Hero Arts September Challenge

Hero Arts September Challenge is Autumn or the technique of making a gift bag.  I had to create a few cards for a class I will be teaching and I used my much loved Hero Arts stamps to whip up a few of the stamps. My LSS has a wonderful assortment of the HA stamps .

Here are a few of the cards I am teaching at my LSS that fit right into the Hero Arts Challenge this month:


I love using circles as this was something that always is a bit of a struggle for me in design. I was pleased with the effect.   The background paper is Coordenations and it comes already embossed. Very pretty.


This card was inspired by a card my friend Lisa created from our stamping time together. Her card is here.


This was inspired by my box I created and I just transitioned it into a card and used some lovely Basic Grey Indian Summer papers with some stamping of the Hero Arts Starburst Lace Stamp.

Have a blessed Sunday!

  3. Beautiful fall inspired cards! Fun layout on the BD card, lovin' the circles, may have to borrow that design! The glimmer/color on the leaves look fab and the woodgrain look perfect with those wonderful die cut leaves on your wreath card!

  5. Wow what amazing cards! So fall and so pretty! When I saw your green tree easel card a few posts down I thought of something. You really should make something simular as art for your home. Buy a long narrow black frame and make this again or put it in, you could do the same but different colors with different frames and hang them together. An orange tree one, a yellow, a green and so on. It would be stunning...
