A Blog Named Hero

OK, so it's no secret that I am a HUGE Hero Arts fan, so when I heard about a new challenge blog called A Blog Named Hero, I was instantly intrigued.  
Two fellow Hero Arts lovers have set up this blog to host contests with a focus on using Hero Arts stamps and products. Yay!  So this week they have a number of guest designers (me included) sharing cards made with their favourite Hero Arts stamp.  I found it VERY hard to choose just ONE favourite, but eventually settled for one of the cutest stamps EVER... and I'm not the only one who chose this particular stamp :)  
Here is a peek at my card - visit the blog to see it in full. :)
See you again tomorrow...

Hello.  Here's a card made using the new High Profile digikit from Hero Arts.  Some simple stamp layering, and minimal embellishments on this one... LOTS of fun digikits used here. :)  I love the background paper - it's from the Respondez Vous digikit.
Final thing for today - a few people are commenting and asking for tutorials - just look at my pages at the top of my blog under the picture - I have FAQs and tutorials there, and I've recently done a whole week of digi tutorials.  the Day 1 post is HERE. Hope this helps.
Bye for now.

Just Because...

Hello, and a very happy Tuesday to you.  I have spent all day so far in the garden - we're having an out of season heat wave and it's GORGEOUS out there... so this post will be short!  Me and my girl need the vitamin D. :)
Today is digikit release day, and Hero Arts have 3 new kits: The Patterns - Blossoms, The Patterns - Script and High Profile
Today's ard features The Patterns - Blossoms which I used to create the background.  I printed the Earth paper straight onto kraft. It looks so pretty. :)  The main stamp is from the Just Because stamp set, stamped on some yummy MME paper.
Have a lovely day. x

Welcome Baby

It's been ages since I made a baby card, but as soon as I saw this cute chick from Pink Petticoat, I knew it was what I wanted to make.  The chick is actually from an Easter collection called Fluffy Little Chicks, and it's GORGEOUS.  Unfortunately, I don't make Easter cards, but I decided to buy it and use the images for other occasions.  They are just too cute. :)
A very CAS card - a bit of paper piecing, Stickles and stitching and it was done.  Oh, and the sentiment is from THIS fun digikit.
If you've not yet checked out Liz's amazing designs over at Pink Petticoat, I highly recommend you do.  Her sweet stamps and papers are all adorable and really good prices too.  And Liz is lovely too.  AND it's a UK company which I love (obviously I adore all the amazing US crafting companies, but it's so good to support more local businesses too).
Back tomorrow - it's Hero Arts digikit release day. Yay!

Rainbow Cards

Today I have 2 cards to share, both made using coloured papers from Hero Arts The Patterns - Brocade digikit, and a sentiment from their Good Friends stamp set.
First up, these fun butterflies. I printed the papers, then stamped the sweet butterfly from Butterflies and Wildflowers over the top.  The lovely lacy paper is from My Mind's Eye's Howdy Doody 6 x 6 pad
This card features flowers from the Jungle Flowers Digikit and sweet patterned kraft paper from MME's Kraft Fun Day pad.
Simple but happy cards. :)  And as they featured rainbows, I am entering them in the Paper Crafts rainbow challenge for March.
Have a great weekend. the weather here is FAB at the moment, so we're going to be in the garden. Yay!
