You are Beautiful Inside and Out

Hi friends! It is blizzard-ing outside right now, so I thought I'd post a cheerful, springy card on my blog today.

Hero Arts is a relatively new company to me... I've only been buying their stamps for about a year. BUT they've quickly become one of my favorite companies! I used several Hero Arts products from their Spring 2016 release. To start, I stamped the lovely woodgrain background on an aqua card base using Bright Emerald ink from The Ton. I did a little ink blending with the same ink in the center of the card to create a highlighted background for my sentiment, then set my card base aside. I die cut and stamped the flowers using the Coloring Layering Flowers For You and coordinating dies. (Pink and aqua make my heart happy.) The sentiment is also a new set, Beautiful You dies and Beautiful Words stamps from Concord and 9th, and my oh my, does that font on that die make my heart go pitter patter. I adhered the beautiful die cut and heat embossed the rest of the sentiment in bright white embossing powder on the highlighted section of card base. After I had the sentiment finished, I arranged and adhered the flowers the way I liked them, popping some of the larger blooms up with dimensional adhesive. The final step was some Glass Slipper sequins from The Ton to add some sparkle and balance out the floral sprays. 

I hope you enjoyed this card! I'm going to keep wishing for spring as I watch the snow outside of my window....
