Hero Arts Color Week Blog Hop

Hello friends!! Today is a super exciting day over at Hero Arts, especially for all us color lovers because Hero Arts is adding new inks, inkers and cardstocks to their line!!

Announcing our new Core Ink line! Adding color to your projects could not be easier. This essential collection is the ideal ink for your everyday stamping and cardmaking. It includes fresh new colors and popular existing formulas to create a tightly designed color system. Each Core Ink pad features a new look with a palette on the underside of the lid. By popular demand, we are excited to now offer matching Inkers for every color! The Hero Hues line is rounded out with cardstock, specifically selected to work well with the Core Ink spectrum.

  • 57 Core Ink pads and Inkers in the Core Ink line, with 6 brand new Hero ink colors
  • 12 brand new to Hero cardstock colors.
  • Bundles are available for all 57 Core Inks – an ink pad + inker
  • Bundle is available for purchasing all 6 new Core Ink pads

The card I’m sharing today features all the new cardstock colors except for one (Antique Blossom). Hero Arts colored cardstocks have always been a favorite of mine and I’m so excited to have more colors to play with.

To create this card I first die cut the new cardstocks (Charcoal, Granite, Eggplant, Ultra Pink, Passion Flower, Iris, Peacock, Shamrock, Pine, Cup O’ Joe & Woodland) with the Hexagon Infinity Dies to create a bunch of colored nesting hexagon frames. Next, I die cut a scrap of white cardstock with the largest die from the Hexagon Infinity Dies set and then adhered and inlaid the frames to the panel.

I then dry embossed an A2 panel of white cardstock with all the Hexagon Infinity Dies at once. Next, I adhered the inlaid hexagon panel over the dry embossed panel and then trimmed off the excess. I then adhere the panel to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base.

Next, I stamped and white heat-embossed a sentiment from the Sending Love Stamp Set onto Pitch Black cardstock. I then trimmed the sentiment down to a strip and then finished the card by adhering the sentiment to the card front with foam adhesive.

GIVEAWAY:

Hero Arts will be giving away one set of the six NEW colors of ink – Core Ink Pads and Inkers – to one lucky commenter.

Pretty Pink Posh June Release Blog Hop – Day 1

Pretty Pink Posh June Release Blog Hop – Day 1

Hello all!! Today I’m joining Pretty Pink Posh in celebrating their June Release with a fun blog hop!! This release is simply the sweetest and I had so much fun creating my card!!

Every stamp set in this release is seriously so cute and perfect for creating kids cards!! I specifically love those adorable construction trucks and couldn’t wait to create a card with them for my nephew!

To create this card I first stamped several images from the Construction Trucks Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto white cardstock. I then copic colored the images and then die cut them out with the matching dies.

Next, I created a background by first ink blending the roads (stencil B) using the Layered Roads Stencils in Black Soot Distress Oxide onto the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. When I finished ink blending the roads I then ink blended the dirt with stencil A in Tea Dye Distress Oxide. Next, with the stencil still in place I smooshed some Tea Dye ink down onto a scrap of acetate, added water and then splattered the water down ink over the card front. When the card front was dry I then added the dotted lane lines with stencil C and white paste.

Next, I adhered all my images to the card front with foam adhesive. Lastly I finished the card by stamping a sentiment from the Construction Trucks Stamp Set in black ink.

Hero Arts June My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY

Hero Arts June My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY

Hello all!! It’s release day and oh boy this month’s Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit is simply fintastic.😉 Head under the sea with the June My Monthly Hero release. A beautiful mermaid greets you, with hair flowing and tail shimmering. She’s accompanied by a colorful fish and jelly, with seagrass and coral surrounding her. Pearls are an accent to this kit, with an image, messages, and embellishments uniting the theme. The kit is rounded out with a Reactive Ink palette and brush, perfect for watercoloring the images or creating gorgeous underwater backgrounds.

Kit Contents:

  • 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set
  • 8 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • Mermaid Reactive Palette Ink Pad
  • Self-adhesive Pearl Gems
  • Water Flow Brush

Kit Value: $72.00 Kit Cost: $34.99

The first card I’m sharing features this incredible kit! Of course I couldn’t resist coloring that stunning mermaid and she quickly became the focal image of my card.

