When we woke up this morning, we got a little bit of snow. It is almost gone by now, because the sun shines and the temperatures got higher.
But it forced me to finally show the cards I made this month with the "snowy house" , a Hero Arts stamp I super love!

I always feel happy to use this stamp. I stamped it with Versa Mark, and embossed it with black embossing powder wich has a little shine. De trees are cut with my cricut and covered with "Frosted Lace" stickles; a technique by Lucy Abrams!

And a fun announcement: This evening I will host my second Hero Arts 90 minute scramble. Hope you will be there to join me! Thats so much appreciated!

Thanks for visiting!

Needed an anniversary card. So, I embossed two roses in white. Colored them with distress inks. The heart is a Hero Arts stamp. In the background a wood stamp by Impression Obsession.
Glued it all together with a Simon Says Stamp banner, stamped wit a Hero Arts sentiment. Easy, but fun result!

Thinking of You

A daughter of one of my friends is traveling to South America. She is the same age of my daughter. She will be there for a couple of months for fun and for study. So, I thought I would be nice to make her a card to let her know we are thinking of her and wish her luck.

For the "90 minute scramble 98" on Hero Arts blog I made a card with snowflakes. Wich you can see here:

After that I read a blogpost on Wplus9 Blog by Maureen Merrit. She is very talented and I love her cards. You can find her own blog here:

On Wplus9 blog she showed how you can make different looking cards with the same stampset.
You can read it here:

And off course I wanted to try it myself, and with the same stampset as I used at the 90 minute scramble. Here they come!

All of these cards are made with a Hero Arts stampset: "Enjoy the seasons" CG210.
After stamping the snowflakes I added some other stamps and embellishments.
Very fun to do, I can recommand it!
Thanks for visiting,that is much appreciated!

Joy to You

Like to show you a card I made for Virginia's Challenge of this month:"All things Distressed". You can find it here:

It is one of my Christmas cards. The background is colored and stamped with Distress Inks. Both stamps in the background are Hero Arts.Than stamped snowflakes on it, and embossed it with white embossing powder. And because the edges were a little wet, the embossing powder sticked on to it like snow. I like that!

The tree and the die cut snowflakes are cut with my Cricut Machine and covered with Stickles "Frosted Lace". The house stamp is "We R Memory Keepers". And finally the "Bramble Circle" is Memory Box.
