This one is to be a winner! This is the one I entered in the Hero Arts contest. I used three Hero Arts stamps on this card. The large flower is an embossed Hero Arts flower. I added a center in the flower using a small Hero arts flower stamp. Lastly, I used the forever friends stamp on the top and bottom of the card. The flower was painted on with stamp ink.
This is a third sample in the series. You can't see the stamp well in this picture. I didn't like how it came so close to the flower. This flower was water colored in pencil.
Here is the second sample. I used another friendship stamp. On this flower I glued beads to the center of the flower. My son, Andrew, stated that it looked unprofessional.
I made four samples for the Hero Arts Blog. The requirements were to make a card using a friendship stamp. I also used an embossed large flower stamp also from Hero Arts.

Nursery Rhyme Page

I belong to a scrapping club and our assignment for this session was to create a page based on a nursery rhyme. I chose "Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater". I used the following cartridges from Cricut: Speaking of Fall, Stretch Your Imagination, and My Community. The technique I like best on this card is my finishing touch on the pumpkin. I chalked the edges and it finished if off in a crisp image.
