SC + Hero Arts Blog Hop

I've been waiting for MONTHS to share with you this stamp release and I'm so glad that day is finally here. Studio Calico has collaborated with Hero Arts to bring you top-quality stamps that are perfect for cardmakers and scrapbookers alike. To our current customers, thanks for all the feedback on which stamps you've liked best and wanted to revisit. We've taken your advice and don't worry, if you don't see everything you wanted just yet, let us know! We may already have it in the works, and if not, we might put it in the works!

For this card, I used the new Autumn Press 6x6 paper pad along with the white Mister Huey's Mist and the new Calico Shine...obviously layered over the ampersand mask. Then, I stamped the phrase with staz-on. The cloud was made using white zing powder on white cardstock, then adding ink with my ink blending tool & punching with Fiskars Large Cloud punch.
This card was super simple. I used the Silhouettes set and the Alpha background. The Silhouette's pieces layer and are 3 different stamps so you can make the phrase, head, and patterned circle all different colors. LOVE THAT! After it was all said and done, I wish I would have thought to use Pink Glitter Zing for my girl there. (the buttons are chipboard and are from the new Memoir collection.)
This is my favorite stamped item...I was so proud of myself for this. Again, I used White Zing Embossing Powder, this time on a shipping tag. After that, I used 2 different color inks and my ink blending tool to create the orange look. Then, I stamped "hooray" and added the little bits and pieces. Wouldn't this look awesome on a birthday gift?

Be sure to return to the StudioCalico blog to enter your response there for a chance to win a fabulous prize. Also, be sure to come back tomorrow...begin at the SC blog...for another chance to win plus lots more fabulous designs using the SC + HA stamps!
