Hello....Tuesday Trigger & Layered Stamping

I have been blog neglectful again. I apologize. I have been scrapping away. I have a lot of calls I want to enter and I have had not time left to make something add to my blog. I however cleared my desk yesterday to make time for this weeks Tuesday Trigger from the Moxie Fab World Blog. Love this weeks trigger. I love the colors in it. I keep pulling it up just to look at. It's so dang pretty!

Hello

hello 2

I decided to use this as an entry into this months Hero Arts challenge too. The technique this month is layered stamping.

I used the Hero Arts Classic Fabric Design cling stamp and stamped in blue for a tone on tone effect on the background of my card. I then die cut an artisan shape with my Big Shot and a Spellbinders Nestabilities die {Labels #8} in white and then traced it a little bigger in red. I stamped the Hero Arts Tall Flower on the white and then again on some October Afternoon paper and some Basic Grey paper, cut it out and then pop dotted it on the image that was stamped on white. To finish it off I used some Glossy Accents to cover the leaves and added a bow. It's a very simple technique...and super fun. Shari Carroll has a video on it HERE if you are interested.
