This month’s challenge over at a2zscrapbooking blog is:   “Layer It” Challenge!

oct-2016

There’s still a little time left till the linky closes at the end of the month, so I hope you can play along!!!

For this card I used a stencil to create layers and stamped the sentiment, gloves and hat in Hero Arts Black ink and colored them with my alcohol markers.

  I used Hero Arts DC193 Kelly’s S’Mitten Stamp and Cut set along with the Hero Arts SA078 Forest Scene Stencil  to make this quick and easy card.  I sprayed the whole card with shimmer spray – hard to see it in the pictures!  Lastly I added a tiny red bow!

I hope you will have time to join us this month for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the a2zscrapbooking store.  Just remember to use one main Hero Arts product and link up your card HERE.  Good Luck!

Don’t forget, you can use code Angie15 to get 15% off your purchase of $25 or more (excluding shipping) at the a2zscrapbooking store.  The new release products are in the store now so have fun shopping!

 These are the supplies I used from the store:

Christmas Trimmings Stamp & Cut

wm-main-1

I’m so glad that a2z is hosting this month’s “Layer It” Challenge!  Christmas is getting closer and I wanted to start building my stash of holiday cards.  For this card I used both multiple layers of card stock stacked up with the sentiment die to make it pop up more, and used the layering stamps for the bow and the leaves!  Hero Arts layering stamps are so easy to use and make your projects have such great depth!

I used a Hero Arts Mermaid Ombre AF365 Ink Pad and just swiped it down a panel of card stock.  I used Hero Arts DC195 Christmas Trimmings Stamp and Cut set for all the leaves, bow, and sentiment.   In addition I used Hero Arts AF247 Fresh Peach Mid-Tone shadow Ink.   I added dots of silver Nuvo glitter drops to the mistletoe berries die cuts.

I hope you will have time to join us this month for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the a2zscrapbooking store.  Just remember to use one main Hero Arts product and link up your card HERE.  Good Luck!

Kelly’s S’Mitten & Christmas Messages

smittens-christmas-messages

I’m so glad that a2z is hosting this month’s “Make it a Tag” Challenge!  Christmas is getting closer and I wanted to start building my stash of holiday gift tags.

I used the new Hero Arts Mermaid Ombre AF365 Ink Pad and just swiped it down 3 of these tags, then added some Hero Arts Silver embossing powder on one and stamped the others with Hero Arts Black Dye Ink.  I used Hero Arts Kelly’s Smitten Stamp and Cut DC193 along with Hero Arts Christmas Messages CM100 for the sentiments.  I finished them off with dots of Nuvo glitter drops and some silver twine from my stash.

I hope you will have time to join us this month for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the a2zscrapbooking store.  Just remember to use one main Hero Arts product and link up your card HERE.  Good Luck!

Spiral Notes (Forest Scene, Candy Stripe & You’re So Lovely)

forest candy strip youre so lovely notes wm

Hi there, it’s Angie here with a fun quick project that makes a great gift or a fun item to use yourself!  It’s a small spiral notebook from the discount store covered with fun paper, stamping, ribbon and gems!

For the book on the right, I used Hero Arts “You’re So Lovely” CL949 stamp set with a few inks on some patterned paper, then adhered it to the front cover and back cover of a small spiral notebook.  I added a couple of Hero Arts gems and some thin ribbon around the edges to finish it off.

For the book on the left, I used some brand new products and an older set.  The new products were Hero Arts Forest Scene Stencil SA078 and Hero Arts Candy Stripe Bold Prints Background Stamp CG681.  I used the stencil with Hero Arts Ombre Ink in Mint to Green for the top section and the background stamp for the bottom section.  I added ribbon and the sentiment was stamped on white card stock is from an older stamp and die set called Hero Arts Handmade Tags DC139.

I use one of these notebooks all the time, carry it in my purse, and always have something to jot notes in.  (And they make great gifts too!)

Hope you will take the time to enter our challenge this month here: Color it in!  Just remember to use one main Hero Arts product to be eligible to win the $25 gift certificate to the store!  Woohoo!

