Hero Arts Love & Bold Floral

I, just like everyone else, have been inspired by some recent ombre shading using a stencil inspired by Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire (just search YouTube, you’ll find their videos. :D). I used some MFT Steel Gray card stock as my base and sponged on the gray/black inks in THIS set over the Bold Floral stencil. I die cut the LOVE multiple times from Hero Arts red card stock and layered together; sponged on some Unicorn ink on the top portion of the top LOVE word and once dry, coated in glossy accents. I embossed the small sentiment on vellum, adhered it all together on a red card base and added a black enamel heart.

Valentine – Hero Arts Floral Heart Stamp & Cut

Hello everyone!

It’s Donna here, Happy New Year’s, I wish all of you good health, love and a crafty year!   There is a new challenge that I hope you will play along, the Challenge is “anything goes”.  You can link your project here.  Please be sure that your project contains at least ONE main HERO ARTS Product as the focal element!

anything-goesI am using the cute Hero Arts “Floral Heart Stamp & Cut.  I used some red glitter paper to cut the die out.  I then die cut the “Valentine” from the Hero Arts “Valentine Message and Three Hearts Fancy Dies”.  I used liquid glue to adhere the “Valentine” to the heart die.  I then added some glossy accent to make the “Valentine” stand out.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts “Floral Heart Stamp & Cut” set.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and added the Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and heated it with a hot glue gun.  I finished my card off by adding some Hero Arts rhinestones and twine.

Hero Arts Colourful butterfly

Hi , Dawn here for some more colour for August.   I love colour.  And I love my Hero Arts Stencils and distress inks to make a beautiful coloured background.

Colourful Butterfly

I used Asian Flowers sentiment (currently out of stock) but there are any number of fabulous stencils in the store that would work.  I sponged distress ink onto a Hero Arts Latte card.   I then cut a Die Cut Doily from MFT to use as a base for my Hero Arts Die-cut Butterfly.  I sponged the distress ink on the card before die cut and then added versamark over the colour and used some WOW Sparkle embossing powder to cover it.



I used Hero Arts Hello Stamp and Die to make my sentiment.  I die cut the Hello in black card and used some Glossy accents on it.  The rest of sentiment was stamped directly on the background.  I finished with some home-made enamel dots made with some 3D liquid.
