Hero Arts Nasturtium Hello

Hi everyone,

 

Cindy here to share a card featuring the Hero Floral Nasturtium Clear Stamp.  The Nasturtium is an eatable flower, as a manner of fact I planted some in my planters and there is a bloom already.  Yay!

 

I stamped in black the floral image on white card stock twice, and watercolored.  I used a rectangle stitch die to cut main panel, and then hand cut the rest of the blooms.  I stamped the sentiment on the main panel, then layered everything as shown.  To add the final touch I added some orange Stickle in the flower center.  I have one flower and one leaf left over, so I adhered them to an envelope, and voila I have a matching envelope too!!  🙂

 

 

There are various stamps of this flower in the Hero Arts collection, such as the Flowering Nasturtium Wood Stamp, Hero Floral Nasturtium Clear Stamp, and Color Layering Nasturtium Clear Stamp.  Just request a Custom Order if you don’t see them in the a2z Scrapbooking store.  There is also a frame cut for the Layering Nasturtium, and for the Floral Nasturtium.   Did I mention there is Layering Ink too?!  🙂 Check it out on a2z Scrapbooking here.

Cheers using Sugartree Stamps Mr & Mrs digital kit

Hi! It’s Sue. I have a new card for you. Its a card that could be used for a variety of occasions – celebrations, anniversaries, weddings, new homes, new boat. I kept the colors monochromatic, in line with the current challenge here at a2z Scrapbooking.

Here’s my card

I printed the “cups” digital stamp and the “cheers” sentiment digital stamp from Sugartree Stamps KN005 Mr & Mrs digital kit with my inkjet printer onto cardstock. Sugartree Stamps digital kits are available exclusively at a2z Scrapbooking etsy store. I trimmed the panel to just smaller than an A2 card. I added color to the champagne flutes using Copic markers C2 and C3. I had watched people use the “flick” technique with Copics and gave that a try. I flicked from the edges of the flutes, towards the centers. I started with C2, added C3 and went over that again with C2. I think it looks like the light is shining through the champagne.

Sugartree Owl at A2Z Scrapbooking

My granddaughter graduated last week and I spent quite some time trying to figure out what stamps I wanted to use and whether I wanted the card to be kind or cute or elegant.  I went with cute.

Close-up of the graduating owlsome owl

Inside of card and behind that inside panel, I tucked a $2:00 bill and a little extra.  This is a panel adhered to an Elizabeth Craft Designs Sleigh Gift Card Holder Pop-up.

My favorite die for holding gift cards or money.

I love being able to resize a digital.  I used the same diploma on the front, but in a smaller size and positioned differently.

I’m at A Bit of This and That.

Sugartree Stamps at A2Z Scrapbooking Monochrome Style

I didn’t think I could use this Sugartree image for a monochrome challenge, but as I thought about it, I knew I could do it.  So many of my pink to red colors to use and it worked out great.  The one thing I wondered about were the flower stems (they aren’t normally red or pink).  However, I used a warm gray and they look great.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

Visit A2Z Scrapbooking to enter the current challenge and then off to buy your stamps at the store.  Visit me at A Bit of This and That.

Sugartree Stamps Hug in a Mug and Coffee Loving Cardmakers

Hi! It’s Sue here today. It’s the start of Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring/Summer Coffee Hop today. I made a card using a digital kit from Sugartree Stamps, which is exclusively available at a2z Scrapbooking etsy store. Here’s my card.

I copied the “iced coffee” stamp onto a word document twice. I sized them, so one would be larger than the other and flipped the larger one (so the straw would be on the right).  I printed them twice – once on regular printer paper and once on cardstock. I carefully fussy cut the printer paper one and then using patterned paper, cut the body of the cup and the coffee sleeve (which I’ve recently learned is called a zarf), using the printer paper outline as a template. I also fussy cut the cardstock iced coffee images. I adhered the printed paper to the coffee cups and added some color and shading with Copic markers. For the background, I used a mini stencil from Tim Holtz’s Mini Stencil set 3, which is a mini version of his Splatters stencil, and ground espresso distress ink, applied with an ink blending tool on a kraft card panel. The sentiment, from the same digital kit was printed onto natural cardstock, trimmed and adhered to the card panel. I adhered the large cup and popped up the small cup for a bit of dimension.

Sugartree Stamps Unicorn Digital Stamp

Chase Rainbows with Sugartree Stamps

I adored unicorns when I was a little girl, and I still have a soft spot for them, even though I don’t collect them anymore. So, when I saw this stinkin’ cute digi stamp from Sugartree Stamps, I knew I had to color him up.

Digital Stamp Unicorn

You can use just the unicorn or add the background in, and I decided to just print out the unicorn. The sentiments are included as well.

IMG_6200

I used Prismacolor pencils (my fave coloring medium) and a white Uniball pen for highlights in the mane and tail and eye. I also used a silver Molotow pen to add hearts around the unicorn and to color the hooves. I like to use the black Prismacolor pencil to shade around the edges and make the image pop a bit.

If you’ve gotta have this unicorn, you’re in luck! He’s at the a2z Scrapbooking store and is only 99 cents!

Happy Monday!

Sugartree Stamps Close Up | Chase Rainbows

Sugartree Stamps released 4 new sets for May and today we’re taking a closer look at their new scene set, Chase Rainbows.

This instant download digital stamp scene includes the scene as pictured as well as the single unicorn stamp on its own, plus 3 encouraging sentiments! Best part, you can buy this set for only $.99 !

 

Sugartree Stamps Unicorn Digital Stamp

 

And here it is on a card!

 

Sugartree Stamps Chase Rainbows

I wanted a fun multi-color background to go with the unicorn so I used some distress oxide inks, blended and then distressed with some water droplet. Next, I ran that through the printer to print on the sentiment from the Chase Rainbows set. While that was printing I colored my pre-printed unicorn with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. I knew those markers would give me a smooth blend even with different colors. I kept the Unicorns body white, with a nice coating of shimmery wink of stella. To finish I added some accents with assorted Nuvo Drops and sequins.

 

You can find this and our other digital stamp sets in the a2z scrapbooking store on etsy here.

Sugartree Stamps KN002 Hug in a Mug Shaped Card

Hi! Sue here with a new card to show you today. Since the monthly challenge at a2z Scrapbooking is “Shape Shift”, I thought that I’d join in the fun and create a card that isn’t the typical rectangular shape.

Here’s my card

I printed out the “to go cup” stamp onto cardstock using my inkjet printer. I added color with Copic markers. Through trial and error, I have found that alcohol based markers do not make my printer ink bleed while water based markers do make my printer ink bleed. I fussy cut out the image. I then made a top-folding card and carefully traced the to go cup, making sure that there was a bit of overhang of the top of the cup. I carefully cut out the card base. When complete, I found that I had to do a bit of trimming so that the card base didn’t peek out from behind the to go cup. I couldn’t figure out where to put a sentiment, so my card is sentiment-less, at least on the outside.

Hero Arts Flowering Magnolia on a Shaped Card

I’ve used several different colors on this lovely magnolia image and love them all.  The image lends itself to a circle so well too.  I like the way this particular die-cut enhances the flower.   You know how you create something you’d rather keep (I know there are a lot), than give away.  This is one of those I would rather keep.