Tree-mendous & Holiday Houses

main wm one

Hi there, it’s Angie here with a great way to quickly make Christmas and holiday cards!  The a2zscrapbooking store is the exclusive retailer of digital stamps for Hero Arts and they have a lot of digital stamps available!  Here I used a set called “Holiday Houses” and for my second card I used a set called “Tree-mendous”.  They are so easy to download and use and they are very reasonably priced!

I printed up the images I wanted and colored them in with watercolor and/or alcohol markers, added Wink of Stella for shine and then die cut them along with some black mats and adhered it all to a piece of patterned paper and then a folded card base.  I added a twine bow and I was finished in no time at all!

Hope you will take the time to enter our challenge this month here: Color it in!  Just remember to use one main Hero Arts product to be eligible to win the $25 gift certificate to the store!  Woohoo!

Hello Gorgeous Swallowtail Fancy Butterfly

Hello Gorgeous wm main

Happy mid-August – I can’t believe how fast this month is flying by!  I hope you will find time to join our “Color it In” Challenge this month.  Coloring is such a great way to relieve stress and back to school can be quite stressful, so take some time for yourself and do some relaxing coloring to enter the challenge and you might be the winner of a $25 gift certificate to the a2zscrapbooking store!

For these two cards I masked off the middle of the card and put a few masks of the Hero Arts DL133 Swallowtail Fancy Butterfly die and colored around them with a sponge dauber and Distress Inks.  Then while the ink was still wet, I sprayed a background script stamp with water and stamped it on the inked portion to lift some of the color off.  Then I sprayed some shine on with shimmer spray.  I finished the top and bottom off with some striped washi tape and a white embossed sentiment from Hero Arts CL924 Hello Gorgeous stamp set.

Hope you will take the time to enter our challenge this month here: Color it in!  Just remember to use one main Hero Arts product to be eligible to win the $25 gift certificate to the store!  Woohoo!

Color Layering Flamingo

Hi everyone, it’s Angie here with a card made with the Hero Arts Layering Flamingo stamp and frame cut sets!   I hope you will enter this month’s “Anything Goes” challenge at the a2zscrapbooking blog.  You can win a $25 gift certificate to the store – just remember to use one main Hero Arts product!

I stamped the flamingo with my Mini Misti and die cut it, plus another white one and one out of fun foam.  Then I cut one out of the red panel and stacked all the dies together to give the flamingo dimension.  I added the other stamps and sentiment (from the same set) and then mounted it on a piece of black card stock, then onto a white card.  The edges of the card have dotted washi tape on them.  Lastly I added some water droplets from my stash and a little Wink of Stella on the darkest parts of the flamingo.

Remember if you need supplies, even ones you don’t see in the a2z store, you can special order them (Request Custom Order) and don’t forget to use code Angie 15!  This way you can get 15% off your order totaling $25 or more!

Fireflies – Hero Arts Mason Jar Bugs

Hi everyone!  Hope you will enter the challenge over at a2zscrapbooking blog this month.  You could be the lucky winner of a $25 gift certificate to the store – just remember to use one main Hero Arts product!

July Challenge Theme:  Anything Goes!

I just love the stamp set I used to make this card because it is so versatile.  It doesn’t just have bugs, it has flowers and a mason jar, beautiful butterflies, leaves and branch/stems, a net, sweet sentiments and some very useful tiny stamps that could be used for many things.  The frame cuts are the perfect match and cut so easily!  With this combination you can make cards for just about anyone, kids, adults….

   

I inked the background with distress ink, then cut the jar from speckled vellum.  For the bugs,  I stamped, colored and added Wink of Stella then used the matching frame cuts. I flicked  some white paint and shimmer spray with a paint brush to make stars in the sky.  Then I added a few fireflies under and over the vellum  jar and added Wink of Stella to it to give it some sparkle.  Lastly, I heat embossed the sentiment and added a little twine on it.

 

I hope you can join the July Anything Goes Challenge at a2z!
