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 🙂

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.

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?

A super quick post to share my take in this week’s card challenge for two of my favorite challenge sites.

Since I had the chance to sit down for a while, I did a card for Freshly Made Sketches # 103 challenge.

This time a hybrid card using Sarah Hurley, Book Worm  digital scrapbooking kit. I specially love the papers on this collection, just fit for a back to school theme card.

I’m also entering this card to CAS-ual Friday Back to school challenge, CFC 114.

Pink Sparkles

Hiya! Popping in quickly to share a new card challenge at Sarah Hurley challenge blog. This month’s theme – Pink Sparkles. Use any from pink glitter, embossing powder and anything that sparkles in pink.

I did a hybrid card using Sarah’s Say Cheese digi scrapbooking kit. To keep the theme, I used pink glitters in the strip and sequins in the camera’s lens. I have a special interest in photography and this digi set is just perfect.

The challenge runs for a month so drop by at Sarah’s challenge blog for more inspirations.

I’m entering this card in Hobbycutz challenge # 9, Anything with ‘H‘.  My sentiment “Hello” is just fit isn’t it?
