Hero Arts

Day 12 {Tuesday with Tara take 379} Hero Arts

Happy Tuesday, and happy Day 12 of the SNS 12 Days of Christmas!  I get to feature another classic stamp company… and yet I’m not using a single stamp on my project today!

I’ve chosen to share a perfect last minute gift wrap idea, featuring a fabulous Hero Arts stencil & a fun die cut set.

Aren’t these gift tags adorable? I just had to use both shapes included in this die set (though I confess the coffee mug is what drew me in!)  I have a ton of creative ideas for these… but Christmas is coming in less than a week, y’all.  I just simply ran out of time!
These little pillow boxes were found at a dollar store and are a perfect blank canvas for so many things.  Since I love using Distress Oxide Inks on Kraft, I chose to pull out some Distress Oxide Sprays to use with this snowflake stencil.  Any holiday design, or even something like simple polka dots, would be perfect for these little packages!  I’ve used Rustic Wilderness for my green & Lumberjack Plaid for the red.   I love the splotchy oxidation on these snowflakes!

Even though I was going ultra simple for these packages & tags, a touch of glitter for the toppers didn’t take me any more time and really looks fabulous.  Sheer ribbon to tie it all together adds a bit of softness.

I’ve got plans to do more of these in different colors- they are perfect for a small gift or some Christmas cash!  They are actually *just* large enough for a simple A2 sized card to fit inside them, as well!

Today you can take advantage of all 12 days of savings & surprises- including the newest, 25% off Hero Arts!  Check out all the fun details across social media (like instagram) and have fun shopping!

Inky hugs & Merry Christmas y’all!

Keeping It Clean and Simple

 

Happy Victoria Day to our Canadian readers! I’m here with some inspiration for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt: CAS. Clean and Simple is my go-to style, so I attempted to be “extra” CAS with today’s card:

 

 

 

This is my first time using an Anita Jeram stamp – this one is Back Card Bunny, but I chose to give him front-of-card status. (He has a matching die, as well.) Theoretically, this could be a one layer card, but since he’s coloured with Copics and there was a little bleed-through, I adhered my panel to a sand cardbase.

 

If you’re posting a CAS card on social media, be sure to tag it with #snschallenge – you’ll be in the running for a $50 gift certificate to the Scrap ‘n Stamp store!

Hot and Cold Embossing

Hi Everyone!

It’s Susan here with day 28 of the Random Acts of Cardness challenges and todays challenge is to use embossing on your projects. I chose to use an embossing folder (cold) and to heat emboss the sentiment (hot).

I started with the Taylored Expressions Peaceful Poinsettia Embossing Folder and a piece of watercolor card stock cut to 4 x 5 1/4″. I grabbed No.024 Wine Red and N0.052 Bright Yellow and scribbled them onto an acetate sheet.

Next I spritzed it with some water.

Then pressed the watercolor card stock into the puddles of ink until it was all covered.

After I covered the whole panel I dried it with my heat gun. I used the peaceful Poinsettia Embossing Folder to emboss the inked panel then set about coloring it in. I used the same two colors I used for the panel and added No.021 Light Carmine and No.043 Olive Green to color in a few of the flowers and leaves. I did this by adding ink directly to the bottom part of the petal that I wanted to color then using a water brush I blended the color to the full petal. Some petals have two colors and some have the same color twice. Letting it dry after the first layer then adding more of the same shade in a smaller area is a great way to stretch your colors into more shades of the same color. I hope that makes sense.

Once I finished coloring the panel I layered it onto a piece of the dark olive card stock from the Hero Arts Sampler Pack than adhered that to a white card base. I used a clear sparkle pen to add some sparkle to the petals of the flowers.

I used a sentiment from Taylored Expressions Beautiful Baubles Add-ons Stamp Set. I embossed it with white embossing powder onto black card stock then fussy cut it out. I added some craft foam to the back and adhered that to the card.

 

 

Happy Stampin’
and thanks so much for visiting!
Stay safe everyone!!
Susan
