Playing With Old Hero Arts Stamps Inspired by Shari Carroll

When I saw Shari's post on Simon Says Stamps Blog yesterday, I knew I had to get out my old Hero Arts shadow stamps and Real Poppy and play!  These stamps were some of my favorites many years ago.
I'm so glad Hero Arts just pulled Real Poppy out of the vault as it is a must have for any stamper....
I decided to make a small set of notecards using my old stamps!

I love how easy it is to create cards with these stamps

Inks used are Hero Arts and Simon Says and are linked below.
Thank you Shari Carroll for always inspiring me and Thanks to Hero Arts for many many happy years of inking and stamping!

Thanks for stopping by today!

A Baseball Card for my Grandson!


I love the technique Karen Burniston showed a few weeks ago using her Cake Pop Up die for a stage.
Well I thought it would make a perfect baseball field too :)  I used stamps by Waffleflower Crafts for this fun card!
I did not add the catcher as he would have his back facing out...but you get the idea.

Below is the front of the card

I used the Happy Birthday die and slipped off the birthday.

Below is the card opened up!

and a closer look....

Supplies I used for this are linked below.  If you want to watch Karen's video on this go HERE :)

Another Cake Pop Up This Time A Masculine One!


Today is my big brothers birthday so while I was playing with the Cake Pop Up by Karen Burniston, I decided to make a masculine one...
I used papers by MFT that are retired.  I'm trying to use papers instead of hoard them :)

Here is the front!

I love that Brother die by Simon Says gets lots of use here as I have three brothers that I adore...
The Sentiment is MFT and all other dies are by Karen!

Here is the Inside!

And a Closer look at the cake....

Love this die set but you know that :)
Thank you for stopping and have a wonderful day!!
