Swallowtail Butterfly with Ombre Spring Brights

I had so much fun making this card using a new Hero Arts Ink Ombre Spring Brights on kraft card stock.   I swiped it down a piece, then die cut the Swallowtail Butterfly and also used it to stamp the flowers and leaves from the Let Love Grow stamp set.   I also used a little white ink for accents, black ink and some circle dies to frame the sentiment which is also from that same step set.  I finished it off with some diamond gems on the butterfly.  Here’s a list of the supplies I used:

Spiral Notes (Forest Scene, Candy Stripe & You’re So Lovely)

Hi there, it’s Angie here with a fun quick project that makes a great gift or a fun item to use yourself!  It’s a small spiral notebook from the discount store covered with fun paper, stamping, ribbon and gems!

For the book on the right, I used Hero Arts “You’re So Lovely” CL949 stamp set with a few inks on some patterned paper, then adhered it to the front cover and back cover of a small spiral notebook.  I added a couple of Hero Arts gems and some thin ribbon around the edges to finish it off.

For the book on the left, I used some brand new products and an older set.  The new products were Hero Arts Forest Scene Stencil SA078 and Hero Arts Candy Stripe Bold Prints Background Stamp CG681.  I used the stencil with Hero Arts Ombre Ink in Mint to Green for the top section and the background stamp for the bottom section.  I added ribbon and the sentiment was stamped on white card stock is from an older stamp and die set called Hero Arts Handmade Tags DC139.

I use one of these notebooks all the time, carry it in my purse, and always have something to jot notes in.  (And they make great gifts too!)

Hope you will take the time to enter our challenge this month here: Color it in!  Just remember to use one main Hero Arts product to be eligible to win the $25 gift certificate to the store!  Woohoo!
