Hero Arts Prayers

Hi friends – welcome back to a super simple card – TOTALLY CAS (clean and simple)! I recently received some 4 bar note cards and have LOVED using them for quick cards. And since we are focusing on sentiments this month, I thought this was the perfect size for a card truly focusing on the sentiment! And don’t forget to play for your chance to win; link up your card HERE!

And don’t forget, you can save 15% off your order when shopping the Etsy store, just use code: MicheleG15!


I used the Hero Arts You’re So Lovely stamp set and only embossed the foilage with white embossing powder. I had seen something very similar on Jennifer McGuire’s Instagram account and knew it would be fun to try!

Once embossed, I die cut ‘prayers’ from the center (uh…should have saved those inside pieces, WHOOPS) and sponged on Worn Lipstick oxide ink and Fired Brick distress ink. I embossed the rest of the sentiment on black card stock and mounted with dimensional tape, added more black cardstock behind the sentiment, swiped the top and bottom of the 4 bar card with Worn Lipstick oxide ink and that’s it! Super simple yet very striking.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you will join our challenge this month; you can link up YOUR projects HERE!

Hero Arts Sunshine Flowers and Prayers

Hi there,  Angie here today with a card for our Anything Goes Challenge!  Hope you can join in the fun and be eligible to win a $25 gift card to the a2z store!  Just make sure you use one main Hero Arts product on your creation!

I made this with the Hero Arts Digital set called Sunshine Flowers, the image is called Flower Face.

Did you know that a2z is the exclusive retailer of Hero Arts digital stamps!  They have a great selection to choose from HERE!  Not only are they affordable (starting at $2.49), you get them within an instant as a download, ready to use!

I printed the images with a toner printer and cut them out then foiled them in rainbow foil in my foiling machine.  I also foiled the sentiment in the same rainbow foil.  I attached the flowers to the card base, some with pop dots for dimension.  The center of the flowers are gems from my stash. I cut the top panel with a stitched scalloped rectangle die and another panel for the inside.  (There are two more flowers on the inside.)  The card base is kraft card stock.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies used for my card were:

Gems from my stash

I took extra pictures from many angles because the colors change depending on the angle of the light!

Happy New Year to all of you!!  I can’t believe it’s 2017 already!!  Just the other day I was writing the 2016 new year blog post!!  I feel like we blinked and 2017 was here!  LOL!!

While I have your attention I wanted to take this time to let you know about the cause that a2z Scrapbooking supports!

Camp Gluten Freedom started in 2010 as a vision for Celiac and Food Allergic children to have a safe camp experience. Every child deserves the chance to go to camp, and their gluten-free or other allergen avoidance diet shouldn’t stand in their way! They can accommodate children with dietary restrictions during any camp session, but have put together some special meals and options for an integrated camp for gluten-free/allergen free children from ages 7-17.  The 2017 session is from June 11-17.

So thank you so much for your continued support! It goes a long way! We hope to have another great year!
