The typhoon was over, though the strong wind sometimes howled while yesterday night. There was no disaster around me, thank you. But it takes a long time to change an extratropical cyclone, and it will hit the Touhoku region, the northern area of Japan again soon. I have some friends met on the internet and had the actual meetings around there. Hope they are in safe!
Well, today, I posted another card to use the silly scape stamp here again. ;) The fact that I was going to share you with my last card. But I couldn't, since the two kitties (they are originally outside kitties, first three months of life.) broke it into fragments, while quite short time I was away from my desk. It was perfectly finished!
I had no disaster by the typhoon hit, but I had another disaster before the typhoon was coming! LOL?
I was astounded and very shocked when I found the scene, but I switched my mode soon and looked at their playing with their temporary toy, because they were so adorable! and I found no way to 'rescue' my card... they SCRATCHed it and BIT it A LOT already. They brought my card the fantastic effect of distressing? Oh, no!
So, I redid it - made new one - yesterday midnight to join the Hero Arts August challenge Round 1.
Here is the card, 'a little greeting to say HELLO'.
I so love the font shape of this sentiment stamp. So I chose it for this card.
And, this time, I didn't color on the stamp image of the silly scape at all, just only stamped with black oil based ink. Added some stitching (both by hand and by machine) and the raised small colorful parts on the white cardstock for its accents.
These embelishments looks like epoxy stickers made by myself to heat-embossed. The heart and the balloon shape were die-cutted to use Quickutz cookie cutter dies.
And this is a partial closeup.
The heart shaped embelishment was made by heat-embossed with UTEE clear by Ranger a few times, and then I buried the HA heart shape accent pearl a little before it dried. And I heated it again slightly. No crackles were appeared on the pearl's surface. I was surprised at the result and I recognized again the high quality of the Hero Arts products!

I thought they were gangs just only in our garden, but I noticed this time that they already came to be the gangs in my room... sigh. They dash into the house when I open the doors or the windows every time.
And they have a brother/sister. The kitty is yet fear to come into indoor. I hope him/her to keep its style! Three invaders? I prefer two than three!
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a beautiful week!
