Hero Arts Good-bye and Good Luck tag

Hello crafty peeps! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a fun good luck tag I created using the Hero Arts Vintage Travel Digital Kit along with the Hero Arts Pop Pattern Stencil. I printed a vintage car, international postage and two suitcases on ivory cardstock, fussy cut them all and set them aside. I cut the top corners off diagonally to make the rectangular package insert tag-shaped, and then covered it with Postale tissue wrap. I added a strip of torn page from an old paperback novel, and then applied texture crackle paste with a mini dot stencil. When that dried, I spritzed pink and blue India ink over the tag and let the ink run.

I watered down some brown acrylic paint and brushed it over the antique car and when it was dry, I adhered it to the tag with foam tape. I adhered the international postage, the pair of suitcases, a pretty Prima flower, some crocheted lace with zipper trim, and then the sentiment. I inked the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink,  and the final touch was splattered brown acrylic paint mixed with a little water.

Hero Arts WELCOME to the neighborhood

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a fun ‘welcome to the neighborhood’ note card that would be an awesome compliment to some baked goodies taken to a new neighbor! I used the absolutely adorable Hero Arts Silly Scape City Buildings digital kit which I absolutely LOVE! It has some pretty awesome extras that come with it, too!

I thought this card would make a great sample for our Make It Pop challenge going on, with bright colors and several layers, and it didn’t take a whole lot of supplies. I printed the cloud background on white cardstock along with three of the building images. I left one building image uncolored, fussy cut it and adhered it to the background piece which I layered on black cardstock. I completely colored the second building image, fussy cut it, and affixed it over top of the black and white image on the background on foam tape.

2017_12080001a

I colored just a few of the buildings in the foreground on the third image, fussy cut them and affixed them on top of the second layer with foam tape. I printed the sentiment on my computer, cut it into a strip and adhered it to the top of the front panel. I left the inside blank to write a custom message. Loving how this turned out – the dimension is so cool!

Hero Arts Merry Thanks cards (set of 4)

Hi everyone! Leslie from Love To Scrap 2 here to share another DT inspiration project with you; today it’s a set of four thank you cards I created with the Hero Arts Merry Background Christmas Digital Kit and Hero Arts Say It In Pieces Digital Greetings. Everybody needs ‘thank-you-for-the-awesome-Christmas-gifts’ cards in their stash!

I grabbed four Hero Hues Sea Mixed Folded Cards. I printed the Hero Arts Merry Background four times in block style on white cardstock and then cut the sheet in quarters.

2017_11220014a

I cut a stitched rectangle die cut panel from each quarter of the cardstock and adhered one to each card base. I printed a simple ‘thanks’ sentiment from the Say It In Pieces Digital Greetings set four times, cut them in strips,  layered them on purple cardstock and adhered one to each card front. I cut narrow strips of silver glitter paper and adhered one beneath each sentiment strip.

2017_11220015a

Thanks so much for stopping by today – I hope you have a great rest of your week!

Scrappy hugs!
Leslie

Hero Arts Merry Christmas

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a Christmas card created with the Hero Arts A Natural Holiday Digital Kit and the Hero Arts Christmas Messages stamp set. I absolutely love this digital kit and the clear stamp set – and they definitely compliment each other!

I started with the tree background from the A Natural Holiday Digital Kit which I resized and recolored to light gray.

2017_11220010a

I overlaid the deer, cardinal and sentiment (more images from the kit), resizing and recoloring each as I added them. I trimmed the panel and layered it on black cardstock, then adhered it to the card base. Super easy!

Hero Arts Joys of the Season

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, an acetate Christmas card using the Hero Arts Color Layering Holly stamp set and the Hero Arts Color Layering Holly Frame Cuts along with the Hero Arts Acetate Note Cards. I’m pretty happy with my growing stack of Christmas cards – I should be in good shape to have them all mailed by December 1st!

I created a totally clear acetate card several weeks ago and I just couldn’t resist making another one although this card has diagonal panels of cardstock on which to stamp and layer my holly die cut. This is definitely clean and simple which I’m really loving these days. I embellished the front panel with a single holly leaf and used sparkly red sequins for the berries to add a little dimension and interest.

2017_10100004a

I stamped the front and inside sentiments in Hero Arts Red Royal ink.

Hero Arts HO HO HO

Hello, crafty friends! Leslie here with you again today to share another DT inspiration project. Yep, you guessed it… another Christmas card in line with our ‘Winter’ challenge this month! For this card, I used the Hero Arts Jingle All The Way Stamp & Cut and Christmas Messages stamp set! I’m definitely going to achieve my goal of having all my cards mailed by December 1st! This card was so much fun watching come to life!

