A Trio of Hero Arts!

Happy Friday. I'm typing this up on Thursday night and listening to my two little ones argue.  Marcel has his first loose tooth.  Collin is desperately trying to get him to pull it out "so that you can get money."  Marcel is having nothing to do with it. As soon as Collin feels a loose tooth, he wiggles and wiggles and wiggles and then pulls it out.  Collin clearly has a high pain tolerance as he has pulled out some pretty bloody teeth.  Nasty...but Marcel's not buying it at all.  No matter how much Collin tries.  I wish I had a tape recorder to replay the conversation when they're a bit older!

Now...onto my cards for today...I thought I'd pop in and share a trio of Hero Arts cards.  These are all being entered in their current challenge.  My card last week featured HA stamps, but it has been way to long since I pulled out my HA stamps and got several sets inky.  The first one above features Basic Grey background papers and the HA trees embossed with white embossing ink on Sahara Sand paper. I let my embossing gun go for a bit too long, but still love the monochromatic feel of the card.
This second one is using one of the the HA sketches.  I love this MME paper.  Such wonderful colors.  Super quick and easy card.  Unfortunately, this has already gone in the mail to a co-worker whose father passed away from a long battle with cancer last week.
And finally, my third card... love this background stamp (click on it to see it closer) from HA...a very CAS Christmas card!  Three cards that didn't take super long. Which one do you like best/least?

  8. All your cards SCREAM to me :) LOL But I must say the last one with the monochromatic palette and those stars and ribbon are fabulous :) That conversation sounds so funny...I have a class full of "wigglers" and "the tooth is still hanging on!" Have a great start to your weekend...hugs!

  9. What a fabulous way to use that tree set - white emboss on neutrals. It's really beautiful but I love the simplicity of that last one too...my kids don't pull their teeth out here..in fact my daughter had a hanger for like three months. :)

  10. Lovely trio of cards. My favorite is the 1st one.
    Oh I do hope Marcel gets brave enough to pull the tooth. Once Coleen figured out that she can pull her own teeth when they are loose she goes for it and is so excited when they come out and don't hurt that much.

  14. I dont think I could like any of your cards "least"! ;) I do however love the last one with the soft background and lovely bow.

  15. Really like them all, but I am partial to the first one because I adore the HA Christmas stamp set you used. I also like the how you used kraft for the tree to coordinate with the lovely BG dp behind it!

  16. Hi Lynn, these three are all utterly yummy and I really love the effect of over embossing on the first too but the CAS Christmas card is just beautiful :)
