Another from Kay…

Hey, there!  I am in Orlando for CHA.  Lots of fun stuff happening at Hero. Be sure to follow them on Twitter (myheroarts) to get peeks at new stamps.  In the meantime, here is a post from my sweet Kay…

‘Ello! It’s Kay, during the takeover week! Today has been pretty interesting, because I looked on the Hero Arts website (okay, Mum showed me) and saw that there was a contest for the week, where you have to make a monochromatic colored card to win stamps. The first thing I thought was… why do you we need more stamps?

I entered anyways though, just for fun, and I created my very first all pink card in the era of all of my cards, which means this is a historical day. Personally, I’m just glad that this is one history test I’ll ace! But what’s funny about the card, entered for the Hero contest, it used almost entirely the competitions products. The only Hero products I used were the ink on the background, the note card, and the pearl. Thankfully, my Mum tells me that Hero supports other companies, so it’s all good. After all, if all the other companies were like my snapdragons and died, this beautiful art would be extinct. But, unlike my snapdragons, the companies are respectful of competition and thrive. (I have a long history of killing entire beds of snapdragons.  Ha.)

This card was created with a pale pink Hero Arts note card that was turned a darker color with the Soft Blossom ink. The butterflies were stamped on the same color card with the same ink, and the “happiness” stamp is on another piece of pale pink note card. The butterflies are held on by Pop-dots and the ribbon is silk ribbon. The Stickles are also distributed by Hero Arts and they are the color Diamond. So here is the card itself:


Tomorrow I plan on posting a video of another card, using another one of my favorite products ever (chalk!) This is super exciting because it means three things: first, I get to use chalk! Second, I get to use my video camera. And third, I get to edit a movie, which is one of my one true loves along with horseback riding, card making, and Graeters ice cream!

I know this is a little off subject, but the best ice cream in the entire world is Black Raspberry Chip from Graeters. It is soooooo good…

Until then, may you be as happy as my brother with a milk.
