You Are Amazing|Argyle Pattern Bold Prints

 Hola everyone! Happy Monday! I wanted to remind you that you are AMAZING! I am sharing a card I created using the Hero Arts Argyle Bold Prints and Love You Stamp & Cut XL set. 



To create my card, I heat embossed the Argyle Bold Prints onto Mist card panel and cut into thirds. 

I then matted each third with Bermuda cardstock and silver paper and adhered them to a top folding card base. 

Next, I die-cut "you" in Bermuda and silver, adhered them together with a slight off-sett and adhered it to the card base. 

I stamped a sentiment from the set onto white cardstock and glues it to the card. 

I hope you were inspired today. 

Thanks for taking a peek! Stay amazing!

Happy Holidays Cover Plate|Hero Arts

 Hola everyone! Hope you are well! Today I am sharing a clean and simple card I created with the Hero Arts Happy Holidays Cover Plate. This die is measured perfectly for an A2 card at 4.25" X 5.5". 

My card came together quickly and will be easy to mass produce.  


To begin, I die-cut the Happy Holidays Cover Plate three times in Dove White cardstock. I then glued and stacked the negatives saving the letters for later projects. 

Next, I adhered the stack to a Paradise cardstock A2 top-folding card base.


To complete the card, I die-cut and assembled the Pink and Main Extra Extra Large Bow Dies in Cherry cardstock and glued it to the card. 

I hope I have inspired and motivated you to create a holiday card. 

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

Prehistoric Girl and Boy

 Hola everyone! Happy Friday! Today I am sharing a card using the cute digital images: Prehistoric Girl and Boy from ScrapFlower Estudio's new release. I adore Patricia's images and these were so much fun to work with!


I knew the Hero Arts Gradient Sky Stencil would make a perfect background for the couple. I found the color combo on Dana Joy's & Kristina Werner's free Inks Combos Guide-check out either of their blogs to download one for yourself!

And of course...I gave the images my own twist by adding an afro and head scarf.
