I have four cards using pieces from the Hero Arts kit but I have also added in several add-ons.  This first card showcases the new Smile Stamp and Cut along with the Bold Graphic Confetti Die....

Untitled

I did a little ink blending on the background, then added the Confetti die over the top in vellum.  I added the "smile" die and sentiments on the card front with a few little dew drops for detail.  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Every Which Way Stencil grabbed my attention and, of course, I saw it and thought it needed a rainbow....

Untitled

I used some Distress Oxides to create the background and then added that gorgeous hello die cut to the front of the card.  I grabbed a few more dew drops...well...because I want to use them on every card.  :)  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I adore the Hello There sentiment from the kit stamp set.  I inked it up with a Hero Arts Ombre ink pad and then colored over the shadow with a black pen just for a different look. 

Untitled

I used the confetti image from the kit stamp set in a light gray in the background and then went back in with one of the stars inked up in black.  I added a couple mats under the sentiment and then popped it up on fun foam to finish off the card.  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Finally my last card...

Untitled

I used the Alphabet Window Fancy Die with a pice of alcohol inked up yupo paper.  I love all the color in this.  This die would make the best teacher card so I added the "thank you" die in black cardstock.

And, of course, I'm loving the first 2 card backgrounds. That graphic confetti die in vellum is a nice touch over that colourful background. Then there's that every which way stenciled background. Gorgeous!! I'm regretting not buying it. No matter how it's done it looks amazing!! Next time I guess!
