You Can Do It with Heather H.

Heather has created three amazing BACK TO SCHOOL projects with some creative flair!!!  Make sure and leave some LOVE and comment because we will be offering some BLOG CANDY throughout the month from the comments left for our amazing DESIGN TEAM!

Good morning! Heather here from Houses Built of Cards - to share a few cards with you using the new stamp set for August - LOVE the way this set gives a little nod to back to school, but a little less traditional!!!

The first thing that caught my eye in this set, was that fun "smartie" stamp set:

I created a watercolor wash for the background, then stamped and fussy cut out those candies - I just left them white and attached them to the front panel, then added a layer of Glossy Accents to make them look more like real candies! Added some American Crafts pattern paper, a pre-made bow, and some gold thread.

Next up, I actually raided my scrap bin to put this card together:

Stamped and fussy cut again, then heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of brown cardstock. Attached the sentiment panel and the pencils with foam adhesive.

And finally - I was coloring up this sweet little image, when all of a sudden it occurred to me that it would be fun to make an interactive card!

I used some distress ink to ground the image, then stamped, colored with Copics, and fussy cut out the image before attaching with only a brad - that way it totally rocks back and forth! Fun, right? Hippo down:

And hippo up:

Also added some Basic Grey pattern paper and some jute twine.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!


FABULOUS coloring, embossing, Glossy Accents and three dimensional stamping with moving parts Heather!  Make sure and comment....YOU could be the winner of some BLOG CANDY!
