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.

Hero Art May My Monthly Hero Countdown

Hero Art May My Monthly Hero Countdown

Hello crafty friends!! Today starts the three day countdown till the new My Monthly Hero release!! The minute I got my hands on this release I was inspired! With gorgeous tile background stamp and detailed full panel die I knew exactly what direction I wanted to go, Brady Bunch kitchen! 😂

To create this card I first stamped the tiled background stamp over the front of an A2 top-folding white card base in Soft Olive Shadow Ink. However, I did position the stamp so the tiles would be vertical instead of horizontal. After I stamped the card front I then colored tiles with several orange copic markers.

Once I had finished coloring the tiles, I then popped the card front back into my MISTI and stamped the card front once more in Soft Olive ink to create a bolder and crisper image. Next, I die the full panel die out of Dove White cardstock. I then die cut the very bottom openings of the kitchen out of Sand cardstock. I then adhered the white kitchen to the card front with foam adhesive and then inlaid the Sand bottom sections to the card front.

Next, I die cut a turkey using the included dies out of white cardstock. I then hand cut a swirl of smoke out of vellum and then adhered it to the turkey. Next, I adhered the turkey and smoke to the card front with foam adhesive. I then finished the card with a white heat embossed sentiment stamped with the included 4 x 6 stamp set onto Sand cardstock and then fussy cut out.

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

Waffle Flower Crafts April Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Waffle Flower Crafts April Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!! Welcome to the Waffle Flower April 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 first two cards feature the awesome Abstract Foil Plate and one of my favorites from this release, the Outlined Hello Die.

To create these cards I first hot foil two white panels (8″ x 5 1/2″) with the Abstract Foil Plate. I learned you could foil on top of foil, so I foiled multiple times over these panels. For one panel I just used Rainbow foil but for the other panel I used several different metal foils (Polished Brass, Silver, Aura, Pewter, and Copper). When I finished foiling the panels I then trimmed them down to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ with the A2 Layers Dies and then adhered then to two A2 top-folding white card bases.

Nexts I die cut four “hello’s” out of white cardstock and one vellum mat using the Outlined Hello Die. I then adhered three of the white “hello’s” together and then adhered the vellum layer on top and finished the stacked sentiment with the last white “hello” on top of the vellum. Next I repeated this process to create a second stacked “hello”.

I then stamped and heat-embossed a sub-sentiment from the Oversized Hello Stamp Set onto black cardstock. Next, I trimmed the sub-sentiments down to strips and then finished the cards by adhering the sentiments to the card fronts.

My last card features the beautiful Organic Floral Foil Plate and Organic Floral Coloring Stencil as well as the Outlined Hello Die again.😆

To create this card I first hot foiled a panel of white cardstock with the Organic Floral Foil Plate in Aura foil. I also hot foiled the remaining Aura foil using the Solid Foil Plate. Then with the Organic Floral Coloring Stencil, I ink blended the flowers and leaves over both panels with several Distress Oxide (Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Speckled Egg & Evergreen Bough).

When I finished ink blending I then trimmed the first panel down to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and adhered it onto an A2 top-folding white card base. I then die cut some of the image out of the second panel with the Organic Floral Matching dies.

I then created a stacked “hello” in the same manner I did for the last two cards with the Outlined Hello Die. I also created a sub-sentiment with the Oversized Hello Stamp Set but this time I heat-embossed over a scrap of the foiled Aura. I then trimmed the sub-sentiment down to a strip and finished the card by adhering the stacked “hello”, sub-sentiment, and diecuts to the card front.

Hero Arts April My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hero Arts April My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!! The April My Monthly Hero Kit now available!! This fun and floral April kit is a celebration of spring as well as the amazing people in all of our lives. It features a gorgeous cling background with bees and flowers. Three layering stencils make the coloring process easy; simply pair them with the inks and blending brush included in the kit, and you’ll quickly have cards in fresh spring colors. Combine the “amazing” word die with the mix and match messages in the stamp set for expressing thanks, celebrating birthdays, sending Mother’s Day greetings and more. There’s also dies included for highlighting select images from the background, and the kit is rounded out with enamel embellishments which complement the ink colors perfectly.

Kit Contents:

  • 3″ x 4″ Clear Stamp Set
  • 6″ x 6″ Cling Stamp
  • 3 6″ x 6″ Color Layering Stencils
  • 3 Frame Cuts
  • Word Fancy Die & Frame
  • 3 Ink Cubes (Rose Madder, Green Apple, Cotton Candy)
  • Ink Blending Brush (size may vary)
  • Spring Enamel Dots

Kit Value: $75 Kit Cost: $34.99

My first card features almost every product included in this kit! When it all just works together so well its hard not to use it all.

To create this card I first stamped the cling stamp in INTENS-ifed Black Ink onto Dove White cardstock. I then colored the images in using the layering stencils and several Reactive Inks. I used Taffy and Creamsicle for the larger flowers and Thistle and Purple Galaxy for the smaller flowers. I also used Key Lime Fizz and Blue Raspberry for the leaves. For the bee, however, I copic colored it with a couple yellows and a light blue for the wings. I then finished the images by adding a highlight with a white gel pen.

Once I had finished coloring the images I then die cut the ones out that had a matching die out and fussy cut the rest. Next, I die cut three “amazing’s” out of Dove White cardstock and one mat layer out of vellum. I then stacked and adhered the “amazing’s” together, sandwiching the vellum mat between two white cardstock layers.

Next, I stamped and white heat-embossed sub-sentiments onto an A2 top-folding Peony card base. I then adhered the images and the “amazing” with liquid glue and foam adhesive. Lastly I finished the card by adhering a couple clear sequins.

My second card features one of the add-on stamps from this release, the Flowers and Swirls Bold Prints.

To create this card I first ink swiped over the front an A2 top-folding white card base with several Reactive Inks. I used Lemon Drop, Pool Party, Taffy, Grape Slush, and Blue Hawaii Reactive Ink CUBES and gently swiped the ink pad over the card front to create this stripy, somewhat plaid-like background.

When I finished with the Reactive Inks, I then stamped the Flowers and Swirls Bold Prints over the card front in INTENS-ified Black Ink. I then made a stacked “amazing” out of black cardstock and vellum using the word dies from the April My Monthly Hero Kit and adhered it to the card front.

Lastly I finished the card by stamping, white heat-embossing, and fussy cutting sub-sentiments, then adhering them to the card front with foam adhesive.

GIVEAWAY:

Hero Arts will be giving away a $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, April 10th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.
