Wow Wednesday

Here's this weeks group of wonderful eye candy! Enjoy!

How pretty is this pink card here by Susanne!

I love Karen's cards. On the one here she stamped onto ribbon and it looks amazing. The grey card here is perfect with the pops of white and pink.

Laurie followed a sketch and came up with two very similar designs here. Which one is your fave?

The vellum flower here by Jennifer is so delicate in all its wonderful layers.

Two beautiful cards here by Windy using paper roses.

Emily made two Valentine's Day cards here.  Love the clean designs of these!

I hope these help you get your creative juices flowing!

Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop

Welcome to the last stop on day three of the Hero Hostess 2011 Blog Hop!  There's still two more days of fabulous projects coming your way using 2011 Hero Arts Stamps.

You  should have arrived here from Arlene McClung's Blog. If not, you can start at the beginning of the hop at The Hero Arts Blog where you'll find a list of participants.  If you find a broken link, you can always go back to the Hero Arts blog for the master list of blog links HERE.  Also, please email and provide the blog address that has the bad link so we can fix it. Thanks!

My first card uses an image from the Delicate Leaf Clusters set. I love all things leafy so I was excited to play with these stamps.
I stamped the Designer Woodgrain with green chalk ink on some light green cardstock and stamped the leaf image ontop with Versamark and clear embossed it. I coloured over this with Pine Needles Distress Ink, sprayed it with Perfect Pearls, ran it through the Cuttlebug and pierced holes around the edge. I adhered this to some distressed text paper and added my embellishments.

For my next project I made a set of cards using the Large Fabric Design stamp.
I love how this stamp can make a quick and elegant card, good for any occasion.
For the backgrounds I stamped the image with Versamark on white cardstock and coloured over it with Pan Pastels, a chalk-like pastel in a pan. This technique gives a beautiful two-tone look.
The dragonflies are from the Hero Arts Digi Kit Winged Friends. I printed them out onto transparency sheets and added glitter glue to them for some subtle sparkle.

My last card is using an image from the Dots and Flowers set.  How fun are all these dots!
I coloured some glossy cardstock with Alcohol Inks and embossed the image in white ontop. I ran some white cardstock through the Cuttlebug for the card shape and embossing and finished with my sentiment and embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you've enjoyed all the gorgeous projects made by my fellow Hostesses and that it inspires you to get inky with some new Hero Arts stamps.

Don't forget to leave a comment at each blog for a chance to win some fun prizes and come back tomorrow HERE to view some more crafty goodness, starting with the amazing Linda aka Oz.

Happy stamping!

Tiffany Doodles Sketch Challenge

It's time for another Tiffany Doodles challenge and this months challenge is a sketch.

Here's my take on it.

I used the Flower Vine and Stripes papers from the new Strawberry Hearts  digi paper pack. I love the colour combos in this set! The flowers I used are called  Daisy Bloom and I added colour to each with Distress Inks and used clear micro beads for the flower centres.

Make sure to stop by Tiffany's new storefront here. Shopping has never been easier. Also you have until the end of the month to submit your project for the Sketch Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hero Arts Challenge

This is the second post today, please scroll down for Wow Wednesday links.

There's a new challenge up at Hero Arts with the theme being Inspired by the 2011 Catalog and card insides and the featured technique is masking.

For my first submission I cracked open my new stamp set Delicate Leaf Clusters and inked away. I just love the leafy goodness of this set!

I used some Distress Inks to colour my paper and stamped the Leaf Cluster in white pigment ink and then stamped ontop and slightly off-set with copper pigment ink.

I also inked up the inside a bit

I masked off the inside, leaving an edge open where I double stamped the Plaid Pattern from the card front and added another image from the Leaf Cluster set.

Thanks for stopping by!
