A Deep Dive into Hero Arts + 2 More Cards

This week I pulled out my MMH kit from April, 2019 and set to work playing around with this kit to make a bunch of cards that I will enter in the Stay Crafty with Hero Challenge #10: Create a Scene.  I was so excited to get this kit last year, but haven't done much with it....until this week.

This card is kind of busy, so I left a sentiment off.  I will stamp something inside when I send it.  I had Venice at night in mind for this scene.

I decided to leave the background white on this next card, another scene from Venice, this one during the day.

Next up are some cards I am also entering at A Blog Named Hero to Combine Old and New.

On this card, a scene in a Venice neighborhood, the new is the Venetian Neighborhood cling and old is the happy birthday sentiment from Chalkboard Birthday.

On this Venice scene, the new(ish)  is the MMH April, 2019 kit and old is the birthday sentiment from Chalkboard Birthday.

On this birthday card, the old is the Paper Layering Neighborhood die and the new is the dog and balloon from Birthday Paw-ty.

OK, the last of my Hero Arts cards for today....this one uses the Venice dies as new and the sentiment from Birthday Messages as old (This birthday messages is one of the very first stamps I ever bought, and I still pull it out to use all the time.)

I am also entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #394: Clean and Simple.

Moving on, this card was inspired by the colors and black and white stripes in the inspiration photo at Inspired By...Fresh Morning, the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #377 and Addicted to Stamps and More #394: Clean and Simple.

 Last up is a card to send a friend off onto a road trip adventure.  I made this card using stamped and die cut bits sent to me by my bestie, Kim, so I am entering it at Shopping Our Stash #422: UFO's.  I am also playing along at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Summer Fun (roadtrip adventure) and Addicted to Stamps and More #394: Clean and Simple.

Thanks for Visiting
