Hero Arts Layering Hydrangea summery cards with Erica

Hello!

Erica on the blog today with a couple of summery cards. The summer here is awful, too much rain and not enough sunshine. Not that it matters in the craft room though and I sure made up for it with these cards!

I started out by getting the Hero Arts Layering Hydrangea stamp (it’s sold out in the shop but can be obtained easily) and lots of different ink colours. One thing I always do when I have a new layering stamp is try out lots and lots, and I really mean loooooots, of colour combinations to see which ones I like the best. I ended up with quite a few flowers and leaves I must admit. Perhaps a few more than I actually needed but oh well, one must take one for the team sometimes.

When I finally stopped stamping I got the Hero Arts Coordinating Frame Cut out and cut out all the flowers and leaves. I decided to add little enamel accents in the middle of all the flowers in complimenting colours and set these aside to dry.

Then it was time to start looking at backgrounds and I thought it would be nice to do some ink blending on them with the Long Leaves Stencil (also sadly, out of stock but can be ordered). I got two Distress Oxide inks out in green shades, Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint, and got to work! Using soft movements and not a lot of ink, I blended away until I was happy with the results.

Next I spread out all the flowers and picked three in the same colour family, one with blue-green colours and one with pink-red colours. These I glued together on the back to make sure they didn’t move and then carefully I added leaves in places where I thought it would look the most natural. My inner florist and flower lover took a lot of pleasure in this process. I LOVE flowers!

To finish these cards off was quite easy as most of the time consuming bits had already been done at this point. I might have done the bunches a bit too big as it was a bit tricky to get the whole shebang onto the card without the leaves sticking out too much, despite using 5 1/4” x 5 1/4” card bases. Oops, eh?

In order to show that this layout is quite versatile, I decided to put different sentiments on them both. I stamped up ‘Happy Birthday’ on a small white banner in blue Distress Oxide ink. This stamp is from a Hero Arts stamp set called Hero Arts Balloon Animal Birthday .

On the pink card I simply cut out the word ‘thanks’ in gold glitter card stock, using a Lawn Fawn die. This I adhered to the card using glossy accents. I tried to leave the cards quite simple and let the flowers speak for themselves as they make quite a lot of impact on their own.

FullSizeRender 14

Here are the cards now and that is it from me for today. I hope I have inspired you to get your layering stamps out, try different colour combinations and make your own version of these.

That’s it from me for today. Happy crafting from

Hero Arts Poetic Petals Digi Stamp Download makes for colouring fun.

Jacobi-a2zscrapbooking-august1

Hello again all, happy August and all those things.  So the theme for this month is Bright and Beautiful and so how could I possibly go past the Hero Arts Digi Stamp Download Poetic Petals.  It was made for this page.  I printed out the flowers at all different sizes and then got out the colouring implements and went to town.  My hands that have arthritis were not so impressed, but my brain had a good time, as well as the mental therapy that goes with colouring in.  Off goes my mind, happily thinking, dreaming, imagining and before you know it, I am surrounded by colourful flowers.  Now that I had them all, I had to chop them out.  I am not one for fussy cutting – it does my head in, but I am quite skilled with a scalpel from my graphic design days.  I remember once that I cut out an intricate spiders web by hand.  I got this done and then had to allow the hands to rest, so I amused myself with helping my daughter with assignments and then blitz cleaned the house.  No rest for the wicked.

So, I have all my elements and then the nice mailman brought me happy mail and in it some cutting dies from China as I do love to use the internet to shop.  So, I cut out some little seeded branches and painted them with Nuvo mousse pastes.  I then cut out these half moon doily shapes and used Nuvo wax pastes to colour these also, using two different tones.  I then dug through my ephemera and found some Kaisercraft pieces that fitted in nicely, plus some flowers from various sources.  I am a mad flower collector/purchaser.  I cannot ever have enough flowers.  Is that the case with all creatives?  Surely not just me.

I started with a lovely blank canvas and applied clear gesso as I knew it was about to get soaked.  First of all I stencilled the background as Lindy’s Magical Shakers work better with some texture to get into, plus I was going to do a completely different layout to what eventuated.  You can still see a teeny, tiny bit … hehe.  Out come Lindy’s Magical Shakers and I used dark blue, purple, orange, yellow and red, just little sprinkles all over.  I have pictures below so you can see how it goes from zero to hero in seconds.  Gosh, they are so much fun to play with.  I love that I used no green and yet, there it is.  Groovy baby.  If you have not tried them yet, you simply must, they really are quite magical.

