A2Z Scrapbooking Haunted Halloween

Hi everyone! An October kind of card for sure.  Be sure to join our challenge here at a2z Scrapbooking Blog! Our challenge this month is Frightfully Fun!   We know everyone loves this particular theme and we’re happy to indulge you! Create whatever your heart desires!

Arlene here.  Sometimes I don’t know what size I want to work with and with a digital stamp, you can try different sizes at will.  The digital haunted house kit has so many options and I really like this house.  I had cut out the house and left it on my desk just in case, yes, in case I wanted to use it.  I had purchased the Holiday Greenery Edge Fancy Die with an eye to its versatility in use.  Cut it in green for both spring, summer and winter, spring with spring colors on the flowers, winter with red flowers and NOW, in black for a creepy vine.

The hint of pink in the photo is not real, this is a black and white card with dots of Nuvo on the vines.

Don’t forget about your discount code Arlene15 to get 15% off your purchase of $25 or more at A2Z Scrapbooking and look for my post at A Bit of This and That.

Halloween Hug in a Mug

Howdy! We are now into fall which brings thoughts of Halloween, leaves turning colors and Thanksgiving. I love to decorate for Halloween and I am still thinking about all the fun coffee cards from last weekend so I combine the two. Here is a Halloween coffee card for you.

Sugar Tree Hug in a Mug

I started out making the mugs which are digital images by Sugartree stamps. I used the mug outlines for these. There are 11 different cups of coffee in this set, some with sayings, some blank and some with designs on them. I used Paint 3D and sized the mugs. I used words from the Hero Arts Spooky Labels digital kit and the little pumpkin from the Hero Arts Haunted digital kit to decorate the mugs. I printed the images on Neenah paper colored them using Copic pens. I cut them out by hand.

The panel right behind the mugs was fun to create. I used the Hero Arts Wood Floor bold print stamp to create the pattern in orange, purple and green inks. I used my Misti and stamped horizontal with the first color. I turned the paper so that the next stamp ended up vertical with the second color of ink. I turned the paper one more time for the third color for a diagonal. I like the pattern it made and it would work for many different situations by just using different ink colors.

The orange and purple layers are patterned paper from my stash. The green background paper is from my stash. I rounded the corners and cut the shapes using a Bo Bunny die.

The middle coffee cup is glued flat on the pattern panel. The other two mugs are raised with Glue Dots.

Hero Arts Haunted Halloween at A2Z

Black and white is haunting too.  I was going to color the background, but couldn’t get past the black and white phase.

I couldn’t get past stark and bold.  Below the photos are instructions on how I put this card together.

And do remember to use my discount code Arlene15 to get 15% off your purchase of $25 or more.  Follow me to A2Z Scrapbooking to enter the challenge of Frightfully Fun.

Close-up

I printed out the haunted house from an A2Z Scrapbooking digital kit, Haunted Digital Kit, Halloween about a month ago.  I usually die cut an image so I don’t have a large sheet, but smaller, more manageable pieces of paper, either squares, rectangles or sometimes circles, depending on the image.  I sort through them to see if an idea pops up.  POP!

I used the second largest scallop die in both white and black, scored at the top, folded and adhered together. Listed below are the papers:

  • Black schallop
  • White scallop
  • Black cardstock with white dots Postage Stamp Squares
  • White panel with printed haunted house

I popped up the “BOO” and added the stickers.  I rarely have a card come together so fast, but the image did have to sit for a month.  You can see my post at A Bit of This and That.

Hero Arts Feathered Friends Digital Kit

Hero Arts Feathered Friends Christmas

Howdy! It’s almost Fall and you know what that means, it’s just that much closer to Christmas. So today I went with a Christmas card using the oh so cute digital birds from the Hero Arts Feathered Friends Digital kit. The really nice thing about the digital images is that you can make them any size to fit your project. This kit has 5 birds, one set is outlines and the other set is colored in. It leans towards Christmas but you could just cut the little things they are carrying off like I did and use them for many different things.

Hero Arts Feathered Friends Digital Kit

The first thing I did to start my card was put 4 of the 5 bird images from the Feathered Friends kit into a Word document. Then I sized them to fit my card design. I printed them out on some off white Neenah paper. I colored them with Copics. I cut them out by hand.

