Christmas flourishes

Hello Everyone,

Last Friday My friend and I went to Joann’s Fabrics in Florence, AL. This store opened a few months ago and there isn’t one in our area where we live, so we drove a little over an hour to see what was available at Joann's. When we arrived at the store, my friend went to the fabric department and I headed for the stamps in the scrapbooking area. I immediately spotted the Hero Arts Stamps and was a little disappointed because the Hero Arts stamps that Joann’s carries are stamps that I already have or stamps that are no longer being made. I found a few older stamp sets that I didn’t have and decided that I liked them, and purchased them. Here are the stamps that I purchased:
Hero Arts Needles & Cones LL605
This set is used on my card.

Hero Arts More Real Leaves LL685

To make my card, I randomly stamped a piece of white cardstock (3 ¾ x 5) with Hero Arts Three Pinecones stamp E1976 in Olive ink The next thing that I did was stamp the Thank You Flourishes CL286 in clear ink and embossed the image. Then I distressed this with worn Lipstick, Antique linen, and Tumbled Glass. I went around the edges with Vintage Photo then I stamped over the entire image with Old Letter Writing S4878. To finish off my card, I added ribbon, the sentiment (came from stamp set Holiday Cheer Messages LL217), and pearls.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Have a great day and God bless.

Beautiful card Sue! Love all the stamping! My Joann's store carries older HA stamps too.

What a beautfiul card Sue- love all the layers of stamps you used and the pretty colors. Too bad that Joanne's has such a poor selection of's the same way here and I just about never visit J's any more. You picked some of the best HA nature stamps out there :)
