I Am Thankful

This is an absolutely earth-shattering second post from me in TWO days! I KNOW!! You all may pick up your jaws from the floor now. :) Heehee!

I have to admit (if I haven’t already) that I have a deep, deeeep love for the new line from Hero Arts – Stamp Your Story. It’s so artsy, so fun, and sooooooo beautiful! All the stamps are so versatile, too. Whether you’re a cardmaker (like me), a scrapbooker, project life-er, or into mixed media and art journaling. These sets can all be used interchangeably. I seriously love them all. Major swoonage! ♥

Now, confession time. I saw the Painted Canvas stamp in the catalog and thought: “Pfft, I don’t need that! Who needs a stamp of drippy paint when I can do that myself?” Well, apparently I do. Haha!! It makes it much easier to get just the right colors and effects that you want. It’s so super pretty. Just look at what I did with it, the ink daubers, and some additional stamps:


(I love creating cards like this. They just flow.)

Ahhhh…the sentiment? SO easy to create from the variety of sets. And I really AM thankful. While I do have struggles that I deal with on a daily basis, I have to keep myself in check and remember how much I *DO* have to be thankful for. And, I’m so grateful to those of you who continue to stick with me and read my blog. I am so blessed by you. xoxo

    Oh! I love this. I thought the same when I saw that stamp in the catalog. I may have even rolled my eyes. But now that I see people using it, it’s a must have.

    Just had to comment. This is gorgeous and the colors are a wonderful choice. I’ve been looking at this stamp, too and your card may have pushed me over the edge to buying it!!!!!

  7. Ouuuuuu! Another stunner. I second the “Major swoonage” Love how you put that. I thought the same thing at first about the doing it yourself dripping bits, but the more I see those Hero Arts painterly stamps in action the more I realize how much i need ’em. Thanks for the gorgeous inspiration, as always! oxoxo
