One Stamp Two Cards

Today I took out one of my first ever Hero Arts stamps. It's called Sweet Threads by Hero Arts. I love flowers and this stamp set has several flower stamps along with  a leaf stamp.  I made two very different cards with the stamp set. 

The first card features a stamped strip double matted. 
1. Stamp the image
2. Double mat the image strip
3. Add sentiment
4. Add bow
Stamps: All Hero Arts CL574, CG309
Inks: All Hero Arts Cup O' Joe, Wet Cement
Papers: Recollections, Jillibean Soup
Fibers: Hug Snug seam binding

The second card features cut out and popped up images.
1. Stamp the images, some twice
2. Fussy cut popped up images
3. Stamp sentiments
4. Add ribbon and bling
5. Add popped up images
Stamps: All Hero Arts CG309, LP237
Inks: Versafine Onyx Black, Hero Arts Green Hills, Butterbar
Card base: Hero Arts
Paper: Stampin Up
Gem: Colorbok
Fiber: Hero Hues

Thanks for stopping, have a great week.

The sympathy card is great. Also like the way you used the stamp on both cards. Good job.
