Hero Arts Week- Day Three

Hi and welcome back! Sorry I am posting so late! Can barely keep my eyes open! I was trying to load a video to you tube for a technique that I did on one of today's card but it is giving me trouble so I might just do a week of videos next week and continue this fun! What do you think?

Before I start sharing, the winner of the HA flowers from yesterday's post is LUCILLE! Congrats! Email me with your address so I can get your goodies to you! :)

ETA...I've had many emails and questions about leaving a comment. You only have to leave a comment once. If you left a comment twice because you were worried it didn't go through, I just put your name into the bowl once. I have to moderate comments before they are published which takes a little time. Thanks!

First up is the project for the stamp set spotlight and it focuses on this ADORABLE set....
I took some American Crafts patterned paper (Dear Lizzy collection...love her designs!) and used that as my card because AC patterned paper has a solid on the inside which is perfect for card making....
(Did you see those "highlights" in her hair? I made those with a glitter pen. Hard to see but it looks cute in real life)

To create the thought bubble, I punched a scalloped circle punch towards the top of the card. Traced the inside with a black marker to give it some definition, added some circles to the thought bubble to complete the image, and stamped a greeting from THIS set inside. Now, on to the project that is linked to the prize for today....I made embellishments with SHRINKY DINKS! Oh, you have NO idea how much fun this was. Probably won't sleep tonight making more. LOL My mind is racing with ideas!
Here is a close up shot of the shrinky dinks turned embellishments. Before I placed the middle flower in the oven, I punched two tiny holes in the center to create a button! It's hard to see but there is some string in the center......Oh, the possibilities! You can find that yummy green note card HERE and that yummy punch color card HERE. They come in mixed packs so you get different colors of cards in one pack. The "you make me smile" sentiment (one of my favorites) is from THIS great set.

Speaking of buttons, that is the give away for the day! How would you like to win some of these Clear Buttons from Hero Arts? ...... If so, just leave a comment on this post and I will draw a winner tomorrow!

Okay off to go make more shrinky dinks...I mean sleep...ha!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love how you used the scalloped punch for the little girls thought bubble and then put the sentiment inside...very creative!

I remember using shrinky dinks as a kid-never thought about using them on my cards!
