Hero Arts Tree-Mendous Birthday

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a fun birthday card using the Hero Arts Tree-Mendous Digital Kit and the Hero Arts Birthday Bash Digital Kit! Another fun almost-one-layer and all-digital card! I wanted to demonstrate the versatility of the Tree-Mendous Digital Kit – instead of using it for a Christmas card (I’m done with those for a while, lol!), I used it for a birthday card by coloring one of the trees in bright colors and adding a birthday sentiment from the Birthday Bash Digital Kit.

I printed a tree with flourishes and a sentiment, along with an extra tree (without the sentiment) on the opposite side of a piece of thick white cardstock. I flipped the piece over and printed the sentiment (which you’ll see in the post on my blog).

2017_12160022a

I cut the cardstock in half vertically and scored the card base (the half with the sentiment). I fussy cut the extra tree, colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and layered it on black cardstock which I trimmed, leaving a very narrow edge of black around the image. I colored the flourishes with a sparkle overlay marker and then ‘dabbed’ Multi Medium Matte over the entire image with a pouncing tool to give it some subtle texture. I adhered the tree to the card base and added a few pink sequins to finish the front.

Scrappy hugs!

Hero Arts Celebrate

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a real quick and easy birthday card I created using the absolutely adorable Hero Arts Birthday Bash Digital Kit. This is our Digi of Month and will be the prize going to our randomly-selected winner this month! This card probably took me about 30 minutes from start to finish! I love it when that happens – and this would be super fun to mass produce to have a several in your card stash for a last-minute need.

2017_12150001a

I don’t do one-layer or all-digital cards very often, but I enjoyed this! Love the black and white monochrome with a pop of pink!

I printed a birthday cake and a sentiment on cardstock, flipped it over and printed the inside sentiment (which you’ll see on my blog), then added a piece of black and white patterned paper across the top for a little interest. I colored the squiggle of icing on the cake hot pink along with a strip of white cardstock to match which I adhered across the front under the patterned paper. I added a tiny pre-made black and white printed bow. You can’t see it very well in the photos, but I used Glossy Accents on the icing.

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.

2017_12090006a

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.
