Hero Arts August My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hero Arts August My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello friends!! The new Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit and release is now available!! This release is truly a standout! I love every single thing! And once again I’m blow away by how much is in this month’s kit!

Kit Contents:

  • 4″ x 6″ Clear Stamp Set
  • Coordinating Fancy Dies
  • 5.4″ Square Cling Stamp
  • 5.25″ x 6.5″ Stencil
  • 3 Liquid Watercolors (Pink, Dandelion, Indigo)
  • 6 5.5″ x 8.5″ Sheets Watercolor Paper

Kit Value: $70

Kit Cost: $34.99

This kit screams rainbow colors to me so I went all in on this palette! My first rainbow card features the cling stamp, coordinating fancy dies, and the clear stamp set from the kit.

To create this card I first stamped the cling stamp in Embossing & Watermark Ink onto a piece of an A2 panel of bristol. I then heat embossed the image in black embossing powder. Next I colored several Tombow Dual Brush Pens over the image. I then spritzed the panel with water and then used a Rocket Air Blaster to blow the ink to create radiating drips. Once the panel had dried I then adhered it to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base.

Next I die cut a pair of arms out of a sheet of neutral cardstock from the Colors of Earth paper pack. To add length to the arm on the right I only partially die cut the arm, stopping just past the wrist. Then I hand cut the rest of the length of the arm. Next I adhered the arms to the card front with foam adhesive and cut off any over hang.

I then die cut “LOVE” out of Pitch Black cardstock and adhered it to the card front. Lastly, I finished the card by stamping and white embossing a sentiment from the clear stamp set onto black cardstock, fussy cutting it out and then adhered it to the card front.

My next card features some of the add-on products from this release. I used the Rainbow Infinity Dies for the images and the sentiment is from Color Me Words Stamp Set.

To create this card I first die cut arches for my rainbow with the Rainbow Infinity Dies out of Bristol paper. I then colored the arches with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens, spritzed with water and used the Rocker Air Blaster to create drips. Next, I die cut clouds out of Dove White cardstock and then adhered them and the rainbow to the front of a black A2 top-folding card base with foam adhesive.

Next, I stamped and black heat embossed a sentiment from the Color Me Words stamp set onto dove white cardstock. I then colored the letters in “color” with the same Tombow Dual Brush Pens and then die cut with a circle die.

Next, I stamped and black heat embossed a sub-sentiment from the set on dove white card stock. I then fussy cut the sentiment out and then finished the card by adhering both my sentiments to my card front.

GIVEAWAY:

Hero Arts is giving away one $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, August 8th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

Tonic Studios Patterns and Prints Blog Hop

Tonic Studios Patterns and Prints Blog Hop

Hello friends!! I’m so so SO excited to be joining an epic blog hop for Tonic Studios new Patterns and Prints release!! The mega-talented Maria Willis designed an incredible set of stamps and dies specifically designed for mixed media creations!

Now I don’t really think of myself as a mixed media type of cardmaker even though I am a bit experimental and love abstract patterns and backgrounds, so I was a bit nervous when Maria asked me to join the hop. But once I saw how gorgeous and innovative the stamps and dies were I couldn’t wait to play!! In fact I have three cards to share today!!

To create this first card I started by ink blending an A2 panel of Bristol paper with several Distress Oxides (Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple, Fossilized Amber, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, & Seedless Preserves). After I ink blended I then ink smooshed with the same colors one by one over the panel being sure to dry the panel between each color.

I then stamped the background with the grid stamp several times in the same distress oxide colors and then spritz the stamp with water and stamp it over the panel as well. Next, I dried the panel completely and then stamped and white heat embossed some of the water ring stamps over the panel. I then finished the background by splattering black Gansai Tambi watercolor over the panel.

I then die cut “HELLO” out of black cardstock and trimmed it down to a stripe. Next, I die cut the “friend” detail and shadow layers out of black and white cardstock and adhered the two together. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the panel to an A2 top-folding white card base and then adhered my sentiments with foam adhesive.

For my second card, I first ink smooshed several Distress Oxides (Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple, Fossilized Amber, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, & Seedless Preserves) one by one onto an A2 panel of Bristol paper, drying between each color so the colors wouldn’t mix too much. I then spritzed the book page stamp and then stamped it over the panel. When the panel had dried I then stamped the small x’s stamp over the card front in the same Distress Oxide colors and adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding white card base.

Next I die cut the hexagon die out of white cardstock several times, lining up the die each time with the previous cut just but in a different spot to create a large continuous section of the hexagon pattern. I then trimmed the hexagon pattern away from the rest of the cardstock and then adhered sections to the card front.

Next I created my sentiment by die cutting the “YOU’RE” and the “T” out of black cardstock and then grabbed the “H” and “E” from the “HELLO” I die cut out from the first card. I then die cut the detail and shadow layers for the “best” out of white and black cardstock and then adhered the two together. Lastly I finished the card by adhering the sentiment to the card front with foam adhesive and the splattered black paint over the card front.

