hey there!

I've been playing with some of the new, Stamp Your Story stamps from Hero Arts and having lots of fun!

First up, a card with lots of summery colors and popped up little flowers.

 
Those circles were stamped with lots of different Hero Arts Shadow and Dye Inks. It's one of the fun, artsy stamps which comes in the new, Brush Strokes cling set. I white embossed the small flower several times, cut them out and popped them up for some dimension. That little flower stamp is from another new cling set called, Remember, and that fabulous sentiment is from the same set - LOVE the font!

Next up is a card with a background created by repeatedly stamping one of the Brush Strokes stamps in Bundled Sage Distress Ink. 


Then I did a little masking with the tulip stamp from Hero Arts' Antique Flower Engravings set and colored them with Copics. The "BE" is from their Alphabet Uppercase die set and the rest of the sentiment is from the new, My Words set.

And my last card uses a new woodblock stamp. It's called, Three Brushed Flowers. 

I know, I know - same pink and green color combo - can't help it - I love them together! Lots of Distress Inks and Stains on the background with some script stamping too. The main image was stamped using Distress Markers and a spritz of water before stamping, and another sentiment from the My Words set.

I sure am enjoying this new stamp release - tons of possibilities!

I really appreciate your visit - so glad you stopped by! Hope everyone has a great week! :)

Wow! Super artistic cards, Barb! Love the first colourful card and the embossed flower cuts looks like canvas. Very well executed, Barb!

Oh Barb! You really rocked all three cards! (I definitely would ave spent a lot of money on this HA release if I was still living in the US! I'll just have to wait a while for when Hubby goes there for work again, hopefully soon)! Love that background on the Tulip card!
