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)

Can I still say Happy New Year?   It’s only the 6th and it’s my first post for 2017 – so Happy New Year!

It’s also time to start thinking of those Valentine’s card as well…. today I have one to share that is made with a digital flower and sentiment.

I used some Patterned Paper from a Grace Taylor pad to cover my card base.  I then printed the Pretty Blossoms Printable Digital Kit PT002 at 50% onto white card and coloured with Prismacolor Pencils and added some white gel pen dots.   I then printed the sentiment from Say it in Pieces DK030 set, before using an older Hero Arts die cut label to cut out a tag.   Added some metallic thread behind the flower.  How easy is that!  A2Z Scrapbooking has lots of Hero Arts Digital kits (see them all HERE)   Awesome for using on your projects.

Here’s a close up of the flower

CAS with Brush & Splatter Digital Stamps

Good morning crafty friends, Amy here to share with you my recent make using two Digital Sets from Hero Arts. In keeping with the CAS Challenge this month, I made a card using Hero Arts Brush and Splatter Digital Set and Hero Arts Say It In Pieces Digital Set. I love mixing and matching  and coloring digital sets- a great way to make the most out of your stamp sets!

May 10th

I used the brushstrokes from the Hero Arts Brush and Splatter Digital Set and changed the colors to Purple and Green using my Photo Software. Then I layered the Heart from the same set over it.  Finished with the sentiment from the Hero Arts Say It In Pieces Digital Set. Printed it onto White cardstock and adhered it onto some red and black cardstock and finished with red enamel dots.

I added some Wink of Stella to the heart for added shimmer and voila a fun and easy card that is sure to brighten someone’s day!

Sew Stylish!

Hi Crafty friends, Amy here, to share with you how to dress up your digital Images with a little distressing, ink and embellies from your stash.

Sew Stylish

I used  images from the Hero Arts Make Your Own DK016 and Hero Arts Sew Crafty DK027 Digital sets. These sets are both jam packed with crafty goodness! So much to use and work with.

I printed the Stylish Ladies from the Hero Arts Make Your Own DK016  set in Sepia onto white cardstock and trimmed around the image and distressed the edges using the Tim Holtz Paper Distressing Tool and then inking the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I adhered this to a piece of scrap from my stash that looked like fabric to me and distress the edges of that too. Both pieces were mounted onto Kraft cardstock cut to 4.24×5.5′ and made into a top fold card.

I then used a Chipboard Dressform I had in my stash and covered it in Gesso and then brushed on some “Scarab Beetle” Twinkling H20’s which lends a vintage feel and color to it. Some Ivory Mesh and Rose Ribbon and gold pearls from my stash finish it off.

Sew Stylish Dressform

Next I printed the a sentiment to tie my theme all together from the Hero Arts Make Your Own DK016 set and mounted inked the edges with the Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I printed and cut out a spool of thread from the Hero Arts Sew Crafty DK027 set which I colored in with my Spectrum Noir Markers.

There you have it, a shabby chic card made using Hero Arts Digital Images, a little distressing and some embellies from your stash!
