Here is a photo card for my daughter I've made for participating to this weeks Hero Arts challenge here.
I have actually created a frame using my border punch and i glued some stamped and embossed images on the frame.

Stamps used: Hero Arts Clear Sparkle "Mushrooms" , CL306

The coloring of the stamps was done by using distressing Tim Holtz ink and a foam blending tool. I have also used foam dimensionals for a 3d effect.

Here are a couple of more detailed photos.

A cherry hello!

There are some days that I can make three or four cards in a row and I like them all....
Well today was NOT one of these days.... no inspiration at all...
So here is what I finally did after hours of cutting and clipping and coloring and throwing away projects....
It is going to take part in a couple of challenges here and here

The card is made by using the "Designer fruit" stamp set by Hero Arts ( CL320)
I have stamped the front of the card using Versa Mark and I embossed using clear embossing powder. The cherries are painted using Tim Holtz distressing inks and I have also used a circle punch and brown silk ribbon from my stash.
