Hey there…

Just sharing a simple 3.75″ x 2.75″  Thank You card…

072815WEB_thankyouI love creating tiny cards. They are really easy and quick to make, and I always like to have a few of them ready, just in case I need one.  For this card I used, Soft Vanilla, Soft LeafSoft Cantaloupe, Field Greens Mid-Tone and Cup O’Joe Mid-Tone Shadow Inks.  The pretty flowers and sentiment belong to a layering set called Happy Day Flowers.  I also stamped a tiny leaf that is included in Let Love Grow.  Have you tried the new Layering Sets by Hero Arts?

Hi!

Here is a card that I made using a c woodblock set called: Cute Animal Trio Artistic Impression along with its matching frame cuts

070615web_welcome2

I stamped the cute images over white cardstock using Color Brights and Color Lights by Lia. These little ink cubes are very juicy, and I love how crisp the images look when using these inks. After that, I die-cut the images, and I used the frame-cuts again over Poppy layering paper. Then I inserted the stamped images in the yellow panel , and  I secured them with regular tape from behind. After that, I stamped a sentiment included in a clear set called Little One using Cup O’Joe Mid-Tone Shadow ink. It is hard to see, but  I stamped again with Versamark over the sentiment, and then heat-emboss with Clear Embossing Powder. At the end I just stamped a little pink heart and adhered the panel to a Kraft card base.

Well, that’s all from me right now, I will be back soon to share another card!

Hey there! I have a little tutorial today showing how to create Party Straw tags using a couple stamps by Hero Arts, and the Envelope Notcher by We R memory Keepers….

DSC_1601

The stamping part was very easy. I stamped a cute woodblock stamp called Baby Elephant over a white 1.75″ scalloped circle. I used ink and card stock colors that match the colors of the straws. I also stamped a sentiment that is included in a cute clear set called Little Ones.

The fun part of this project is making the back of the tags. The back is the part that is going to keep the straw in place. So I took some pictures of the process. Not difficult at all, but is more easy to explain if you can see :)

1) I started by making the notches on a piece of white card stock rectangle measuring 2.5″ on its short side (the long side can be 3″ or more) . The Envelope Notcher has a magnetic system, which allows you to create perfectly aligned notches. It has two parts (base and notcher)that can easily be set apart or set together.

2) Align the upper left corner of the cardstcok with the silver rectangle.

3) Place the notcher on top of the card stock… The magnets will help to do this part ;)

4) Press hard the button ,  and remove the notcher.

5) Flip the paper over and align again the upper left corner of the cardstcok with the silver rectangle.

6) Place the notcher, press button and remove it.

7 & 8) Using a 2″ circle punch, make the notched rectangle into a circle.  The long side of the rectangle gives you enough space to hold the card stock in place when you are centering the circle.

Once you have the back of your tag, you can layer and glue the rest as follows…

Once you the tags are all done, you can now slide the straw in the back of the tag…

This is a very easy idea that you can use for any themed party :)

You can try other sizes, images, or colors :) The tags below are smaller and I used stamp images  from a pretty set called Kelly’s Oh Baby :)

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

Hi! 

Quick post today, just to share a card,  and announce a generous Hero Arts giveaway :)  The card that I am sharing was made using a cute set by Hero Arts: Playful Animals. This clear set includes six different critters, all of them adorable :) For my card I used the little dog :)

062615web_iwufyou

I created the watercolor background of this card using Neon Daubers (Pink and Blue)and a little bit of water. The little dog was black-embossed on white cardtsotk, and then I trimmed it with scissors. After that, I adhered the image to the card with foam tape. The sentiment (Animal Messages clear set) was simply stamped directly over the background panel with black ink. At the end, I added some heart shaped gems.

GIVEAWAY

Well, the Hero Arts giveaway that I have is a $25 shopping spree in the Hero Arts Online Store for ONE lucky winner! The only thing that you have to do is leave a comment. This time, I would love to hear about which Hero Arts products are your favorite. I am going to leave this contest open until next Thursday, July 2nd (midnight central time).

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

Hi!

I am back today to share a card that I made also using the new Hero Arts Color Layering set Graphic Flowers... but this time, I used the images to create a 4th of July card….

061815web_happyfourth

Since I saw this set, for some reason the flower shapes reminded me of fireworks ;) So, I thought about one of my favorite Holidays here in the United States: the 4th of July. I really like to go with my family to see the fireworks. We usually go to the a Navy base that is close by, and we really enjoy it. Anyway, I created a fun card, using the flowers as the fireworks in action (according to me) along with different colors. Then, I simply stamped a sentiment  and some tiny stars. At the end, I embellished the card with some little gemstones. Here is the color combo I chose…

Happy Friday, everyone!

I am back just to share a Happy Father’s Day card that I created using a mix of different old and new stamps by Hero Arts.

061815web_happyfathers

The main image of this card is a woodblock stamp called Vintage Car and I stamped it with Sand to Chocolate Ombre Ink Pad. If you haven’t tried these new ink pads I highly recommend you to try them, the results are fabulous! Now you can even find them at Hobby Lobby!

The sentiment is included in one of my favorite sets which is called Celebrate Everyday . I love that this set includes different sentiments for different occasions.

The little stars belong to Thanks Stamp & Cut and I stamped them using the colors included in the Sand to Chocolate Ombre Ink Pad, along with Ruby Ink Pad.

The background image belongs to the new Lia Griffith Collection and its name is Irregular Arrow Bold prints. I stamped it with Wet Cement Shadow Ink over  Earth Layering Paper (Mocha color). I know the background image are arrows, but they kind of look like tire tracks too, don’t you think? :)  

I matted the white main block, using a piece of Blush Layering Paper (Grenadine color). At the end, no bling was required to finish this masculine card.

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

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great crafty weekend!
