You Are My Everyday Hero -- and Some News to Share!

Hi All,

I soooo love Everyday Heroes collection!  The colors in the pallet are so gorgeous together.  My sample for this week's post shows how this seemingly masculine collection can be used for the opposite gender too!

Super simple -- the paper does all the work!  The background and sentiment are from the Everyday Heroes paper collection, just one 5-3/4" square panel.  I stamped and embossed the leaves and flowers in gold embossing powder onto more of the paper from the paper collection and die cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I did just a little bit of shaping (I didn't even layer the flowers this time) and added some copper colored German Glass Glitter and that was it!! 

There's a matching mirror to go with this card but that will be next week!!  All in good time... :)

The Heartfelt Creations products I used on this card:
HCD1-758 Botanical Wings Die
HCPC-3651 Botanical Rose Cling Stamp Set
HCDP1-253 Everyday Hero Paper Collection
And on another note (the "news"), if you're a regular over on Splitcoast Stampers website, then this will make sense to you!  Today is my "big reveal" day as one of the new "Dirty Dozen" for the next 6 months!!  It's a thrill and an honor for me since I spent just about all of my formative stamping years over there!!  It is my home sweet "stamping" home and I am overjoyed to be inducted into the Dirt Pile!!  My work will be featured along with 11 other very talented ladies once a month for the paying public! Yup, you gotta pay the dues to see the artwork LOL!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!  I hope you found it worth your while as I am grateful you took the time to visit!