To create this card I first stamped the images in INTENS-ified Black Ink onto white cardstock. I then copic colored all my images and then die cut them out with the matching dies.

I then ink blended an A2 top-folding card base made from Paradise cardstock with Blue Raspberry, Blue Hawaii and Purple Galaxy. Next, I stamped the card front with a sentiment from the stamp set in INTENS-ified Black Ink.

I then adhered the images to the card front with foam adhesive. Lastly I finished the card by adding one of the adhesive pearls to the shellfish.

My next card features the beautiful Looking Glass Pearl Die Set.

To create this card I die cut three A2 panels of white cardstock with the three Looking Glass Pearl dies. I then ink blended the images with several Reactive Inks (Fruit Punch, Green Apple, Key Lime Fizz, Taffy, Creamsicle, Grape Slush) and Pumpkin Pie Ink. I used simple masks that I created with post-it notes and the dies to ink blend the different plants, sections of the shell and the ground different colors.

Next, I ink blended the background onto the card front of an A2 top-folding white card base with Splash, Blue Hawaii and Pumpkin Pie ink. I then adhered the three panels to the card front with foam adhesive. Next, I die cut a some holographic paper with the shell/pearl layer of the the Looking Glass Pearl Die set. Then I cut out the pearl image away from the rest of the shell, pressed the backside of the pearl with the rounded bottom of a paint brush to make the pearl appear convexed and then adhered it to the card front.

Lastly I finished the card with a stamp and white heat-embossed sentiment from the June My Monthly Hero Kit.

Waffle Flower Crafts June Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Waffle Flower Crafts June Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello all!! Welcome to the Waffle Flower June Release Blog Hop! I’m happy to be hopping with the folks from Waffle Flower to show you all the fun new stuff awaiting you on the Waffle Flower website! Be sure to check out each stop in today’s blog hop for fun, inspiration, and chances to win some of these new release goodies! 

My card features the stunning new Layered Orchid Die Set. The dies add a ton of texture and detail to the flowers but I decided to take it one step further and used copic markers to add shading and patterns to make my flowers even more realistic.

To create this card I die cut the petals out of white, yellow and orange cardstock. I then colored over the yellow and orange petals with a copic marker only slightly darker than the paper to create a gradation over the petals. I then colored the large white petals with a light blue copic to add some depth. Next, I added small dots with a red over all the white petals. I then adhered the yellow and orange petals together and the white petals layers together.

Next, I die cut the flower centers out of dark pink and lime green cardstock. I also colored these layers with a tone-on-tone copic to add depth. I then layers the centers together and then adhered them to the flowers with foam adhesive. With my flowers finished I moved onto the leaves and stems. I first die the leaves out of green cardstock and then copic colored them to add shading. Next the stems out of a lighter green cardstock and then used a copic marker to add definition to the buds.

I then created the background by die cutting an A2 panel of white cardstock with the Geometric Cover Die. I then adhered the panel to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. Next, I die cut white cardstock with the largest die from the Ticket Frames Die Set. I then adhered the negative from the frame onto the card front. Next, I adhered my flowers and then finished the card with a sentiment created with the Label Maker Sentiment Combo.

Hero Arts June My Monthly Hero Countdown

Hello friends!! It’s the second day of the countdown to the June My Monthly Hero Kit!! The new kit and add-ons will be released on Monday, June 6 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific.

Since this is day two you probably have already guessed this month’s theme, but if not, hit hit think Ariel.😉 And if you haven’t seen the incredible creations shared yesterday be sure to check them out here you won’t be disappointed.

The card I’m sharing today focuses on some of the more supplemental images in the kit but I love how when used together you can still create a whole scene and even a little story.

To create first stamped the seaweed image twice onto a small rectangle panel in INTENS-ified Black Ink. I the colored the seaweed and created a little underwater scene with copic markers. After I colored the panel I then stamped a third seaweed and the shellfish onto a scrap of white cardstock in INTENS-ified Black Ink.

I then colored these images as well and then die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I adhered the diecuts to the panel with liquid adhesive. I then stamped a sentiment from the stamp set in the upper right corner in INTENS-ified Black.

