Gold Embossing

Hi Everyone,

this is Cornelia here today using embossing paste and one of my favorite Hero Arts dies – the Palm die. You probably know that this month A2Z Scrapbooking challenge is all about using embossing paste and perhaps you want to play along! I am also keeping it clean and simple with my card:

I used the Hero Arts Triangle stencil (SA059) with Wendi Vecchi Gold embossing paste. Let it dry. Added the palm leaves die cut in heavy duty vellum and a little leftover snippet from a prior card in gold. The sentiment is from the Hello Sunshine set (Cl776), heat embossed in white and mounted with foam tape.

Rainbow Chrysanthemum

Hi Everyone,

this is Cornelia here today sharing my second post this month for A2Z Scrapbooking.

Perhaps you know that we have a CAS challenge at A2Z Scrapbooking this month and perhaps you want to play along! I am also keeping it clean and simple with my card:

A2z 7-2015 (5)

I first inked up my paper in rainbow colors and then die cut it using the Hero Arts Chrysanthemum die (DI062). Glued it onto the cardstock. The sentiment is heat embossed and from the set Hello Sunshine. I mounted it onto a scrap piece of PP and added some of the petals from the die.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Whether or not it’s cold where you are, imagine snowflakes and maybe you’ll see them in this die like I did. It’s actually called Blooming Flower Die, but I thought “snowflake” when I bought it.

blooming flowerIt’s Chark here today with a simple winter project. The process is easy, but it does take a little time to put a 3-D snowflake together, just because it’s delicate. I used blue glitter paper, teal foiled paper and white cardstock. I liked white cardstock like Hero Arts layering paper the best—especially after I added the Diamond Stickles.

IMG_2970 IMG_2973 IMG_2979 The foil paper and the glitter papers worked fine, but the back of each is white, so when you fold and glue, you might see a bit of that white peeking through. You could always ink the back to match the color of your paper (though it won’t be shiny) if you don’t love the white.

To make your own snowflakes

1. Die cut 5 flower shapes and fold each one in half, with the glitter/foil side folded toward the inside.

2. Adhere the outside (the white side of the paper) of one shape to the outside (the white side) of the next shape.

3. Glue all 5 together and add an ornament hook, string or wire to attach the snowflake to a Christmas tree.

You could also string these to hang on a mantle or staircase banister. I used clear liquid glue, but white glue or a glue dot runner would work too. Tape runners won’t work, since the tape might show through the die cut holes. I added the Stickles to the all-white one by just squeezing some out and running my fingers along the snowflake to cover. You can see the glitter a little in this photo.

IMG_3036I love the look of these and plan to make some more white sparkly ones to hang on my dining room chandelier for the holiday season.
