Hero Arts Killer Messaged Mini Card Set

Hi Everyone, Kristina here with a mini card set showcasing the Hero Arts Killer Messages stamp set!
I bought this set mostly for the sentiments. I love the style, the design, and the sayings themselves!
They could be used with or without the other images in the set and they are nice bold stamps.

Here they are in action!

Hero Arts Killer Messages

I wanted to make some water-ish backgrounds to go with the shark/whale, so I went with alcohol inks and made 4 different combos using the colors I had on hand. I used ranger glossy paper that I had die cut into little scallop squares, and dropped on my alcohol ink / blending solution and moved it all around until I got the look desired.

Once they had fully dried and treated them generously with my EK Success Powder tool before embossing the images and sentiments with Versa Mark and Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.

Hero Arts Killer Messages

I cut the back card panel from the same die and adhered to two together at the top, with a score line for opening. These little note cards measure 3.5×3.5, which I’ll make custom envelopes for, and send off to my friends just for little pick me ups!

Hero Arts Killer Messages

I do have a bit of bad news though – There’s only 1 of these left in stock, so run, do not walk, to the a2z store and scoop it up

Travel on my Mind with Hero Arts Travel Journal DK004

Hi, if you are looking for the Coffee Lovers Bloghop post, please click Here.

 

With Shape Shifting as the theme for this month, I was a bit dumbfounded as to what to do and what to use to create with until I started to go through some new paper packs that arrived recently from Kaisercraft. One of them is a very Australian themed pack and it included this round piece which is a world map/globe image. I actually got out the coloring pencils to accentuate the land and water in the image. After that I stenciled on some gum leaves and sprinkled green glitter over the top and then chose a few different pieces of ephemera from the same collection set to use.

My next step was to print out a few of the pieces from the Hero Arts Travel Journal DK004 set to use throughout my layout. I print them out on paper and then glue them onto cardboard to make them a tad more rigid.

 

 

 

 

I built up my photo frame using papers from the same collection and then on go all of the flowers and pieces of ephemera and always the final touch, the bling for the final bits of sparkle. All done, I hope you like it. See you next time.

Delia

Sugartree Stamps Hug in a Mug and Coffee Loving Cardmakers

Hi! It’s Sue here today. It’s the start of Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring/Summer Coffee Hop today. I made a card using a digital kit from Sugartree Stamps, which is exclusively available at¬†a2z Scrapbooking etsy store. Here’s my card.

I copied the “iced coffee” stamp onto a word document twice. I sized them, so one would be larger than the other and flipped the larger one (so the straw would be on the right).¬† I printed them twice – once on regular printer paper and once on cardstock. I carefully fussy cut the printer paper one and then using patterned paper, cut the body of the cup and the coffee sleeve (which I’ve recently learned is called a zarf), using the printer paper outline as a template. I also fussy cut the cardstock iced coffee images. I adhered the printed paper to the coffee cups and added some color and shading with Copic markers. For the background, I used a mini stencil from Tim Holtz’s Mini Stencil set 3, which is a mini version of his Splatters stencil, and ground espresso distress ink, applied with an ink blending tool on a kraft card panel. The sentiment, from the same digital kit was printed onto natural cardstock, trimmed and adhered to the card panel. I adhered the large cup and popped up the small cup for a bit of dimension.

Sugartree Stamps Unicorn Digital Stamp


3 Comments

Chase Rainbows with Sugartree Stamps

I adored unicorns when I was a little girl, and I still have a soft spot for them, even though I don’t collect them anymore. So, when I saw this stinkin’ cute digi stamp from Sugartree Stamps, I knew I had to color him up.

Digital Stamp Unicorn

You can use just the unicorn or add the background in, and I decided to just print out the unicorn. The sentiments are included as well.

IMG_6200

I used Prismacolor pencils (my fave coloring medium) and a white Uniball pen for highlights in the mane and tail and eye. I also used a silver Molotow pen to add hearts around the unicorn and to color the hooves. I like to use the black Prismacolor pencil to shade around the edges and make the image pop a bit.

If you’ve gotta have this unicorn, you’re in luck! He’s at the a2z Scrapbooking store and is only 99 cents!

Happy Monday!

