To create this card I first stamped the bouquet image onto Delux Smooth White Cardstock In Cup O’ Joe Core Ink. I then copic colored the image but colored the top portion of the vase to look like a pumpkin. When I finished coloring the bouquet

I then trimmed the sentiment down to a strip and then finished the card by adhering the bouquet and sentiment to the card front with foam adhesive.

To create this card I first placed the Floral Flourish Stencil over the front of an A2 top-folding Sand card base. I then ink blended over the stencil with Unicorn Ink. Next, I repositioned the stencil over the panel and then ink blended with Dandelion, Papaya and Azalea inks.

Next, I die cut several leaves and flower out of white cardstock using the Foliage and Flowers Fancy Dies. I then adhered the die cuts to the card front with foam adhesive.

Next, I stamped some leaves in Field Greens and also colored them with copies. I then stamped the bouquet and leaves again using my MISTI to darken the outlines.

Chibitronics’ Craft with Light Kit Release

Chibitronics’ Craft with Light Kit Release

Hello friends!! I’m super excited to share with you a project that is a first for me!! Today I’m sharing my first EVER light-up card!!! Chibitronics is releasing a new light kit and they have generously invited me to join today’s instagram hop and create their awesome new Craft with Light Color Kit.

And yes you heard me correctly, until this hop I had never made a light-up card before. I’ve always been so impressed with the light up cards others had created but I was a bit too intimidated to tempt one of my own. And now with my first light-up card under my belt I’m mad at myself for taking so long to give it a try!

To create this card I first trimmed down a piece of Hero Arts Kiwi cardstock to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and then set it aside. Next, I created my Christmas tree with the O Christmas Tree Color Layering Stencils over white cardstock. I ink blended over the first stencil with Pine. Then I positioned stencil two and ink blended with Pine and Forever Green. Next, I ink blended the trim with Dandelion and Spicy Mustard. Lastly, I finished the tree by copic coloring the ornaments in.

Next, I die cut the tree out with the matching die and then hole punched four 1/16″ holes into my tree and one into the center of my star. I then centered my tree over my green panel and traced the openings of my five holes with a pencil. I then created holes over those pencil marks with a needle because my hole punch wasn’t able to reach. Next, I centered the panel onto the front of an A2 top-folding white card base and traced the hole once more. I then sketched out where my lights, fabric tape and battery would go onto the front of my card base.

Next, I folded a 2″ x 1″ strip of copy paper in half and then adhered it to the card front where my battery was supposed to go. I then placed my fabric tape onto my card front and around and over my un-taped half of my copy paper. Next, I added my lights and then my battery. I then tested my arrangement by folding my copy paper over the battery and pressing.

When everything lit up and then adhered the battery in place and then added doubled up foam adhesive to my card front. Next, I removed the backing on the foam adhesive and then adhered my panel and tree to my card front. Lastly, I finished the card with a stamped and white heat-embossed sentiment from the Winter Scenics stamp set.

Be sure to head over to Chibitronics’ Instagram account to start today’s and to learn more about the GIVEAWAY!

I hope you enjoyed my card. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hero Arts Holiday 2022 Release Blog Hop

Hero Arts Holiday 2022 Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!! The Hero Arts Holiday release is now available!!

I have a bunch of cards to share so lets just dive in! My first card features a fall set, the Grateful Pumpkin Combo.

To create this card, I first stamped several images from the Grateful Pumpkin stamp set in INTENS-ified Black Ink. I then copic colored the images and then die cut them out with the matching dies.

Next, I trimmed down a sheet of Sand cardstock to a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and then adhered the panel onto the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. Next, I adhered all the die cuts to the card front with foam adhesive.

I then stamped and white heat-embossed a sentiment from the Grateful Pumpkin stamp set onto Pitch Black cardstock. I then trimmed the sentiment down to a strip. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the sentiment to the card front with foam adhesive.

My next card features the fun Stacked Happy Holidays Foil & Cut set.

To create this card I first trimmed down several scraps of colored cardstock (Pesto, Palm, Mist, Paradise, Coral, Cherry & Peony) to 1/4″ strips and each 4″ long. I then adhered the strips to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base making sure the strips were all aligned on the left side of the card.

Next, I hot foil some white cardstock in Polish Brass foil with the Stacked Happy Holidays Foil Plate. I then trimmed the sentiment down to a long vertical strip.

Lastly I finished the card by adhering the sentiment to the card front with foam adhesive.

My next card features the sweet Poinsettia Arrangement stamp set.

To create this card I first stamped a poinsettia from the Poinsettia Arrangement stamp set in INTENS-ified Black Ink onto the top of a 3″ x 4 1/4″ white panel. I then created two masks for the poinsettia out of full-adhesive post-it notes. I then placed one of the masks over the stamped poinsettia and then I stamped a second poinsettia. I then placed the second mask over the second poinsettia and then stamped several leaves.

Next, I repeated this process and stamped the same arrangement on the bottom half of the panel. I then copic colored all the images. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set onto the center of the panel.

I then adhered the panel to the front of an A2 top-folding card base made from Arctic cardstock with foam adhesive.

My last card features the Color Layering Wreath Stencils, the Season Words Fancy Die and the Hero Greeting Season’s Greetings Stamp Set.

To create this card I first ink blended over the first stencil with Moss Core Ink onto a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel of white cardstock. I then lined up stencil B and ink blended over it with Forever Green Core Ink. Next, I ink blended over stencil C with Crimson and Plum Core Inks and then finished the wreath by ink blending over stencil D with Pine.

Next, I die cut “season’s greetings” out of Coral cardstock with the Season Words Fancy Die. I then ink blended over the sentiment with Crimson ink. I then die cut the shadow layer out of vellum cardstock. Next, I adhered the red sentiment over the shadow layer. I then die cut two more “season’s greetings” out of scrap cardstock. I then adhered the sentiments together and then adhered them to the backside of the vellum to create a stacked sentiment.

Next, I stamped and white heat-embossed a sub-sentiment from the Hero Greetings Season’s Greetings stamp set onto black cardstock. I then trimmed the sentiment down to a strip. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the panel to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base and then adhered the sentiments over the wreath.

Hero Arts August 2022 My Monthly Hero Countdown

Hero Arts August 2022 My Monthly Hero Countdown

Hello friends and welcome to day two of the August My Monthly Hero Countdown. I absolutely adore this month’s kit, being a desert native I feel like this kit was made for me!

My card today features more of the additional images from the kit, namely the cute cacti.

To create this card I first ink blended the cacti on white cardstock using the stencils from the kit. I used several combos of ink to create a but of different cacti (Key Lime Fizz + Moss, Green Apple + Pine, Pool Party + Blue Raspberry, Thistle + Grape Slush + Taffy). After I ink blended all the cacti I then die cut them out with the matching dies.

Next, I ink blended a small panel with several inks (Grape Slush, Taffy, Creamsicle, and Pool Party) to create a sky. I the used the layering stencils to added details to the sky with a more heavy handed blending of Grape Slush and Taffy. Next, I die cut a small circle using the Infinity Circles Nesting Dies out of Canary cardstock. I then ink blended the circle with a little Creamsicle and then adhered it to the card front.

Next I ripped a panel of Sand cardstock to make it look like a mountain and then I adhered the cacti and the mountian to the card front with liquid and foam adhesive. Lastly, I finished the card by stamping and white heat-embossing a sentiment from the included stamp set onto black cardstock and then adhering it the card front.

I hope you enjoyed my card. Thank you so much for stopping by!
