With the arrival of new stamps....

Ah new stamps how I love thee:-) Nothing beats the smell of fresh stamps to get the creativity flowing, I managed to get my hands on some gorgeous Hero arts goodies. Most of them from the new catalog, mmmmm:-)

Also sharing some good news while I have your attention, I was one of the lucky winners of the Hero Arts January Challenge.
And I plan to get a few of the new stamps with my prize;-) yay!! So many gorgeous stamps to pick from... But I have finally narrowed it down to a small list of faves. Will share them with you as soon as they arrive!

For now though, here's a few that I purchased:-)

I adore this pretty flower and bees stamp set, been wanting it for quite a while, and I finally have it.. So I was pretty excited to get busy stamping..
I stamped the wood grain on the entire front of the card, the window was cut out and the cloud background was adhered behind it. I doodled along the edges for a better defined look.

Everything else was then stamped, coloured and cut out and finally, adhered to the card front.

Here is a side view that shows the depth that was created using dimensional adhesive..
