Welcome to my part of the Hero Arts Blog hop. I’m so excited you stopped by, and I have some exciting new 2010 stamps to share with you!
"Thinking of You"
I love this doily stamp and I wanted to design this card with a dramatic flower using this doily. I wanted to use lots of color when I selected my Copics. After coloring I used my craft knife to cut the center “petals” and bent them up. I promise it was easy. Added some bling and cut and layered. For the background I used clear embossing powder on the same doily stamp for a hint of color and pattern.

I love any Hero Arts butterflies and these new butterfly antique engravings are no exception! To begin I stamped the clouds, then inked up the dandelion stamp. I was just dying to color the butterflies and I wish the picture showed the shading better. After cutting out the butterflies I applied Glossy Accents to each butterfly. Added texture to the background with some Cuttlebug dots embossing folder and I scored the teal strip with my Scor-pal.

"Coffee or Tea"
I just love this new clear set called What’s Perking. The very first thing that I did was pencil in the steam squiggles then very slowly stitched them with my machine turning the paper ever so slowly. Erase any leftover pencil marks. (It may take a few tries but the result is well worth it.) Now you are safe to stamp, masking one mug. I switched the handle on the left mug because it was in my visual space by cutting it off and adhering to the other side of the mug. I randomly picked some bright colors and really enjoyed coloring these adorable coffee and tea mugs.
