Hero Arts Interlocking Gatefold Card w/ Diamond Dies and Layering Stencils!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create an elegant Interlocking Gatefold card today using lots and lots of products from Hero Arts!

To get started, we can take the beautiful Hero Arts Color Layering Stencils – Tulip Bouquet Set. This set contains 4 layers of stencils so that we can easily do the coloring and shading with our blending brushes and ink pads!

Let’s grab a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock to do our blending. We will be using the Hero Arts Small Blending Brushes for this stenciling process and the ink colors today will be using the Hero Arts Core Inks in Green Apple, Fresh Lawn, Pine, Dandelion, Butter Bar and Papaya. These colors will blend together beautifully! We can also quickly spatter these flowers with these same inks!

Now we can begin creating the interlocking mechanism for the front of the card. To do this we will use the fantastic Hero Arts – Infinity Diamond Dies. We will create a frame with these dies by using the largest die and the next smaller die and cut these out 3 times. By gluing the 3 diamonds together we will have a nice solid frame for the interlocking feature! We can also cut the tulips from the smaller diamond die, and this will fit perfectly inside the frame!

Next, we can get started building the card base for our gatefold card and cutting the layers for the card. I’ll show you all of the measurements for cutting and scoring in today’s video!

Now that we have our layering papers cut, we can start the stenciling on these layers. We will be using the Hero Arts – Stencil Square – Stripe! This is a stencil that can be used in a variety of ways but today we will do some simple stenciling using the Dandelion ink and then add ink around the edges with the Papaya ink.

Let’s glue the layers to the inside of the card base and front panels.

Now for the fun part…. let’s add the tulips on the card by gluing only the right-hand side of the diamond and gluing it to the right panel on the card. Next, we can place glue on only the left-hand side of the diamond frame and glue it to the left panel of the card. Be sure to line this up really well with the tulips that you have already glued down.

We can now stamp a few sentiments by using the Hero Arts – Togetherness Flower Bouquet Stamp Set. This set has some absolutely beautiful sentiments and script for all of your cards! y and add an elegant touch to the card!

Sweet Wishes Window Card!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create a sweet window card today using the Ai Sweet Wishes Set (4848) and the Ai Easter Chicks Set (5401). We can stamp our images using a white pigment ink and then emboss them with the Hero Arts White Satin Pearl powder. The pearl embossing powder gives this wreath and the other images such a soft elegant look!

Using the coordinating die from the Sweet Wishes set we can die cut out the center of the wreath to create an opening for the front of our card. We will need to cut the opening in the front panel and the card itself. I will show you exactly how to do this in today’s video!

Next, we can color the images with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Tea Rose, Lt Carmine, Yellow, Mustard, Pale Green, Lt Green.

Now we can use the coordinating dies, our detail scissors, a Xacto knife and cut our images. Let’s also cut a little slit in the chick so that we can place the individual rose in the chick’s hand/wing! We will be using some foam squares to pop-up the bow which will really complete this wreath nicely.

For a pretty background we will use a Hero Arts Blending Brush and the Hero Arts Key Lime Fizz ink to add some color around the edges of the panel. We will also spatter this panel with that same ink!

Let’s also cut another panel for the inside of the card using some Kiwi cardstock. We can blend this and spatter it the same way.

Our sentiment will say “Wishing you every bloomin’ thing!” and we will die cut this using the Ai Nested Square Dies (5725). The sentiment is from the Ai Mrs. Set (5405). We can add some white stitching around the sentiment using a white gel pen. This will give our sentiment a cute look! I’ll tell you a little secret about the sentiment choice and change in the video…shhh!

Finally, let’s add some Hero Arts White Pearls to the wreath for added bling and dimension. This white pearl matches the white satin pearl powder perfectly!

***NEW*** Art Impressions Watercolor Roses!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today’s card was inspired by the new Art Impressions “You’re a Gem” Blog Challenge!  The challenge is to use a bit of bling on your card or project. I’m honored to be the featured artist for this fun new challenge!

I’ve got a beautiful brand-new watercolor set to show you from Art Impressions called WC Roses (5831). This set contains several different roses and a few leaves and sprigs. I love this little set because it is so versatile and can be used with so many of your other sets!

