Go Wild with Hero Arts Digis

2 Comments

Hi, Friends, it’s Chark here today with a fun “Dueling Design Team Members” post. If you saw yesterday’s post, you know we’re changing things up for our monthly challenge here at a2z and our challenge winner for October’s Watercolor challenge will win the Go Wild digital set. If our random winner is also using Hero Arts products, we will add a $20 gift card to the store!

Today, Leslie and I decided to duel each other and each use the Go Wild digi to see if we can come up with something fun to share. I have to admit, I brought my A-game to this challenge, since Leslie is top-notch. First is Leslie’s card and how she made it.

I created the background using the Go Wild Digital Kit, re-sizing and re-coloring the images as I applied them to my layout. I also used digital buttons from the Hero Arts Say It in Pieces Digital Greetings, re-sizing and re-coloring them as I applied them to the layout.

I printed the layout and trimmed it down, then layered the panel on black cardstock and again on blue cardstock, then adhered it to the card base. I applied Morning Dew Crystal Drops to the buttons and a few random places on the card front. I also used a sentiment on the inside from the Say It in Pieces Digital Greetings. For more details and additional photos, please see my blog post at Love To Scrap 2.

And here’s mine. I printed the cheetah pattern on gold matte paper (hammered) and printed the same greeting Leslie used onto white cardstock. I colored the words with a Tombow red marker and then colored a white card on the edge to match. I adhered the greeting to the cheetah paper. Note—I tried printing from my laser (black and white) printer onto shiny metallic paper and it didn’t work well. Another kind of printer might do better but the matte paper was key to good quality printing for me. I used Nuvo Glossy Black Drops for the corners. This one was super fast.

One of my favorite things about digi stamps is the instant download. I’m often making cards at the last minute, even for birthdays that I know are coming(!), so digital stamps make things faster and easier than stamping. I just print the stamp on colored paper and add the greeting or print and color while I watch tv. I don’t do anything fancy on the computer with digitals, though you can create the entire card as digital and just print it too.

I like the fact that Leslie and I both used the same sentiment but that we each went a different way with color schemes. It just goes to show you how versatile digital stamps are.

Hope you’ll join in our monthly challenge so you can have a shot at this stamp set. Remember you no longer have to use Hero Arts to participate in our monthly challenges, the winner is randomly drawn for the digi prize…and if you do use Hero Arts products on your project, you could win this digi set AND $20 to the store! The Design Team will also be choosing their top three favorite projects from the challenge each month and award them a cool TOP 3 blog badge.

Happy Monday!
