City of Lights

Let's go NOW!

I sure wish that this card photographed better - it really sparkles in person. For this card it was necessary for me to rely on my high school/college french (it says "lets go right now!). The card is made with one of my favorite Hero Arts stamp sets (Paris - CL325), a vintage button, a vintage postcard and some bling!

Enjoy, au revoir and have a great weekend!

Today's card is another featuring a cute Hero Arts Stamp. Isn't she adorable? I colored her up with Copics and used a new Nestie die for the background shape. The card background is a piece of delicate rice paper stationary I found when a local stationary store was going out of business. Can you see the stamp in the lower left corner? I added a little final class with some pearls and little flowers. I think this gal has personality! Thanks for looking!

What's Cooking?

For those of you who know me, it ain't much! Even though I'm not much of a cook, I love to collect vintage cookbooks. I found a cute way to incorporate pix from one of my cookbooks into a card. These Hero Arts stamps are just perfect. I paper pieced the chef's hat and spoon and layered them for dimension. And every chef needs googly eyes! I embossed the sweet little pot holder to resemble stitching and used my Nesties to cut out the cookbook and related designer paper.

Love this little chef......wonder if he is busy for Thanksgiving?

Here is a card that I made for a recent Hero Arts Design Challenge. I found the most perfect piece of vintage blanket binding in my ribbon stash - adds some glam!
