Just Saying Hello

Hi! Today I have another card made with the new Caption Art digikit from Hero Arts. This card was inspired by the Preview of the kit - see it HERE and see how I was inspired! :) I added a sentiment from THIS set and some cute Studio Calico wood veneer birdies.
Great inspiration Hero Arts! :)
Have a good day, see you again soon.

Hello from a VERY wet Manchester. It's been raining heavily non stop for 48 hours and I'm tired of it. Winter has DEFINITELY set in. So I was very excited when my October Simon Says Stamp card kit turned up in the mail! Yay! It's a gorgeous kit... just look.
And as my favourite thing in the kit was the wooden 'Always', I got straight to work making a card with it. Everything bar the ribbon, twine and button is from the kit. Great huh!
I hope you have sunnier skies than me. Lucky I have Lily to play with :) Lots of snuggles and cardigans in this house. :)
Have a fun day.

Hi there!
Just popping in to share a card I have up on the Hero Arts blog today. It's a fun shaped card made using the new Caption Art digikit, combined with Halloween stamps from the 'A Night for Fright' digikit
You can get full instructions on how I made the card HERE.
Hope you have a fun day. It's pouring with rain here, so I think Lily and are will be stuck in all day. :( Hibernation weather.

Here's a card I made using some yummy new products from Hero Arts, Studio Calico and MME. I do so love new products! :)
I started with the cute doily sticker, then added the butterfly, button and sentiment which is from the Hero Arts Heyday Sentiments set, stamped with Wet Cement ink. Love this colour. The woodgrain paper is from THIS pad.
Simple symmetrical layout.
Have a great day.
P.S. For those of you who asked, Ombre means colour gradient - i.e from light to dark in the same colour.

Ombre Card Set

So it seems Ombre is on trend right now - I keep seeing the word cropping up in the crafting world. And I must confess, until about 2 months ago I didn't even know what it meant. :) Well, now I do, and just to make sure I never forget, Hero Arts released a new digikit today, simply called Ombre Papers. :)
I created a quick and simple card set with the kit. I took 4 colours of the paper, then layered the stamp from THIS kit on top. I altered the stamp to white (by changing the brightness to 100%) so that when printed on white cardstock, it looks like white stamping on coloured paper.  The sentiments are from THIS cute set, an oldie but a goodie. :)
Love this kit - the colours are really pretty and are perfect for a card set. :)
Have a great day, more to share soon.
Bye for now.
P.S. I've just added this card set plus my Paper Doll cards to my Folksy shop. Click on the links below to be taken to the shop.

Sweet New Baby

Hi. I've got another card to share made using Hero Arts new Paper Dolls Digikit.
I love this dress, it's so pretty! So I made it big - about 5 x 5", and printed it onto some Echo Park Sweet Day digi paper. The sentiment is from the Newborn Greetings kit and I added a plait of seam binding, and some sweet punched hearts.
And here's a close-up. That plaited belt was so much fun to make. :)
Back again soon. 
Bye for now.
