Oh What Fun Catalog Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome! Today I am happy to be part of the Hero Arts...

Hero is celebrating the release of the new Oh What Fun Catalog that includes many new products that I am sure you would like to have for the upcoming Holiday season. Please be sure to visit the Hero Arts shop so you can see them and start making your wish list!

So, I created a card using a few products included in the catalog. This time, I used my Misti to stamp the Hand Drawn Snowflakes Bold Prints over white cardstock. I started by inking the central area of the stamp with Soft Sky shadow ink, then I added Dusty Blue and Cornflower Shadow Inks towards the edges, to obtain an ombré effect. I repeated this until I got the stamped results I was looking for.

Next, I used the Joy Stamp & Cut set to stamp the large word with Light to Red Royal Ombré ink and the complementary words with Intense Black Ink.

I adhered the panel over a blue folded card, I added Journey Glaze over the word Joy, and I embellished the card with Silver Twine and some clear dots.

My second project were a couple of simple tags, that you see below:

I die cut the tags using the Tag Infinity Dies from light blue cardstock then, I die cut the Snowy Drifts Fancy Dies from white cardstock. I adhered those pieces to the lower part of the tags, and I stamped a sentiments “To: and From:” from the Christmas Messages stamp set with Intense Black Ink. I also stamped a bow from the Christmas Trimmings Stamp & Cut set using Pale Tomato shadow Ink and Strawberry Bold Ink. Of course, at the end I added some tiny gemstones, Sparkle Silk and red bakers twine.

  13. I love your card. Snowflakes are my favorite! Your use of the light to darker blue is great and really helps the greeting stand out.

  16. These are lovely. Your stamping on the first card is very pretty. I like the more subtle color in the center work the darker on the edges. The pop of red looks great against the blue. Your tags look wonderful. I like those dies.
