Gold embossed snowflake

Hi everyone, hope you're having a great weekend!

I am having lots of fun with using my Hero Arts Large Snowflake die to make snowflake shaped cards!  This one I heat emboss with gold powder using the Dazzling Snowflake.  But the stamp is so delicate and beautiful I have trouble adding more to it.  So I just cut sections of it and turned them upward, and put a gem in the middle.  And I will enter it to the current Hero Arts Holiday challenge in the A Few of My Favoirte Things category (technique: heat embossing) and Die Cut Diva's November/December Challenge - Let's Celebrate.

Stamp, die and gem are all from Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by.

Snowflake shaped card

Hi everyone:

Hope you're enjoying your weekend.  I got to play with my inks and stamps this weekend, and I made another shaped card.  I used Hero Art's Frame Cut Big Snowflake (DI044) to cut my shaped card after I stamped Hero Art's Stunning Snowflake on cream cs.  And I am going to enter it to the current Die Cut Diva's Monthly Challenge - Holidays and Celebration.

Stamps: (Stunning Snowflakes, Little Greeting Holidays) Hero Arts
Mid-Tone Shadow ink: (Wet Cement, Red Royal) Hero Arts
Distress Ink: (Vintage Photo) Ranger

Blingy Winter's Butterflies

Hello welcome back.  It's been a while!

At long last, I've get to play with my inks and stamps since my mom's went into the hospital for an open heart surgery mid-October.  Got a new stamp, that's new to my collection, but it's an older edition from Hero Arts.  I am sure most of you remember the Stunning Snowflakes (S5069) from 2008?  I used my Neon Daubers mixed with a little bit of Perfect Pearls solution to stamp my card and "decked" it with gems and stickles.  And I am entering it to the Bright and Merry category of the current Hero Arts Holiday Contest.


Stamps:  (Stunning Snowflakes) Hero Arts; (Christmas Banners) Penny Black
Neon ink baubers:  (Blue, Yellow, Pink) Hero Arts
Dietress ink: (Chipped Sapphire) Ranger
Others: gems, Stickles

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend!
