Hero Arts - THANKS, you are awesome!

Hi friends, welcome back to another fun Pop of Color card; have you joined in the fun this month? You can link up your creations HERE.

I used a piece of designer paper that was mainly black, white and gray with some super small dots of purple at the very top - voila, purple became my pop! I die cut the 'thanks' sentiment multiple times from purple paper then dabbed on some VersaMark and added platinum embossing powder. I then stamped the sentiment 'you are awesome' in VersaMark on vellum and embossed with the same embossing powder. I added a strip of leftover ombre paper and some white striped acetate paper, all adhered with my tiny attacher (first time ever used - yep, truth)!! I finished the card with some glossy accents over the die cut as well as a few scattered throughout the card.

Thanks for stopping by; don't forget to link up your creations HERE!

A Pop of Color Cardinal

Hello, Jess here with a card using one of my new, most favorite stamps ever: the Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal!
He is so ridiculously realistic...I just love him!  So to start my card I stamped the cardinal using shades of red ink.  Then I inked him with various shades of grey and stamped him over the rest of the card. in a random pattern.  I realized later that there was a little red ink left on the stamp which gave the grey just a slight red tint which actually looks pretty cool. ;)
Next I added some of the branches for a little added interest.  Then I die-cut the word 'peace' from the panel and kept all of the pieces.  I die-cut it five more times from white cardstock and adhered them together to create a chipboard-like sentiment.  I adhered the cardinal panel to a white cardbase and then inlaid the 'peace' sentiment on the front of the card.  Finally I stamped the rest of the sentiment on black cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder.  I popped it up with foam mounting tape and adhered it over the die-cut word.

And that's my pop of color card!  You've got a few more days to play along with our August challenge:

A Million Thanks!

Hi stampers, Alisha here for this month's challenge with a card I made featuring a beautiful stamp set called "The Happiest of Peonies".  A huge thank you to The Ton for sponsoring this month's challenge!  Their stamps are so beautiful and make card making a breeze!

I tried to keep my colors to a minimum so that the Peonies would pop off the card.  And the mix of sequins in their Pink Peony Couture Mix is absolutely beautiful!  I recommend you get your hands on as many as you can!  They are a perfect mix of colors.

Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see your creation soon!
Have a blessed day,

Shades of Grey with a pop of Color

Pulled out an oldie by goodie for today's cards! Hero Arts Brush Strokes! I wanted a nice simple stamped background muted enough to stamp my sentiment over top. I went with a grey and yellow color scheme, one of my favorites! After stamping my background I inked up my sentiment with Hero Arts Intense Black and stamped over top. Added a few sequins and there ya have it!
