Hero Arts - One More - All The Time

What an inspiring blog skip! The Hero Arts sets are so much fun to use. My card share for today is actually the third card I made while working on cards for ghe skip  but decided I'd save it to share today instead. This one uses the All The Time OWH Fundraiser set by Hero Arts. I created a stamped tone-on-tone background and used a new to me technique of double heat embossing on the clock face. The clock border and numerals are embossed in copper and the handa are embossed in gold.

When I sat down to create my cards for yesterday's skip I couldn't decide which stamp sets to use. I opted for the Hot Air Balloon because it's fun to color and makes it easy to create a fun festive card. When it came time to create a second card I decided I wanted to finally use the house in the Right At Home set. I had yet to use it on a single card! For some reason I was hesitant and a bit intimidated as to how to make it work in the context of  card design. When all was said and done I was fairly pleased with how it turned out and now I think I'll be more likely to use it again.

Happy Crafting!
