Love this new stamping technique!

I pretty much copied the flower portion of Jennifer's card today from Hero Arts Blog. Added a few things. Love smooching :-)

Materials used: HA D4904 Heart Blossom, HA CL298 Scattered Leaves, HA CL129 (sentiment), HA CL379 Stamp a Garden (grass); Hero Hues Chalk Ink Punch, Cerulean, Poppy and Grass. I don't have a clue where the butterfly stamp came from. It is a clear stamp but I do not have the original package the group of stamps came in. I used Color Box Chalk Ink Cats Eye Orchid Pastel. Small heart punch for the butterfly trail.

The flowers and butterfly were "smooched" with HA S5447 (Large Plaid Pattern).

Thanks for Looking!

Cards of Encouragement

Every Day Is A Gift

I created the background by sponging on Hero Arts Shadow Ink Soft Pink Ink and Soft Leaf. The flower stamp is Stampendous Q130 Fresh Blossom. I used WaterColor Pencils to color the flowers. The center of the pink flower has Glossy Accents. The sentiment is HA CL43.

Sentiment on the inside of the card:
"God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble."
Psalm 46:1

God is our hope and strength.
May you find hope in His promise,
faith in His love,
and peace in His presence.

Wishing You All Things Wonderful

I created the background by sponging on Hero Arts Shadow Ink Soft Leaf Tim Holtz Distress Ink Broken China. The flower stamp is Hero Arts CG291 stamped three times on pink cardstock and cut out. The edges of the flower are curled. The leaves were stamped on Cricut Celebrations printed paper. The sentiment is HA CL43.

I used the same sentiment on the inside of this card as the previous one.

Thank you so much for stopping by and looking.

Thought for the day:
