Hero Arts CommUNITY guest designer...


Happy hello blog friends.. I am so excited to share that I was asked to guest design for the Hero Arts CommUNITY. You can see the guest post on the Hero Arts blog HERE


On a piece of Dove White cardstock measuring 4" x 5 1/4", stamp United People Bold Prints with Hero Arts Fruit Punch, Bubble Gum, Creamsicle, Green Apple and Lemon Drop inks. I started with one color and just rubbed the ink from top to bottom the width of the mini ink cube. I then added some Clear Embossing and Watermark ink and stamped the images again. Make sure to leave your stamp in place so it will stamp directly in the same place. Now heat emboss using Clear Detail Embossing Powder. This will make the colors more vibrant.


Cut an A2 panel of Azalea carstockand and adhere your stamped panel using foam tape. Now adhere the Azalea panel to your Dove White card base. Trim one strip measuring 1/4" each of Papaya, Azalea and Cherry cardstock. Adhere them to a piece of Dove White cardstcok at an angle, trim down and add to your colorful background. Stamp the "fabulous" sentiment from the Textured Complimentsstamp set on Cherry cardstock using Clear Embossing and Watermark Ink and heat emboss Detail Black Embossing Powder. Trim down the sentiment and adhere to card using foam tape. Stamp the "you are" sentiment from the same stamp set on Dove White cardstock using Intense Black ink, fussy cut around the sentiment and adhere to card using foam tape.


On a Dove White cardstock panel measuring 3 3/4" x 5", stencil the sun from the Clouds and Grass Scenic Stencil using Lemon Drop ink. Start in the middle and use a light hand when added the ink. Cover your panel with this sun stencil. Stamp every sentiment from the Textured Compliments set on your sunny background using Granite ink. Start at the top and line up two sentiments and stamp. They will not fit completely but that is ok. Stamp the entire panel, just make sure to offset your sentiments when stamping each line.


Cut a panel of Granite cardstock measuring 4" x 5 1/4". Adhere your stamped panel with foam tape to the grey panel and then adhere it to your white A2 card base. Stamp the "you are" sentiment on Dove White cardstock using Intense Black ink, fussy cut around the sentiment, add some foam tape to the back and adhere it to the left, middle side of the card. Stamp the heart from the Textured Compliments set using Granite ink on Dove White cardstock, fussy cut, add some foam tape and adhere to card. Finish with a few Midnight Black Accent Pearls. And that's it! Two beautiful cards made using products from the Hero Arts Unity Collection.


Don't you just love these amazing sets? I had a blast designing with them and I hope that I have inspired you today. Remember to be kind and love everyone. It is a wonderful thing to be able to love everyone. God is amazing.

Thank you all for stopping by.
Have a blessed and wonderful day.

Gracias...


Happy Tuesday blog friends... Today it is all about the cute new Lawn Fawn. You know I had to get a few of the new things. I usually pick out my most favorites, but really I usually love it all but I keep control and pick out a few things and well today are three of the items I bought. So let's get started...


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Pick out one of these cut designs from the new paper pad pint-size patterns Summertime and trim down to 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to your card base using liquid glue.

Die cut this adorable new Mr. Sun die on some of the patterned paper and a piece of bright yellow cardstock. Adhere your pieces together. Oh yeah, you will also need the eyes in black and those cute pink cheeks. Once it is adhere together, set aside and let work on the sentiment. 

Die cut the Giant Outlined Gracias sentiment on more of that cute paper and the backer on white. Adhere them together using liquid glue. I die cut the backer two more times and adhere to the back of the sentiment. This adds dimension. 

Time to adhere Mr. Sun to your card, add some foam tape to the back and add to the upper part of the card in the center. Leave a little room for a small strip of paper that we will adhere in a  little bit. 

Adhere the sentiment right below the Mr. Sun using liquid glue. 

Now let's cut 4 very thin strips of the new Summertime paper and adhere three to the bottom and one at the top. Leave some room between the bottom ones so you can still see that cool background in between. 


How easy was that? Such fun dies and that paper, well don't get me started. I always love the LF paper... I try not to hoard it and use it because it is so fun. 

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a day full of sunshine.

Pretty Pink Posh... Happily Ever After


Welcome blog friends.. I have more to share from the awesome Pretty Pink Posh release. Today it is all about Weddings. My niece is getting married in Dec. and well I can't wait to create a wedding card for here using these sets. Today I am using three things from the new release.... so let's get started.


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Cut a panel on white cardstock A2 size and stencil the new Fancy Lattice stencil using a light blue ink. Use a light hand when adding the ink, we want it to be soft. Now take some grey ink mixed with water and splatter a little ink here and there on your background. Once it is dry adhere it to the card base using liquid glue.

