Guest Designer Amy Tsuruta


We’re so excited to have Amy Tsuruta design for us today! Amy is working on her stash of holiday cards for next year—this woman is on top of things!

You may know Amy from her amazing Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hops, her blog Tsuruta Designs or perhaps from Hero Arts Creative Team, The Confetti Crew at Reverse Confetti, or any number of design teams. Amy has talent galore and we’re so happy she stopped by today to share that talent with us.

Take a look at this gorgeous watercolor card using the Hero Arts Origami Happy Holidays set as her focal point.


I think the background of this card is beautiful in its subtlety…just the right amount of interest. Wouldn’t you love to get this holiday card in the mail? I would, and I’m pretty sure you could add a birthday message or hello message and use this one all year around.

Here’s a little close-up to admire.


Thanks so much, Amy, for designing for us today and for sharing your beautiful card with all of us! Hop over to Amy’s blog to check out more about this card and for more inspiration.

You can check out the a2z store for these products and more, including our sale section.

Don’t forget you have just hours left to enter this month’s a2z Scrapbooking Anything Goes with your Hero Arts products. Hop here to look at the specifics…and I hope you win the $25 gift card to the store!


Happy Tuesday!