After all that dried, it looked so awesome it was a shame to cover it up, but I had all these amazing and colourful flowers to use and use them I did.  I laid them out to look like a bouquet of sorts surrounding the photo area, most sit flat with some raised up a little.  At this stage the layout was looking very flat and I prefer layouts with layers and height, so I mounted the photo up a little higher on cardboard, put a yellow frame around it and then used a circular cut die embossed with silver embossing powder over the top, situated so the photo can easily be slipped in.  I then snipped my half moon doilies so that I could bend them and get some dimension happening and then decorated with some ephemera and flowers.  The main word “smile” has been made to look a little 3-d by using Glossy accents 3-d gel which gives it a lovely raised, high gloss finish.  A really lovely product.

Below are some close ups of the final layout, with a little bit of silver sparkle to finish it off.  I think it is pretty enjoyable to use digi stamps, they just add a new dimension to layouts, rather than using the normal ephemera.  Enjoy your creativity, to see more of my work, please go to my website at www.jacobicreations.com or follow my blog at jacobicreations@blogspot.com.au.

Nuvo Gilding Flakes and Hero Arts Wallpaper Cling Stamp

Hi, friends, Chark here today to show you what I’ve been playing around with—The Nuvo Gilding Flakes in Sunkissed Copper. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I love trying new art supplies, so I gave it a shot. It’s so fun! If you like your art shiny, these products are for you.

First, I painted white cardstock, a gessoed manila tag and some kraft paper with teal acrylic paint and Prima Art Alchemy Blue Gold acrylic paint. After that dried, I used a stay-sticky adhesive like the Nuvo glue pen to stamp with. I applied the glue to the stamp, stamped the image on each of the prepared papers and then let it dry while I immediately cleaned my stamp. When this glue dries, it becomes clear but stays tacky. Regular adhesive won’t work with these flakes.

For this tag, I did add a little blue with a metallic gelato on the corners and then I applied the copper flakes to the adhesive. I wasn’t going for a complete stamping, but more of a rough look. I left the brush marks and some white bits too. If you want a complete stamping, I’d use a MISTI so you can restamp the exact same spot with the adhesive multiple times.

For this flower, I applied the adhesive without stamping by applying the pen to the painted paper. It wasn’t until after it dried and the flakes were applied that I stamped the hydrangea. If you want more precise placement of the copper on certain flowers or leaves, apply the adhesive after stamping the flower and after coloring it with Prismacolor colored pencils. 

For the final project, I didn’t paint the kraft completely with the acrylic paint and again stamped it incompletely. I die cut the panel with the Lawn Fawn small cross stitched frame. I added a daisy colored with pencils and a sentiment from the add-on for the Hero Arts July Card Kit.

You’re So Lovely Art Journaling

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today to share my second completed Art Journaling layout. I used the Hero Arts You’re So Lovely flower stamps, Hero Arts Diamond stencil, Nuvo Aquamarine Mousse and a few different paints.

Here’s the page with the first paint.

.

I started with just a yellow paint dauber, added some semi-transparent Pickling Wash paint in blue and yellow, added some torn strips of paper, more paint, stenciled on the page, added the quote and some flowers that I stamped and trimmed out, and some more paint splotches. The final touches were black and white pen and some Mod Podge.

IMG_4204

This is the final project. But I took pics of the process and then corralled my teen son into helping me edit them into a quick video. Well, he actually volunteered after he saw my first attempt…I’m trying not to be offended by that, since it looks so good now 🙂

While I may not be an expert at this yet, it is sooo fun to make art journaling pages and I highly recommend you jumping into the field if you’re considering it. It’s just so fun to play with the supplies and design of it.

I decided that I was going to take my favorite lyrics from the musical, Hamilton, and journal them. This is my first page of that project. It’s Aaron Burr talking to Angelica Schuyler and I was able to put the song to the process so that was awesome.

The video steps go pretty quickly, but you’re welcome to pause if you need to for a closer look and use the audio if you want to hear the song! Click here to watch the video.

Happy Wednesday!

Digital Layout with Hero Arts Artistic Circles

Hello All.  Thanks for stopping by A2Z scrapbooking.  Today I have a completely digital layout for you which was actually a bit of a blast from the past for me as that is how I initially got into scrapbooking.  Being a graphic designer, it seemed a natural way to go, however, I then started looking at the hybrid way of doing things and now I have a craft space filled with all sorts of goodies.  I love crafting the hybrid way, but it is also quite fun to do it digitally, especially with these lovely digital files from Hero Arts.  This is the Instant Download Hero Arts Artistic Circles DK044 Digital Kit.

a2z July Layout flat

When you purchase this kit and download it, you will find that there are some little extras included, such as papers, some tags, a clip, snowflake and a pearl.  Firstly I grabbed the papers and created my background.  I used photoshop to create this layout, but there are a number of programs one can use or use a free online program called pixlr.  The same as creating in a hybrid way, this works by layers and is what makes the use of shadowing important.  If shadowing is not used, the layout will look very one dimensional and flat.  In came the beautiful panel of circles which I used in the background paper panels.  You can adjust the colour of the background circles or on any of the digital elements or you can make them different levels of transparent.  I then used the large circle as my main focal point, however I needed it thicker.  I did that, placed it in position and deleted the circle pattern behind this circular area, simply so it did not look confusing or too busy.

