Having been out of things for a while, I hadn't checked out the latest Hero Arts stamps until late July or August. Not only did I then get the cool blackboard stamp featured in the previous post, I also got a digital kit called "Go Wild". Here is the first card I made with that kit:
The card is actually very bright and colorful. I ran the leopard digital print through my computer with black ink on a lime green card. I then printed out the sentiment and colored it with my new neon Sharpie markers. I love the neon! The alligator (or is it a croc?) was from an older Hero Arts set of cute little animals and is actually stamped twice, once on the card and then a top layer is cut out, colored with Sharpies, and adhered with dimensional tape. I used Glossy Accents for his eyes. I think this would be another perfect card for a birthday.
The thing I most like about the digital stamping is that you can adjust the size of the image. Plus, I don't have to store another stamp! I am a novice and I have found not all files will work on my computer. I like the Winnie and Walter program (see my blog blinkie) because they have two formats of their digital images and at least one will work on my older computer. Hero Arts was very accommodating--they sent me an actual CD from which I could download the images.
I guess I am going wild with making cards right now! I started going to a new church since my previous church is just too far away to feasibly drive to now. When I heard they needed some cards on a regular basis I volunteered to help them out. It's fun, and I think my efforts are appreciated.
