I am really loving feathers at the moment and those MFT dies were just a MUST for me! On this first simple card I die cut the 2 feathers in Hero Arts Layering paper & kraft paper.
The kraft paper version was spray misted to match the other color.  The sentiment is Hero Arts.

WPlus9 has a great feathers stamp set - Fanciful Feathers, which I really like. I've been using this set on a few birthday cards lately.  Love this simple look of the feathers stamped in shadow inks and a simple black saying.

Having the stamps out on my desk, I quickly made a few tags - nice to have on hand for a hostess gift or such.. I used a Hero Arts tag dies to cut out the tags.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very happy weekend!

Can you see...

... an Eye Test Birthday card - for the Hero Arts Stamp Your Story Inspiration Challenge.

My card was inspired by Vicki's repeated stamping on yesterday's card at the Hero Arts blog.  I really like how one of the birds are highlighted by a circular element. For my card I chose to highlight the birthday saying, by using also a circular element ;-)

I used Hero Arts stamps mainly from the Ghostly Greeting CL628 & the Frightful CL468 sets.  But also some older Hero Arts stamps.

The pop of orange color inside the card is picked up by the orange circular greeting ;) The Papers used are also from Hero Arts (the wonderful layering papers).

I hope you are able to see, that this was meant to be an eye test board - haha! ;)

Thanks for stopping by - have a great day/evening!

Hello Autumn...

... and hello bloggers ;)

I can't believe how fast this summer went! And next week it is official Autumn ;)
I love Autumn but I am always sad to see the Summer go. Fortunately it looks like the weather will be warm and lovely the next days...

I hope you've all had a wonderful summer with lots of sunshine and great adventures, maybe !!

It has been a looooong time since I have blogged. But today I felt like creating again and inspired by Autumn pins on Pinterest, here is one of the cards, I came up with.

I used the Keep Calm saying from a Hero Arts / Studio Calico set and some stamps from Ali Edwards
Autumn Afternoons. The inks are all Hero Arts Shadow inks (my faves!!).

Love those Autumn colors and the mixed fonts!

Have a great Sunday!
