Happy 45th Anniversary, Hero Arts!

Hero Arts Show & Tell Celebration ~ 45th Anniversary

I've been stamping since 70s'? when I was in elementary school in Japan. In their culture, "stamping" for the new year cards has been common ever since.  
I saw this stamp in Tokyo, Japan, early 90s'. I wanted to make Christmas cards and "Peace on Earth" has been my fav. saying, and it was in English! If I'm not mistaken, I found it in a department store, in stationary section, maybe 25+ years ago ...? When I last moved, giving up hundreds of wood mounted rubber stamps, I still couldn't part away from many stamps from 90s' made... and this is the oldest from Hero Arts. I can still stamp and get a good enough impression using a soft cushion underneath of a paper but it became more of a "treasure" than just a rubber stamp to stamp to make a card. I even decorate it wz winter village on the mantle for Christmas sometimes. I stamped in black ink, and colored, and also you can see from the picture that I used color markers to stamp. I usually clean my stamps very well but I don't' recall I had a good ink cleaner in early 90s'... Back then, I wasn't really familiar with Hero Arts but since then, all the stamps I still have from 90s', I have Hero Art's the most, which means, they've been making "masterpieces"!! ❤ They are still making great stamps, wood mounted, unmounted rubber stamps & clear stamps. I just bought the stamp kit of the last month. I love Hero Arts because of the affordable prices with great designs which is also timeless!  

Hope y'all are having a nice weekend!

Happy Easter #3

My last Easter card this year. I made this for my best friend in college. I received these bunny & speech bubble dies from my long time card making friend. I really love the new 6x6 rainbow papers from Lawn Fawn. I used one of those papers to die cut the grass, too. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  

I really want to stamp this egg image from Essentials by Ellen, and used their sentiment inside of the card 😊

Hope y'all had a wonderful Easter! 
Thank you for stopping by my blog today.

This is my 2nd card, and for my fellow card maker/"mouse" family who sent me this bunny peeps die!! I just love this die ❤ She knows me like 15 years, and so yes, she knows that I love peeps! lol I used new Lawn Fawn's 6x6 rainbow paper, sentiment ,and the colored eggs stamp from Essential by Ellen. I also used the scallop frame die from MFT.

"HOPPY" Easter #1

Happy Easter!
I made this card for my godmother. The front is covered by all Lawn Fawn products; egg dies, glitter papers & speckled paper. I didn't want to add anything else on the front cuz it's already pretty much festive...
So, I decided to decorate inside, with the sentiment I planned to place on the front.
I love this bear from Essentials by Ellen and its "wears." 😃 I used MFT's grass die to decorate a bit more. I used Altenew stamps for the cherry blossoms and colored them in with Zig watercolor blush. I thought the front & inside design came together. 

Have a wonderful Easter Sunday! ❤
