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 ūüôā

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.

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 ūüôā

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 ūüôā 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 ūüôā I also die cut the bottom page of the page using a scallop die.

And here’s my completed card.

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 ūüôā

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? ūüôā ¬†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.

3 cards from 1 digi kit: Artistic Circles

A fun card today, three card projects using one digi kit that I got from a2z Scrapbooking called Artistic Circle by Hero Arts.

I love working with digital kits as I can resize the images as I want and print them directly from my computer.

For my cards, I wanted to highlight the circles as my main focal point so here you can see each one of them closely. Only minimal embellishment and bright coloring for the circles. I think one can easily make a background pattern paper using these circles, you can fill the background piece with circles and color them with markers or colored pencils.

So which of these would you like?

Have a great day + discount code

Today is the day for the month’s (August) challenge over at A2z Scrapbooking blog!

The theme for the month is Encouragement so I created a light colored card to lift someone’s spirit, the sentiment to match a great day ahead.

I love the bicycle from Hero Arts stamp & die set, just brings so much fun memories when my brother & I used to bike around the school ground when we were just kids, or sometimes hop on with my cousin’s bike to go around our area ūüôā Helmets were non existent at the time and I remember my grandmother restraining me to go biking with my teenager cousins who used to take me for a ride on evenings, I was the younger kid then.

So here, I used the bike as my main image for today’s project share.

I stamped the background with Hero Arts and added a twine for some additional texture.

My card sketch and color inspiration is from Fusion Card challenge, July 31st (The Beach House).

I’m also entering this card to Simon Says Stamp, Anything Goes challenge.

Super bday!

Yesterday was a full packed schedule after work, can’t believe going to bed at 2am!

Anyhow, sharing here a one layer card using stamps from Hero Arts alphabet stamps and Paper Smooches. I did almost a B&W card (since I have a touch of gray) and one spot color which is the light green. A great quick birthday card for boys.

I’m entering this card in A Blog Named Hero challenge # 48, Sheet cake.

Digi Coloring

I shared a coloring project I did last night in my Instagram¬†and had fun working on this digistamp called Woodsy Mae ¬†from Some Odd Girl. I have won this digistamp from SOG’s linky party¬†that I participated previously.

I used two type of markers, for the skin and tree trunk I used copic markers while the rest used promarkers. Comparing the two marker brand, it seems that the copic markers blend well than the latter. This may be different for some users but I’m not really sure. It’s how I find the difference. Copic markers nib is also softer compared to promarkers. I’ll appreciate if you can share some of your experience using these markers if you have tried them both too.

For my background I used hero arts Woodgrain background stamp while the Hello sentiment is from Mama Elephant. I added some Hero Arts flower bling in the grass area for some fun. The scalloped edge is die cut using Lawn Fawn die.

My card layout is from Seize the Sketch # 24.
