just playing. . . .

around some more with my new Hero Arts stamps.  I love the new Remember stamp set from the Stamp your Story line and decided to use it once again for this card:



The inks used are cornflower blue and soft pool.  I love the GOLD embossing, too, even though it doesn't look quite as pretty here as it does in person!  I am going to enter this in the Hero Arts current challenge.  To be perfectly honest, I have been inspired by so many of the gals on the Hero Arts Flickr group who have made such beautiful cards with this set.  I don't want to name any one in particular, because there are a plethora of gorgeous creations there.

Have a great weekend!


Edit:  I went to the Hero Arts contest page (you do not enter this contest on the Flickr page) and uploaded my card.  Then, I read the rules for this contest.  You must be inspired by specific things that are listed there:  such as their own card gallery, their own techniques, their catalog, etc.  So, I guess my card won't qualify for the contest.  :)  But it doesn't end until September and you can enter as many cards as you like.  So, maybe I will try again.  Toodles!

I love this mix of blues, Joy! Thanks for reading the fine print for the challenge (I missed those details, too!).

Just beautiful. And I'm sure that you have been inspired by cards in the gallery.

Beautifully done Joy! You've inspired me to look at that set again maybe with different eyes! I love those flowers in the set! Gorgeous blues!

contest or not, this is a lovely card! I do agree- the gold embossing looks fabulous especially with these blues!

This is so stunning, Joy! You are a real inspiration with these lovely layers of color highlighted by that good embossing (I need to remember to use some once in awhile!). Great look!
