Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop

Welcome!  Thanks for coming by from the talented TRacey's Blog!  I'm SO excited to be one of the bloggers to showcase Hero Arts 2011 stamps in this blog hop. I want to thank Hero Arts for this great opportunity and generosity for making this fun event possible. Remember to leave comments at each blog along the way, for more chances to win a variety of the new 2011 stamps!

The first card was made with Dancing with the Flowers. Isn't this a SWEET stamp? I see so many possibilities in this stamp. It can be used for birthday invitations, Hello, Thank you, birthday......anything associated with happiness.
Here I used the Emboss Resist technique to achieve the colorful background (Distress inks: Broken China, Weathered Wood, Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw, Fired Brick, Bundled Sage, Peel Paint). This image depicts the joyful dance so vividly, so a colorful background seems to capture the essence. I used small fine markers to add the flower colors and grass details. The Hero Arts ribbons and Twinery's twines are perfect for the subtle finishes for this card.
hello
The second card is stamped with the gorgeous  Delicate Leaf Clusters.
I used three different kinds of leaves for this card and stamped CG125 Friends Definition for the subtle background. The sentiment was stamped on vellum. I also used the gold Stickles on the yellow leaves for the shine and interest. The sentiment is from the 2010 stamp CL380 Truly Appreciated. The following two cards are stamped in layers. No masking, embossing or any difficult techniques required. Always work with the lightest shades of colors first and work your way up to the darkest or brightest.
Appreciated
I used the same set  (Delicate Leaf Clusters) for this card and it gives a total different look!
Last card is a fun one! There are so many lovely lovely bike images from this CL481 Joy Ride.
The background was stamped in CG267 Scattered Dots first. Then I used the Hero Arts Vertical Cloud for the background and added the layers and then topped it off  with the bike image. The added Twinery on the bike gives the wow factor. Some more examples from the bike stamps, please see One Layer Cards and Banner Card
have a great day
 Now you should head over to the Arlene's Blog and see what our sweet Arlene has in store for us! NOTE: If you find a broken link, you can always go back to the Hero Arts blog for the master list of blog links: here. please email tami@heroarts.com and provide the blog address that has the bad link so we can fix it.

I LOVED your cards! I especially liked the first Delicate Leaf card that didn't require any fancy foot work. But if I could choose stamps, I'd really like the bicycles because I have so few stamps suitable for my son, a teenage boy. Thanks for sharing and including the tips.

Hello Virginia!

Love your cards here today! And so sweet of you to do a giveaway of your own! I DID become a follower, even though you striped it as a necessity, hi hi, but I had a fun look around and you make really nice cards, very original!! So, I'd love to join in for following and stay up to date to what more lovely inspiration you will bring us! My fave cards from today are two, the second and third! I love the shades of color you used in the cards and I'm a big fan of leaf stamps. These two are especially pretty! But love all your cards on the Hop! On top of my list, oeh... a lot, ha ha!!! I started February last year with card making and I never expected to love stamps as much as I do! Ha ha! On top of the list is 'Happy definition' and 'Timely bird' and 'Thank you for being my friend'! And more... hi hi! Now that I've seen your cards, 'Dancing with flowers' also has a chance to come on the wishlist! ;-)
Thanks for sharing this inspiration!

Hugs, Wendy
