Color Wednesday #20 & Hero Arts Stamp Your Story Blog Hop

Hi all! Today’s post is serving double duty in that it’s both another Color Wednesday video (#20 to be exact), and I’m also taking part in the Hero Arts Stamp Your Story Blog Hop! If you’re following along the hop, you might have just come from Lisa Spangler’s blog. :)

The Stamp Your Story line of products from Hero Arts has a very playful and artistic look to it. Super cute! I know a lot of art journalers will love this line, but cardmarkers will love it too! You can see the entire line HERE.

For my card today, I used the My Favorite stamp set

And the Happy Thoughts wood mount stamp set…

I also used Inktense Pencils to swipe color across the card…
