Happy Valentines day, Hero Arts Catalog and couple Impressions Obsession cards

Hi stampers!
I am so sorry I have been quiet the past few days. I was busy making my kids' Valentines and as well I had a 10K race on Sunday. I actually placed 2nd in my age category lol. There was not much competition like in other races, so it was easy "placement". 
I have my kids' valentines below, but before I move onto those and my cards for today, I just wanted to give you heads up that Hero Arts new catalog goodies are available on the Hero Arts website. The new release is AMAZING! 

Hero Arts 2017 Catalog

Now onto the Valentine's, since I was finishing them up until 1am last night (and today is work day) I didn't get good pictures. I just snapped the pictures with my phone. These are Anna's (she's 5) and I used the February My Paper Pumpkin Kit to make them.

For Milena's (she's 3) I used Love you to pieces: fox and airplane sets from Papertrey Ink , and for Jason's (he turned 2 yesterday) I used Lawn Fawn and kept them VERY simple since it was like 12.30am when I made them.

And now onto the cards. I have couple cards using Impression Obsession stamps for you today. The two clear stamp sets I used were designed by Dina Kowal. She's amazing. The first one up uses  the set called His Child, and I love how it turned out with the heart splatter stamp in the background and the simplicity of it. 

Next is the card using the Bridge set. I discovered a cool effect by accident while making this card and I will post a video soon. But if you look closely in the second picture you will notice that there is blue embossing powder underneath the white. So, after I did my watercolor wash, spritzed with the sparkle shimmer spray, stamped the image, I stamped  the sentiment with versamark and embossed with Powder (light blue embossing powder) but it wasn't as bright as I thought it would be and it didn't stand out from the background. So I went back (using my MISTI) and stamped the sentiment again on top of the already embossed one with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. And Voila! (I will post a video in the next few days to show you this technique)
