Christmas Tree Pieces Fancy Dies|Hero Arts

 Hola everyone! Hope your day is going well. Today I am sharing a card I created with the Christmas Tree Pieces Fancy DiesIt is one of the optional add-on products that complement the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero October Kit:Victorian Christmas. 

The set is perfect for cards and other projects as it includes twelve dies in all, including ornaments, candles, presents, and even an angel. 

I love non-traditional colors for holidays. My favorite for Christmas are teal and pink and my card reflects those colors. It was fun to create and I hope you will give it a try. 


To begin, I die-cut Large Snowflakes several times in Dove White cardstock and glued them to a 4" X 5.25" white cardstock panel, cutting off the excess. I love the look of a tone-on-tone background. 

I then adhered the panel to a top-folding A2 Dove White card base.   

To continue, I die-cut the Christmas Tree one time in Chestnut cardstock and four times in Paradise cardstock. I layered the Chestnut tree onto three of the trees. I blended Blue Raspberry and Pool Party inks on the the fourth tree for dimension and glued it onto the tree stack. I then adhered the tree to to card panel. 

Next, I die-cut the ornaments and star several times in Glitter Paper Holiday Sparkle-Silver. I made one additional star die-cut in white cardstock and colored it yellow. 

I then layered the star and backed it with the yellow star and adhered it to the tree. 

I adhered the silver ornaments to the tree along with Icicle Sequins and Pink Hero Hues Enamel Dots.

Next, I heat embossed "Merry Christmas" from the October 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit 6" X 8" clear stamp set in silver onto white cardstock. Once trimmed, I back it with Paradise cardstock.

To complete my card I popped the sentiment strip on the tree with foam squares.


Thanks for taking a peek at my card.  Enjoy the rest of your day.

Rocking Horse Christmas Note Card

Hola everyone! Hope your day is going well! Have you taken a peek at the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero October 2021 Kit yet?  This month's kit includes Victorian Christmas-inspired imagery in a large 6"x8" stamp set. The classic toys images included in the set really caught my eye!

I love non-traditional colors for Christmas. I also like to attach note cards to gifts and there is more room for a personalized note.  


To create my note card I cut Paradise cardstock to 3 7/8" square. I then heat embossed "Merry Christmas" from the kit in gold onto the panel. 

I adhered the panel to a 4.25" square Dove White card base. 

Next, I heat embossed the rocking horse from the kit in gold on Dove White cardstock. I die-cut the rocking horse and adhered it to the card. 

I created an envelope using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. My white cardstock measured 7" square with a score line of 2.75". 

Quick, easy and elegant right? A great card to mass produce. I hope you are inspired to give the notecard a try. 

If you have not purchased your kit yet, grab one! Once it is gone...it is gone! 



Thanks for taking a peek at my card.  Enjoy the rest of your day.

You are Made of Stardust & Magic

 Hola everyone! Hope you are having a great day! Today I am sharing a card I created with the newly released Oak Fairy by Sweet Sentiment. My card was fun to create and I hope you will give it a try. 

To begin, I embossed the Sizzix Woodgrain Texture Fade by Tim Holtz onto a white 4" X 5.25" cardstock panel. 

I swiped Vintage Photo Distress Ink across the panel several times, spritzed it with Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist and adhered it to a white top-folding A2 card base.

Next, I created a black frame with stitched rectangle dies and glued it to the card front. 

I stamped the Oak Fairy onto Sweet Sentiment Premium Coloring Paper, colored, fussy cut and adhered it to the card front. A coordinating Sweet Slice Die is available, but I preferred to fussy cut. 

I added a bit of sparkle to the wings with Clear Wink of Stella

To continue, I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Sentiment Stardust and Magic clear stamp set in black ink, backed it with black cardstock and adhered it to the card. 

To complete the card I sprinkled a few sequins onto the card. 

I hope you were inspired by my card today.

THREE ROOM STUDIO SATURDAY CHALLENGE #56-USE LEAVES

Hi everyone! Today's Three Room Studio Challenge is: Include Leaves. My card was fun to create and I hope you will give it a try. 

I used Three Room Studio's Just A Moment digital image along with the Let's Hygge clear stamp set to create my card. Unlike traditional clear or rubber stamps, digital images are easily stored on your computer and can be printed in the size of your choice. 

Digital images are also reasonably priced. 

For my card, I downloaded the Just A Moment digital image and resized it so I may fit six to a page. Next I printed the image onto copy paper and white cardstock. 

I colored one image on the cardstock sheet and cut it to 3.75" X 4.25". I then fussy cut an image from the copy paper to create a mask. 

I placed the colored image onto my stamp positioning tool and placed the mask onto the image. I then stamped the A Medley of Fall Collage image by Picket Fence Studios onto the image in black ink.

Next, I cut the image down to 3.25" X 4" and matted it with black cardstock. 

I then adhered the panel onto a white A2 side-folding card base. 

To complete the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Let's Hygge set in white ink onto a .25" X 3.50" black cardstock strip.

I hope I have inspired you today. Please stop by the Three Room Studio Blog to participate in the challenge. One lucky participant per month will win a $15 gift certificate to the Three Room Studio shop.

Books and Bears Bookmark|Sweet Sentiment

Hola everyone! Hope you are having a great day!  Today I am sharing a bookmark created with the newly released Books and Bears clear stamp set by Sweet Sentiment

I decided to create a bookmark and personalize it for my granddaughter Ariah as she loves to see her name in print. It was fun to create and I hope you will give it a try. 


To begin, I stamped and colored the adorable image onto a 3" X 8" piece of Sweet Sentiment Premium Coloring Paper. This paper is unique as it has a slight shimmer built into its fibers.   

I then die-cut the image with a 2" X 7" nesting slimline die. I die-cut the next size: 2.25" X 7.25" in cherry cardstock to back the image. 


Next, I applied alphabet stickers to spell Ariah's name. To complete the bookmark, I adhered three paper punched cherry hearts. I plan to laminate the bookmark. 

I love this quick and easy project and will create a few more. 

Thanks for taking a peek. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Magic Beans

Hola everyone! Hope your day is going well! Today I am sharing a card I created with the newly released Magic Potion clear stamp set by Sweet Sentiment

To take a peek at a card I made previously with this set..click HERE

I love the coffee sentiment in the set and wanted to highlight it. 

To begin, using the Urchin Mandala stencil, I blended Just Rust and Caramel inks onto Sand cardstock measuring 4" X 5.25". 

I then sprayed the panel with Silver Glitter Dust and adhered it to a white A2 side-folding card base. 

Next, I stamped the sentiment onto Sand cardstock with black ink. I re-stamped the sentiment with embossing ink and heat set clear embossing powder onto the sentiment. 


To continue, I die-cut the sentiment using a nesting circle die and used a dauber to add Just Rust ink to make it pop. 

I  placed the die-cut circle onto the panel with Sweet Pops Foam Rectangles for dimension. 



I dotted pearlescent Orange Sherbet Pops of Color around the circle and let dry. 

To complete the card I placed a few gems onto the circle.
