A Natural Christmas With Hero Arts

Time to Make It Pop with some popping Christmas Cards.  I layered my card and this was NOT in my comfort zone, but I am very happy with it.  I began with a simple image and die cut it in the postage stamp shape.  All I did was cut mostly brown & burgundy colored patterned papers.  I’m happy with it, rather a natural type of card with music and joy.

A Close up to see the layers and Nuvo dots.

It looks like berries and leaves and earthy things.  I thought I would share the very close up photo too.

Digital Duel with Birthday Bash

Today’s digital duel is starring Arlene and me, Chark, along with the Hero Arts Birthday Bash digital kit. This is the prize for the winner this month of our Make It Pop challenge. You can use any products to win this digi kit…and if you use Hero Arts products on your project, you could also win $20 to the a2z store!

Here’s Arlene’s darling card for her darling granddaughter. She used shades of purple for the cupcake and a large sentiment from the kit inside. You can see more on Arlene’s blog here.

And here’s my take for a masculine birthday. I used washi tape in gold chevron for stripes, printed the sentiment the color it already is (teal) and added a candle from the kit for the letter i.

I used a white Uniball gel pen to make stripes and dots on the candle and letters and Stickles for the flame. I mounted the sentiment on some teal cardstock, then white then a pool notecard. So fast and easy!

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.

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

Scrappy hugs!
Leslie

Hero Arts Holiday Houses and Tree-Mendous Trees

Getting ready for Christmas?  I am and I have to think of different ways to give gift cards to some of the people on my list, such as my sons and granddaughter.    I have used the Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut sled die with Hero Arts Tree-Mendous and Holiday Houses digital kits for some really cute cards, in my opinion.

Join in on the Winter challenge at A2Z Scrapbooking.  I have several photos of the cards I worked on for my kids.  I used a 12: X 12″ pattern paper for the card (not very flashy, but the inside is where the card shines.

 

This is the inside of two of the four cards I made.  The blue pool reminds me of  southern California in the winter, when it’s still a bit chilly for us northern Californians to frequent out pools, though I did swim in an outdoor pool here in Sacramento at American River College (nice and heated).  A lane leads up to the door and a Ho Ho Ho sentiment with a place for a note finishes the inside off. .I just love using that Nuvo Crystal Drops white (I’m using the Simply White and I see the A2Z Scrapbooking store has sold out of their white Nuvo. at the moment.  The bottles go a long way.

 

Inside of two of the four houses I made .

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!

Diamond Stencil in White

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today to share a card that was inspired by a DT member at A Blog Named Hero.  

This is Tracy’s card…I love white and kraft together and the bold sentiment really stands out against her background.

tracy

So I took some kraft paper, printed out the sentiment from A Natural Christmas digital kit and stenciled (instead of stamped like Tracy) with the Diamond Stencil and White Unicorn ink around the sentiment. Next I added some red glitter hearts with Xmas Red Stickles and a couple gold dots with Gold Stickles.

q

Finally, I used my white Uniball to add some detail to the sentiment and mounted it on Navy cardstock. It was a fast and easy card to make. I love combining digital with traditional cardmaking.

I’ll be entering it over at A Blog Named Hero…thanks, Tracy, for the inspiration!

Happy Friday!

chark!

A Hero Arts Tree-Mendous Season’s Greetings

I think everyone is getting ready for the holidays and I’m no different.  I wanted a slightly modern twist so I used the Tree-Mendous digital kit from A2Z Scrapbooking.   Without further ado:

Very simply done, but I like the angular lines on the background and the trees.

This close-up shows the simplicity and colors I used.

You can find me at A Bit of This and That.

Hero Arts Holiday Houses Perfect for the Winter

With digital images, you can enlarge or decrease the size according to your need.  I printed two houses and adjusted the size of one to a bit larger size.  I’m happy with both of them.  These cards were super easy to make because the background is part of a paper pad with varying shades of colors.  I bought two pads a couple of years ago because I knew I would want more than one paper pad.  That is so true.   I really enjoyed making a couple of scenes with the houses.

Don’t you love the icy snow?

My second card has a wonderful sky and some snowy ground with icy snow on the roof.

I used a smaller sized sentiment with the larger house and a different color in the windows.

New Idea for Ornaments Infinity Dies

Hi, friends, Chark here today. I wanted to show you what I did with the Hero Arts Ornaments Infinity Dies. I turned the small rounded tip one into a string of Christmas lights for a gift bag.

IMG_5121

I used alcohol inks to color some glossy paper with bright colors then die cut two bulbs to sandwich black string between the bulbs. To make them look more like bulbs, I used a thin black marker on the ends.

I used the digital A Natural Christmas set that’s actually a cut file but I just printed the silhouette sentiment (5×7 size), added it to black cardstock, used a white Uniball pen to add dots and added the Ocean ombre sequins and a couple of stray snowflake sequins I had.

IMG_5110

It makes for a festive and bright gift for the holidays. I love making backgrounds with inks and markers and watercolors and then using the ornaments to die cut the papers. I’ll be using them for tags this year. There’s still time to get your set of Ornaments Infinity Dies and use for tags and cards too!

A Calendar of Many Hero Arts Stamps

I have made my calendar for 2018 and I’d like to share some of my pages with you.  I used two sided papers for my calendar as the calendar is in notebook form, turning at the top.

January 2-18 and I put my red Cardinal in.  This set is sold out at A2Z Scrapbooking, but any Winter scene you want to use would be fine.

 

February 2018 has a blue snowy background paper and I stamped trees in white with my Brrrrrr die-cut  

You could use the Classic Christmas Tree here or the Winter Silhouettes here 

I figure everyone would have spring fever, including me and what gives us more of a feeling of freedom than the great outdoors and scooting around.  These little scooters are in the digital kit City Adventure here.

 

Come April and we’re all thinking of trips to our National Parks and so I used the “Save Our National Parks stamp, which may be custom ordered.

.

 

May is all about butterflies flitting around and this Color Layering Butterfly stamp set is on sale right now here.

 

June is time to relax with a cup of hot tea for me and I used the Kitchen Silhouettes for my cup with a die-cut steam.  But you could use the digital kit Caffeine Fix for your cup here.

I am at A Bit of This and That.  And remember to use my discount code Arlene15 at A2Z Scrapbooking to get 15% off your purchase of $25 or more.

I’ve taken you through June of 2018 of my calendar.  I guess I am prepared for next year.  Happy Calendaring, Scrapbooking and Cardmaking to you all.
