Swirls again

I am back today with another card using the swirl stamp set (Collage Friend - new for 2013) from Hero Arts. 
The brown ink used here is Colorbox Chestnut Roan - the butterfly and the flower was stamped on paper which was spray misted (October Afternoon sprinklers) before stamping - to match the card base.

And some details... I really like the friend text stamp from the same set.
This font type would work great with a chalkboard technique too.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!

Tuesday Trigger


This is my first time playing along with Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger :)
I love the feel of this photo with the lovely vintage cutlery - isn't it wonderful!?

And here is my inspirational card.  The fork & spoon is an older stamp from Hero Arts (I love this stamp and use it often for placecards and such) - it is stamped in StazON Platinum ink.

The papers are Bazzill Cardshoppe &  Hero Arts Layering paper (for the card base). I used the swirl from the Hero Arts Friend Collage cling set (new for 2013). 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

From Owl of Us

I was inspired by Shari's fun folded card at the hero arts blog, so I had to give it a try.
I didn't plan it too well, though, so I had to make different kind of closing mechanism (the banner)...

Here is my attempt ;) I used 3 of the new Owls (they are so cute, aren't they!!) and some yummy shadow inks. The sentiment is from the "Howl are you" set, too.

To keep the card closed I stapled the banned across the picket fence ( a die from MFT).

Thanks for stopping by today!

A Love card

I made this simple stamped love/valentines card using the sweet Silhouettes stamp set and the huge XO from the XO clear set from Hero Arts.

I love the cirles with the tiny text in this set. So cute..

Other supplies:
Hero Arts shadow inks: Pale tomato, red royal, charcoal.
Hero arts Layering paper, charcoal + bazzill smoothies.
