Hero Arts Gingerbread House in Blue

I have loved the 2018 Christmas selection of stamps and I had to use the gingerbread house in a non-traditional way.  Gingerbread is not only for Christmas.  I know it seems as though everything is floasting, but they somehow float together in harmony.  Well, that’s the way I see it.  And I have to ask you, if I hadn’t come right out and told you the house was a gingerbread house, would you have suspected immediately and exclaimed, “OH MY, It’s a Gingerbread House”?

Love You More

Hello Crafty Friends – Annie here with a CAS card.

This month we’re using a Mood Board to inspire us

No photo description available.

I am using the Instant Download Hero Arts Winged Friends DK033 Butterfly Digital Kit Hero Arts Stamp & Cut LOVE Set DC175

20190226_213202

I simply printed the digital download and cut the dragonfly I wanted to work with from the rest. Colored it in with some Arteza Real Brush Markers for a soft watercolor effect.  Then, Fussy cut it. Next, I die cut the word LOVE twice – once from plain white cardstock one once from Rinea Ruby Glossy Foil Paper. Stack and glued the layers to create a chipboard word. I stamped the sentiment You More on white cardstock and cut it into a thin strip. I adhered all the elements on to card front panel which measures 4″ X 5-1/4″ I made from tone on tone pink pattern paper and medium gray cardstock for a nice mat. I then stamped a few hearts for a dragonfly trail. Finished it all off with some small gray and pink sequins and a bit of Wink of Stella on the wings.

Hero Arts Scribble Bold Print

Happy Saturday!!

Cindy here to share another project inspired by this month’s challenge theme:  Mood Board.

47392877_10161287443590475_6616865640290451456_n

The meringue with cream and strawberry look so yummy, it inspired me to make an ombre color tall cake.

 

The colors of cake layers closely resemble the color scheme in the inspiration photo, I use the foam/cream image from the Coffee Cup Tag set to be the cream in between the cake layers.  And I stamped, watercolored, and hand cut some strawberries for the cake embellishment.

For the background I gold heat embossed the Scribble Bold Print onto a charcoal grey card stock panel.  The sentiment is from the Altenew Cake Love set.

 

I hope I’ve inspired you to play along, scroll down to get the challenge details and join in the fun!

Hero Arts Spiral Stencil With Words Of Love

I’ve used the Spiral Stencil in several different colors over the past 6 months or so.  I do like this in an orange to red gradation and I thought hearts are red and this would fit February.  A bit of Love goes a LONG way and this fits my mood.

The dark color is a gray, but this is a mood board, not a color board.  I couldn’t tell for sure because the box looks navy blue to me.

Hero Arts Words of Love

February is here and I wanted to show you how I keep my schedules for my DT work.  I used Hero Arts digital “Words of Love” as well as “Notes and Dates” to make my schedule for 2019.  It feels fresh and bright.  I love looking at this page and making entries on my insert.

There’s quite a contrast to 2018 and I LIKE IT.  I loved the flower when I made it, but I’m lovin’ the Words of Love.

Hello crafty friends! Thank you for stopping by and I am hoping my post will give you some inspiration to join us here at a2z Scrapbooking’s January 2019 challenge.  With a theme like “Anything Goes” you must have some Hero Arts {or Sugartree} products around somewhere that you can use to whip up a quick card; and if you feel like you need just a few more goodies feel free to scroll the the bottom of this post and grab my discount.  There are still a few days left for you to enter so get making! You don’t have to use Hero Arts or Sugartree products but if you do you will be in the running for a $20 gift certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking etsy store!

prairie final 2

I received the Hero Arts On the Prairie Fancy die set in a gift package and I was stumped on how I was going to use it.  I’ve always been a fan of Southwestern Art so I loved the set and it seemed that a card just couldn’t do it justice.  So I decided to make a wall hanging.  I hope you like it as much as I do!  If you are interested in seeing how this was made feel free to jump on over to my personal blog, Art Without Anxiety.   Hope to see your creations in the challenge! See you soon!

Celebrate the New Year with Hero Arts

Yes, I am a tad late, but why not celebrate as long as you can?!? I made this card for the current a2z Scrapbooking challenge, Anything Goes {personally my favorite theme!}. I used a bunch of embellishments, embossing powders and metallic papers to give this card the festive feel a celebration deserves!  I used a bunch of embellishments, embossing powders and metallic papers to give this card the festive feel a celebration deserves!  I hope you had a fabulous New Year and if you’d like to see all the details of this card please pop over to my blog, Art Without Anxiety.  Thanks SO much for stopping by!

Hero Arts Greenery Edge is Anything Goes

I’m not really a flower person, but I do have to say, I really like the Hero Arts magnolia stamp and that it has a matching die. I made this a simple card so it could be used for just about any occasion. It looks quite striking in real life.

Hero Arts Nesting Tag Die

Hero Arts Tag Die Cutting

Howdy! Welcome to a new year! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. They can be hectic but very nice with all the  family gatherings, decorations and of course delicious food.

Hero Arts Tag Infinity Dies

When I thought about a card to make I decided it would be for my brother. You know those sometimes hard to make masculine cards. So here we are with a safari theme which I think can work for a male or female.

I used the Hero Arts Tag Infinity dies to cut out, guess what, a tag. Then out came the Oxide Distress Inks. I blended 2 purples and 1 blue ink on Bristol paper.

I cut out the sunset circle using a die from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero June 2017 set and also used Bristol paper and blended Oxide inks. You can get this die by itself from Hero Arts.

For the tree and animals I blended some Black Soot Oxide Distress ink on Neenah paper and then cut them out using the dies from the My Monthly Hero kit. In real life they look like a chalky black. Note: Instead of the animal dies you could use Hero Arts Color Layering Elephant stamp set in the a2z Scrapbooking Etsy store.  Hero Arts also has several sets that include lot’s of fun safari animals, trees, sentiments both dies and stamps.

For the background I stamped with Quick Quotes ink using the Hero Arts Mud Cloth Bold Prints stamp.

Guest Designer December 2018

 

 

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone,

Please join me and welcome our December Guest Designer.  She is a former a2z Scrapbooking Supplies design team member, a very talented lady, and had designed for many stamp company including Hero Arts.  She has her own blog, and is very active in multiple social medias.  And she is Martha Lucia Gomez!  Welcome Martha!!  The floor is yours.

============================================================================================

Hello there! Today I have a card that I made with my heart. I was part of A2Z Scrapbooking Design Team for several years and they are always in my heart. Today I have the opportunity to share my last winter card as Guest Designer and it is an honor for me because all these ladies and Linda are always in my heart.

My last winter card

The base of my card is Highland Heather card stock and the second layer is a piece of decorated paper. I added a third layer using whisper white card stock and I stamped a combination of winter images from the stamp set Vintage Christmas Winter from Hero Arts. This stamp set is special for me because it was a Linda´s present to me.

My last winter card

I used a rock and roll technique with each image combining different colors of Hero Arts Ink to stamp the trees and sentiments. I used Pine, Moss and Green Apple with a few touches of Cup O’ Joe. Then in a separate piece of whisper white card stock, I stamped three times the snowman included on the Vintage Christmas set using Soft Pool Ink and added a thin coat of wing of stella to the complete stamped images.

My last winter card

As final touch I added the complemented sentiment using one image included on the stamp set Coffee Cup Tags with a thin line of foil. I also added some jewels to complete the final touch.

I wish you a blessed and happy New Year 2019! Keep in mind that we control our own sentiments and decisions and God is always with us!

Happy New Year 2019!!!
