Saturday Night Card Crafting

I really had the bug to make some cards tonight. Do you ever get in those moods where you just want to sit at your craft table and just create?? That was my mood tonight. My DS fell asleep at 8:00 and my DH went to the gym so that meant I had some "me" time. Making cards is what I love to do when I have this kind of time. I can't clean the house cuz' my DS is sleeping and I have to be quiet so what better to do than make stuff??!!?? Anyway, here's what I came up with during my quiet time. Thank you so much for stopping by to visit. I hope you enjoy what I have to show you tonight.

On the first 3 cards I used some new Hero Arts stamps I bought at my LSS. I've had the new Hero Arts catalog for a while now and absolutely love most of the samples in there so I finally broke down and bought some of their stamps.
This set is called Dots and Lines. I also used the SU! set called One of A Kind. I used some old SU! DSP for the background and Regal Rose, So Saffron, Certainly Celery and Tempting Turquoise Card Stock. Rose Red, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise and Basic Black Classic Pads. The ribbon is the SU! Purely Pomegranate Double Stitched Ribbon and I finished it off with the Signo Gel White pen to make a few extra white dots on the background paper. This paper already has some white dots but I needed more. This card was made with the Hero Arts Flourish Lily stamp and SU!'s Sincere Salutations stamp set. The card stock is Only Orange, Real Red and Whisper White. I colored the Lily with Real Red, Only Orange, Summer Sun, Glorious Green and Green Galore Stampin' Write Markers. The flower outline and sentiment are stamped with the Basic Black Classic pad. The ribbon is SU!'s Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain and the rhinestones are some Swarovski Crystals I got at Michael's. I just used the markers to blend each color. I started with the Real Red then blended with the Only Orange and Summer Sun. I did the same with the Glorious Green and Green Galore markers.This card uses another Hero Arts stamp called Sketchbook Flowers. I also used the sentiment from SU!'s Sweet Dreams set. Card stock is Lovely Lilac, Regal Rose and Whisper White. I colored the flowers & stamped ribbon with Pink Passion, Regal Rose, Lovely Lilac, Lavender Lace, Almost Amethyst, Green Galore and Glorious Green. The sentiment was stamped using Lovely Lilac and the outline of the flower was stamped with the Basic Black Classic Pads. I used SU's Bold Brights buttons and some white hemp I had laying around. I blended the colors with the markers.
This last one has very little stamping. The only stamping is on the topiary pots using the small flourish stamp in the Stampin' Up! Priceless set with the Going Grey Classic Pad. Card stock used is Ballet Blue, Wild Wasabi, Green Galore, Certainly Celery, Only Orange, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Real Red, Creamy Caramel and Whisper White. I wrote the Welcome sentiment with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. I used the Vintage Antique Brass Brads from SU! and I also used the Boho Blossoms, Rectangle, 1/8" and 1/16" Circle punches. The topiary pots are also punched with a retired punch and I can't think of the name of it right now.
