Basic Grey + Hero Arts share

Hey there. Happy Easter a bit early. Hope you have a blessed day. God is good, huh?

I wanted to quickly share a simple card using the new Basic Grey + Hero Arts stamps. Was fun to make. I cut up squares of BG paper scraps and rubbed Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the edges. I then arranged them together on white cardstock. Finally, I embossed with white the image on top – love the white on color. I also stamped on the Latte notecard with Latte Chalk Ink.

This design is a great way to use up scraps! See below for links to the products used.

I also wanted to give you a heads up that a few of my favorite Tim Holtz dies are in stock over at Simon Says Stamp. I have been using the original rosette die for awhile and am now thrilled that a new die is out that cuts two smaller rosettes HERE. (Oh, and if you have trouble with the perforations tearing while turning this into a rosette, try putting a strip of scotch tape down the back. Works like a charm!)

I also love this die with two wonderful hearts. I am picky about my hearts and I just love THESE

Cute, huh?

See you soon.

    Happy Easter to you, too! God is good!!!

    I LOVE your card! I always tend to make cards “from scratch”–using only stamps and distress inks–but I LOVE how you used the patterned paper here to make the stamp really pop out! LOVE it!

    May you and yours have a blessed day, too!
