New Hero stamps

Busy at 'proper' work today so just a quick share in my coffee break........third espresso of the morning so should keep me going to lunchtime.

This is one of the cards I made for Sir Stamplaot last week using some of the new Hero Arts cling stamps, this one is C0115 which I stamped onto heatable acetate with versafine then embossed with detail gold, but masking the 'thank you' wording in the centre as I wanted to place a butterfly there instead. It's always difficult to photograph acetate but the wrap is slightly visible on the second picture.

I stamped the card itself with Hero G3316 harlequin using Hero shadow soft sand then Inkainkado 97513 leafy swirls and and Penny Black 3816E butterfly using versamark and detail gold embossing powder. I placed lace down the side underneath the acetate then fixed the stamped acetate in place with ribbon. Finally I stamped the flowers from the Hero stamp twice more onto acetate, again embossing with detail gold and decoupaged them on the front of the card with a gem brad.

I also want to take the opportunity to thank my Allsorts teamie Debs for giving me this award, thank you so much Debs, hope the backs improving.

I shall be back late with a small candy offering.

Oh Brenda I love this card - it's so stylish. Am on a bit of a catch up at the moment - had a day out yesterday and not feeling too great today so I'll come back to look at your glimmer mist tutorial later when hopefully I'll feel a little more 'human'.

Love Lynda xxx
