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

Clean and Simple Stenciling

Hello everyone!!  Kymona here today to show you how to create a clean and simple stenciling card!!

When you think of stenciling you don’t think clean and simple in the same sentence.  That’s because stenciling requires inks, brushes, blending tools, paste and other supplies that might be messy, but not always.

I’m going to show you!

Remember this formula when you think of Clean and Simple (CAS) cards:

Plenty of white space + a simple design that can be repeated with ease + little to no embellishment = Clean and Simple!

Take a look:

clean and simple stenciling

Gather all of your supplies.  I used the following:

Here is how I created my card:

Tape down the cardstock so that it doesn’t shift.

Then tape down the stencil where you want the design to appear on your cardstock.

taping down the stencil and inks used

 

Use the ink blending tool to add the ink color to the bottom portion of the card.  Blend the colors creates a great effect.

Do not ink up the entire card front.  Remember we want to create a Clean and Simple card!

Stamp your sentiment right above the stenciling leaving the top nice and white.

I have to confess, I wasn’t going to add any embellishments but some of the black ink from the sentiment must have been on my finger and it appeared on one of the flowers.  So I needed to cover it up.  I really didn’t want to make another card, so I used the sequin to cover up my smudge.

It all worked out!!

Take another look:

What do you think? Will you join us and challenge yourself and create a Clean and Simple card using a stencil?  Let me know below.  I would love to hear what you think about this technique.

Rainbow Chrysanthemum

Hi Everyone,

this is Cornelia here today sharing my second post this month for A2Z Scrapbooking.

Perhaps you know that we have a CAS challenge at A2Z Scrapbooking this month and perhaps you want to play along! I am also keeping it clean and simple with my card:

A2z 7-2015 (5)

I first inked up my paper in rainbow colors and then die cut it using the Hero Arts Chrysanthemum die (DI062). Glued it onto the cardstock. The sentiment is heat embossed and from the set Hello Sunshine. I mounted it onto a scrap piece of PP and added some of the petals from the die.

So Proud

Hi Everyone, this is my first post for at A2Z Scrapbooking! I am so proud to be on this fabulous team! There is also a CAS challenge at A2Z Scrapbooking this month and I thought I stick with that – after all that is what I like to do the most .

I love that Hero Arts stamp set – all those cute little critters! And you can buy it at the A2z Scrapbooking store

CL755

I stamped the owl and colored it with water color pencils. Made myself a mask with a post it note and masked it. Took a punch, made another mask and sponged the circle with Distress inks. Cut a strip of patterned paper and glued it onto the card stock. Heat embossed the sentiment and mounted it with foam tape. Added home made enamel dots, that I have stashed away…
