Home for the Holidays with Hero Arts

Home for the Holidays, Hero Arts

I made this little scene for the Winter Wonderland challenge at a2z Scrapbooking.  While this is actually a Christmas set,  you can use the little houses any time of year! I can picture the roaring fire, everyone hanging around drinking hot cocoa {real hot cocoa, not the mix kind}, all snug in their flannel pajamas.  Works for me! A perfect restful scene after the hectic holidays!

Thanks so much for stopping by! You can all the details on what I used to create this card by going to Art Without Anxiety, my personal blog.

Hero Arts Winter Forest Halloween card

Hi all! I’m back after a month long forced break as I went back to France for a week to work but had to stay for a month! I didn’t have any of my craft supplies with me and my withdrawal systems were so severe I had to drink quite alot to compensate… LoL! I’m joking! (well not really…)

winter forest halloween

Anyway, all that just to say that I’m SOOOO happy to be back and making card and today’s card uses Hero Arts Winter Forest Digi stamp from the a2z Scrapbooking store which I decided to transform in to a Halloween card!  This is my first Halloween card as we don’t send Halloween cards in Europe but as our current challenge is to make “Frightfully Fun” cards, I thought I’d challenge myself.

I first prepared my background by blending in Ranger’s distress inks and went over it all with Hero Arts Black ink. This is the first time I’ve used their inks to blend and they go on really well! I then flicked on some water. I formatted & printed the rows of trees from the digi stamp set which contains 8 stamps around the main image and 12 extras, like paper and other Christmas digi images.

I used just the row of trees and once they were printed on my background, I drew in the tree branches, with any black marker, to make them look even spookier! To draw in the spooky wolves eyes, I used my Derwent line painter which are pens that contain acrylic paint, so they’re great to colour over distress inks. The white specks are also from a white Derwent pen. I wanted to use a Hero Arts stamp for the sentiment and found this from their Color layering hydrangeas set which I stamped in white and went over with my yellow Derwent pen.. I thought it quite funny to suggest that it’s the wolves that are here for you… just waiting for you… or it could also mean that I’m here to keep all those bad things away.

Well I hope you liked how I transformed this Christmas digi stamp into a Halloween card. Thanks for stopping by and have a great Creative week!

Hero Arts Poppies Sympathy card

Hi all.   I’m here to share another beautiful Poppies card with you.   Today I pulled out some Hero Arts Ink cubes to make a sympathy card.  I choose colours that would give a soft ethereal look

 

The use of the Soft Granite for the third layer added to the ethereal look.   The colours I used are listed in my supplies list below.   I have them all in cubes from different sets.  I added a thin line of gold pen around the outside of my panel and some splatters of watered down Gold Glitz ink.   The sentiment is from an older Hero Arts set (CL476 – Retired)

I also decorated an envelope to match

Hero Arts – Sending You Love

Hello everyone!

It’s Donna and the challenge for this month is “Any Shade of Red”.  You can link your project here. Please be sure that your project contains at least ONE main HERO ART Product as the focal element!

For my card, I used different shades of Hero Arts red inks for my background.  I cut the heart from the Hero Arts So Sorry Stamp & Cut set and the “love” die cut and sentiment is from the Hero Arts Love Stamp and Cut set.  I finished my card off by adding some splattering of red paint and red sequins.

A Fishy Birthday with Hero Arts

Happy Wednesday friends!  Hope your week is going by well…I’m personally looking forward to the 4 day weekend for Thanksgiving!!

Today’s card was made for a friend that loves fishes.  I used the fun Hero Arts Color Layering Goldfish with matching dies and Hero Arts Inks in Pale Tomato and Strawberry Hybrid Ink then topped with Hero Arts Clear Embossing powder for a little shine.

The confetti background and balloon is from Hero Arts Balloon Animal Birthday with matching dies.

For added fun I made the fish “swim” through the water using a slider die cut and a penny behind the fish.  There are tons of YouTube videos that you can watch to make a penny slider card.  I love interactive cards.

That’s it for me today!  Don’t forget about our monthly challenge for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the store.
