May My Monthly Hero blog hop

Today I'm participating in a fun hop today - the Hero Arts May My Monthly Hero release blog hop! This is what this month's kit is looking like...

I'm actually using the add-on stamp set...
I created a fun little background using some bright colors and heart pearls...

You can't see in the photo, but I added glitter to the pink envelopes, for a little more "character."

Check out the rest of the blog hop for more inspiration, using the awesome main stamp set and dies, and comment for a chance to win a kit yourself!

Check out the Hero Arts blog for more ideas and more details on the kit and add-ons! The kit is available for a limited time only - once it's gone, it's gone.

Thanks so much for stopping in and God bless!

Quick Watercolor // Hero Arts

Just popping in quickly with a simple card, using two mini stamps.

I used the adorable little Just For You by Lia stamp set, along with the Thanks Stamp and Cut. I was totally inspired by THIS pin.
I colored the images in using Zig Clean Color brushes. When I wanted a lighter color of a certain shade, I simply added some dabs of color to the image and then drew it out with some water. I love using these brushes!

Thanks so much for stopping in today and God bless!

Quick Card Set // Hero Arts

Today I want to quickly share with you a quick card set, that can be customized to fit pretty much any occasion.

For the set, I focused on using the Antique Rose Stem stamp and the Kelly Rasmussen handwriting stamps.

I decided to use Soft Apricot because I felt like it was a color that worked well for so many different occasions, like the sentiments. You could use different colors, or even do a rainbow colored card set!

I topped off the cards with some matching gems and pearls, adhered them to the card base, and done! The stamps make this design so quick and easy to replicate and change up!

Thanks so much for stopping in today and God bless!

Color without Coloring + GIVEAWAY // Hero Arts

You know how sometimes you get visions of cards to make, but then sometimes you just have the darnedest time actually achieving that vision?
Today's card isn't one of those - it's actually quite like my vision. Thing is, I'm just not sure if I actually like the vision, now that it's real. ;)

Despite the my qualms, it was fun to stamp these pretty flowers. I'm coloring-challenged when it comes to detailed stamps like this, so I had fun using them in a colorful, but not colored, way. ;)

For another color-without-coloring card idea, check out my post on the Hero Arts blog HERE.

Also, as a thank you for everyone and anyone who stops in here, takes a peeksy, maybe leaves a comment - I'm giving away this extra stamp and ink pad I have. Just leave a comment to be entered! I'll draw a winner May 11th. U.S. only!

Thanks so much for stopping in and have a great day!
