Quick Post for a Quick Card

I finally got to play in another 90-minute scramble with the Hero Arts group. These women are the best, they provide me with inspiration and encouragement and friendship, thanks to you all!

Judy was the hostess for this 23rd edition of the 90-minute scramble and her theme was Old/New Hero Arts stamps. Either use our oldest stamps or newest stamps or a combination of both. I took this opportunity to rummage around for a favorite old set from 1996, Let's Have Coffee! I paired it up with a newer stamp, the Harlequin Pattern Block and my favorite Cosmo Cricket papers from the Early Bird collection.

I love how this stamp set works with the fun retro paper and some of my new tools and techniques. I used Labels 20 nesties in 3 sizes, Scattered Straw Distress ink to stamp and add some depth, Jenni Bowlin ink in Cough Syrup, and a Copic marker in Moon White. I finished it with some white stitch lines using a Sakura Jelly Roll pen.

Check out all the wonderful projects from today's scramble HERE and read the discussion HERE.
