Quick Complimentary Cards


Hey there! Today I’m stopping in with some cards made just for fun, using a new stamp set from Hero Arts that I designed last year.

I really love big, bold sentiments – how they bring a complex card together or help a simple card really pop. When I got my copy of the new Mix & Match Compliments from Hero Arts, I knew it was a good time to make some quick cards. I pulled out some images that I colored during the last 30 Day Coloring challenge, and the rest came together lickety-split!

CARD DEETS – Custom-Plaid Background

The first card started off with a mouse and some pumpkins from Harvest Mouse, colored with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers. I popped the little guy on a die-cut tag and then stamped the sentiment in black Versafine.

Gah, I love how crisp it is!

I stamped a plaid background using the Candy Stripe background, stamping off once on scratch paper, and then stamping on the green cardstock. Then I did repeated the process, except I turned the stamp 90 degrees, giving a distressed plaid look. The distressed part was more because I was too lazy to bother getting a crisp impression. 😉

CARD DEETS – Quick Cards

These last couple cards are more images colored from the challenge, paired with a simple white card base, a bold sentiment, and a few embellishments.

Here’s the striped pattern, just as stripes, along with a cute little dragon from Magical Dragons.

Another adorable mouse. The Harvest Mouse set is seriously so dang cute.

A cute bear from Birthday Bears and a piece of washi.

Lastly, a card that uses the new Hero Greetings Cheeky Birthday, another concept from yours truly, in collaboration with Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping in today and God bless!
