Beary Sweet Wishes

Hi Stampers!
Happy Thursday. I didn't get a chance to post yesterday, so I have 2 cards for you today using the Beary Sweet Wishes set by Avery Elle. I LOVE LOVE gummy bears! So I had to have this set. And I had the privilege of meeting Caryn, who designed this set back in January at CHA ( the Avery Elle booth was next to the Chameleon Pens one). She is so awesome! 
I stamped bunch of gummy bears in versamark on some cold pressed watercolor paper and then embossed them with white embossing powder and watercolored them. After that I die cut them and put my cards together. Yep, simple as that.
I hope I inspired you to create something today! 

Check back later today for my 2nd post for today (since I skipped yesterday)

Just a note and playing along with the Hero Arts Challenge

Hi Stampers! 
Happy Tuesday! Today I have another Hero Arts card for you, this time I am using the Mum Stem stamp, again from the new catalog along with a sentiment from the Color Layering Orchid in a pot clear stamp set. I made this card last week while playing with my watercolors and fits perfectly for the new Hero Arts challenge Fabulous Flowers. 
For today's card I started with a piece of water color paper and using my Winsor & Newton professional watercolors I did the background and the splatters. After it was completely dried I stamped the Mum using versamark ink, and then embossed it with Hero Arts White embossing powder. Then I stamped the sentiment. After my panel was ready I die cut it and adhered it with mounting tape onto Desert Storm card stock.
