Hero Arts Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays

Howdy! It is time to get some Christmas cards done. For my card today I used the Hero Arts Home for the Holidays stamp and die sets. There are so many cute things to make up a scene.

Home for the Holidays

To create this little scene I started by doing some ink blending with Distress inks on an oval, that I cut out, using two different colors of blue.  I cut a hill using a die and glued that over the ink blended oval. There is a little bit of glitter along the top of hill which might be kind of hard to see.

For the houses I stamped them and colored them using Copic pens. For all of the snow I used a Quickie glue pen and then sprinkled on ultra fine glitter. The glue pen worked really nice to get in the small areas and cover the roof of the brown house. I stamped the smoke for the chimneys with Oxide Distress ink in gray. I really like that smoke stamp in this set.

I stamped the trees and die cut them along with the snowman. On the snowman I also used the Quickie glue pen and he got some glitter too. For his hat I colored it with a black Glaze pen. For his scarf I used a Copic pen.

The sentiment is also from the Home for the Holidays set but I did a little altering. It is actually We wish you a Merry Christmas. I like that sentiment but it was a bit to long so when I inked up the stamp I just  covered the first part with paper so there wasn’t any ink on that part.

To frame it I used an oval die from the Hero Arts Nesting Oval Infinity Dies to cut an opening in a panel.
