Hero Arts Color Layering Pineapple Birthday

Hi Stampers!

Ilina’s here today! This month’s challenge is shaped cards. For my card today I used the Color Layering pineapple (I am still in vacation mood ;)). I stamped the pineapples using the MISTI stamping tool, then I die cut all the pineapples. I stamped the sentiment from Birthday Animals Silhouettes with Hero Arts Intense black ink on white panel.

Created my card base from White card stock using top folding card base and running it through my die cut machine with the postage stamp die slightly off the top-so the top doesn’t cut) then adhered a Grass layer on top (that way you don’t see that the top part-the folded part on the card base is missing). Arranged everything on it and voila 😉

And don’t forget to use the code “Ilina15” in order to get 15% on your next order from A2Z Scrapbooking store. If you like something and don’t see it in the store make sure you do “request custom order” and it’ll be ordered for you 😉

I adhered it to my panel and then onto my white card base. Added White Crystal Nuvo drops as finishing touch.

Hero Arts Woof and Purr meet Honeycomb stencil

Hi everyone!

Ilina’s here today with a playful and simple card. This month’s challenge is to use stencils, so for my card I used the Honeycomb stencil. I used the new Purr and Woof stamp sets along with the oldie but goodies Hello Stamp and Cut set (and this set is on sale in the shop- links are at the bottom of this post)

I used the new Honeycomb stencil to add some dimension to the background. For the cat I used mirror image stamp in order to turn its tale to the opposite side.

Color Layering Bird and a Branch from Hero Arts

Hi stampers!

Ilina’s here today and I am sharing a colorful but simple card. For my card I used the oldie but goodie set from Hero Arts called Color Layering Bird and Branch. For my background I used Neenah white 110 lb card stock and some Distress Oxide inks to blend the background, then I spritzed some water to create the little splatters. I was trying to achieve a background mimicking sunset. I stamped the bird on white card stock and trimmed with paper snips.

Next I assembled my front panel and adhered it to black card base.

Scroll down to watch the video on how I created this card.

And don’t forget to play along with this month’s challenge which is “Any shade of red” and shop over at A2ZScrapbooking store

Sending love with Hero Arts Color Layering Bouquet

Hi stampers!

Ilina’s here today and I am sharing a simple Valentine-ish card. I used the oldie but goodie set from Hero Arts called Color Layering Bouquet. The challenge this month is “Any shade of red” so I used Royal red and Pale tomato, along with one of the new colors Fresh Lawn.

I have a video to go with this card, but my 3yr old wasn’t feeling well, so I didn’t get a chance to edit it. I will post it later, so if you like you can come back later to watch the video.
