I am so happy that Hero Arts has paired with Sizzix to make some awesome new stamp set/die/embossing folder combos! As someone who was very slow to hop aboard that die cutting train, I am making up for lost time by adding to my collection. Hero Arts makes so many wonderful images for clean and simple stamping. I loved this set! Three different sizes of bike stamps, a few sentiments, and a nice triangle stamp and die to make those very popular pennant/ banner images that I'm seeing everywhere.
For this card, I decided to use some background papers paired with die cut images. The papers are from We R Memory Keepers. This was a super easy card to make. It looks a lot more complicated and detailed because of the papers.
But what if I were to use the stamps to make a One Layer Wonder card? Could I still make it fun and interesting? Of course!
I stamped some gingham grass (PTI) onto rustic white card stock, stamped the bike in Versafine Onyx, and then sponged on some blue clouds. Look ma, no layers!
Today is my biker husband's birthday! Tell me, which card should I give him?
I always say a prayer for two sets of parents on this day. I pray for the birth parents who gave my husband the gift of life, and I pray for the adopting parents who gave him a home. It's a wonderful story of sacrificial love during the holiday season.
Eight days until Christmas! Are you prepared? Yeah, me neither! Happy Saturday, friends!
