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!!!

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 Christmas Mice Will Surprise One of My Sons

I think these mice are the cutest and even work for grown sons.  I made this card as a gift card and had such fun putting these mice into nooks and crannies.  I couldn’t help myself.  Easy to color and die cut.

I’m sure the cheese will bring out a Xmas mouse on the insdie of my card.

I have three other gift cards on my blog if you’d like to see what my family is receiving as part of their Winter gifts at A Bit of This and that.

Merry Christmas – Polar Bear Greetings

Hello Crafty Friends – Annie here with a softer color version of Christmas colors. This month’s theme is Winter Wonderland in keeping with this I wanted to have the colors of my card soft.

I used soft pink and soft green instead of the traditional red and green. These colors go perfect with the Polar Bear Greeting stamps in creating a winter wonderland scene.

Hero Arts Gingerbread House Stamp and Cut Just For You

I think these houses are so festive and the background I made from two dies which added to the spacial aspect of the card.  It’s whimsical and so very cute.

I used an edging die as a background on which to build my houses.  I sent this off to Annie Collins and she has received it so I can reveal my card.  To see how I decorated the inside of the card be sure to stop by my blog at A Bit of This and That

A close-up of the houses.  They really do take on the Christmas charm colored this way.

Digi Duel Featuring Holiday Tags

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here with the last Digi Duel of the year featuring me and Arlene this month. I’ve had a blast doing these duels, where two DT member use the same Hero Arts digital stamps (exclusively sold through a2z) and come up with two projects. It’s always interesting to me as a crafter to see how different people use the same stamps.

il_570xN.632270384_nzsc

This Holiday Tags digi stamp set is perfect for the holidays and if you’re at all like me, you might think you have plenty of tags and then realize you used them up last year. Digital stamps to the rescue! You just print and cut and you’re all set–no need to color them either!

Here’s the set of holiday tags Arlene has ready for her gift-giving. The little elves are from a clear stamp set and you can always find some kind of elf stamp at Hero Arts if this set has sold out.

I framed the Merry Background with strips of red printed cardstock and added a tiny ribbon to a brown paper bag and called it good!

Chark’s Supplies:

• Hero Arts digital kit Holiday Tags                                                                                                    • Hero Arts digital kit Merry Background 

I hope you’ll enter our monthly challenge (see the link in the blog header) to try to win this digital stamp set and maybe even $20 to the store!

Happy Holidays!

Hero Arts Holiday Greenery Edge With A Bit of Dazzle

I saw the Holiday Greenery Edge used in the Hero Arts (HA) Catalog, but wondered how it would look with two dies, opposed to each other on a card.  I was surprised to see that a white background and green die cut was a smart, sharp combination.

Here is my inspiration card for A2Z Scrapbooking.

Another view below

 

I like the inspiration this HA page in the Winter 2018 Catalog..

I used Nuvo Red Berry to do the berries on the die-cut and joined them together with berries facing the outside of the card.  A glittery gold tape conceals the space where the dies join.  A small stamped “Merry Christmas” completes the card.  Simple and simply delightful to look at.  My post is also at A Bit of This and That.

Hero Arts You Are Appreciated

Hello everyone! Here is the card I made for my second monthly post at a2z Scrapbooking.  I was thumbing through some of my older Stamper’s Sampler magazines, specifically a “Catch Up Issue” and it reminded me of how we used to decorate cards with fibers.  I still have a HUGE drawer full of fibers, so I dug some out to decorate this card:

YouAreAppreciated a2z

 

I hope you can find some time to join me and all my talented teammates in the a2z Scrapbooking monthly challenge; the November theme is “Give Thanks.”  Can’t have enough thank you cards on hand if you ask me! For all the details on how I made this card please pop over to my personal bog, Art Without Anxiety.   Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my post! You are appreciated!!
