Hero Arts Flicker Group 90 Minute Scramble

Last night I managed to participate in my first Hero Arts 90 Minute Scramble - only, by the time I got a chance to start the card, there were only 30 minutes to go, and I fluffed my first attempt and had to start again.

The challenge was to use the little stamps that come with a set of clear stamps - the ones you usually don't look at or forget about, to put those to use.  I used the tiny stamps from a sentiment set, Find Joy, plus a Tim Holtz die cut and Hero Arts Blush Paper.  Stamped with Peeled Paint and Worn Lipstick.

You should have seen my kitchen table at the end of those 30 minutes!

Me to You Saturday 3

Welcome to another Me to You Saturday.

This stamp came free with a docrafts magazine.  I just added some watercolour pencil blue for the nose, went over some detail with a black watercolour pencil, and used the grey Me to You ink to add some shading.  A little Glossy Accents to add shine to the nose.  Me to You papers, Papermania pink cardstock, Me to You outline stickers coloured with blue Papermania Metallic Marker, some gems, flower punch, Anita's A6 card blank.

Have a look at Sarpreet's cute little Me to You bookmark

Have a look at what Pinky and Sarpreet have made.

Look what the postie brought

I meant to show you what the postie brought last week - the new Hero Arts Christmas catalogue.  Lots of lovely stamps, new and old, and of course inspiration on almost every page.  You can view the online version here

But it would be no fun for the magazine to arrive with no goodies!  So I also had these:

along with some other stamps and goodies I can't put my hand to at the moment.  Looking forward to getting inky with these.

Me to You Saturday

Morning all. Just realised it's almost a month since I blogged.  School holidays etc.  I'm not even going to mention the weather!!

I loved Sarpreet's idea for making more use of your stash, so I pinched it! She doesn't mind.  She has a Me to You Saturday, Forever Friends Sunday, Penny Black Monday etc.  I will have to have a day for Hero Arts, too - have loads of their stamps, and the postie brought more last week.

The card was made with decoupage and paper from the May goodie bag, some die cut mirri card, a Me to You embossing folder and some ribbon.  Anita's square card blank.

See you tomorrow with Forever Friends Sunday ...... Ger x.