The reindeer, sled and all the goodies in the sled were stamped on white cardstock, colored with Spectrum Noir markers and cut with the coordinating dies in the Jingle All The Way Stamp & Cut set. I cut the right edge of the card base off with a stitched tab die to reveal some pretty striped Christmas paper beneath.

2017_11050007a

I dotted the background with a snow marker hit with a heat tool to make the snowflakes, and I tore white cardstock to create the snow drifts. I’m really loving how this turned out – and really loving CAS lately!

Hero Arts Merry Christmas

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a clean and simple Christmas card using the amazing Hero Arts Holiday Ornaments Stamp & Cut and the Hero Arts Christmas Messages stamp set! I love this time of year and I love making Christmas cards! I chose green glitter paper for the background which I cut with a stitched rectangle die and adhered on a piece of white fun foam. The gold border on the bottom is the negative space leftover from a scalloped border that I plan to use on another project.

2017_11050004a

I stamped the ornament from the Hero Arts Holiday Ornaments Stamp & Cut set, embossed it in gold and cut it with the coordinating die. I used a red artist pitt pen to color in the open areas. I then stamped the mistletoe and bow (also from the Holiday Ornaments Stamp & Cut set) on white cardstock and cut them with the coordinating dies. Finally, I stamped the sentiment (another stamp from the Holiday Ornaments Stamp & Cut set) on white cardstock, embossed it in gold and cut it with a fishtail sentiment strip die. I attached the ornament with gold cord, adhered the rest of the elements to the background, and then attached the background to the card base.

Hero Arts Merry Christmas Wall Hanging

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a fun and frosty mixed media wall hanging I created for the Christmas holidays.  I used the Hero Arts Color Layering Holly stamp set and coordinating Hero Arts Color Layering Holly Frame Cuts. I thoroughly enjoyed creating this!

I started by brayering red and green acrylic paints onto a 5×5 Gessobord. I then applied texture paste over two different stencils on several areas, splattered black gesso mixed with water over the piece and let dry. I mixed white gesso with a little water and brushed it over the entire piece to mute the colors a bit. Once that was dry, I played with some red and green watercolors, letting some of it run and splattering some of it. I also inked the edges.

2017_10100007a

I stamped the sentiment in black StazOn on vellum, cut flag ends and set it aside. I then stamped and die cut 16 holly leaves, arranged them to form a wreath (staggered in three layers) and adhered them to the Gessobord. I added shiny red sequins for berries and a multi-loop bow with a double loop of cording beneath it and a brad in the center. I rolled up some script paper and adhered the tubes in the center of the wreath for some interest, then affixed the sentiment. I finished the piece by smearing grit paste on a few areas and splattering Copic Opaque mixed with water. I also added some thick cording for a hanger.

Hero Arts Just Keep Swimming!

Hi!  We have a treat for you – two posts today! Yay!!

If you are looking for Erica’s project, please click Here.  

Now onto Leslie’s post.

Hi everyone! Leslie from Love To Scrap 2 here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a totally clear acetate card! This is my first one and I’m addicted, lol! I used the Hero Arts Color Layering Gold Fish stamp set and coordinating Hero Arts Color Layering Gold Fish Frame Cuts along with the Hero Arts Acetate Note Cards to create my fun encouragement card.

2017_10100001a

Acetate is hard to photograph without shadow and glare, but I did the best I could do against a gray background. I stamped two large and two small gold fish and cut them with the coordinating dies. I placed one large and two small gold fish on the front and the other large one on the inside which lines up behind the large one on the front when the card is closed. For every stamped image, I die cut the same shape from white cardstock to place on the back of the acetate to hide the Scor-Tape. I stamped the sentiment and air bubbles in black StazOn ink.

2017_10100001a

Here’s a shot of the front with the card opened up almost all the way.

2017_10100002a

And here’s a shot of the inside. I added White Blizzard Glitter Drops to all the pieces of seaweed for a little shimmer.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great week coming up!

Hero Arts meow

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a fun split closure tri-fold card featuring the most adorable Hero Arts Purr stamp set and Hero Arts Purr Frame Cuts, along with Hero Arts Intense Black ink and Hero Arts Assorted Gemstones.

Before I get to my project details, quite a few of the Hero Arts stamp sets and dies have sold out recently in the a2z Scrapbooking store and unfortunately these were among them. I work ahead and had this card made prior to these items selling out, but I have good news – you can special order them at no extra cost when you order your other Hero Arts supplies from a2Z Scrapbooking!

This is my first attempt at this fold and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! I created this card in neutrals, with a black base and brown cardstock layered beneath all the pieces of patterned paper. I embellished the panels with die cuts, stamping and gemstones.
