I love.....Hero Arts

Morning Folks.....some cards to share with you.... using my fabulous new Hero Arts Stamps......I have been a big big fan of Hero Arts since I first discovered stamping and thanks to them it became a rather serious addiction...I have never counted the Hero Arts stamps I own....but I have a lot.....and just can't stop buying....they are such an innovative Company...produce great quality stamps and unfortunately for my bank balance....just keep producing more and more fabulous designs.

I was smitten the minute I saw
this new Heart Flourish's gorgeous and I know
I am going to use it over and over again...great for backgrounds
Paper: Coredinations
Basic Grey...Granola Collection
Image: Hero Arts Heart Flourish
inked with TH Distress Inks....Faded Jeans and Walnut Stain
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Script
Flowers: Prima Artful Collage
Button: Basic Grey...Granola
Sentiments: Hero Arts: Cute Letters
Twine from my stash
I bought the Scattered Leaves Clear Stamp Set
just to get this gorgeous image...great stand alone
stamp or can be used to make backgrounds
Papers: Basic Grey Granola Collection
Image: Hero Arts Scattered Leaves Stamp Set
Flowers: Prima
Ribbon: Maya Road
Gems: Hero Arts
Sentiment: Clear Stamp Set
And both stamps would be perfect for
my favourite Distress Resist Embossing Technique
Why do I get the feeling you are going to be seeing lots and lots of cards in the next few months featuring these beauties....well off for our morning walk....then must go and do some food shopping because there are inconsiderate folks living here who want to eat......and then I need to finish my card for Penny Black Saturday......yes....real last minute stuff this week but will be back later with my card for this week's challenge over at Stampin Chic
Hugs Kath xxxxx
P.S. Car mirror is fixed.......and my crafty stash purse is poorer by £70....must admit I thought it would be only took 15 minutes to do... the labour was £13.00....fair enough...but what I couldn't believe...the blinking little bit of glass cost £ many Hero Arts stamps could I have bought for that....well that's life....c'est la vie as our French cousins say.


  1. Stunning cards! I really love the designs. Caroline x

  2. Morning Kath - beautiful cards as always. I too love Hero Arts. My main collection of stamps are theirs and Penny Black. Never bought a stamp I couldn't use for ever from either of them.

    Looking forward to tomorrows PB challenge.

    Well your mirror has eaten into your craft fund - but if you had "clipped" the wing of your motor instead that would have cost much more to have fixed. So have you saved money???? Ummm could be you now have spare money instead!! LOL

    Have a great day. Love Jules xx

  3. Hiya Kath what a Fantastic card love the layout and the colour combo is fab.
    Paula xxxx

  4. Morning Kath oh I have to agree about hero arts however I don't own enough of them :D these creations are beauties i must say. Love them both but the second one has that edge to it. Glad to hear the mirror is fix but boo at the cost of the glass do these people not realise we have serious stash to buy lol. Have a smashing day, hugs. Woof to the budster.

  5. Me again lol xxx Love these colours - they are so pretty!! And the flowers are gorgeous. I love Hero Arts as well, althoguth I dont have tha many of them. But they are great value and they stamp up so nicely. Biggest hugs to my dearest friend xxxxxxx

  6. These cards are absolutely beautiful Kath!! I NEED these stamps now! Stunning work! Jane x x

  7. I agree, these stamps are just so versatile. Love the swirls which you've brought to life with the flower embellishments. Hugs from Desire

  8. Fraid I've got a few Hero Arts. That flourish reminds me of a background called Raindrops and Swirls which Isee is dated 2000. Will have to try a bit of fiddling and masking. Just the ink to consider! I tend to add up all my expenses in terms of numbers of stamps. New clothes? naah charity shop will do.I'll take the stamps instead. BettyXXX

  9. Wow thses are two stunning cards how beautiful the colours you have used and the images are fab.
