Hero Arts Paper Layering Heart Card


The challenge this month at a2z Scrapbooking is this amazing Mood board.  I was so inspired by this board I now have multiple projects going on all around my craft room – the colors lend themselves to loads of projects, for all kinds of cards, not just Valentine’s day!

I received this die in a mystery box I purchased and I’ve been waiting for the right time to use it and I think this was the perfect time!  I hope you find the Mood Board as inspiring as I did and you enter a project into the February a2z Scrapbooking challenge.  Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Paper Layering Daisy Hello


Angie here today with a fun card with lots of red on it for our February Challenge!

I copied the technique Jennifer McGuire recently showed in a video.  I varied it a little by cutting the daisy out of the center, and popped the daisy and the sentiments  up on fun foam.  The little black notes are a tiny punch I have in my stash.

I used Hero Arts DI181 Paper Layering Daisy, Hero Arts Hello stamp and die set, Hero Arts CG691 Garden Bold Prints background stamp (out of stock but you can special order it), Hero Arts White Embossing powder, white and black card stock, Hero Arts Red Ink.

I hope you will have time to join in the fun for this month’s  challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the a2zscrapbooking store.

Embellished Hero Arts Paper Layering Daisy Card – Hello Stamp and Cut

hello nov 15th embellished card a2z.jpg

I had so much fun making this embellished card!  I used the Hero Arts DI181 Paper Layering Daisy die set to cut the flower out of plaid patterned paper, then used the outside die that comes with the set to give the dark brown background under the petals.  I used patterned paper from my stash in oranges and browns and yellow to create the layers on this card.  The sentiment is a die from the Hero Arts Hello Stamp and Die set DC151 cut from brown card stock and then sparkled up with some Wink of Stella.  I used circle and rectangle dies from my stash to cut the layers.  I added the layers to a Hero Arts White Card base PS566 and added tons of gems.  Some were Hero Arts and other were from my stash.  You can find great gems in many colors in the store click HERE!

I hope you will have time to join us this month for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the a2zscrapbooking store.  Just remember to use one main Hero Arts product and link up your card HERE.  Good Luck!

Peace, Love and Joy

Hi stampers!

Ilina’s here today with an unconventional Christmas card. This month’s challenge theme is ” Layer it”, so I decided to use the Paper Layering snowflakes dies.

I started with a piece of white card stock and die cut the snowflakes, next using the infinity dies I cut my panel and with the next larger die  I cut rectangle from the silver glitter paper.

Next I die cut the Peace sentiment from blue glitter paper ( before I die cut I applied Stick It adhesive on the back), then adhered to my main panel and stamped the rest of the sentiment using Tide Pool Ink. I layered everything together and adhered to  Pool note card (the darkest from the collection). To finish it up I added sequins and gems.

Hero Arts Paper Layering Heart Lavender

Hello there,

Cindy here to share a card with a fun card front.  Whew!  Almost a tongue twister!  🙂

Let’s get right to it:



Not your usual half fold card front?






Here’s my process:

  • Fold a Hero Arts Floral Mixed Folder card inside out, so the white side is the outside.
  • Trim off 1 3/4 inch off from the right side of the card front.
  • Use pencil to lightly mark where the stamping of the floral heart (from the Love By Lia set) on the card front and inside of the card.
  • Stamp floral heart with Hero Arts Ombre Ink Light to Dark Purple on card front and left side of the inside.  Let ink dried, erase pencil mark.
  • Place Hero Arts Paper Layering Heart die cut side down on card front and secure with Washi tape.  Unfold card so it’s flat.  Sandwich it with the proper plates and pass it thru the die cut machine.  Remove die.
  • Make a score line for easy folding and fold back every other part of layering pieces towards the right hand side.  Glue down to the edge of card.
  • Stamp and heat emboss with gold embossing powder sentiment and three Nested Heart from the So Sorry Stamp & Cut set.


I hope I’ve inspired you to play along this month’s challenge – To Die For, use a Hero Arts die cut.   Check out the details and challenge rules (click the corresponding tab on top of page).
