It’s the little things

Just sharing quickly a card that I made on the weekend using some new (to me) Hero Arts stamps that I purchased recently.

I love Hero Arts pool note cards and that background stamp called Birds and Branches! And thanks to Jess for my button! It was the perfect contrasting colour. I think I may make a set of these in different colours.

I am entering this into the Hero Arts Feb competition. My card fits into 2 categories – it is a friendship card and is a liberal interpretation of the sketch on the right.


Stamps: Hero Arts Birds and Branches (AR173), Hero Arts Find Joy (CL497)
Ink: Versacolor – turquoise
Card: Hero Arts folded cards – Hero Hues – Blush, XPress-It Blending card
Other Supplies: Fiskars scallop border punch, American Crafts button, AnnaBelle Stamps 0.8mm twine, Glue dots

Thanks for stopping by,
