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!

Watercolor Love

Hello everyone!!  It’s Kymona from Kreative Kymona and I’m here today sharing one of my favorite mediums.

It’s Watercoloring!!!

I love watercoloring.  Its a time to play and be free spirited with what you are working on.

Let me show you what I mean. Take a look at my card:

Watercolor Love

What do you think? I love these two colors together.  They just works so well together.

How my card was created:

1. I used painters tape to cover 1″ of my card panel on all 4 sides.

2. I added water to the center of the card so that my paint could move freely.

3. Then I added my two colors to the watercolor color paper.

4. I used my heat tool to dry my card panel.

5. I used the heart from Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Hearts set to stamp the hearts in the center of the panel.

6. I added a faux stitched line around the watercolor panel and Hero Arts Gems for some interest.

7. I added my card panel to my black card base.

Wow, isn’t this the cutest valentines day card you seen in December, LOL!!

Well, now its your turn!!

All of the supplies I used can be found at the a2z Scrapbooking Store. If you would like to purchase any of the supplies I used please head on over to the store and use the coupon code KYMONA15 to get 15% off your purchase.

It’s Black Friday!!!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  So much food, family and friends.  I love this time of year because I get to spend it with my sibling.  All of us live in different states, so when the holidays roll around we get together and have an amazing time. Now that the food, fun and reminiscing are over its time to shop.  So many great deals all over the place.  I even saw on the news that a lady is having a Black Friday sale on her house.  Whoever made an offer today, will get the house for $10,000 less.  LOL, I can’t knock her.  Everyone loves and needs a  deal, right!

But before I get into what we have in store for you, I want to share the card I made with all of you. Our current challenge is:

Anything Goes copy

My card uses on of my favorite Hero Arts stamp set and die.  Take a look at my card:

Warm Wishes

I love this snowman!  I think he so cute.  I love how we can decorate him however we want.  I also thought he was appropriate for my post today since everyone shops for Christmas presents today.  This little guy should get you ready for a long lines today.

Take a closer look at the glitter on his hat and scarf:

Warm Wishes close up

Isn’t he just the cutest!!  I combined this set with the sentiment from the Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Let it Snow set.

To create the base of the card:

I cut the white cardstock to 1.5 inches by 5.25.  I cut the raspberry ripple cardstock to 1/2″ and adhered it to the back of the white cardstock.

I stamped my sentiment with Hero Arts Raspberry Jam mid-tone ink.

I adhered the pieces to the card base.  I adhered the snowman with foam tape.  I stamped some mini snow flakes to the card to make it look like it was snowing.

I added some Hero Arts Gems for added embellishments.

My snow man was sponged with Hero Arts Tide Pool mid-tone ink.  I colored his nose with Copic YR04 and YR07.  I added Clear Wink of Stella on the hat and scarf.

I added a couple faux stitched lines for added interest.

So what do you think of my snowman!!  Let me know!!  I would love to hear from you!!

Just Because….

Hello everyone!! Kymona here from Kreative Kymona, with a cute “Just Because” card that combines two Hero Arts products, which is what for our current challenge!!

Before I begin, I want to let all of you know that the winner for September’s challenge will be announced at noon.

The following stamp set that I used has such a pretty flower in the set.  It gave me a chance to sit and color the flower.  I even taped it for you to see how I colored and put the card together!  That’s a big deal, since this would be my second video ever!!

Take a look at my card:

Just Because 2

Tell me that flower doesn’t look amazing!!!

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cute my card stock to an A2 size (4.25 x 5.50). The pattern paper is cut to 3 x 4.50. The top white panel is cut to 2.50 x 3.75.

2. I colored my flower using Copic markers YR02, YR04, YR07 and Y15.

3. The sentiment was stamped and the flower attached with some foam adhesive.

4. I added some bakers twine between the flower and the sentiment.

5. The white panel is adhered to the card with foam adhesive.

6. I added the Diamond Gems for added inspiration and some Wink of Stella to the flower.

Nice simple and easy.

Now take a look at my video! Its in fast motion
