Hero Arts Paper Layering Heart Card


The challenge this month at a2z Scrapbooking is this amazing Mood board.  I was so inspired by this board I now have multiple projects going on all around my craft room – the colors lend themselves to loads of projects, for all kinds of cards, not just Valentine’s day!

I received this die in a mystery box I purchased and I’ve been waiting for the right time to use it and I think this was the perfect time!  I hope you find the Mood Board as inspiring as I did and you enter a project into the February a2z Scrapbooking challenge.  Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

I, just like everyone else, have been inspired by some recent ombre shading using a stencil inspired by Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire (just search YouTube, you’ll find their videos. :D). I used some MFT Steel Gray card stock as my base and sponged on the gray/black inks in THIS set over the Bold Floral stencil. I die cut the LOVE multiple times from Hero Arts red card stock and layered together; sponged on some Unicorn ink on the top portion of the top LOVE word and once dry, coated in glossy accents. I embossed the small sentiment on vellum, adhered it all together on a red card base and added a black enamel heart.

Baby’s Footprint Memory Necklace Giveaway

Hello everyone!!  Kymona here with a super cute Baby’s Footprint Memory Necklace project for you!! I have to admit, I had so much fun with this months challenge, Anything but a Card.  It forced me to step out of my comfort zone.

Take a look at what I created for you today:


I love how this necklace turned out.  So pretty and elegant at the same time.

When I was contemplating on what to create, I looked at all of the Hero Art stamp sets that I own.  When my hand fell on the So Sorry Stamp and Cut set, it hit me.  The tiny feet will fit inside the circle frame of the Heart Key Tray. Which I thought was perfect since it had two hearts on it. One for the mother and one for the baby!!

Here is how I created this necklace:

  1. I found a scrap piece of watercolor paper that I created awhile ago.
  2. I stamped the tiny feet on the piece of scrap with Hero Arts Black Ink and let it dry.
  3. Then I added glue to the back of the glass piece and pressed it on top of the tiny feet.
  4. Then I cleaned away all of the excess glue with Q-tip.
  5. Once the glue dried, I cut around the glass.
  6. I placed a piece of super stick tape inside the heart tray.
  7. I added the glass piece to the tray.
  8. Then I added the ball chain to finish off the necklace.

So what do you think?  Wouldn’t it be nice to either get or receive a necklace like this. I hope this month has challenged you to really step out of your comfort zone and use your crafting supplies to create something other then a card!