Sugartree Sentiment Happy Mother’s Day

Mix a bit of digi with coloring and this is one of the results.¬† I gave this card to my daughter-in-law for Mother’s Day.¬† A friend gave me the paper to color and I went for yellows and pinks.¬† Below the card is one of the panels in pink that I colored.¬† I didn’t think I would like the panels so well, but I love the gold outlines (which you can feel if you run your finger over the panel) and extremely smooth paper.

I usually print out digital sentiments in different sizes to see how they will fit on the card and either die cut the sentiment or make a banner with scissors like I did here.  A friend gave this to me to color.  She had cut three panels and I colored one in yellow and the other two in light pinks and dark pinks.  This is gorgeous in real life and all the panel needed was a beautiful sentiment.  Consider adding a sentiment to a complex background.

Just Married Wedding Card with Sugartree Stamps

Hi Everyone, Kristina here! Wedding season is upon us isn’t it? I’ve got a card to share with you today using the new Sugartree Stamps “Mr. & Mrs.” wedding themed digital stamp set. I just love the getaway car image.

 

Wedding Digital Stamps

Teal is one of my favorite wedding colors so after printing out my image I used copic markers to color her in before moving on to the rest of the card.

Wedding Digital Stamps

I cut out some vine and floral images from Spellbinders, adhered to stick it adhesive so I could glitter. I glittered the die cuts with Elizabeth Craft Silk Microfine Glitter.

Wedding Digital Stamps

To finish I mounted the card panel onto some Hero Arts layering paper in pool, and added Nuvo Drop accents.

Graduation Digital Stamps

Sugartree Stamps Close Up | Whoot! Graduation Set

Today we’re taking a closer look at the newly released digital stamp set “Whoot!” from Sugartree Stamps. This set contains 4 Images + 15 mix & match sentiment options all in high resolution 300dpi PNG files with transparent backgrounds, Bonus “Congrats” SVG w/ drop shadow included!

 

Graduation Digital Stamp

 

And here it is on a card!

 

Graduation Digital Stamps

 

To start my card base I did a quick watercolor wash with my Gansai Tambi watercolors, starting with the teal colors and then splattering with some gold. Next, I printed the graduation stamp onto some blue card stock and then traced over it with a gold gel pen, followed by cutting it out with my brother scan n cut. For my sentiment I uploaded the SVG file into cricut design space and cut out the image on my cricut explore using the same blue card stock from the hat, and some gold foil cardstock on top. Once the watercolor was dry I glued down my sentiment and popped the die cut hat on with some foam adhesive, and there you have it!

Color Layering Butterfly Tag Card

Hello there,

 

My May challenge inspired card today is very simple, a tag card.¬† Sometimes things don’t need to be complicated.¬† I cut two tags measuring 3 by 6 inches using white card stock.¬† One I left blank, and crease about 5/8 of an inch down from top.¬† This is the back panel.

On the front panel I stamped Scribble Bold Prints with Soft Granite, and the sentiment in black.  I added some Washi tapes and a pattern paper strip.  On a separate piece of white card stock I stamped the butterfly using the MISTI tool with Spun Sugar, Crimson, Vintage Photo and Jet Black.  Then I hand cut the butterfly and adhered to the tag front.  Then the front panel is glued to the back, hole punched and tied bow with twine.  Voila!!

Sugartree Stamps Close Up | Chase Rainbows

Sugartree Stamps released 4 new sets for May and today we’re taking a closer look at their new scene set, Chase Rainbows.

This instant download digital stamp scene includes the scene as pictured as well as the single unicorn stamp on its own, plus 3 encouraging sentiments! Best part, you can buy this set for only $.99 !

 

Sugartree Stamps Unicorn Digital Stamp

 

And here it is on a card!

 

Sugartree Stamps Chase Rainbows

I wanted a fun multi-color background to go with the unicorn so I used some distress oxide inks, blended and then distressed with some water droplet. Next, I ran that through the printer to print on the sentiment from the Chase Rainbows set. While that was printing I colored my pre-printed unicorn with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. I knew those markers would give me a smooth blend even with different colors. I kept the Unicorns body white, with a nice coating of shimmery wink of stella. To finish I added some accents with assorted Nuvo Drops and sequins.

 

You can find this and our other digital stamp sets in the a2z scrapbooking store on etsy here.
