Background Scramble

Another scramble at the Hero Arts Flickr Group, they always make for a good kick in the mojo department.  LaVon was our hostess this time and she tasked us with creating a background.



I used the Classic bloom Hero Arts stamp along with a sentiment from the very versatile Many Everyday Messages set. White heat embossing, brusho's for a messy look and to give it a bit of structure I made a round card mimicking the flower shapes.I used two dies from MFT,and one from Sizzix. It's a bit of whimsy.

Thanks for stopping by, and hugs if you leave a comment!

PS-- I'll be hosting the next scramble at the hero arts Flickr group on March 4th at noon eastern standard time. If you have Hero Arts stamps, dies, or stencils stop by and play along. My winner gets a crafty prize from me, and a second winner gets a digi stamp from Hero Arts.


Edited to Add this to the Happy Lil Stampers Watercolour Challenge with the option of Dies. Both the card and the banner are die cut.

Snowmen at Merry Monday

I've not kept up on my plan to get ahead of the holiday card making. The Merry Monday challenge gave me a great reminder...and a friend gave me a  snowman stamp set recently, so it's a sign, I tell ya!



Some stamping and watercolor pencils makes for a fairly quick card.  Stamp set is from Hampton Arts.





Thank you for taking the time to visit and hugs if you leave a comment :-)

Wood at Addicted to CAS

A card for my BIL, those man cards...they take time but never look it! HA!  Addicted to CAS has Wood as their code word.


I have a very much favorite wood grain background stamp, and when I have a man card to make it often comes out first.  The stamp is by Stampin Up, as is the sentiment stamp used here.  I added some watercolor pencils and then covered them with glossy accents to add some dimension. The green piece is stamped with a sentiment clear embossed over versamark...very subtle.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