For the background I stamped, on the same color of Neenah paper, using Hero Arts background stamp Wooden Floor Bold Prints. I used Antique Linen Oxide Distress ink. I used my Misti to keep things lined up nice.

The tree was stamped using Oxide Distress inks Vintage Photo and Lucky Clover on kraft paper. I cut out the tree by hand. I used to say I don’t really do fussy cutting but I don’t mind if it is not to “fussy”. The star was also stamped on kraft paper using Fossilized Amber ink. I colored over that with a gold Gelly Roll metallic pen and cut the star out a little smaller than it’s actual size. The star is popped up with foam tape. The star and tree are from Hero Arts stamp set Swirl Christmas. I added the red ornaments or lights on the tree using Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Back to those cute birds… I drew the legs on the background and then popped up the birds a little bit with a couple layers of Glue Dots.  Sometimes I want things just a little raised up and this did the trick.

The sentiment is also from Hero Arts set Swirl Christmas and is stamped with Oxide Distress ink in Fired Brick.

Hero Arts Very Merry Tree Die

One Die, Five Cards | Hero Arts Very Merry Tree

Hi Everyone, Kristina here with some more holiday inspiration for your card fiesta this year!
So I’ve been really diggin’ the Hero Arts Very Merry Tree die every since I got it, I can’t put it down!
This is my second post with this die, head over here for a some more traditional colors, this time I’m doing the non-traditional christmas colors thing 🙂

Card Set Handmade Hero Arts Very Merry Tree

I sat down, pulled out some Hero Arts Layering Papers (discontinued) and went to town making a 6 piece card set
using just one die, 4 sheets of paper, and some white card stock.
Unfortunately due to an occupational hazard one card didn’t survive.

Hero Arts Very Merry Tree Die

My original plan was just a set of cards using the darkest and lightest color in the paper layering set
one shade for the positive space and one for the negative, but as I got working it turned into so much more, and really didn’t take me all that long. I’ll walk you though each design.

Hero Arts Very Merry Tree

This was the first (and most difficult) card I did. I inlaid the light pool color into the dark pool.
What I didn’t realize was how tricky it would be. On my first (sacrificed) card, I adhered the main piece with the words down first then tried to piece the negative space inside. Because of how delicate and the scripty words are, they move and didn’t glue down in perfect alignment, so the pieces didn’t fit 😦
What I learned the 2nd time around was; run the light pool or inside layer through the die cut machine first and leave the pieces in the die. Add adhesive to the pieces that will be glued down while everything is still stuck in the die. Carefully flip the whole thing, die and all, over onto you card base. While that dies a little run your other color through the die machine. Remove your positive space piece, but keep your negative spaces for later! Now back on the card, carefully lift up the die and the postive space piece (save for later) and replace it with the one you just cut out. Doing it this way made everything line up perfectly for me!

Hero Arts Very Merry Christmas Tree

The original look I was going for was the inlaid look from the previous card, but that ended up being more work than I wanted to put in and this one ended up being my favorite anyway!
I cut the die our from the lightest shade in the reds, I carefully peeled up the positive space (with the words) and left all the negative space piece in the die for later. I then backed the die cut with some of the light pool card stock, which I had glittered with some fun microfine glitter. I will probably make a bunch more of these.

Hero Arts Very Merry Tree

Now I took the light pink pieces (still stuck in the die), added adhesive to the back of them, and stuck them down die and all to an a2 sized card base. Let it dry for a minute and carefully peel the die up. It was a little too plain so I did some ink blending around the edges.

Hero Arts Very Merry Tree Die

I wasn’t ready to stop so I repeated the process from the last two cards, this time I used a shimmer pen over the negative space vs. glittering the cardstock, for a less dramatic sparkle.

Hero Arts Very Merry Tree Die

Like before I adhered the negative space down to a white a2 card base and this time decided to create a frame using a rectangle die instead of ink blending around the edges.

All the cards got a nice sprinkling of snowflakes from last years Hero Arts Snowflake Confetti die.

Poetic Petals Card Set

Hello Friends – Annie here with another fun project. As we are nearing the holiday season most of us will be invited to parties and functions. A hostess gift is always a nice thing to bring and give. Or perhaps you are already working on your gifts for the upcoming season.