On went my photo panel, which led me to wanting a few more elements.  For this, I dived into my old stash of online elements bought from various packs from Sweet Shoppe Designs.  There is an endless supply of digital elements available to use along with the Hero Arts digital products on this site, combining them together makes for a really lovely layout.  So I found some ribbon, lots of flowers, sentiments, buttons and other bits that bring this layout together.  Remember, when working digitally, you can adjust the colouring on things so they match your layout perfectly.  As I mentioned earlier, I used the little pearl that comes as part of the the Artistic Circles Digital Kit from Hero Arts.  Everything has a shadow on it as this helps to make it more realistic and not flat, which is really important to the overall finished look.  I hope you like it and if you haven’t tried doing digital scrapbooking, do try, as it is quite fun and a really great way for those to scrapbook that are on a budget or low on space.

Hero Arts Diamond Stencil on Black

Hi, crafty friends, Chark here today to share some fun stenciling. I picked up some black paper that is meant for chalk markers and used the Hero Arts Diamond Stencil with Distress Oxide Inks. I used Cracked Pistachio, Faded Jeans and Fossilized Amber with an ink blender through the stencil, just like any inks. The result was a chalky looking, crisp image that shows up well on black. I didn’t use any water with the inks this time around. I cut out the panel with the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies and then used the corner rounder on two corners.

The focal image is the Hero Arts Mum Stem and it’s crazy on sale right now…just $4.50! I used Color Bursts at first but I felt it need some shine and shimmer so I added in some Gansai Tambi Pearl watercolors. They are gorgeous with their shimmer. I want to try them on the black paper next, instead of the white carstock.

For the background for the black panel, I wanted a big contrast, but white cardstock by itself wasn’t working for me. I added a layer of the new Hero Arts Woodgrain Vellum paper and that was just what it needed, some subtle texture (you can see it in the top right of the card).

After I added some gold thread and some beads from my stash (hanging down on the left), it seemed to be missing something, so I added the Congratulations sticker and the gold line stickers on top of a piece of paper swiped with Mermaid Ombre Ink. That seemed to be the trick.

I had fun playing with the Hero Arts Ombre Ink and the Distress Oxide Inks. Hope you’ll have time this month to join in our Hero Arts Anything Goes Challenge!

Happy Monday!

Digital Stamping with Hero Arts Vintage Travel DK002

Jacobi-scrapbookpage-a2ztraveldigi1small

Hello all, Delia from Jacobi Creations here with my first post as one of the awesome DT members at A2Z scrapbooking.  I would like to share with you today a travel themed layout using the Hero Arts Digital Stamp Collection Vintage Travel DK002 Instant Download.  To be honest, this was my first time using digital stamps, I didn’t really understand how they worked, so, I love a challenge and off I went.  It is all pretty simple really, seems that it is just another version of clipart, so import digital files into your favourite digital editing program, I used photoshop and manipulate how you wish.  There is a great free online program that works just like photoshop called pixlr that can be accessed easily enough for those that do not have anything readily installed.  You can use Word if you are really desperate.

Once you have the image/s sized how you like, print them off and colour however you prefer – there are so many options.  I actually used my Chameleon pens because they are just cool and the way they shade is groovy, but you can ink them, use pencils, pastels or any kind of medium, paint them or not do anything.  You can colour them on the computer in some programs prior to printing them out.  When colouring by hand just be aware of the quality of the paper you are printing on and how much it can endure.

tv13

Once the images are how you like them, cut them out, ink the edges in brown ink to help give an aged look and now they are ready to be used just like normal ephemera.  This layout uses all 13 digital stamps from the Vintage Travel range.  Doing layouts is about the enjoyment of creating to achieve the finished product, there is no right way, there are things to take into consideration, but your imagination is key.  Try things, if they work, they work, if they don’t, they don’t.  I often find that creativity can look worse before it looks better.  Just a weird thing, I regularly get to a point and think, hmmm, not sure this is working or quite right, but push through and then it ends up looking awesome.

