Look What Just Arrived!

Today we received a shipment of goodies from Hero Arts!  Have you seen these new stamps from them yet??  They are so cool.  Each set combines the stamps as well as the dies or the embossing folders.  So first you stamp, then cut or emboss!  Now if that isn't easy, we don't know what is!

Below is a sample of a card made by Tami Hartley from Hero Arts using one of the new stamps and embossing folder sets.
Isn't it beautiful!  Come and visit us and check out all the goodies.  But don't delay, these sets will go fast!

A very popular saying goes like this, "You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching, love like you'll never be hurt, sing like there's nobody listening and live like it's heave on earth."  Isn't that a fabulous saying?  We think so, and so it inspired this card.

Simple and elegant, this card features a lone ballet dancer, dancing en pointe.  We didn't overdo the embellishments.  The beauty and grace of the dancer takes center stage.  We simply coloured her in with Copics, painted some Distress Tea Dye ink underneath her to ground her and added 3 litle gems on the side.  Finished.  Simple and Perfect.  Here's a close up:
You can purchase a kit to create this card.  The kit will include everything you need to make the card 6 times -- all you need to do is colour in the images and glue the pieces together.  Hope you like it.
