Hello You’re So Lovely

 

Hi everyone, it’s Angie here with another CAS card to hopefully inspire you to join in the fun challenge at a2zscrapbooking blog this month!  There’s still time to enter and you could win a $25 gift certificate to the A2Z Scrapbooking Store!  You can read all about it – HERE!

I used the Hero Arts set “You’re so Lovely” to stamp inside the masked area, I  used 2 stamps, (the little berries on the branch and the “hello” stamp) from the set and heat embossed them in white, then inked multiple colors of ink on the strip.  I removed the masking and let the inks dry, then stamped a bunch of little hearts all over the rest of the card and heat embossed it in clear so you can’t really see it – it just gives a nice effect.  You could use any stamp you like to do this for a subtle background.  I wrapped some twine around the colored section, then mounted it on fun foam, then a black panel, then a white folded card.

Here’s a list of the supplies I used:

Beautiful Day Watercolor

FullSizeRender

Hi everyone, it’s Angie hoping to inspire you to join in the fun this month at A2Z Scrapbooking with our April watercolor challenge.  For all the details, click HERE.  Just be sure to use one main Hero Arts product to enter!

I used the new release set from Hero Arts You’re So Lovely stamps (CL949) and Hero Arts You’re So Lovely frame cuts (DL167)  along with Hero Arts Shadow Inks and Hero Arts Hues Black Dye Ink to make leaves and berries on the left of the card.

I used watercolor paper, inks from Zig markers, an acrylic block, paint brushes and a water spray bottle  to make the background.  (Just lay some ink on the block, spray it and your paper and use the brush to bring color to your paper.)  Next, I cut it out with a scalloped stitched rectangle frame die for interest around the outside edges and put it back together with tape on the back.  I cut stitched circles from the top center watercolor panel, from turquoise card stock, and from fun foam.  I mounted the turquoise stitched frame and the whole large panel on fun foam and attached it to a turquoise card base, then added the little water drops from my stash.  After I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, I inset the greeting circle down in the opening.  Lastly, added the leaves and berries on the left side.  Then I cleaned all my stamps with Hero Arts Ultra Clean Stamp Cleaner NK202.

I had so much fun watercoloring – I’m sure you will too!  Give it a try and join us for this month’s challenge!

Chirp Up Soon

Hi everyone, Angie here with a fun card to cheer (or chirp) you up!  It goes along with our March challenge, embossing!  Hope you can play along – to enter click here.

I used a bird stamp from the Hero Arts Digital Instant Download Feathered Friends DK029 sold exclusively at A2Z Scrapbooking Shop.  I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers, then die cut him with a stitched circle die.  For the background, I took the Hero Arts Bold Floral Stencil SA067 (will be back in stock soon) and placed it over the kraft card stock and inked it with Versamark directly from the ink pad.  Then I heat embossed it in Hero Arts clear embossing powder.  I die cut the kraft panel into 3 pieces with curved dotted border dies before adhering it to the white panel.  The greeting is from Hero Arts CL866 Layering Bird and Branch set (also will be back in stock soon).  There is also a matching die set:  Hero Arts DI148 Frame Cuts.   I attached the whole top panel to a kraft card base.

If you need craft items, shop at A2ZScrapbooking Store!

NOTICE: It looks like we’re having a bit of trouble with our InLinkz Link-up on our blog. It seems to have a mind of its own and disappeared from the side-bar. However, it found a home on the first day of March here. The DT are trying to put it back where it came from, but until you see it in the usual place on the top right side, you’ll be able to enter here

Hi everyone, Angie here with another card made with some of my favorite Hero Arts products!  I hope you will have a chance to join in our March Embossing Challenge:  HERE

I used the Hero Arts D1159 Paper Layering Mum to make a mask and used the negative to sponge yellow ink, then lightly stamped a script stamp from my stash on the petals within the negative mask.

 I then masked the flower and added leaves from the Hero Arts Cl949 You’re So Lovely stamp set in green ink.  I highlighted the center veins with darker green marker and added a gem in the center.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts CL922 Acts of Kindness set from Jennifer McGuire, stamped in Hero Arts black ink and heat embossed with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder.

Lastly I added a strip of black and white washi tape down the left side.

If you need craft items, don’t forget you can just special order from the         A2ZScrapbooking Store.

HELLO BEAUTIFUL SUNFLOWER

I have a cheery Sunflower Hello Beautiful card for you!  It’s also my first post as a Design Team member here at A2ZScrapbooking. I’m so excited to be here!

I did a little masking in honor of our A2ZScrapbooking February Challenge.  Hope you can play along with us this month – winner of the challenge gets a $25 gift certificate to the A2ZScrapbooking Etsy Store .  

Just be sure your project contains one main HERO ARTS product!

Hello Sunflower 1

I used the sunflower from the Hero Arts Digital set Poetic Petals DT004 printed it out twice, once for the card-one for a mask.

I sponged Hero Arts Ombre Inks on the stamp.   ( Mint to Green and Butter to Orange).  I fussy cut the 2nd flower, used as a mask and stamped the “Hello” stamp from Hero Arts Hello Stamp and Die set, to peek out from behind the flower.

Hello Sunflower 3

I made matching paper by dragging the ink pads on cardstock.   I cut 3 “Hello’s” with “Stick It” paper on the back, making it quick to  stack them.  I stacked fun foam, green, and black for dimension.

Hello Sunflower 2

I stamped “beautiful” on the banner, added a mini black brad on one end and popped it up.   I used some stiched rectangle dies from my stash to make the different layers.

Lastly I put Wink of Stella on the flower for extra shimmer.

Hello Sunflower 4

Maybe someone you know needs a “pick-me-up” card – the Hello Stamp and Die set has many different sentiments to chose from and make the perfect card to lift their spirits!