A simple set of small cards perfect for quick thank you’s or hello’s is a nice and easy thing to have ready to give.

I created this set of card using the Poetic Petals Digital from Hero Arts Poetic Petals Digital from Hero Arts  which is perfect for these small cards.

image 0

Here are the cards I created. I kept them simple to fit our current challenge.

First, I resized the flowers and printed them onto alcohol marker friendly paper. Then I colored them with my Spectrum Noir Markers (see below for colors). I then fussy cut them out.

Second, I cut 4 pieces of heavy weight white cardstock to 3″ X 8″. Score at 4″. Then, I put a circle color from Distress Oxide ink. (you can use any ink here) that compliments the flowers. This will provide a landing spot for the flowers.

 

Third, I placed foam adhesive behind the flowers and place onto the circle of color. Then, I  added some finishing touches with Sakura Gelly Roll Pen in Gold in the center of the flowers and some Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops. Repeat for all cards.  

    

Now you have a full set of cards. Add some mini envelops and place them in a gift card box. You have the perfect hostess gift.

So, stop on over to the shop and pick up this beautiful digital download – I can’t wait to see what you create with it! Have a fantastic crafting day!

Hero Arts Cowboy Adventure

hero-arts-clear-stamps-cowboy-adventure-857009169128_image1__11676-1525715680-600-600.jpg

Hi all, it’s Gwendolyn here and I’m back to showcase the Hero Arts “Cowboy Adventure” stamp set which you can find from the a2z Scrapbooking store. I love this stamp set as I can make masculine cards for graduation, farewell, retirement… or even a birthday card for someone who loves travelling!

Canyon sunset

The idea for this card came from our visit to the Grand Canyon afew years ago when we were doing a family road trip on the Route 66 & I will always remember the sunsets during that trip as they were spectacular!

I started out by blending in Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmelade & Mustard seed distress inks to create my sunset background.  I then stamped in the mountains with Hero Arts Caramel hybrid ink  & coloured them in with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator alcohol markers. The cowboy was stamped in with Hero Arts black ink and to make the large arched rock, I  stamped the arch image twice, fussy cut them, and used the underside of one to create the opposite rock formation. I then trimmed them down so they would fit snugly over the cowboy and adhered them on foam tape so it would give the illusion that the cowboy was behind this rock formation.

Canyon sunset cu

The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped with Versamark clear ink on black card stock and heat embossed with Hero Arts White detail embossing powder. I cut the sentiment strip so that it would resemble mountains too and mounted it on foam tape too.

Well I hope you liked my card and if you would like this stamp set, you can custom order it from the a2z Scrapbooking Etsy store. Don’t forget to use my personal code, which you can find below, for a 15% discount for every order over $25!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope YOU never stop exploring!

Hero Arts In The Study Clean and Simple

A2Z has a Clean and Simple challenge for September and I thought I’d use the lovely chair in “In the Study” clear stamp set might work out well.   The sentiment on the books worked out well here too.  Nothing goes better with a stuffed chair than a good book or two.  I drew a line under both stamped images to ground them and tie them together.

 

You may be tempted to add something to the white space, but don’t.  My post is at A Bit of This and That.

Hero Arts National Parks

Howdy! It’s Karen here with a card using the Hero Arts National Parks Poetic Prints stamp set. I don’t know about you but I love the National Parks. It is on my list to see as many as possible. The inspiration for this card was a card we got from someone with just kraft, black and white. I also decided to go with the Clean & Simple look which is this month’s challenge.

Hero Arts National Parks Poetic Prints

 

In the National Park stamp set there are 4 stamps. I chose these two because I have been to both of them. Also included in the set is the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley.

I started out by stamping the 2 images on kraft paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then colored the images using a white Prismacolor pencil sometimes heavy sometimes light coloring. After you color with the pencil it covers up the black some. I took a Copic Multiliner pen and a Memento Tuxedo Black pen and went over the stamped black lines to make them stand out. The Memento pen is a great one to have around to touch up spots that maybe don’t stamp all the way or over the pencil as I did on this card.

As you can see I put some mats behind the images and attached that panel to the card.

For the sentiment I used a stamp from Hero Arts set Set Sail and stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
