Hero Arts Warm Wishes

I can't even think about going back to work tomorrow. Ugh! I was off Thursday and Friday working on the new web store, among other things. Saturday and today I worked on it as well, but took a little break both days to soak up some sun by the pool. Ahhhh....life is good!


Today I just had to stamp something before I went into total withdrawal. This card is the fourth one I've made from the Hero Arts set called Sweet and Simple Patterns . The other three cards are also on my blog, so if you click on Hero Arts cards to the right you can find them.

I used my new Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder on the light pink panel, then inked up the gray side of a piece of Cut 'n' Dry foam with VersaMagic Pink Petunia. Since the gray side is firm, you can just rub it across the raised portion of the embossed panel and it doesn't get ink anywhere else.

The images were stamped with VersaMagic Jumbo Java, then embossed with JudiKins clear detail embossing powder. I stamped once on medium pink and once on light pink, then cut out the sentiment from the light pink and layered it on top of the medium pink. A few more layers of Bazzil cardstock, a little May Arts ribbon, and voila...it's a card!

I'm off to bed....the alarm goes off much too early! I hope you have a great week!

I have this set but never thought of pairing it with Textile CB!! I love it so much. It came with a set of cards and a little idea sheet I am just loving. I need to post pics of those cards I use them all the time.
