Hello! It’s Kathy here again. The challenge this month is to use two Hero Arts hard products (stamps, dies, etc.) Click here to see more details about the challenge and to link to your project if you would like to play along. I can’t wait to see what you make!
Below are a couple of the cards I’ve created using this month’s theme. I can’t seem to put the Holiday Trees stamp and cut set down. On this card, I only used the dies and used the inlaid die technique. So first I cut the white shimmery paper. Then I carefully placed the tree die on the white paper and ran it through my Big Shot. I did this three times since I only have one tree die. Next, I cut three different patterned papers with the tree die. I adhered the white paper to my card base, then laid the patterned paper trees into the cut out spots. I then stamped the greeting and added embellishments. Such a fun technique!
On the next card, I used the Hero Arts Thankful for You set, the Hero Arts Tag Collage set and the Hero Arts Enjoy Today set. I stamped the big tag over patterned paper to give it a tone-on-tone effect. I used the mid-tone Pumpkin Pie ink. I stamped and colored the pumpkins with Copic markers and then cut them out. I die cut the stars and then put the card together. Easy peasy, as they say. 🙂 I stamped the greeting and also added a bow made of rafia. I’m going to send this for an upcoming October birthday.
Thanks for stopping by! See you next time.
