Hero Arts

Hi...I have been known to collect stamps over the years...always with great intention of learning new techniques and doing some wonderful things with my stamps!  I think I've learned and then quickly forgotten a ton of new techniques over the years, so the new strategy is just to stamp...nothing fancy, just stamp.

So in doing that, I'm joining in with Hero Arts Blog April Contest.  My card is based on one of the sketches.


The background is different embossing folders.  I diecut Nestabilities Label 8 tag, stamped the flowers with VersaMark, then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I painted the entire tag with Twinkling H2O's (wild plum).  The sentiment is stamped on vellum in black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The stamp set is With Sympathy from Hero Arts.

I'll end with just a couple of fun links (well for me anyway!)  The card I entered into the Crafty Steals contest last week didn't win, but did get a nice shout out on their blog Crafty Steals Blog.  And my card from Paper Crafts 365 Cards, was featured on their blog yesterday...Paper Crafts Connection Blog

Thanks for dropping by today and for indulging my sharing...Ivanka

Gorgeous Ivanka, love the different embossed strip backgrounds and the lovely marble effect you got with the H2O's.
