Few cards and.....

Hello Everyone!!!!
I'm still playing with the Hero Arts/Basic Grey stamp set......really love it!
Did I mention about THIS....check Basic Grey Blog!!!!
I created two cards with the same set and I think it can be used several more ways too!
The first card was inspired by Lilypad card's Virginia's View inspiration( but I was late, challenge ended) really like the colorful rainbow of buttons!!

A CAS card with lots of Distress ink, one favorite stamp set and a few blings & buttons.

This card is for the following challenges..
The Pink Elephant : Clean and simple.
Stamp with Fun :No Eastercard .
A Blog Named Hero: Play favorites
....this HA stamp set is mt current favorite.
Amusing Challenges : Buttons .

Now the next card.....
the same lovely flowers..isn't it!!!

 Just combined Hero Arts stamp with some PTI dies and impression plate.


I used distress ink to color the white embosssed flowers.

This card is for the following challenges..

ColourQ - #130
Sasya sketches: Sketch#109

Paper Pretties : April Showers Bring May Flowers.
Simon Says stamp: Favorite Tool.
...my favorite tools ...Martha Stewart Scoring board, Tim Holtz's Distressing tool, Cuttlebug.
and
A Blog Named Hero: Play favorites
....this HA stamp set is mt current favorite.

Okay!!! I don't know if you all noticed I finally changed my blog header. I want to get a custom blog makeover done but can't afford it right now. The previous blog header was the one I made 2 1/2 years ago.....so I played a little with PSE and created this new one.
Its not something very fancy but it will work for now!

Thanks for peeking!!