We are going to do a bit of simple water-coloring today using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Lt Pink, Peach Pink, Pink, Geranium Red, Scarlet Red, Yellow, Lt Green, Green. However, we will be using a water-brush and the Zigs together for a very loose watercolor look! I love this coloring technique because it is so easy and doesn’t have to be perfect.

While we have our Zigs at hand, we can add a few spatters in the pinks and yellow/red colors. This will tie everything together!

Let’s start by die cutting two panels using the Ai Nested Rectangle Dies (5724) in white and pink cardstock. We will stamp and emboss several roses from this new set using one of my favorite embossing powders in Liquid Platinum. We will stamp the two panels at the same time using the MISTI stamp positioner. This will make the stamping so much quicker and easier. But most importantly it will allow the two panels to be exactly the same and this will be important when we cut the pink cardstock at an angle.

Let’s cut the pink panel … and I will show you exactly how I measured and cut these angles for a fun and unique look on our card!

Now we can pop-up the pink onto the white panel using some 3D Foam Tape for some added interest and dimension.

Next we can add a layer of pretty metallic silver cardstock and attach this whole piece to a white card.

Let’s add a cute little tag using the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543) and a sentiment using the Ai Birthday Sentiments Set (5735). We can also stamp this tag with another rose using the same WC Roses set.

Finally, let’s add more bling by adding a few shiny silver metallic pearls and a few dots of silver using the Signo Gel Pen!

Please join in on this new blog challenge…. I would love to see what you create!

Hero Arts Peonies Bunch – Coloring w/ Distress Watercolor Pencils

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s get started by stamping this beautiful image from the Hero Arts Peonies Bunch Stamp Set and we can also grab the coordinating die set! There is a stencil set available for some easy coloring, however, we are going to do the coloring ourselves using the Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Pencils in the following colors: Picket Fence, Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Rustic Wilderness, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron, Fired Brick. These pencils come in three beautiful sets and are fun and easy to use!

The coloring will take a little bit of time but it is well worth it. But do keep in mind that you could use the coordinating stencil as mentioned above. I’ll show you a few tricks and tips for using these pencils and I’ll also show you how to do an easy highlighting technique!

To create the background we will be stamping the Hero Arts “Script” Bold Prints Stamp onto some Hero Arts Cardstock in Paradise and then embossing it with some white embossing powder. This background stamp is a great staple to have in your stash!

Now we can use a blending brush to go around the edges of this panel with some Hero Arts Reactive Ink in Blue Raspberry. Let’s also spatter this panel with that same ink and also some white ink. While we have the white ink out, let’s also spatter the flowers, to tie everything together!

Next, we can stamp the “Thank you” sentiment from that same stamp set onto some vellum paper and emboss with the white embossing powder.

We can assemble the vellum sentiment strip to this panel and pop-up the flowers with some 3D Foam Tape.

Finally, let’s add some Hero Arts – Hero Pearls in white for added interest and dimension!

Birthday Blessings Card w/ Stenciled Background

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be using one of the wonderful FREEBIE stamps which can be obtained for free with a $30 purchase from Art Impressions. There a several FREEBIE’S available including the Robin that we will be using today, as well as, a Chickadee, the Stellar Jay, a Cockatiel, a sweet Puffin, and a pretty Hummingbird!

To get started we will be using the Ai Rectangle A2 Double Stitched Dies and the Ai Oval Double Stitched Dies to die cut the rectangular panel for the front of the card and to die cut an oval from the center.

To set the scene, we can use a beautiful leave stencil to create a background. We will ink this up using a small 1/4″ blending brush so that we can add some shadows to the leaves. This will give our stenciling a lot more dimension and interest!

Now we can select some pretty yellow/gold paper from the Echo Park paper pack for the opening in the oval. We will ink this up around the edges of the oval using a coordinating ink.

Let’s stamp our little robin and color it in using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Yellow, Orange, Lt Gray, Platinum Brown.

We can use our detail scissors to cut this out, leaving a little white border all the way around.

Next, we can die cut a lattice border (Ai Pocket Set) and some leaves/sprigs (Ai Journal Rectangle Frames), and a pretty flower (Ai Journal Oval Frames).

We can give the leaves and flowers a bit of dimension using our sculpting tools.

Before we complete the assembly we can add a few sentiments from the Ai Birthday Sentiments Set. This will say “Birthday Blessings” and “May your every wish come true!”.

Let’s assemble the card and add a few iridescent stars to the oval area and a pretty gem to the center of the flower!

