Which do I choose? It's so hard! I found this totally cool challenge called One-Layer Simplicity Challenge and this is their first challenge. And boy, this is a challenge to me (and probably most stampers). When I first started stamping (20 years ago), that is all I did, one layer stamping. The big deal with the heat embossing. It's so funny to think about it now when there is SO much more out there.
For both cards I used the same stamp. It's from Hero Arts and I love, love it! I made a card earlier that I posted earlier using that stamp. It's pretty versatile, see?
This card I copied from the Hero Arts blog. It was too adorable to not give it a try. I used the dauber on this card and it makes it look like the lanterns are glowing.
Then I thought I would try using this stamp and white heat embossing. Using the daubers again making this nice rainbow effect. The stamps inside the garland are the stamps that I took off the wood a couple weeks ago. Just the right size for this project. The 'you' came from Hero Arts too.
The challenge was fun and most definitely a challenge. I look forward to doing this challenge again.
Thanks for stopping by!
