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!

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.

DIY Gift Basket with Hero Arts Vintage Christmas Wishes stamp set


Last Minute Gifts with Hero Arts Vintage Christmas Wishes Stamp Set

Hello every one… Helen is here today would love to share with you last minute gift ideas that you can create with Hero Arts Stamp Set.

Today, I am using the Vintage Christmas Wishes stamp set on both of my projects: Gift Basket and Mug Gift set.

DIY Gift Basket with Hero Arts - Vintage Christmas Wishes stamp set

First is the gift basket. I stamped the snowman from Vintage Christmas Wishes stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black on white tissue paper. And I stamped the tree from the same stamp set on the cover of the kraft note pad.

I used the stamped tissue paper to decorate the base of the gift basket and I filled it with note book, gel pens and post it notes. This gift is perfect for a teacher 🙂

DIY Mug Gift with Hero Arts - Vintage Christmas Wishes stamp set

On my second gift, I stamped the tree from Vintage Christmas Wishes stamp set on white ceramic mug with StazOn brown ink. Before I stamp the image, I cleaned the mug with alcohol wipes to remove any grease on it then I stamped it on the three sides of the mug.

I used the other stamped tissue paper to decorate this mug, too, and I filled it with hot cocoa and some candy cane candies. This would be a great gift for teacher, school bus driver, friend, or even your kids 🙂

Under The Sea

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today with some Under The Sea fun. I used my new stamp set, Anchors Aweigh, to create a gift tin you can fill with shells, beach glass or even just candy! I found the metal tin at the Dollar Spot at Target and it already had a chalkboard circle on the lid.


I stamped the lighthouse and birds with the Hero Arts White Unicorn ink and set it aside to dry. Then I trimmed a piece of 12×12 blue cardstock to fit the tin. I started stamping with my Distress Inks and the fish, starfish and coral stamps to make an underwater scene. I adhere the paper to the tin with roller adhesive and then added pearls as bubbles.

Here’s a closeup of the lid and side.


IMG_7038For the big fish, I used both Distress Inks and then the White Unicorn ink on top to give the fish some dimension. This was so easy and fun to make! I love these new stamps and am already thinking of a card to make with them…I’m thinking a clear card will be just right!


Hope you’ll join in our July challenge here and make a Clean and Simple project with your Hero Arts stamps and stencils. And, if you need some new supplies, don’t forget that every a2z Scrapbooking Supplies purchase helps support charity! Recently, Camp Gluten Freedom in Indiana benefited from purchases made at a2z Scrapbooking Supplies.

Glad you stopped by…and if you’re already thinking Christmas, we’ve got you covered! Hero Arts has just released some fabulous new ombre inks and stamps. Check it out at the store!
