Happy New Year!

Hello and Happy New Year! I am trying to get back into the swing of creating. I took many days off to be with my family and also to finish moving into my somewhat-new craft room. (Almost done!)

But now I am back and have lots to share. Today? Today I have a card showing off the newest Paper Smooches products and newest Hero Arts Shadow Inks

Ack! These stamps make me SO giddy! I stamped the new Papers Smooches Botanicals with the new Lime Green (the perfect lime green), Dark Quartz (orange with a bit of a dark peach tone) and Lemon Yellow (the perfect bright yellow) Hero Arts Shadow Inks. I added some shading to the green stamped leaves with a YG25 Copic Marker. I also used a RV55 marker to add pink touches to the flowers. (You could use any pencils or markers for this.)

I then die cut the Paper Smooches Quote Tag Dies “hello” die 8 times from white cardstock and glued them together. I covered the top die cut with the Hero Arts Ultra Pink Shadow Ink (the perfect bold pink!) and also a few coats of clear Wink of Stella. So shimmery…

This was a fast one to put together. Yay!

If you are interested in more of the newest Paper Smooches products, check HERE. I am in love with THIS and THIS die… and THAT and THAT stamp set. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh – and I will be showing a closer look at these new Hero Arts Shadow Inks next week. Stay tuned.
