Hero Arts Be Yourself.

Hi Dawn here to share a card with you.

Hero Arts Be Yourself

The stamp set I used was a very old Hero Arts set called “Be Yourself” but never fear… Hero Arts have a Digital Version

Instant Download Hero Arts One of A Kind DK035 Easter Bird Digital kit

The digital version is Easter based, but it’s great for anytime.  It’s a great inspiration card as well.    I used some Prismacolor pencils to colour my stamp adding some Nova clear drops on the bird and lots of Wink of Stella.

Hero Arts Hello butterfly

Hello there.  Dawn here.  I’ve been playing with some pretty soft colours this week.

img_2369w

 

I used water colours to make a the card from which I die cut the Hero Arts Butterfly Fancy dies DI078.  I used pinks, purples and blues in lighter tones.   For the background, I used a Hero Arts Stencil (SA026 BG Leaf and Flourish- currently out of stock but you can custom order on the A2Z site )  with some pale inks.  I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment from Hero Arts Hello Stamp & Cut DC151 with Versafine Onyx black ink, a couple of times to get a nice dark sentiment.

Anything Goes…a digital Valentine.

Can I still say Happy New Year?   It’s only the 6th and it’s my first post for 2017 – so Happy New Year!

anything-goes

It’s also time to start thinking of those Valentine’s card as well…. today I have one to share that is made with a digital flower and sentiment.

 

thumb nail Sendong Love

 

I used some Patterned Paper from a Grace Taylor pad to cover my card base.  I then printed the Pretty Blossoms Printable Digital Kit PT002 at 50% onto white card and coloured with Prismacolor Pencils and added some white gel pen dots.   I then printed the sentiment from Say it in Pieces DK030 set, before using an older Hero Arts die cut label to cut out a tag.   Added some metallic thread behind the flower.  How easy is that!  A2Z Scrapbooking has lots of Hero Arts Digital kits (see them all HERE)   Awesome for using on your projects.

Here’s a close up of the flower

Hero Arts Digital Chalkboard Label – handmade Bath Salts

Christmas wishes – Dawn here with a little gift idea.  I made several of these for my friends.

I made the salts and then using Microsoft Word, I added the words to the Hero Arts Digital Frame (DK113)  I printed onto an Avery Label and fussy cut and stuck to the Jar.   The frames in this digital kit are all fabulous.

Hero Arts Wishing you Peace Love and Joy

Less than 5 weeks till Christmas…. how is your Christmas card making coming on….

Dawn here to show you the design I’ve made a few of this year.

Peace Dove

This Peace Stamp and Die set (DC187) is so versatile.  There are so many little sentiments that can go with the stamp or the matching Die.  For my card I have chosen to use the Die with the sentiments.  Thanks to MISTI I manage to do a pile of this design all at once.  Just did the stamping, and then added the die cut Peace and the trimmed red embossed panel.  The silver glitter card Dove die is one that came with a Christmas Themed magazine last year (and only got used this year!)  And because our theme this month is Embellish It… I added some little pearls along the curve of the embossed panel.

Hero Arts Digital Rainbows

Hi crafters

Dawn here to share  a card using a Hero Arts Digital set.   Did you know that A2Z Scrapbooking sells the Hero Arts digital stamps and cut files  (see HERE)  We certainly do!

Wishing you rainbows

I used Hero Arts Weather Cut Digital file.  Although this is a cut file I do not have an electronic cutting machine, so I just used the PNG file and added to a Word Document.  I printed the umbrella  four times, each time changing the colour of the print.  I then printed it onto the main panel with the clouds and sentiment.  I fussy cut out the different colours and paper pieced them back onto the card.   I also printed one copy of the umbrella onto some masking paper and  used it to mask while I sponged the  rainbow background.   I added a flourish and some Hero Arts flowers and heart gems.  Some glossy accents for the rain on the clouds and some raindrops.   I used a sewing tool to do some wriggly lines around the panel before adding to my card base.

One great advantage with using our Digi kits is that you can make you image any size.   And using even a simple WORD programme it’s fun to change the colours or even print out in a very light colour to do no line colouring on an image.

 

Did you also know you can now get free shipping (in USA) for Orders $50.00 or More. Use Code FreeShipping16
And for every $50 spent on Hero Arts products we will send you a special gift! No special code needed.

Hero Arts Peace Ornament

Hi crafty friends.   Dawn here to share a layered card with you.  My card has a number of card layers.

 

Peace Ornament

I used some American Crafts card to make my main layers with some silver mirror card as mats.  The foiled layer is from a Heidi Swapp paper.  It is all the soft green colour (did not photography well!)  I had the clear embossed piece on my table ( mine is not a Hero Arts stamp but THIS one is perfect to use .)   I die cut the ornament (DC166 Merry & Bright Tag Set) from the silver mirror card and then die cut the PEACE (DC187 Peace Stamp and Die) from the green card and stamped the rest of the sentiment in Archival ink

NOTE: both of these  popular Stamp and Die sets are currently Out of Stock at a2z Scrapbooking, however you can CUSTOM Order it in the Store. Just click on the REQUEST CUSTOM ORDER form on the store HOME Page!)   This goes for pretty much ANY Hero Arts products that is still available.  If you can’t find it in the store, please feel free to ask!

Hero Arts Layered Wreath

Dawn here with a stamped layering wreath to share.  Our challenge this month is all about layering – more than one layer –  I’ve gone for a coloured layer onto my white card base and then layers of ink on my wreath.   And I’ve chosen a non-traditional colour for my background

 

img_2067

I made the ombre background with some purple inks and then stamped the wreath (CL907)  in a variety of green inks – Hero Arts, Altenew, Versafine and  Distress inks.  I added some red and blue stars and flowers and some dots of purple and platinum Stickles.   The sentiment is stamped in Versafine green ink.  I added a red ribbon bow to the wreath.   A nice CAS card.

This beautiful wreath also comes with a matching die set (DI152)