Die cut the NEW Floral Semicircle die on white, blue, green and light blue cardstock. Adhere the floral Semicircle to the plain semicircle. So one your will die cut the floral design on and one you will leave whole. Now let's use the negative pieces from the blue, green and light blue to fill in the floral design.  This is time consuming, but so worth it. Adhere the pieces using liquid glue. 

Add some foam tape to the back of your Floral Semicircle and adhere it to the right side of your card. 

Die cut the Happily Ever After backer on white cardstock and the sentiment on grey cardstock. Adhere them together. Now add a little foam tape and adhere to your card.


No stamping today with all these amazing dies and of course a fabulous stencil for the background. 

Check out the entire release HERE.

Hay There...


YAY! it is Friday and I am so ready for the weekend. The weather has been amazing and I am ready for some weekend fun. I don't know what we will do but my husband and I always seem to have fun... which is a good thing.

Today I am creating with all sorts of fun Lawn Fawn. I am mixing it all up, so let's get started.


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Die cut the Peekaboo Backdrop frame only on a piece of designer paper. I die cut the frame on a piece of Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes papers and I die cut again on LF Stripes 'n Sprinkles paper. 

Adhere the die cut frame to the card base using liquid glue and the negative parts from the other designer paper to the card using liquid glue. 

Stamp out all your fun images from the Hay There, Hayriders, Carrot Bout You and Veggie Happy stamp sets on white cardstock using black ink. Color the images using your favorite medium and die cut or fussy cut the images out. 

Create all your little scenes using liquid glue and foam tape. 

To finish stamp the sentiment on the card from the Hay There, Hayriders using black ink. 


Lots of stamping, coloring and fussy cutting because I did not have any of the coordinating dies. LOL With a pair of good little scissors and my reading glasses... I am good. 

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and the sun is shinning.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Beach time….



Happy Wednesday blog friends.. It is already the 15th of May and I bet you all are getting ready for your summer vacations. This year is flying by so fast. But first let's enjoy the fun of summer. Today I am getting crafty with Waffle Flower Postage Collage Beach Days stencil. It just released and I snagged it up. I am all things beach, so let's get started.


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Die cut the Avery Elle Postage die on designer paper. This die cuts just the frame but hold on to it because that is what you see behind our scene. Set this part aside and let's move on.

Die cut the Waffle Flower Postage Collage Die on white cardstock and stencil the Postage Collage Beach Days stencil on the die cut. It lines up perfectly, all you have to do is to pick your colors and blend away. I then stamped one of the sentiments from the new Beach Tote Sentiments directly onto the background using black ink. I will list the colors below. 

Let's now adhere the die cut frame on the designer paper to the stenciled background using liquid glue. Because the large die is just a frame you will have to line it up where it can touch and glue those edges. Now add some foam tape to the back and adhere it to your card. 


That is it... so easy, right?  I just LOVE this stencil set. 

That is all for today.

Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Pick one of the Just Because Daily Details sentiments and cut apart. This page has many tags, sentiments and fun designs to choose from. I added some foam tape to the back and added it to the left side of the card. 


Let's add some of the Just Because Ephemera Icons Butterflies. I picked three of them and added them to my card using foam dots just in the center, so you can fluff the wings. 


Such an easy card to create but so full of love with this sentiment and well who doesn't love butterflies... Right? 


Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Cut some of those Just Because Borders apart to create your background. They all go together, so go wild. Adhere them using liquid glue.


Cut a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 rectangle of the Dancin' Daisies backer yellow striped paper and add some foam tape to the back and adhere it to the center of the card. 

Pick another one of those Just Because Daily Details sentiments and trim it down to fit the center of the square we just added. Put more foam tape to the back and adhere it to the center of the square. 


To finish, let's add one of those pretty Just Because Puffy Stickers flowers to the O on the You. Don't you just love the shine? I do!

So many fun ways to use the Daily Details if you are creating Scrapbook pages or if you are a card creator like me... it is fun for all.

I know I have and today I am sharing a fun card that I designed using some of the new release and some of the older release. Just shows you how so many of there products go together perfectly... so let's get started.

Create your shaker on the top part of the hat and instead of using acetate I used vellum and filled my shaker with the new Celebration Shaker Beads. Once you have your hat put together, stamp the sentiment on the white part using the Simple Sentiments Stamp Set in black ink. Now adhere your grad hat on the card using foam tape. 

Die cut the Large Celebrate Shadow Die on dark pink and white for the backer. Adhere them together and then add some foam tape to the back and adhere to your card.
