Fabulous Finds Friday — New Stamps to Adore

When I get a new stamp I’m like a 5-year-old. I can’t wait to ink it up and play,  so my first go-round is usually a quick-and-easy card.

How fun are these two new images from Hero Arts? Dontcha love the “Real Card” stamp? I can see myself using this a LOT!

Hexagonal Background was stamped in Neon Pink; the sentiment was embossed using Zing Teal powder from American Crafts. I love the creamy opaqueness of these powders and I have several zingy neon shades! I believe the cardstock is from Stampin’ Up.

It’s hard to see, but I added some drops of Ranger’s Stickles Diamond to the dots on the Special sign (because Stickles makes everything better!):

I love that I can make quick cards using a few basics.

New Year, Bright Beginnings

It’s the new year … and it’s been gloomy here in normally sunny Southern California. Which made it a perfect day for stamping something bright! Thank heavens I just read a newspapere article that said neon was still hot.

I pulled out my Hero Arts Neon stamp pads and some new-ish images and played … Nothing too exotic, just a slap-dash bit of fast and easy stamping to satisfy my stamping urge.

Been anxious to put this fun new set to work … Homey Patterns from Basic Grey and Hero Arts. Aren’t the house divine?  The pennants were mounted on a piece of baker’s twine from Close To My Heart.

Don’t these fish cry out for neon? This card needs a greeting, but again, it satisfied my stamping jones. Images are from Rubber Stamp Plantation. Tape is from EK Success.

Thanks for putting up with me!