Next, I adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base made from Pebble ca

rdstock with foam adhesive. Lastly, I finished the card by creating a pearl with the White Hero Pearls.

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

Hero Arts Mixed Media Release and Blog Hop

Hero Arts Mixed Media Release and Blog Hop

Hello friends!! Today the Hero Arts summer catalog releases and with it a bunch of new mixed media stamps, dies and products!!

I have two projects to share today. The first is a card featuring several of the new stamp sets.

To create this card I first ink blended the front of an A2 top-folding Dove White card base with Taffy, Grape Slush, Pool Party, Blue Hawaii and INTENS-ified Black Ink. I then die cut a moon with the Dream Catcher Fancy Dies out of scrap cardstock and used the diecut as a mask and ink blended over the card front with the same inks.

Next, I thoroughly dried my card front then stamp and bronze heat-embossed a stamp from the Tiling Textures Stamp Set. When I stamped the texture stamp I used a ripped piece of paper as a mask to create a rounded edge. I then finished the background by splattering water-down Unicorn ink to create the look of stars.

I then die cut 3 more moons out of Pitch Black cardstock and adhered them together. I then pressed the stacked die cut into Embossing & Watermark Ink and then heat-embossed it in Copper. Next I die cut the three layers of each feather out of Dove White cardstock and then adhered them together. I then die cut a string out of Pitch Black cardstock and then I adhered it, the moon, and feathers to the card front.

Lastly I finished the card with a Copper heat-embossed sentiment strip made with the Art Journal Messages Stamp Set.

My next project is a little different, I used the Dream Catcher Fancy Dies to create earrings!

To create these earrings I first die cut six layers of the moon a six layers of each feather out of Dove White cardstock. I then ink blended four of the moons with Taffy, Grape Slush, Pool Party, Blue Hawaii and INTENS-ified Black Ink and then splattered with a water-downed Unicorn ink. Next, I adhered the blended moons onto a plain moon and then adhered these onto another blended moon to create two stacked moons with color on both sides.

I then press a third of two diecut leaves of each style into Embossing & Watermark Ink and then heat embossed in Copper. Next, I adhered two matching leaves to the backside of the embossed leaves. I then sprayed the moon and leaves with a Matt fixative spray and allowed them to dry. Lastly I finished the earrings with jump rings to attach the feathers to the moons and the moons to the hooks.

Pretty Pink Posh May Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Pretty Pink Posh May Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello friends!! I’m super excited to be joining the fun today over at Pretty Pink Posh celebrating their May release!! Today is the first day of this 3-day blog hop and I so excited to share with you my card create with these incredible release!

First off everything in this release is darling! I especially love all the new layering stencil sets and the fun crafty themed products! But the minute I saw the gorgeous new Spring Foliage Dies and the Layered Spring Flowers stencils I was instantly inspired.

To create this card I first ink blended the first layer of the Layered Spring Flowers lightly over the front of an A2 top-folding white card base with several Distress Inks (Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade & Mustard Seed). I then ink blended over the second layer of the flowers with the same inks but more heavy-handedly this time. Next, I positioned the final layer for the flowers, the flower centers, and ink blended them in Ripe Persimmon. Once I had finished ink blending the background I added white highlights to the flowers with a white gel pen.

I then moved onto creating my floral heart. To create my heart I first die a bunch of flowers and flower centers using the Spring Foliage Dies out of white cardstock. I then adhered the flower centers to the flowers and then arranged them into a heart-shaped wreath. When I had my wreath complete I then picked up all the flowers with a sheet of press-n-seal, flipped the wreath over and added foam tape to the backside. Next, I removed the backing on the tape and adhered the wreath to my card front.

I then die cut three “Celebrate” out of white cardstock using the Celebrate Script Die, adhered them together and then adhered my stacked sentiment to the card front. Next, I stamped and white heat-embossed a sentiment from the new Celebration Scripts Stamp Set, trimmed it down to a strip and added it to the card front with foam adhesive. Lastly, I finished the card with some iridescent sequins.

GIVEAWAY:
Pretty Pink Posh is giving away 3 $30 gift certificates (one winner for each day of the 3-day blog hop). Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 5/22/2022. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog.
