Hero Arts Hello in Pink to Red Ombre

Hi friends, welcome back!

I made this uber CAS (clean and simple) card – so quick, so easy and just think of all the color combos you can use! Wouldn’t a set of these cards in a variety of colors be a beautiful gift? Since we are using shades of red this month, I used two ink pads – Hero Arts Intense Black and Hero Arts Pink to Red Ombre. I very lightly sponged on some pink at the bottom and let it fade out towards the top.


I stamped random flowers and leaves from two stamp sets – For You Flower and You’re So Lovely. I used two layers of micropore tape for my baseline of stamping but some of the ink still seeped through; that’s okay, it’s handmade and not every single card can be perfection, RIGHT! I added a few pops of black to compliment the sentiment and finished it off with 3 enamel accents. So easy peasy!

Hi, friends, Chark here today with a card that would fit right in with this month’s challenge of Make It Pop. I used some bumpy paper for the texture and added embossed star strips to the corner.



Inside, I made a very simple pop-up card by cutting two slits in a piece of cardstock and folding it outward. You can see in this picture what I mean.

I used dark blue cardstock and attached my greeting to the front piece.

It was pretty simple to make and adds a fun element to a card for kids…or for anyone!

Hope you’ll join in our December challenge here by Making it Pop and using a main Hero Arts product on your project!

Happy Wednesday!
