Hero Arts...Yet Again

Hi there everyone,

Another very simple card, also fashioned after a card I saw in the current Hero Arts catalogue.

The flower is stamped on various coloured card, cut and layered, with each petal being fingernail distressed and layered using very fine DSFT. The stem I made from a scrap bit of black card. Having the Cuttlebug layer underneath was really necessary to lift this card.

I nearly always tie bows, or knots where you see the ends, so I really like the look of this particular way of presenting the ribbon. I love different!!!

Rustic Flowers

Good afternoon all,

This card was fashioned after a card I saw when flipping through the current Hero Arts catalogue.

The flowers, come from one of the Hero Arts clear sets and is proving to be quite versatile. Add string, buttons and a strip of card which I ran through the corrugator and the top part of the card is done. I loaded the base card into the Cuttlebug so the entire front was embossed.

Simple, yet appealing.

A Hint of Spring

Hi there on this miserable rainy day!

Here is the same Hero Arts flower which I used yesterday. This time I stamped it up on a brayered piece of gloss card, cut and raised it. The centre of the flower has mini micro beads.

The Martha Stewart punch makes an excellent fence, don't you agree? I punched the fence from a scrap piece of a background I made some time ago, using salt, dye inks and gloss card. Pearls were added to give it some pizzazz.

The flower is backed by a Cuttlebugged piece of Bazzill which I have swiped with Brilliance Ink. To finish it off, I attached a few SU butterflies with little diamantes.

I know the quality of the picture leaves something to be desired. Please bear with me on this. I will endeavour to grab my camera as soon as I can. I figure I best give my poor old blog some love and attention, so scanning is better than nothing.

Black, White and a Touch of Red

Hello all,

Not the best of scans here. My daughter still has my camera, so I scanned it. Being dimensional it hasn't done so well, but hey! Better than nothing!

This is such a simple card but I like it!

The wording is by Stampin Up and the flower is by Hero Arts.
