Stamping is Good Medicine

What is the best medicine when you have a house full of sick kids while battling the worst sinus infection of all time? New stamps, of course!

So these new Hero Arts stamps have me feeling better…

Nothing fancy here. Just good ol’ stamping with new Hero Arts stamps and Shadow Inks. (Supplies are below.)

Have you ordered any new Hero or have any one your wish list? Would love to hear what caught your eye. See you soon…

  1. What a fantastic card – love all the little elements! Illness has not got your mojo but I hope you all are better soon!

  2. Oh, I sure hope you all feel better soon! What a bummer! It’s amazing how you can create such a fun card even when you’re sick – I love the colors you used!

    I wanted to order some of the new stamps but many are already sold out at SSS – it happened so fast too. Do you have any idea when they’ll be getting more in?

  3. Such a happy card – glad it helped since dealing with sick kids when you feel sick is always so hard! I love the travel set and the paint print (I think that’s the name) but after seeing your card the not perfect set is on my wish list too. Hope you all feel better soon!

  4. Such a bright a cheeful card, hope everyone starts feeling better soon. I’m drawn to the new My Favorite stamp set, it the fabulous feather and the two birds that just have me thinking about it over and over. Also can’t wait to get the two new mid tone colours I’ve been looking for a good peach colour for ages. Take Care.

  5. i hope the whole family is feeling better today! i love your colors, jenn, it brightens my day (and it’s almost midnight!). i love the new catalog of products and inks!

  6. Do hope you all feel better soon. That stinks to be sick especially with the kids too.

  7. The Notebook Essentials set went on my wish list the other day after I saw your fun demo! Today’s card looks great too. Hope everyone is better soon!

  8. Yep, I was too slow, SSS was out of the REMEBER and other sets I had My eye on..Must be patient and wait for restocking:)

  10. This is so bright and cheery! Hope your sinuses and kiddos are better. I love the Not Perfect set and also the Brush Strokes!

  11. Sinus infections are worse than actual colds. Hope you and your family are better soon. I started my list with My Favorites, My Notebook Set, Notebook Essential, My Words, and just decided the whole catalog is my favorite.

  12. I love the My Favorite set and the Remember set and some others too! Hope everyone feels better soon at your house. I’m recuperating from hip replacement surgery and my creativity is limited now but I can’t wait to get my hands on some of these new stamps!!!!!

  13. Stamping/creating is medicine in so many way….for me (living with Fibromyalgia and Disc Disease), I had to give up many of my former hobbies—so I’m so grateful that someone in a support group introduced me to Paper-Crafting. That was just about six years ago and now it’s a passion and a form of relaxation — like therapy for me! I’m so blessed to have this in my life…otherwise, there is no doubt, I’d be very bored, depressed and lost…

  14. Great card – love the colors! I have a big wishlist, but SSS was sold out early on Saturday. πŸ™‚

  15. Hope you all feel better soon. Love your cheerful card, my fav stamp set so far is brush strokes, my 2nd runner up is Not Perfect.

  16. Must be going around!! =( Hoping you and your family feel better soon!!
    I LOVE the color combo and the fun design!! So CUTE!! THANKS for sharing and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)

  17. Such a bright and cheery card!! I hope your family is all feeling better real soon! The new stamp set I have on my wish list is “Remember” I love the combo of flowers and words together in one set, I can see myself getting alot of projects from just this one set!! Thanks for sharing with us.

  18. I had the same sinus infection–and FINALLY gave in and got an antibiotic. I didn’t do any stamping, just some planning. I didn’t want to “infect” any project I was having, with all the coughing, sneezing and wheezing I was doing. Hope you are feeling better, I am, and plan to “stamp the day away” today.

  19. Bet you felt a teensy bit better after making that bright and cheery card! I just love all the faux painting stamps in this catalog. Oh how artsy and fun. Especially with the daubers.

  20. Fabulous card, Jennifer – love those colours! Hope you are all soon better!

    It might be easier to say what I don’t have my eye on – LoL!

  21. I had the same worst sinus infection too a month ago. I gave in and went to the doctor, she gave me antibiotic. But I couldn’t stamp though, was worried I would sneeze all over my card and then would have to do it all over. Yikes! Feel better soon!

    I have tons of stamps on my wish list and I could use some new inks too. Just waiting till it’s payday πŸ™‚ 10 more days!!!

  22. Hero Arts is one of my favorite companies, so my wish list is looong. But right now I’m trying to get the ink pads…so they have priority right now!

  23. Here’s wishing you all a speedy recovery. I can’t believe you are nursing yourself and the kids AND have it in you to create such a pretty card. Get well wishes Jennifer.

  24. Glad you are up to stamping and that sunny card you made will brighten anyones mood. I just ordered the entire line of Hero Midtone shadow inks and am LOVING them. I have so much ink was on the fence but watching you and Shari convinced me there was room in my life for more.. You were right!

  25. Beautiful card! (I call it “Creative Therapy” when I make a card and try to forget being sick!!) And new stamps sure do help πŸ˜‰

  26. Hello,
    I’m curious to know how you do the original card to make the side papers? Where the arrows are and the little green strip? How do you do that? Is it the green card and then you put the white paper on top of that? Sorry, I’m totally new to card making…

    Thank you for all the information…I love your videos!

  27. Glad your new stamps made you feel better! πŸ™‚ I like creating w/circles and shapes and this card uses the new stamps so effectively. Like the colors and design. The area border is cool and I sure wish I had the “knack” for placing random embellishments … not so much. TFS this cool card. πŸ™‚

  28. I’m loving the new stamps that are on the “messy” side–kind of like kids made them. The brush strokes are nice, too. I hope the kiddies feel better soon.

  29. Hope you and your family are feeling like the sunshine you have in your card today. This is one my favorites, love the stamp set. You have made the card so free flowing and cheerful!:)
    Sending get well soon wishes.

  30. Loving the fresh and springy colors you chose. Having had many sinus infections myself, I can say that if you were able to stamp through it, you’re a trooper in my book! And sick kids, too?!?! Good grief! Hope you are all feeling better very soon.

  31. Great card! Love the bright sunny colours – a card that would definitely make you feel better.
