Scramble time - Word Art

Hi everyone and happy Sunday!  We had a Scramble over on the Hero Arts Flickr group today, hosted by Janet.  Her challenge was to create some kind of word art with a word stamp and one of her samples was a die cut stamped with words.  My first thought was to create a frame with a little hello stamp but my stamping went crooked!  So then I thought the little hello would be perfect stamped on the Hero Arts Spring Branch die.  Here's the card:

Hello Spring Branch

The little hello came from Hero Arts' Stamp & Cut Butterflies set.  I also used a new clear set from Hero Arts called Stamp Your Own Plant  for the ferns and leaves; the larger hello stamp is from Hero's Hello Stamp & Cut set.

I heard from my friend Heather who reported she received the St Patrick's Day card I sent her so I'll share it here too; I was too tired on the actual day to post anything:

Happy St Patrick's Day

I used the Hero Arts' Happy Stamp and Cut set for the happy die along with a Lawn Fawn sentiment.  The shamrock is a 2009 stamp from Hero Arts.  The label dies are from Spellbinders (Labels Thirty-Six).  I enjoyed this design so much that I used it on 2 other cards:

Happy birthday flower Happy birthday butterfly

The card on the left actually used the biggest label in the set; I thought it worked better with the lacy vellum flowers I had in my stash.  That stamp is from Hero Arts but I'm not sure of the name at the moment.  The butterfly on the right came from that same Stamp & Cut set as the little hello from my Scramble card.  If you have seen Hero Arts' Butterfly clear set which has similar butterflies, be aware the stamp & cut set butterflies are a bit smaller and also has a tiny outline butterfly.  Having the one didn't stop me from buying the other :) 

Hope you had a crafty weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
