Bold Floral Stencil Love

Hi there, it’s Angie here with a card for our December Challenge!

dec graphic a2z.jpg

I think I really have a thing for stencils and this is one of my favs ever!

Hero Arts Bold Floral Stencil, used with Distress Oxide inks, Hero Arts Acetate for see through window, white embossing powder with Versamark ink, Gina K heavyweight card stock, and black fun foam.  I made this background some time ago but didn’t do anything with it….then I decided to make a card similar to one I had made a few months ago for a DT post on a2zscrapbooking. (It was more CAS.)  I usually prefer CAS designs, but I like the busy-ness of this stencil with the oxides and black contrast.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hero Arts Vintage Christmas Two Ways

Hi, friends, Chark here today with the Hero Arts Vintage Christmas Wishes stamps and dies. I used traditional colors on this first card. I added some Diamond Stickles to my snowman to make him sparkle, just like real snow sparkles in the sun…and you can see that in the close-up.



For the second version of the snowman in the woods, I used fun colors and sparkly gems for the snowflakes. I made this with an acetate card and affixed the snowman and snowflakes to the outside of the acetate, with the rest of the scene mounted on a pink card inside the acetate card. In the close-up, you can see the layers.



I thought of these fun colors because of a book I had when I was a kid, it was called The Littlest Snowman and he eats ice cream and then lets the wind take him up so he can “rain down” colorful snow on the village. It was the 70s, we didn’t have too many normal kid books 🙂


Hope you enjoyed the cards today…the stamp set is on sale in the store right now for just $13.95! And if you add some more goodies to make your cart worth $50, you can get FREE SHIPPING on domestic orders plus a free surprise!

Hero Arts Acetate Cards

Hi Friends!! Kristina here having some fun with Hero Arts Acetate Cards!
There are so many things you can do with them, but I thought it would be fun to use some
translucent embossing paste for a slight hint of dimension while retaining the clear card.

I used the Hero Arts Bold Floral stencil and applied the embossing paste over the entire card front.
While that was drying I die cut a little fishtail flag and did some stamping.

First I stamped the cake from the Make A Wish Birthday stamp set and covered it with masking fluid.
Next I used the Hero Arts Confetti background stamp, followed by stamping the sentiment over top.
After removing the making fluid I colored and decorated my cake and covered it with
glossy accents for some more clear pop!

Here’s a close up!
