Hero Arts Nature Challenge #3

This is the third entry for the Hero Arts Nature Challenge.

I'll have to split up the 3 entries into separate post or I can't link them back. You can see #1 here and #2 here.

Last, but not least. I have to admit, this ones kinda my fave...

Hero Arts "Thanks A Bunch" digital die cut (Silhouette Online Store (SIL)). For this, I welded the element to the dimensions of the card panel I wanted using the Silhouette Designer Edition software and then cut it out using my Silhouette Cameo 2 so it would all be one piece. I basically turned it into a border die. 
Hero Arts Back To School (HrA or AZ) for the apples.
Copic Markers (AZ) for the apples, blue background and strip, as well as the sentiments and strip. 
Ranger Distress Ink in Vintage Photo (AZ) for the panel.
Neenah 110lb. Cardstock for the panel with the apples and sentiment (AZ) and and AC Cardstock for the card base and panel (ASBS).

I currently own a total of 10 Copic Markers and 8 of those 10, were used on this card. I tried really hard to work with what I had. I was really tempted to go get a few more, but alas, I was a good girl and didn't. My resolve will not last much longer I tell ya!

So there you have it! I said in my last post that I've been making my own stencils a lot lately and I hope to show more of what I've made using them soon. Also, I can understand the need and the appeal for a steel die on occasion (can you say ADORABLE), but I'm loving the idea of being able to use my Silhouette Cameo 2 with names like Hero Arts. I've always loved their products, but up until now have mostly concentrated on 3D paper crafting. I exclusively use SVG Cuts files for that. Most of us who do those particular projects on a continual basis, don't branch out much to inks, stamps, dies, embossing powders, etc. I've come to the realization that card making can be just as gratifying as 3D paper crafting and I've found I'm doing more of this, but having more digital die cut options would be an AH-MAZING addition! Just sayin.

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 …
