Hero Arts Color Layering Pineapple Birthday

Hi Stampers!

Ilina’s here today! This month’s challenge is shaped cards. For my card today I used the Color Layering pineapple (I am still in vacation mood ;)). I stamped the pineapples using the MISTI stamping tool, then I die cut all the pineapples. I stamped the sentiment from Birthday Animals Silhouettes with Hero Arts Intense black ink on white panel.

Created my card base from White card stock using top folding card base and running it through my die cut machine with the postage stamp die slightly off the top-so the top doesn’t cut) then adhered a Grass layer on top (that way you don’t see that the top part-the folded part on the card base is missing). Arranged everything on it and voila 😉

And don’t forget to use the code “Ilina15” in order to get 15% on your next order from A2Z Scrapbooking store. If you like something and don’t see it in the store make sure you do “request custom order” and it’ll be ordered for you 😉

Hero Arts Winged Friends

Hi, friends, Chark here today with my favorite flower stamp, the Hero Arts Large Hydrangea as a background stamp instead of the focus image. It’s still beautiful and fun to color, but it’s only a supporting player for the main image from the digital collection, Winged Friends (just $2.99 for four beautiful images.)

a

I used Prismacolor pencils on the butterfly and Tombow markers on the flowers and leaves.

IMG_3984

I used white embossing powder after I stamped the flowers in Versamark ink and the white lines help keep the watercolor effects of the Tombow markers right where I wanted them. The bleeding and mixing of colors was controlled in each flower this way. Couldn’t love this flower stamp more and there’s just one in stock in the store! If it sells out, you can always special order it at a2z Scrapbooking at no additional cost!

To finish this project, I cut out the stamped panel, adhered it to a white gift bag and added silver border stickers and some ribbon from my stash. It’s ready to go to a birthday party now!

Happy Saturday!

chark!

Let City Adventure Shape Your Card W/ Hero Arts Digitals

This car is over 5 inches long and the height is almost 3 inches.  It opens from the top.  I took some Ranger Markers and water to color the car.  This digital car is easy to cut out by hand and I just cut the inside paper in the general shape of the car by holding the car and cutting the paper under the car.  You just crease the line on the cut car with a Score-pad and glue the top car onto the bottom shape.  I always wanted to make this car bigger and NOW it is bigger!    The cool thing about digitals is that they can be made any size.  I colored the car with the marker and then ran my water pen over the colors.  I think one of my pens was low on color and that is why the door looks a different color.

I hope you like my “News” car.

Deco Pattern Stencil w/ Artistic Dahlia & Love Stamp and Cut

love you more wm main

Hello, it’s Angie here today with a curve shaped card using some fun Hero Arts products! Shaped cards can be intimidating if you don’t make them a lot but if you want to join in the challenge this month, you can easily do that by making a regular shape card, then die cutting one or both sides of it with a scissors or use a border/edge die.  Just make sure you use one main Hero Arts product too!

For this card I stamped the Hero Arts Artistic Dahlia on Gina K Designs Premium card stock, then stamped a 2nd one for a mask.  (If you haven’t had a chance to try this Gina K Designs Premium card stock – it’s amazing!  So thick and smooth – it’s perfect for stamped images, and so nice to color on – nothing bleeds through.  It’s such high quality that it give your cards a very professional look and feel!  A2Z scrapbooking now carries this in the store!)  Sorry about the detour – now back to the card…..

I covered the flower, then added the Hero Arts Deco Pattern Stencil over the flower and used some really light inks with a sponge dauber.  I started on the mask and made that the darkest and faded out as I left the flower.  Then I colored the flowers with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  After that I cut the “Love” from Hero Arts Love Stamp and Cut set from the front of the card and from black fun foam.  I mounted a piece of black card stock behind the card front, then adhered the foam “love”, followed by the colored “love”, offsetting it just a little to the right so the black foam would peek through.  I stamped “You More” from the same stamp set on black and heat embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder, then cut it into a little banner and popped it up on foam dots.

Now here’s where the fun shaping happened!  All I did was take a couple of edge dies and used a curve one on the right side and a straight one on the left side and ran them through my Big Shot.  Lastly, I added Nuvo Jewel Drops for added interest.  Ta-da, you have a shaped card!  I hope you will find the time to enter our June “Take Shape” Challenge!  See details below!  My supplies list is also below.

Here are a few more pictures of my card:

Hero Arts Special Birthday Digital Kit DK116 Take Shape Card

Hi! It’s Sue and I have a new card to show you. It would be a good card to enter in the current monthly challenge at a2z Scrapbooking. More about the current challenge, later.

Here’s my card

I started with the sentiment, from a Hero Arts digital kit (details below). I’m still not very good at using digital stamps. However, I did figure out how to change the colour, from the standard black to a nice royal blue and print it on cardstock. Then, using a Hero Arts stencil (details below), distress inks (picked raspberry, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, peacock feathers and wilted violet) and ink daubers, I randomly inked up the stars around the sentiment. It seems kind of festive, to me – don’t you think? I was at a loss what to do next. Then, I remembered this month’s challenge and die cut the panel into a large circle. Using a larger circle die, I cut the purple mat and the circle card – just be sure to remember to “overlap” one edge of the circle, beyond the fold of the card or you’ll end up with two circles, instead of a circle card – don’t ask me how I know this!

Love by Lia Hero Arts Stamp Set

Love by Lia Hero Arts Stamp Set

You Make my Heart Smile with Hero Arts. This is the sentiment that I selected to create my card. It is part of the stamp set Love by Lia and I used a non traditional form in my creations. Welcome to another “Take Shape” inspiration sample.