For my last card, I tried something a bit different. I first ink smooshed an A2 panel of Bristol paper with Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry, and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxides. After I had throughly dried the panel with my heat tool I then stamped several stamps from the set over the panel and then heat embossed in clear embossing powder, trapping the ink underneath. I then ink smooshed another layer over the panel with several more Distress Oxides (Blueprint Sketch, Seedless Preserves, Candied Apple, Mermaid Lagoon, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, and Fossilized Amber. I then trimmed down the panel and adhered it to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base.

Next, I die cut the grid out of heavy weight white cardstock and then heat embossed the die cut in gold embossing powder. I then cut the grid in half and adhered the two sections to the card front. Next, I created my sentiment by first die cutting “YOU’RE” out of white cardstock, trimming it down to a strip and then gold embossed the tips.

I then die cut the detail and shadow layers of the “amazing” die out of white and vellum cardstock and adhered the layers together. Next I die cut 3 more detail layer “amazing’s” out of white cardstock, adhered them together, and then adhered them behind the vellum and cardstock one. Lastly I finished the card by adhered the “YOU’RE” to the card front with foam adhesive and the “amazing” with liquid glue.

I then stamped the heart in Embossing & Watermark Ink and then heat embossed it in Gold Embossing Powder. After I embossed it in gold I then stamped the heart again using my MISTI and then heat embossed it in Glitter Gold Embossing Powder. Next, I adhered the hands to the card front with foam adhesive.

Pinkfresh Studio’s July Release

Pinkfresh Studio’s July Release

Hello friends!! It feels like forever since I made a post but I’m back today with a new release from Pinkfresh Studios!! This release has it all, stamps, dies, hot foil plates and stencils!! And in true Pinkfresh fashion these products are not only gorgeous but also innovated as well!!

My first card features the Slimline Stars Builder Stencils. This stencil set is a layering set that creates the coolest radiating stars and of course I couldn’t resist rainbowifing them!!

For this card I created the background first over a slimline panel (3 5/8″ x 8 5/8″) of light pink cardstock. I started with the first stencil from the Slimline Stars Builder Stencil set and ink blended lightly with Raspberry Bliss, Clementine, Sweet Mustard, Emerald City, Blue Jay, Stargazer and Candied Violet. Next I ink blended over the second stencil with the same ink colors but more heavy handedly to make the colors darker. For the last stencil in the set, I applied Transfer Paste and then allowed the panel to dry completely. After the panel had dried I then foiled over the stars with Iridescent Transfer Foil.

Next, I adhered the panel onto the front of a slimline card base (7 1/4″ x 8 5/8″; scored and fold at 3 5/8″). I then created a frame out of white cardstock using the Slim Stitched Rectangle Die Set and adhered it to my card front. I then die cut several stars using the Essentials Stars Shaker Die Set. I then adhered my stars to my card front with foam adhesive.

Next, I die cut a sentiment out of black and iridescent mirrored cardstock using the Lots of Love Die Set and adhered the layers together. I then stamped and silver heat embossed a sentiment from the new Best of Everything Stamp Set onto black cardstock and trimmed down to a strip. Lastly I finished the card by adhering my sentiments to the card front with foam adhesive.

My next card features the Slim Stars Builder Stencils again but also the Sweet Friend Stamps Set and matching die.

This card is actually sort of a two for one card because I used my already inky/dirty star stencils from the first card, spritzed them with water and then place them face down onto a slim panel of bristol paper. I started with spritzed stencil #2, after I transferred the residual ink from the stencil to the panel I then dried it and then placed spritzed stencil #1 on top. Once I had finished trying the panel I then took the third stencil, placed it over the panel and applied glitter paste and set panel aside to dry. When the panel had dried I then die cut the panel with the Slim Stitched Rectangle Die Set.

Next, I stamped two sets of flowers from the Sweet Friend Stamp Set in Detail Black Ink onto white cardstock. I then die cut the flowers out with the matching dies. I then temporarily placed flowers over my panel with low tack tape, trimmed off the excess and then adhered to the panel with foam adhesive.

Next, I stamped and white heat-embossed a sentiment from the Sweet Friend Stamp Set onto black cardstock and fussy cut it out. I then stamped a sub-sentiment with in detail black onto the panel and then adhered the fussy cut sentiment with foam adhesive. Lastly I finished the card by adhering the panel onto my card front.

Waffle Flower Crafts July Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello friends!! Waffle Flower Crafts’ July release is now available and you guys it’s incredible!! The theme for this release is Christmas in July and even though it’s over 100 degrees here in Arizona I had no problem getting into the holiday spirit creating my samples with this release!

From snowflakes to poinsettias to cute winter hamsters this release has so many fun and festive new products. Many of which I know I will reach for time and time again because of their versatility and great design!

My first two cards features some of my very favorites from this release, the Classic Snowflake Die, the Labelmaker Holiday Combo and the Snowflake Background Stencil.

