Hero Arts and Pear Blossom Press Collaboration + Giveaways

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the Bold & Bright Hop with Hero Arts and Pear Blossom Press! You’re going to see some of the coolest light-up cards, all featuring your favorite stamps and dies from Hero Arts. Get ready for lots of inspiration, and be sure to comment as you hop along, for your chance to win a $50 store credit! (Full hop list and prizes details are on the bottom of this post)

For my card I used the Dragons and Unicorns stamp set along with the coordinating dies and of course EZ lights. You don't need electrical engineering degree to make light up card ( and don't get scared that I do have one ;)) The EZ lights from Pear Blossom Press make making light up cards breeze. They come pre-wired and ready to use, you just need to tape them on the back of your card! 

To make the card stamp your images on watercolor paper, color and cut them out. Cut a piece of white card stock 4" x 5 1/4" and ink blend Pool Party reactive ink. Splash with some water to create some dots and more texture on the background. 

Position where you would like your images to go and the sentiment. Stamp the sentiment. Next poke little holes behind the images that you would like to light up. Now you can add the lights. You can use any tape, I used blue so you can see it on the photos. secure the lights behind the little holes, or you can even push them through them. Tape the wires down. Secure the battery pack where you would like the card to be pressed to light up. I usually do it on the bottom right corner. Once it's all secured add foam tape. I added 2 layers to make space for the battery pack so it's not squished and pressed all the time. Once the tape is applied, remove the backing and adhere another piece of card stock on top to cover the wires and lights. Now you can adhere this assembly to a note card. Add some enamel dots and you are DONE!!! Scroll down to see more photos of the process!!! 

PRIZES: Every good hop has prizes, right? So Hero Arts, and Pear Blossom Press are each giving away a $50 store credit! Comment on this post by January 29, 2021 to be entered to win. Winners will be posted on the Pear Blossom Press Blog on February 6, 2021

Scrappy Tails: Have a Blessed Easter

Hi everyone!
Today I am sharing super fun and brigs card using the new set Timeless Tulips and the
coordinating dies. I decided to combine the image from this set with a sentiment from the Easter Lilies
To make the card start by stamping the image with tulips in a vase on watercolor paper using black ink. I use my stamping positioning tool especially when stamping on watercolor paper, so that way I can
stamp multiple times to get a nice coverage on the watercolor paper. Once stamped emboss using clear
embossing powder. Watercolor the image and add details with white gel pen.
Die cut it using the coordinating die and set aside.

For the background I decided to use black plaid dry embossed card stock. Cut your background down to
4” x 5 1/4”. Stamp the sentiment using embossing ink onto vellum and emboss it in white. Trim the strip to size. However make sure it’s longer than 4” that way you can wrap it around your panel and avoid adhesive showing on the front. Tape the vellum on the back of the panel. Adhere the image using foam tape. Make top folding note card from hot pink card stock and adhere the assembled panel using craft foam.

 Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you have an amazing day!

I made couple cards using the smaller two dies. I die cut the pieces from Arctic and Azalea card stock. To add some depth I ink blended some dark pink and pool party inks around the edges. 

For the sentiments I used Magenta Hot Foil and More Sentiments Hot Foil glimmer plates. I added some enamel dots and rhinestones to add some more details.

Spellbinders: Expressions of Love

Hi everyone!
Today I am sharing a fun card using the Spellbinders Expressions of Love collection. I was playing around on my desk and decided to foil on acetate and I was surprised by the greatness of the results. I used heat resistant acetate and the Scattered Hearts background to make the shaker window! 
For the backing of the shaker card I used Peony card stock and ink blended some Ultra Pink ink on the top to create ombre effect.
I used the Essentials Rectangles to create the frame for the shaker card. All the foil and sparkle makes is hard to photograph. 
For the car I used Sunday Sunset Drive die set along with Sunday drive (which is the set for the base of the car).
All the supplies are listed on the bottom of this post
