Hero Arts...Yummy!

It's been way too long since I pulled out my Hero Arts stamps.  I must say that I love this wreath stamp.  Every time I ink it up I think I need to ink it up more often!  This top card's layout is inspired by Aimes gorgeous card here. This card is about to hit the production line for my Christmas cards.  I like not having too many steps when I'm going to make them in mass!  Also...not sure how well you can see this but the top panel is embossed with my PTI linen impression plate. 

The second card is inspired by the current Hero Arts Color Challenge for September.  I went very subtle on the first two colors - using Ranger Antique Linen on the background and then again on the edges of the white panel. 
Looking at these both makes me think I need to go shopping for more Hero Arts stamps :)  Happy Tuesday!

  2. It is an awesome stamp and yes - do some Hero Arts shopping and a little extra shopping for me too!

    Love the off centered wreath in the first one and the subtle inking and twine.

    Amazing what a different effect you get from the same stamp in the 2nd card. That red flower is fabulous and love the envie background!
