Hero Arts Color Layering Blog Hop with Giveaway

Hello, and welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts Color Layering Blog Hop.
Hero Arts have just released a new catalog with a really fun concept. They asked each of the Hero artists to choose their favourite 4 inks to go with a specific stamp set, and then they created fun 4 ink cube packs with the resulting recommendations. 
Here's the stamp set I worked with, and the ink pack I designed - Lucy's Floral Favorites... perfect for Spring and Summer cards. The ink and stamp packs are available separately or as a bundle.
And here's the card I created with it...

I love these colours and reach for them regularly... so very pretty.

Tonight it's release night for the June Clearly Besotted Stamps goodies, and today I have my final teaser card for you. It features cute stamps from Sweet Treats, an adorable and yummy A6 stamp set.

I stamped and watercolored my animals, adding Star Dust Stickles for some sparkle. I added a stamped sentiment from Thank You, along with the You Word die which I die cut from black card and coated with more Stickles.

Please Forgive Me

Hello again, today I have my second Clearly Besotted Stamps teaser card to share with you, and today's card features Forgive Me, a mini set with gorgeous florals and pretty mixed font sentiments.
Please Forgive Me by Lucy Abrams
I stamped my flowers on some rustic card in Hero Arts' Fresh Peach and Soft Cantaloupe Ink, adding the dots with Light Ruby to Royal Red Ombre ink. I stamped the sentiment, then added Wink of Stella details and some sequins from my Pink Lemonade Shaker Selection.

Birthday Wishes

Just popping in to share a sunny and happy birthday card created with some fun Simon Says Stamp products.
Birthday Wishes by Lucy Abrams
To make the card, I die cut three Stitched Daisies from some MFT patterned paper and adhered them together, adding a Sparklet to the centre for a bit of bling. Next, I trimmed down some more MFT paper (love this pad), and stitched some coordinating polka dot strips  down the side. I die cut the Painted Happy Birthday from black card, adhered it to the card and stamped a sentiment from Best Hugs below. Finally, I added the flower.

Thanks for visiting - have a great Monday.
