I participated in the Hero Arts Scramble this weekend over on the Flickr group. My friend Cheiron was hosting, and my friend Glenda and I met up in a google+ hangout to stamp together. We were given the challenge to create a card for OURSELVES using all of our favorite items. A card just for lil ol me!? ok!!! Teal, teal, and a lil more teal… kraft…. a lil bling, letters and fonts are a love of mine. I love office supplies, hence the grid and punched border I used. AND the best of all “Saturday” my favorite day of the week!!! (see below for a full listing of the supplies I used)
Thank you for hosting Cheiron!
In honor of tomorrow being friday, I thought I would post this card!
I played with some creative girls in a google+ hangout last friday, and created this card. I had been all over MA and NH so was a bit tired, aka lazy- and only wanted to use what was within arms reach. Paper and embellishments scraps worked well here! After I saw my friend Cheiron’s card with the “weekdays” Hero Arts set, I was like “great i’ll never top that” – but i’m happy with what i ended up with.
I have had good intentions of trying out some of Hero Art’s Challenges for awhile now, but it just hasn’t happened.. this month though i have done a few cards!!
Here is the first one I designed for the Sunshine and Showers challenge
On this card I used
Hooray Hello! I had fun using some new Hero Arts/ Studio Calico stamps on this card. I was challenged to use the pink Bo Bunny patterned paper, and the green/blue washi tape. I took me a few tries in figuring out colors that would coordinate with them, since I was having a hard time seeing them together in the first place. I love this new grid pattern background stamp from Hero Arts/Studio Calico, and stamped on a “eggshell” colored Memory Box notecard with Pool shadow ink , it looks a lot like the vintage graph paper you can find. I also tossed on some Hero Arts Art Flowers and Mixed Accents. I used my quickie glue pen and ultrafine crystal glitter to bling up the butterflies. I was happy with how it turned out, and I know the friend I sent it to enjoyed it as well.
