Case a Designer with Hero Arts Vintage Travel

Delia made a scrapbook page that I found beautiful, using the Vintage Travel Digital stamps.on her first post here.  I cased this layout for a card.  Isn’t this layout beautiful?

I did not make my card as vintage as the layout, but I like it.

 

Close-up of the camera’s picture.

I used Judi-Kins Embossable Window Plastic with two rows of foam tape to pop the camera up.

 

The double row of foam tape keeps the sequins loose enough to move freely as seen below.

I hope you like my CASE of Delia’s scrapbook.  You can catch me at A Bit of This and That.

Hero Arts Flutterbies Digital Box card

Hi all.  It’s Anything Goes this month at our challenge.  So I’m here to show you a card in a box I made using the Digital kit called Flutterbies Printable PT006.  A2Z are the sole supplier of Hero Arts Digital kits and stamps.  I really like the way I can choose the size I print my images at.

I started by sizing my digital stamp in a Word document and then copying the size so I had 6 images.  I used some Canson XL water colour paper and printed out my sheet.  I then used some watercolour paint to make lots of colourful butterflies.   I also printed one at slightly butterfly as well and water coloured.   I fussy cut all the butterflies and made my card in a box.   I used some patterned paper by Craftworks which looks like watercolour.  I added a little bit of trellis die on my back panel and added the larger butterfly.   For my front sentiment I used another Hero Art Digital kit – Say it in Pieces.  I took two of the sentiments – made a circle in Word and coloured it green and added the sentiments.  Added a teeny punched butterfly.  My green leaves are a Hero Arts Fancy Die Spring Fling (Discontinued)

Oven Mitt with Produce And Seeds

Hello there,

It is a very special Monday for me, it’s my 24th wedding anniversary today!!  So it’s the perfect opportunity for me to make a very special shaped card for my DH.

I used the oven mitt in the Hero Arts Cooking Fun Digitial Kit as a template for my card shape (after I resized it using an image editing tool).  It measures 4.75 by 3.5 inches.

 

My process:

  • Resize and print Oven mitt from Hero Arts Cooking Fun Digitial Kit on printing paper.  Use it as guide and cut out front panel and folded card using white card stock.
  • Stamp cabbage image from Hero Arts Produce and Seeds  on scrap paper three times, trim closely and use as masks for next step.
  • Stamp cabbage trio image using Jet Black Archival ink on oven mitt panel.  Stamp the first image, then mask it, stamp the second and repeat for the third.  Mask the last cabbage
  • Align the small hearts from Hero Arts Love Stamp and Cut set on acrylic block, stamp on oven mitt panel in criss-cross fashion using Hero Arts Pink to Red Ombre Ink.
  • Remove mask and color cabbage trio using watercolors.
  • Stamp the sentiments in black.
  • Add faux stitches using black marker.
  • Stamp the Heart stitch from Hero Arts Love Stamp and Cut in black.
  • Use inking tool and distress oven mitt with Spun Sugar and then Ripe Persimmon.
  • Glue oven mitt panel onto shape card base.

Here’s a close up.

Hero Arts Special Birthday Digital Kit DK116 Take Shape Card

Hi! It’s Sue and I have a new card to show you. It would be a good card to enter in the current monthly challenge at a2z Scrapbooking. More about the current challenge, later.

Here’s my card

I started with the sentiment, from a Hero Arts digital kit (details below). I’m still not very good at using digital stamps. However, I did figure out how to change the colour, from the standard black to a nice royal blue and print it on cardstock. Then, using a Hero Arts stencil (details below), distress inks (picked raspberry, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, peacock feathers and wilted violet) and ink daubers, I randomly inked up the stars around the sentiment. It seems kind of festive, to me – don’t you think? I was at a loss what to do next. Then, I remembered this month’s challenge and die cut the panel into a large circle. Using a larger circle die, I cut the purple mat and the circle card – just be sure to remember to “overlap” one edge of the circle, beyond the fold of the card or you’ll end up with two circles, instead of a circle card – don’t ask me how I know this!

A Calendar Bold Prints w/ Hero Arts Stamps

Home made calendar.  The first photo shows the front and back covers of my calendar.  They are cut from a Graphics 45 paper pad (12″ X 12″).  No idea of the name of the paper pad or when I purchased it.  I just fell in love the the cover and it’s perfect for my calendar.  No stamping yet.  The poinsettia is die cut from a Elizabeth Craft Designs die here.  I had made it and not used it.  It’s the perfect color and I just had to use it on the cover.