To create this layout, I used a very old Kaisercraft paper with a travel theme/map to it, covered it in clear gesso to help it stay flat and did some postmark stamping with black ink.  The first image I worked with is the map, I printed this out just under A4 size and then went over the grey lines with a brown coloured pen (I deliberately made the image print grey over black so I could trace over them), I then used brown ink with a dauber to colour the paper and give it an ‘old’ look.  I decided to make it into a scroll, so a bit like a treasure map.  I remember doing an assignment in school where I did this and burned all the edges to make it ‘authentic’.  So, I smoked up the craft room by burning the edges, but in the end, a dark brown ink was just as effective.  Use a pen or paintbrush handle to curl the top in one direction and the bottom in another, then mount on a few pieces of cardboard so it sits right up off the page.

Insert the ephemera around your image area, decorate with flowers, metal trinkets, buttons or whatever divine things you might have in your stash.  I always think about the many things associated with the topic and use them if room allows.  Tickets, bits of things collected on the travel journey could be included, a mini hat, some ribbon, little charms – soo many options.  Here are some close ups, hope you like it.  smiles, D

Thinking of You

 

thinking of you

I have always loved the look that the layered stamps create. Especially the flowers!

I used the Hero Arts Layering Hibiscus stamp along with the Hello Stamp and Die Cut set to create this nice thinking of you card.

I didn’t want to use traditional vibrant colors, so instead I used the Hero Arts Charcoal Granite ink and the Intense Black to create the flowers.  After I stamped out the flowers, I used peeled paint Distress Oxide to stamp out the leaf, along with my intense black ink.

thinking of you 1

I used the hello die to cut out two  green “hello” sentiments and glued them together using Multi Medium Gloss.  I then glued it onto my white card over the flowers.  I added some washi tape and cut out my panel using a stitched die.

I matted the floral card base onto some green card stock, then matted that onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base. I added some Ebony Black and Apple Green Nuvo drops for added texture and interest.

Hello Orchids

Hi there!

I’m here with my first ‘official’ post as an a2z teamie, and I couldn’t be happier.

It’s officially winter here so I’ve been huddled in my track pants thinking of flowers blooming, but honestly enjoying the cold (I’m one of those weirdos who loves the cold).

Today’s card has a bit of a story behind it, let me tell you my mini-saga.
So I bought this set several months ago, maybe even a couple of years, when it first came out. I coveted it for what felt like, an age. I stalked other people’s use of it, pinned a thousand cards, got excited when it finally arrived, then could never make it work. I tried multiple times, I stamped and I stamped….

Yesterday, at my wit’s end, I created this, and again, had to fight with it. Until suddenly the proverbial lightbulb appeared over my head.

I’d been stamping the leaves instead of the flowers. Pink leaves. For months. For MONTHS I’d been stamping the leaves thinking they were long petals, and couldn’t for the LIFE of me figure out what the heck I was doing wrong. Seriously. I wonder how I tie my shoelaces some days.

52068144901__F5E7CB48-27FD-446B-B161-3179F3E59652

see anything wrong with this picture?!

Anyhoo, once my brain cells actually started to work, I managed to make this, which I’m actually pretty darn happy with

IMG_5872

I took a piece of Neenah cardstock cut to size, and ran it through my die-cutting machine with the mini triangles die from Hero Arts, then adhered the entire thing onto my cardbase of pink cardstock. Next I took some Cotton Candy ink, and sponged it over the panel, in the bottom right corner, fading upwards.

I stamped my Orchids using Cotton Candy ink (base level), Pale Tomato Ink (middle layer) and Raspberry Jam ink for the darkest. The leaves used Pastel Green, Soft Olive and Evergreen inks (all Hero Arts).

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the same set, using white embossing powder and black cardstock and fussy cut it out before adhering it. I finished the card with some pale pink sequins from Neat and Tangled (but you could definitely use one of the Hero sets)

It was super simple to make and came together quickly (once I got over that pesky stamping the leaves as petals thing LOL)

I hope you enjoy this card!

See you again soon–Happy Crafting!

Hero Arts CM130 Color Layering Hydrangea Shape Card

Hi! It’s Sue. Can’t believe that it’s almost the end of June. It’s crazy how fast time flies. I have a shape card here for you.  Here’s my card

I love the Hero Arts Color Layering stamp sets. It makes creating beautiful images so easy – Hero Arts has done the “hard work”. I just need to align the various stamps. With my MISTI, it’s pretty easy. There is enough variability on the bloom “background”, that orienting the upper layers requires a bit of rotation, but it becomes pretty obvious where to stamp the upper layers. I fussy cut the bloom. I repeated the process for the three leaves.

To “fit in” with this month’s challenge here at a2z Scrapbooking, I made a circle card. I cut the card with a 3.75″ circle die. I adhered the flower, overlapping the edge of the circle and attached a purple banner, with the sentiment from the same stamp set. The card will still fit into a regular A2 envelope.
