I'm so excited for all of these new products and have been having so much fun creating with them. For my project today I decided to use the new set, Hello Gorgeous...



I love everything about this set and couldn't wait to ink it up. I created a set of 3 cards using a few of the images and sentiments. Let's jump right in...


Pink, aqua and yellow are the colors I chose to work with today. I love this color combo...so bright and cheery. After choosing my card-stock, I cut each one to measure 4.25 x 5.5. Using the wood circle image in the stamp set, I stamped each one in the ink colors below to create my backgrounds.


Tide Pool, Ultra Pink and Butter Bar from Hero Arts.


Next came my sentiment strips. I cut 3 strips of white card-stock to measure 1.75 x 4.25. I picked one of the floral images and stamped each one in black ink and then colored them in using Copic markers.

After my flowers were all colored in, I stamped my sentiments. 'Hello' cards are my absolute favorite to send out, so I knew immediately that the 'Hello' sentiment was what I wanted to use on these cards.

Once they were all stamped, I simply attached each one to the front of my card bases. To finish each one I added a few clear dew drops and diamonds.


I hope you enjoyed my project for the hop...so happy you stopped by! Be sure to keep hopping along to see what these talented ladies created...

Wishing you a wonderful Friday!