To create this card first created a background using glitter paste and the Snowflake Background Stencil over an A2 panel of Bristol Vellum paper. When the glitter paste was dry I then watercolored the panel with a rainbow of Tombow Dual Brush Pens.

After the panel had dried completely I than adhered it to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. I then die cut the Classic Snowflake Die out of white glittery cardstock and craft foam. I then adhered the two together and then adhered them to my card front.

Next, I stamped a whole bunch of sentiments using the Labermaker Holiday Sentiments Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black and then die cut them with the matching die. Lastly I finished my card by adhering my sentiment to the card with foam adhesive and then adding some iridescent sequins.

My second with these same products is very similar and also very different at the same time.

To create this card I first created the foiled background using the Snowflake Background Stencil and Thermoweb’s Transfer Gel. When the gel had dried I then ran the panel through my laminator with a transfer sheet of Silver Shattered Glass foil. Next, I ink blended over the panel with several Distress Oxides (Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, and Salvaged Patina).

After I ink blended the panel I then adhered it to my card base and then die cut some silver glittery cardstock and craft foam to create my snowflake.

I then adhered my snowflake to my card front and then added a Labelmaker Holiday sentiment with foam adhesive. Lastly, I finished the card with some more iridescent sequins.

My next card the features the awesome Slimline Christmas Tree and Cozy Holiday Sentiments Stamp Set!

To create this card I first die cut a white slimline panel with the stitched frame and tree from the Slimline Christmas Tree Die Set. I the adhered a panel of mirrored gold cardstock to the front of an slimline card base.

Next, I adhered a rainbow of sequins to the card front over the mirrored cardstock. I then adhered my slimline panel to the card front with foam adhesive.

I then stamped and gold heat embossed a sentiment using the Cozy Christmas Sentiments Stamp Set onto mirrored gold cardstock. Lastly, I finished my card by adhering my sentiment with foam adhesive.

My next card features the gorgeous Poinsettia Panel Die and the Wonderful Christmas Combo!

To create this card I first dry embossed an A2 panel of white cardstock with the Poinsettia Panel Die. I then copic colored the poinsettias and then adhered the panel onto the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. I then die cut a white A2 panel and a panel of pattern paper from the Half-Half Dots Christmas Paper Pad.

I then adhered the two panels together and then adhered them to the card front. Next, I stamped and red heat embossed a sentiment from the Wonderful Christmas Combo onto a piece of patterned paper also from the Half-Half Dots Christmas Paper Pad.

I then die cut the sentiment out with the matching die and adhered it to my card front with foam adhesive. Lastly, I finished the card by copic coloring some of the negative white panel poinsettias, adding some of the green poinsettias for leaves, and adhering them to the card front.

My last card features the Holiday Stripes Panel Die, the Oversized Joy Combo and the Small Snowflake Dies.

To create this card I first I die cut an A2 panel of white cardstock with the Holiday Stripes Panel Die. I then adhered an A2 panel of acetate to the backside. Next, I flipped the panel over and colored the acetate with copic markers to make each stripe a different color.

I then adhered an A2 panel of gold glittery cardstock to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. Next, I adhered the Holiday Stripes/acetate panel to the card front. I then die cut several snowflakes out of glitter white cardstock using the Small Snowflake Dies and adhered them to my card front. I then die cut “Joy” using the Oversized Joy Combo out of glittery and white cardstock.

I then adhered the two together but slightly off-set and then set them aside. Next, I die cut a shadow layer for the “Joy” out of vellum and then adhered my stacked “Joy” on top.

Rainbow Love You Card

Rainbow Love You Card

Hello friends!! Today I’m joining the Love Wins Hop on Instagram celebrating Pride month and the LGBTQIA community! This hop has received so much support that it has become a five day hop and today is the last day. So many incredible projects have been shared and there are a ton of giveaways so be sure to head over to Instagram and check it out. Today’s hop starts with @mayhamcraftycards.

I rarely can resist the opportunity to incorporate rainbows into my card designs and today’s card is no exception.

To create this card I first ink blended the front of an A2 top-folding white card base with several Hero Arts Reactive Inks (Fruit Punch, Creamsicle, Lemon Drop, Key Lime Fizz, Pool Party, Blue Hawaii, and Berry Smoothie). After ink blending I splattered water over the card front to create water spots. Once the panel dried I then smooshed the Reactive Inks out onto a piece of acetate, added water, and then splattered the card front with the water-downed ink.

Next, I die cut a white A2 panel with the Geometric Sun Cover Plate and then adhered the panel to the front of my card front. I then die cut “love you” using the Love You Stamp & Cut XL set out of white cardstock. Next, I ink blended over the words with the same Reactive Inks and then splattered them with the water-downed ink.

I then adhered the words to the card front with foam adhesive. Lastly, I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Message Stripes Stamp & Cut XL set and adhered it to my card front.

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