Sweeter Than Sweet Tea

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my first project for the A2Z design team.

For my project I used 2 of the images from the Sugartree Stamps set titled Farmhouse

After deciding which images I wanted to use (the mason jar of tea and the matching sentiment) I sized them on my computer and printed them with my HP printer.

I then used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut the mason jar of tea image, as well as a shadow for it.

I used my Artist Loft markers to color the image and layered my pieces using ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever.

My base is from a Hero Arts Birthday Card kit and thought the color was perfect to go with my image.

Hero Arts Paper Layering Heart Card

challengebadgefeb19-2

The challenge this month at a2z Scrapbooking is this amazing Mood board.  I was so inspired by this board I now have multiple projects going on all around my craft room – the colors lend themselves to loads of projects, for all kinds of cards, not just Valentine’s day!

I received this die in a mystery box I purchased and I’ve been waiting for the right time to use it and I think this was the perfect time!  I hope you find the Mood Board as inspiring as I did and you enter a project into the February a2z Scrapbooking challenge.  Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

The Shine

Here is a good look at the shine of the card.  It’s so pretty!

If you’d like to see what I used to make my card please stop by my blog, Art Without Anxiety.

Hero arts fairy card products.jpg

Now onto my card. I just got the Hero Arts December monthly kit, the first time for me but I just loved all the fairy images, perfect for kids birthday cards or as I made here, baby cards. I made this card for a friend who’s sending it to a new mum of a baby girl called Sophie. I first stamped all the images using Hero Arts inks, then coloured them with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. They glide on like watercolour and blend really easily and boy do they sparkle and shine!

sparkles mo.jpg

I didn’t use this fairy in the end as the coordinating die slipped while I was cutting it on my Big Shot Plus…I’m terrible at diecutting, even when I add tape, it doesn’t come out perfectly centred, I end up fussy cutting to finish it properly!🙄  To know where to add my images, I used the rectangle from Sue Wilson’s infinity double stitched rectangle dies in the middle of the card, as a guide.

name placement.jpg

Once all my stamps were coloured and diecut, I cut the rectangle and got my daughter Ines to write the name of the baby as she writes so well! I flicked on some blue and pink paint onto my card by wetting (a little) my Zig clean color brush marker tips and tapping it against the side of a pen.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I inspired you enough to join us in our Anything Goes challenge. I look forward to seeing your projects. Have a great week!

Home for the Holidays with Hero Arts

Home for the Holidays, Hero Arts

I made this little scene for the Winter Wonderland challenge at a2z Scrapbooking.  While this is actually a Christmas set,  you can use the little houses any time of year! I can picture the roaring fire, everyone hanging around drinking hot cocoa {real hot cocoa, not the mix kind}, all snug in their flannel pajamas.  Works for me! A perfect restful scene after the hectic holidays!

Thanks so much for stopping by! You can all the details on what I used to create this card by going to Art Without Anxiety, my personal blog.
