One of my favourite blogs is Jennifer Mcguire's blog. She does absolutely awesome cards using loads of different techniques so when I watched one of her How To videos on this technique I had to have a play. Especially as I had just ordered a whole heap of Hero Arts stamps (a new stamp obsession is born) which included some of the stamps used by Jennifer and Tami Hartley.
The first card I made is using the gorgeous Hero Arts Silhouette Meadow Flowers stamp which I embossed and inked using my Tim Holtz Distress inks (Peeled paint, Milled Lavendar and Dusty Cord). I layered this image on some purple and green cardstock, added some ribbon and stamped the sentiment (also Hero Arts )
The second card was made using the Hero Arts Poppy Background stamp, which I inked using my Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Barn Door and Peeled Paint), I mounted the image on some green card stock, then mounted it on some Penny Black paper from my stash. I added a few pearls and used the same Hero Arts sentiment. Below is a piccie of all my new Hero Arts goodies (plus my beloved Hedgie Stamp from Penny Black)
