Studio Calico + Hero Arts Blog Hop with Shari


Welcome to my stop on the HOP everyone!  I'm so very excited to show you a really fun card I made using these NEW Studio Calico Stamps!  I've used 3 of the fabulous background Clings and one Clear set.  I just LOVE them ALL!!!


I wanted to do something a little different to show you how versatile this stamp set is, so I created a flower from the award stamp and a banner from the ribbon.  FUN!!!   Here's a closer look at the banner.


And here are the new stamps I used... gahhhh so awesome!!!

If you want to jot down the numbers for your future shopping, they are:
ST501 Alphabet Pattern, ST503 Grid Pattern,
ST514 Houndstooth Pattern and ST510 You're The Best (clear set).
Did you see that we at Hero Arts are doing a giveaway? FIVE NEW stamp sets with be given out each day (Monday to Wednesday).  Just leave a comment on each stop in the hop and we’ll pick a random winner from ALL of them! The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to WIN!  Winners will be announced on Saturday, July 16.
And finally...it's time to send you on to the UBER talented April Foster to see what she's cooked up for today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy!

I have closed the comments for this post, the contest winners have been chosen.  You can see them HERE.  Thanks everyone!
