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!

Hi there!
I am back today to share a card that I created using the guidelines of the current Tic Tac Toe Challenge by Hero Arts. The directions are easy of course there are prizes for the winners:)

thumbnail thumbnail-1To create my card, I combined heat embossing (big flowers)+ die cutting (main sentiment)+ favorite color (mint)…

061615web_congrats

I used one of the new color layering sets by Hero Arts called Happy Day Flowers.   First, the big flowers were stamped with Soft Cantaloupe  shadow ink, and then I stamped over them again with Versamark, and heat-wboss with clear embossing powder. I know, is hard to see… but I promise it is there. The sentiment that I used is included in Congrats Stamp & Cut set. I love this set… you can combine the Congrats word with other different words like graduation, marriage, etc.  Very versatile set! I also used a great cling background stamp called Forest Floor Bold Prints.

These are the ink colors that I used : Soft Cantaloupe (big and tiny flowers), Mint Julep (leaves and background), Green Hills (leaves details), Lemon Yellow (flower centers and tiny flowers), Cup O’Joe (Sentiment) and Soft brown (secondary text). Here is the color combo…

Hi there!

I am back today to share a pretty card that I made using some Hero Arts products (you will find the supply list at the end of this post.)

060215web_thanks

I am not sure how to call the technique I used to create this card … Maybe “double sponge coloring?”:) Anyway, I took some pictures with my phone to show exactly what I did:)

mgtut1First, I taped down the stencil (you can use painter’s tape) and then, I dabbed  on the white pigment ink all over using a jumbo sponge dauber to create the first layer.
mgtut2

It is important to let the firs layer dry, but if you don’t like to wait (like me), be sure to dab the second ink color over an acrylic block.  That way you won’t contaminate the ink pad with the white pigment ink (Pigment inks don’t dry quickly.)   I created the second layer by applying more color over the edges and less color on the center to achieve an ombré effect😉 Then, I just let it dry a little bit, and I carefully removed the stencil.

At the end I gold-embossed a simple sentiment and I added a daisy accent w/gem. Here is the supply list for you:

Hi there!

Today I am sharing an 8″x8″ scrapbook page that I created using some products from the new Lia Griffith Collection by Hero Arts…060115web_gowhere

The background of this page was made with Floral Bold Prints cling stamp and Cornflower Mid-Tone Ink. This stamp measures 6″x 6″ and one of the things I love the most about it, is that you can make a continued background image. This allows you to create 12″ x 12″ backgrounds perfect for scrapbooking.

As the page title, I used one of the sentiments included in Discover 6” x 4 “ clear stamp set, and I also used the mail stamp image over the top of the tower. I have to point out, that I am not a big fan of stamping directly on the pictures I use, so I always add an acetate rectangle over the picture, then I stamped the image. The best ink to use for this is White StazOn.

The floral details are also from the Lia Collection, and they are called Daisy Cutting Set.  I matched the colors by inking paper directly with CornFlower and Soft Sky inks.  At the end I added the date using Kelly’s Planners Clips (another of my favorites Stamp & Cut sets by HA) and some clear gemstones here and there.

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

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

Hi! I am back today to share a card I created a few weeks ago. This card features one of my favorites sets from the Hero Arts 2015 Summer Catalog: Color Layering Butterflies…. 041415web_tosayhi I stamped the base layer using Ombre Pool to Navy Ink. For the second layer I used Navy Mid Tone ink, and the third layer was stamped with Unicorn Pigment White. I love the effect of the white over the other colors:). At the end, I stamped the butterfly body and sentiment with Black Dye Ink. A few sequins were the only embellishments I used for this pretty card:)

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

Well, I have a card to share today. This card features one of the sets  from the new Lia Griffith Collection by Hero Arts, and it is called Discover

052515web_gowhere

I also used three different colors of Ink Dubers to create the round background: Cornflower, Tide Pool and Green HIlls. I stamped the tower and sentiment images using  the Ombre Pool to Navy Ink. At the end, I applied glossy Accents over the stamped images and embellished the card with some sequins.

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