Hero Arts weekly challenge - Holiday cards

Nice to get a move on with the Christmas cards. Here are a couple of entries to the Hero Arts website.

This first card is using the tree I used in my last posts - I just got a 'coup d'inspiration' so to say and it was made in no less than 10 minutes. Think I will make more of these. The snow is made with a SU! stamp dated from 1997 which I bought via a lady from Two Peas a couple of years ago. I wanted to create a scene I could call 'Peace'.

This second card is made using the stamp 'Sketchbook flowers' from HA. I happened to see it on sale so I didn't hesitate! It is quite multi-functional, so I made the investment.


  1. very pretty Christmas cards; I am making mine right now; using blue also! It's fun to make cards while getting ready for a possible hurricane.

  2. Both beautiful cards! The blue one is just wow to me. Great job


  3. I would have never have thought of that tree stamp for winter. You did a mravelous job with your scene...beautiful.
    Love the shabby chic look on your second one, too. As always, the cut out flowers make it pop.

  4. Absolutely beautiful...I love that stamp !

  5. Lovely! I like that stamp. Haven't seen it here. I didn't even realize the pearls were on the stamp. I just thought they were a beautiful touch. :)