I chose double-sided papers to go into the calendar and stamped front and back of each page with the Hero Arts Calendar Bold Prints stamp.  I was wondering if some of the patterns would obscure the stamp, but it didn’t.  I have no trouble making notes and printing and using digital stamps and regular stamping on the pages. The umbrellas are from a Hero Arts cut file at A2Z   I started my calendar mid-March and April is on the back of March.  June is on the back of the May Calendar page.  I have all kinds of notes and love the page.  A key die-cut from a soda can is covered with a silver pen.

May is a celebration of Carnaval in San Francisco on May 27 and 28.  That’s why I chose the paper and Destination San Francisco stamp which can be custom ordered through A2Z or at Hero Arts here..

You can see the calendar below the “APRIL” die cut letters.   I can still write dates and info in the squares.  I stamped the umbrella with the wood block Destination Paris stamp on the umbrella.  The umbrellas are from a cut files available at A2Z, called Weather Cuts Digital File.

The butterflies for June are from a stamp set available at A2Z Scrapbooking called Hero Arts Color Layering Butterflies.

July is bright and cherry with flowers as the background.   I thought the new stamp set Hero Arts Enjoy the Journey was perfect for this enchanting background.  A bottle with some nautical images is perfect for this calendar.  I know I will enjoy this so much.

The pattern for August may not be as imposing or enchanting as other patterns, but I would love to travel out of the hot valley here in Sacramento, maybe in a ship.

The ships from Enjoy the Journey work for me.

You can catch me at A Bit of This and That.

Hero Arts – You are very Special

Hi  I’m here today to share a Hybrid card for you…. that’s a card with some stamping and some digital elements.  A2Zscrapbooking is an official carrier of Hero Arts Digital kits.

 

 

The stamping on the background is a very old Hero Arts stamp set…. but never fear, this stamp set is also available as a Digital kit ( Hero Arts Brush and Splatter Kit DK103)  I used a variety of Hero Arts Inks which I will list below.   I then printed the sentiment onto the stamped card.  I used a digital image from Hero Arts Special Birthday Digital Kit DK116.  Use of the digital images is so easy and makes a great impact.

POETIC PETALS DIGITAL FILE HERO ARTS

POETIC PETALS DIGITAL FILE HERO ARTS

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia with you! The spring is almost here but our challenge is not ending so I decided combine these two elements in one card for you today using Poetic Petals a Digital File from Hero Arts, maybe one of my favorites from the entire collection. Take a look at my card:

POETIC PETALS DIGITAL FILE HERO ARTS

To create this card I used Cherry Cobbler card stock for the base and a decorated piece of paper for the second layer. I simply decorated this layer with a few loops of natural hemp twine that I finished with a tiny bow on the left side.

I printed the Blossom C from the Poetic Petals Digital File over whisper white card stock, colored it with Copic Markers and then fussy cut with my scissors. I cut an oval with a die cut and pasted the Blossom C over the left side of the oval. Then I stamped word by word a sentiment from the stamp set Celebrate Tag Stamp & Cut by Lia from Hero Arts using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. Finally I pasted the decorated piece over the base using dimensionals and added some black heart sequins.

POETIC PETALS DIGITAL FILE HERO ARTS

You can find Poetic Petals Digital File  and more digital files like this in the a2z scrapbooking store where you can enjoy 15% off with my discount code MARTHA15. If there’s ever something you want that you don’t see in store, use the custom order button. It’s easy, quick and you won’t pay more!

I hope you will join us in the challenge this month. You have until the end of the month to submit your project for a chance at a $25 Gift Card, and the theme of February is Any Shade of Red!!!

Hero Arts Digital Chalkboard Label – handmade Bath Salts

Christmas wishes – Dawn here with a little gift idea.  I made several of these for my friends.

I made the salts and then using Microsoft Word, I added the words to the Hero Arts Digital Frame (DK113)  I printed onto an Avery Label and fussy cut and stuck to the Jar.   The frames in this digital kit are all fabulous.

Holiday Houses with Nesting Dies

Embellish a Holiday House on a Hero Arts Tag

Time to embellish a tag.   I like seeing lots of snow ready to fall, but I don’t have to live in it.  I can see snow on the mountains in the winter and that’s good enough for me.  If I want to get closer, I can take a couple hours drive and bingo.    I guess that’s why I loaded this house with snow.  I like to see it.  I really like the new Nesting Tag dies too.  This is the larges and a really great size.  I paired the smallest of the tag set for a HO HO HO.

Be sure to visit the fun stamps and digital sets at A2Z.
