Hero Arts Cut-Out Christmas Fancy Die

Die Cutting with a Hero Arts Christmas Die

Howdy! I am dropping in today for Christmas in September. Is that a thing? I just got the Hero Arts Cut-Out Christmas die and I really wanted to use it.  So here we go.

Hero Arts Cut-Out Christmas Fancy Die

This Merry Christmas die is a fun one. As you can see you get a positive negative look. There are 3 different dies like this in the a2z Scrapbooking Etsy shop. There is Merry Christmas, Tis The Season and Happy Holidays.

I had this shiny red paper in my stash and thought it would work well for this card. I positioned the die so that I had a portion of red below the sentiment.

For the background I stamped some snowflakes and heat embossed them using Hero Arts Sparkle embossing powder. It gives a nice little shine with some glittery sparkle. I need to give this a try with some colored pigment ink instead of the Versamark. I glued the red sentiment piece to the background.

The house and trees are from a Hero Arts stamp set called Home For The Holidays. I heat embossed the house and the bare tree in brown and the full tree with green powder. I colored the house and the full tree with Copics. I used the matching die set to cut them out.

Hero Arts Tiger Lily Appreciate What Is

I really like heat embossing the last layer on this tiger lily in white.  I know it’s not a natural look, but it’s quite riveting in real life.  The flower becomes the stunning focus on the card.  So happy to share this flower with you.  You can find me at A Bit of This and That.

For my project today I am sharing a card made using the Hero Arts Monarch Butterfly Fancy Die.

picsart_08-28-11.50.47

I had a good time with this one as it uses a favorite technique of heat foiling. I used a panel from Creative Vision Stamps and some of their Blade foil to do the background panel. The Monarch Fancy Butterfly die is from Hero Arts which is cut out of white cardstock as well as silver glitter cardstock. The sentiment is stamped using VersaMark clear embossing ink and heat embossed using Silver Glitter Powder.

Hero Arts Sweet Sprinkles Special Birthday

Yay it’s Friday!

Cindy here to share another Birthday card.

Do you find it hard to use a bright and busy background on occasion?!  I thought so.  I have a panel of second generation stamping leftover from another project but it is still quite colorful and festive, and I think it is perfect for a birthday card.  But instead of an equally busy focal point, I went the opposite direction.  I just added a simple white heat embossed sentiment on black card stock.

Some of the areas in the background panel didn’t get ink, so I used the small confetti image from the Birthday Stamp & Cut set to fill them in, and slightly distress with Spun Sugar to tame the bright white from the paper panel.  For the inside of the card I stamped a cake image using the same ink palette.

Thanks for joining me today.  I hope you’d take part in our August Challenge:  Birthday!  Scroll down and get the information.

One more thing:  The sizzling summer sale is still on.   All stamps are 10% off for the rest of August! This includes already bundled for savings items and already marked down items!  And we will be offering Free Shipping on all orders over $35!

Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch Inlaid Die Cut

Howdy! I am here today with some shimmery butterflies. Oh wait that was last month. How about a birthday card for you!

Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch Clear Stamp

When I thought about making this card the inlay technique and using some of the Hero Arts Glimmer Metallic Ink came to mind. So here we are.

For the butterflies I put some drops of the purple and the blue Hero Arts Glimmer Metallic Ink on a kraft sheet along with a tiny bit of gold. I spritzed the inks with water. I brushed the ink on paper and let it dry. Then I stamped the Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch on the metallic inks using just the detailed layer. I cut those out with the Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch matching die. Two butterflies were cut out of the white background paper so that I could inlay the purple and blue butterflies in those spaces. I just love the shimmery look of the metallic ink. The purple and blue come together in the pack.

For the flowers I mixed a little gold Glimmer Metallic ink with some Hero Arts Dandelion and Orange Liquid Watercolors. I painted that on paper and when it dried I stamped the flowers from the Color Layering Monarch stamp set. Then they were die cut.

The sentiment was die cut.

Hero Arts Alpaca Present

Hello Crafty Friends – Annie here with a cute birthday card.

I am using Hero Arts Alpaca Stamp & Cut Set DC231

The stamp set comes with dies but I didn’t use them because I didn’t want the white outline for this card.  I also drew a little platter for the cake. I added a bit of fringe to the bottom of the card for a fun festive feel. Some washi tape with gold dots for grounding and a nice finishing touch.

For my project this month I used the Fennec the Fox stamp set to make this adorable card. I have a friend who I talk to all the time when I have trials going on, and she always makes time to listen.

picsart_08-14-11.29.30

I had fun making this card, I started with a plain white card base and used Distress Oxide Inks in Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber to blend my background. I did use the Fossilized Amber around all 4 edges of the base as well. I used an oval die from my stash to cut out the space for the blend to come through. I used Hero Arts Intense Black Ink to stamp my images and cut them with the Scan N Cut.

I colored my images using Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers and adhered them all down using ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever.

I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and with that my project was complete.
