Hero Arts: March My Monthly Hero Countdown to Creativity

 Hi everyone!


Happy Friday! Today we are starting with the March My Monthly Hero Sneak peeks! And it's another amazing kit! It's no secret that I love all of them.

I love all the images in this kit and this months theme is Reading/Books/Literacy. And it's awesome collection.

The kit goes live on Monday, March 8th at 10am PST/1pm EST.
To make my card I started by cutting a mask using the rounded rectangles infinity dies and the image of the boy reading. I applied the outside mask from the rectangle and then the image one and ink blended the "opening" using the reactive ombre ink that comes in the kit. I used 3 of the colors. Once I was happy, splashed some water and let it dry. Next I removed the masks and stamped the image using Intens-ified black ink in the space that was masked. I colored him using my Copic markers. Once done I stamped the little background stamp using Embossing and Watermark ink, then I shifted the panel in my MISTI for a little smidge and stamped it again using Unicorn Craft ink. To finish it off I stamped the sentiment in black and adhered to a Top Folding black note card I made from Pitch black cardstock

Spellbinders: March Small Die of the Month

Hi everyone!
I am back with another card for you. This time I am sharing a card I made using the new March Spellbinders Small Kit of the Month.  I also used the little bunny from the March Spellbinders Card kit of the month. 

To make the card I die cut the corner pieces (I didn't use the connecting parts to extend the frame to fit A2 card, but instead I made square card) from Peridot card stock. I die cut 8 and layered 2 for each corner. Next die cut the flowers and adhered to the corner pieces. Next using a small blending brush I ink blended some Reactive Green Apple on the sides. Added white Nuvo drops to the centers and set aside to dry.
In meantime I cut 4"x4" piece of white card stock and ink blended Broken China ink around the sides. Adhere the corner pieces. Die cut the Spring sentiment 3 times from black card stock and layer them together. Let it dry. 
Stamp Bunny and die cut flower and leaf. Color the bunny using Copic markers and adhere the flower and leaf. Adhere to the panel. Adhere the sentiment, then add a little strip saying "happy". I used pre-printed sentiment strip and just cut out the happy from it. 
To finish it, use craft foam to adhere the panel to a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" white note card! Add shimmer pen to  "Spring". 

 

Sending Hugs

 Hi everyone!

I am back with another card. This card focuses on Copic coloring. Since I still can't craft much due to recent surgery I decided to spend the weekend coloring and registered for a Copic coloring class over at My Creative Scoop! With some Xpress-it paper, handful of copic, sentiment strip , koala digital stamps and few hours of my time below are the results. 

This is my first class I took from Mindy and it's worth every penny (I think it's $16 or $18)

I die cut the boots from watercolor paper and colored them. Once dry I added dots using white gel pen. 
After the boots were done I die cut the Trellis from Sand and Pink card stock and adhered to white panel. Adhered the boots using foam tape. 
Next I die cut the Hello sentiment 3 times from black card stock and adhered them together for more dimension. Added some clear dots to finish off the card and adhered to white note card.

Picket Fence Studios: Seriously ...



Hi everyone!

I am over on the Picket Fence Studios blog today with this fun and bright card. If you know me, you know that I use the word "seriously" quite often. ;) So I thought it was perfect to use the new Seriously word die to make a card.

Paired with a sentiment from the new Ways to Express Yourself set it was match made in heaven. And I think everyone could relate to some level with the phrase "I'm about to lose my mind" especially with the last 12 months we have had.

To make the card I die cut the sentiment from black card stock and the backing from white. Then stamped the sentiment on black card stock and embossed in white. Trimmed to size.



Next, I cut strips from Navy, Light Blue, Green and Orange card stock and adhered to white piece of card stock measuring 4" x 5 1/4". Adhered the die cut sentiment and then the sentiment strip. To finish the card I adhered the panel using craft foam to a top folding note card!
