I Love Hero Arts-Day Four-GIVEAWAY

Hello! I've decided to do dedicate a few weeks of the year to feature different stamp companies I love. I thought it was fitting to showcase HERO ARTS first, since they were my first "love" and what sparked my love of stamping. (You can find Day One HERE, Day Two HERE, and Day Three HERE)

For today's cards, I used THIS Color Layering Stamp Set from Hero Arts...

...and stamped the first layer of the flamingo using THIS ink and the second layer in THIS pink ink. I used black ink for the beak and eye and the same pink ink I used for the body on the legs. I die-cut the image out using THIS coordinating die. I stamped a coordinating sentiment using black ink on to one of THESE ovals and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder to add some shine.

I used patterned paper from THIS paper pad to finish off the cards as well as some of THESE enamel hearts...
THIS scallop die makes a great card base too...

A closer look...

  4. How cute! The bright colors and patterns are so fun. I've always loved flamingos! When I was in elementary school we had to research an animal and create it. I remember my dad and I making a flamingo out of PVC pipe and spray painting it hot pink. Hmm happy news... My husband got to go into work late today so we had some extra time together :) Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. For starters, let me just say how pretty in pink that flamingo is!! Incredible card! Now for what made me smile (actually....almost brought tears of joy). After having my computer crash (which had all my bookwork from my business, along with all my design files) and dealing with a small audit, I was expecting a big audit any day. The day came, when that inevitable government envelope showed up and I was cringing at the thought of opening it.......I slowly held my breath and tore open the envelope........What?!!! A big cheque?! No Audit?! You can't imagine what a relief that was for me. It was the best news I had in months!

  16. There is so much happy news if we look for it, isn't there? We live out in the country now and I love our local paper because it's full of good news! My own personal happy news is how happy and thankful we are to be living in the country at the lake. God is great! I like your cards and the black and white striped background is so cool!

  23. Gorgeous cards, Heather! I just love these Flamingos! My son came home from a soccer game and smiled all over his face because he made a goal for his team. If he's happy that makes me happy, too :-)

  24. Flamingos are such fascinating birds, their colours so cheery, their shape unique and the actions curious ... FABULOUS, just like your cards!!!
    Layering stamps fascinate me too, they add amazing texture and dimension without bulk. Now that I have a MISTI on the way, I look forward to trying my hand at more adventurous stamping like this :)
    Happy news - you have perfect timing Heather, we got HAPPY news in the form of a phone call from my niece, asking if it was OK for her brother and her to come visit ... they live nearly 4 hours away from us so it's not like they could drive all the way here just on the offchance ... of course we said YES, I'm smiling just thinking about all the {{{HUGS}}} coming our way :)
    THANK YOU for the INKY INSPIRATION and the chance to win!!!

  25. Those flamingos are such a fun layering set! The black backgrounds you chose create such a striking contrast to the gorgeous pinks in the flamingos. These cards are the kind you just can't quite looking at - my eyes keep getting drawn in. Beautiful!

    Good news? My service dog no longer has Lyme disease! Yay!!! So thankful the vet picked up on it before it caused harm for my sweet partner, Sadie!
