Hi! Welcome to the 3rd day of the 2013 Hero Hostess Blog Hop
! We alumnae Hostesses are so excited to be participating again this year to show you all some of our favorite new 2013 Hero Arts stamps; I am so honored to be among this wonderful group of creative ladies. The Hop began on Monday, and will continue all the way through until Friday, with 5 or 6 blogs each day for you to visit. You should have arrived here today from The Hero Arts Club Blog
; I'm your first stop.
I made 4 cards for you today, so let's get started.
My first card uses my favorite flower stamp from the 2013 catalog: Tall Flowers
. Here I stamped only the top part of the stamp above and below the sentiment from Friends are Treasures
, using alcohol markers to color the flowers. Then I just added some turquoise and golden gems in a few of the centers.
My next stamp is called Tweed Pattern
. I white embossed it on white cardstock, then used some distress markers to color in my rows. I added a sentiment from Live Life
stamped in broken china distress ink, and added this flower made from Spellbinders Rose Creations dies, colored with distress stains.
This is a beautiful flourish, don't you agree? It's called Leafy Vines
. I stamped it with VersaMark on an ivory cardstock, embossed it in clear and then sponged on peacock feathers and peeled paint distress inks. Then I overstamped with my old favorite Music Background
. I didn't want to cover up anything on this lovely design, so I didn't add a sentiment; only a punched butterfly with some pearls.
My last card uses the clear set called Love Jar
and I used just the branch, one of the hearts, and part of the sentiment to make this one. I stamped the open heart on various red printed papers, then cut them out and popped them above my twine hanging from the branch.
