Window Card // Hero Arts

Hero Arts has a new challenge on the blog - Tic-Tac-Toe! How fun is that??

Here is a Mother's Day card (at least I'll be prepared for next year!) utilizing the challenge, as well as the Simon Says Stamp challenge (anything goes)...

I finally got my hands on the Hello Stamp and Cut after waiting for what felt like forever, and lemme tell you, it's pretty hard to put this stamp set/die combo down! I love how this set covers a multitude of occasions - a solid go-to sentiment set!
For my card, to make sure the accompanying sentiment, "mother's day", didn't get lost, I heat embossed it in white on black cardstock. Then I adhered the delicate "happy" above it using Tombow liquid glue (I finally joined the Tombow bandwagon after watching dozens of Kristina Werner's videos)

I thought that The Fox Says stamp set would go perfectly with the sentiment - as one kid out of nine, I didn't get too much nuzzling time, but when I did, I loved it!
The coloring isn't too fabulous - I'll be honest, if I color with anything aside from watercolors, the results are gonna be far from perfect. But in this case, I thought the coloring worked...plus (as is always the case) I was lazy.
The window was created using circle dies - I had to roll it through my Cuttlebug twice, since there were four layers of paper to cut through.

Here's the playing board...

I did the far right vertical row - heat embossing (sentiment), die cutting (sentiment) and my favorite color (for cards - pink!)

Thanks so much for stopping in today and have a beautiful day!
