I created this card the same day I created the last card I posted (below this post). They are very similar, same concept, same ink colors, but this time I used Snow and Mocha layering papers, as well as some pretty sequins :)

Thanks for stopping by   :) Have a wonderful crafty week!

Happy Friday, everyone!

Just a quick post to share another Hero Arts card that I created using two beautiful sets: Scattering Leaves and Joyful Thanksgiving….

101214web_thanksgiving2

This time I chose traditional colors to create a simple card. Scattering Leaves  is such a great set, perfect to create Autumn cards. I stamped the different leaf images using different colors of ink: Just Rust, Forever Green, Pumpkin Pie, and Ruby.  I like that these colors perfectly coordinate with each other. To make the sentiment stand out, I simply gold embossed it and at the end, I added gemstones and a gold metallic cord. Simple yet fun.

Thanks for stopping by   :) Have a wonderful crafty  weekend!

He there! Today I am sharing a card that I created using a pretty Jane’s Doodles Set: Read All About It! 131014web_Readallabout When I started making this card, I wasn’t sure what elements I was going to include. I started by stamping the girl image, and then I colored it. I also added a piece of patterned paper as the cover of her book :) I included a tag as a frame for her (Long and Cute Tags by HA) and then, I created some loops of metallic thread.  I stamped the sentiment on a card stock strip, and I placed it right behind her; that way she doesn’t look like she is levitating…lol. I adhered the tag to a stitched black panel, and mounted it to a card base. Finally, I added some enamel dots and gems. Well, that’ all from me today, I’ll be back soon to share another card.

Thanks for stopping by   :) Have a wonderful crafty rest of the week!

Hi, friends!

Just a quick post for today to share a card that I made using a Hero Arts set that I love: Peace Poinsettias. The design of this card is quite simple, so I am linking it to the current Virginia’s View Challenge #8 {Clean and Simple).

100714web_Seasonsgreetings

To create this card, I stamped the sentiment and the three leaves using Versamark onto HA Tide Layering paper. Next, I heat-embossed the images with gold embossing powder .  I did the same with the poinsettia image onto HA Punch layering Paper. After that, I die-cut it using the matching die shape. I adhered the panel to a card base (HA Punch layering Paperand then, the flower image using foam tape. I embellished it with a cluster of sequins. Easy peasy.

Today I am also sharing the color combo, so if you feel inspired, please feel free to grab it! I have to point out that I labeled the colors using the Hero Arts layering paper names…

HeroArts_HolidayHop_500

Hello everyone, and welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts Handmade for Christmas Blog Hop featuring products from the new 2014 Holiday Catalog! If you have come from Jennifer McGuire’s blog… you are in the right direction! If you are just joining the hop and you would like to start from the beginning, please head over to the Hero Arts Blog.

Today I am sharing a card featuring a pretty clear stamps set and matching die cut called Christmas Tree. I made a card base using Snow layering paper. Next, I created the three tone background by layering  Azure, Cerulean and Powder layering papers. To create the curve effect, you can either use a circle cutter or any curve die-cut.  Then, I heat-embossed the sentiment using gold embossing powder. After that, I heat-embossed the tree image using white embossing powder onto Pine layering paper. Then I die-cut the the tree shape, and added it to the card front using foam tape. Finally, I embellished the card with a Star shaped gem, multicolor gems, and tie a gold cord around card front… Easy and fun to make!

Hey there!

Just popping in really quick to share a card featuring one of the newest stamp sets by Jane’s Doodles: Wise Owl

092214web_Youareamazing

I used two of the feather images to create the background, and an oval+sentiment as the base for the pretty owl. I simply gold heat-embossed the owl, and this time I colored the image using Distress markers. Let me tell you that the first time I tried these markers, I wasn’t very impressed with the results. But I decided to give them a second try. So I  used them as if they were watercolor paints (On an acrylic block+water+brush) and I just loved the results. The colors are so pretty! I think that soon I will be buying more Distress markers :) Have you already tried them?

Well, that’s all from me for today, I will be back soon to share another project.

Thanks for stopping by  :) Have a wonderful crafty week!

Hey there!

I hope you are all having a great week. For me… so far so good. I have been crafty almost every night… yay!  So today I am sharing a card that I made using a cute Hero Arts bundle: Frosty Wishes and its coordinating die-cuts…

091714web_frostywishes

I don’t know if I have said it before, but the Hero Arts papers are wonderful for stamping. I love that one of the sides is white, which makes it perfect to write your personal message on it :)

Anyway, for this card I used  two colors of layering paper:  Azure as the card base, and Snow for Mr. Frosty and the snow pile. Let me tell you that I had a lot of fun stamping and die-cutting all the pieces, putting them together, and of course adding the details: Glossy Accents and a pair of wiggle eyes. The sentiment is also included in the same set and it was simply heat embossed using white embossing powder.

I created the falling snow on the background by softly tapping with a white Dauber directly on the card base.  I want to point out that the size of the tip of these new daubers is just perfect to create the snow effect!. To finish this card, at the very end I added some clear gemstones.

Well, that’s all from me for today, I will be back soon to share another project.

Thanks for stopping by  :) Have a wonderful crafty rest of the week!
