Silhouette stamps

Hero Arts brought out lots of silhouette stamps for 2011, and I was lucky enough to get 3 of them.  I've been playing with them the last few days, and wanted to share 3 different ones, all stamped on designer papers. 


This first one is called Musical Walk.  I chose the paper it was stamped on because the pinwheels just go with the overall feel of the image.

supplies: F5468 Musical Walk, CL497 Find Joy, versafine onyx black ink,  Cosmo Cricket Togetherness mini deck, October Afternoon The Thrift Shop 8X8 paperpad, yellow card, aqua ribbon, tiny yellow buttons


Next is a cling entitled Dancing with Flowers.  I used what I think of as "Easter" colors, papers from Basic Grey's kioshi papers, and one of Donna's dyed seam binding ribbons.

supplies: CG266 Dancing with Flowers, CL498 Live Life, versafine onyx black ink, white card base, Basic Grey kioshi papers, hand-dyed seam binding, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, purple gems, colored pencils


And finally, this one is called Let's Garden Sihouette.  It was stamped over a cloud paper, framed in yellow, then in a nestie label and finally everything centered on a white card stamped with the new Envelope Pattern.

supplies: F5407 Let's Garden Silhuette, CL267 Card Messages, S5507 Envelope Pattern, versafine onyx black ink, tumbled glass distress ink, white card, my little shoebox "Sky's the Limit - Follow the Cloud" designer paper, nestabilities labels one, Hero Arts CH206 Sunshine Print Flowers, tiny aqua button

  8. Lin,your three cards are gorgeous. You are blessed with a wonderful talent. My favorite is the Musical Walk with the pretty ribbons. The new silhouette stamps show up so well on the cards. I think the nesties are the perfect background.

  9. I forgot to say how lovely your new Spring Banner is. I'm fascinated at how the tree and little birdies just stay in the same place.