Love by Lia Hero Arts Stamp Set

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here with you to share a card with banner or tail fish shape. I really love to receive cards with different shapes and this is sample that you can use and put easily in an envelope because it is a regular size. To cut this I used a double stitched banner from Peek a Boo Designs and I kept my card stock folded on top and below the die border to give my card form.

Then I cut a stitched rectangle on whisper white card stock and stamped over the right side one of the sentiments that came included on the stamp set Love by Lia. I love this set because the sentiments and fonts that are included on it are a great size and very useful. I pasted the stitched rectangle directly over the top of the banner.

Love by Lia Hero Arts Stamp Set

To complete the card, I stamped four little envelopes over decorated paper and fussy cut them with my scissors to paste over the card using dimensionals and snail adhesive. The final touch, two loops of red and white bakers twine.

All the images from the stamp set Love by Lia were stamped with Hero Arts Intensive Black Ink.

What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

Hero Arts – Killer Birthday

Hello everyone Monica here today with another shark card.  I loved Kristina’s card with her beautifully blended background and I agree the sentiments with this set are great! I went with a little added dimension with my shark, water and clouds.

killer birthday

I used some distress oxide ink to color the middle layer of water. Then I used an old wave border punch on the distressed cardstock and vellum. The top layer of vellum is cut slightly larger than the cardstock, so that I could wrap the edges around to adhere in the back. I stamped my shark twice colored one layer gray and used an Exacto blade to cut the mouth out. Then only colored the mouth of the second shark.

I started putting the card together by adhering the fist layer of vellum wave and the shark layer with only the mouth. The top layer of waves and shark were adhered with foam tape. I added some die cut clouds to the sky to finish the card.

killer birthday close up

It’s a little hard to see the depth in the card, but I think the 11 year old who will receive it will get a kick out of it. We hope he has a killer birthday!

Hero Arts Killer Messages | Ink Blended Scene

Hero Arts Killer Messages

Happy Sunday everyone! If your anywhere near the midwest and getting this heatwave, I know what you’re doing today….. Crafting! I’m all for summer and heat, but 91 and 91% humidity, no thanks.

Anywho, So I got my hands on the new Hero Arts Killer Messages set, this is one I picked mostly for the sentiments. I LOVE the sentiments in this set. The Fonts, The Sayings, To die for (pun intended). It’s one of those that would be great for making a bunch of the same card and just swapping the sentiments, because there is one for every occasion.

For this card, I wanted to get some very subtle waves, but didn’t have any stencils so to start I just cut out a wave pattern on some paper and started randomly ink blending until I liked the look. I was going to leave it at that, but decided to do a sky background so I just hit it with some Lemon Yellow and Orange Soda ink very lightly with my Clarity Brushes. Next, I aligned and stamped by sharks in Hero Arts Intense Blank Ink. Finally, for my sentiment I stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with some Hero Arts White Embossing powder. To finish I look my clear wink of stella and splattered it all over the card front.

Until Next Time…

Hero Arts Artistic Dahlia with Press & Seal

Hi friends – this month we are focusing on shaped cards; sorry, mine isn’t shaped, #fail, but it’s a tri-fold card! 😀 I still think it’s cool. LOL

Prayers closed

Don’t forget, if you see something you like, you can purchase items at the a2z Etsy store for 15% off, code: MicheleG15! And if something is out of stock, please request a custom order!

Also, take some time this montn and join our challenge, we love seeing your creations! Link them up HERE!

Hero Arts Take Shape Challenge

I made the ‘cover’ of the tri-fold card with Distress Oxide inks, then stamped the Artistic Dahlia in Hero Arts intense black ink. Since it’s watercolor paper and a bit textured, I outlined the image with a sharpie once I finished coloring the image.

I actually used Press & Seal to color the image; LOVE doing this – adds to the artistic flair I think. Literally, cut a small piece of press and seal, crinkle it up, dip it in ink and ‘sponge’ all over the flowers and leaves.

 

Prayers oxide lower right

Prayers Inside

Prayers Oxide upper left

Prayers tri-fold

I die cut the word ‘prayers’ from the center, then also cut it a 2nd time with black foam. I added gold foil to the bottom of the word, mounted it into the negative space onto some black and white striped paper; love how it looks all closed up. Oh yes, I splattered on some gold paint too.

I added a piece of pink paper to the inside, finished out the sentiment and added some hearts.

Thanks for stopping by; can wait to see what YOU create this month!

Hero Arts Color Layering Sea Turtle – Mahalo

Hello everyone!

It’s Donna hereo share with you a shape card made with the Hero Arts, “Nesting Circle Infinity Dies”.  I have created a shaker card using the “Color Layering Sea Turtle” stamp set.  I hope you will join the fun this month which is “Take Shape”, you can use any shape card and use at least one Hero Arts product on your card to qualify for the prize.

closer look

How I put my card together:

1.  I die cut two circles with the Hero Arts Circle Infinity dies,

2.  I used a stencil brush and inked one of the circles with the Hero Arts Aquatic hybrid ink,

3.  I stenciled the waves from the Hero Arts Waves stencil,

3.  I scored the bottom circle about 1/2 inch and used score tape to adhere to the front stenciled circle,

4.  I took the largest and the third circle to make the frame for my shaker card,

5.  I die cut all the elements I wanted to use for the card, I used the negative to put the die cut pieces back on the sheet to stamp the images with my Misti,

6,  I used the Hero Arts Acetate Sheet to create the front of the shaker.  I used the large circle to cut the acetate and then used liquid glue to glue the blue frame and the acetate together.  I glued all my elements and added the sequins to the stenciled circle piece, then used foam tape around the frame and acetate piece and adhered it to the stencil part of the shaker.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my shaker card, I really had fun creating it.  Are you on social media? We are! Please join us on TwitterInstagram and Facebook? so you don’t miss any fun promotions or new challenge announcements!
