Paper Crafters Unite Against Racism

 Hola everyone! Today I am participating in the  Paper Crafters Unite Against Racism Instagram hop! The goal of this hop is to continue to raise awareness about anti-racism, to stand with our BIPOC friends and family, and to keep encouraging everyone to start the necessary conversations.


For my card, I used the Hero Arts Unity Collection-Kids United and United As One clear stamp sets to create my card. It came together quickly and I hope you will give it a try.

The Hero Arts Unity Collection is a collaboration with Hero Arts, my awesome friend Dana Joy and myself in a conscious effort to be intentionally diverse and inclusive. 


























To create my card, I stamped, colored and fussy cut the image and set it aside. 

I then used the coordinating die five times in Dove White, Pitch Black, Sand, Chestnut and Antique Ivory cardstock. 

adhered the stamped imaged onto the Dove White die-cut. I then arranged and adhered the remaining die-cuts onto a 4"  X 5 1/4" dove white card panel . 


I then adhered the panel onto an A2 side-folding card base in a landscape orientation. 

To complete the card, I stamped and matted the sentiment,  popping it onto the card with foam dots to add dimension.

Have a great rest of your week!

United As One Mixed Media Frame


Hola everyone! Hope you are having a great day. 

My crafty sister/friend Linda is an awesome cardmaker and mix media artist. I asked her to alter a Dollar Store wooden frame so I may add a Hero Arts Unity Collection image to it! 

I loved how the frame turned out! I stamped and colored images from United as One and Kids United to add to the frame! 








Thanks for taking a peek! Have a nice day!

Hey Gnomie!

Hola Everyone! Hope you are having great day! I am sharing two cards I created with the Hero Arts July 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit


This kit takes you into a magical woodland forest filled with fairies, gnomes and much more. The kit includes three ink cubes, stardust sequins and adorable mushroom washi tape. 

Check out my previous posts to see how I used the July My Monthy Hero Kit by clicking the links below...

You're One of A Kind: Gnome 

You're One of A Kind: Mushrooms

I am loving one of the gnome images in the kit! My cards were fun to create and came together quickly. 

To begin, I added panels to two side-folding card bases.

Next, I stamped, colored and die-cut the gnome image three times and set them aside. 

I then blended Splash, Key Lime and Mint Julep inks onto Dove White cardstock and die-cut the letters needed for my cards using the Luggage Tag Alphabet Frame Cuts Set.

Placing the card bases in landscape orientation, I assembled and glued my letters and gnomes using a t-square ruler to ensure a straight line. 

I then added green enamel dots to one of the cards. 

Easy right? I hope you are inspired to give the cards a try! 


Thanks for taking peek! Have a great rest of your week!

You're One of A Kind - Mushrooms

 Hola Everyone! Hope you are having an awesome day! I am enjoying the Hero Arts July 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit

This kit takes you into a magical woodland forest filled with fairies, gnomes and much more. The kit includes three ink cubes, stardust sequins and adorable mushroom washi tape. 

I think the gnomes and mushrooms in the kit are adorable! In addition, one of the kit sentiments: "You're One of A Kind" is perfect to use with other Hero Arts images. 

I had fun creating a slimline card with the mushroom image. To begin I cut Dove White cardstock to 7" X 8 1/2", scored at 3 1/2" on the 7" side and folded thus creating a 3 1/2" X 8 1/2" slimline card.

Next I cut a 3 1/4" X 8 1/4" Dove White panel and stamped the sentiment onto the lower right corner.  

I then glued the panel onto the cardbase.



Next, I stamped, colored and die-cut the mushroom image fives and adhered them to the panel adding "grass"with Copic Markers. 

I then stamped, colored and die-cut the gnome and popped him onto the panel with foam circles for dimension to complete the card. 


I had fun creating my card and hoe you are inspired to give it a try.
Thanks for taking a peek! Enjoy the rest of the week!

You're One of A Kind-Gnomes

 Hola everyone! I hope you are doing well! Today I am sharing a card I created using one of the cute gnome images from the Hero Arts July 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit

This kit takes you into a magical woodland forest filled with fairies, gnomes and much more. The kit includes three ink cubes, stardust sequins and adorable mushroom washi tape. 

My clean and simple card came together quickly and I hope you will give it a try. 


To begin, I stamped the sentiment onto a 3 1/2" X 5" Dove White cardstock panel in the landscape orientation. I then stamped the gnome image five times in black ink onto Dove White cardstock.  I die-cut the gnomes and adhered them to the panel, gluing one gnome upside-down. 

When I re-create the card, I may color one of the gnomes instead. Or alter one to add sunglasses or a tutu! Anything to make one gnome stand out from the others!  


Next, I matted the panel with Pitch Black cardstock and adhered it to an A2 side folding card base

Easy right? This card would make a nice Thank You or Just Because card. 

Thanks for taking a peek! Enjoy the rest of your week!

You Are Fabulous!

 Hola Everyone! Hope you are having a great day so far! I want to share I card I created with Flamingo Floatie by Neat and Tangled


As you may notice, I altered the image and added an afro. I love making images look like the person that will receive my card! 

To create my card, I stamped, colored and altered the adorable girl on the flamingo floatie. I then fussy cut her out removing the additional hair that appeared behind her right arm. 
 

Next, I glued the image to patterned paper matted onto 3 1/2" X 4 7/8" blue cardstock.  I then stamped the water and splashes in blue ink

To continue I cut the sentiment in the set "trust me you are" in half and stamp "you are" and "fabulous"in black ink


To complete the card, I adhered the panel onto a top-folding A2 white card base. 

I hope you enjoyed my card! Have a happy rest of your day! 

Remember: You are FABULOUS! 

Thanks for taking a peek!
