A Hero Arts Retailer


Holly Jolly


Hi everyone, I just want to start out by saying I can’t believe it’s almost November already!!! Time is flying by and I can’t believe Halloween is Monday and I am not ready! That being said I’m moving on to my card… that is Christmas (Gotta get more of a stash built).


I started by cutting my little angled panel. Added some metallic red stripped washi from my stash to the edges, before stamping my sentiment. I added some greenery on the card base so that it would peek out around my panel. I popped my panel on the card using some pop dots and went over the sentiment with wink of stella. Below is a better look at the metallic tape and shimmery sentiment.

Hello y’all! Monica here today to share a CAS card for our May challenge. There is still plenty of time to play along and enter the challenge here.

When I saw this stamp from Hero Arts I knew I had to have it! I haven’t been back to Texas in years but still considerate home.

TX watercolor card

I stamped and heat embossed my image on a watercolor card. Then using watercolors, painted my background to look like the state flag. It’s hard to tell in the picture but I did add a little bit of very diluted black on the white are of the flag, to try and help the embossing stand out a little.

TX watercolor card close up

This ended up being a very quick card and with a few more would a great note card set. Hero Arts released other city/ state related stamps in the last release.  The shop still has some in stock (they have been pretty popular)!
