Hero Arts Flower Cluster and Posy Skettch

Hi hope you have all managed to stay warm today and every one is feeling better than last week. My plan yesterday was to put up the Xmas Tree and get all the decorations done and out of the way but alas it wasn't to be with a house full of hungry family and grand children and boxes and boxes of trees lights and various other decorations to go through and sort out that were all over the lounge, dining room and even in the hallway I didn't stand a chance with just too many hands of the little variety all wanting to help it was just pure chaos so I gave up and now it is all waiting for me to start over, at least I will be able to do it at my own pace lol!
Here for you to look at are my efforts from this week end using Hero Arts stamps Flower Cluster and Posy Cluster Sketches hope you like them....
 I have stamped the flowers in Black Memento and coloured them with my Promarkers and glitter pens. The front of the card has also been stamped with Memento ink and coloured with D Inks Tumbled Glass and Scattered Straw. I have added yellow Stickles glitter glue to some of the background flowers.

On this card I have stamped all the images with my Memento Ink and used  D Ink pads - Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass, Shabby Shutters and Faded Jeans.
 Both dies are cut from Spellbinder Dies.
Everything is glued with Cosmic Shimmer Glue

Hope you all stay wrapped up and warm this week as I have herd it is going to get colder BRrrrrrrrrrr, I know I will  : o

Hero Arts Continued

Good morning yet another wet and dreary day to look forward to Ha! just the weather for crafting I say and for those of you who will be joining me this afternoon to do just that here as promised is the second of the cards we will be making in this weeks classes...................

I have kept this one simple in style and have only used Walnut Stain D.Ink pad to stamp the images and also colour them.
I have die cut two Spellbinders corner dies in Gold Mirror card and a touch of Cosmic Shimmer glue to fix them into place, and the sentiment has been layered onto the Gold Mirror card as well.
Some cream seam binding ribbon and a couple of self adhesive pearls add the finishing touch.
See you later x

What a Weekend! & Hero Arts

Hi to all you ladies hope you had a really good weekend, and it was nothing like mine! We had our Grandson's Christening Yesterday and after much stress and deliberation too-ing and fro-ing , Where's this ? Where's that ? Who's got what ? Where's my? Who's taking who ? What happened to that ? What time is it? We'er going to be late, Should be at church NOW!  OMG nowhere to park******, etc, etc, no wonder I came home early with an horrendous headache and went to bed before 8.30pm.  I'm so glad it's Monday, Oh OMG, class cards!!! got to finish, so you can judge what my weekend was like and that's just a small part of it so it's no wonder to you all why I am so behind with this weeks classes, apologies to everyone.
Right this week we are going to use some Hero Art stamps to create our border and main image. On the first card I have used Distress inks Picked Raspberry , Evergreen Bough and Shabby Shutters and I have stamped with Memento black. I have coloured the images with the D Inks and added some glitter with my Quickie Glue pen. Both the background paper and Die cut panel have been sprayed with a gold shimmer spray. Spiders web has been added behind the main panel to add dimension and texture.
Here are a couple of pics to help you get the picture of what we will be doing this week x

The background paper has been stamped with the Script stamp in Evergreen Bough and a couple of swirl stamps in black ink and then it has been sprayed with gold shimmer mica spray.
The images have been painted with D Inks and glitter has been added to the main image with a quickie glue pen. 

Here you can see the Hero Arts stamps that I used, I really like the script and sentiment stamps, the swirl stamp is from my stash.
Will post a pic of the second card we will be making  later x
