Hero Arts Words of Love Digital Kit – Another Valentine’s Card

Hi! It’s Sue here. Yes, yes – I know. Valentine’s Day was a couple of weeks ago. I just couldn’t resist making one more card. After all, I’ll be ahead of schedule for Valentine’s Day 2019 – well, as long as I can find the card! LOL!

Here’s my card

I used the “heart candy” digital stamp. I sized the two candies, changed the colour to gray from black and copied and pasted multiple times to create a sugar sweet background. I printed this with my inkjet printer and added colour with Copics. The sentiment is from the same digital kit and tried to match the colour of the print with one of the colours of the candies.

OK, going to put the Valentine’s things away until next year!

Words of Love Digital Duel

Hi, friends, today we have two fab team members dueling it out with the Hero Arts Words of Love digi stamps. Each month on the 11th, two team members will take the same digital stamp set (which is the monthly prize for our challenge) and see who can turn the stamps into the best project. While there are no swords and no real winners, it’s always a blast to see how two different designers take the same stamp and make it their own. We get inspiration from both projects, so I guess we’re the winners!

This month the digi is Words of Love and if you enter our challenge, you could be the randomly drawn winner of this February prize.  If want this one sooner, you can hop over to the store and pick it up for just $6.49! You can use any manufacturer’s products to enter for this versatile digi, but if you use Hero Arts products and you’re randomly chosen, you’ll win BOTH the digi set AND a $20 gift code to the store.

  • Copic markers RV09, RV11, B21 and B95

And Cindy parries with this project using the same stamps.

•Prismacolor Coloring pencils, Black Gel Pen, Black Marker

•Penny Blacking cutting die – Cut Out Border

Hero Arts Vintage Travel can be a Love Thing

Just wanted to let you know that A2Z Scrapbooking now has the new release from Hero Arts.  My products have already shipped and I can’t wait to create.  Be sure to visit A2Z for your Hero Arts fix.  I provided a link right here so you can jump right into see the new stamps.

You don’t have to use hearts to show you appreciate and love someone.  How about a vintage car?

You never know what will precipitate the making of a card.  I had a pink cloud, red oval die-cut and black sentiment die-cut “wonderful” on my desk.  Voilà,  here you have the result.

Close-Up

 

Even though I colored the car in reds, they are yellow reds and so stand out against the oval red paper.  The darker red, such as the door,is a mix of gray and yellow red.

Please join the challenge at A2Z Scrapbooking.  You can catch me at A Bit of This and That.

Hero Arts Words of Love DK031 Digital Kit Love Card

Hi! It’s Sue. In a few weeks, it’ll be roses and chocolates day – Valentine’s Day. With Valentine’s Day in mind, I created today’s card.

I started with Hero Arts Words of Love DK031 Digital Kit. I chose the “floral love black” image. I opened the image in MS Word, re-sized it and printed it on cardstock. I wasn’t sure which markers would make the inkjet printer ink bleed, so I decided to use Prismacolor colored pencils to add colors. I found a matching blue cardstock to mat the panel. For a bit of sparkle, I added some sequins.

City Adventures Valentine

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today to show you some digital stamps I turned into cards. I took the City Adventures digital stamps and printed the city silhouette onto dull (not glossy) coated paper twice. After that, I used Distress Oxides to color the backgrounds. I used a lots of water to mix and swirl the colors. When I was happy with them, I let them dry.

il_570xN.632085423_21g6

I did wipe down the silhouette with a paper towel to get the Oxide inks off the black images, but it worked fine. You’ll notice I moved the cityscape to one side for the Valentine so I could put in the sentiment and hearts.

IMG_5682

For one of the cards, I added a birthday sentiment to one card and to the other one, I added a digital sentiment and digital hearts from The Firmament digi kit. In this close-up you can see the Silver Stickles I used for the stars.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Love you Valentine

 Hello everyone, Monica M here and I hope everyone has enjoyed the holidays. I can’t believe Christmas is over already and the new year is almost here. With the new year fast approaching that means this is my last post with the A2Z team and Valentines Day will be here before we know it! So I better get some cards done and not wait until the last minute.

valentine

I used a heart image from an older set to stamp in three different colors across the front of my card panel, before die cutting the sentiment out. I then die cut the sentiment three times from red cardstock and die cut the three hearts. To make the sentiment match I ran the ink pad across some white cardstock and then die cut it ( seen below). I adhered my panel on a red cardbase. I glued the the three red and one gray sentiment pieces together before adding them to the card. I then adhered the hearts with pop dots, so they would have some added dimension as well.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t for get you have a few more days to link up for the challenge. Happy New Year!

