Playing Around

A couple cards I made with Hero Arts stamps. There's no challenge this week at Hero Arts because of Thanksgiving so it gives me a chance to play a bit. This card would be good for an Anniversary, Wedding or for Valentine's Day. A red rose means love, right!

The rose was black embossed and coloured with Twinkling H2O's so there's a soft shimmer. The vase is a stamp from an Asian set and is black embossed and covered with Diamond Glaze, it's very shiny! I used a couple of border punches and did some ribbon binding on the side. It was really hard to get a decent photo of this card. No sunny skies here and the shine from the Diamond Glaze didn't help matters. Sorry.
 I was trying to come up with a design for a Christmas card that would be easy to mass produce. This is a hybrid card with the background being from a Hero Arts digi kit. I printed it in sepia and distressed the edges. Simple stamping and layering for the rest of the card with some more distressing. Not too sure about the distressing, seems like a bit too much on a holiday card!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Both cards are wonderful Susan!! Kinda nice to have a break from the challenges and "just" create for pure fun :)

  2. I love your abundant ideas and creativity! I like the Asian Frame with the ribbons and the digit one is fantastic!

  3. Virginia said it perfectly....your creativity always amazes me.

  4. I agree with Virginia and Kathy! Your ideas are fab! Love both of your cards!


  5. I love your distressing! I really love everything you are creating with the digi kits!
