Hero Arts Inspiration Week - Day Five

Hey everyone!!
I cannot believe we are at day 5 already - this week has flown by!
I have had so much fun sharing projects this week featuring some of my favourite Hero Arts stamps and products. I hope I have inspired you to head to that craft room this weekend and stamp like crazy!! ;-)

For my final project I decided to create a card that uses one of my all time favourite Hero Arts stamps - Three Ferns. I also used another favourite product of mine - Verdigris embossing powder from Ranger. This is the coolest embossing powder ever and if you've never seen it or used it I definitely encourage you to put it on that must have list! A photo on a computer screen does not even come close to showing how great this looks in real life.

So to all of you who have visited my blog this week:

Thank You

Hero Arts 'Three Ferns' Stamp
Hero Arts 'Thank You Sayings' Stamp Set
Hero Arts Earth Designer Papers 
Hero Arts Eggshell Layering Paper
Hero Arts Black Ink
Other: Ranger Verdigris Embossing Powder, Ranger Distress Ink, Neenah Solar White Cardstock, Jillibean Soup Button, May Arts Twine, WorldWin Cardstock

On this card I embossed the three ferns on a piece of eggshell layering paper and inked around it with Ranger Distress ink. I then cut it down to about 4" x 2 3/4" and adhered it to a brown piece of cardstock so it would stand out on the designer paper card base.
Then I added a stamped banner, a button and some twine.

To end this week I want to say thank you to Hero Arts for allowing us stampers and crafters to create cards, layouts and projects with products that are amazing in both quality and design. I could probably do an inspiration year and never get to to fully show what your company has to offer. And I especially want to thank the people behind the product. Hero Arts has some of the kindest, nicest, talented people I have ever met - thank you Hero Arts! :-)

I also want to thank Simon Says Stamp for being an amazing online store that treats their customers so great and gives us a place to buy all of these great Hero Arts products (and much more!).  I seriously cannot recommend a better place to shop online. Always the latest and greatest product, great prices, awesome shipping and amazing people - thank you Simon Says Stamp! :-)

And last but not least, thank you to everyone who stopped by this week! I had so much fun and can't wait to do another inspiration week again soon!!
And of course don't forget about the giveaway! Just leave a comment on this post (and every post this week) for a chance to win a Hero Arts stamp set of your choice. I will announce the winner here on my blog sometime tomorrow.

Happy Friday!
Steph :-)