It’s time for Valentines Day cards | Hero Arts Love

Hero Arts Love Stamp N Cut

Hi Friends! I hope everyones survived the holiday with full bellies and lots of goodies. Onto the next one!
I love the way this simple yet intricate card came out with a faux embossed background of Love, literally.
I used the word die from the Hero Arts Love Stamp N Cut set to cut out several “Loves” and cover the background of the a2 sized card panel. I made sure to start with the one I would use for my focal point and build out from there.
For my sentiment, I stacked multiple die cuts, with a foiled cut on top. To finish I heat embossed Happy Valentines Day onto some red cardstock, and added some Nuvo drops for a little pop.

Hero Arts Love Stamp N Cut

 

That’s all for me today, I wish you all a Happy & Healthy new year, see you in 2018!

POETIC PETALS DIGITAL FILE HERO ARTS

POETIC PETALS DIGITAL FILE HERO ARTS

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia with you! The spring is almost here but our challenge is not ending so I decided combine these two elements in one card for you today using Poetic Petals a Digital File from Hero Arts, maybe one of my favorites from the entire collection. Take a look at my card:

POETIC PETALS DIGITAL FILE HERO ARTS

To create this card I used Cherry Cobbler card stock for the base and a decorated piece of paper for the second layer. I simply decorated this layer with a few loops of natural hemp twine that I finished with a tiny bow on the left side.

I printed the Blossom C from the Poetic Petals Digital File over whisper white card stock, colored it with Copic Markers and then fussy cut with my scissors. I cut an oval with a die cut and pasted the Blossom C over the left side of the oval. Then I stamped word by word a sentiment from the stamp set Celebrate Tag Stamp & Cut by Lia from Hero Arts using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. Finally I pasted the decorated piece over the base using dimensionals and added some black heart sequins.

POETIC PETALS DIGITAL FILE HERO ARTS

You can find Poetic Petals Digital File  and more digital files like this in the a2z scrapbooking store where you can enjoy 15% off with my discount code MARTHA15. If there’s ever something you want that you don’t see in store, use the custom order button. It’s easy, quick and you won’t pay more!

I hope you will join us in the challenge this month. You have until the end of the month to submit your project for a chance at a $25 Gift Card, and the theme of February is Any Shade of Red!!!

See you soon with more inspiration!

Happy Stamp & Cut with Digital Hero Arts

Happy Stamp & Cut with Digital Hero Arts

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a hybrid combination that I made for my valentine, my dear husband! This is a hybrid card because I used a the Happy Stamp & Cut set and the Digital File Brush and Splatter on it, both from Hero Arts. Take a look at my card:

Happy Stamp & Cut with Digital Hero Arts

Red is definitely the color of love and following the challenge theme I used it for the base of my card and the die cut of word happy that comes include on the Happy Stamp & Cut set.

  1. Cut the base of the card. The size is 4-1/4″x11′ with score in 5-1/2″
  2. Open the digital file Brush and Splatters and select the image that you want to use. I used the Paint Brush Heart that is perfect for Valentine’s day and I resized it in 3 different sizes. I organized all the images on the right side of my card stock and printed this on my regular printer over whisper white card stock.
  3. Cut the second layer using  the printed Whisper White card stock. If you want you can use a decorated frame to create this layer.
  4. Give a few colors inside of the hearts. For this you can use ink, colors or perfect pearls, I used perfect pearls in Gold color.
  5. Cut the word happy included on the set using Cherry Cobbler card stock and white fun foam.
  6. Paste the word over the big heart and stamp the complement word using Hero Arts Intensive Black Ink.
  7. Paste the decorated layer over the card base using dimensionals.

Happy Stamp & Cut with Digital Hero Arts
