More Hero Arts Tropical Flowers

Here is the card that started the roll of Hero Arts Tropical Flower cards. I had the idea and then it was time to Scramble. For those who don’t know it is a Facebook group where someone comes up with a theme and then you pick your 90 minute time frame during the dates that are set (usually about a week) to make a card using Hero Arts products. The theme this time was make a friendship or get well card.

Hero Arts Leaf Pattern Stencil

So first off I made the background. I used a stencil and some Hero Arts ink. It is more lime/bright green in real life than it is in the photo.

Boy I forgot how I made this. I had to go look at my brief write up in Facebook. I put some Pearl alcohol ink on the Tim Holtz Silver Sparkle paper using several different colors. I then stamped the flowers and die cut them. They look very shimmery but in a photo it is hard to capture it well.

The sentiment is stamped.

So this card didn’t quite turn out like I wanted. I was thinking more bright colors so to me some of the flowers are too dark. See below for the recreate.

Supplies:

  • Hero Arts Leaf Pattern Stencil
  • Hero Arts Good Friends stamp set
  • Hero Arts Tropical Flowers stamp set
  • Hero Arts Tropical Flowers die set
  • Hero Arts Reactive Key Lime Fizz ink
  • Alcohol Pearl Inks

Here is the card that is closer to how I pictured it in my mind.

For the background I used a stencil and some Hero Arts ink. It is more lime/bright green in real life than it is in the photo.

For this one I used several colored papers mostly from Hero Arts. I think they came with the retro Christmas My Monthly Hero kit. That would be the first one. I then stamped the flowers using Archival ink and die cut them. I used the Archival since I knew I was going to spray them with Shimmer Spritz. So they do have shimmer but it doesn’t show to well in the photo.

The sentiment is stamped.

Hero Arts Tropical Flowers Hello Card

 

Howdy! How are you all out there? Some challenging times going on right now! I have a tropical flower card to bring a little brightness to your day.

Papertrey Ink Cover Plate Harlequin Die

For the background I die cut a cover plate. I decided for this card I would leave all the pieces in the die cut. A couple pieces fell out so I put them back in and then put a piece of Press’n Seal over the top. I then applied glue all over the back and glued it to a card front. I left the Press’n Seal on there for quite awhile.

The flowers and leaves I stamped, die cut and then sprayed Shimmer Spritz on them.

The hello is also die cut.

Hero Arts Warm Animals

Hello! How is your December going? We are cruising right along to another year done. Since we had Thanksgiving so late this year things are sneaking up on me.

Today I have a cute little animal Christmas card. I made this to enter over at A Blog Named Hero for the November challenge. The theme is muted tones which is kind of a challenge I would say. Hopefully this is muted enough.

My Favorite Things Merry Christmas die

To start my card I stamped the cute animals and colored them with Copics. I was lucky to win the Hero Arts Warm Animals set at a Hero Arts crafty event. I stamped the present a bunch of times and colored with Wink of Stella gold and silver pens and then used a color from each of the animals for the bows. You don’t want to get the gifts mixed up.

I used a stencil to add snowflakes to the background using silver pigment ink.

The hill I had in my stash and it was die cut. I sprayed it with Shimmer spritz which is hard to see in the photo.

The sentiment was die cut and colored with a color that I used on the bear.

The presents have a thick glue dot under each one for some dimension which kind of makes them look like they are floating.

Supplies:

  • Hero Arts Warm Animals stamp set
  • Hero Arts Warm Animals die set
  • My Favorite Things Merry Christmas die
  • Memory Box Tiny Snowflakes stencil
  • Encore silver pigment ink
  • Copic Markers
  • Wink of Stella pens
  • Shimmer Spritz Frost spray

Shimmery Peonies

Shimmery Peonies

I am really liking how this card turned out. Somewhat different for me mainly because of the background. The main background piece is a watercolor piece I had laying around. The next part is a die cut from a Richard Garay die. I like the diagonal stripes and it adds some interest to the background. The flowers are my favorite part. I also had them done quite some time ago. You know that pile of stuff you are going to use some day. The two sets I used for the flowers and leaves is The Ton Large Peony and WPlus9 Modern Peonies. These two go together so nicely.  I heat embossed the flowers and leaves using white powder.  If I remember correctly I colored these with Zig Clean Color or maybe Copics. I don’t have the card anymore to look at. What I do know is the flowers and leaves have a lot of shimmer on them from Sheer Shimmer Spritz the Sparkle one.
