An adorable elephant and my favorite stamp of all time...

Good afternoon everyone!

I think my "Happy Spring" card worked...it is really starting to feel like Spring. Well, temporarily, that is. It is supposed to get cold again. But I have to say, the rain and the sunshine and the 55 degree weather yesterday really inspired me to create a little! Much more than I've been inspired lately. So, I just had to share some of my projects.

The first card is one I made for this week's HeroArts challenge...you have to use your favorite HeroArts product. I still have to upload it the to the gallery, but I wanted to put it on here first!

My favorite Hero Arts stamp is the French Script stamp...and I used it with the French themed collage stamp by HeroArts as well. Oh, and I was so happy when I remembered that my Cuttlebug Script Embossing Folder matched perfectly!

Stamps: Hero Arts Collage Take Time (H4777) and Old French Writing (H2365)
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug Script Texture
Ink: VersaFine Jet Black, ColorBox Chalk Ink Chestnut Roan and Charcoal
Icicle Stickles, Prima Flowers, Clear Rhinestones

I made this next card with stamps from Unity Stamp Co. and Heidi Grace. I stamped the flower image with purple ColorBox Ink (I can't remember the name though...sorry!) and embossed it with clear embossing powder, then used some Stickles to accent the flowers.

Stamps: Unity Stamp Company "Spring in the Mail" and Heidi Grace
Ink: Colorbox and VersaFine Jet Black
Scallop scissors, icicle stickles, clear embossing powder

And the last project I am sharing with you today is the little notebook I covered up. It is one of those $1 notebooks from Michael's, and I covered it with cream cardstock. The stamps are from HeroArts...and they are one of their new releases! I just love these little elephants!!!

Stamps: Hero Arts Elephants (CL280)
Ink: VersaFine Jet Black, Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid, and ColorBox Chalk Inks Olive Pastel, Lavendar, Blue Lagoon, Lipstick, Charcoal, and Orchid Pastel
Patterned Paper: BasicGrey Eva "Noble"
Icicle Stickles, Scalloped edge scissors by ProvoCraft

Well, thanks for looking at all of them! I hope you have a great day!
