Kitchen Silhouettes & Cooking Fun Gift Card

bonapetit main wm.jpg

Hi everyone, it’s Angie today and I have a fun extra large sized card to share with you today.  I used two digital sets for this card:  Kitchen Silhouettes and Cooking Fun.  Both sets are available exclusively at a2zscrapbooking store!

Also now available in the store is  Gina K Designs Premium card stock.  If you haven’t tried this card stock you are missing out!  It’s available in the store and it’s 120 lb. weight and just as smooth and creamy as you can possibly imagine!

I wanted to make a card with a restaurant gift card inside, so I could write more on the inside since gift card holders are usually too small to write on.  So I used the Thank You stamp set from a Hero Arts Kit – set that also had the add-on gift card die from a Hero Arts kit a few months ago.  There was also a die that came with the set.  Here’s a link to the Thank You die-cut that matches the stamp set.

This card is 6″ by 6″.  I put the blue silhouette background digi stamp in MS Word and added the Bon Appetit from the Kitchen Fun set, on top of the background.  Then I cut it out with a large square postage stamp die from my stash.  I matted it on black card stock, then added it to some patterned paper from my stash.  If you scroll down you can see the inside of the card where the gift card holder is and also the matching envelope I made.  Since this card was an odd size, I knew I would have to make the envelope to fit it!

What a fast card!  Digital stamps are especially great when you are in a hurry!  I think I will be using these fun cooking/kitchen digital stamps a lot, especially for when I give homemade goodies away, or invite friends over for dinner!

Here I’ve used the Love Stamp and Die set DC175 for my sentiment and the Hero Arts Deco Pattern Stencil SA105 with some embossing paste.  I die cut the 6 love dies, 3 from watercolored paper that I used Distress Oxide Inks on, and 3 black ones for shadows.  I’ve also used Hero Arts white embossing powder and a strip of pattern paper from my stash.  I added some shimmer to the die cuts with Spectrum Noir glitter pen.

Embellished Hero Arts Paper Layering Daisy Card – Hello Stamp and Cut

hello nov 15th embellished card a2z.jpg

I had so much fun making this embellished card!  I used the Hero Arts DI181 Paper Layering Daisy die set to cut the flower out of plaid patterned paper, then used the outside die that comes with the set to give the dark brown background under the petals.  I used patterned paper from my stash in oranges and browns and yellow to create the layers on this card.  The sentiment is a die from the Hero Arts Hello Stamp and Die set DC151 cut from brown card stock and then sparkled up with some Wink of Stella.  I used circle and rectangle dies from my stash to cut the layers.  I added the layers to a Hero Arts White Card base PS566 and added tons of gems.  Some were Hero Arts and other were from my stash.  You can find great gems in many colors in the store click HERE!

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!

Boo Stamp and Cut

Hi, friends, it’s Chark today. I’m so excited that Halloween is on its way that I had to share my Boo Stamp and Cut tag that I made. Love this new stamp and die set, as you can see, I only used the die and the word Boo and didn’t use the faces or ghost stamps. That’ll be another project!

IMG_1949

I die cut the large ghost from black cardstock, stamped the word “boo” on it in Unicorn White ink and added some craft foam (also die cut) to make a shaker card.

IMG_1955

The acetate was from an acetate notecard trimmed down and some of the sequins are actually nail art glitters from the dollar store. They came in cute little bottles and I knew they’d make good confetti for shaker cards…plus they were $1!

DC189-500x500

I added bright green paper behind the tag and the striped ribbon to finish it off. This will be cute on a little Halloween gift bag I think.

Hope you’ll join us for the new September Challenge, Make it a Tag, with your Hero Arts stamps, dies, stencils or digis (there are great Halloween digis in the store) because you could win a $25 gift code to the store!

Happy Friday!
