Using Hero Arts Digital Stamps: Complete Card in Microsoft Word

Hero Arts Holiday Houses

Hi Everyone! For todays post a created an entire card in Microsoft Word using Hero Arts Digital Stamps. As part of our video series on using digitals, I’ve included a view tutorial below showing the process start to finish. The video will go through how to set up your canvas, arrange, and print your card!

After printing, I colored and embellished my card front and mounted it onto some colored card stock. You could also use the pre-colored images from the Hero Arts Digital Kits for a quicker version.

If you have a ton of holiday cards to do, this a great way to still have a hand made card (that looks hand stamped also), and easily reproduce several copies.

Check out the video below

You can then use your pattern paper on a variety of projects. This months featured Digi and Challenge Prize is the Go Wild set so what better to use for this tutorial. Here’s what I created:

You’re So Lovely Art Journaling

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today to share my second completed Art Journaling layout. I used the Hero Arts You’re So Lovely flower stamps, Hero Arts Diamond stencil, Nuvo Aquamarine Mousse and a few different paints.

Here’s the page with the first paint.

.

I started with just a yellow paint dauber, added some semi-transparent Pickling Wash paint in blue and yellow, added some torn strips of paper, more paint, stenciled on the page, added the quote and some flowers that I stamped and trimmed out, and some more paint splotches. The final touches were black and white pen and some Mod Podge.

This is the final project. But I took pics of the process and then corralled my teen son into helping me edit them into a quick video. Well, he actually volunteered after he saw my first attempt…I’m trying not to be offended by that, since it looks so good now 🙂

While I may not be an expert at this yet, it is sooo fun to make art journaling pages and I highly recommend you jumping into the field if you’re considering it. It’s just so fun to play with the supplies and design of it.

I decided that I was going to take my favorite lyrics from the musical, Hamilton, and journal them. This is my first page of that project. It’s Aaron Burr talking to Angelica Schuyler and I was able to put the song to the process so that was awesome.

The video steps go pretty quickly, but you’re welcome to pause if you need to for a closer look and use the audio if you want to hear the song! Click here to watch the video.

Happy Wednesday!

chark!
