Just a share........

Since this is Hero Arts 45th anniversary this year, I have a couple of cards using their products, old and new.

This first one features the beautiful Flower Garden fancy die, colored in citrus colors.  I've used this die a few times earlier this year, and it's a keeper!

supplies: white and black cardstock, Hero Arts Flower Garden fancy die, Tonic Nuvo Creative Pens markers in Fragrant OrangesCoral Reef, and Irish Clover, sentiment from Simon (retired) Happy Every Day clear set, Doodlebug Tiny Heart sprinkles

I just made a cut, then used my markers to color the flowers, butterflies, and leaves and added some little hearts to the centers of the largest flowers.  

I hope you'll pardon a little nostalgia for my second card.  I chose 2 of my favorite retired Hero Arts stamps to make it: Wallpaper Flowers woodblock and a sentiment from Made with Love, a clear stamp set.

supplies: white, Blue Violet, and Green Apple cardstock, vellum, retired 2009 Hero Arts Wallpaper Flower woodblock and sentiment from 2011 Made with Love clear stamps, Tonic Nuvo Parma Violets and Irish Clover markers, Doodlebug Tiny Hearts sprinkles

I've made innumerable cards with both of these stamps, but I don't think I've ever paired them.....Hero Arts designs are timeless!

Thanks for stopping by - hope your week is a productive one!

Love your cards, as always! I have to tell you that second one reminds me of my bedspread & canopy I had as a child. Wonderful flashback! Thanks for the memories.
