Hero Arts Card Class at Archiver's

I don't know if I could say I have a very favorite stamp line but I do know that if I did Hero Arts stamps and products would certainly be vying for the top of the list!  I am just drawn to the stamps this company produces.  Haven't purchased a bad one yet!
I went to Archiver's yesterday and took a card class that featured Hero Arts products.  It was a lot of fun...I don't know that I learned anything new but I did like each card and find that they will be easy to duplicate or expand on.
Here is one card we made....I love blue and green together.  What was fun about this card is that we used a die to create the little mini card on the front.  We just positioned it so that it would give us a flap at the top.  It would be nice to put an additional sentiment here...or to even put a gift card in.  Cute!
We did some heat embossing with clear embossing powder on the front of the small tag which gave a nice sheen.
Otherwise it was just some simple stamping.  But I love the way it looked!  We tied some teensy ribbon around the bottom and that was it!
 Here you can see the little card on the card!
 We also used some foam tape for some dimension.  I like dimension....who would have ever thought foam tape or dimensionals would have had such staying power! LOL! I remember the days when everything was FLAT!  Stickers, paper, stamps and ink....all flat! ;)
I entered this in the embossing challenge at Speedy TV and Made Especially for You.
Happy Sunday and Happy Crafting!
