Now on to my cards...
For this first card I was totally inspired by the name of the background stamp I used (CG245 - Classic Fabric Design). Using Hero Hues Punch Chalk Ink, I stamped it on Sticky Back Canvas, frayed the edges and adhered it to my card base. I then stamped my sentiment on Eggshell Layering Paper and added it to my card along with various Hero Arts embellishments.
Here's my second card. I used Hero Arts new 4 Flowers cling set and new Finding Joy clear set. I stamped the background and distressed the edges of the notecard. I then stamped and cut out the flowers before coloring them with distress inks and adhering them to the card. I stamped the greeting on the card and added my embellishments.
Finally, here's my third card featuring Hero Arts new Friendly Flags clear set. After stamping the Cloud stamp on white cardstock and adhering it to a Hero Arts Chocolate Notecard, I stamped the flags and owls on white cardstock. I colored them with pencil crayons and distress inks, stamped the letters on the flags and adhered everything to the card. A little glossy accents on the hearts and some twine and the card is finished.
|CL475 - Friendly Flags; CL312 - Simple and Basic Alphabet; D5302 - Heart Owls; S5215 - Clouds; PS518 - Chocolate Notecard; AF101 - Memories Ink Pad; AF146 - Soft Pool Shadow Ink; AF190 - Barn Door Distress Ink; GW221 - Glossy Accents; other - twine;|

It's nice to see cards not too cluttered up with stuff. Yours are gorgeous.

Such cute cards, especially the owl one.
Love the effect you achieved with stamping on sticky back canvas and fraying it. With all the creativity on display in this blog hop, I'm starting to get some ideas of my own! Thanks for sharing!
All the cards are great! The fabric stamp looks great on the canvas, and I really like how you used latte ink for the sentiments instead of black. Really neat!

Wow! Very beautiful cards. I especially love the owls card. Thank you!
Great job on the cards, they are all beautiful!
Lovely cards, especially the owls.
Sarah, your cards are just lovely. All the subtle shading and sponging... I'm feeling the need to run to my studio! Thank you for that.
LOVE your cards! The first one is my favorite - love the colors, the texture, the stamp itself... BEAUTIFUL!
I love the stamping on sticky backed canvas. i didnt think it would show up that good! the banner is cute too, thanks for sharing your talents.
Okay, so I might need a tissue to wipe up some drool here, but how could I not react this way! Wow!~ The first card using Fabric stamp image is just gorgeous. And the two cute owls just loving each other is ever sweet, but the icing on the cake for me is that second card. Oh my goodness. Where do I begin. First I should say that the flower set is one of my most wanted stamp sets now, but I am over the moon for the colour combo that you used here. I love earth tone colours and these seem to be it. The back ground stamp is just splendid with these flowers and of course the sentiment is just so bold and makes a statment all of it's own. Wow! Just love these gems so much. Thanks so much for sharing.
Wow!! your cards are fantastic--I really love the classic fabric design stamped on sticky back canvas.
I love the look of stamping on fabric. You did a great job. All yours cards were beautiful.
I LOVE your CAS designs, Sarah! The fabric stamp looks amazing on canvas and the way you layered the flags is so creative. Thanks for the inspiration!
That fabric design has just jumped to the top of my wish list! What a fantastic way to use it!
I really like your cards. The stamping on the canvas is really a great look not to mention the card. The flower card is also a great card with the metal embellishments in the middle of the flower and the colors you used.
