Hero Arts Butterfly

This card was such fun (and quick!) to make!! Thanks Hero Arts for making such awesome stamps! I heat embossed the image onto ivory cardstock and then distressed it with Tim Holtz distress inks. I used Faber Castell colour pencils to colour the butterfly. Then sentiment is from Stampendous..also heat embossed and cout out with my spellbinder dies.

Birthday candles

I absolutely love the way this card turned out! 
The candles stamp is  a woodblock stamp from Inkadinkado. 
I stamped it onto a kraft card with memento Tuxedo black ink. 
I then stamped it  on a piece of ivory cardstock with versamark embossing ink and  heat embossed it with clear embossing powder from Judikins.  
The panel , I cut with Spellbinders nestabilities oval and ovel scallop dies, and distressed it with Tim Holtz distress inks. 
The sentiment is one of my own and I completed the card with pretty orange and green ribbons from my stash.
Hope you enjoy this card as much as I did.

Happy birthday

I have had this gorgeous stamp for a while...unfortunately I don't have the packaging  and I forgot to record it, so I don't know who it's by. 
Does anyone know? 
It is probably  a Hero Arts cling stamp,  but I'm not sure. 
The sentiment is from Stampendous.
I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress inks.

After struggling for a bit, I came up with this design. I quite like the way it turned out. What do you think?