Easy Watercolor Technique with 3-D Embossing Folders…and Hot Foiled Sentiments!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Today we will be creating two elegant embossed cards using a simple and easy watercolor technique!

To get started let’s take a look at the beautiful embossing folder that we will be using today which is the Sizzix 3-D Textured Impressions – Wildflowers.

Now we can open the embossing folder and apply some Tim Holtz Distress Ink (lighter color first) on the top portion of the folder and then we can run this through our die cutting machine. For the second card we will apply the ink to the top of the embossing folder and then spritz it with a bit of water and run it through.

For the first card we will be using a combination of the Kistch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry inks and for the second card we will be using the Scattered Straw and Abandoned Coral inks. These color combinations are just gorgeous but have some fun playing around with your favorite colors.

Next we can grab a #6 Round Brush and water to blend out the inks a little bit. Now let’s take the darker color and load the brush up with plenty of water and then pick up the darker color and apply some to the centers of the flowers and into some of the crevices of the embossing folder. You can apply as much or as little of this darker color as you like.

Now we can spatter each of these card panels with the darker color. We will use that same larger #6 brush so that we get some large spatters!

To create the sentiments we will be using the Creative Expressions “Smile” Wordies Sentiment Sheets. These sheets are loaded with sentiments and are designed to be used with your Hot Foiling System or simply used just the way they are.

In this video I will give you a few tips for foiling these sentiments. We will use the Spellbinders Glimmer Foil in Polished Brass and Silver.

Next we can assemble the card using some black cardstock to make the sentiment and the background pop out a little bit better!

Finally, let’s add a few pretty metallic gems from Pinkfresh Studio in Silver and Sparkling Champagne!

Spellbinders Christmas Blooms w/ Embossed Vellum (Hidden Adhesive Technique)!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we are going to create a very elegant holiday card by combining some embossed vellum, beautiful blooms, and a pretty bow!

We will be embossing some vellum paper for the front of our card using the gorgeous Spellbinders Embossing Folder – Forevergreen. I’ll show you a couple of tricks for attaching this to your card front without any glues or adhesives showing on your card.

Next we can add a beautiful bow using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits – Bowtied Colorize. This is so easy and fun to create and would be great on a card front all by itself!

Let’s die cut all of our pretty blooms from the Spellbinders Christmas Blooms Die Set and then we can color them using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Smoky Yellow, Ever Green, Green Gray, Dk Green, Blossom Pink.

We can give our flowers and sprigs a little bit of shaping. Now we can add the bow and florals to our card. We will add a bit of sparkle to some of the sprigs and then add a pretty pearl in the center of each of the flowers!

For this card we will be using a gorgeous Stampendous “Bloom Bright” Clear Stamp Set!

We will use several of the new Zigs including Lt Red Grape, Deep Red Grape, Deep Vermillion, Smoky Yellow, Ever Green, Moss Green, Sand, Aquamarine Blue, and Smoky Teal to color these images.

We will use some Lawn Fawn Textured Dot Cardstock in a pretty green and then we will create a watercolor background to set the scene for our images. I’ll give you a few tips and tricks for creating a beautiful deckled edge to your watercolor paper! We can then spatter the background! Let’s add a bit of black cardstock and layer on the watercolor panel and our flowers! We will do a bit of sculpting on the flowers and then add some iridescent sequins for a bit of sparkle.

Art Impressions Floral Wreath Birthday Card w/ Easy Watercolor Technique

Hello and Welcome!!!

In todays video we will be creating an elegant floral birthday wreath using a combination of images from a few of the beautiful Ai Bible Journaling sets! We will be using the Ai Bible Foliage Set 2 (5418) and the Ai On the Sparrow Set (5170). These sets will give us a wonderful variety of sprigs and flowers to create our floral wreath!

The grapevine wreath will come from the Ai Frameworks Set 1 (5420) which has several images that would work great for creating a floral card or just to frame a special image or sentiment!

We will use some beautiful Rose Gold embossing powder for the wreath and sentiment and this will add a touch of elegance. We will also create a dotted texture to our Blushing Pink layer and this will help to tie everything together!

For inking up our images I will show you a easy and fun watercolor technique. To do this, we will use the Tombow Dual Brush Pens and a mini mister! It is so much fun and the results are just spectacular!

For a finishing touch, we will add some velvet ribbon and some beautiful gems!
