Hero Arts Everything Smiles Hello


Happy Friday everybody,

Cindy here to share a couple projects featuring the Hero Arts Everything Smiles Stamp and Cut.  I love using the small stamp to create my own background, and this set is perfect for that.

I picked some happy colors and stamped the small icons all over a white card panel.  The tiny stars from the Hero Arts Stamp & Cut Thanks set.  I layered this panel on a black panel and then onto a card base.  The ‘hello’ from the Everything Smiles set is white heat embossed on black card stock, and die cut with the larger speech bubble die.  This is mounted with foam adhesive.  I stamped and hand cut the smiley cupcake and glue onto the  speech bubble and added Nuvo crystal drop on the frosting.   This card could double up as a birthday card too.

When I first saw this set in the Hero Arts 2018 Catalog I wanted it to use in my planner.  But, I admit, I am just too lazy to take the stamp out and stamp in my planner and then clean up and put away.   So I thought why not make some stickers I can store in a pocket in my planner and they can be use instantly!  Ding!

I first glue some Stick It adhesive onto white card stock that measures 4 by 4 1/4.  Then I used the two small banner cutting die from the Papel Picardo Frame Cut and die cut 16 banners (one per each smiley icon).  The I popped it back into the cut out slots and secure them with some washi tape in the back.  Next I stamp all the icons and colored with Copic markers.  Ta da!  Now I can just take the banner out, remove the backing (of the Stick it) and add into my planner.

  1. I love the idea of pre-made stickers. I bet they were quick to color and now they are ready to go. Such a cute card too. Great ingenuity.

  2. I’ve never stamped a background successfully but this is soooo cute! I may give it another try 🙂
