CAS Anniversary card

Monica M with a look at a clean and simple anniversary card. I know there are some things like the ribbon and embossing folder that aren’t in the store, but you could easily substitute. Like I used an embossing folder, but one could just as easily use a stencil with embossing paste/ powder or even dies for a faux embossed looked and have wonderful results!

Happy Anniversary blue

I started with my sentiment placement before embossing and trimming the card panel to size. I added the ribbon and bow to cover the separation the embossed and flat portions of the card. I rounded the corners of my panel and adhered it to the card base. To finish up the card I rounded the card base corners and added my gems to mimic half of a heart.

I love making a simple card like this somedays, it’s a nice contrast to inking backgrounds and detail coloring images. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hi everybody,

This month’s challenge is CASE a Designer, and I am CASEing Dawn today.  I love the bright happy colors and the CAS layout she used on this card.

Three Tier Cake with Produce And Seeds

Hi,

I am sharing a three tier cake shaped card today.  There is no need for cutting die nor template for this card.  I’ll show you a small tutorial on how to create the card base.  Just read on….

a2z_20170622_3tier_cake_produce_and_seeds

Trim white card stock into 4 by 10 rectangle panel.  Crease at mid point and fold into card base.

a2z_20170622_1  a2z_20170622_2

Use ruler and mark out cake shape and trim away the excess.  Horizontal interval from top 1 inch, 1 1/2 inch, and 2 1/2 inch.  Vertical spacing top tier, cut away 1 inch from each side.  Cut away 1/2 inch from each side for middle tier.

a2z_20170622_3  a2z_20170622_4

Mask and stamp various images as cake decorations.

20170621_152551

After all the images are stamped, I colored in the berries with coloring pencils, and embellished with Nuvo drops.  For some shine I added Sprinkled Sugar on the strawberries and Wink of Stella on the raspberries.  For the cake top I stamped the strawberries on another piece of card stock, color, trim, and adhere to card.  I have also rounded the corners of the cake layers.  This cake could be for birthday or wedding, I left the inside blank until at such time I need to use it.  🙂

Here’a close up.

Oven Mitt with Produce And Seeds

Hello there,

It is a very special Monday for me, it’s my 24th wedding anniversary today!!  So it’s the perfect opportunity for me to make a very special shaped card for my DH.

I used the oven mitt in the Hero Arts Cooking Fun Digitial Kit as a template for my card shape (after I resized it using an image editing tool).  It measures 4.75 by 3.5 inches.

 

My process:

  • Resize and print Oven mitt from Hero Arts Cooking Fun Digitial Kit on printing paper.  Use it as guide and cut out front panel and folded card using white card stock.
  • Stamp cabbage image from Hero Arts Produce and Seeds  on scrap paper three times, trim closely and use as masks for next step.
  • Stamp cabbage trio image using Jet Black Archival ink on oven mitt panel.  Stamp the first image, then mask it, stamp the second and repeat for the third.  Mask the last cabbage
  • Align the small hearts from Hero Arts Love Stamp and Cut set on acrylic block, stamp on oven mitt panel in criss-cross fashion using Hero Arts Pink to Red Ombre Ink.
  • Remove mask and color cabbage trio using watercolors.
  • Stamp the sentiments in black.
  • Add faux stitches using black marker.
  • Stamp the Heart stitch from Hero Arts Love Stamp and Cut in black.
  • Use inking tool and distress oven mitt with Spun Sugar and then Ripe Persimmon.
  • Glue oven mitt panel onto shape card base.

Here’s a close up.

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.

LOVE IS BY LIA FROM HERO ARTS

Love is By Lia from Hero Arts is the stamp set that I want to share with you today. I fell in love with this set as soon as I saw it, and since Valentine’s day is around of the corner, I decided to express my sentiments sooner. Take a look at my card:

LOVE IS BY LIA FROM HERO ARTS

 

I created this using Whisper White card stock:

  1. Cut the card base. The size is 4-1/4″11″ with score in 5-1/2″
  2. Cut the second layer. The size is 4″x5-1/4″
  3. Stamp the sentiment YOU + Me on the upper part using Celestial Cooper Delicata Metallic Ink.
  4. Stamp the heart on the lower part using Celestial Cooper Delicata Metallic Ink.
  5. Tie some loops of red and white bakers twine under the sentiment.
  6. Paste the decorated layer over the card base using dimensionals.
  7. Decorate the loops of twine by creating a banner of decorated paper and paste it with dimensionals.

LOVE IS BY LIA FROM HERO ARTS

 

I added a tiny red heart on the center of the banner to have a major contrast of colors, but I really love this clear and simple style and the type of the images that Love is by Lia has.

You can find Love is by Lia from Hero Arts and more sets 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 don’t pay more!

I hope you too 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 January is one of my favorites: Anything Goes!!!

See you soon with more inspiration!

Wedding Bloom with Hero Arts

Happy Sunday friends!  Everyone recovered from the holiday season?  As for our household, the weekend continues to be filled with events to attend.  One of them was a beautiful wedding with a gorgeous color scheme…navy and coral!

Here’s my wedding bloom card using the Hero Arts Paper Layering Mum Flower die.

Hero Arts Wedding Mum

I used a coral colored cardstock for my card base and some navy blue card stock to die cut the mums.  I wanted a little more bling, since the bride loves sparkle, and used some stickles in pinks and oranges to enhance that coral color.

Hero Arts Wedding Mum 3

 

The sentiment is Hero Arts Congrats Stamp and Cut, die cut from blue glitter paper and again in that coral cardstock.  I just layered them over each other for a shadow effect and used some clear Kool Tak Foam for some dimension.  The petals were curled first then the Stickles added.

Hero Arts Wedding Mum

I hope you’ll join us this month for our Anything Goes Challenge for your chance to win $25 to the a2z Scrapbooking store.

Mahalo for stopping by!!

Hero Arts You’re So Lovely – Tag Challenge

Hello everyone,

It’s Donna here with the new challenge “Make It A Tag”!  Doesn’t that sound like fun!  I can’t remember ever making a tag on a card and this is fun….I hope you will join in on the fun challenge.  You have to use at least one Hero Arts image on your card.  You can add your project to the inlinkz  here.

I am using the Hero Arts You’re So Lovely stamp set.  The tag is the new Hero Arts Nesting Tag Dies.  I die cut the second tag out of white card stock, then backed it with black card stock.  I stamped two of the large flowers and one small one on my tag using the Hero Arts Raspberry Jam ink.  Oh my, how I love this color!  I then stamped the leaves using Hero Arts Pine and Moss inks.  I stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts black ink.  To finish the tag off I added some black splattered ink and rhinestones.  

Here is my take on the card.
