Heidi at Simon Says Stamp is one of the most generous people I *know* in this industry. She sponsors more give-a-ways around the www and has the BEST stamping store out there hands down. Without her generosity A Blog Named Hero would not be able to offer the change to win a $25 gift certificate to her store every challenge. That's $50 a month she sponsor's us for. That is pretty dang AMAZING!!!
To thank her I made not one but TWO cards to share with you today. I used the same stamp set from Simon Says Stamps Exclusive Stamps on both cards.
First up a Thank You card to thank her for all she does:
I started by cutting 10 strips of different washi tapes down to 1.5 inches. I kept the widths they came in and I used a ruler to line them up and adhere them. I used some scrap cardstock to put over the center and then I stamped the Hero Arts CL651 "My Favorite" on a piece of white cardstock, cut it out, added a little bit of Copic coloring and some stickles. To finish is off I stamped the flower from the SSS exclusive Stamp set Flower friend a couple of times, cut them out, layered them and attached with a pop dot.
Here is a close up of the thank you stamp by Hero Arts and the flowers in the SSS exclusive stamp set.
I absolutely LOVE the flowers in this Flower Friend set. I first stamped the background with Hero Arts Thank you definition stamp in soft gray and then arranged a bunch of the flowers from the SSS set on an acrylic block. I inked it well with Hero Arts Splash Chalk in and rotated it as a stamped it a few times. I masked of that 2" strip so the flowers wouldn't go inside. I added the sentiment which also comes in that Flower Friend set. Isn't is just gorgeous? I love the fonts they used.
To finish is off I used some Hero Arts Orange Soda Mid-tone ink to stamp the scallops that come in the Flower Friend set too....are you starting to see how incredibly versatile this one stamp set is??? WOWZA huh? I finished it by using my white Gelly Roll pen by Sakura...hands down the BEST White pen i have EVER used and I have owned every one on the market.
That's it for me today. I am off to enjoy some wonderful Spring weather. How about you? Before you head out to the sunshine please stop by A Blog Named Hero to see what the other girls did. Fabulous stuff I tell ya!
