New Cards

Hi everyone,

These are cards I will be doing at my monthly workshop:

I just love Sugar Nellie Stamps.  This one has the face of an angel.
Skins:  E00, E01 and E02
Hair:  Y11, Y32 and E99
Eyes:  B12
Lips:  R81
Cheeks and Shirt:  R81
Shirt:  B02 and B04

I always do 2 House Mouse stamps - this one I chose because
I love the little guy smelling the flower.

Mice - Skin:  R01 and R20
Fur:  C2 and C4
Leaves and Stem:  G05 and G07
Flower:  RV63 and RV55

This is a daisy stamp that is very simple.  I built the card around the daisy.

Daisy:  Y04 and YR15
Inside of Daisy:  RY14 and E29

I chose this stamp because this little guy looks like he is having
a blast playing in the leaves.

Mouse - skin:  R01 and R20
Fur:  C2 and C4
Leaves:  Y04, YR14, G94, G99 and Gold Glitter pen

Hero Arts

Today was a totally awesome experience.  I got to take two classes from Shari Carroll of Hero Arts at my favorite scrapbooking store - The Keepsake Element.  We made a ton of cards.  As  indicated earlier, I am working on an antiquated computer since my hard drive blew.  My son has an old processor he is kind enough to let me use, but it doesn't allow me to upload photos.  So, I will take pictures of the cards we made and upload them from my work computer.  We did some different techniques that I have not done before so it was a worthwhile day!

Shari was very personable and funny.  If you get a chance to look her up she has several videos out on her various techniques.  She is well known for her collage art.  She developed "color layering" and "color blending" techniques for Hero Arts.
