Hero Arts Stamps

Well, life got in the way again, but that is life!

Here are the cards that I was going to post this week one day at a time. They are all Hero Arts stamps that I have purchased throughout the summer with the good intention of getting a card made with them right away. LOL!!!!!!! Notice the exclamation points, huh, never happened! But, I did have time over Labor Day, and here they are:

This card was made with a stamp from the Hero Arts Poly Clear set, Real Flowers, sentiment is also a Hero Arts stamp, a MS butterfly punch, rick rack, and card stock from Lasting Impressions.

I used another stamp from the same set for this card. I used the new Shadow Inks that Hero Arts came out with to stamp the image. The sentiment and border punch are from Stampin' Up.

This stamp is a rubber cling stamp from Hero Arts called Butterfly Field. I stamped the image with Brilliance Moonlight White pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then took my sponge daubers and added Distress Inks in various colors to the image and wiped off the excess with a kleenex.

This stamp is also a rubber cling stamp called Poppy Backgound. I inked the image with first Wild Honey Distress ink and then added Barn Red Distress ink to the bottom of the image. I then coated with clear embossing powder and heat embossed.

The purpose of these cards, for myself, was to prove that I still could create cards that did not involve coloring of images. While I do love my Copics, I wanted to try some other mediums.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you will share your thoughts!

Deb, those are all so very lovely! I am glad to see something other than copic's used, as I do not have any & this gives me ideas on ways to use what I do have.

Have a wonderful week, and thanks again for posting the cards. I need to take a new look at Hero Arts.
Hugs, Pat
