Freeze Time layout & a card

I was so excited when I opened my Hero Arts package and got to play with the cutest stamps.  For my first project I did a super quick layout.

I used DCWV fabric paper, QN09, 389-18-33, Hero Arts “watch gears” and Metallic Gold Wow embossing powders.

I cut out my fabric paper to the desired size, layered on my ribbons added my picture and embossed the stamp on some transparency, making sure not to overheat.  I love the results

Then I made a cute card with the Hero Arts “good Friends” and “ZigZag Cupcake” stamp.   I stamped the cupcake on white cardstock first and then cut around the cake part, then I added sprinkles.  I then stamped the cupcake wrapper on a piece of blue scrap paper and embossed it with Cotton Candy Wow embossing powder then pieced them back together. I used FNN34 and 367-58-01 layered and the sentiment over the top.

I hope you have enjoyed my quick projects today.  I can’t wait to see what the rest of the team has come up with.
