Hero Arts My Monthly Hero February 2017

Hey folks!

I am stopping in today to share a few more cards with you all! If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen that I shared one of these a couple of weeks ago. If you don't follow me, well then you didn't see it, and you should follow me on Instagram.

I'm a day or two late using the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero February 2017 Kit folks. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE their kits, but I still can't seem to find another 12 hours in the day. So...what d'ya do? Hero Arts Kits are LOADED with crafty goodness peeps and they sell out super fast! This is sold out as well, but it's never too late to sign up for future kits. Plus free shipping! Woot!


So for all of these cards, I decided to try something a lil bit different. Different for me anyway. This time to I used one of the dies that came in the kit. I know, I know I probably chose the smallest one out of all of them, but I almost NEVER use dies, so I'm stoked.

Anyway, I stamped my Girls on some Ranger- Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. I wasn't sure where I was going with these coloring wise and this was handy. Then used the die and my Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine to cut them out.

For my first card, I colored her in with Copic's. If you're interested you can see my color choices below. I adore this sentiment and thought the rainbow umbrella would be perfect!


For this card, I colored her in with Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I gotta be honest, this is probably my least fave, but I'm committed to the cause of sharing all that I do, so her ya go folks.

On all 4 of my cards, I stamped the Raindrops from the Stamp Set on Neenah White Card Stock with Versamark Ink, then heat embossed it with Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder. I promise it pops in real life!


For my third and fourth cards I decided to finally do some watercoloring. So for both I used Tombow Dual Brush Pens and a Silver Black Velvet #4 Brush.

Before I added my Girls to their respective cards, I masked off an area on all of the cards with some Post-It Tape. Then using Hero Arts Inks in Indigo Bold Hybrid, Pool Mid-Tone Ink and Soft Sky Shadow Ink and a Ranger Ink Blending Tool, I carefully blended them on to the panel.


Last, but certainly not least, I used a Copic Multiliner and a T-Sqaure Ruler and added faux frames to all 4 panels. Using Copic's in C0, C3 and C5 I added some shading to the "frames."

I popped my Girls up on the panel using Scotch Foam Tape, added some Clear Wink of Stella to their umbrella's and called it a day.

That's it! Easy peasy.

As always, thanks so much for stopping in to see me today. I hope you enjoyed my cards!

Until next time!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a suer easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a …

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
