Holiday card with non-holiday stamp set

Hello everyone!

So excited to share a Christmas card today using non-holiday stamp set :) A great way to stretch your stamps isn’t it?

I used the fox from the Small Things stamps set, not a Christmas theme set but rather a general hello, everyday kind of stamp set. I  used traditional red and green inks to show the Christmas colors and also added some buttons and leaves to represent a Christmas holly.

I also added a Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to the fox for some shine.

For the background, I created my own by stamping the circle with white ink, it looks like snow using the white ink pad :)

I also add texture in the green tag paper by stamping the Woodgrain background stamp.

Booo!

I’m sharing today my take in this month’s challenge at Sarah Hurley365 blog. The theme: Halloween.

I only use one stamp set for this card. It’s Sarah‘s Malcolm Strange stamp set. I got the black & white pattern paper from A Few of my Favourite Things March kit. I used it specifically with that skull drawing in there :)

I added a shine in the pumpkins using glossy accents, same thing to the ghost eyes and kitty’s nose. I stacked them together  to show some form of balancing act while Malcolm is looking at them :) I also used the spider web stamp for my card base background.

Mr Snowman

Hi there!

I’m sharing this fun snowman card that can easily be mass-produced.

The Snowman stamp and coordinating dies are one of the new products in Hero Arts Handmade for Christmas release 2014. Love how easy it is to use the snowman as the main focal point for a card and use some bright colors to bring him to life.

You can also use bright reds and other ombre color ink pads to have a variant of this card.

a2z Scrapbooking October challenge

Happy 1st of October!

Can you believe its only few weeks from now and it’s already Christmas! I already started my Christmas card projects last month and so expect me to continue sharing some more in the next coming weeks :)

Today starts the new challenge over at a2z Scrapbooking blog. October theme challenge will be “to use two (2) Hero Arts products” in your entry.

For my card, I used Hero Arts Tree-mendous digital kit. I love the flexibility of digital stamps, easy to re-size or enlarge the image as you want. Here I printed smaller size trees and colored them with markers. I also added Clear Wink of Stella glitter for some shine.

I also added some gems, I arranged them in a way that it will look like snow falling from the sky. I added a vellum behind the trees to focus more on the trees as well and attached it by running a straight stitch using my sewing machine.

For the sentiment, I silver embossed them.

I added red ribbon to complement the red trees too.

Winter Holiday Houses

Hello there!

For today’s project share, I’m using Hero Arts Holiday Houses. I did one card and a tag using one of the houses for the tag.

I love doing card sets and at times its great to do a tag to complement a set. I usually use the tag to match the set that can be given also as gift.

For the projects, I printed and colored them with markers. I added some glitz and detail using white gel pen and clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. On a separate card base, I printed also the trees that comes also with the kit. One great thing about working on a digi kit is that it comes with other elements that you can use in a project.

The snow cap in those houses has some shine to it using the Wink of Stella, the photo didn’t catch that here but it’s so pretty in real life.

The silver sequins add festivity in the scene and this is complemented too by the silver lace ribbon that I used in the bottom of the card.

See how this card sparkle? I love those silvers over white card base.

Here’s the card in full view

For the tag, I printed a bigger tree and colored it with green marker. I also added Wink of Stella on the vines, the same way I did in the houses snow. This time for the house, I tried putting in distress glitter for a change.

The polka dots are from the digi kit too, it has a selection of patter papers that you can also use.

And a full view of the tag, great for the holiday gift. The sentiments are also from the same Holiday Houses digi kit.

Make a Wish! card

Happy Tuesday!

Today is a card share using embellishments that  I have from Sarah‘s kit and random ones I get in the past in Sarah’s shop.  I love putting items together from different kits, just nice to see how they complement even if it’s an individually sold item or from a kit pack.

I used mainly strips of patterned papers. I also stamped the leaves to have an additional color in the card then tucked it in the felt flower.

The two smaller flowers are glittered so I also added some shine in the gray flowers in the left using Wink of Stella clear glitter  pen.

Merry & Bright

Hello there everyone!

Today, I’m sharing a Christmas card using Hero Arts Holiday Houses digi kit.

I love coloring lately with markers and what a better way to color using these beautiful winter homes from the kit.

I selected the houses and re-size some to give an illusion of depth when I arrange them into a card. It will not show very clear in the photos but  I also added some glitter using the Wink of Stella clear glitter pen. Its looks lovely in real life :)

lay hses

I also added some white dots into the houses to give a feel of snow falling into the homes. There are some gems too laid from top going down to mimic a snow fall :) The pattern paper I used in the background is actually one of the digi papers in the kit.

The sentiment I used is also from the same digi kit :) I also die cut the bottom page of the page using a scallop die.

And here’s my completed card.

xoxo Buttons

Hi Friday!

Today is the 5th of the month and this means a new challenge is now up at the Sarah Hurley 365 blog. This month’s challenge – Buttons!

Who wouldn’t love buttons? These are the first supplies I bought when I was starting out creating cards. I may not have tons of them but I love seeing and collecting some for my  fancy. I do use a couple of them in projects and still have a lot waiting to be used.

For the take on the challenge, I use the buttons from Sarah Hurley’s A Few of my Favorite Things Tropical Favourites kit. The letter stamps are from Sarah‘s Block Alpha stamp set.

I did a combination of shapes and fish tail cut banners from Sarah’s kit and Snip N Cut sheet included in the Documented365 kit.  The triangles are from another Documented365 kit.

Christmas & Autumn challenge

Can you believe it’s already the first day of September? Where did the time go? in less than 3 months, we’re about to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year!

Today is the perfect time to start those holiday preparations (lots of cards for me), just in time to prep by joining in this month’s challenge at a2z Scrapbooking blog, this month’s theme- Autumn & Christmas :)

I used the Tree-mendous digikit on this project. I printed the very light green tree at the background then printed two (2) other trees which I cut & colored with promarker. Noticed that I’ve been loving coloring with markers lately? :)  An easy way to bring bright festive colors to digital images.

I popped them using dimensional adhesive and added some glitz using Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.

I have a lot of washi tapes so better use the red one here, and the thin strip with b&w lines on it.

love the glitz on this card, looks much better in real life

I added some silver pearls around the card too.
