Vacation Time with Hero Arts

My inspiration came from the window to the Lake and the Lake itself. I am going to call this a Clean and Layered card. I used 2 silhouette Hero Arts stamps to create this card. The first one is called Color Layering Pier At the Lake:
The 2nd one is called Lake Time Fun:
I made about 8 cards with these 2 sets. I stamped all the images with Altenew's Obsidian Black Ink on Hero Hues Dove White Premium Card Stock 100# and ran them through my Big Shot with the Lake Time Fun coordinating die and Color Layering Pier at the Lake coordinating die.

One night as I watched TV with my husband I ink blended backgrounds with various Distress Ink blues. I like to do this so I have bases ready for quick cards. At this point I sell cards in 3 shops so I am always making multiples!
This card had a oval die cut which resembled a rope pattern from Spellbinders, called Elegant Twist Ovals. I layered the white A2 card base over a piece of kraft card stock cut only with the oval die and not the detail rope pattern.

The inside sentiment is from Pink & Main's Too Cool stamp set.
I hope you enjoyed my card making process to make multiple cards and can take time to join us at The Card Concept challenge. Just remember to let us know what inspired you and what style of card you designed. Fun!
