Hero Arts Home for the Holidays

Howdy! It is time to get some Christmas cards done. The Home for the Holidays stamp set has so many cute things to make up a scene and dies to match. There is one more house, a few more trees, several sentiments and a few other fun things in this set.

Home for the Holidays

To create this little scene I started by doing some ink blending with Distress inks on an oval, that I cut out, using two different colors of blue.  I cut a hill using a die and glued that over the ink blended oval. There is a little bit of glitter along the top of hill which might be kind of hard to see.

For the houses I stamped them and colored them using Copic pens. For all of the snow I used a Quickie glue pen and then sprinkled on ultra fine glitter. The glue pen worked really nice to get in the small areas and cover the roof of the brown house. I stamped the smoke for the chimneys with Oxide Distress ink in gray. I really like that smoke stamp in this set.

I stamped the trees and die cut them along with the snowman. On the snowman I also used the Quickie glue pen and he got some glitter too. For his hat I colored it with a black Glaze pen. For his scarf I used a Copic pen.

The sentiment is also from the Home for the Holidays set but I did a little altering. It is actually We wish you a Merry Christmas. I like that sentiment but it was a bit to long so when I inked up the stamp I just  covered the first part with paper so there wasn’t any ink on that part.

To frame it I used an oval die from the Hero Arts Nesting Oval Infinity Dies to cut an opening in a panel.
