Both cards are made from older, retired Hero Arts shadow stamps, and both are ideas I got from Hero Arts. I love my stamps, new or old! I stamped the birthday card in a blue Clearsnap chalk ink three times and then punched, cut, and layered to get the look. And to think I almost sold that tag punch is a garage sale! The paper is from an older Hero Arts/Basic Grey 6" x 6" paper stack. The card on the right was made from basic cardstock and stamping. I stamped the dots background in a Ranger orange dye ink and the orange stripe was stamped with Clearsnap orange pigment ink. The little flower and the hello sentiment was stamped over the orange with a Black Memento dye pad. A little bit of ribbon and I have some cute cards! Thank you, Hero Arts, for your timeless images! I hope to still get some mileage out of them!
