Hero Arts has a fabulous range of garden and flower stamps that will allow you to create an ethereal background scene for your paper projects and photos. For this layout Louise has repeated stamped flower images using the Wildflower Garden stamp, to create a garden like look for her layout background.
Chris has heat embossed the Hero Arts Magical Background cling stamp in clear embossing powder onto black cardstock for a subtle background and then stamped the flags from Studio Calico/Hero Arts Stamp set 'Hooray' onto pattern paper and mounted them in the foreground. Simple, but stunning!
Chris has longed to play with the Three Butterflies cling set from Hero Arts and so was completely delighted with the results of colouring in the large butterfly image with coloured pencils. They make such a stunning accent on these cards which also feature 'Old Letter' cling stamp and 'To a special friend' wood sentiment stamp.
Why not create a one of a kind gift bag with your favourite stamp set! Chris has used the Clear 'Sew me flower jewel' set with the small butterfly image from the 'Three Butterflies' cling set. Stamp directly onto pattern paper and then cut out the images and use 3D adhesive to piece all the bits back together. Finish off with a little Stickles by Ranger.
The lovely Virginia Lu has shared with us her gorgeous card created using the Hero Arts Right at Home Clear Design set of stamps and Basic Grey Piccadilly range. Here is a quick tutorial from Virginia on how to create this card: "Make card from card stock. Stamp the house and clouds in assorted paper, cut out the images. Tear a piece of green pattern paper and cut with the fringe scissor, curl up the “grass” with a toothpick. Assemble the houses and clouds, adhere with pop dots. Stamp sentiment in punch chalk ink , add pearl.”
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely homely card with us Virginia!

Next I stamped a long botanical grass or willow image from Hero Arts CL428 Earth Flowers using Wild Honey Distress Ink. Then I stamped a spiky fern leaf from Hero Arts CL457 Real Leaves using Rusty Hinge Distress Ink. The “You are someone special” sentiment is from Hero Arts CL578 Good Friends and is stamped using Faded Jeans Distress Ink. The butterflies are from Hero Arts CL383 Antique Engravings and are stamped on Glossy Paper using Ranger Archival Ink in jet black."
