I've been playing with the Hero Arts stamps I received to demonstrate what you can do with those wonderful Hero Arts stamps in the 2011 Catalog. I think I can do without a stamp and then someone just does something awesome with it. I have been having a great time crafting with the new stamps. They don't leave my desk. I want them up where I can see and use them all the way to hop time. Be sure to come back January 12th for the big reveals that I'll share on my team's blog hop. It begins at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Standard time.
But to whet your taste buds, I created this today! I loved the new Card Patterns sketch for this week and am entering this beauty for their challenge. I wish I had more time, but I don't. The pink metal heart in the middle of the flower, I found at the bottom of my embellishments drawer - how lucky was I? The paper must be 10 years old, so I don't know the maker, but it could be from an old line of Dots products. This Hand Drawn Flower(CG285 just begs to be paper pieced. It's scattered with tiny pearls and the 4 two-inch squares received a pearl and purple gem. The sheer purple bow and metal heart jumped right on. The paper is much more purple than in the photo. I hope you join me tomorrow when I'll be posting some decorated envelopes.
