Hero Arts Santa Snacks

Happy Sunday everyone!

Cindy here to share a “Winter/Christmas” project.  Today happens to be my second time hosting a cookie exchange.  And I prepare a little cookie recipe album for each of my guests.  My Hero Arts Santa Snacks Stamp and Cut set is perfect for the front and back cover of my project.

 

On white card stock I stamped the images in random fashion using Vintage Photo, and then watercolored.  I used a white gel pen to fill in the icing outlines.  Both the tree on the cup and the gingerbread men’s buttons are painted with gold ink.  The stars on the tree are coated with Candy Cane Stickles, and the marshmallows are coated with Sprinkled Sugar.

 

The banners and labels are glued and I added faux stitch with a Gold Gel pen.

 

I had lots of fun coloring in the stamp images, I made 5 albums!  For the back cover, I just stamp left it uncolored.  For more details, please visit my blog Escape To Stamping.  The holiday season is upon us, hope you’d have some time for crafty time besides getting ready for the festivities!

Hero Arts Peonies Thanks

Hello,

Cindy here to share another Thank You card.  Who says Peonies are only for Spring and Summer?  I bet you can use it all year long!  I used my favorite Fall colors and Peonies for my project, and I like it!  🙂

 

The outlines of the Peonies looks like gold heat embossing, but it is actually foiling.  I first clear heat embossed the peonies and then I reheat part by part and place foil sheet over it and press down with bone folder.

 

The sentiment from the same Peonies set is stamped in black and clear heat embossed.  And I added a few sequins to complete the card.  Hop over to my blog, Escape To Stamping to get more details.

The Hero Arts Peonies Clear Stamp set is really pretty.  It is still available at a2z Scrapbooking.  Get your own today.  Scroll down to get my promote code and save yourself 15% of any purchases $25 or over before shipping.  Remember to Request Custom Order if you don’t see the items you want in the store.

Wait!!  Don’t go just yet.  The On Sale section in the a2z store is 50% off right now.  Lots of goodies there including Christmas stuff, like this one, this one, this one, this one, and this one.  Hurry before they’re all gone.  Click Here.

Hero Arts Color Layering Pomegranate Thanks

Hi everyone,

 

I am sharing a Thank You card featuring Hero Arts Color Layering Pomegranate today.  I did the usual stamp and watercolor, but for the Pomegranates I die cut with the matching frame and watercolor only.  I was happy with the result but they needed some ‘zing’, to enhance the look I used a very unusual element – beet juice!  Yup you read it right.

 

 

I share a comparison of the card before beet juice on my blog, you can check it there, Escape To Stamping.

Hero Arts Haunted Digi with orange sky

Hi everybody,

 

I must admit I am not very good at making Halloween card, but I think the Hero Arts Haunted digi kit helped me a lot!!  LOL

 

I resized the haunted house image to fit the height of my card, but it does not fill up the width, so I had to copy and paste part of it, and printed on white card stock.

The orange sky is created by sponging Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and Barn Door.  Trees, bats and ‘Boo’ are stamped in black.  The Jack O’Lantern are stamped on separate card stock, colored and hand cut, then adhered to card base.  And I used coloring pencil to fill in the windows.

Miss You Sew Much

Hi everybody,

Today I share a CAS ‘miss you’ card, it is inspired by my mom.  She was a seamstress, and she taught me how to use the sewing machine.  I miss her much!!

 

To make my CAS card, I used an image editor to remove color, and to resize the sewing machine image and printed twice.   Once on pattern paper, and another on white card stock (image positioned on right side of the card stock, so when folded the image would be on the card front) with the sentiment placed underneath it.  I rendered the image printed on pattern paper with coloring pencils, hand cut, and then adhered to the card base.  I added colored to the thread, and hand drawn thread to connect the sentiment.  To ground the sewing machine I added Washi tape in similar colors.  The final touch was glossy accent on some buttons and decor on the sewing machine, and I rounded the corners of my card.

 

We are having a Design Team Call right now, do you love Hero Arts products and crafting?  Yes?  Check details Here.

CAS Greenery Hugs

Hi,

Cindy here to share a CAS sympathy/friendship card.  Today’s card features the Hero Arts Holiday Greenery Edge Fancy Die.  This die is so pretty and so delicate.

 

On white card stock (trimmed to fit a A2 card) I did dry embossing on the top and lower edge using the Fancy Die and an embossing mat.   I mount this onto a white A2 card base.  Next I adhere the heart die cut (with white heat embossed sentiment and faux stitches) in the center of the card with foam adhesive.  Then I die cut using a different color card stock, trim part of the die cut (with coat of Perfect Pearl) and use to embellish the heart die cut.

Have you  join in our CAS challenge yet?  I hope I’ve inspired you to play along!  Scroll down to find more details.

Color Layering Poinsettia Trio

Happy Sunday everyone,

So glad you stop by.  I am sharing a trio of cards created using the same stamp.

 

As soon as I got my Color Layering Poinsettia Stamp set, I experimented with various color combinations.  The reds one were easier.  But it took me many tries to get the white/yellow ones to my liking.

One of my favorite new supply is the Hero Art Glimmer Metallic Gold Ink.  I diluted it with some water, and use a flat, toothed watercolor brush to draw shimmery gold strips on white card stock.  Then I cut it up and used it on all three cards.  I am quite happy how these turned out.

For more details on each of my cards, hop over to my blog Escape To Stamping.

Hero Arts Peonies Pop-up Card

Hello there.

You know owning floral stamps is great.  Cause you could stamp a pretty flower anytime and make beautiful floral cards .   Today I tried a new technique I learnt by watching Jennifer McGuire’s video here.  And made a milestone birthday card.

In Jennifer’s video the pop up image is flushed with the window, but I didn’t want to cut my pretty bloom so I decide to let part of it extend outside the window.

    

I have to cover up the upper right corner inside of the card (forgot to take photos before writing it, haha).

The Peony bloom, leaves and buds are all gold heat embossed and watercolored.  On some of the petals I added a coat of Perfect Pearl solution.  The sentiment is also gold heat embossed.

I had lots of fun making this card, and I can promise you this is not the last one I would make!  😀

Have you seen all the goodies from the Hero Arts 2018 Season of Wonder Catalog in the a2z store?  Go check it out and have some shopping fun.  Remember to click Request Custom Order if you don’t see the items you want in the store.  Scroll down to get my discount code.

Hero Arts Nasturtium Ornaments

Hi everybody,  Cindy here to share a holiday card.  But first thing first, goodies from the Hero Arts 2018 Season of Wonder Catalog has arrived in the store.  Get a head start and shop for you favorite holiday supplies.

So I have been making ahead holiday cards to build up a good stash.  Today I paired the Ornament Infinity Dies and Hero Florals Nasturtium to create a floral ornament.

I first stamp and heat emboss the Nasturtium on white card stock with Gold Glitter Embossing Powder.  Then I die cut the ornament, and gave it a slight coat of Buttercup shimmer spray.  Then I adhere it on my card base which has a pattern scalloped panel.  The sentiment is gold heat embossed and it’s from the Color Layering Poinsettia Clear Stamp set which is the Hero Arts 2018 Season of Wonder Catalog.

 

The Gold Glitter Embossing is really glittery and shiny, isn’t it?  Since I got my supplies out, I made three cards all at once.  The cards are 4 by 5 1/2 inch so it is perfect to cut three card base out of a 12 by 12 card stock.  Remember to scroll down to get my discount code for you shopping fun, and remember to use the Request Custom Order if you don’t see the items in the a2z store.
