Hero Arts Inspiration from Lisa Spangler!

Hi bloggers! Happy Wednesday to you all! Today, I'm thrilled to bring to you TWO amazing cards made by crafter extraordinaire (and dear sweet friend of Simon), Lisa Spangler! Lisa whipped up these 2 beauties by inking up some brand NEW Hero Arts stamps from the 2013 collection! Let's take a look!

 
I love how it looks like the owls are 'snuggling'.  :)  For a brief tutorial from Lisa on how to make this card and the ingredients, see below the full shot of the card!

Ink woodgrain with tea dye and vintage photo, mist and stamp. For the owls, color on the rubber with distress markers then mist and stamp. The heart is stamped twice -- once in white pigment ink directly on the card and embossed in white, then again in worn lipstick and cut out -- really makes it pop!!! The eyes have black enamel accents and then after it dries put a dot of white! I learned that from Kathy Racoosin! Love her! (We do, too!!!)


 Isn't this palette so bright and pretty?! Just like Lisa! For a brief tutorial from Lisa on how to make this card and the ingredients, see below the full shot of the card!

Stamp the dots in worn lipstick on mandarin notecard. Ink flower with distress markers, mist, and stamp on white cardstock and round corners. Layer to punch and round corners. Adhere to notecard. Stamp flower again and cut out, then ink the edges with worn lipstick with a foam ink applicator tool. Adhere to card with a foam dot.
