Hero Arts: May My Monthly Hero Countdown to Creativity

  Hi everyone!


Happy Friday! Today we are starting the May My Monthly Hero Sneak peeks! And it's an AH-mazing kit! It's no secret that I love all of them.

I love all the images in this kit! This month theme is ocean!!! All the images in the kit are amazing and the large one is perfect also for slim line cards! The kit also includes coordinating dies

The kit goes live on Monday, May 3rd at 10am PST/1pm EST.
To make the card I started with panel of white card stock and stamped the largest image using the Hero Arts Contour ink (an ink cube of this ink is included in the kit!!!). This ink is perfect for no line coloring. So, I used my Copics and Faber Castell Polychromos pencils to color the image. This took about few hours, because I am a slow colorist. Once done I trimmed the panel to 4" x 5 1/4", stamped sentiment using Intensi-fied Black ink and added few clear enamel dots and adhered to a Sand top folding note card using craft foam.

Spellbinders: Darling Hugs

Hi everyone!
Second post for today! This time I am sharing a clean and simple card using the new Delighful Darlings collection from Spellbinders. I used two of the sets from the collection: Darling Hugs (sentiment) and Darling Bouquet for the image.
To make the card I started by foiling the Essential Duo Lines Glimmer Rectangles on a piece of 3 3/4" x 5" card stock. Next I stamped the image and sentiment using black alcohol ink friendly ink pad and colored with copics. Once done, I adhered the panel to a piece of Beeswax card stock measuring 4" x 5 1/4" and then to a Turquoise Sea top folding note card.

Scrappy Tails: Have a Bee-utiful Day

 Hi everyone!

Happy Tuesday! Hope you are having a great start of the week.

Today I am sharing a super fun and bright card using the Oopsy Daisy set from Scrappy Tails and the coordinating dies from the March release.

The layout was inspired by a card I saw online, I am not sure of the maker or the card, but I am thankful for the inspiration.

To make the card start by stamping the daisy image three times and three of the bees on white card stock that is alcohol marker friendly using alcohol marker friendly black ink. (I will be using alcohol markers to color the images, but you can use any color medium of your choice. If you use watercolors stamp on your choice of watercolor paper and use waterproof ink)

Cut each image into a hexagon that is equal in size and color using alcohol-based markers. Color the bees and die cut them. Add shimmer pen on the wings. Set aside.

Stamp sentiment using Versamark ink onto Paradise colored card stock and emboss using white embossing powder. Cut it into a hexagon the same size as the images.

Now it’s time to start assembling the card. Cut a panel from yellow card stock measuring 4” x 5 ¼” ( I have pre-treated my panel using background piercing die for little bit more interest. You can use embossing folder, too, or nothing at all). Using foam tape arrange the hexagons. Adhere the bees. Add few white pearls for added interest.

Using craft foam adhere the panel to a top folding white note card.

Spellbinders: Where the Flowers Blooms so Does Hope

 Hi everyone!

I am back today with a slim line card using few new Spellbinders products for this month. 

I used the new Confetti Background hot foil glimmer plate which is made for slim line cards. To make the card I cut Graffiti card stock to 3 1/4" x 8 1/4" and foiled the confetti using matte gold foil. Next I foiled sentiment from Yana's blooming floral background glimmer plates and dies and die cut it. Set them a side. 

Next I die cut bunch of Mini Blooms and Springs from different color card stock (all the colors are listed on the bottom). Using foam tape I adhered the sentiment to the background, then arranged the flowers, leaves and sprigs and adhered. To finish off the card I adhered the panel to white slim line note card using craft foam.

The Greetery: Coffee and Friends

Hi everyone,

I am back with another post and Iam sharing a set of card using Cozy Cup Stamp set from The Greetery along with the coordinating dies and the Cozy Cup Coaster die.

To make the cards I started by die cutting bunch of the dies from white card stock, also a template of the die cuts to use in my MISTI to mass produce the images. Once I had everything die cut, I positioned my template from the negative die cuts and stamped the images. Usually when I do this technique I stamp bunch of images, way more than needed and save for later use. 

Once I had stamped them, I set them aside. Die cut coasters from Dove card stock and stamped sentiment in black. All I had left to do was to assemble my cards. I made four and saved the rest of the stamped images for later use.

Pink and Main: You Can Do Great Things

 Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing clean and simple card using the new set from Pink and Main called Pretty Peony. I love the large flower in the set.

To make the card stamp the image using waterproof ink on watercolor paper. Once the ink is dry watercolor it. I used re-inkers to color the image. Next trim the watercolor paper panel to 4" x 5 1/4".

Stamp sentiment on white card stock with black ink. Die cut using the coordinating sentiment strip die. Adhere using foam tape. Add some Essential Pearls and adhere to black top folding note card using craft foam.

Pink and Main: Thanks Sow Much

Hi everyone!

I am back today with another post and I am sharing a sneak peek of a super fun and cute set from Pink and Main that will be released on Tuesday, April 20th and it's called Pig Time! There are few images with little piggies in the set and for today's card I am using the little piggie holding a balloon.

I stamped him on alcohol friendly card stock and colored with Copic Markers (BG10, BG11, BG13, E11, R32, R30 and R01) next I trimmed the panel to 3 1/4" x 5 1/2" and stamped sentiment.


I created top folding note card and on the right side adhered strip measuring 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" from the Happy Patterned pad. Using craft foam I adhered the image panel. To finish off the card I added few glitter enamel dots from the In The Garden pack that will also be released on Tuesday.



Scrappy Tails Crafts: New Home Slimline

 Hi everyone!

Happy Friday! Today I am sharing a slim line card using couple products from the Scrappy Tails March release: Slimline Brick Backgrounddie and Home Furnishings set and coordinating dies.

To make the card start by stamping the images on watercolor paper using waterproof ink, color them and die cut using the coordinating dies. Set aside.

Die cut the Brick Background Slimline die from white card stock. Ink blend pale gray ink. Next cut a piece of white card stock measuring 3 ½” x 2 ¾” and ink blend medium gray ink. This will be to create the floor. Using pencil (I used warm gray colored pencil) draw lines to create the floorboards.

Create slimline card base from heavyweight white card stock. I used 7” x 8 ½” piece of cardstock and scored at 3 ½”. Adhere the slimline brick die cut, then the floor you created. Using foam tape adhere the images.

Stamp sentiment on black cardstock and emboss in white. Cut to size and adhere to the card using foam tape. This finishes your card.
