2011 Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop

Welcome the reader to the 2011 Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop.
Did you have fun at Nichol's blog?
I've had the best time playing with my brand new Hero Arts stamps.  I love each and every one!
So I got a bit carried away, and made 4 cards!  Focus = COLOUR!
First, I used the CG425: Classic Fabric Design new to create a beautiful background for this simple birthday card.  I stamped it in Soft Blossom Shadow Ink onto Carnation layering paper, then added pink gems and silk ribbon.  The sentiment is from a new Cling set, CG277: Friends are Treasures.

My second card uses the same Fabric background stamp, but I added a sweet sentiment from CL490: Sending Smiles Messages (a new favourite), and a telephone image from CL502: Just Saying Hi.  Love it.  Soft Pool Ink on Pool Notecards is just delicious.  I inked the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink - a perfect match!
Thinking of You
 I LOVED making the background for this next card. All the stamps are from CL502: Just Saying Hi.  I used Grass Layering PaperGrass Ink and Kraft Paper.  Hero Arts Chalk inks stamp so beautifully onto their Layering Papers...

And finally, I used the sweet new Cling stamp Edged Fabric with Flowers (CG247).  I stamped it in chalk ink (Punch, Poppy, Cerulean and Grass) on white cardstock and die cut with my Nesties.  I inked the edges with matching distress ink for extra pop. The sentiment is from the Sending Smiles Messages set.

That's it!
Time to hop on...

Have FUN!!
And thank you Hero Arts. :)
