More fun with the Silhouette…

Here’s a happy birthday card I threw together with my Silhouette die-cut machine. I LOVE that thing (totally worth every penny I spent!). The possibilities are really endless with what you can create. In this example… the frame, dotted line, and sentiment were cut out with it and I added Prima flower accents, a rub-on, and some Hero Arts pearls to embellish. The embossed background texture is Swiss dots (Cuttlebug). TFL! 🙂


Hero Arts blog hop just around the corner!

Can’t wait to share some of the wonderful new catalog goodness with you! Hop on by Dec 18th for some sample projects. You’re going to love these images!

In the meantime, I’ll be posting some fun new cards over the coming days. (Have saved up dozens of cards to share with you from the last couple of months.)


Spooky fun!

Just thought I’d share a card that is featured on the Hero Arts blog this week. I absolutely adore these new Halloween images. How cute is that Frankenstein?!?! You can get tips & tricks for making this card and several others over on the Hero Arts blog HERE.

There were also several other fabulous color schemes to inspire on the blog this week. Be sure to check them out & thanks for dropping by!


A cherry happy birthday to you!

Based on all the sneak peeks I’ve seen of the summer CHA show in Orlando, cherries are all the rage right now! Here’s a cheerful lil’ birthday card I whipped up using a small sparkle clear set from Hero Arts (CL320). The polka dot background was stamped with cotton white Stazon ink.

Helpful hint: Use a white gel pen to ink any spots that did not stamp fully on your background. 🙂


Monochromatic Madness

Hero Arts recently sponsored a monochromatic week on their blog. It inspired me to play with a few different monochromatic colors including one of favs…purple!


Stamps, ink, & felt flowers are Hero Arts.

Supply List:
PS533 Summer Notecards
CH177 Summer Felt Flowers
CH137 Medium Accent Pearls
CH136 Small Accent Pearls
S5101 Raindrop Background
AF134 Soft Lilac Shadow Ink
VS197 Boysenberry Versacolor cube
Sponge for inking base of card and edges

Add contrast to the base of your card using a sponge and ink a shade darker than your notecard for a nice gradient finish.

Turn white pearls into lavender ones (or the color of your choice!) by coloring them with permanent markers.
