{1.23.2012} Hero Arts fun

Hello Monday…

I’ve been meaning to play in this month’s Hero Arts challenge.

Time is going just too darn fast. I’ve been creating but can’t share any of it yet. Thankfully, I was able to get this card done over the weekend. I was thinking about making a valentine for someone you can’t be with.

I’m mixing some old and new Hero Arts. I loved the sayings in the new Right at Home and thought it would go perfect with the row of houses. I popped up the one house in a heart and added a little punched out xoxo label at the bottom.

The card base is 4 by 5.5 and the popped up panel is hanging over just a bit, but will still fit into a standard size envelope.

That is all from me. Hope you have a lovely day.

patterned paper: Ooh La La for Her {My Mind’s Eye}
stamps: Everyday Sayings, Right at Home, Row of Houses {Hero Arts}
ink: charcoal {Colorbox chalk}, black {Versafine}
die cuts & punches: heart, Journal Plate & Bracket {EK Success}, small heart {Fiskars}
other: sewing machine

    Love this design!!! The technique of layering the same image onto different colors and shapes is something I like to do in my Graphic Design work. Seeing how you used it on your card really inspires me! Terrific card Lisa!
