Infinity Dies Are Versatile

Hi, friends, Chark here today. I needed a baby shower card so after checking Pinterest for ideas, I decided to make a baby carriage circle-shaped card. You can use the Hero Arts Circle Infinity Dies to make this card. I used the smaller circles for the wheels and the Ornaments Infinity dies for the large circle.

If you use the circles, when you die cut your folded cardstock, make sure the edge of the die is offset from the paper when you run it through your die cut machine. You’ll see the folded edge of the paper doesn’t come all the way to the edge of the die, so it won’t get cut through right there and you’ll have a card that opens. But only do a small bit (unlike the picture) so your card is mostly round.

If you use the largest of the Ornaments Infinity dies, all you do is leave the hanger of the ornament die off the edge and your card will be attached there.

  1. I die cut one folded piece for the card and then ran it through with an embossing folder. I die cut another one and used that for the inside of the card for writing that wasn’t embossed. You’ll need to cut a shape out to make the carriage opening. It’ll look like Pac Man at this point 🙂
  2. I die cut 4 smaller circles for the wheels and attached 2 to the front of the card and 2 to the back of the card, now it stands up on the wheels when opened.
  3. To the front, I added pink buttons and pink border punched paper and added flowers and a bow and pearls. You can decorate this however you want.

The infinity dies are so versatile, especially the round ones. I made some snowman cards here if you want to see those.

Happy Sunday!

Sea Turtle for Baby Boy with Hero Arts

Aloha and Happy Sunday friends!  Taking a break from the holiday card making as I needed a large card for coworkers to sign for our dear pharmacist who gave birth to a sweet baby boy!  The card measures at 8.5in x 5.5in (basically an 8.5in x11in cardstock folded in half).  She has an ocean theme for his nursery so I got out my very fun and beautiful Hero Arts Color Layering Sea Turtle set.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts Congrats Stamp and Cut (which you could special order).

To add the ocean effect I decided to make a shaker with Hero Arts Ombre Ocean sequins.

Hero Arts Color Layering Sea Turtle

I used my Silhouette to cut out a 4in circle frame and a 4in blue circle for the back.  I stamped out some fun kelp and star fish (Hero Arts Hybrid ink in Green Apple and Hero Arts Hybrid ink in Caramel). To get the lighter version I used 2nd generation stamping.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Congrats Stamp and Cut (which you could special order) inked in Hero Arts Hybrid ink Deep Ocean.  The 4in letters were cut with my Silhouette and embossed with a wavy embossing folder.  The sea turtle was inked in Hero Arts Hybrid ink in Green Apple, Moss and Pine.

I hope you enjoyed this break from holiday projects…hehe.  Mahalo for stopping by!

Embossing with Hero Arts Stencils

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today to show you a Clean And Simple card I made with a dry embossing technique with stencils. It was easy and makes those stencils even more useful. I didn’t get messy with embossing paste or inks but I got to use the design for my background.

 

I used a technique I learned from Shari Carroll’s video here. You simply use your plastic stencil with your cutting machine plates and thin foam (I used an embossing foam mat, shes uses an old, thin mouse pad). The layers she used were cutting platform, plate, foam, stencil, paper, foam, plate. You can get more details in the video. I only had one piece of foam so I used a squishy piece of cardboard for the other layer. It worked just fine.

Here’s a close-up of the texture and you can also see the shimmer on the heart from the metallic gelatos I used.

The heart die cut is from the So Sorry Stamp and Cut set and it’s one of those versatile sets with a few different-sized heart dies.

For this one, I scribbled green and blue metallic gelatos on an acrylic block and then used a good deal of water to make a painted watercolor heart.

For the little heart inside, I used my silver Stickles and left the heart for the focus. This could be an engagement card, baby card or even a sympathy card.

Hope you’ll join in our monthly challenge by using your Hero Arts products for the main elements and following the CAS (Clean and Simple) theme. You could be the winner of the $25 gift certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking store!

Happy Tuesday!
