Simple Valentine Cards

Happy Aloha Monday friends!  Niki G. back with an idea for that simple loved one.  Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I’ve got a couple of cards to share that can be quickly made using the Hero Arts set Stamp Your Own Fruit that is currently on sale in the store!  Here’s the cards…

I simply stamped the fruit out randomly on Hero Arts Kraft paper in Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink.  The sentiment was masked off each time except for the focus image.  To make the main image standout I colored them in with Faber Castell Paper Crafter Crayons.  I even outlined them with the crayons to create more depth.  The sentiment was then stamped in Hero Arts India Ink Black to really stand out.  It stamps perfectly over the crayon coloring!

The Kraft panel was die cut using a stitched rectangle die and mounted on coordinating cardstock colors.  The lemon card is from Hero Arts Mixed Sunshine Layering Paper.  I think the simplicity would be perfect for masculine cards.

I hope you’ll join in on our fun challenge this month: Masking for your chance to win $25 to the a2z Scrapbooking Store!

Mahalo for stopping by!

Watercolor Love

Hello everyone!!  It’s Kymona from Kreative Kymona and I’m here today sharing one of my favorite mediums.

It’s Watercoloring!!!

I love watercoloring.  Its a time to play and be free spirited with what you are working on.

Let me show you what I mean. Take a look at my card:

Watercolor Love

What do you think? I love these two colors together.  They just works so well together.

How my card was created:

1. I used painters tape to cover 1″ of my card panel on all 4 sides.

2. I added water to the center of the card so that my paint could move freely.

3. Then I added my two colors to the watercolor color paper.

4. I used my heat tool to dry my card panel.

5. I used the heart from Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Hearts set to stamp the hearts in the center of the panel.

6. I added a faux stitched line around the watercolor panel and Hero Arts Gems for some interest.

7. I added my card panel to my black card base.

Wow, isn’t this the cutest valentines day card you seen in December, LOL!!
